Reality TV People News - April 2003
The NY Post is reporting that in addition to his already well-documented breakup with ex-fiancée Helene Eksterowicz, the bloom is also coming off of the publicity rose for Aaron Buerge, the star of the second edition of ABC's "The Bachelor."
He may not have won Trista Rehn's heart, but he did win the better TV gig. The NY Post reports that Charlie Maher, the 28-year-old former financial adviser who was chosen by Trista as runner-up to firefighter Ryan Sutter on The Bacheloretter, has been hired by Extra as a special correspondent to cover Hollywood people and events. His qualification appears to be his friendships with such celebrity partiers as Jennie Garth, Tea Leoni (David Duchovny's wife) and Kelly Preston (John Travolta's wife).
Almost two months ago, in the finale of ABC's The Bachelorette, all of America watched Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter proclaim their love for each other and their plan to become the first couple from a reality TV show to actually tie the knot. Shortly thereafter, we reported that the lovebirds had registered at a Century City Bloomingdale's, not too far from Trista's LA home. So what's the latest on the wedding plans of the first couple of reality TV?
