Regis Philbin and Kelly Ripa had a special Halloween episode on Friday’s Live with Regis and Kelly, during which they spoofed some stars of reality television and pop culture.
Above is a pretty hilarious video of the two spoofing the now infamous public breakup between The Bachelor’sJason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft. Jason famously dumped Melissa during the After The Rose special. Both Jason and Melissa are now both happily engaged to other people.
The new season of The Bachelor only began filming weeks ago, but Jake Pavelkaalready believes he has met his future wife on the reality dating series.
Jake reveals to AccessHollywood during a group date for the show, “She is in Los Angeles right now. I have met Mrs. Pavelka.” The 31-year-old Texan says he has not officially chosen the woman he’ll marry yet, but believes she is among the 25 hopefuls currently vying for his love.
AccessHollywood reveals there will be three single mothers amongst the women competing, whom Jake calls, “The prettiest cast I have ever seen on the show.” As for whether Jake has any jitters about picking the wrong woman, reminiscence to whatJason Mesnick did on his season, Jakes reveals he has no fears.
“It doesn’t scare me. I am going to let my heart lead,” he says. ‘I think Jason Mesnick in the end wound up with the right decision. I understand they are engaged. I bumped into Molly a couple of weeks ago in the airport and she is just giddy over that guy. So he is walking on a good path.”
The new season of “The Bachelor” returns January 2010.
The coupon discusses their engagement details, as well as the hardships they had to go through in their relationship. Jason famously dumped his former fiance, Melissa Rycroft, on national television to begin dating Molly.
When asked why he dumped Melissa, Jason reveals, “Melissa is a great girl, but there wasn’t any chemistry,” he admits. “So I broke up with her after Christmas, about a month after we wrapped.”
Jason admits the controversial After the Final Rosetaping wasn’t the ideal time or place to try to rekindle things with Molly and win her back. “Obviously, I didn’t want it all on TV, but I had to take the chance if it meant getting her back. I’d rather have picked up the phone, trust me!”
Jason goes on to reveal a somewhat surprising tidbit when he says Molly gave up being the next Bachelorette to be with him. He tells US that show producers — a week after his ill-fated proposal to Melissa — “kept asking me if I thought Molly would make a good Bachelorette.”
He however realized he was “not willing to let Molly go on TV and have 25 guys fight over her.” If Jason’s story is to be believed, this would mean Jillian Harris was the third choice to be the Bachelorette, as Melissa also declined an opportunity to do the show.
Bachelorette couple, Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski, were spotted on Wednesday shopping at the new Victoria’s Secret store on Chicago’s Michigan Avenue. Jillian says, even though Ed isn’t complaining, she needs to add more to her lingerie collection.
According to People.com, both Ed and Jillian say the sexiest way to go is with “no panties” and “no bras”. A little too much information for a couple who have been in the spotlight for Ed’s alleged cheating.
The couple, who recently moved in together, couldn’t wait to talk about newly engaged Molly Malaney and her beau Jason Mesnick. Jason proposed to Molly in New Zealand. “We had no idea they got engaged and we just literally talked to them yesterday,” Harris said, adding that they just found out. “They sent us a picture of them in New Zealand and they looked so happy … I guess I never thought about it, but them being in New Zealand would be the best time to do it. It all makes sense!”
Jillian believes the couple are “awesome together,” despite all the drama that surrounded their relationship initially. Jillian reveals that the four of them hung out in Vancouver and she and Ed look forward to future outings with Jason and Molly.
What does Jillian think of Jake Pavelka as the new Bachelor?
Jillian says, it’s akward seeing him date other women since he was one of my suitors. Nevertheless, she is thrilled that he may find his mate.
“I think he’s going to make an interesting Bachelor,” Jillian said. “He’s definitely got a lot of emotion so I think he’ll be very fun to watch.”
Jason asked Molly to marry him marry him in New Zealand on Monday night reports People magazine. This is Jason’s second engagement this year as he became notorious for dumping his then fiance, Melissa Rycroft, on national television to begin dating Molly.
The two have been maintaining a long-distance relationship as he lives in Seattle, and she lives in Milwaukee. A source close to the couple reveals Jason may have returned to the site of his ill-fated first choice so “Jason can do what he should have done in the last time he was here, and ask Molly to marry him.” New Zealand was the same location he had asked Melissa to marry him.
Melissa is also engaged to be married to her fiance, Tye Strickland. Seems to be a happy ending for all parties involved. Congrats to Jason and Molly.
UPDATE: A photo of Molly’s engagement ring is below —
“I do hope it works out for them; the odds are against them,” she toldUsmagazine at the Madison & Mulholland charity suite in West Hollywood over the weekend.
“Supposedly Jillan and Ed are head over heels in love. I haven’t hung out with them, but we have mutual friends, and they say they are just crazy about each other,” she added. “It seems to be working so far.”
It was reported that Ed cheated on Jillian with 2 different women during the taping of The Bachelorette, and also just 8 days after proposing to her.
This news did not surprise DeAnna who says, “I wasn’t an Ed fan while [Jillian] was filming the show.”
“I think some people go on the shows with different intentions and maybe they are not open in the beginning what their intentions are,” she told US, without elaborating. “So in the end, you get duped.”
DeAnna is however a bit more optimistic about Bachelor couple, Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney, who are still together despite the odds. “They are so happy, and I do think that they are going to get married,” said DeAnna. “They really just get each other, and it works for them.”
The Bachelorette’sJillian Harris and fiancé Ed Swiderski appeared on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday. Amidst all the rumors, the duo seems determined to stay together.
“We want everybody to know we are extremely happy and in love,” Ed tells Ellen, so much that the couple packed up Jillian’s home in Vancouver this past weekend and are officially moving in together next week.
“I’m all packed up and ready to go,” the 30-year-old smiled.
Ed attempted to explain away his alleged bad behavior by saying – “In every sense of the word, I was a bachelor before I went on the show, but I am not perfect. I am a human being.”
Ed goes on to say that he and Jillian have their struggles like any normal relationship and he is sure that fans of “The Bachelorette” would love to know the details, but there are things that should be kept private.
Ed also talked about the two women who started the “cheating allegation” controversy about him in the media. He says, “I don’t know what motivates someone to do something like that. I did have dialogue with these women and I know them pretty well. I don’t know what caused that.”
In other news, Jillian dished to E! News on Thursday at the Rosa Cha show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC. Interestingly, Ed was unable to attend the event with her. Oddly enough, It was Ed’s idea for Jillian to be accompanied by Mike Steinberg, New York baseball camp owner that was eliminated in episode four of The Bachelorette.
The new issue of UsWeekly reportsThe Bachelor star, 26, is set to wed insurance-agent beau Tye on Dec. 12.
“We aren’t doing much. I think small, we plan small,” says Melissa, who got engaged less than six months after being jilted in January by then fiance & Bachelor star, Jason Mesnick. “But whether it’s going to turn out the way we have it in our minds, I don’t know!”
UsWeekly is also reporting that Melissa has invited her former Bachelor costars, Jillian Harris and Naomi Crespo. Her former Dancing With the Stars partner Tony Dovolani, also scored an invite.
