i've really become so confused by all of this.
on one hand, it seems that neither jake nor vienna was at all surprised or disappointed on the person their choice turned out to be off of the show. meaning, they each knew what they were getting into, and chose it willingly because their goals and desires line up at least for the time being.
and for those reasons, i want to have hope for their success as a couple, and i actually do have hope.
on the other hand, the media has been very successful in at least creating the appearance of vienna being a scandalously bad choice for jake. between loads of people speaking up about her past indiscretions, an ex-bf being arrested, party photos... all that combined with jake going on yet another show, i do wonder if they are in it for love or money, so to speak.
i will never argue that either person has great class or character. i do keep coming back to the place where i think that they want the same thing, whatever it is, or at least believe that their relationship is mutually beneficial for their individual goals.
so, what's the point in slamming them, or in further scandal? it is what it is and they have what they want
