'Bachelor' Jake Pavelka, fiancee Vienna Girardi break up

June 22, 2010 |  6:01 pm


“I would never ask for a woman’s hand in marriage unless I was 100% sure,” Jake Pavelka said before proposing to Vienna Girardi on the season finale of "The Bachelor" in March. 

But it seems now that his certainty came with an expiration date, as a rep for the couple confirmed Tuesday that the two are in fact going their separate ways.

According to TMZ, the "separate" part started Saturday with Girardi moving out of Pavelka's house. 

Though the Internet is swirling with rumors -- of cheating, presumed-but-not-real cheating, hey-you-love-fame-so-much-you-might-as-well-be cheating -- a saddened Pavelka is saying only that "Sometimes love just isn't enough in a relationship."

That wisdom was imparted, incidentally, to a TMZ cameraman.

Sigh -- we can't do that, so we'll just say it's a picture of "The Bachelor" couple in happier times. Times like, say, April 21 of this year. Credit: Matt Sayles / Associated Press.

Seems there's always a famous couple coming together or falling apart -- and sometimes it even involves a reality TV personalities.
