Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi: We'd break up with them too [poll]

July 2, 2010 |  2:39 pm


The Fourth of July falls on Sunday, sure, but thanks to Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, we can all expect the fireworks to continue through Monday, when their joint interview with "The Bachelor" host Chris Harrison airs.

Frankly, if this chat really represents what these pretty people are like in a relationship, we'd break up with them too.

"You are the biggest fake liar I've ever met in my entire life," Vienna tells ex-love-of-her-life Jake during the post-game sit-down, which is embedded after the break.

Jake's smug little "Why are you raising your voice," the comment that sparked his ex-one-and-only's reaction, doesn't exactly fall in the "sexy" category either.

Now, this is that interview -- the one that had the Web hopping with rumors that Jake ...

... at one point looked as if he were going to haul off and whack Vienna.

"The exchange definitely got heated, it was contentious, but at no time and in no way was there any hint of him possibly physically harming her at all," Harrison said Friday on "Good Morning America."

"He didn't draw a fist, he didn't draw back a fist, he didn't act like he was going to hit her."

As to why she went to the tabloids with intimate details of their relationship, Girardi says in the interview: "I know Jake and I know as soon as we broke up he was gonna run to a media outlet and tell his side of the story so I wanted to make sure I had a voice also."

Harrison says he's not completely buying that explanation. Which means it's time a nonscientific online poll -- or two!
