The vote that led to Jake Pavelka’s Episode 3 elimination on Bachelor Pad 2 last summer was one of the closest (and most controversial) the ABC reality series had ever seen. But, Pavelka doesn’t have any desire to settle old scores.
When asked if he’d return if the show’s producers invited him back to the pad for another season, Pavelka, 34, replied, “They did and no.”
The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love star said the reality show’s $250,000 prize wasn’t a motivator either. “[With] what you have to deal with, the stakes are too high,” he said at Warner Bros. TV’s 25th Celebration at The Bachelor mansion in Agoura Hills, Calif.
Pavelka competed on the second season of Bachelor Pad — which reunites all-stars from various seasons of The Bachelor and The Bachelorette to battle it out for the cash prize and possibly another shot at love — to make amends with his ex-fiancée and Bachelor pick, Vienna Girardi.
“Well, I had some spilled milk to clean up,” he admitted. “That’s what that was about.”
And even though Girardi led the charge to eliminate him, Pavelka feels he “absolutely” accomplished his goal.
“Everybody showed their true colors. I was able to walk away gracefully,” the Dallas pilot says.
Though his time on The Bachelor franchise made him famous and led to acting opportunities, including Lifetime’s Drop Dead Diva and the CBS soap The Bold and the Beautiful, he does have at least one regret from his time on the reality series.
After eight months together – three in the public spotlight – Pavelka and Girardi agreed to do a breakup special that aired on ABC in July 2010.
Insults were hurled back and forth: Girardi calling him a “fame whore” and “liar,” Pavelka said she was addicted to the limelight, as well, and accused her of cheating on him. In the end, Girardi walked off the set crying, as Pavelka seemed cold to viewers throughout the special.
Today, he says, “The only thing that I should have done differently about that was when they told me they were doing the interview is said, ‘Get lost.’ I shouldn’t have done it.”
Adam Lambert is walking away from his deal with 19 Records. But don’t worry — though his style and attitude are fierce, his relationship with the label is perfectly friendly, and he’s still got another deal.
The Hollywood Reporter reports that Lambert’s contract with 19 expired and he simply chose not to renew it. It won’t affect his musical output much, as he will still be signed to RCA, of which 19 is a subsidiary. Lambert left 19 Management in August 2011, but remained on the label until this month.
A source close to the dealings says the split is mutually beneficial. “It’s good for both sides,” an insider said. “Adam can move forward with his plans and 19 isn’t stuck in the middle.”
Lambert’s rep confirms that it was a mutual decision and that Lambert and 19 Records left “amicably and with the utmost respect for each other.” He’s not signed to RCA Records and to Direct Management Group, which also names Lambert’s pal Katy Perry as a client. 19 Records is still home to many ‘American Idol‘ alumni, including current champ Phillip Phillips.
Lambert’s publicist also pointed out that the move is part of his “evolution.” We can’t wait to see what else he’s got in store for us!

Another year, another reason why Liam Hemsworth is still one of Hollywood’s hottest men.
The Hunger Games actor turns the but 2-3 this Sunday, and he’s looking better than ever. Whether he’s suited up on the red carpet or stripped down to his trunks at the beach, the Australian hunk knows how to turn heads — especially when it comes to getting his fiancee Miley Cyrus‘ attention.
According to the 20-year-old Two and a Half Men star, her beau caught her eye immediately when auditioning for their first movie together, The Last Song.
“[When] I met him, and he opened the door for me, and I was like, I have been in L.A. for three years and I don’t think any guy has actually opened the door for me,” she said on Ellen DeGeneres‘s daytime talk show in 2010. “It wasn’t that he wanted the job. That’s just who he is. I was like, ‘Wow, that is super-impressive.’”
“I actually turned to the director and said, ‘He’s got the job.’ He’s hot and he opened the door. Excellent.”
Likewise, Hemsworth is head-over-heels for his ladylove, gushing about Cyrus in an interview with Details last year:
She makes me really happy. When you start [filming a movie], you want to be professional, but when you’re filming those scenes with someone and pretending to love them, you’re not human if you don’t feel something.
To celebrate this Aussie’s birthday, Celebuzz is reliving his sexiest moments over the years.
Back on January 21st, in “Misery Loves Company,” Annie (Grimes) and Vanessa (Arielle Kebbel) search for Liam (Matt Lanter) after discovering that Ashley (Natalie Morales) was falsely posing as his studio-hired bodyguard.
Must be nice to be Blue Ivy! The beautiful baby daughter of Jay-Z and Beyonce marked her first birthday on Jan. 7, and her proud parents celebrated in a big way.
Hov and Bey plunked down $200,000 in total on Blue’s birthday soiree. Nothing is too good for their little princess! Where did that cash go?
The Sun reports that the power couple spent $95,000 on pink and white roses for the party (why not blue ones?!), which had a princess theme. The birthday cake cost over $2,000, while the pair spent a mint on gift bags for their young guests, featuring toys, princess outfits, personalized engraved gold pens, playhouses and jewelry to the tune of $30,000.
A source told the tab, “Nothing’s been too big or expensive for their little princess. They wanted her first birthday to set the tone for the rest of her life. They work hard for their money and the first thing they want to spend it on is their baby girl.” The sourced added, “It’s hard to imagine how they can top this next year — or what her Sweet Sixteen will be like.”
Aside from the party, what was Blue’s gift? A cool $80,000 diamond-encrusted Barbie doll. And, you know, that $1 million nursery.

Some of Australia’s very finest celebrated their homeland on Saturday, ahead of the Golden Globe Awards.
From Nicole Kidman and husband Keith Urban to a mini Grease reunion between Olivia Newton John and John Travolta, there was plenty of star action at the 10th Annual G’Day USA Gala, held at the JW Marriot in Los Angeles, Calif.
“As we kissed our daughters goodbye when we headed out tonight we kind of went, ‘Wow, it’s amazing how life plays out,’” the Paperboy actress told the Australian Associated Press [via The Sydney Morning Herald].
“Look what happened from that chance meeting. We now have a 2-year-old and a 4-year-old who are waving us bye.”
Britney Spears is having the crappiest week … ever. After splitting from fiancé Jason Trawick and also breaking up with ‘X Factor,’ the pop diva is dealing with a sick puppy. Her teacup Yorkie Hannah is reportedly deathly ill.
The adorbs pooch, who has her own Twitter account, has had to visit the hospital for the third time in recent weeks.
According to RadarOnline, Brit Brit bought the itty bitty pooch for $1,800 at Barkworks in California. Turns out the pet chain has come under fire for getting its dogs from puppy mills. It also received an “F” from the Better Business Bureau, so its rep as a pet-selling establishment is certainly poor, and the fact that Brit purchased as opposed to rescuing might cause her to get some flack from animal rights activists.
Brit reportedly took her little girl to the vet after obtaining her in late November. The dog was reportedly “listless, eyes half shut, not responding to voices, not eating and having trouble breathing.”
Oh no! The poor thing.
Brit took Hannah to her vet on Jan. 3, which was the third visit in a short period of time.
The canine cutie was treated and tested for liver issues, and was monitored for temperature problems and having fluid in her lungs.
The source says the dog’s condition is unstable, but because Brit is rich and can pay the endless vet bills, the dog has a second lease on life and is being cared for.
