A month after the Bachelor
finale that shocked a lot of people, we know that Melissa Rycroft
is doing quite well, wowing audiences with her dancing skills on Dancing with the Stars
and dating someone new. On the other side of the love triangle, the happy couple who broke her heart and gained widespread condemnation – Jason Mesnick
and Molly Malaney
– says they are, well, happy.
Jason and Molly told People
that they spent their post-Bachelor
“courtship” by getting to know each other off-camera. A highlight of the stage, they say, is Jason's visit to Molly's hometown in Milwaukee, which they spent introducing him to her friends, taking romantic strolls along Lake Michigan, and barbecuing.
“They all gave him the stamp of approval!” says Molly, in reference to her friends.
The 24-year-old department store buyer, however, says she has yet to fly to Seattle and spend a lot of time with Jason's four-year-old son Ty. Jason is not worried, though. He says the relationship is working. For instance, he often has a hard time keeping to a schedule, and Molly helps him in that aspect.
“We pull each other in the right direction,” Jason sums up.
