Everything seems to be finally falling into place for Bachelor alum, Melissa Rycroft. Melissa’s life has made a complete 360 since being dumped publicly by her then fiance, Jason Mesnick, just months ago.
“Tye is my true love,” Melissa, 26, tells PEOPLE in its new issue. These days, Melissa harbors no hard feelings towards her ex, Jason, because the situation brought her to where she is today. “No disrespect [to Jason] at all, but that situation doesn’t compare to where I am now – engaged and happy. It’s a different feeling,” she says.
Tye, 28, also speaks out for the first time about their relationship, “The last six months have not been normal…But we wouldn’t change it because what we had to go through has allowed us to be where we are today. It’s been a blessing in disguise, and I don’t think either of us has ill feelings towards anyone.”
The happy couple will be appearing tomorrow, July 28th, on The Bachelorette: After The Final Rose. I’m certain Melissa has her reservations appearing on this show considering what happened the last time she was on it.
After being photographed with 22 year old girlfriend, Hailey Glassman, and having tabloid reporter, Kate Major, publicly announce their new “relationship,” while quitting her job last week, Jon Gosselin is now publicly breaking his silence.
“At this point … I’m single – per se,” he told PEOPLE this Saturday. “I’m just a regular guy who just wants to have friendship and good times. And I like meeting people.” Translation - I am single and ready to screw anything moving.
It seems Jon and Girlfriend #1, Hailey, have decided to put the breaks on their new romance. Jon says, “She doesn’t like this [craziness]. She loves me for who I am and not for what I do. We are going to chill out for a while and see where it takes us. I’m not looking for anyone.”
And what about Girlfriend #2, Kate? “We are just friends” says Jon.
Jon however wants us to know he has his priorities in order saying, “I’m just trying to concentrate on my family first, second my career. That’s what I have to do.” And will the kids be meeting any of his multiple girlfriends? “I don’t want to introduce anyone to my kids,” he says. “We just have to play it by ear. I don’t know what it’s like to be divorced.”
So you mean to tell me the big idiot Kate Major quit her job and all but ruined her career for nothing? Fortunately for Kate, she can always take solace in the good news that she should have zero problem winning the biggest dumbass of the year award. Her only other major competition is Hailey.
People are still buzzing about the season finale of Soapnet’sSouthern Belles: Lousiville, which revealed Jeff Stovall cheated on his fiance, Shea Johnson. To thicken the plot, the “other woman” just happened to be Louisville Judge, Katie King.
Katie had also appeared on previous episodes of the show due to cast member, Hadley, helping her with her campaign. The good folks at Springston blogspot (a blog about Louisville New & Politics) were able to get the above photo of Katie and Jeff. The picture was allegedly taken on July 10th during a birthday bash Katie threw for someone. Katie took down the pictures, but the Springston blogger was able to save a copy.
I wonder why Katie would take the pictures down if she had nothing to be ashamed of. And is it just me or does Katie look rather aged for being only 29 years old? Katie seems to be a rather controversial figure in the city of Louisville. There are rumors of drug use, as well as a supposed restraining order taken out against her by an ex boyfriend. Interesting.
There are also reports that Katie and Jeff are no longer together.
Reality seems to have finally set in for Kate Gosselin, who eventually took off her wedding band as news about her estranged husband gallivanting with other women can be seen all over the tabloids. Unlike Jon, Kate has taken a more subtle step toward a new life. For the first time, the reality star was photographed without her ring during a coffee run near her Pennsylvania home.
Are you ready for another reality show? Octuplet mother Nadya Suleman has recently signed a contract for a new reality show that will allow each of the children to get paid $250.00 per day. According to the documents, the show will premiere on Sept 1st.
The contracts were filed Friday in a Los Angeles Superior Court, however it requires approval from a judge. The European production company, Eyeworks, previously involved in other shows like “Breaking Bonaduce”, “The Biggest Loser” and is now working with Nadya.
The contract outlines that the kids will collectively earn $125,000 for 36 days of shooting in the first year of production, $75,000 for 21 days in the second year and $50,000 for 14 days in the third year. The contract also states that 15 percent of the gross compensation will be deposited by Eyeworks into a “Coogan Trust Account,” as required by California law. The account will not be accessed until the children turn 18 or become legally emancipated.
Nadya gave birth to Octuplets on Jan. 26, making them the world’s longest surviving octuplets. The public was outraged when they found out the Octuplet mum was receiving public assistance and already had 6 kids. With all the controversy surrounding Nadya, she became a media target and was under scrutiny.
VH1 has released the Supertrailer of the upcoming 2nd season of Real Chance of Love. You can see the official photos of the cast here, as well as personal/”modeling” photos of the ladies here and here.
Real Chance of Love 2: Back in the Saddle premieres Monday, August 3 at 9/8c. Will you be watching?
We see Gretchen Rossi,Lynne Curtin, and newest housewife, Alexis Bellino enjoying their time in Fort Lauderdale.
I’m guessing this might be a preview of what is to come on the show. These three will be a close unit while 40 year old mean girl Tamra Barney and the always classy Vicki Gunvalson will continue to be miserable together. Jeana Keough, who has been confirmed to be returning to the show, will likely continue to be a neutral party as always.
The season finale of Soapnet’sSouthern Belle: Lousville ended tonight with quite a shocker.
We first find out Kellie decided to stay in Louisville rather than moving to Chicago with her boyfriend, Jeff. Kellie decides to end her pattern of depending too much on the men in her life. Was very happy to see Kellie make this choice. Something about Jeff just doesn’t come off right. He seemed a bit cold in my opinion when telling Kelly he did not want to have children with her in the past episodes.
Julie decides to take charge of her life, and asks a younger guy out. The show says they two are still dating. Emily breaks the news of moving to Vegas to her father, who finally gives her his blessing. Hadley finally sees what we all see in Russ and decides to end things with him. We also find out Hadley and Kellie will be working together on Kelly’s new dating business – “Dating Sucks.“
The show definitely saved the best for last when we see a much thinner Shea tearfully talk about her heartbreak. Shea informs us that she found out her fiance, Jeff Stovall, was cheating on her the same week her mother died. To make things worse, Jeff was with the other woman the night her mom was being buried.
This was quite a shocker. Though I had heard the rumors that the engagement was over, I did not expect it to be due to infidelity. The two seemed to be loving together, especially when Shea gave in and agreed to get the big house Jeff wanted.
There is a rumor going around that the woman Jeff cheated with was Katie King. The same Katie that Hadley was campaigning for in earlier episodes. I’m not certain on the accuracy of this. Others are saying Jeff is still with the woman he cheated on Shea with, whomever that might be. I really felt for Shea tonight. Having to bury her mother and cancel her wedding in the same week has to be tough. According to the show, Jeff refused to appear on camera to talk about what happened.
UPDATE – It’s pretty much confirmed that the woman Jeff was cheating with was indeed Katie King. Shea also updated her facebook status last night sarcastically saying “Your Honor Katie King.” Katie is a Judge by the way. Pretty pathetic for someone in Katie’s position to do such a thing.
