Melissa Rycroftis officially a married woman. The 26-year-old Good Morning America correspondent was dumped on national TV earlier this year by The Bachelor winner – Jason Mesnick. Jason proposed to her on the finale, and then later changed his mind. All that drama is now in the past for Melissa as she exchanged vows Saturday afternoon in Mexico with fellow Texan – Tye Strickland.
“Tye is my best friend in the world, and now he’s my partner forever. We have had such a journey within our relationship, that to finally look at him and see my husband, gives me the calmest, most content feeling in the world,” Rycroft told In Touch Weekly. “I love him so much and am so excited for our forever to begin!”
Melissa got married in a beautiful Alfred Angelo gown. Tony Dovolani, Melissa’s dance partner on Dancing With The Stars and the Bachelorette’sJillian Harris were on the guest list. Both Melissa and Tye dated on and off for a couple of years before finally reuniting earlier this year. We certainly wish them the best.
Susan Boyle is set to perform on Dancing With The Stars. According to PEOPLE, the Scottish singer will fly to Los Angeles for an appearance on DWTS early next week. “She’s excited and happy,” says her brother, John Boyle. “She loves America and loves the people. She appreciates their honesty.”
Susan, who previously appeared on America’s Got Talent last September will perform “I Dreamed a Dream” from her upcoming CD due out Nov. 24. While Susan is singing, Pro dancers Tony Dovolani and Chelsie Hightower will perform on the ballroom dance floor.
Susan, who is not a big spender, recently purchased a three-piece sofa and recliner set in burgundy leather for her small home in Blackburn, Scotland, and a new refrigerator. “Moneywise, she’s very frugal,” says her brother.
As the last three contestant Cheryl & Gilles, Shawn & Mark , Meilssa & Tony duke it out on the dance floor who will take home the trophy? According to our polls, we project Gilles and Cheryl as the winners of the 8th season of DWTS. However based on tonight’s performance, I think that Shawn and Mark were phenomenal and should win.
There is no doubt that these three dancers can bring it anyday but who will Americans vote for? Be patient and stay tuned tomorrow as we crown the new winners of DWTS.
Melissa Rycroft, 26 years old has worn many hats including sales representative, former cowboys cheerleader, DWTS contestants, Bachelor contestant and winner though this is questionable. In addition, Melissa was named people magazine list of world’s most beautiful people of 2009. Way to go girl!
So is Melissa ready for playboy? Rumors have it that Melissa will be featured in playboy after DWTS. Melissa tells USmagazine.com that being in playboy will not be happening and besides her father will kill her.
Sorry guys this rumor is false, however i can tell you that after DWTS you’ve not seen the last of Melissa. At the moment, Melissa’s focus is winning DWTS so she working hard as the finale approaches. Melissa also enjoys working with Tony her partner in DWTS.
Rycroft, who was famously dumped by BachelorJason Mesnick on national TV, says she is just delighted on how far she’s come. Rycroft is currently in a relationship with Tye Strickland and they both seem to be happy.
After DWTS, Melissa plans to go on vacation with no access to her cell phone, radio or TV. Overall. Melissa seems to be happy in her life and present situation.
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.
