Are ABC's Bachelor Bob Guiney and Estella Gardinier, the woman that he selected at the conclusion of the series, already broken up? According to at least one New York City newspaper gossip column, yes.

Apparently following in the flamed-out footsteps of other reality couples such as original Bachelor Alex Michael & Amanda Marsh, follow-up Bachelor Aaron Buerge & Helene Eksterowicz, and Joe Millionaire's Evan Marriott & Zora Andrich, Friday's edition of the New York Post's "Page Six" column reported that Bob and Estella ended their relationship "the second the cameras stopped rolling."

According to the report, Bob has recently been "telling women he is single" and, during a Saturday night out on the town in New York City on November 22 -- only three days after the finale for the fourth edition of The Bachelor aired -- Estella confirmed the couple's "no more" status to club-goers. Estella, a Californian who presumably was still in New York for post-finale media appearances, reportedly was accompanied to the LG nightclub by Kutty Kass, the brother of Estonian model and former Gap girl Carmen Kass. While at the club, Estella "told everyone she and Bob were not together" according to those in attendance.

A reality TV show couple not working out? Say it isn't so... ah well, assuming the report is true, it's probably for the best, now that Bob has his sights set on becoming a big time musician, if Estella thought competing with 24 other women was difficult, it's best she not have to deal with the inevitable "groupie" phase. At least Cupid's Lisa Shannon and Hank Stepleton and Bachelor 3's Andrew Firestone and Jen Schefft still appear (at of last reports) to be fueling hope that some reality show couple will eventually follow Trista Rehn and Ryan Sutter down the aisle.

In the meantime, we'll await word if, unlike the last Bachelor couple that broke-up, Bob was smart enough to not unceremoniously dump Estella at a neighborhood Starbucks.
