Ali Fedotowsky, Danielle Staub
Oh, it was on last night in reality land! And by "reality," of course we mean the staged and highly orchestrated "unscripted" TV offerings of the evening, but still. That doesn't make the smackdowns any less awesome to witness, right?
First up was The Bachelorette's Ali unleashing her inner angry-girl...
Ali and the seven remaining bachelors continue their global adventures with a trip to Istanbul on this week's episode of The Bachelorette. However, the trip takes a dark turn when Ali, who has repeatedly turned a deaf ear to the other guys' warnings about Justin, finds out something out about the "Rated R" wrestler she can't ignore...
Last week, Justin escaped from that volcano in Iceland. Tonight, after the love jet lands in Istanbul, Ali learns that he has a girlfriend back home (from the girlfriend, no less), and we hear that she takes this breach of "Bachelor" etiquette very, very seriously. Talk about out of the frying pan and into the fire! But there are six other guys and only five roses to bestow. So, gentlemen, slather yourselves in olive oil and wrestle. The winner earns a dinner cruise on the Bosporus with Ali while the losers just get greasy. Next stop: Portugal.
Read on for previews of MLB Baseball, Huge, Secret Life of the American Teenager, Gossip Girl, Kevorkian and Intervention.
Vienna Girardi and Jake Pavelka
ABC says no one was "ever physically in harm's way" during the taping of an interview between Bachelor alum Jake Pavelka and ex- fiancé Vienna Girardi.

Jimmy Kimmel, Landon Donovan
We're no xenophobes, but television had us feeling rather patriotic this week. Treme made us bow our heads for the Louisiana bayou. Top Chef aimed at improving our kids' school lunches. American John Isner triumphed in a record-breaking Wimbledon match. Jimmy Kimmel made lemonade out of a lemon-y electrical problem. And the U.S. World Cup team's last-minute victory had us waving a giant foam finger that says "We're No. 1." — tastefully, of course. Welcome to Top Moments: American Ingenuity Edition.
Newly single Jake Pavelka is getting back to his Bachelor roots with an appearance on the upcoming spinoff Bachelor Pad, a series rep says.
"I can't explain everything. It just happened, but Jake Pavelka will definitely play his part...
The Bachelorette, Kasey Kahl
The Bachelorette's most recent reject says he doesn't regret getting a tattoo that may have sealed his fate on the ABC dating show.
When the show's star, Ali Fedotowsky, told Kasey Kahl to stop trying so hard to win her affection, he did the complete opposite: The 27-year-old suitor got a tattoo to symbolize how he'd always "guard and protect" Ali's heart.
Jake Pavelka, Vienna Girardi
Although they may no longer be on the wings of love, The Bachelor exes Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi will be appear together on-camera at least one more time.

There have been harsh exits from The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, but leaving Kasey and his tattoo behind on an Icelandic glacier might just top them all. "We haven't seen him since," jokes host Chris Harrison. With the group heading to Turkey, Harrison tells TVGuide.com about what he says will be "the most talked-about episode in years." Plus: Did Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi's split surprise him?
TVGuide.com: I have to ask: Were you surprised to hear that last season's couple, Jake and Vienna, broke up?
Chris Harrison: I ...
Cheers to The Bachelorette's Ali Fedotowsky for cutting screwy Kasey loose.
It may have been hard to tell what the mush-mouthed ad exec was saying — even with the subtitles during his love poem! — but there was no mistaking the fact that he's bughouse loony. In a frightening attempt to prove he was there to "guard and protect her heart" (an oft-repeated phrase that no doubt launched a thousand drinking games), Kasey got a tattoo of a heart with a shield and 11 studs, representing the 11 studs who were chasing after her. (Ew.)...
