"We will be having the first exclusive interview with Jake and Vienna together [about] their break-up on our July 5 show," a network spokeswoman told reporters on Thursday.
The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love couple issued a statement confirming their split on Monday night after Greek actor Gregory Michael said Girardi told him she was single and no longer with Pavelka when they met while attending a children's hospital prom near Los Angeles on Saturday. Girardi and Michael were subsequently seen kissing at a Santa Monica public beach party event on Sunday.
While Girardi's side of the split is featured in a Star magazine cover-story interview and Pavelka's in a People magazine cover-story interview, ABC's July 5 sit down will have the former couple discussing the break-up together.
"Hopefully, it's gonna be some closure for me," Pavelka toldExtra in an interview scheduled to air on Thursday's broadcast.
"America was there and stood with me at the birth of our relationship, and I think I owe it to them and to myself and Vienna to let everybody be there at the end of it. That everybody understands that it was real. And I don't regret it. I regret what is happening right now. But I don't regret the decision that I made. I made the best decision on The Bachelor."
Pavelka presented his final rose and a marriage proposal to Girardi -- and she accepted both during March's The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love finale broadcast, which filmed last fall.
