Vienna Girardi, Jake Pavelka trade insults on 'The Bachelorette' Vienna Girardi and ex-fiance Jake Pavelka, both of last season's The Bachelor, thanked fans for their support after an emotional confrontation on The Bachelorette on Monday night, following a much-publicized breakup.

"The truth will always prevail," Girardi recently Tweeted following a Fourth of July weekend in Las Vegas. "I'm so glad people see what I have been going through. Love you all."

Pavelka echoed similar comments, Tweeting: "Thanks everybody! I really appreciate the ongoing support."

Girardi, 23, recently partied at Vegas hot spot Tao Beach and sat in a booth near Glee star Mark Salling, who also Tweeted about his "bro weekend". She is set to host Hypnotiq's "Single and Fabulous" bash at the venue on July 17, The Los Angeles Times said.

During her pre-taped confrontation with Pavelka, 32, Girardi broke down crying after addressing reports he had not been intimate with her in months prior to their breakup.

"I thought it was because you wanted to wait until marriage or because you were fasting," Girardi said. "I just want to know which excuse it is because you've given me five."

"To me, there's more in a relationship than sex and intimacy," Pavelka said. "She breaks me down, she undermines me, she's mean, she's always right, I never do anything right. This is it, right here."

Girardi also criticized Pavelka's move to "run to a media outlet and tell his side of the story" following their split, calling him a "famewhore".

Pavelka, who competed on Dancing With the Stars and even brought Girardi for a guest dance on its finale in May, recently filmed a guest spot on the Lifetime series Drop Dead Diva.

The Bachelorette host Chris Harrison, who interviewed the former couple, had told Good Morning Americas Cameron Mathison: "When I went into this interview I did not think it would get as angry and contentious as it did."

When asked if the newly single Vienna Girardi will be the next Bachelorette, Harrison said, "Anything can happen, but no."
