And now for the important news: Bachelor dumpee Melissa Rycroft will join the cast of Dancing With The Stars to take the place of injured Nancy O'Dell. Melissa, a sales rep and former Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader, was jilted by bachelor Jason Mesnick after getting engaged to him during the taping of last November's Final Rose Ceremony. Mesnick dumped Melissa on-air in favor of runner-up Molly Malaney during January's taping of the season's After the Final Rose special.
Melissa then refused to participate in last month's filming of After the Final Rose Part 2, another special that provided an update on the status of Mesnick's new relationship with Malaney.
