Jake Pavelka: "Why I Broke Up with Vienna Girardi by Phone"

'Huawei': A foreshadowing name?

Chinesepod's Carlie discusses the meaning of the name 'Huawei' in light of the recent national security concerns of the Whitehouse

According to sources, the long-running reality show The Bachelor is not very good at fulfilling its intended goals. It is no secret that The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi have decided to call it quits, and now Pavelka’s former Dancing With the Stars dancemate, Edyta Sliwinksa, has something to say about the breakup. The 29-year-old tells People magazine that she believes the breakup is understandable because the two were being closely examined by all of Hollywood and millions of viewers. She goes on to say, without hesitation, “I mean, there’s no foundation to this relationship. They met on a reality TV show.” According to Sliwinksa, the audience shouldn’t believe what they see on reality shows such as The Bachelor, and therefore, the couple most probably endured struggles in their relationship off camera. The two split-up after Pavelka claimed the long distance strained the couple’s relationship. Source:
