‘The Bachelor’: Sean Lowe blasts ridiculous ‘Dancing with the Stars’ romance rumors

Sean LoweMrs. Carter: We all knew this was coming, media just loves to stir up trouble when there isn’t any.

When you make so much of your private life public, it’s hardly shocking at all that the tabloids are going to latch onto anything that they can see. They see Sean dancing with Peta Murgatroyd  on “Dancing with the Stars” 16 while his fiancee Catherine Giudici is sitting on the sidelines, so they are of course going to write about a possible romance brewing between Sean and Peta regardless of whether or not it is true. We don’t even feel like in some ways we need to dignify this, but since Sean spoke out about it, we might as well share what he had to say.

The following comes to us via a chat with Celebuzz:

“I don’t go out and browse the [gossip] magazines. But I see stuff and people post it on Twitter and they’re always asking me ‘is this true?’ The fact of the matter is if you read [it] in the tabloids, it’s not true. Catherine and I are doing great.”

To Sean’s credit, he has tried about as hard as any person can to keep the fire of romance going as a way to try and deal with much of the ridiculous gossip. He has openly mocked the rumors, shown affection for Catherine online, and shared countless photos of him together with her. This feels far different than Jake Pavelka’s relationship with Vienna Girardi, which was seemingly starting to fall apart while they were on “Dancing with the Stars” together.

Murgatroyd ultimately has plenty of tabloid relationship gossip to deal with on her own, given that she was previously attached to fellow pro Maksim Chmerkovskiy.
