Bachelorette Jillian Harris Dishes On Wedding Plans & Babies

The Bachelorette’s Jillian Harris and fiancé Ed Swiderski appeared on the “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Thursday. Amidst all the rumors, the duo seems determined to stay together.

“We want everybody to know we are extremely happy and in love,” Ed tells Ellen, so much that the couple packed up Jillian’s home in Vancouver this past weekend and are officially moving in together next week.

“I’m all packed up and ready to go,” the 30-year-old smiled.

Ed attempted to explain away his alleged bad behavior by saying – “In every sense of the word, I was a bachelor before I went on the show, but I am not perfect. I am a human being.”

Ed goes on to say that he and Jillian have their struggles like any normal relationship and he is sure that fans of “The Bachelorette” would love to know the details, but there are things that should be kept private.

Ed also talked about the two women who started the “cheating allegation” controversy about him in the media. He says, “I don’t know what motivates someone to do something like that. I did have dialogue with these women and I know them pretty well. I don’t know what caused that.”

In other news, Jillian dished to E! News on Thursday at the Rosa Cha show at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week in NYC. Interestingly, Ed was unable to attend the event with her. Oddly enough, It was Ed’s idea for Jillian to be accompanied by Mike Steinberg, New York baseball camp owner that was eliminated in episode four of The Bachelorette.

“Ed was supposed to be here today but then he couldn’t book his flight,” she explained. “Ed and he have been really good friends since the show. So Ed’s like, ‘You know what, why don’t you have Steinberg sit in for me? That’ll make some great news.'”

Jillian admitted to spending time with the most disliked Bachelor Jason Mesnick and his runner-up, Molly Malaney. In addition, Jillian beleives “Reid Rosenthal, would make an ideal next Bachelor because he’s “a solid package.”

So what about wedding plans and kids?

“I think everybody witnessed that it could be so intense right after the show was over. We want to try to live a normal life and get to the point where we live together and start to come together and then start planning,” she said.

Jillian wants a low key wedding with about 100 guests, couple cakes and a live band. And somewhere in the future they also want babies.

Melissa Accuses Jason of Cheating, He Denies

Melissa appeared on the Ellen DeGeneres show this week and accused her ex Fiance Jason of being a liar. Melissa said she could never be friends with either Jason or Molly after what they did to her. According to Melissa, she had suspected Jason had been contacting Molly behind her back, and did not believe him when he claimed he had no contact with Molly on the After show.

She also went on to say it was pretty immediate after the finale that Jason realized he didn’t want to be with her. “Once we got back, we both kind of sat in the real world, and we were talking about how our relationship was different. He kind of gave up, and I couldn’t understand why at the time. Now I do because I think there was someone else involved.”

Melissa said she is now seeing a new guy who she referred to as being a long time friend of hers.

Jason also appeared on the Ellen show the next say along side Molly in which he vehemently denied contacting Molly while with Melissa. Jason said “If I had been talking to Molly, I would’ve known that she would have waited for me. It was one of the scariest things that I’ve had to do … I hate that it was on TV, absolutely.” Right Jason, Molly also chimed in saying she was very surprised by Jason’s choice and sympathized with Melissa.

I think I am more inclined to believe Melissa on this one. It makes perfect sense that Jason had some form of contact with Molly before the taping of the after show.
