You ever heard the saying, "The apple doesn't fall far from the tree"? Certainly that applies in ths case. Skanky as Vienna is it is hard to believe, but her mother out-skanks her.
Vienna's mother is what we in Florida refer to as, "Redneck Trailer Trash". She lives in a broken-down trailer on the side of a busy rural highway outside of Geneva, Florida. To make money she sells boiled peanuts. The National Enquirer did a story and I believe it to be true, considering the area and the types of business along Highway 46.
Here is the text from the National Enquirer's story.
Bachelor Jake Pavelka is in for a big surprise when he meets his future mother-in-law!
Tina Scott, 41, mom of the show's resident vixen Vienna Girardi, 23, - who got the final rose - is a marijuana-smoking, trailer-living blonde who ekes out a living selling boiled peanuts on the side of a Florida highway.
"Tina loves to smoke weed and drink Mountain Dew. And her friends are a bunch of scraggly men who sit around near the peanut stand smoking pot with her," said a source close to Tina.
"Vienna never mentions her mom on the show. Sure, she's embarrassed by what she does, but there's another reason - she thinks her mom will make a play for Jake!
"And if Jake visits her mother, he'll be surprised to find out he'll be sleeping on the sofa in her double-wide trailer.
"Tina will surely give him all the free peanuts he wants. It's going to be a shock for Jake.
"Marrying Vienna could destroy his clean-cut image - especially with a pot-smoking mother-in-law like Tina."
Tina divorced Vienna's dad, Vinnie Girardi, and married Paul Scott, a sometime handyman. The couple lives in a dilapidated trailer behind Tina's ramshackle peanut stand, located along Highway 46 in Geneva, Fla.
Tina sells plain and Cajun-flavored peanuts, along with Mountain Dew and other soft drinks. Taped to the stand is a local newspaper article about Vienna being a contestant on The Bachelor.
When asked by The ENQUIRER why Vienna has never mentioned her on The Bachelor, Tina said: "My daughter is not intrigued by what I do. Not every daughter's mom sells peanuts by the side of the road."
