Donny says relationship “ended the day the race was over,” Alison says he’s lying.
Obnoxious Big Brother 4 star Alison and her alleged boyfriend Donny were the second team eliminated from The Amazing Race 5 on Tuesday, going from first place to last place after taking a slower bus instead of a cab or faster bus. How are they doing now? Donny tells TV Guide, “There’s no relationship whatsoever. There’s no speaking terms or anything. It ended the day the race was over.” However, Alison says, “No, that’s not true. I moved in with him and his family for a couple of months after the race–I don’t know why you’re deciding to lie. Things were actually fine after the race for a while. Then, I found out that Donny was not only verbally rude to me, he was cheating on me as well. So I decided to leave him.” Donny replies, “That’s a good one, but no.” So clearly, the dysfunction has left their relationship.
