So much Bachelor gossip, so little time!

Well, that's not quite true. With two hours of ABC airtime every week and the wonders of social media, there's plenty of time for bad-mouthed Bachelor contestants to get their stories out.

And Vienna Girardi and Justin 'Rated R' Rego are doing just that. Below, check out each of their defenses against their recent Bachelor scandals. Do the stories hold up?

Item One: Vienna Determined to "Have a Voice"
This upcoming Monday, Chris Harrison will take a break from announcing "There's only one rose left" to sit down with Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi for their first and only interview together about their break-up. In this sneak peek of the sit-down, Chris Harrison asks Vienna why she ran to the tabloids and revealed private (and weird and sad) details about her relationship with Jake. (Which we've conveniently documented in this He Said/She Said infographic.) Here's what she has to say:

What do you think, Bachelor fans? Is that a good enough excuse for spilling sex details to a tabloid?

If you're not tuning in to find out which guys earn the right to introduce Ali to their families, be sure to tune in to The Bachelorette on Monday, July 5 to hear Jake's response and see the rest of this tense interview.

Yesterday, Justin 'Rated R' Rego, whom Ali confronted and kicked off the show this past Monday when his girlfriend of two years called her and revealed Rego's ulterior motives, released this statement of innocence on his Facebook fan page. The highlights of Justin's self-defense:

"I would like to say that I was not in a relationship before I went on the show and I am still single now."

"As much as people would like to believe that I had no friends on the show and I had nothing but conflict with the other guys in the house, that is totally not the case. I have nothing but positive things to say about ALL the guys, including Kasey, Jonathan (The Weatherman), Craig R and Craig M."
" ... the voice mail messages that were played during my exit from the show on Monday night. I left those messages when I was very confused and I was disgusted to hear messages with such private and personal content! [...] Those messages were actually left after I told producers that I wanted OFF THE SHOW in Iceland. [...] I no longer wanted to be a part of the show when we were in Iceland and wanted to get on the first plane home to Toronto!"

"My Mom informed me that I should call Jessica because there was a lot going on back in Toronto and that Jessica was contacted by Producers of the show. [...] the Producers that were saying "trust me I'm your friend" on the show were the same people that were trying to provoke and encourage this scandal to be something it wasn't."

"Jessica was there for me when I needed someone to help me out. [...] For the first time I felt that Jessica was showing me the characteristics of someone I would want to spend the rest of my life with. Unfortunately now after I have learned everything that has happened, I have reason to believe that there was a second motive to her positive behavior before I left to film The Bachelorette. I no longer have any contact with Jessica, nor do I want her in my life in any way."

Due to the Producers of ABC's The Bachelorette wanting this scandal created at the expense of my character, I will not be attending The Men Tell All. I will not give the producers of this show the opportunity to have the chance of editing me to their liking once again."

Again, Bachelor fans--does Justin's defense hold up? If he wanted to leave the show so badly, why hadn't he done so already? And why did his messages include statements to Jessica like "I want you to be my wife"? And what about that other girlfriend? And, finally ... do you even care anymore?
