The Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas didn’t get her happily ever after (for the second straight time), but she’ll be helping other brides-to-be plan their dream weddings. Something she is well-versed in after the past year. Oh, wait ...
DeAnna, who recently called off her engagement to pro snowboarder Jesse Csincsak, will be co-hosting Lifetime network’s Get Married, a show that covers all things weddings. Something she is very knowledgeable about ... not having.
The second season premieres January 5 - not long before another of DeAnna's famous rejectees, Jason Mesnick, debuts on the new season of The Bachelor.
DeAnna Pappas announced her new gig on the show's blog.
“I am so happy to be co-hosting the new season of Get Married! Every weekday morning I will be bringing you the latest in wedding planning tips and trends, and weekly I will be blogging here at bloggerbrides.com,” Pappas writes.
“Many of you may know me from seeing me on television looking for love ... The second show, many of you watched as I got down to one man ... he got down on one knee and proposed to me ... unfortunately we have since gone our separate ways but still remain very good friends. From my personal love experiences and sharing the ups and downs of love with my friends, I have become a go-to girl among my girlfriends who have become beautiful brides themselves.”
In light of her recent breakup with Jesse Csincsak - which even Bachelor host Chris Harrison says was sparked by her "going Hollywood" - some question if DeAnna really makes the best co-host of a wedding show. What a crazy notion.
But Get Married CEO Stacie Francombe, who hired Pappas after watching her on The Bachelorette’s fourth season, maintains DeAnna is the right person for the job.
“The truth is going to come out as to what really happened,” she says. “She’s very real and very honest about who she is and what she wants in life. She wants to talk to brides, she wants to help them and she wants to listen to them.”
As for DeAnna Pappas, she's very much in search of Mr. Just Right.
“[Jesse Csincsak] is a wonderful man and will make some woman very happy one day,” Pappas laments, but not for too long of course. “As for me, I still VERY much want to be in love, GET MARRIED, and start a family of my own!”
