The Bachelor’s Jason Mesnick refuses to be upstaged by his ex fiance, Melissa Ryfroft, as Jason is now saying he and Molly will tie the knot someday. Melissa just got engaged to her beau Tye Strickland this past weekend.
“Things are going great,” Jason said on Good Morning America today, adding that he and Mollly will “absolutely someday” walk down the aisle.
According to Molly, she is also planning to move from Milwaukee to Seattle to be closer to her him. “We’re very happy,” she says. “We’re doing the distance thing right now.”
Molly also says “it’s been great” getting to know Jason’s 4-year-old son, Ty. The family recently went on a vacation to Turks and Caicos.
Surprised these two are still together despite all the public backlash over the way he treated Melissa, but I guess it’s time we all move past that. So good luck to these two.
It now seems the whole Wes girlfriend mystery has finally been solved or has it? Coming out in Wes’s defense today is the alleged girlfriend mentioned on this week’s episode of The Bachelorette.
Laurel Kagay spoke out to People claimingJillian Harris has nothing to worry about when it comes to Wes two timing her. Laurel claims to have been in shock when she heared her name mentioned during the last episode. “I was like, ‘What?’” Laurel, 29, states. “There was this pause before he said my name — and then he said it quite a few times.”
Laurel, owner of Peach Body Boutique in Austin, Tex., however insists she and Wes are just friends: “I’m absolutely not with Wes, nor would I be if he were going on a show to be with another girl,” she says. “That’s absolutely crazy.”
So why did both Jake and Tanner mention Wes having a girlfriend? “And I think Wes did say something about his ex-girlfriend. Maybe he said he still cares about me or whatever. Maybe he talked a little too much about me, and Jake just blew that into something else.” However, Laurel admits, “We are really good friends and we do go out to lunch together, so I could see how people could think we’re together.” Not sure I’m buying this.
Oh but there’s more to Laurel. She has had her fair share of Bachelors as she is also linked to another famous name in The Bachelor franchise – Brad Womack, you know the bachelor who chose no one on his season finale. According to Laurel, they dated for four years.
She has also dated Collin Evans, who was briefly a contender on The Bachelorette season starring Jen Schefft.
I’m not buying this whole we were just friends thing. Wes seems like the slimey type and I think Jillian should have sent him packing. I believe Jake on this one and do believe Wes came on the show only for the fame because he actually admitted to that on a past episode. So I do not doubt for one second that he was dating this Laurel person while pretending to be there for Jillian. This seems to be his lame attempt to save his so called career as a country singer.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK JILLIAN SHOULD HAVE SENT WES PACKING?
The good news keeps on coming for Melissa Rycroft. The former Bachelor and Dancing With The Stars contestant is now engaged to Dallas insurance agent Tye Strickland.
The two got engaged this weekend. It might seem rather quickly for The Bachelor fans, but the two have actually dated on and off for 2 years. They began dating once again after Jason Mesnick infamously dumped Melissa on national television.
Melissa has since gone on to excel on DWTS, and recently got a job as a correspondent on GMA (Good Morning America).
It seems being dumped by Jason might have been the best thing to ever happen to Melissa. Wondering what Jason is up to nowadays? He and Molly however seem to be making it work. The two were still a couple as of Late May.
DWTS alum, Melissa Rycroft has just landed a new job with ABC’s Good Morning America as a special contributor, reports Usmagazine.
Rycroft, a 26-year-old sales representative and former Dallas cowboy’s cheerleader — will appear on the morning show about eight times during the summer, “bringing lighthearted, uplifting and fun stories to GMA,” says a source.
Remember, Rycroft was famously dumped by Jason Mesnick on ABC’s The Bachelorfinale this past spring. She danced her way as one of the finalist on ABC’s Dancing with the Stars.
After the show ended, she told Us she didn’t have any plans.
“I’m not going to pursue anything right now,” she told Us, “but if things come my way I will look into them. Never say never!”
Following her outstanding performance on DWTS, we knew we haven’t seen or heard the last of Melissa.
Ex Bachelor star Jason Mesnick is finally opening up about his post Bachelor life, and even talks about his ex fiance, Melissa Rycroft‘s success on Dancing With The Stars. He also talks about Jillian Harris doing the Bachelorette.
Jason has pretty much kept a low profile until now. Jason along with his current girlfirend, Molly, opened up to Access Hollywood’sMaria Menounos (pictured above with them) about still feeling some heat over his very bad choice to dump publicly dump Melissa.
“I think the time for me when people have been negative is when like a girl – her boyfriend just broke up with her and they just look at me like it’s my fault,” Jason says “I’m sorry if you feel that way, but it’s not me! It happens every day and it wasn’t me, I promise.”
Jason and Molly claim they have yet to get used to the media spotlight and try their best to stay away from it, “We really stepped away from everything. That’s not why we did the show. That’s not why we did any of this,” says Jason.
And what do they think of Melissa’s being on DWTS? “I haven’t been able to watch, but a lot of people that I work with watch and they said she’s been doing a phenomenal job,” Molly said. “That doesn’t surprise me – she’s a great dancer.”
Jason says he is not surprised at Melissa’s success on the show, “When I found out she was on the show, I said I think she’s going to win it,” he added. “Because I know how passionate she is about dancing. I think it was a great fit.”
When asked if he had any advise for newBachelorette, Jillian Harris, Jason says “She doesn’t need any advice from me. She said that she was always looking for a best friend and I think that’s what she’ll look for and she’ll find.”
With his ex-fiance, Melissa Rycroft, being a front runner for this season’s DWTS, Jason Mesnick took a vacation this past weekend with both his girlfriend Molly, and his son Ty. The trio enjoyed the lovely scenery at the grand opening of the Italian Village at Beaches Turks & Caicos resort.
According to this report, The Ex Bachelor star Jason and Ty arrived on Wednesday, with Molly joining them on Friday. They all left together on Monday (yesterday).
A source reports, “They were on the beach all day Friday building sand castles and making sand angels together. At dinner on Friday night, Ty and Molly were holding hands as she talked him through the buffet line.”
Molly was also seen wearing her birthday gift from Jason which is a diamond “M” necklace.
Former Bachelorettestar Jen Schefft tied the knot this weekend in Chicago with her fiance Joe Waterman. The two got married at the Private Dining Rooms of Spiaggia in Chicago Friday night . Jen was previously engaged to Andrew Firestoneafter winning his season of the Bachelor.
“She looked beautiful,” said a guest who attended the wedding, held in a room overlooking Lake Michigan. “It was a very small wedding but very fun.”
The married couple, Schefft, 32, and Waterman, 35, had met on a blind date in February 2008. “We really get each other,” she told PEOPLE last year. “I guess it’s true things move fast when you meet the right person.” Good luck to the newlyweds.
Another day, another injury for Dancing With The Stars as Melissa Rycroft is the latest star to suffer an injury. The 26-year-old former Bachelor star sat out of last night’s show. Her partner, Tony Dovolani, performed with professional dancer Lacey Schwimmer instead.
The doctors believe Melissa is suffering from a hairline fracture of the ribs. Melissa says, “I hurt my ribs last week doing a difficult move. It was feeling better and then I hurt myself again. I felt a blinding pain shoot down my side, so we decided it would be best to go actually have a doctor check it out.”
Melissa has been touted has one of the front runners to win it all. She was able to rehearse yesterday morning but did not feel well enough to perform for the show. She is expected to make a full recovery soon.
Melissa thanked her fans saying -
“I was doing alright but went to the doc before dress rehearsal for some last minute treatment and ended up having a bad reaction that’s affecting my breathing,” she wrote. “Hopefully (fingers crossed) I’ll be good tomorrow. But thank you for all the love, support and votes! We need it!”
