The Bachelor 13 - Jason

Final Thoughts and Where Do We Go From Here

I’d say that the ATFR 2 was a complete waste of time last night. I told you Friday what was going to happen. Nothing surprising. All they’re doing is trying to make you hate Jason and Molly less and less than most people already do. Which is fine. I mean, that’s their couple after all now, so they got to make them look good however they can. Even if it meant embarrassing Melissa on national television. Like they care about that. Oh by the way, did you see the ratings from Monday night? Through the roof, as I thought they would be. 15 million watched the finale and 17 million watched the ATFR. Highest rated ATFR in the shows history, and highest rated finale since Guiney’s season. Thank you, thank you very much. I’ll take full credit for that. That’s why I never believed anyone who screamed after I ruined the ending on the You Tube videos, “That’s horrible! I’ll never watch this show again!” Please. You were all front and center on Monday night, and then some. How? Because the show was getting on average 11 million people weekly. Yet 15 million tuned in to the finale and 17 million watched the ATFR. So another 5 -7 million people, who didn’t give a crap about this show during the season, tuned in just for the end to see what all this hype was about. The hype that I created over a month ago. So ABC, feel free to scratch me a check at any point. Just don’t spell my name wrong.

ABC, Fleiss and Co. all got what they wanted out of this. They can BS us about “Well, we would’ve liked for Jason and Melissa to be our story if it meant sacrificing the ratings in the end”, when we all know that’s not true. This is Hollywood. This is TV. There is ABSOLUTELY NOTHING these people care more about than money and ratings. That’s it. That’s all their job requires them to do. Produce something that will get people to watch their show. I can’t make that any simpler. That’s why the contracts people sign to come on this show excuse ABC of any liability for how they portray any person whatsoever. You really, really, really think Mike Fleiss and Co. care about how Melissa ended up in all this? Please. There’s no better proof than him saying a couple weeks ago, “This is the best ending we’ve ever had.” You’re damn right it was. Take all human emotion out of Monday nights finale. Just pretend those were robots that were told to act that way (which some of you still believe was the case). Take all feelings and emotions out of Monday nights broadcast and just look at it from a pure drama/shocker/crazy ass plot perspective. That was damn entertaining. Finale not so much, but that hour of the ATFR show you can’t say wasn’t riveting television. You don’t think so? It was the lead story on most news and entertainment sites yesterday. I had over 700 emails for the day, did 5 radio interviews, and basically spent all day on the phone talking to people about it. And that’s exactly what they were going for. All the more reason I believe they had a plan, they executed it, and they got their results to the tune of 17 million freakin’ people.

Host Chris really had nothing good to say in his blog today either. I guess he’s had enough of going after me. Although, he really stuck his neck out there when gave us this beauty. “Five years down the road, when Jason and Molly are married, I wonder if many of you will feel different about this.” Holy crap! This couple is “a month” into their relationship and you’re predicting they’ll be married five years from now? For a show that’s never produced a marriage ever? Good luck with that. Please tell me somewhere in Vegas they’re posting odds on Host Chris’ beyond ridiculous prediction. I’d be a rich man if they did. If none of the previous 12 Bachelor couples have lasted, and they didn’t have even CLOSE to the pressure that Jason and Molly are starting their relationship under, why would I think those two will make it? Molly’s gotta have doubts about the guy whether she wants to admit it or not. He’s proposed to two different women in a year, and is now working on his 3rd “girlfriend” in that time. I’d say he’s a little fickle. And it’s almost like because everyone is hating on them already, and because people are expecting them to fail, they are going to try THAT much harder to please everyone by staying together and proving people wrong. In the end, I doubt it’ll work. I’ll stand by this shows track record, and that’s 0-for-12 in producing a marriage. I like playing the odds. Can’t get any better than a 0% success rate, can you?

As for the emails between Melissa and Jason, someone released them yesterday anonymously (shocker) and now the entertainment sites are running with them. And yes, those are the ones I’ve had in my possession for a couple weeks now. I’m glad someone else decided to do it, because I was not going to release them. I didn’t want that on my conscience anymore so I’m glad my name isn’t attached to them. I’m not going to post the link to them anywhere on this site because I don’t want to be associated with them. But they’re out there everywhere now, so they shouldn’t be hard to find. Remember, those just randomly landed in my email box from someone who had never emailed me before. So I’m guessing they were the ones who released it or anyone else they could’ve forwarded it on to. I had nothing to do with those getting released, and I’m sure if you check the IP address or domain name of whoever released it onto that blog yesterday, that’ll prove my innocence as well. I just couldn’t bring myself to do that to Melissa. I figured she’d had enough.

Everyone has their opinions of what went down this season. These will be debated forever, yet another thing ABC wants. As long as people are talking about their show, they’re happy. I came to you in January and told you about the shocking ending of what was going to happen on the ATFR show. It happened. I told you I had sources at the ATFR 2 taping this past Friday and what went down, and it happened. The only thing some of you are still having a hard time believing is what my sources told me about Jason being told to do this and him accepting. Well, considering my sources have been right pretty much every step of the way, is it really that far fetched to think they were wrong about this? Of course ABC/Fleiss/Harrison/Jason/Molly will deny it til the end of time. They have to. They’d be guilty as charged if they didn’t. But I think I’ve given you a map of how this season played out starting on Jan. 27th and ending last night. And I’d say that map was pretty clear. All I want you people to do is use common sense, think outside the box a little bit, and realize that this is completely possible on the way the season went down. Hey, I’m always going to believe it because I have no reason to doubt my sources. One thing to remember: I was never guessing on how I THOUGHT this “Bachelor” season would play out. I was TOLD how it was going to play out by people in the know. Big difference. They never lied to me once and gained nothing from lying to me, which is why I believed them. So all I can do is tell everyone to remember this is TV. This is Hollywood. Its fantasy land. All they care about is the bottom line which is making money. They will spare no expense to do so. Unfortunately, Melissa was that expense this season. And oh yeah, for the record, the “Bachelor” does get paid to do this show. You might want to figure all that in to this equation as well.

So Jillian is going to be our next Bachelorette. Yippee. Nice girl. Cute girl. But seems like this will remind me a lot of Meredith’s season. I mean, does Jillian really reach into the hearts of all Americans (despite being Canadian) enough to get them to watch her journey of love for eight weeks? I guess we’ll see. Obviously, people are going to watch. But unless there’s a huge scandal like this season, I don’t expect them to come anywhere close to those ratings numbers. But of course, I’ll be back writing about the show. In fact, I was thinking everything was gonna be back to normal next season. Just me watching on Monday nights, then making fun of it in the column on Tuesday mornings like I’ve done for the last 7 years. But I sh** you not, as I sit here writing this at 11:15 CST on Wednesday morning March 4th, I’ve already gotten news regarding Jillians season. Is it as big as what went down this season? No. Not close. But its damn interesting to hear. Jillians season begins shooting in two weeks and will air starting in May. That’s not the news. However, I’m going to go do a little more research on this thing and let me find out a little more. All I can tell you right now is that this is definitely stuff the audience wants to know. I will get back to you on this in the near future. And don’t worry, no clues this time. Ha ha.

As for those asking about any possible interview with Melissa, I think that’ll be tough. She’s going to be on “Ellen” tomorrow to tell her story, and I’m sure she’s talking to the magazines, but after that, I have a feeling she just wants to get back to her life. For all those who think she was a plant, and in this for the money, and just wants to be on TV, well, that’s not the case. If it was, she would’ve been the next “Bachelorette”. In fact, she was asked to (Which also goes along with the theory this plan was put in place a while back), but turned it down. How do I know this? Mike Fleiss said it himself in an interview posted yesterday. Here is the brief snippet from the interview:

THR: So is Melissa the next Bachelorette?

Fleiss: Nope. She didn’t want to do it. She’s heartbroken.

You can read the full interview here.

And now even Mike Fleiss is throwing Jason under the bus saying he wasn’t contractually obligated to break up with her on the show. Gee, so now all the major players involved are on different pages. Fleiss says he didn’t have to do it, but Chris Harrison and Jason are saying it had to be filmed because that’s what the contestants agree to. So which is it? Here’s the link:

Fleiss Throws Jason Under the Bus

I would think that someone who wanted money, fame, and fortune out of all this would’ve certainly agreed to be the focus of a show for 8 weeks. But can you blame her? After getting thrown under the bus the way she did? I certainly don’t. Look, if she was a plant and was acting in all this, then she wouldn’t be phased and hurt by all this, and she definitely would’ve just moved right in to being our next “Bachelorette” since she wouldn’t have had any hatred towards ABC and what happened to her. But apparently Melissa’s dignity doesn’t have a price, which is something I can’t say for certain people we know. Good for her. I believe after this week, she is pretty much going to disappear and will get back to living a normal life. I really don’t think there’s much more you could say about her character after hearing that she turned down their offer to be the next “Bachelorette”. And I hear it was a damn good offer, as well.

A lot of you have been asking what happens now that the show is over? In the past, I’ve gone into hibernation and barely produced any columns til the “Bachelor/ette” starts up again. Not this season. I’m going to start dedicating a little more time to the site. Looks like we’re finally going to have some advertising on the site and I’m working on a few other things as well. One thing that I’d really like your feedback on is possible merchandise. I know that I have a very loyal fan base that has followed me for a while and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate that. And I’ve always done my best to repay you by responding to your emails and answering all questions that you have. Although, the last couple days have been impossible, so don’t take it personally. Anyway, I was thinking of possibly coming up with something tangible. Like tshirts, hats, mugs, bumper stickers, etc. Of course, my brilliant mind wants to make boy shorts with “Realitysteve.com” across the ass, but, well, I don’t think that’ll play. Especially if you’re married or have a boyfriend. Anyway, merchandise is always something I’ve thought of doing, but never too seriously until now. I think it might happen though, so stay tuned. It would not be ridiculously priced and I wouldn’t be making a whole hell of a lot of it, but it’s something.

So I will still dabble here and there on “Bachelor” stuff during this “offseason”, but beginning next week, back to “Reality Roundup”. I think each one will feature an episode recap of “American Idol”, and then focus on the other stuff I’m watching like “Survivor”, “Celebrity Apprentice”, “The City”, “The Hills” (when it starts back up again), “Sober House”, and whatever else floats my boat in the TV world. But definitely it will focus on “Idol” since, well, that’s my favorite show going right now. I’ll just say this: I’d be shocked if Danny Gokey doesn’t win. The guy can sing his ass off and he’s got a story to boot. I mean, his wife dies 4 weeks before his audition? Who isn’t going to get behind that guy? Consider me the lead cheerleader on “Team Gokey”. Anyway, more on that next week. So thanks for sticking with the site during these last crazy ass six weeks. And to all of you new readers who had never heard of me until all this news broke, welcome aboard. Glad you’re a fan now. Any questions, comments, praises, criticisms, orders for your first “RealitySteve.com” t-shirt (ha ha), email me at steve@realitysteve.com. Talk to you soon.

    I don’t know if anyone has mentioned it…but I thought it was hilarious and quite fitting that when Jason walked out onto the Ellen set, they played “Hot N Cold” by Katy Perry. Perfect. lol

    Jason did publicly apologize to TB fans on Ellen yesterday. The sad part of the apology is that it should also come from the producers of TB, and that will NEVER happen. They are NEVER GOING TO ADMIT THAT THERE WAS ANY WRONG DOING ON THEIR PART, ESPECIALLY IF FLEISS SIGNED A NEW $100 million dollar contract. (see SMS comment March 6,2009 @ 3:24 a.m.
    From Fort).
    With that much money at stake, no wonder Fleiss has no scruples! It makes me sad to think he is being paid that much money to create a show based on lies and deception, when there are so many hungry, homeless people in the world, where that kind of money could be used to do some good! Apparently, Reality Steve’s inside sources are fed up with this show, too, because they are giving him so much inside info.

    As I have said before, the kind of hurt that Fleiss is causing with this show, he must not have a heart or a conscience. Reminds me of Ebenezer Scrooge in Charles Dickens’ The Christmas Carol.
    If Fleiss seriously thinks the way he is hurting people in the name of drama, ratings, entertainment and big bucks, is an all right thing to do, he needs a big wake up call like Ebenezer got, before it is too late. No, he won’t be visited by the ghosts of Christmases past, present or future, but someone needs to help him have a conscience. Some good, decent, rich person with money and high powered lawyers, who is appalled at this, enough to do something about it, and expose this show for what it is.
    The bottome line is this–this season is over–Thank you, God! Our lives will go on, Melissa has moved on, and Jason’s and Molly’s lives will go on, one way or another. Some of you will continue to follow the Bachelor/Bachelorette.
    I, for one, will not, because Reality Steve has exposed it for what it really is, and I have no desire to ever watch it again. I will continue to read RS columns though, because Steve, you are HILARIOUS!
    One last thot to you producers of YOU TUBE videos–I wish you would make a video for Melissa, who wisely refused to be the next Bachelorette, to the tune of Helen Reddy’s old song, I AM WOMAN. (It could also be for all of us former Bachelor fans, who won’t be wasting our time on this show anymore,because “We know too much to go back and pretend,” thanks to RS.)
    If you have never heard the song, you can find it on MySpace music. Here are some of the words:

    “I am woman hear me roar in numbers too big to ignore,
    And I know too much to go back and pretend.
    Cause I’ve heard it all before, when I’ve been down there on the floor.
    And no one’s ever gonna keep me down again.

    Yes, I am wise, but it’s wisdom for the pain.
    Yes I’ve paid the price but look how much I’ve gained.
    If I have to, I can do anything.
    I am strong, I am invincible.
    I am woman.

    You can bend but never break me
    Cause it only serves to make me
    More determined to achieve my final goal.
    And I’ll come back even stronger,
    Not a novice any longer.
    Cause you’ve evened the conviction in my soul.

    Thanks, Steve, for exposing TB for what it is, and for helping to free me from this train wreck of a show.

    Steve, I forgot one thing on my last comment. You mentioned having access to the contract, that is signed by participants in The Bachelor show. Is there any way you can show a part of this contract? I know several other people have expressed an interest in it too.

    Jpchick, re your comment about Graham. Message to MeYawna “maybe, he’s just not that into you”.

    Steve,

    I’d like the numbers back too. And I have to agree with Adelette, you do seem to be enjoying all of this.

    Here’s another song dedicated to J-Scum since he’s such a friggin crybaby.

    Now you say you’re sorry
    For being so untrue
    Well, you can cry me a river
    Cry me a river
    I cried a river over you

    hmmm, jpchick. RS even mentioned other reality shows in his last blog, specifically Team Gokey and AI. You are not in charge of this place, nor the ‘hall monitor’. You are so full of yourself and your narrow minded opinions, it’s laughable.

    Go team Gokey, I agree Reality Steve!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I stand correct if I came across as bringing anyone’s religion into this mess, that wasn’t my intentions at all. And just so you know, Yes I knew Jason was Jewish, and so what. His religion has nothing to do with this. BUT there are some pretty sicking human beings bashing and dwelling on this situation, and might I ad that its not really as terrible as most of you are making it out to be. So those that are SET on trashing his and Molly’s life, NO ONE COMMITTED A CRIME HERE, IT’S A REALITY TV SHOW, AND ITS VERY SAD THAT YOUR SO FULL OF HATE.

    And for ” l.a.l.” “MY LOVE” do not preach to me, you are full of sin.

    Take a pinch of bitterness,
    Add it to a pot of negativity.

    Throw in a quarter cup of lemons
    For a flavor that’ll make you grimace.

    Boil it for exactly five years.

    Let it get hotter and hotter
    Slowly by the second.

    Finally, make it stop boiling,
    Because it is already full of hate.

    Georgia Peach – I’m well aware that he mentioned other reality shows in his last blog. He mentioned that he will begin blogging about them this week in the Reality Roundup – NOT now, and NOT in this particular blog… you know, the one filed under “The Bachelor 13 – Jason”. Do try to keep up, it really not that hard to understand…. for you to claim that this particular post is intended to be anything other that a post about “The Bachelor” is really quite laughable.

    It wasn’t me that acted as the hall monitor around here – that was YOU. YOU were the one telling people that it was time to move on… and it happened to be directed towards those who have differing opinions than you do. So before you go accusing others of being narrow minded and acting as a “hall monitor” take a good look at your own behavior…. it’s pathetic, really

    Deegirl…. I saw Graham’s girlfriend interviewed in a magazine (she is on a soap opera). She was talking about some of the romantic things he has done for her. It’s too bad for Deanna that she couldn’t keep his attention – he seems like quite a catch, a very genuine, caring guy.

    I also watched that clip of him on You Tube that was posted above. Although it looks like he was taken off guard by the question, it’s clear that he completely disapproves how how Jason conducted himself this season. He is obviously embarrassed to have his name associated with Jason in any way — good for Graham.

    I emailed RS about the numbers missing on the posts and that we would like them back.

    Damage Control, pure and simple. Mesnicker has even changed his story yet again:

    1) The choice to dump Mel was his and it’s not in his contract.
    2) He’s now admited he contacted Mel, but only once.
    3) He’s very very sorry.
    4) It was worth whatever $ he was paid by ABC to do this (not mentioned)
    5) Can he please have Jill now? Please? PLEASE?? NO? Waa Booo Cry Cry.

    Next Season’s Bachelor: The last two decide they really like each other, not the Bachelor…in a Shocking Dramatic Twist NOBODY saw coming…..

    March 7, 2009 at 8:52 PM

    Hello “reality steve”. I’m “ontoyou”. You already had advertising on your You Tube stint- the Dasani water you drank. You are a plant from ABC. How else would Chris know on the ATFR 2 that people were outraged? The info had to be leaked in order for the special to have a premise. With your underwear idea I’m even wondering if you’re ellen. It fits right?- she’s the one with all the exclusives…she’s been getting special previews of the episodes…she called Deanna’s return a long time ago. I don’t have a clue what really went down but I am sure it has ALL been orchastrated by ABC- including you!

    March 7, 2009 at 9:40 PM

    Ontoyou

    You are laughable and brain dead. If you came on this blog around the end of Jan. You would know that Steve talked about the shocker. The reason why Chris knew about the outrage is because we were all going on his comment section (Chris’) and confronting him about it. The AFTR2 was filmed the Friday before it aired. The rumors about the conspiracy and the switcheroo was all over the internet and the press. ie Star, USweekly etc. Use your brain you dumb twit. And I do hope that RS was able to make some money for ads. Any penny he has coming to him is worth the entertainment he has provided his fans, on an otherwise boring season of the bachelor.

    Why don’t you know how to ligthen up. And having a husband who is in the military is great, buty doesn’t make you smarter. My husband was 10 years Army and his brother is a Lt.Colonel in the Army…so your attitude is uncalled for. I was posting how I feel, and I have 1st amendment rights..obviously you get a thrill out of arguing..so be it. Cheer up..it’s a friggin TV show.

    —————————————————————-

    Your also the person that said Melissa must be Bi-polar because she has been dumped 4 times in her life!! LMAO!! Your such a rude person. I tried to post back early and it wouldnt let me, so Im going to try again.

    You missed the whole point of my last message. I was being sarcastic when I said that at the end of my post. I NEVER meant that because I was a military wife I was smarter. I would NEVER say something like that. My whole post was about the fact that you said you could tell how a person is because youve been married for so long, have grown kids who have their own kids, and so forth. The whole point was no, that doesnt make you an expert on anything. Please go back, reread my post and TRY to understand it this time.

    Your one of the people who say whatever they want, when they want, regardless of who it hurts. Because its “your” right. You throw that around and expect no one to say anything back to you when your comments are rude or offending. Sorry, I WILL say something back. I dont like to argue, but when your rude, I will.

    Who cares if your husband was in the army. I sure dont, lmao. I could go and say, because it is my right too,that my husband is in the Marines. And we could open that can of worms. Marines vs army, but we wont. I could go even further and tell you that I have an uncle in the green berets, my father was in the army, my brother in law is in the army, my cousins in the Marines, and ect. But WHO CARES??? And obviously it doesnt make you smarter, didnt do you any bit of good!
    But thanks for the chuckles!!

    I don’t see any problem with Steve accepting ads or selling merchandise. He is providing a service for those of us who choose to read his blog and we would like to see him receive pay for it. Those who don’t like him have the option of not clicking on his website. He puts a lot of time into this, and it’s because we want him to. I’m willing to bet that over the last month of TB, it was almost a fulltime job. Additionally, he answers the e-mail we send him – I sent him one and had an answer in 4 minutes. That’s better customer service than any commercial business I have contact with. As to whether he’s an ABC plant – I truly doubt that. But if he was, so what??? Who really cares? He gave us info before anyone else did – it was accurate – and he was willing to put his neck on the line for a girl (Melissa) he didn’t even know. Personally — I am an RS fan.

    As for what is or is not discussed on this board – I’d say we can talk about whatever we want. If we want to talk about TB, go for it. If you want to talk about another subject – go for it. Aren’t we all supposed to be having fun, sharing info, and socializing? I can listen to my grandkids fight if I want that kind of entertainment. Let’s loosen up a bit and enjoy each other! 🙂

    LaLa…. I think the issues with posts not showing up may have something to do with attempting to post at times when Steve may be working on the website… it’s probably just a glitch that will work itself out when Steve comes up with a format that works best for him.

    as for “Georgia Peach” I’m just going to let it go. She has shown her colors here pretty clearly. She really isn’t worth the effort.

    Spunk:

    Please try to stop the nasty name callng.

    We can disagree without having to resort to that type of behavior.

    The reason RS created the log in is so that he could get rid of all the nasty name callers.

    Apparently you are back and that is to the detriment of all the rest of us.

    If your response is to call me a bunch of nasty names then you will prove my point.

    I don’t see any problem with Steve accepting ads or selling merchandise. He is providing a service for those of us who choose to read his blog and we would like to see him receive pay for it. Those who don’t like him have the option of not clicking on his website. He puts a lot of time into this, and it’s because we want him to. I’m willing to bet that over the last month of TB, it was almost a fulltime job. Additionally, he answers the e-mail we send him – I sent him one and had an answer in 4 minutes. That’s better customer service than any commercial business I have contact with. As to whether he’s an ABC plant – I truly doubt that. But if he was, so what??? Who really cares? He gave us info before anyone else did – it was accurate – and he was willing to put his neck on the line for a girl (Melissa) he didn’t even know. Personally — I am an RS fan.

    As for what is or is not discussed on this board – I’d say we can talk about whatever we want. If we want to talk about TB, go for it. If you want to talk about another subject – go for it. Aren’t we all supposed to be having fun, sharing info, and socializing? I can listen to my grandkids fight if I want that kind of entertainment. Let’s loosen up a bit and enjoy each

    One word of caution about talking about “whatever you want” – the conversation gets diluted. Those who come to the forum to discuss the isssue in that particular blog will not want to read through all the other mush. That is why many forums create OT sections. Perhaps Steve should consider doing the same.

    I agree with you on that! But as a military wife, I take it very seriously. I couldnt let anyone think that because of who I am married to, I think I am better than they are. Just not who I am!

    Just saw a blurb on People magazine that Melissa is going to be on Dancing with the stars on Monday night – replacing one of the injured…… Guess ABC wanted to kiss and make up and Melissa is letting them………

    Melissa is going to be on Dancing with the stars! From People magazine

    Rycroft, 25, is to fill the slot vacated by Access Hollywood host Nancy O’Dell, who had to withdraw from the competition on March 5 due to a knee injury. According to a source close to the production, the Dallas beauty, who has had only days to rehearse, is expected to perform live on Dancing’s Monday premiere.

    I was just coming here to post about Melissa on Dancing with the Stars!!
    I’m excited!! I like Melissa and what Jason and Molly did was terrible.
    I wonder if Jason and Molly will watch lol!!

    That is amazing news about Melissa! Good for her – she deserves it. She will do fantastic on DWTS with her dancing/performing background. In order to be a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, you have to be able to pick up choreography quickly so she should be fine with the short rehearsal time. Can’t wait to watch it!

    Melissa on Dancing. Interesting twist. Wasn’t it Melissa who said on Ellen that she had wanted to go back to a “normal life” ? Could it be that Melissa is not a victim after all ?

    Maybe its just me, but I believe RS – TB viewers and bloggers – including Ellen have all been big time DUPED.

    Makes me just want to laugh out loud, we’re all pawns.

    Hadn’t heard that about Melissa being on Dancing with Stars; she should be terrific; I agree with the comments about her having been a cowboy cheerleader she must be a quick study; I bet she’ll do well and give some of the other “celebs” a run for their money; who’s her partner? Altho I guess I can go look at the page and see who O’Dell was listed with can’t I. duh.

    Maybe ABC knew that Melissa could get more than 5 million for a tell all interview, book deal, mag covers, and she would spill secrets. Maybe this is a way for them to make sure she stays true to her contract. Dancing with the Stars will give her more exposure and make her an American Sweetheart.

    oh…and one more thought…Stephanie would be a better replacement.
    She has poise, confidence and the body. Wasn’t she a dance major ?

    I’m so thrilled for Melissa! I never watch DWTS – my parents always do and won’t miss it. I will watch it this season just to see Mel. From what I hear, this show is not in the same category as TB – look at all the stars who have done it. I imagine ABC realized how most of the public are looking at TB and J and Mol and realized they had an “Ace in the hole” with Mel. People like me who never watch will watch to see her – and I hope she wins! Thanks for letting us know!

    She can’t be too heartbroken. New boyfriend and a new TV gig in a hurry.

    You’re right I think, Stephanie was a dance major, but I can’t see her doing that show; she’s too inhibited for it and would never go along (in my opinion) with wearing the costumes and getting into the practice schedules they do. Melissa I think will be good and will probably get lots of fan support just because she’s been in the news so much. Up until hearing about her doing it, I figured Shannon, the olympic skater, would be the sweetheart of the show, but not so sure now.
