Trista Sutter -- one of the only Bachelorette stars still in a successful relationship -- was hardly shocked when she heard that Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi had called it quits.

"I can't say I was surprised," she tells Extra. "It must have not been meant to be ... at least they figured it out before they got married."

Pavelka's Dancing With the Stars castmate Niecy Nash tells she was taken aback the news, however.

"To me, [their relationship] seemed very solid," she told Us Wednesday at the "Flushing for a Cause" event in NYC. "I saw the way he looked at her. I saw her holding her breath at DWTS when it was fearful he might be voted out. They just seemed to be each other’s champions, so I am sad."

But she has a message for them both: "Don’t give up on love," she told Us. "Can you find it in a house with 25 people on an island and all you have to do is drink champagne every day? I don’t know. But you can find it. I just don't want either of them to be discouraged because they’re both really, really good people."
