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.
The couple welcomed a baby girl named Blakesley Grace Sutter in Colorado at 1.23 pm on April 3rd. “She’s healthy. Everything is really good,” an exhausted Trista told Life & Style.
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.
The Bachelor’s Melissa Rycroft has been able to catapult her heartbreak into a spot on DWTS, so is Playboy next?
According to a new report, Melissa has been offered $500,000 to show it all in Playboy. Star Magazine reports that Hugh Hefner sent the Bachelor beauty a personal letter asking her to pose, and also inviting her to a dinner at the Playboy mansion to discuss the deal!
A source reveals, “Hef really wants Melissa to do a pictorial because she’s the ultimate girl next door.” Melissa however could not pose now because it would go against her ABC contract which does now allow her to pose nude while appearing on Dancing With The Stars. The contract also disallows her from posing nude until 3 months after the show ends.
What do you think about this story? Should Melissa pose for Playboy?
The Bachelor’s producer Mike Fleiss is partnering up with FOX network to create an all new dating show for plus sized women. The show will be titled “More To Love.” “For six years it’s been skinny-minis and good-looking bachelors, and that’s not what the dating world looks like,” Fox president of alternative Mike Darnell said. “Why don’t real women — the women who watch these shows, for the most part — have a chance to find love too?”
The show will have a similar format to “Bachelor,” where a group of woman compete for one man (producers describe him as a “Kevin James-type”). Fleiss had previously teamed up with FOX network and helped create the controversial “Who Wants to Marry a Multi-Millionaire?” in 2000.
Fleiss says, “Most of the country isn’t a Size 2, It’s the dating show for the rest of us.” The show is currently casting. No premier date has been set yet.
