(Edited from AP, Los Angeles) She said he wasn’t intimate. He said she wasn’t faithful. She called him a fame whore. He called her jealous. For weeks, the nasty break-up of “The Bachelor” couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi has been fought in the tabloids. In their latest round of sparring, the pair were back in front of the reality TV cameras where it all began.

“Unfortunately, that’s what one of our arguments looks like,” Pavelka said after a weeping Girardi stomped away from their pre-taped reunion at the end of Monday’s episode of “The Bachelorette” starring Ali Fedotowsky, the former Facebook advertising account manager who chose her job over Pavelka during his “Bachelor” season. “It’s kind of embarrassing.”

(Edited from AP, Los Angeles) She said he wasn’t intimate. He said she wasn’t faithful. She called him a fame whore. He called her jealous. For weeks, the nasty break-up of “The Bachelor” couple Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi has been fought in the tabloids. In their latest round of sparring, the pair were back in front of the reality TV cameras where it all began.

“Unfortunately, that’s what one of our arguments looks like,” Pavelka said after a weeping Girardi stomped away from their pre-taped reunion at the end of Monday’s episode of “The Bachelorette” starring Ali Fedotowsky, the former Facebook advertising account manager who chose her job over Pavelka during his “Bachelor” season. “It’s kind of embarrassing.”

“The Bachelor” host Chris Harrison moderated the pool-side debate between the couple, who called off their engagement last month. The 32-year-old pilot from Dallas and the 23-year-old Geneva, Fla., resident quarreled over such issues as where they should place furniture in their home and why she gave an interview to a tabloid about their split.

Normally, when the couples who meet on “The Bachelor” or “The Bachelorette” end their made-on-TV relationships – just three out of 19 are still together – their publicists release a statement announcing an amicable parting before they quietly fade back into obscurity. Pavelka and Girardi, however, quickly launched into public mudslinging after ending their romance.

Girardi lashed out first by appearing on the cover of Star magazine alongside the headline “Jake’s a MONSTER!” Pavelka then struck back on the front of People magazine above the headline “I DON’T TRUST HER.” Girardi later dodged infidelity allegations on Twitter, while Pavelka unloaded about his relationship regrets in an interview with “Extra” host Mario Lopez.

Monday’s reunion likely won’t be the last time viewers see Girardi and Pavelka in the spotlight. Girardi said she got a job in Los Angeles, and Pavelka has filmed a guest spot for Lifetime’s legal drama “Drop Dead Diva.” Beyond that, maybe they could try looking for love again on another season of “The Bachelor.” Casting for the 15th edition is currently under way.
