Bachelor: 'We Were Split Before the Show'

Bachelor Jason Mesnick comes clean to us about his shocking breakup.

The Bachelor

Just like the rest of America, our jaws dropped when we watched the drama that went down the other night on "The Bachelor." As moms, we had a lot of questions for single dad Jason Mesnick ... and some of our thoughts were not so nice. We wanted to know the truth, so we sat down with Jason for a candid, one-on-one interview. We learned that, for him, this was a terribly difficult decision that he did not take lightly, and he says never meant to hurt anyone.

Do you think Melissa knew your relationship was over?
Melissa definitely knew before going on [the show]. I mean our last conversation was: "Are you gonna to wear the ring? Because you know we're not together." And I think that she probably had some hopes still that maybe I was gonna change my mind, 'cause she was really upset. We didn't talk a couple of days before we shot. And that's OK. No matter what I said, she was going to be upset. We've talked about not being together over the phone but I had to tell her stuff in person, too. I'm not as cowardly as it might seem or as much of a jerk as I might seem for doing it on camera. But that was my only chance to do it.

Why did you propose to Melissa if you were that torn?
If I could go back again obviously -- yeah, I'm the stupid one. I shouldn't have proposed. But at the moment, I thought I was doing the right thing because she [Melissa] was the right one. She was the person I always dreamed of. Why wouldn't I propose to the person I've always been dreaming of?

Who do you think your mom preferred?
My mom wants me to be happy. And she met both Melissa and Molly and liked both of them. I know they spent one day together. She didn't really have a great judge of who she thought I should be with. She said as long as I'm happy, that's what's most important. But she said, "You know if you go through with [this breakup], people are going to really look down on you." And I said, "But it's the truth, and if people judge me for following my heart, I can't control that."

How does it feel to have all this criticism?
I think it's fair for people to have the right to judge me. But it was the truth.

How has your son Ty been handling all of this?
Ty has no idea what's going on. His experience with the show is: Yes, he did meet Melissa and Molly. But that's for one day, but through the experience when he was with me. It's not like it was just him and I playing and going to the beach and stuff. It's audio people, it's camera people, it's producers. And some of the girls even look like Melissa and Molly. You know, they are young producers and what not. And he has no idea. So he goes into it making a bunch of friends. The coolest guys are probably the camera operators that let him kind of get behind the camera and see how they work. That part was fun for him. But as far as the girls, I don't think he's able to kind of draw a conclusion from that.

I am a firm believer in the people. If given the truth, they can be depended upon to meet any national crises. The great point is to bring them the real facts.

Females generally usually are not seeking to drop substantial amounts of fat generally. Most of the people utilizing phen375 are just trying to drop 5 in order to Twenty-five weight normally as well as typically it’s belly fat. Nearly all are wholesome, navigate to the health club type people. They simply have not been able to drop fat deposits on their own stomach or perhaps reach a Plato. Belly fat concerns usually start to happen for ladies around the time associated with or after child birth and later within age group before menopause. It seems like hitting ladies while right now there hormonal changes are usually altering; it’s a normal means of life or is that? I will demonstrate that the actual fat stored in the actual belly or perhaps belly location differs as well as the a lot more you’ve than it the particular whores the hormonal discrepancy will become.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

This site seems to get a great deal of visitors. How do you promote it? It offers a nice individual spin on things. I guess having something useful or substantial to say is the most important thing.

Hi, - discovered your site unintentionally whilst wandering across the web this evening, and delighted that I did! I do like the design and tones, but I should point out that I’m having difficulty when it loads. I’m using Flock 2 internet browser for mac, and the menu bit fails to align nicely. i’m confident I’ve made use of an identical layout on a company’s internet site, but the menu seems fine on mine. I suspect the mistake is at my end and maybe it’s time to update!
