Melissa Rycroft: I Forgive Jason Mesnick

by at . Comments

Perhaps now Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney can live happily ever after.

Following the couple's week-long apology tour - Mesnick and his chosen Bachelor suitor have appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Bonnie Hunt Show and pretty much any set with a camera - the woman publicly spurned by America's least favorite single dad has moved on.

"I accept the apology. Forgive, forget," Melissa Rycroft told Extra yesterday. "I'm moving on. And I'm away from that situation, in a new relationship and a new life, really."

That new life, of course, includes a spot on season eight of Dancing with the Stars.

Rycroft and partner Tony Dovolani earned an impressive 23 points for their waltz Monday night. She's received an outpouring of support over the last week, from celebrity gossip followers to former Playmate Bridget Marquardt.

The question is: Now that Melissa has forgiven Mesnick, can you do the same? Write in. Let us know!

Forgiveness is the key to happiness. Ask God to forgive us, Ask the person who we did wrong to forgive us, and then we MUST forgive ourselves. In this case, they have all seemed to forgive each other. It is just harder in this kind of situation. It was so public. But all is well that ends well. I rooted for Melissa until the end and I saw Jason crying when he let Molly go. He should have make them bring her back then, not waited and broken Melissas heart. But then live is hard and it does not come with and instruction manual. Before you keep damning Jason and Molly, look in your own closet!!!!

If Jason was sure that he did not love Melissa then he did the right thing but just the wrong way. He should never have kept in contact with Molly while engaged to Melissa. That tells me, he cannot be trusted. Melissa is too nice a girl for him and I am glad that she is getting on with her life. Personally, I could not do what the girls on The Bachelor do. I do not want to know who my boyfriend is sleeping with. You know that he slept with all those girls. He is a man, isn't he? I think that it just infatuation that he has for Molly and not a lifetime, till death do us part, partner.

Melissa was showing off all along! Playing to the cameras. When the cameras disappeared, she changed. She is just a ham and she got the chance now to do what she wants to do. If she was a Dallas Cheerleader, then she liked to show off her stuff and pretend. Being real involves taking responsibility and it seemed to me that she's all for show, especially when she accepted the last rose. Not a romantic heartfelt reaction, a simple screech. I hope Jason and Molly understand and like one another. I always thought that Molly and Jillian were his best choices, a pair instead of two odd..s One has to wonder why her family never appeared, maybe they knew the real Melissa better. I hope Melissa is pleased with her new showbusiness life, and her quick "love" recovery to a new boyfriend. Everyone deserves happiness, doing what one likes best. I think being in the spotlight is the life she wanted.

BYW, isn't it fortunate that Melissa had her "good friend"in the background to support her. Now she's in US magazine talking about him! She sure didn't grieve for long over the loss of Jason. Had they not broken off on the show, how long would it have been before SHE called it quits to be with TY?
Let's quit feeling sorry for her. It's over and done with and it seems everyone has moved on but the audience.

What's to forgive. It was obvious from the way that Melissa walked on stage that she was not surprised. Was the network supposed to just cancel the show? How ticked off would you all have been, had that happened. J. and Melissa had spent time together and apparently both were feeling that it wasn't going well. Few of these reality relationships make it, so let's hope that this is one of the few that does.

I was in Jason's position just about two years ago, except of course I wasn't on "The Bachelor". I was in love with two women and I made the choice he did and it was so so stressful. I'm married to the runner up now and I'm happy. My story was a lil worse tho, my melissa became accidently pregnant and then I realized I loved the other girl. Thats a worse case scenario. She had a miscarriage unfortunately and the story ended the same way Jasons ended. I felt like the biggest asshole in the world but I couldn't live a lie and marry the wrong person even tho she was pregnant. I was gonna take full responsibility for our baby but we lost it. I had to follow my heart and I felt so bad for doing it.

Jason doesn't owe us an apology for the feelings in his heart..... As long as Melissa does, that's all that matters... Who are we to judge....we ALL make mistakes or poor judgement, at the time we think it's right, but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't.. Enough on this...let them all live their lives...we have no place in the middle of it...just wish them all happiness... Let's all move on....more important things to worry or get upset about....

Is Melissa so innocent? What was the true reason for her parents not accomodating Jason's visit? Was there something like the "2 year old relationship" that Melissa was hiding from the viewers. She got over Jason rather quickly and ran back into the arms of her boyfrien. I smell and if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and sounds like a duck, then what is it?===A DUCK!! Jason's grave error was choosen Melissa when she hid her parents from him. And stop bashing Molly. Jason and Melissa were not married. Was this the first broken engagement? What about the divorces. Jason was smart and honest to do it early. The TV break up was not too nice, but this is life and Melissa is no goody two shoes.==Jason show the world rhe character that I know you have. Marry Molly, love her forever live happily ever after. The critics are hypocrites for I am sure that they have sKeletons in their closets. Live with your choice. It is your life. Melissa was and is living hers (a shady one).

All I am missing, really, is someone to share [my life] with. There's no guarantee but 25 girls? I mean it's a real opportunity to find just one.

Jason Mesnick

I haven't dated at all since DeAnna. I wanted to give myself the time to heal so that when I got out there again I was really ready to give whoever I am with the respect and total attention she deserves.
