Are Vinny Ventiera and Izzy Goodkind dating again? That’s what Bachelor in Paradise 2016 fans are wondering after Vinny and Izzy packed on the PDA during their recent flight to NYC. But whether they’re back together or not, it’s clear the BIP 3 couple is still close.
Izzy and Vinny told TMZ they were just “friends.” They could “talk about things” on the flight they were taking and they had planned to take the flight together.
But they got very cozy during their flight from L.A. to NYC on Wednesday. Sources told TMZ that Izzy and Vinny “couldn’t keep their hands off each other.” And Izzy even fell asleep on Vinny’s lap at one point. So are they dating or just friends?
Vinny and Izzy’s behavior seems all the more shocking because they went through such an emotional breakup on BIP 3. Izzy and Vinny were one of the strongest couples on the show. But Izzy was immediately attracted to Brett Melnick when he showed up. She told Vinny that she was attracted to Brett and was having doubts about their relationship. So they split and a devastated Vinny went home.
“Waking up this morning was not easy, I felt crushed. I don’t know if I was misled committing so much to Izzy and I’s relationship over the last few weeks,” Vinny said on BIP 2016. “It is what I wanted but apparently it is not what she wanted. I don’t want to sit around and wait for her so I can be second best.”
Vinny then got to confront Izzy on After Paradise. It was clear how hurt Vinny still was. He had difficulty watching the breakup clips from BIP 3. Izzy was very apologetic and talked about what a great guy Vinny is. But she said their breakup was less about Brett and more about her doubts with their relationship. Vinny’s mom also appeared on After Paradise via satellite and talked about what a horrible mistake Izzy had made.
And when Michelle Collins asked if they’d get back together, Vinny said, “Izzy’s a great person. We got along great, but the way that she handled that situation – what’s stopping something like that from happening in the future? I don’t want someone to walk by, catch her interest and all of a sudden she wants to be with him.”
Still you can’t ignore the evidence. Izzy and Vinny looked very cozy on that plane. And Vinny has been defending Izzy online. Bachelor in Paradise 3 fans have been bashing Izzy since she dumped Vinny. But Vinny wrote, “Thank u for the support but I won’t tolerate ppl bullying Izzy. We are real people & I know some of these comments would be hurtful to her.”
