Trista (Rehn) Sutter, the original Bachelorette, revealed she recently went under the knife, hoping to “feel pretty” again. Trista opted to have a blepharoplasty, which lifts the eyelids and removes under-eye bags, and a breast augmentation and lift.
“After nursing both my kids for a year each, my boobs were deflated and I had a droopy eye. It was something that I noticed in every picture I’ve ever taken,” Tristasays.
The two-hour special titled “The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding” is set to air March 8. Shockingly enough, this will only be the second wedding in the history of the Bachelor franchise. The special will include Molly’s dress fitting, planning for the big day, bachelor and bachelorette parties and the ceremony. Past “Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” couples and contestants will reportedly be on the guest list.
This isn’t the first time ABC has aired a Bachelor wedding. Trista Rehn and husband Ryan Sutter, who met on “The Bachelorette” in 2002, also had their wedding televised on ABC. It proved to be a big hit as it drew more than 17.1 million viewers.
Jason and Molly’s upcoming wedding will mark the latest twist in the Bachelor’s narrative that’s extended through a couple of seasons of the Bachelor franchise. Jason was one of the final two bachelors on DeAnna Pappas‘ edition of “The Bachelorette.” He became the first single dad on “The Bachelor” after being dumped by DeAnna, and then proposed to Melissa Rycroftin the finale, only to change his mind and break up with Melissa on national television and instead choose Molly.
All seemed to end well as Melissa got married last December, and Jason and Molly got engaged back in October, 2009.

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 BacheloretteTrista 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.
An insider toldIn 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 ABCpaid 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.
