Bad news, Bachelor Nation! Gia Allemand, who appeared on Bachelor and Bachelor Pad, has been hospitalized in New Orleans. Gia's publicist shared, she is listed in critical condition following a "serious medical event, the details of which are currently not known." A close friend tweeted:
"Ms. Allemand's mother is with her, along with her long-term boyfriend, NBA basketball player Ryan Anderson of the New Orleans Pelicans," added Gia's publicist. "On behalf of the family, we kindly ask for privacy at this time."
On Monday, August 8, it’s time to hit the hot tubs! ABC is premiering the second season of the Bachelor Pad, a wonderful train wreck where the rejects (and one winner!) from seasons past move into a house together and compete with one another for a chance to win $250,000.
The opening episode apparently has so much drama and so little clothing, it needs three hours to do the show justice. Why, you may ask? Well, this time around former Bachelor, the creepy plastic Jake Pavelka (who LOVES a reality show), must face former fiance Vienna Girardi.
You may recall the couple’s break-up was less than amicable. Fear not though. Vienna has a new man, Kasey Kahl, who will surely guard and protect her heart. Holly Durst and break-dancing Michael Stagliano are also fresh from a broken engagement. Other memorable house mates include sh*t stirrer Michelle Money and Bachelor Pad alum Gia Allemand.

In today’s shocking news, former Bachelor winner Shayne Lamas is still going strong with husband of a year Nik Richie. If you recall, the two tied the knot last year in April after only knowing each other for a few hours.
Not as shocking is the news that Shayne, winner of the Bachelor Season 12, is now pregnant! “The Lamas-Richie family is happy, healthy and definitely pregnant,” tweeted Shayne, 25, early Wednesday.
As for Nik, founder of the popular site thedirty.com, he tells Radar Online he is “really excited.” Nik adds, “I like her boobs more right now.”
Nik also makes it clear he would rather have a boy. “If I have a girl I’ll probably never talk to the kid, probably file for divorce,” he joked. “She’ll have an eating disorder by age two.” Shayne is reportedly due on 11-11-11. New bikini photos of Shayne showing off her baby bump below!
In other Bachelor alum news, the Rumorfix is reporting that Jake Pavelkais now dating Gia Allemand, one of the ladies he eliminated on his season.
The site reports Jake went surfing with Gia Sunday in Manhattan Beach, California with the duo also having a dinner date at popular restaurant Katsuya the same weekend. “I officially am obsessed with surfing….” tweeted Gia on Sunday night. “Awesome day of surfing in Manhattan Beach!” tweeted Jake the same night.
Jake rejected Gia during his season of the Bachelor, after she made it to his top three, in favor of Vienna Girardi whom he had a nasty public break up with last year. As we reported weeks ago, Jake is currently in Los Angeles shooting a new reality show for VH1 with Heidi Montagand Danielle Staub.

According to a new report by AM NewYork, Vienna, 23, former fiance of Jake Pavelka, was overheard “plugging” herself to be the next Bachelorette over dinner at Primo KO in New York City.
She was apparently in NYCto take part in a Bachelor reunion that was also attended by show alums Molly Malaney Mesnick, David Good, Rozlyn Papa, and Gia Allemand. No word on whether or not ABC is even considering having Vienna return as the Bachelorette though it might not be far fetched as Brad’s return is currently proving to be a success for the network. Monday’s episode of the Bachelor was the highest rated this season, bringing in 9.4 million viewers.
In other Vienna news, UsWeekly is also reporting she and former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand got into a recent twitter war. It gets even better as it was over former Bachelorette contestant Wes Hayden, also Gia’s ex-boyfriend.
“I guess I can hope to be the Bachelorette now that Wes is dating Vienna!” Gia, 26, tweeted late Tuesday. Vienna didn’t take too well to Gia’s tweet as she denied dating Wes, despite claims they hooked up at a recent Bachelor reunion in Texas.
“It’s sad that people have to make up lies (Gia) that I’m dating someone so they can get sympathy and attempt to become the Bachelorette,” Vienna sniped back on twitter.
“[You are] a bad friend [and] everyone saw you guys at the reunion and in Texas. And [you] even approached me — hope they got it on camera. We will see soon on the Women Tell All [special],” Gia snapped back. “The world already knows [your] true colors.”
Yikes. As for what happened between Gia and Wes, Gia said the following to Realitysteve.com about his rumored hook up with Vienna, “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.” Safe to assume these are not friendly exes.

Has the Bachelor Padcreated yet another real like couple? That answer is yes!
Following their on screen flirting, it seems Gia Allemandand ABC resident bad boy Wes Hayden are now officially a couple.
The duo, pictured above on Friday at Melanie Segal’s MTV VMA Retreat in Beverly Hills, California, expressed their fondness for one another on the show with Wes even proclaiming his love for Gia. However, things could not go any further as Gia had a boyfriend at the time.
The two then reunited during the Wednesday taping of the show’s finale and reunion. With Gia now being single, it seems they are giving things a go. According to RadarOnline, Gia and Wes “were acting like a couple,” Friday night at the Voyeur nightclub.
“They were whispering in each others ears and smiling a lot,” says a source. “At one point, Gia grabbed Wes’ arm and pulled him close for a kiss. They were holding hands for most of the night and disappeared together at about 1:30 am.”
The finale of the Bachelor Pad airs tonight, and host Chris Harrison tells Zap2it that fans will be in for a big surprise. Coming up in tonight’s finale, Dancing With The Stars pro dancer Edyta Sliwinska makes a cameo appearance when she teaches Jesse Kovacs how to dance, much to the dismay of Jesse’s crazy pants girlfriend Elizabeth Kitt. Jesse and Elizabeth are still dating by the way.
The final six includes Tenley & Kyptin, Natalie & Dave, and Elizabeth & Jesse. The finale episode airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.
In a new interview with UsWeekly, the weatherman had some choice words for crazy pants Elizabeth Kitt, who spit on her hands, rinsed them off in the pool and sniped, “I just realized how gross this is” after kissing Jonathan in the kissing competition on Monday night’s episode.
“I didn’t consider her a contestant,” said the Weatherman, 30, in a post-show interview. “I consider contestants to be of a human form, not of a demonic form. Everybody else was cool. If I don’t have respect for somebody, they can say whatever they want about me and it doesn’t phase me.”
As for why he was voted off the show, the Weatherman is still not sure, adding that “there were definitely girls that would have benefited and given themselves more longevity in the game by keeping me around.”
In other news, after sharing what seemed like a romantic connection with Wes Hayden on the Bachelor Pad, Gia Allemand is now opening up about the ABC resident bad boy.
Gia, 26, tells UsWeekly she feels she got sent home because she backed out of the very gross kissing contest. Gia felt uncomfortable with the competition because she had a boyfriend, Hockey player Chris Campoli, back home.
“I took away a shot at winning the rose — that was huge,” said Gia. “But I had to do what was right for my boyfriend back home and what was right in my mind. Kissing people down the line was not right for me to do.”
And what about her close relationship with Wes on the show? “I feel bad that I got close to another guy on the show — even though I didn’t cheat,” said Gia. “My boyfriend handled everything with such class.”
So is she still with her boyfriend? Gia declined to answer stating the answer to that question will come out after the finale. However RadarOnline reported weeks ago that Gia and Chris are no longer together. According to Radar, the two split up shortly after Gia came back from doing the show.
So is a single Gia dating Wes? Unlikely as she tells UsWeekly she has not seen Wes, 33, since she got sent home. “We’re going to see each other at the finale,” she said. “That’s a little nerve-wracking.”
In a new interview with PEOPLE, Juan discusses why he went on the show, what really happened between him and Nikki, while he also defends crazy pants Michelle.
Excerpts from Juan’s interview below -
The reason you were eliminated is because of your history with Nikki. Viewers only got part of the story and it made you seem like a jerk. What’s your side?
Nikki tends to embellish and exaggerate and she uses the terms relationship and dating differently than I do … We had been corresponding online and she seemed like a sweet girl. She invited me to Chicago. I had never been and was eager to visit. We had a wonderful weekend together. She was a wonderful host. Everything went as normally and naturally as you can imagine and then I came back to LA, my life and other people I was dating. We kept in touch but at no time did we ever talk about pursuing it. I took it for what it was and she obviously took it for something more. The next time I saw her was six weeks later on the reunion cruise. Before we boarded, I said I wasn’t interested in continuing our relationship and that it would be best to be friends. She didn’t take that very well and that’s where the animosity started.
Were you surprised at how quickly Natalie and Jesse hooked up?
Yeah. They had an instant connection. They are each other’s type in every way. I don’t know if it will last. They live in different states so that makes things difficult.
Did Michelle and Craig hook up on the first night?
That never happened. Tenley was dreaming or it was Natalie and Jesse who had already been making out and slept next to her. Craig and Michelle were on the other side of the room and I know for a fact they didn’t do anything inappropriate. If it was Tenley’s strategy to start a rumor about someone already on thin ice to rally the troop against her, it was well-played.
As you all slept in one room, which woman looked best waking up? Gia always looked great. Some girls walked in to the house all dolled up and Gia came in with no makeup, hair down and a T-shirt and could not have looked more beautiful.
A new episode of the Bachelor Pad is also coming on tonight. Things quickly heat up when Wes Hayden tells Gia he loves her. “I’m crazy about you … I wish that circumstances were different … but I’ve got this infatuation that you’re kinda my girl … I love you,” says Wes to Gia.
On the other side of the house, it seems Jesse is having second thoughts about Natalie upon hearing she’s been around the block with many other past Bachelor(ette) guys.
