Look, we didn’t expect Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi to last forever, but this is just cold. Pavelka revealed to People that he kicked his fiancee to the curb in a phone call because she was distracting him from his “Drop Dead Diva” character.
“One of the keys to acting is you have to get out of your head,” he says. “This [show] didn’t hire me to be Jake, they
hired me to play Toby Davlin. I can’t be Jake and sell this character.”
