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.

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.
Melissa appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show this week and accused her ex Fiance Jason of being a liar. Melissa said she could never be friends with either Jason or Molly after what they did to her. According to Melissa, she had suspected Jason had been contacting Molly behind her back, and did not believe him when he claimed he had no contact with Molly on the After show.
She also went on to say it was pretty immediate after the finale that Jason realized he didn’t want to be with her.“Once we got back, we both kind of sat in the real world, and we were talking about how our relationship was different. He kind of gave up, and I couldn’t understand why at the time. Now I do because I think there was someone else involved.”
Melissa said she is now seeing a new guy who she referred to as being a long time friend of hers.
Jason also appeared on the Ellen show the next say along side Molly in which he vehemently denied contacting Molly while with Melissa. Jason said “If I had been talking to Molly, I would’ve known that she would have waited for me. It was one of the scariest things that I’ve had to do … I hate that it was on TV, absolutely.” Right Jason, Molly also chimed in saying she was very surprised by Jason’s choice and sympathized with Melissa.
I think I am more inclined to believe Melissa on this one. It makes perfect sense that Jason had some form of contact with Molly before the taping of the after show.
