While I was a definite EJami fan, I still am more in favor of EJ with Nicole. Yes, they didn’t have the same chemistry as he had with Sami but I think story wise, they are a much better pairing.
It looks like they are now going to throw Arianna at him which would probably be okay but would preclude Nicole getting back with him again when she returns from her maternity leave. I am kind of disappointed in that. I’m sure EJ and Arianna will have sparks (EJ would have sparks with Susan Boyle!) but I’m still a confirmed EJ/Nicole fan.
