Jillian Harris and Ed Update

the-bachelorette-jillian-harris-ed

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.

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.

Despite cheating allegations and rumors of a break up, newly engaged Bachelorette couple Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski are still together.

An insider told In Touch Weekly that both Ed and Jillian plan to stay engaged and work through the problems, specifically the cheating allegations. “When Jillian accepted Ed’s proposal, she was starting to fall in love,” the magazine reports.

The insider continues, saying it wasn’t until after accepting the $60,000 ring that Jillian started to hear rumors that Ed might have kept company with a past girlfriend, among others.

A lot of people are wondering why Jillian has agreed to stay with Ed despite all the evidence pointing to him cheating. Former Bachelorette contestant, DeAnna Pappas believes money might be a factor.

“Hours after my finale, I was bombarded with offers for endorsements, special appearances and more,” Pappas told In Touch. “But the catch was they wanted both me and my fiancé (Jesse Csincsak).”

Four months following the final rose ceremony and proposal, DeAnna and Jesse broke up. Both were offered $10,000 to appear at a nightclub and $5,000 to appear at a mall.

“If Jesse and I stayed together, we could have easily cashed in,” Pappas said. “But for me, it felt like selling out.”

UPDATE – Edited to add that ABC paid the first Bachelorette, Trista Rehn and husband Ryan Sutter, $1 million to televise their wedding back in 2003.  So Jillian and Ed making it down the aisle could mean big bucks for the couple.
