DWTS only took weeks to drive a wedge between Nick Viall & Vanessa Grimaldi

Considering how they acted toward each other on The Bachelor and especially during "After the Final Rose," is anyone surprised that the rumors are saying Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi are hitting snags in their relationship?

Their introduction after the finale may have been the most awkward we've ever seen. They were noticeably cold toward each other, they couldn't seem to agree on anything. It would probably help them to have some time to be a normal couple off TV cameras, but Viall went straight from The Bachelor to Dancing with the Stars, so that wasn't an option. And a source close to the couple told Us Weekly that DWTS is a big part of the wedge that's forming between Viall and Grimaldi.

Grimaldi is "having a hard time," the source said, adding, "Nick rehearses a lot. They fight about it."

She also apparently isn't down with sharing the spotlight, the insider said.

"Vanessa's not used to the attention being mostly on Nick," the source explained. "It's taking a toll."

Even though Viall and Grimaldi are living together in Los Angeles while Viall films DWTS, they haven't started planning their wedding.

"No, no," Viall told Us Weekly when asked about it. "Like Vanessa and I have said, it's too early for us right now. We're still just doing a lot of new things together."

In the meantime, they're working on immigration, which is its own stressor for the relationship.

"She's living with me," Viall said. "But obviously we're still working through the visa stuff, so she may have to pop back to Montreal at some point. While we're in L.A., we're living together."
