**UPDATE 8/29** We now know “Emily from Chicago’s” full name, it’s Emily Cahill. Read more here.***
WOW! Last night the finale of Bachelor Pad 3 was taped in LA. And even though we don’t like show spoilers (like, who wins all of the cash), we do like reading up on who is dating who and any juicy love-related nuggets we can get our hands on. And – several different sources are confirming that BP3 contestant Michael Stagliano had a girlfriend that’s not from the franchise prior to going on the show. Then, he broke up with her (some girl named Emily from Chicago) so that he could be legitimately single while on the show. And then, when he was booted from BP3, he immediately picked things back up with this Emily and they’re still dating (and considering moving to be closer to one another) today.
Sources are saying that this “Emily from Chicago” is a girl that Michael met while on one of his music tours for his burgeoning music career. We can’t wait to figure out more intel about her! But – at least we have a first name and a city! Haha.
Also, it would seem that Rachel Truehart is a bit (understatement) upset that Michael led her to believe he went on BP3 looking for love (and seemed to at least pretend to find it with her) only to later find out that he had feelings for someone off-screen the entire time they were filming. (Check out this deleted scene clip of Michael leading Rachel on….)
I would have to bet that this “Emily from Chicago” is equally upset that Michael broke up with her to be single on a trashy reality TV show! I mean….he’s not a real rock star, Emily. You don’t need to be such a pushover for this guy! (Yes, we still love Stags, but seriously…. it’s crazy what these reality “stars” will do for a little extra screen time!) If I were Emily OR Rachel, I’d be a bit disappointed in our fair Stags!!
