Eat your heart out Jason! Melissa has clearly moved on as she shows of her new boyfriend Tye Strickland at a red carpet event this week.
The new couple walked their first red carpet together at Us Weekly’s Hot Hollywood party Wednesday. The two walked hand in hand as Melissa was being honored for her new glam style since her breakup with Jason. “I feel like I am a normal girl in L.A. now!” said Melissa who was also spotted practicing some moves with her DWTS partner Tony Dovolani in their booth throughout the night. “It’s weird. It’s awesome. It’s so surreal.”
Kudos to Melissa as Ty seems to be a definite upgrade from Jason.

Former Bachelorette star Jen Schefft is currently planning her summer wedding to fellow Chicagoan Joe Waterman. Jen was previously engaged to Andrew Firestone on the third season of the Bachelor. Shewas recently laid off her job and she talks to US about her upcoming wedding and why she doesn’t want to spend a fortune.
“I wanted to be considerate of a price,” Schefft says. “I’m not going to wear a $20,000, or even a $10,000 dress. I just don’t think it’s worth it for one day. She goes on to add, “However, I’d rather save in other areas and get the dress that I really, really want.”
Is the Bachelor curse about to strike again? Seems like it. According to a new report, Jason and Molly are on the verge of breaking up! And the break up could be happening as early as this weekend.
According to a close friend, Molly Malaney, 24, is no longer enamored with Jason – and is considering breaking up with him over Easter weekend, when the two plan to meet up in his home city of Seattle. A Molly and Jason split would bring the Bachelor tally to an incredible 0 – 13! With the Bachelorette TristaSutter being the only one to find success on the show.
The friend goes on to say, “The more she sees Jason, the less she likes him.” Supposedly Molly doesn’t trust Jason after the way he dumped Melissa nationally. Plus she also feels she was his second choice. Only time will tell if this report is actually true.
The Bachelorette alum Trista Sutter and her husband Ryan welcomed their second baby this past Friday.

This is the second child for the couple who wed in 2003 after meeting on the ABC’s first season of The Bachelorette the previous year. They are also parents to a son, Maxwell Alston Sutter, a.k.a. Max Sutter who will be two years old in July. Congrats to the new parents.
The Bachelor’s 2nd runner up Jillian Harris is currently filming The Bachelorette and is about halfway through filming. The filming began just 4 weeks after the shocking/infamous “After The Final Rose” episode.
Jillian’s mom Peggy states, “It was a first, what happened with Jason, and I think it will make her more aware. What she learned was to be really careful when choosing. It will put more pressure on her.” The Canadian Bachelorette will have a pool of 25 men to pick from. The Bachelorette is set to premier on ABC next month.
Melissa is on the cover of this week’s People Magazine and she opens up about her heartbreak, and new found celebrity.
On meeting American Idol Judge Randy Jackson – “He was like, ‘Heeeeeeey, how are you?” And, then, of course, it happened: Jackson pulled her into a big bear hug. “Just three months ago I was on the other side, I am so not a celebrity.”
On getting over her heartbreak – Melissa tells People she intended to spend months getting over her Bachelor heartbreak. “I go through stages, I will shut down and lock myself in my room. And then I’ll get to the point where I can’t be by myself and I have to be around other people all the time. Otherwise I’ll drive myself nuts crying. I cry it out. Then one day I wake up and go, I’m okay.”
More of Melissa’s interview can be seen in this week’s People magazine issue.
A month after Jason Mesnick did the unthinkable by dumping his fiance – Melissa Rycroft on national television, people continue to have strong opinions on his actions. Ex Bachelor Matt Grant recently spoke out and says Jason’s decision was not smart.
Matt told People, “This guy kind of committed suicide. He’s a nice man. I’ve met him quite a few times. But I think he should have gone about it differently.” We couldn’t agree more with Matt. Why any man would think it’s okay to dump your fiance in front of the world is beyond us.
Matt however gives credit to Jason for owning up to his mistake. “Ultimately, he had the [guts] to say, ‘I screwed up.”
Matt is now dating his publicist Sarah Robarts. He ended his relationship with his bachelor pick and fiance Shayne Dahl Lamas last year.
