The Bachelor’s Jason Mesnick reveals in an all new interview that he and Molly are happy together. Good to see that whole dumping his ex fiance on national television thingy has not put a dent in their relationship.
Jason tells People, they two continue to visit each other and are heading in the right direction in their relationship. Molly enjoys cooking for Jason, and he is enjoying getting to know her friends and family.
According to the happy couple, their biggest challenge is the distance between them. Molly says she plans on flying to Seatle in a few weeks to visit both Jason and Ty, “I’m excited to just spend some time with Ty outside of the cameras and production.”
This week’s dancing with the stars was a week of good dances and high scores! A lot of the stars continued to show improvement. Melissa Rycroft, Shawn Johnson and Gilles Marini had a triple tie for the top score with each receiving a 27. Not sure if that had ever happened in the dancing history of DWTS.
Eliminations were last night and Denise Richards found herself in the bottom two along with Holly Madison. Yes we’re also wondering how Steve Wozniak escaped the bottom two, perhaps votewoz.com might explain it.
Denise found herself getting the axe, we take it the fans have yet to get over that whole sleeping with your bestfriend’s husband fiasco that occured a while back with Heather Locklear & Richie Sambora. Better luck next time Denise!
Best Dance of the week – Gilles and Cheryl
Most improved this week – David and Kym
Melissa and Gilles continue to be the two favorites to win the season.
The 2 lowest scores of the night once again went to Steve-O and Steve Wozniak.
Here are the scores for this week –
Gilles and Cheryl: 27
Melissa and Tony: 27
Shawn and Mark: 27
Lil’ Kim and Derek: 25
David and Kym: 24
Chuck and Julianne: 23
Ty and Chelsie: 23
Lawrence and Edyta: 20
Holly and Dmitry: 17
Denise and Maksim: 16
Steve-O and Lacey: 15
Ever wondered how much the Celebs get paid to be on Dancing With The Stars? Well we now have that answer! All the stars get paid the amount of $200,000 for the season. The $200,000 is paid whether or not the stars get voted off. So Belinda Carlisle , the first star voted off this season would still get that amount.
The winner then receives a $100,000 bonus with the 2nd and 3rd runner ups receiving smaller bonuses as well.
In a bit of a surprising news, The Bachelor’s Melissa Rycroft believes Dancing With The Stars’s new format is much tougher than The Bachelor and those “shocking” rose ceremonies.
Melissa spoke to US Weekly this week and states that the new DWTS elimination dance format is definitely more nerve racking. Melissa also goes on to say that she does not feel safe even though she and her partner Tony Dovonali have been racking up some of the highest scores on the show. “It’s fair to say nobody’s safe, no matter how high your scores are!”
For some odd reason, we think Melissa will be safe for a very long time on DWTS.
Seems The Bachelor’s Melissa is moving on quite well since dodging the Jason bullet (good luck with him Molly!). She is on the new cover of US Weekly magazine and the mag reports Melissa now has a new man in her life named Ty.
The 25 year old bachelorette tells US, “We’ve been really good friends, but the timing was never right. With all this going on, he’s my support system. It’s funny how things happen.”
Melissa is also riding high on her new Dancing With The Stars gig scoring the second highest score on the show’s debut with only 2 days of practice, earning her a standing O!
Dancing With The Stars eight season premiered last night and it was not a let down! The show began with rapper Lil Kim doing the cha cha and ended with The Bachelor castoff Melissa Rycroft doing the waltz, and doing a great job at it! Melissa finished the night the 2nd highest score. You couldn’t help but yell “Go Melissa!” the minute she came on the screen!
The best score of the night went to Sex and The City Movie hunk Gilles Marini and his partner Cheryl Burke as they definitely had the sexiest dance of the night! In 3rd place was Lil Kim and her partner Derek Hough. Below are the night’s full scores as well as pictures from last night.
Gilles and Cheryl: 24
Shawn and Mark: 23
Melissa and Tony: 23
Lil Kim and Derek: 21
Chuck and Julianne: 20
David and Kym: 19
Denise and Maksim: 18
Holly and Dmitry: 18
Belinda and Jonathan: 17
Steve-O and Lacey: 17
Lawrence and Edyta: 16
Ty and Chelsie: 14
Steve and Karina: 13
Ex Bachelor star Andrew Firestone spoke to USWeekly and had some not so nice things to say about Jason Mesnick. Andrew accused Jason of being fake and referred to him as an “ass.”
Andrew states, “If he didn’t have his mind made up, don’t do anything, Don’t feel that you are so pressured into having to propose or make a decision. There’s no reason that you have to do anything, especially if you’re so torn that you’re crying like a little girl on that balcony.”
Andrew went on to say that he believed the whole public dumping fiasco by Jason was calculated by him. He says Jason was acting like as ass. “I thought it was super shady that Jason has one girl on and then he did the squirmy, puppy dog kind of thing, Melissa goes walking off and then the other girl comes on, and he’s sheepish and making out with her. Come on” Firestone says.
Seems like Andrew has a good read on Jason. We couldn’t agree more with him.
Breaking news for Bachelor fans as People magazine is reporting that Melissa Rycroft will be appearing on Dancing with The Stars this season. We reported yesterday that Jewel and Nancy O’Dell had to drop out due to injuries. The other replacement is rumored to be The Girls Next Door Star Holly Madison.
People reports Melissa has only had a few days to rehearse and will be performing when the show premiers tomorrow night. Great news for Melissa, what a great way to rebound after being publicly dumped by Jason.
