Talk about a rocky reunion!

Sitting down with host Chris Harrison for a July 5 Bachelorette special, exes Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka open up about their highly-publicized split.

"I know Jake, and I knew as soon as we broke up he was going to run to a media outlet and tell his side of the story," the ex-Hooters waitress, 24, musters while fighting back tears. "I wanted to make sure I had a voice also...I want people to know I did try in this relationship."

Pavelka, 32, stares off into the distance as his ex continues to explain herself.

"I loved him," she says. "I wanted it to be different."
