Bachelor’s Jake and Vienna broke up

Another Bachelor couple has broken up: Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi ended their relationship less than four months after their engagement aired on TV on the finale of the show’s 14th season.

“Jake and Vienna have split and appreciate respect for their privacy at this time,” their representative told OK! Magazine in the most ironic statement of the year. Really? They want privacy after meeting and getting engaged on national television? After Jake tweets ever last boring-ass detail about his life and the couple’s time together?
