Reality TV war of words!
Jake Pavelka's former Bachelor suitors Gia Allemand and Vienna Girardi appeared to get along during 2009 filming of the ABC series, but as a new string of vicious Twitter posts show, their friendship could be on its way out the door.
Implying that Girardi is dating Allemand's ex-boyfriend, former Bachelorette contestant Wes Hayden, Allemand declared herself more of a contender to become next season's new bachelorette.
"I guess I can hope to be the Bachelorette now that Wes is dating Vienna!" Allemand, 26, tweeted late Tuesday.
Girardi, 23, denied she's dating Hayden, despite her costar's claims they hooked up at a recent Bachelor reunion in Texas.
"It's sad that people have to make up lies (Gia) that I'm dating someone so they can get sympathy and attempt to become the Bachelorette," Girardi sniped via the micro-blogging site.
"[You are] a bad friend [and] everyone saw you guys at the reunion and in Texas. And [you] even approached me — hope they got it on camera. We will see soon on the Women Tell All [special]," Allemand shot back. "The world already knows [your] true colors."
The pair's Internet feud comes less than a year after Pavelka's final rose recipient said Allemand should have taken Ali Fedotowsky's place on the Bachelor spinoff's most recent installment.
One of Girardi's Twitter friends, "AliThompson08," raved about third-place Allemand. "She was a sweetheart on the show! she should've been the new bachelorette!…not Ali!"
"I can't tell you how much I agree," Girardi replied. Allemand, she says, "would have been the best bachelorette!"
Though ABC has yet to publicly announce plans for the next Bachelorette season, Allemand has said she'd love to take part.
"Yeah, I would definitely consider it," she told USA Today. "It's such an amazing experience. I would love to find love and see how it is on the other end."
