Rumors continue to plague The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick and girlfriend Molly Malaney even though they've tried to find peace away from the cameras. After Jason was spotted this week with former Bachelorette Deanna Pappas, rumors started to surface that the former couple are now dating.
Deanna and Jason first met in the fifth season of The Bachelorette. Deanna, who first appeared on The Bachelor but was yet rejected by Bachelor Brad Womack, chose Jesse Csincsa over runner up Jason, who went on to star on The Bachelor 13 where he proposed to Melissa Rycroft only to dump her for runner-up Molly.
Since gossip nowadays spreads like wildfire, Molly has decided to break her silence on the website Jason's Place to clear the rumors once and for all.
"He met up with an old pal for dinner...which has caused quite a stir in the gossip world this weekend. Deanna and Jason have remained very close friends since her season of the Bachelorette. I have also had the pleasure of becoming a good friend of hers, and she is one of the sweetest people I know. YES, I knew that they were going out for dinner, and YES I was more than okay with that. People got word of their dinner and immediately started stirring the pot with rumors. No need for hysteria...it was simply an innocent dinner among 2 friends," Molly wrote on her blog on Jason's Place.
Meanwhile, Molly and Jason fans are not likely to be influenced by unfounded reports. The couple, who claims they are happier than ever, has been giving updates on their relationship on Jason's Place on a regular basis. They have also been invited on tonight's The Men Tell All special on The Bachelorette where they'll be giving an update on their relationship.
