desiree hartsock, chris siegfriedHow did you spend your Labor Day? If you are Desiree Hartsock or Chris Siegfried, the only answer is 'desperately in love and totally together and touching each other all the time always.' Whatever the rumor mill might be spouting, Des took to Twitter to let the world know -- she and Chris are totally still on.

Des posted pics of herself and Chris enjoying some volleyball over the long weekend. She also mentioned treating themselves to massages. While it's good to hear that the couple seems to be deeply in smit, it's all a little, well, hard to swallow. Could this be a case of the lady protesting too much?

This season of The Bachelorette was, in a word, gut-wrenching. (Okay, so technically that's two words, but still.) Seeing Des and Chris all lovey-dovey for the cameras can't banish the memory of just how wrecked she was when Brooks Forester decided to call it quits.

There's something to be said for moving on and letting new love heal the wounds left behind by the old ones. Even so, the images of Des weeping in the wake of Brooks shafting her are hard to shake. In the fast-paced compressed reality of The Bachelorette-universe, we worry that Des might push herself to get over Brooks too quickly and inadvertently hurt Chris in the process.

Do you think Des and Chris are the real deal?
