People magazine is reporting Antonio, 37, stepped out with his new girlfriend, singer-songwriter Cheryl Moana Marie, on Sunday at the Hollywood Christmas Parade, introducing her as “my girlfriend.” The photo of the couple from that night is above.
According to a source, shortly after Sabato’s show wrapped, he and the Hawaiian-born singer began to date. “They are so solid, so happy together,” the source says.
Brooke Barlow, who won Antonio’s heart on My Antonio, said back in October that the two gave their relationship a try, but ended up breaking up after a few months of dating.
With the 2nd season of For The Love of Ray J premiering last week, Cocktail is once again opening up about her break up with Ray J. In a new interview with the season 1 winner, Joanna “Cocktail” Hernandez tells In Touch that Ray J broke her heart and that he only did the show for money and exposure. She also reveals what’s going right with her career.
When did you first sense that things weren’t going to work out with Ray J?
Things didn’t feel right after the reunion. I tried to be his girlfriend, and then we went on tour and there were rumors that he was going to do season two. When I asked him about it, he said “no,” but then I found out the truth, among other things. Ray did break my heart — this whole thing has been an emotional roller coaster. I was offered a guest spot on season two, but I declined. I mean, why make me look stupid again? I’m not about to go on his show and support a season two when it’s all lies.
What are your feelings toward Ray J today?
I care about him, and when I am around him, sometimes the feelings come back again. But I’m at a place now where talking about what really happened is allowing me to move on.
Do you think he’s sincerely looking for love — or looking for fame?
Ray doesn’t have to go on a show to find love. It’s about exposure and money.
What’s your advice for the winner?
Enjoy it while it lasts — it’s a short ride.
What’s next for you?
I have a weekly one-hour show called Hangin’ With JoJo — it’s fun and laid-back. I am focused on my career — in which direction it’s going, I’m not 100-percent certain, but I am in a few upcoming movies. So I am excited about that! For details on me, go to welovecocktail.com.
Would you do more reality TV?
I would do more reality TV for sure — but not about finding love! I would love to do Dancing With the Stars or Big Brother. I can dream, can’t I?

Tell Us – Will You Be Tuning In For The Second Season? What Are Your Thoughts On The Season Premier?
The question on a lot of people’s minds is whether or not the couples are still together. Well the finale was shot in June, and according to Hot Wings aka Kamille Leai, she and Chance are no longer an item. Doll confirms she and Real are no longer together as well.
Hot Wings posted the following messages on her Twitter, revealing that Chance never got in touch with her once the show finished filming. She reveals the same went for Doll. She says she did not find love on the show, and even jokes about a 3rd season. Her tweets are below –
first off, let me just say that i heard from chance ONE TIME since we shot the show back in June, and it was thru twitter….7 minutes agofrom web
neone surprised!!! lmao..so NO i really didnt “WIN” the show. i did NOT find love with chance, HELL i cant even find chance PERIOD!!!7 minutes agofrom web
much love and respect to chance but i never heard from him after the show, and neither did doll from real..so what are we suppose to do?!?!6 minutes agofrom web
it was a great experience, chance is still a great guy,at least he got what he wanted, and that was a show..cant wait for season 3..hehe3 minutes agofrom web
Doll has also confirmed she and Real are no longer together in a new interview with VH1.
So it’s officially not going to happen with Real?
Yeah, it’s officially not there. We don’t have a relationship established of that sort. I’m a beautiful, well-rounded girl. I’m looking for love and I’m sure any guy would love to be with me, so I’m not worried about the situation.
When did it become clear to you that things weren’t working out?
It became clear about a month after the show was over. I mean, are you kidding me? For a guy not to contact me for a whole month after we supposedly became close? You picked me out of the 10 or 15 other girls that were on the show for you. And I wasn’t pursued a month after that?
It’s quite funny because these two douches spent their entire time on the show whining about wanting to find love, and accusing all the women of being on the show for the wrong reasons, when in actuality, they had zero intentions of committing to any of the ladies. It’s safe to say we will be hearing an announcement about a 3rd season any day now.
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.

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.
