The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick and his girlfriend Molly Malaney have already given viewers an update on their "stronger than ever" relationship during Monday's The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All episode. Next week, it's Melissa Rycroft's turn to dish on her love life.

According to ABC, Rycroft, whom Mesnick proposed to last season but was later dumped for runner-up Malaney, will be returning on The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose to speak her piece. She'll be joining host Chris Harrison as she spills the details on her whirlwind celebrity life, her love life, her new job as a Good Morning America correspondent and as one of the top three contestants on Dancing with the Stars.

After getting her heart broken on The Bachelor, Rycroft joined Dancing with the Stars where she was paired with Tony Dovolani. She earned quite a solid following as sympathetic fans of the ABC reality dating series followed her to the competitive dance show where she finished third place. Subsequently, Rycroft landed a gig on Good Morning America where she serves as a special correspondent.

It seems that everything worked out for Rycroft, whose TV career isn't the only thing that has kept her happy these days. The former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader has also been recently engaged to boyfriend Tye Strickland, whom she had dated on and off for 2 years.
The Bachelorette: After the Final Rose is scheduled to air on Tuesday, July 28 at 10pm on ABC. By this time, Canadian love searcher Jillian Harris would have already made her decision. She's currently left with Ed, Kiptyn and Reid, who appeared to return in a promo for next week's big finale episode, airing on Monday, July 27, and may ask for a second chance at love.
