Travis and Sarah go into hiding, won’t let their families talk to the media

An unconfirmed, sketchy rumor that Bachelor 8 couple Travis and Sarah have broken up may not be so sketchy after all.

First, Nashville’s “Channel 2 reported in its 4:30 p.m. newscast that the couple has split,” according to The Tennessean. The paper doesn’t mention the channel’s source, however, and their site only has an annoyingly sexist report on the show.

More significantly, an ABC spokesperson said that “Sarah and Travis have requested to spend some time together alone this week. We are respecting their request.” That amounts to “a gag order on Vanderbilt ER Dr. Travis Stork and Nashville kindergarten teacher Sarah Stone … and their friends and family, even ones who have been talking to media for weeks,” the paper reports.

Travis was also at work in the ER yesterday, and “no one yesterday was discussing Stone and Stork’s current status.”

Eaten Alive

Discovery Channel’s happy family holiday special Eaten Alive aired Sunday, rewarding viewers for their two full hours of viewing by ensuring that they spent quality time in the company of others instead of wasting that time doing something else that might not have been as satisfying, such as buying things that have labels which accurately reflect their contents.
