Well, that was quick! Just weeks after appearing on The Bachelorette: After The Final Rose to assure the world that they were happy, in love, and engaged, “English gentleman” Matt Grant and his “monkey” Shayne Lamas are dunzo. The official line? “Heading in different directions.” But the NY Post’s Page Six reported on July 16 that Shayne was hooking up with “Las Vegas media magnate Justin Weneger.”
Sheesh, kids. I don’t know what to say at this point. I’m even finding it hard to feel surprised or outraged. The post-finale break-up has become just another tired Bachelor ritual, like the hometown dates and the roses. And it’s hard to believe Matt and Monkey actually “tried hard to make it work.” They haven’t been together long enough to really try hard, don’t you think?
I really, really hope DeAnna and Jesse fare better. Am I a fool to believe? Most likely.
