Molly Malaney and Jason Mesnick: So Happy Together

by at . Comments

It's been quite a week for Jason Mesnick.

More than 17 million viewers watched the single dad get down on one knee and propose to Dallas beauty Melissa Rycroft on the two-hour season finale of The Bachelor, only to dump her like 45 seconds later on the "After the Final Rose" special.

Mesnick then confessed he still had feelings for Michigan department store buyer Molly Malaney - to the dismay of Rycroft, who said in her first interview after the finale that Jason lied about Molly to her on more than one occasion.

The shocking events will be hotly debated for some time, but Jason and Molly are brushing off the haters and looking very happy on the cover of People.

In an exclusive sit-down interview with the celeb news magazine, Jason again defends his decision to dump Melissa Rycroft in front of the ABC cameras.

"That was part of the deal. I signed up for this. Your relationship is - good and bad - in front of everybody," Mesnick lied to People through his teeth.

In her interview, as well as her personal emails to Jason, Melissa Rycroft did corroborrate The Bachelor star's statement that they drifted apart shortly after they returned from New Zealand and tried to resume their normal lives.

"After we got back into the real world, we had less to talk about, and I didn't know why," says Jason, who couldn't stop thinking about the girl he left behind.

Turns out Molly Malaney shared similar feelings.

"After the finale I thought he made the wrong decision and I was so upset. I was totally shocked," Malaney says. "I thought, Gosh, it would be so awesome if he called me up and was like 'I made a mistake, I want you back.'"

"Never in a million years did I think it would happen."


molly, you were indeed number 2 for a moment. and you accepted his aplology straight away? you are so stupid! you didn't even think it through and the fact that jason broke somebody else's heart, you're so stupid! you think you're the queen already and jason, bad move man. i know you and molly won't last long, sorry to say! mellissa is way prettier than molly, molly sucks real hard


I am so for Jason and Molly - let them live their life. They so deserve it. Please do not judge them for "whatever" they are only human and deserve a change of everlasting happiness. Things happen and so be it. Let them be happy and live in harmony. God Bless them Boh along with Ty in their relationship


I wanted him to choose Molly in the first place. I wouldn't have wanted to marry Melissa either. It's sad that she only have the whole package on the outside, so if Jason needed a real minute to find that out then I'm glad he got the chance and I hope that he and Molly continue to have a happy life together. I know what it's like to be with someone and wonder WHY it doesn't feel right, it may feel like a crappy decision but two people are better off splitting up rather than trying to fight a losing battle.


People, please grow up. Let's not be so judgemental. Jason is a human being who can make mistakes. Melissa is also human being who can make mistakes too. So, is Molly. No one is perfect. I am happy that Melissa is out of it early. She has moved on and let's be happy for her. Let's all wish Molly and Jason the best. I hope their love survive and live happily ever after. It must be difficult to find true love on a show like this in a very short period of time. No wonder there has been only one successful relationship. This show this thing does not work for most people. Let's not caught up with it and blame Jason, Melissa or Molly. Also, one of Melissa's friends mentioned that Melissa was not treated well by her exes (during home town date), the same with Jason. Could there be something that we all don't see in her on just on TV ?


the three of you just need to get over it... This is a man for you.. Most men are the very same. seeing how much they can get, never satisfied and making a complete ass of themselves!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Melissa was right.. Jason does not deserve her.!!! as for molly, she should have dumpe him right thee on tv and not smiled and hugged and kissed him.. I would have dumped him so bad.. i guess Molly forgot what he had done to her... lol Jason will do it again,,,,, to Molly this time........


I think its great! Molly was my favorite too..Good luck to you both!


I agree with Rebecca. Grow up people! It's real life after the show. How many others have actually picked correctly at the final rose? ONLY ONE!!! Seems to me that all of them have been fickle. I hope Jason and Molly have truly found love and did what was necessary to reach the final stage of marriage. I wish them the best and Bravo to Jason for being a MAN and standing up and being true to your heart. And don't listen to anyone that degrades you for crying. That makes you more humanistic and a true wonderful catch for anyone. All the best to both of you.


Sara, if you're supposed to be more concerned about "real life issues, not reality TV," why are you wasting your time reading and posting here ... Sara Says:

"You all need to get a life and start worrying about REAL LIFE issues, not reality TV. Let these people live their lives the way they want - why the hell are you all so interested in it? You said your 2 cents, now get over it. The real losers are you all who are wasting your time venting when I am pretty positive Jason and Molly could give half a rat's ass. Your opinions mean nothing, as this is Jason and Molly's life, NOT YOURS. Get over it."


Iguess they really do deserve each other. I mean they look so fakey together. I really think Molly Malaney was paid off by the person that he is really engaged to....Besides Molly Malaney is the most awful looking "b" I have ever seen. Her face spells fake all over the place.


I just can't believe what Jason did! It's so funny, when Melissa stepped out of the limo, on the first show, I said to my sister, "That's the girl Jason will pick." Too bad I was right! That girl didn't deserve what he did! I really think this gave the show a bad name! I'm no longer interested in watching this program. I also can't believe that Jillian is the next bachelorette! She's just not very attractive and the only reason men will be fighting for her is because they will be on TV! Stephanie should have been the bachelorette! People would have LOVED that! Now there's a woman who deserves to be happy! She's a sweet, attractive girl with a good heart!
