After last week’s (sad? surprising? inevitable?) announcement that ex-Bachelorette Deanna Pappas broke off her engagement with Jesse Csincsak, it seemed that all couples who meet on the reality show are doomed (with the exception of Trista and Ryan, obvs).

Well, ladies and gents, looks like we can all believe in showmances true love again: word is Charlie O’Connell (as in Jerry’s little brother and Bachelor No. 7) and Sarah Brice, whom he offered the token final rose to back in 2005, are back together after they’d broken up last year. “I don’t want to jinx it,” Charlie said in an interview. “But it’s going great. We are taking it slow and not taking each other for granted this time. The future looks good!”

[Insert ABC’s mad rush to coax Charlie and Sarah into the slot Deanna and Jesse were so going to use to televise their vows here.]

So, PopWatchers, what say you about this Bachelor news? Does this make you happy? Do you think Jerry O’Connell holds any influence over Charlie (he’s going to be a daddy soon!)? Or are you over it already?
