The latest failed "Bachelor" couple, Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, returned to the show that made them (in)famous last night, and if you thought cooler heads prevailed after a public break-up, think again. Here's a play-by-play of all the camera-ready drama:
Host Chris Harrison asked Jake what went wrong, mentioning that he had dinner with the couple a few weeks ago. Jake says he was "out of town" when everything happened, but admitted that things with Vienna had been going downhill for some time.
Chris then brings out Vienna, who sits next to Jake. After talking again about that dinner, Chris asks Vienna what went wrong.
Vienna says the relationship started changing a month after they started dating. Once she said that, the sparring went to a level not seen since last weekend's Brock Lesnar-Shane Carwin fight.
Vienna says there was no emotion with Jake, who accused her of selling him out to a tabloid. Jake accused Vienna of seeing other men, while Vienna alleged that Jake made disparaging remarks about her dog. Surprisingly, neither one blamed the other for the Gulf oil disaster.
Vienna calls Jake a "fake liar" and requests that he take a "poly-o-graph" test, which must be a machine made out of string cheese. Chris tries to restore order by going to commercial.
The bell rings for round two, with Chris asking why the couple didn't amicably split earlier. Vienna says she tried to do so twice, but Jake says the attempts were nothing more than Vienna sulking and wanting attention. Vienna then accused Jake of not acknowledging her during his time on "Dancing with the Stars," while Jake said Vienna only danced on the show's finale so she could get camera time.
Asked about the future, Vienna said that she's "doing marketing" in Los Angeles, despite not being a fan of the city.
The two then debate over who broke up with whom, with Vienna saying she has a witness to her breaking up with Jake, but declined to elaborate. Jake then expresses displeasure with Vienna constantly interrupting him - even Chris asks Vienna to let Jake speak, but Vienna appears to ignore the request.
Vienna says Jake will only find love with a woman who wants to be controlled, while Jake says he doesn't need a selfish woman. The two then debate about Vienna's dog again, which Chris mercifully asks to end.
Chris asks Vienna if there's anything she should apologize to Jake for. Vienna apologizes for "going about it the way she did", but that Jake would have done the same thing. Jake tries to respond, but Vienna interrupts. Jake sternly tells her to stifle it, which causes Vienna to leave the stage in tears.
Jake explains to Chris that what just happened was an example of one of their arguments, adding Vienna was the first relationship where he had to raise his voice. Jake said he felt bad about it, but that something was wrong with the relationship.
What did you think of last night's reunion? Do you think it's real?
