charlie oconnel sarah brice 320 'Bachelor' Charlie O'Connell splits from Sarah BriceAnother “Bachelor” couple bites the dust. Charlie O’Connell has called it quits with his chosen lady love Sarah Brice from Season 7 of the popular ABC dating show.

O’Connell tells People, “Sarah and I actually just broke up … I think it was a mutual break-up. The thing is that we dated for five
years … and [were] just arguing over the same things and stuff like
that. And then eventually you’ve got to go your separate ways.”

This is actually the second break-up for the couple. They went their separate ways back in 2007 but later reunited and were featured as one of the “Bachelor” franchise couples during the March 8 broadcast of Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney’s wedding. HIlariously, O’Connell kept talking about buying a house, while Sarah kept reiterating not until she had a ring on her finger.

Guess that didn’t work out for them. That brings the “Bachelor”/”Bachelorette” couples up to a grand total of five and a half — Jason-Molly, Jake-Vienna, Ed-Jillian, Trista-Ryan, Tara-John and DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano, who is the brother of Michael Stagliano, one of the Bachelors from Jillian’s season. Hence the “half.”

If you were confused as who Tara and John are, they are a recently engaged couple that met at one of the many “Bachelor”/”Bachelorette” reunions. Tara Durr, 29, is a real estate agent ousted the first night of Lorenzo Borghese’s season and John Presser, 30, is a pharmaceutical company marketer who was ousted the first night of Jillian’s season. So we supposed that counts too.

So another “Bachelor” couple is dunzo. But what does this mean for their reality show “When Charlie Met Sarah?” And will either of them be competing on the new spin-off “Bachelor Pad?” So many questions.
