'The Bachelor': Vienna Girardi's other 'mystery man' defends her honor
Who was that second guy mentioned in -- but bleeped out of -- Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi's final sit-down counseling interview this week?
His name Todd Michael Krim and his charity is called Reality Cares. Todd tells The Dish Rag exclusively what really happened on that infamous Saturday night, how he ended up with Vienna, her involvement with his charity event, her new job and what he overheard during Jake's angry phone calls to her that night.
"They were still on talking terms then," says Todd. "I don't like to get in the middle of things but I was in the car and I have to say I was a little surprised to how he was reacting to her just having me there. Jake and I had met several times before and I was surprised that he was getting upset that she was with me....He was also upset that I was in the apartment with her which was a little strange. I thought he knew who I was and it was completely innocent."
Off-camera Todd revealed that Jake was screaming at her on the phone and being verbally abusive. "I had no idea until I was a witness to that sort of thing."
Todd was with her all Saturday for a photo shoot and invited her to the event Saturday night. She and Todd went to her apartment where she changed into a dress and he, Vienna and several other celebrities, including Gregory Michael, took a limo to the hospital for the cancer event where Miley Cyrus' ex-boyfriend Justin Gaston performed for the patients and the staff.
"Everything Vienna said during that interview was was absolutely true," says Todd, including the lack of physical affection. Off camera, he told us that there was a time when Vienna was putting rose petals on the bed, leading into the bathroom to seduce Jake. But nothing worked. "Four months sleeping in the same bed and nothing happens," he marveled. He also refutes claims that Vienna made up the whole charity event and/or got cozy with Gregory MIchael at the event.
"That's absolutely not true," he says. "As far as I know, they're just friends. They bonded because they had both lived in Florida. He's a great guy... a fun person to be around."
Todd also talks about Vienna's new job with Biolustre hair care as the head of their corporate philanthropy and their collaboration on an upcoming event (more deets to come) for kids with cancer at a top salon in Los Angeles.
"Vienna has a voice now and after the interview the other night, she probably has a lot more fans." Todd is certain Vienna can use her celebrity status for good.
Let's hope so. Good luck, Vienna.
