It looks like Scott Disick, Kourtney Kardashian’s on-again off-again boyfriend, has finally cleaned up his act. Disick, who has a 1-year-old son with Kardashian, has had problems with addiction in the past.  But Disick insists that now he’s committed to staying sober for his family.  He told People, “There’s times that it’s difficult but, you know, the good outweighs the bad…  It’s nice having a healthier lifestyle than I used to have.” Disick also said that being sober has made him a better person. “You know, I just realized there’s bigger things in the world than just being a selfish, self-centered, pr—k.”

If you want to know the key ingredient to winning (no Sheen pun intended), look no further than last summer’s Bachelor Pad winners: Natalie Getz and David Good.

Even though these two former contestants didn’t strike a love match on their respective Bachelor-franchise seasons, this dynamic duo made their mark as the first couple to win the ABC spin-off reality show, Bachelor Pad, where 19 past contestants competed for a grand prize of $250,000.

Throughout the show’s run, this couple focused on making their way to the finish line.  If there’s anything we can learn from watching Getz and Good, it’s that three important traits are needed to keep any relationship moving forward: loyalty, trust and friendship, which they exemplified.  While most romantic couples aren’t competing for anything but each other’s hearts, these elements can have you and your partner come out winning too – whether it’s for love, marriage or happiness.

Cupid had the opportunity to speak with Natalie and David about love, dating and how their lives have changed since Bachelor Pad ended.  Read on to see what they had to say:

Brad Womack is no rookie when it comes to proposing. This season’s eligible bachelor has, according to ex-girlfriend Laurel Kagay in an UsMagazine.com article, proposed to her countless times. Kagay said the most recent proposal was just weeks before he left to film this season’s show.  “Even when we weren’t together, he would say how much he loved me and was going to marry me,” she said.   While filming, Kagay said Womack would send her emails. “I’m sure the girl he picked would want to know that he was proposing to another woman right before he started taping the show,” she said. “I would want to know.”

Although Gabriel Aubry and Kim Kardashian’s recent romance fizzled soon after it began, People reports that Halle Berry was not happy to see her ex out with a reality TV star. Aubry, 35, and Kardashian, 30, took in a Lakers game and a movie in late November before calling it quits. Halle Berry, 44, who split with the French Canadian model last year, was angry about the relationship because of her daughter, according to a source close to the actress. “Halle was very upset… She just didn’t want Nahla exposed to the cameras that are undoubtedly around a reality star.” But Aubry had no intention of bringing someone new into his daughter’s life right away. “Gabriel wanted to make sure he dated someone for six months before he introduced them to his daughter,” says the source.

As we mentioned earlier today, we got a chance to watch last night’s episode of ABC’s The Bachelor with Bachelor Pad winner and author of The Man Code, David L. Good.  The event was at the Village Pourhouse in downtown New York City, and many ladies (and a few gents) came out to talk to David, take pictures, check out his book and watch the fifth episode with him.  I have to admit, it was both cool and weird to watch the show with a former contestant – as you guys remember, David was on season 5 of The Bachelorette with Jillian Harris.  Hearing David’s take definitely added a unique perspective.  Read on for our recap of last night’s episode and his advice for season 15 contestant Brad Womack:

How much would you sacrifice if your partner got ill?  The millions of people watching American Idol Wednesday night had to consider that question after watching Chris Medina’s touching story.  People reports that when 26-year-old Medina auditioned for the judges in Milwaukee, he told the story of how he and the love of his life, Juliana, dated for six years and got engaged.  Then two months before the wedding, everything changed when Juliana got in an accident that left her with a traumatic brain injury.  “I was about to make vows just two months from the accident — through thick and thin, ’til death do us part, for better or worse,” he said.  “What kind of guy would I be if I walked out when she needed me the most?”

Should you sacrifice aspects of your life for your partner’s illness?

After they were spotted sitting together courtside at a Knicks-Spurs game, rumors about actress Chloe Sevigny and Jersey Shore’s Paul “DJ Pauly D” DelVecchio were an item.  When asked by Interview magazine about the possibility of dating Pauly D, the Big Love star called the idea “hilarious,” reports People.  Sevigny added, “That would be the weirdest couple in the world.  It would be like the apocalypse.  We represent extremes, in opposite directions. So for us two to come together, it would be a very strange meeting of the minds or colliding of two worlds.”

Former Girl Next Door Bridget Marquardt has a new reality television show in the works.  What’s her only concern?  Can she and boyfriend Nicolas Carpenter keep their relationship intact?  She told RadarOnline, “It’s kind of fun to be able to share it with my boyfriend, but at the same time I have concerns with that as well…they always say that all these reality show couples end up breaking up and [have] lots of problems and stuff so I’m definitely listening to that and taking that into consideration.  Maybe a formatted show is a better way to go.”  Bridget Marquardt is excited about the show and is also thrilled with her post-playboy life.  She and Nicolas Carpenter, a director, hope to  “…do some more horror movies together where I’m producing and he’s directing and his brother is actually a writer so we kind of have a team here!”

In spite of leaving her castmates at Jersey Shore before the end of the season for the second time, Angelina’s reality TV career is far from over.  According to RadarOnline, just in time for Halloween, the Jersey girl appeared on IFC’s 5-part horror satire series, Dead Set.  It seems that Angelina may be trading in her tan juice head guidos for a much paler partner.  As part of IFC’s spoof, Angelina shocked the GTL off of her Jersey Shore cast mates by dating the undead.  Anyone who thinks their last blind date was bad can’t top Angelina’s date with a zombie.  Her disgust can be seen as she speaks in candid detail about why this zombie isn’t right for her.  Perhaps, next time she will look for guys on the boardwalk instead of at the graveyard.

No matter what your take is on TLC’s reality series Sister Wives, there is no doubt that Utah’s most famous polygamist family has caught America’s full attention.  Unfortunately, according to RadarOnline, Kody Brown and his multiple wives have also caught the attention of the feds.  Though bigamy is a third-degree felony in Utah, it’s rarely investigated.  But due to all of the publicity surrounding the show, a full-out police investigation on the Browns is underway.  In response to potential legal action, the Brown family issued the following statement: “We are disappointed in the announcement of an investigation, but when we decided to do this show, we knew there would be risks.  But for the sake of our family, and most importantly, our kids, we felt it was a risk worth taking.”
