Despite cheating allegations and rumors of a break up, newly engaged Bachelorette couple Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski are still together.

An insider told In Touch Weekly that both Ed and Jillian plan to stay engaged and work through the problems, specifically the cheating allegations. “When Jillian accepted Ed’s proposal, she was starting to fall in love,” the magazine reports.

The insider continues, saying it wasn’t until after accepting the $60,000 ring that Jillian started to hear rumors that Ed might have kept company with a past girlfriend, among others.

A lot of people are wondering why Jillian has agreed to stay with Ed despite all the evidence pointing to him cheating. Former Bachelorette contestant, DeAnna Pappas believes money might be a factor.

“Hours after my finale, I was bombarded with offers for endorsements, special appearances and more,” Pappas told In Touch. “But the catch was they wanted both me and my fiancé (Jesse Csincsak).”

Four months following the final rose ceremony and proposal, DeAnna and Jesse broke up. Both were offered $10,000 to appear at a nightclub and $5,000 to appear at a mall.

“If Jesse and I stayed together, we could have easily cashed in,” Pappas said. “But for me, it felt like selling out.”

UPDATE – Edited to add that ABC paid the first Bachelorette, Trista Rehn and husband Ryan Sutter, $1 million to televise their wedding back in 2003.  So Jillian and Ed making it down the aisle could mean big bucks for the couple.

Megan Wants A Millionaire Ryan Jenkins

VH1 is known for bringing us strippers, “models,” and sometimes pornstars when it comes to their dating shows, but could murderer now be included in that category?

TMZ is reporting Ryan Alexander Jenkins, one of the contestants of Megan Wants A Millionaire, is wanted as a person of interest in the murder of playboy representative, Jasmine Fiore. Jasmine was found dead in a trash bin in Buena Park last Saturday morning. She was first reported missing by Ryan on Saturday night.

The story takes an interesting twist as Ryan and Jasmine were actually married. According to TMZ, Ryan married Jasmine just 2 days after meeting her at a Las Vegas strip club earlier this year. It is reported that Ryan married Jasmine shortly after being eliminated from Megan Wants A Millionaire — he was one of the finalists.

In an interview with TMZ, Megan Hauserman said Jenkins was smart, nice and she is shocked by the turn of events.

As of now, Ryan remains at large. His lawyer contacted TMZ, saying Ryan plans on meeting with authorities in the near future.
