Posted by Veronica Santiago Categories: Prime Time, Reality, Specials, ABC, Gossip,

Jason Mesnick and Molly MalaneyHe may not be marrying the girl he originally proposed to, but that won’t keep ABC from celebrating his nuptials.

Later this spring, the network will be the venue for and Molly Malaney’s wedding. The event comes approximately five months after the two became officially engaged, and over a year after the former Bachelor publicly - and famously - broke it off with his previous fiancee, Melissa Rycroft.

ABC says this will be the “first couple to ever walk down the aisle,” Trista Rehn - a Bachelorette - had her wedding to Ryan Sutter broadcast in 2002. (Mesnick and Malaney also didn’t end their season as a couple.)

During the two-hour event, romantics will get glimpses of the pre-wedding preps including the bridal fitting and the bachelor/bachelorette parties.

The bells will ring for The Bachelor: Jason and Molly’s Wedding on March 8.

DWTS’ Melissa Rycroft Gets Another Chance

Dancing with the Stars' Melissa Rycroft and Tony DovolaniOnce again, fans proved they love to see a comeback story. But will their votes have been in vain?

Even though a rib injury kept her from performing on Monday, Melissa Rycroft’s supporters rallied to keep her around for another week. This despite no guarantees that she will even be able to dance again.

During last night’s results show, Melissa updated the audience on the status of her hairline fracture. “We’ve started new treatment and we’re kind of optimistic that it will be effective,” she explained.

Since the former Bachelor star was spared elimination, the ax had to come down on another couple. Although they went into the evening with 5 more points than Rycroft and Tony Dovolani, and Julianne Hough were the ones sent home. But is there a possibility that they could return?

Should Melissa discover that she can’t continue as previously hoped, would the producers bring back the last pairing? Or would that all depend on the timing of her decision? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

Injured Melissa Rycroft Sidelined on Dancing with the Stars

Could there be another bad ending in Melissa Rycroft’s reality show run?

Although it seemed like we had finally gotten past the curse, Jason Mesnick’s ex was absent from tonight’s taping. It was revealed that a rib injury suffered last week was actually a hairline fracture.

Despite Melissa’s efforts to perform this week, it became painfully clear after rehearsals that she couldn’t go on. Assuming she’s able to return to the competition (it’s currently believed she will), the judges went ahead and scored her pre-taped jive. (That was what they also did in the Steve-O back injury situation.) Unfortunately, the dry run with Tony Dovolani offered little substance and only earned a 21.

We should expect an update on Rycroft’s status on tomorrow’s results show.

DWTS’ Holly Madison Calls Rycroft’s Background “Unfair”

Dancing with the Stars' Holly MadisonIs she just a jealous, uncoordinated dancer…or does have a point? (Or both?)

From the minute she took over for Nancy O’Dell, it was clear would go far on Dancing with the Stars. And though many were glad to see Jason Mesnick’s dumpee given a chance to rise above the ashes, did she bring too much momentum - and experience - to the competition?

While speaking to Us Weekly last weekend, Madison said her biggest threat was Rycroft. “She is an amazing dancer and everybody loves her, including me.”

But when asked how she really felt about her rival’s ballet and cheerleading background, the former Playboy bunny admitted that she thought it was “unfair.” She added, “I wish I had that advantage.”

Well, as Simon Cowell might say, it probably wouldn’t make a difference if Melissa was there or not. If you don’t bring coordination to the table, you’re not going to win anyway.

Just days after being publicly humiliated on TV, The Bachelor‘s Rycroft will reportedly be facing the national spotlight once again. According to People, the jilted fiancee will be stepping out on the ballroom floor tomorrow as Nancy O’Dell’s substitute. Although Rycroft will have had little rehearsal time, the 25-year-old already has other dance (and reality) experience under her belt. Melissa was also featured on Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making the Team.

Earlier this week, it was revealed by several sources that Holly Madison (The Girls Next Door) would be filling in for singer Jewel.
