Is This Really the New Rumored Couple in “Bachelor/ette” Land?

January 25th, 2011 | 19 Comments | Posted in The Bachelor 15 - Brad

The votes are in. You’ve all spoke your mind. The name appearing most in all your guesses is the Weatherman. Gee, shocker. I know you find it funny that he could possibly be dating anyone of the opposite sex, but no, he’s not one of the people involved. Before I get to it, let me list all the guesses I got within the last 6 hours.

Crazy Michelle and the “Phantom” from Ali’s season, Chris Nordhorn (Actually a good guess considering how random that would be)
Craig R from Ali’s season and Gia (Hey, if that were true, that’d mean I’d have a shot with Gia considering Craig R and I supposedly are twins)
Chris Lambton and Peyton (I sh** you not. Three people guessed this. Even after I spent TWO paragraphs on the very first page of today’s post telling everyone they’ve been dating since September. And you wonder why I enjoy banging my head against a wall)
Jillian and Weatherman (Their babies would end up being dwarfs)
Ashleigh Hunt and Kasey Kahl (You people must be reading their tweets to each other. Nope, not them. Ashleigh is just one of the 1 million women Kasey flirts with on Twitter)
Ed and Natalie (Hmmm, interesting. Both from Chicago, both like getting sloppy with the opposite sex. I can see it. But no, not them. And they wouldn’t be surprising in the least bit if it ever happened)
Crazy Michelle and Weatherman (When these people both suggested Crazy Michelle, I still have no idea which one they’re referring to. This season’s Michelle or Jake’s Michelle)
Rozlyn and the Weatherman (No. Next.)
Vienna and the Weatherman (Not a bad guess, but no)
Rozlyn and Dave Good (And this would be surprising how?)
Gia and the Weatherman (God help us all)
Jeremy Anderson and Ashleigh Hunt (Ha ha. Now that’s funny)
Kirk and Jessie Sulidis (Been there, done that)
Chris Harrison and Ryan Callahan’s ex-wife (By far, the funniest guess of the day. Kudos to whoever sent that one in)
Jesse Kovacs and anything with a pulse (My second favorite guess of the day, but no. That wouldn’t be the least bit surprising)
Jesse Csincsak and Vienna (Uhhh, Jesse is engaged. Or married. I don’t know. I don’t read Radar Online enough to keep up with what’s going on in his life)

All good guesses (well, sort of), but no. The rumored lastest fling is Wes and Vienna. They were in Ft. Worth together this past Friday night at bar called Billy Bob’s, then were in Austin the next night at the Iron Cactus. Being friends with Wes, I obviously went straight to the source and asked him if anything was going on, because when I was given this information this afternoon, I was told they were seeing each other now. I couldn’t possibly run with something like that without asking Wes himself. So I did and here’s what he said:

“Nah, there’s nothing going on there. Vienna and I are just friends. We hung this weekend, but there was a bunch of people with us. I just met her on Friday night for the first time.”

I emailed Vienna to ask her what she thought of the news that she was now being linked to Wes. Her response:

“No comment.”

I figured I’d just leave it at that and someone would end up running with the story as fact and this “couple” will gain a pair of legs before you know it. But just minutes ago, I received a text from Gia, who wanted to throw her two cents in. I gave her time to re-think it and make sure this is what she wanted to say and she said to print exactly what she wrote. Ok, here it goes. From Gia at 7:51 PM CST:

“Wes is a snake who only cares about himself and uses people to try to get another 15 minutes of fame, so this doesn’t shock me about him at all.”

Oh boy. Game on. I’ll see you guys Friday if I haven’t gotten caught in the crossfire.

  1. Wow. I’m speculating, of course, but by Vienna’s “no comment” response, I’d say that at least SOMETHING happened this weekend between Wes and Vienna. But, it’s obvious by Wes’ comment that they shouldn’t be considered a couple. So, I’d say this means they are not a couple, but maybe a hook-up between two people whom no one would expect would be matched even for a fling. Just my two cents. Oh, and I love Gia’s input. I’m guessing she’s basically saying that she wouldn’t be surprised if Wes and Vienna hung out, and that Wes would deny anything more for his own sake. Run, Vienna, Run!

    Oh, and by the way, my husband and I were talking last night during that boring Bachelor episode (sorry, but this season is boring- probably b/c most of the girls actually seem like normal, nice girls- disregarding Michelle, of course) that this show would be a lot more interesting if they had someone like Wes in it. During Brad and Chantal’s date, my husband made the comment that we just need Wes to walk into the cabana with his guitar and start singing, “They say loooove, don’t come eeeeaaasyyyy…”. Wes may not be a guy for women to look to date (per Gia’s comment), but he does seem like a fun guy to at least e friends with and hang out with.

  2. I really wish I’d sent my guess in because that is exactly what it was. Yeah I know, impossible to prove but that was the couple that came to mind when you described them as “weird ass”.

  3. Ooooooohhhhhh Gia. Them’s some fighting words from the drunken slurring girl who pronounced him “Shakespeare but like younger and cuter”…

  4. Hey, I guessed Wes and Vienna as a comment on the previous post. So it IS true that RS does not read these comments. Guess I’ll have to email him (I’m not on Twitter).

  5. that silly stupid whore vienna is barhopping in texas with WES? oh too funny. yeah and gia was so in love with wes just a few months ago. i tell you these jerks are all ridiculous.

  6. Why, if this rumour is true, would it be a surprise to anyone? Both Wes & Vienna are fame-whores, so it makes perfect sense. One feeds off the other..a perfect match made in heaven, lol!

  7. If Wes is smart, he wore a lot of protection. The crud he could catch from Vienna can make a pecker fall off.

    Hey, that gives me an idea. Maybe Vienna should bottle her toxic juices and sell it as a drain cleaner.

    I’ll only want 20% cut for coming up with the idea.

  8. How random is it that I was at Billy Bob’s Friday night as well to see Cody Canada and his new band – The Departed. I never saw Wes or Vienna; then again, that place is huge and I wasn’t looking for them! Small world.

  9. I don’t find the rutting of Vienna and Wes odd at all. Besides a distain for Jake the Tool, they both appear to be full of fleas. lots in common.

  10. Not related to this post, but check out the following article:

    http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2011/01/did-bachelor-brad-womack-leave-bettina-bell-to-be-on-the-show-again.html

    The gist of it: Bettina claims Brad pursued her after his first go as the Bachelor, and left her to go back on it this time. I actually had seen some speculation about him truly wanting Bettina the first time but that her family wasn’t a fan of him or something, and that once she was gone, that was the reason why he didn’t pick DeAnna or Jenni. RS if you can share anything you know about how much (or little) truth there is to all this on Friday, please do.

  11. They are totally dating! Oh I wish I would have gotten a pic before my friend ran up to them! We hung out for probably 20 minutes at Billy Bobs in Fort Worth and they respectfully asked we not take a picture of them together but we could take pictures with them separately which we did of course! When we asked why, Vienna said it was because in “tv world” Wes is supposed to be with Gia but in reality, her and Gia are best friends and Wes was never with her! She then went on to gush about what gentleman Wes is and how amazing their relationship has been! Wes stood by and confirmed! They left shortly after since people began to recognize them! I do have to say, their “characters” on television are just that! They are 2 most down to earth and nicest people! They could have easily refused pictures or walked away after taking the pictures but instead, we hung for a bit and had a few drinks with each other!

  12. Hey I got an idea for a drinking game. Every time Steve mentions he’s friends with a contestant, take a shot.

    Oh wait, don’t. I’d hate for anyone to get alcohol poisoning.

  13. Straight from Chris Harrison’s mouth..

    “Our show, as much as it is about finding love, it’s about escapism. It’s the modern day soap opera … People watch that show for that escapism, but they also know it’s real, which is something soap operas can’t deliver. Ali and Roberto live on, Trista and Ryan live on after the show is over.”

    Hahaha. Really Chris? Please list how many Bachelor/ette couples have made it work. Oh..a few. Hm..that’s what I call success!

  14. aspring44 — as much as I like to snark on ABC (and Harrison in particular) you have to admit that most relationships formed in ANY venue don’t work out. I’d say that the odds of a dating relationship progressing to marriage are pretty slim, no matter how you met. The fact that they have 3 solid couples (two of whom are married and one with a baby) is a solid success rate.

    Think about it. How many people does one usually have to date before they find their spouse? A lot. Your chances of making it are always slim, its just that couples formed on the Bachelor are in the limelight – and unfortunately that very limelight can eventually dampen the glow of a relationship.

  15. Steve- all the silly boob talk? Really? As if men actually read your blog! Do you think women want to read over and over again about Alli’s “funbags?!” you’re a smart man… Figure it out!
