Michael Stagliano

Following the surprise announcement on the Bachelor Pad finale that his ex-fiance was now engaged to her new beau, Michael Stagliano is speaking out on what he calls a humiliating moment.

On Monday’s airing of the Bachelor Pad reunion, Michael was brought out on stage and told his ex Holly Durst was enaged to fellow contestant Blake Julian. Immediately following the reunion taping last week in Los Angeles, both Michael and Holly spoke to PEOPLE.

“I was caught off guard, humiliated. I know neither Holly nor Blake wanted it to go down like that,” said Michael. “I’m now even more thankful for the talk we had two weeks ago, which provided closure I didn’t have before. If we hadn’t had that that, it would have been so much worse tonight. I might have just walked off stage.”

Holly, who actually got engaged days before the reunion taping, goes on to blame ABC and the Bachelor Pad producers for setting up Michael.

“I was really upset,” said Holly. “I was thinking, “Well, at least I will be able to tell him before the show so he isn’t blindsided.” But I wasn’t allowed to speak to him prior to walking out on stage. As soon as I sat down, I whispered that I needed to talk badly and then the bomb was dropped almost immediately. He was blindsided. That was the lowest thing they could have done for ratings.”

Umm Holly, you had days to tell him but you didn’t! Michael however keeps it classy when he reveals he is actually happy for Holly despite all.

Michael states, “We were engaged and therefore I will always care about and love her so it makes me happy when she is happy. I wish we could have been happy together but we’re always going to care about and love each other. I have no reason to be mad at Holly or Blake. You can’t help who you fall for.”

Holly adds, “If we had walked out there hating each other, I don’t think we would have gotten as many votes. He’s the best guy and I can’t wait for him to find the right girl.”

Meanwhile Bachelor insider Reality Steve is reporting that Holly’s fiance Blake got the $25,000 Neil Lane diamond engagement ring for free from ABC in exchange for allowing them to tape the proposal. Classy. Holly will reportedly have to return the three carats cushion-cut diamond ring in the case that the engagement gets called off.

The Bachelor Pad season 2 three-hour finale aired last night and new winners were crowned!

Beating out the other 16 contestants, Holly Durst and her partner/ex-fiance Michael Stagliano emerged the winners, taking home the $250,000 prize on the ABC show Monday night.

Holly and Michael beat out runner-ups Graham Bunn and Michelle Money. The 14 eliminated contestants were the ones who voted, giving Holly and Michael got 10 votes, while Michelle and Graham only got 4.

The finale was of course not without drama. It was revealed that Holly, 28, had gotten engaged to Blake Julian, 28, much to the complete surprise of her former fiance Michael, 27. Michael was understandably upset as he wondered why he had to find out about the engagement on the show.

While Michael admitted he was “hurt” he hadn’t heard about her engagement before the reunion show, he didn’t let it deter him from choosing to share the prize with Holly. The two partners ended up taking home $125,000 each.


A week after the new season premiere, we are now bringing you the Bachelor Pad season 2 spoilers!

Bachelor insider Reality Steve has done it again revealing the final four couples in the competition as well as the last two couples standing.

Do not read any further if you do not want to know the ending. If you do, the spoilers are below!


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.

While the world continues to wonder what happened to Jake Pavelka’s pilot license or that whole not being a famewhore thingy, he is set to star in yet another upcoming reality show!

The former Bachelor star, who just finished filming a reality show for VH1 titled ‘Famous Food,’ will appear on the upcoming season of ABC’s Bachelor spinoff the Bachelor Pad! But it gets even better as his ex-fiance, Vienna Girardi, will be joining him on the show.

While ABC has yet to officially announce the cast, RadarOnline broke the news this week. Jake and Vienna had a very nasty and public split last year in June during which Vienna sold her story to a tabloid, insinuating Jake might be gay revealing she had been in a sexless and emotionally abusive relationship with Jake.

Joining Jake and Vienna in the competition to win the $250,000 prize will be past controversial contestant Rozlyn Papa, plus Holly Durst and Michael Stagliano (the two recently broke of their engagement).

Other cast members include guys: Graham Bunn, Tanner Pope, Kirk DeWindt, Stu Lopoten and David Vargas. And girls: Erica Rose, Melissa Shrieber, Asheigh Hunt, Madison Garton, Michelle Money and Jackie Gordon.

The second season of ABC’s Bachelor Pad premieres on Monday, August 8.


Deanna Pappas fiance Stephen StaglianoHolly Durst and Michael Stagliano

Former Bachelorette star Deanna Pappas is once again engaged according to UsWeekly.

DeAnna, 28, confirms to the magazine that she is indeed engaged to Stephen Stagliano, who just happens to be the twin brother of former Bachelorette contestant Michael Stagliano. “I was crying, holding his hands, and he showed me the ring. I just nodded, like, ‘Yeah!'” DeAnna tells Us.

UsWeekly is also reporting that former Bachelor contestant Holly Durst is engaged to Michael Stagliano, a contestant on the Bachelorette season of Jillian Harris. Michael proposed to Holly on June 26th.

DeAnna and Holly both met their fiances (the twins) at a party for 2009’s The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special. The two engaged couples plan on having a double wedding in the spring of 2010.

The quartet is also hoping to have their weddings featured on an impending reality show titled Four Better, for Worse.

Jesse Csincsak and Ann Lueders

Continuing with the Bachelor incestuous theme, RadarOnline is now reporting Jesse Csincsak is engaged to former Bachelor contestant Ann Lueders.

In case you’re wondering, yes this is the same Jesse who used to be engaged to DeAnna Pappas after winning her Bachelorette season in 2008, and yes this is the same Jesse who briefly dated DeAnna’s future sister-in-law to be, Holly Durst in 2009. Whew!

Jesse, who might or might not be a raging famewhore, made sure to invite the RadarOnline cameras to capture every moment of his intimate engagement and also made sure to tell the site he proposed with a “stunning $22,000 custom-made 2 carat princess cut engagement ring designed by Rob Levit of North Eastern Ohio-based Levit Jewelers Inc.”

And in case you’re asking yourself, who the heck is Ann Lueders? Well you’re not alone. A quick search however shows Ann was on the Bachelor season 13 with Jason Mesnick. She was however eliminated the first night.


The latest issue US Weekly brings us another not so flattering cover story for Jillian Harris and her fiance, Ed Swiderski. The issue focuses on how Ed was able to trick and manipulate Jillian, while juggling his two other girlfriends.

A few of The Bachelorette contestants tell US Weekly they heard Ed talk about having a girlfriend back home. Wes Hayden is one of the men speaking out, and he would know a thing or two this topic, considering he was accused of having a girlfriend while on the show as well. Below are some of what the guys are saying -

Wes Hayden – “Dave [Good] and I both remember Ed saying he had a girlfriend,” says Hayden, who also was accused of having a girlfriend while on the show. “But we are not the kind who are going to run our mouths.”

Michael Stagliano – “There was definitely something, I can’t put my finger on it, where I did think, I’m not going to be best friends with this guy. Ed’s a shady character.”

Jesse Kovacs – Bachelorette contestants are required to relinquish cellphones and laptops on the show to keep interaction lively among the participants. But because of Ed’s job as a Microsoft consultant, he “had an agreement” to keep both “because it was imperative for him to have access for work.”

Reid Rosenthal – Says some contestants knew Ed was bad news and “didn’t care to hang out with him.”

The cover story also claims Reid Rosenthal still has feelings for Jillian. Nothing will likely come from that as Reid is the front runner to become the new Bachelor, and Jillian has no plans of ending things with Ed.
