Now that the hoopla of the Bachelor final rose ceremony is over, Jason has FINALLY admitted he DID speak with Molly when he returned from New Zealand. Liar liar pants on fire Jason. In a new interview, he spilled the beans with his local Seattle newspaper.
Did you two maintain contact while Jason was with Melissa? E-mail, text, IM, visits?
Mesnick: I had gotten permission when I got back from New Zealand to make sure she was OK.
Malaney: It was a very short conversation. I was not well. I just told him, I’m not upset. I’m not mad. I understand you had to make a decision.
In my experience, emotional affairs can be more dangerous than an actual physical one. People buy into the fantasy of the new lover, they become disenchanted with the other person, and wreak havoc in their personal life. I wonder if that’s what happened with Jason and Melissa? It would explain why the “chemistry” disappeared. Plus, he didn’t have 25 hotties fighting over some crappy rose.
Molly who is the total alpha female, took control of the situation. Whenever she’s interviewed, I feel like I’m watching an episode of Survivor or the Amazing Race. She’s constantly “selling us” and feeding Jason the right answers.
It sounds like Molly pursued Jason, “challenged him” and he caved in. Hopefully, after all the emotional damage they have caused these two will at least make it. Ty deserves to have a happy family life.
I still think Jason is a douchebag for breaking Melissa’s heart. We love ya girl
I love Bret Michaels, not only he is a rockstar, he is a gentleman. It looks like Mr. Rock of Love himself was NOT impressed with Jason’s break-up etiquette. He threw Jason under the Rock of Love Bus and gave him a few pearls of wisdom.
The Bachelor‘s fellow reality dating star, Bret Michaels, has a few words of advice for the most-hated man in America. “He definitely better hide his car because it’s about to get keyed,” said the Rock of Love star.
And while burns suffered in front of the camera sting the worst, they’re usually for the best, the Poison front-man believes. “In a sick way, I think he did Melissa a favor,” said Michaels. “It’s better to know now than after ten years of a phony marriage. If someone isn’t into me, I want them to tell me. I don’t want to come home to find them trying to get the milkman out of the house before I get back.”
While fans can’t seem to wrap their heads around why Mesnick got down on one knee when he wasn’t completely sold, Micheals can attest that the final decision isn’t grueling.
Though Michaels feels Mesnick deserves credit for coming clean, he also believes that the Bachelor could stand to learn some break-up etiquette.
“[Jason] went about it wrong way. I would have done it completely privately – and my show is only about dating. She thought she was getting married!” said Michaels. “I think he owes her a heart-felt apology.”
Listen and learn Jason.
THE BACHELOR – New Interview: Was Jesse Shocked by Jasons Decision and Deannas Visit to New Zealand???
Jesse our favorite Bachelor, watched the grand finale last night with Extra TV. In his interview, he says he’s interested to find out WHY Deanna paid Jason a visit in New Zealand. He confessed he still has a soft spot for Deanna. I wonder if he was shocked when she asked Jason back? It’s like breaking a persons heart twice.
Fortunately, Jesse has bounced back with his new girl Holly Durst. In his interview, Jesse did mention he was surprised by Jason’s decision to dump Melissa on TV. Yes and 17 million other Bachelor fans.
In Jason’s defense, he posted a supportive comment for Jason, Molly, and Melissa.
Being on the show is a huge experience that only the people who go on it can even imagine… It is very easy to judge the contestants and say ohhh well I would have done it like this.. Just remember that every season the contestants go on this show to fall in love and every year they do exactly that… This year Jason fell in love with Melissa and then they broke up and now he is dating Molly.. That to me is exactly what happened with Me DeAnna and Holly Durst except mine happened off Camera… My relationship with DeAnna didnt work out and now I am dating another Bachelor cast member HOLLY DURST.. Everyone is soo quick to judge the situation because it happened on camera but remember the people on this show are bound by an IRON CLAD 5 million dollar breach of contract penalty to do certain things on camera ( LIKE BREAK UP ).. So before you judge someone for going on TV and putting themselves out there just remember there are always things that you might not know that effect the situation…I wish Jason, Ty and Molly the best….. And I am sure a great girl like Melissa will find love again…
Just my thoughts…
I like Jesse, he always takes the high road. Unfortunately for us girls, we are less forgiving of Jason. Hopefully, Melissa will find a great guy soon.
THE BACHELOR – Fan Backlash: Trista Sutter and Andy Baldwin Speak Out About the Melissa and Jason TV Break Up!
Andy Baldwin (season 10 Bachelor) wrote on his Facebook page: “Andy is glad when he was the Bach. He was a man and didn’t sell his soul and cave. Such a sellout” and later wrote: “You do NOT break up on national television. That is the opposite of a gentleman.”
Trista Sutter, the successful reality star (she and husband Ryan are expecting their second child), told Momlogic.com “How could you go from being engaged to someone, to kissing someone else on the couch?!He doesn’t deserve to walk away scot-free. What disappointed me as a mom is that he introduced both girls to Ty. Melissa was around, and now she’s gone. What is Ty going to think?”
Sutter also revealed that she sent Melissa a text message saying, “‘I’m proud of the way you handled it.’”
But Sutter wasn’t finished with her say.
“She deserves so much better! Melissa hasn’t been able to say anything about this until now, so I think she’s relieved. I am happy she can finally move on. As far as I’m concerned, this is a blessing in disguise. Now she can find someone who truly loves her.”
She also warned Malaney, that with Mesnick’s “fickle” track record, “How can you trust him?”
I totally agree, how can you trust this guy? How can he trust himself? Also, what about his kid? If I was his ex wife I would be mad…I guess Molly has him by the balls, she probably made him do it publicly, just like it was done to her on the Final Rose ceremony. He had to “prove” his love. YUCK!!!
On a side note, Andy and Melissa would make a cute couple. We need to find her a nice man.
What about Jason making out with Molly only 20 minutes after he broke up with Melissa. Most girls would be “don’t touch me” and Molly was all over him like a wet rag. I’m sorry, I think Jason is a total jerk. The producers made me do it. Yes, of course they did. Why not be a man like Brad was and just say NO WAY!!! What are you 12 years old?
I can’t prove the emails below are authentic but it sure seems like it. Reality Steve says he might post the email exchange between the two at a later date as well. Fans can compare notes between what’s posted here and on his site.
Sent on January 19 to Jason from Melissa:
“I’m not stupid, I knew about Molly…knew you guys had been talking…and you lied to me about it. For you to choose to b e with someone who most of the girls in the house didn’t get a long with, and bashed me when she left, then more power to you both. You owed it to me to tell me this before last night…and I can’t believe you did that to me publicly. I can’t even tell you how much respect I lost for you…but it makes this whole process from here on out much easier for me.”

Sent on January 19, to Melissa from Jason: (crying again about falling and getting a boo-boo)
“I want to take all of your pain away and put it on me. If you are talking about Karma, I slipped and fell and had a huge gash in my leg 3 inches wide and to the bone. I deserve so much worse for what I am doing to you. Obviously you know more about me now and you just deserve so much more. I hate that I had to say that to you, and you had to hear that. You do need to heal and if that means never talking to me again or if that means, you getting angry with meas often as you want, I will do it all.”
Sent on January 21 to Jason from Melissa: (this is in response to his whining that the “producers made him do it,” wah wah, cue the endless stream of tears this man has.
At what point do you say, ‘Hey, guys you did your part, and now it’s our turn to have a real relationship without you meddling and telling us what to say and do?’ When I look at it that way, I’m thankful I found this out now. And I’ll just say, the Molly thing wasn’t a secret…just wish you’d had the decency to tell me before I was put in front of TV cameras – regardless of what Martin was telling you, as a person, a friend, etc. you owed me that.”
It looks like Melissa was suspicious of Jason all along. Call it women’s intution, but you KNOW when your man is cheating on you. Even if it’s only an emotional affair. We love you Melissa, you deserve someone so much better. Hang in there, you have the fans support. Here is a link to the “official” email exchange on Access Hollywood.
In another episode of “Sleazy in Seattle,” according to sources, in the most “Shocking Bachelor” moment, our fickle Cancer boy Jason, will get down on bended knee on AFTRC 2. Will he ask Molly to marry him? I hope not. What does that make, THREE marriage proposals in one year? Maybe Jason and Molly should move to Utah, or join the cast of “Big Love” on HBO. Bill Paxton can give him advice on how to handle multiple wives.
I’m sorry, this just seems so insincere, so silly, and so wrong. Molly is a young girl, she’s only 24, and I seriously seriously doubt this relationship will last. Jason is divorced and has already asked three women to marry him. In the real world, most women would run screaming in the other direction.
Jason seemed so smug on Jimmy Kimmel. I just wanted to reach through the TV set and slap him. Jimmy asked a good question, why ask either chick to get married. Wait he said, date for awhile.
I think Jason is an insensitive turd, explaining himself about “what happened.” BLAH, BLAH, BLAH. Jason actually thinks Melissa and him will be friends someday. CRAZY TRAIN!!! He’s going to help single parents??? Please. Yes, it’s your life but you are responsible for hurting Melissa’s feelings. If you would have kept Molly, would you have dumped her and asked Melissa to take you back? Very weird.
I seriously hope ABC isn’t thinking about airing this wedding. Heck, maybe Melissa will even get to be a bridesmaid. I love Jimmy, he really gave him a hard time. Go home Jason, bring on Jillian.
