As BuddyTV reported previously, The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick and runner-up girlfriend Molly Malaney appeared yesterday on Good Morning America where Melissa Rycroft serves a special correspondent. The much-awaited TV appearance was Mesnick and Malaney's first together in nearly four months.
Prior to the interview, Good Morning America flashbacked to the drama that unfolded on the season finale of The Bachelor where Mesnick proposed to winner Melissa Rycroft and later dumped her for runner-up Malaney. The clips were heavy to look at for Mesnick and Malaney since the couple are now trying to put the unpleasant past behind.
On the other hand, the couple revealed that they are still together are "very happy" in spite of the distance (she lives in Milwaukee while he's in Seattle with his son Tye.)
"We're able to see each other every other weekend, if not every weekend," said Malaney, who insists that they are exclusively dating one another.
"I think if you take the whole show away from it, we've been dating for a little over 5 months, almost 6 months. And we're taking it at our own speed. Things are going great," said Mesnick, adding that they will tie the knot "absolutely someday."
Molly also said that she's initially concerned about the transition of dating a single parent. But everything worked out for the best.
"Tye and I get along really well," she said. "We talk on the phone, we play together when I'm in town. The transition has been very easy."
However, when asked about the hostile response he's suffered during his time as the Bachelor, Mesnick changed the subject to his organization for single parents, Jason's Place.
