The Bachelor star Jake Pavelka, 33, is a bachelor no more.  Pavelka is now a dating graduate of the University of Central Florida and a contestant on CMT’s Sweet Home Alabama, Ashley Ann Vickers. The relationship is fairly new, as they met on the set of the CW show H8r and just this past Saturday hit the beach for some couple-time. According to UsMagazine.com, Vickers’ website says she is a Southern born lady who competed in the Miss USA pageant and modeled for Maxim. But her true passion lies in motivation, as she “hopes to become a full time motivational speaker for college kids” in the future. If her website is anything to go by, Vickers seems like a keeper.

Millionaire Matchmaker: Patti Stanger Helps Millionaires Find Personality Before Seeking Love

Posted In: Reality TV, The Millionaire Matchmaker

BRAVO’s The Millionaire Matchmaker Patti meets up with drag queen Frank (who sometimes impersonates Patti herself!) and gives him tips to be himself while dating, instead of the larger than life personality he sometimes embodies.  As a “celebrity”, Frank and Patti discuss the good and the bad about dating when you’re well known.  Going from too much personality to zero personality, Patti’s other client this week, Jason, is way too uptight and needs to loosen up to find a match.  Keltie, a body movement coach meets with Jason to help him relax.  Will he be able to take what he learns and apply it to dating, or will he leave all his new moves at the dance studio? Find out this Tuesday 11/8 @ 9/8c on BRAVO’s The Millionaire Matchmaker

Kasey and Vienna did quite well in the final challenge, but ultimately didn’t get a chance to compete for the final prize. What are your closing thoughts on how they chose to play the game? Do you think they will remain together long-term?

He said: I think they played the game great! People can dislike them as a couple but they still controlled the whole show till the end. As far as a couple, I wish them the best but I don’t see it working out from what we got to see of them on TV.

Love & Laughs: Comedian Eric Patrick Shares His Relationship Advice

Cupid's Pulse Article: Love & Laughs: Comedian Eric Patrick Shares His Relationship Advice
Eric Patrick

Comedians are usually social anomalies, and that’s why they’re so respected.  For anyone to stand in front of a gigantic crowd of people, living and dying purely on the words they say while at the same time trying to make a personal connection–takes a special type of person.

Eric Patrick is one of the hottest young comedians on the scene today–in more ways than one.   His time on The Real World: New Orleans may have introduced him to a wider audience, but his good looks, charm, and captivating comedic style have kept his audience growing, from the NYC scene, all the way to far-off Johannesburg and London.  Described by MTV.com as a “handsome ladies man,” and by Entertainment Weekly as “energetic and engaging,” Eric Patrick knows how to create and cultivate a relationship, as well as a crowd. Here are a few tips to help daters of either sex lighten up, straight from Patrick’s experience:

Don’t take rejection personally–it’s a fact of life. “A woman can usually tell within the first 10-15 minutes whether she likes a guy or not,” says Patrick.  “As you get older, you learn not to get hung up on it.  If a girl’s not into me, I just move on, because there are other ones out there.”

Things got pretty crazy in the latest episode of Bachelor Pad 2.  We saw Melissa flip out, Erica make the moves on Jake and a showdown between Kasey and Jake for the final rose.  After the episode, we were left shaking our heads that Mr. Pavelka was actually eliminated, and were anxious to get thoughts about the dramatic episode from David Good and Natalie Getz, winners of Bachelor Pad 1.

Were you surprised the men did better at the synchronized swimming challenge?  What factors were most important to you as you were judging the performances?

He Said: I was a little surprised until after and sat down and thought about it.  Guys in the house on all the shows get along better than the girls do.  The producers always talked to me about the Bachelor and Bachelorette — the guys are typically easy going, whereas the girls tend to be catty and backstabbing to each other.  It’s the same reason most of my guy friends have like 15 good friends and the girls I know have like three or four, at most. This makes it easier for the guys to work together as a team, and it showed.

Reality star exes Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi may have been previously engaged after the 14th season of the Bachelor, but it turns out the two are definitely at odds when it comes to working together on the new season of Bachelor Pad 2. A preview shows an almost defeated Jake Pavelka asking to make an alliance with Girardi as a last resort to remain in the competition, according to UsMagazine.com. Girardi doesn’t seem very keen on the idea, though, since she is still hurt and is finally happy and moving on with her new beau Kasey Kahl. The pair are rumored to be looking for an apartment in Los Angeles together.
