Vienna denies cheating, Jake is silent

Vienna Girardi took to Twitter to defend herself against TMZ’s allegations that she was cheating with Greek actor Gregory Michael, prompting her break-up with Jake Pavelka.

“The accusations of me cheating are completely fabricated. 100% False,” she wrote. TMZ then edited its story–horrifically written, as always–to add that “whether she cheated or not, Jake thought she did.”

Meanwhile, Jake hasn’t tweeted at all, which makes him marginally more interesting than when he actually is writing on Twitter.
