Jillian and Ed Update

More details are starting to come out regarding the recent Bachelorette split.

While things are not as ugly as the Jake/Vienna Bachelor break up, the new details involve Ed Swiderski allegedly cheating on Jillian Harris.

RadarOnline reports friends of the couple believe Ed’s playboy ways is to blame for the split.   “We think Ed was doing shady stuff during their relationship,” an inside source told Radar in an exclusive interview. “Jillian knew but couldn’t put her finger on it.”

The friends also recall another incident about a month-and-a-half ago when the couple flew to Los Angeles from Chicago and Jillian stayed with girlfriends while Ed stayed with the guys.

The morning after the night out on the town, Ed’s pals had an early tee-time to play golf but when they went to pick up Ed, he couldn’t make it. “I believe he had a girl with him and had no way to get her out of the house,” revealed the inside source. “They all knew he was a player.”

A former Bachelor contestant also chimes in, “Jillian thought that she could change him.”

Radar is also reporting that Jillian will have to return her $60,000 Platinum Neil Lane engagement ring to ABC. Why? Well apparently to keep the ring, the engaged couple is required to stay together for 2 years.  They do not have to get married within that 2 year period, but they would need to remain a couple.  This might explain why Jillian was so hell bent on making things work with Ed despite the very public details of his two timing ways.

On the heels of the recent messy Bachelor breakup comes news that Jillian Harris and fiance Ed Swiderski have also split up.

UsWeekly is breaking the story in their latest issue. And former Bachelorette star Jillian is confirming the news to the mag, “I love him and I’m really sad, but I have to look out for me,” says Jillian, 29.

Ed, 30, also talks to the mag, “We’re both kind of resetting. Jillian isn’t happy and I’m definitely sad about the whole thing, but we’ve got to work through some things on our own if we decide to move forward.”

This news isn’t exactly a shocker as it was revealed last August that Ed had two girlfriends back home in Chicago during his time on the show. Even more damaging was news that Ed had sex with one of the said girlfriend just days after proposing to Jillian. There have also been rumblings that despite moving in with Jillian, Ed had yet to curb his cheating ways.

“There’s bumps on the road, and we don’t always deal with them properly,” said Jillian to UsWeekly in early June. “Our life is not always perfect.”

UsWeekly promises to reveal the actual reason for the split in their latest issue.

Jillian and Ed

Former Bachelorette star Jillian Harris and fiance Ed Swiderski made a special appearance on the Bachelor early on this season as the two were set to publicly announce their wedding date. Things however changed when the couple asked ABC to remove their wedding date announcement from the episode.

Their reason back then was that they wanted more privacy. However in a new interview with RadarOnline, it seems the couple have decided to slow things down a bit.

“Well, our wedding plans are coming along slow,” Jillian revealed. Ed quickly chimed in: “We want to do it right.” He added, “I would say the size is not that important as well we need a location. We need a venue that supports the dates that we want.”

In a different interview with Inspiredbythis.com, Jillian reveals their wedding will likely be taking place next year, and no longer Fall 2010 as they had previously planned. When asked if she had a wedding date, Jillian said “no, not yet!”  She added that they aren’t ready to commit to a date. “I’m pretty sure I know where I want to do it, what I want to wear, and who I want to come, but that’s really it.”

When asked about rumors she wanted Ed to propose to her again in private and away from the cameras by RadarOnline, she revealed, “I think that would be nice, but… I am not waiting to get married for that. But like, let’s just discuss it again non-televised…in private.”

Ed also joked about this Bachelor season, mainly Ali leaving early for work, something he did to Jillian last season. “People just think they can come and go every time they please,” he said about Ali “pulling a Swiderski.” Added Jillian: “She might come back. You’ll see if Ali loves Jake as much as Ed loves me.”

Every time I read something about this couple, the first thoughts to race through my head is “She’s still with him?” and “They’re still together?” If you’re wondering why those thoughts, it has to do with the very widely publicized cheating scandal that plagued Ed last year. You can read all about that here. With that being said, it’s good to see them taking things slow and more power to them.

The Bachelorette couple Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski continue to defy all odds, as the two have now began to plan their 2010 wedding.

The Bachelor host Chris Harrison, confirmed to RadarOnline that Jillian and Ed will definitely tie the knot and have finally set their wedding date. Apparently, the two were suppose to announce their wedding date on Monday night’s premier episode of the Bachelor, but they later had a change of heart after deciding they wanted some privacy for their wedding.

ABC had teased weeks before the premier that Jillian and Ed would make a special announcement on the show. An ABC spokesperson confirms to RealityTVWorld that the announcement was indeed going to be a wedding date. “They were worried about how the announcement would have affected their personal life, so they decided to pull it.”

It is a bit surprising to see these two going the distance considering the fact that two women came out publicly last year with evidence claiming Ed had cheated on Jillian with both of them. Lindsay Johnson and Bethany Steffen claimed that Ed slept with both of them during his relationship and engagement with Jillian.

Jillian has always stood by her man by dismissing the claims of the other women. “It was strange the way they were attacked and kind of still are, but they are kind of like what the hell are you going to do? They are living their lives and they are doing good,” Harrison said of the couple.

The couple told GMA a few months ago that they expected to get married in Canada.

Bachelorette couple, Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, are still going strong based on their latest interview with PEOPLE magazine.

The couple, currently living together in Ed’s one bedroom Chicago condo, both admit it took a lot of effort to get to this next step in their relationship.  Who can forget two of Ed’s former girlfriends coming forward last August to reveal that Ed had continued relationships with both of them during his time on The Bachelorette, and even after he became engaged to Jillian.

Ed is willing to admit some wrongdoing on his part but still claims those very believable reports of his cheating were exaggerated. “I was a bachelor in every sense of the word,” Ed admits. “I am not an angel, but things were exaggerated.”

Jillian continues to maintain Ed did nothing wrong — “It would be more naïve of me to trust [these women] than to trust the person I’m going to bed with every single night and have spoken to every single night,” says Jillian.

DeAnna Pappasjillian-ed

Former Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas wishes the best for Jillian Harris, who recently moved to Chicago to live with cheating fiance Ed Swiderski.

“I do hope it works out for them; the odds are against them,” she told Usmagazine at the Madison & Mulholland charity suite in West Hollywood over the weekend.

“Supposedly Jillan and Ed are head over heels in love. I haven’t hung out with them, but we have mutual friends, and they say they are just crazy about each other,” she added. “It seems to be working so far.”

It was reported that Ed cheated on Jillian with 2 different women during the taping of The Bachelorette, and also just 8 days after proposing to her.

This news did not surprise DeAnna who says, “I wasn’t an Ed fan while [Jillian] was filming the show.”

“I think some people go on the shows with different intentions and maybe they are not open in the beginning what their intentions are,” she told US, without elaborating. “So in the end, you get duped.”

DeAnna is however a bit more optimistic about Bachelor couple, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, who are still together despite the odds. “They are so happy, and I do think that they are going to get married,” said DeAnna. “They really just get each other, and it works for them.”

Melissa Rycroft is speaking out on behalf of her buddy and former Bachelor castmate, Jillian Harris. Despite her fiance’s alleged cheating, Jillian and Ed are doing fine, says Melissa.

“She is doing really well,” Melissa told Usmagazine Wednesday at a charity event in L.A. “Her and Ed are happy, and I know she is going to become a U.S. citizen. She’s moving to Chicago.”

“You know, granted it’s not my business to comment, but Jillian’s real life is fantastic,” continued Melissa.  When asked if she believes Jillian and Ed will still wed, Melissa says, “I absolutely do…I know they love each other, and I know they are planning a wedding, and I know she wants to marry him. I hope it works out for them.”

In the meantime, Melissa continues to plan her wedding to fiance, Tye Strickland.

The-Bachelorette-Jillian-and-Ed

The Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris continues to laugh of rumors of her fiance, Ed Swiderski‘s infidelities. When asked about the cheating allegations, Jillian delcares her love for Ed telling OK Magazine, “We have not even come close [to splitting].”

The couple is currently enjoying some time together in Canada. They both attended Jillian’s cousin wedding this weekend. You can see photos of the wedding here.

“We’ve got a Jet Ski, so we’ve been spending lots of time on the lake,” says Jillian, who is still planning to move to Ed’s home city of Chicago in September.

Jillian’s friends also back her decision to stay with Ed, “Jill was aware that there was a risk of this kind of tabloid attention when she got involved in the show,” reasons Shannon Long, who speaks with Jillian every day.

It was reported a few days ago that money might be a motivation for Jillian and Ed staying together.

If you recall, the first Bachelorette Trista Rehn and then fiance, Ryan Stutter, got paid the amount of $1 million to have their wedding televised back in 2003. There’s obviously a huge amount of money at stake if Jillian and Ed make it down the aisle.
