The season finale of My Antonio aired last night with Brooke Barlow coming up victorious. The 30 year old nurse from Mississippi won the heart of Antonio Sabato Jr.
In a new interview with VH1, Brooke opens up about the current state of her relationship with Antonio. According to Brooke, she hasn’t spoken to Antonio in 2 – 3 months, and they are no longer together. She opens up about her thoughts on Yvonne, and why she wanted Antonio to sign that contract.
Excerpts from her interview below -
Well, thank you. That’s really, really nice to hear. No one’s been able to tell me that yet.
Where is your relationship with Antonio at this moment?
I’m just going to be honest with you: I am not in touch with Antonio. We haven’t spoken in probably two, three months.
The show was shot when?
In January. We couldn’t really court, because we weren’t allowed to be seen in public, so it’s very difficult to try to have a relationship behind closed doors. We had just met and we tried to pull it off. We saw each other for probably a couple of months after the show was filmed, and then we just decided it was best to see other people, and I haven’t heard from him since.
You did give it a try though?
Oh yeah. We put effort into it. I met his children. We would go hiking on the weekends in his back yard in the woods. We saw each other on the weekends, being very careful not to let anyone else see us. If he had any sort of job interview in L.A., he would stop by and visit me in my home. He’s adorable. We had a great time — as good of a time as you could have indoors with no outside contact. It was really nice getting to know him and his children.

Addictions are nothing new, and most people are aware of those involving alcohol, drugs, and eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia, but few know about and understand sex addiction. It afflicts roughly 3%-6% of the American population, and just like other addictions, its impact on personal lives can be devastating. The affliction can wreak havoc on the mental and physical health of those afflicted as well as destroy marriages, families, careers and even finances.

Tully Jensen‘s exit fromMy Antoniowas probably one of the most emotional ones ever seen on reality television. Most viewers found themselves rooting for Tully by the time she got to the final 3.
In a new interview with VH1, Tully discusses her emotional exit, getting over Antonio again, being betrayed by Christiand why she never wants to be like Antonio’s mother, Yvonne.
Excerpts from Tully’s interview is below -
How have you been emotionally since shooting the show?
After coming home, going through a three-month recuperation for my injury took my mind off things a little bit. But then watching the show brought up every single emotion that I had during the experience. The final show was like ripping a scab off the wound.
What did you think of Antonio’s reasoning for letting you go: you make him feel like a kid, but he’s no longer a kid?
I don’t think of him as a kid. I felt like he was running again. I felt like he was running away from his emotions.
What do you think about his final two of Brooke and Miranda?
I love Miranda. I like Brooke. But no. Neither one of them is right for Antonio. His lifestyle is different from what they think. They look at him like fans, or they wonder what he can to for them, in one girl’s case. Antonio isn’t a partier. His kids come first. He needs someone who will completely accept the fact that he’s got an entire family that’s involved in his life. He’s not going to be out dancing or clubbing or drinking. He’s very quiet, and if they don’t like home life and just want the glitz and glamor, they’re going to be disappointed.
Baker aka Jazmin Waterz is the latest Chance girl to be eliminated from VH1′s Real Chance of Love 2. In a new interview with VH1, Baker talks about her time on the show, her dislike for Blonde Baller, and why she’s proud to be a stripper.
Excerpts from her new interview are below -
How was your time on the show?
It was actually a learning experience. It was fun to be part of a social experiment, which is how I now see it. I learned a lot about myself and reality TV.
What did you learn about yourself?
Just watching myself on TV, I shoulda started punching girls in their face instead of playing the role of I-want-to-get-as-much-time-on-TV-as-possible. I didn’t want to go home for punching a girl in her mouth. They didn’t say any of that stuff to my face, so watching them makes me want to punch them in their face. So I’m just gonna start punching them.
How affected by this show were you emotionally? You cried when you were eliminated.
(Laughs) When I got eliminated, I was numb. I would have rather gotten kicked off at the beginning, when it was actually fun in the house. By that time, it was over it. I cried because I wasted my time. It just hit me in the head, like, I really liked him, I was there for him and he sent me home.
Even Blonde Baller said that you were there for Chance…
I give her props on that, but that’s it. I don’t want to talk about her.
Blonde Baller is speaking out about her time on Real Chance of Love 2. The latest contestant to be eliminated left a lot of unanswered questions when she left the show.
In this new interview with VH1, Blonde Baller aka Kip Force, talks about her feelings on being called a “snitch,” her new war of words with Chance, why she wants to be on Charm Schooland how she felt about being eliminated.
Excerpts from her interview her below -
Usually the first question I ask is, “How was your time on the show?” But via your Twitter, and elsewhere, I think I already know the answer.
My time was not positive at all.
What leaves you the most unsettled?
The editing. They made me look like I snitched on Flirty. They didn’t show the date before that, when she was dancing with Real and sitting with Real at dinner. Flirty was talking about me for 35 minutes about how she wanted to take a Real chain. She told me she liked Chance as a friend. I told her to use her next date to get to know Real, that way if she got kicked off, she got kicked off trying for the guy she was originally there for.
We did see her specifically say that she wasn’t going to take a Real chain, though.
She said that she wanted to get to know him, but she didn’t want to take his chain and be a flip-flopper. That’s when I said, “Well, Mamacita did it.” And she said, “Oh!” After that, in the room, I told her, “Flirty, don’t back out,” she said she wouldn’t, that she was going to get to know Real. Then the next day on the bus, she said, “Oh, I like Chance again!” Whatever, dude. They just don’t show a lot of stuff, like Hot Wings’ dude calling and saying, “Tell her that her car payment is paid.” They brought that up in court and she said, “Well, it’s still in his name. We were together two years. We’re still best friends.” She didn’t pack up one time, she packed up three times.
What about the snitching issue?
We’re taped 24/7. How am I snitching on you when you told national television your business? The only reason I know your business is because you were open with it and you were open with it in front of a camera.
The couple, who have yet to give any interviews since the finale of their hit dating show, are still going strong. The above photo was posted to Tali’s facebook fan page by Tali herself on September 21st, a week after the finale aired on FOX.
Tali has also changed her myspace status from single to engaged. And her twitter page showed her as visiting Luke and his family last week.
Nice to see a reality show couple still going strong. Good luck to the happy couple.
