The Bachelorette’s Jillian 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.

Melissa Rycroft with fiance Tye Strickland

Melissa Rycroft has set a wedding date just months after announcing her engagement to fiance, Tye Strickland.

The new issue of UsWeekly reports The 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.

Melissa Rycroft is speaking out on behalf of her buddy and former Bachelor castmate, Jillian Harris. Despite her fiance’s alleged cheating, Jillian and Ed are doing fine, says Melissa.

“She is doing really well,” Melissa told Usmagazine Wednesday at a charity event in L.A. “Her and Ed are happy, and I know she is going to become a U.S. citizen. She’s moving to Chicago.”

“You know, granted it’s not my business to comment, but Jillian’s real life is fantastic,” continued Melissa.  When asked if she believes Jillian and Ed will still wed, Melissa says, “I absolutely do…I know they love each other, and I know they are planning a wedding, and I know she wants to marry him. I hope it works out for them.”

In the meantime, Melissa continues to plan her wedding to fiance, Tye Strickland.

In just three weeks after Us Weekly reported that Ed Swiderski had two girlfriends when he proposed to Jillian Harris on The Bachelorette, his complete email exchanges with Lindsey Johnson and Bethany Steffen are now online.

RealitySteve.com blogger has revealed the full contents of the multiple emails that took place between Ed and his girlfriends, right before and during the filming of the Bachelorette.

One of the most shocking comments made by Ed came 3 weeks before he left to film the show. Ed assured then girlfriend, Bethany, not to worry. “You worry too much!” he wrote. “You know I never took this thing seriously. In addition, I’ve let the director know that I would be doing the show for the wrong reasons as I am not, in any way, attracted to the chick.”

More of the emails are revealed below -

Subject: RE:

Babe: this is great email. And I appreciate it.

You worry too much! Let’s talk about it in person ok?

You know I never took this thing seriously. In addition, I’ve let the Director know that I would be doing the show for the wrong reasons as I am not, in any way, attracted to the chick.

It’s still about a 25% chance of me going, though it’s seriously the last thing I’m thinking about right now…

The-Bachelorette-Jillian-and-Ed

The Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris continues to laugh of rumors of her fiance, Ed Swiderski‘s infidelities. When asked about the cheating allegations, Jillian delcares her love for Ed telling OK Magazine, “We have not even come close [to splitting].”

The couple is currently enjoying some time together in Canada. They both attended Jillian’s cousin wedding this weekend. You can see photos of the wedding here.

“We’ve got a Jet Ski, so we’ve been spending lots of time on the lake,” says Jillian, who is still planning to move to Ed’s home city of Chicago in September.

Jillian’s friends also back her decision to stay with Ed, “Jill was aware that there was a risk of this kind of tabloid attention when she got involved in the show,” reasons Shannon Long, who speaks with Jillian every day.

It was reported a few days ago that money might be a motivation for Jillian and Ed staying together.

If you recall, the first Bachelorette Trista Rehn and then fiance, Ryan Stutter, got paid the amount of $1 million to have their wedding televised back in 2003. There’s obviously a huge amount of money at stake if Jillian and Ed make it down the aisle.

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.

The last seasons of both The Bachelor and Bachelorette have both ended with a bang, as Bachelorette winner Ed Swiderski seems to be sleeping with everyone including his fiancé Jillian Harris and two ex-girlfriends – Bethany Steffen and Lindsey Johnson. Despite all the cheating accusations surrounding Ed and Jillian, the Bachelor producers are already casting for the next season of the Bachelor.

There have been rumors that Jake Pavelka, Reid Rosenthal or Kiptyn Locke will likely be the next Bachelor. These three are all fan favorites from this season of The Bachelorette. The Bachelor Producer, Mike Fleiss, has now confirmed one of the three will be the next Bachelor to Entertainment Tonight. “When the new season of The Bachelor premieres, look for Reid, Kiptyn or Jake to be handing out the red roses,” says Fleiss.

While the producers have yet to announce when the next Bachelor will be revealed, we can definitely continue to count on both Ed and Jillian to keep us occupied with the cheating/break up allegations.

According to our polls, you all want Reid to be the next Bachelor. I guess we will wait and see.

Bachelorette_US_Weekly_magazine_cover

The latest issue US Weekly brings us another not so flattering cover story for Jillian Harris and her fiance, Ed Swiderski. The issue focuses on how Ed was able to trick and manipulate Jillian, while juggling his two other girlfriends.

A few of The Bachelorette contestants tell US Weekly they heard Ed talk about having a girlfriend back home. Wes Hayden is one of the men speaking out, and he would know a thing or two this topic, considering he was accused of having a girlfriend while on the show as well. Below are some of what the guys are saying -

Wes Hayden – “Dave [Good] and I both remember Ed saying he had a girlfriend,” says Hayden, who also was accused of having a girlfriend while on the show. “But we are not the kind who are going to run our mouths.”

Michael Stagliano – “There was definitely something, I can’t put my finger on it, where I did think, I’m not going to be best friends with this guy. Ed’s a shady character.”

Jesse Kovacs – Bachelorette contestants are required to relinquish cellphones and laptops on the show to keep interaction lively among the participants. But because of Ed’s job as a Microsoft consultant, he “had an agreement” to keep both “because it was imperative for him to have access for work.”

Reid Rosenthal – Says some contestants knew Ed was bad news and “didn’t care to hang out with him.”

The cover story also claims Reid Rosenthal still has feelings for Jillian. Nothing will likely come from that as Reid is the front runner to become the new Bachelor, and Jillian has no plans of ending things with Ed.
