11 Celebrity Moms Who Battled Postpartum Depression

Melissa Rycroft is perhaps best well-known for being proposed to and then dumped by “Bachelor” Jason Mesnick in favor of his runner-up. Since then, however, Rycroft has made the most of her unfortunate initial 15 minutes of fame, finishing third on “Dancing with the Stars,” marrying the boyfriend she had before “The Bachelor,” Ty Strickland, and, in 2011, starring in a reality show on CMT about their life together with baby daughter Ava, born in 2009.

But in the new issue of Us Weekly, Rycroft opens up for the first time about her battle with postpartum depression, telling the magazine that it started as soon as Ava was born. “Almost immediately I didn’t feel right,” she says. “I had just given birth to this perfect baby, but absolutely nothing made me happy anymore. I had no idea what was wrong. I had these great blessings, but I felt empty. I’d put Ava in her crib and go outside and scream for a minute.” Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Papa Bach Jason Mesnick Pops The Question Again!

Fashion! Disaster! Miranda Kerr Temporarily Blinded By Perfume

At a Victoria’s Secret “Heavenly Enchanted” perfume launch this weekend, Victoria’s Secret model and girlfriend of Orlando Bloom, Miranda Kerr, was temporarily blinded when former “Bachelor” and “Dancing with the Stars” cast member Melissa Rycroft “accidentally” sprayed perfume in her face. Apparently Melissa felt really bad for handicapping the Australian model. [NY Post]

It’s really hard not to laugh when bad things happen to beautiful people. (Do you think it’s funny when models fall on the runway?) Luckily, YouTube users have made a sport of compiling clips of fashion disasters. Hopefully, Miranda is doing better. But in the meantime, we’ve found some other OMG model moments. Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Jay-Z Still Hates Chris Brown

    Bonnie Sheds New Light On “Bachelor” Drama

    Yesterday afternoon I happened to switch on “The Bonnie Hunt Show,” a program I don’t normally watch (honestly!), just as Bonnie was introducing “The Bachelor”‘s Jason Mesnick and his Bachelorette, Molly Malaney. Last week I was on vacation in Central America, but by some grace of God, my hotel had satellite cable and I was able to catch the finale and both “After The Final Rose” shows (much to my boyfriend’s chagrin). I also might have flipped through the People that featured Jason on the cover while I waited to board my flight back to the States, so I was pretty up on what was going on in “Bachelor”-land despite missing some of the TV interviews last week. Still, there were some juicy revelations in this two part Bonnie Hunt interview — which clocks in at a whopping 17 minutes, 6 seconds, so grab some popcorn and get comfy. Pay particular attention to the little nugget of info shared at the tail-end of part two (clip after the jump, at around 8:50 or so), which sheds some new light on all the drama. Keep reading »

    Star Couplings: Melissa Rycroft Dazzled On “Dancing”

  • With only two days of practice, Melissa Rycroft totally smoked Holly Madison, who had five days of practice, on “Dancing With the Stars” last night. In fairness, she was a professional cheerleader, while Holly was a professional bunny rabbit. [People.com]
  • Kanye West and Amber Rose made an appearance at the Stella McCartney show in Paris recently. Ever notice how they’re never touching each other directly? [Dlisted]
  • Miley Cyrus has such a strong sense of entitlement that she parked in a handicap spot while she and boyfriend Justin Gaston bought milkshakes. And this isn’t the first time she’s broken the law. [Perez Hilton]

    Star Couplings: Melissa Rycroft Is A “Dancing” Star

  • Melissa Rycroft, the contestant dumped on the season finale of “The Bachelor,” will replace Nancy O’Dell on “Dancing With the Stars.” Take that Papa Bach! Oh, and considering she’s a former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader, the competition should be scared. [People.com]
  • M.I.A. slammed reports saying she had named her son “Ickitt.” She still won’t say his name because he doesn’t need press. [Reuters]
  • Jimmy Kimmel and Sarah Silverman are off again. And it seems they’re done for good. [Dlisted]

    Charting The Life Span Of A “Bachelor” Relationship

    This week’s season finale of “The Bachelor” may have been exciting, but really, when you think about it, the results were pretty typical of past seasons. Former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Melissa squealed as Papa/Poo-Poo Bach slipped a ring on her finger. The episode ended with the two of them jumping in a pool for a smoochfest. Then, two seconds later, came the “After the Final Rose” special. And a teary eyed Jason proceeded to dump Melissa because “the chemistry had changed” and he was totes hung up on Molly, the girl he’d sent packing.

    Shocker? Sure. But “The Bachelor” hardly has a track record for couples staying together for longer than their 15 minutes of fame. Currently, Poo-Poo and Sloppy are still together, but the likelihood of that lasting doesn’t look good. After the jump, exactly how long the “Bachelor” couples have stuck it out. Any woman thinking of responding to their next casting call, beware. Keep reading »

    The Bachelor’s Melissa Rycroft Is Sad To Be Dumped

    Regardless of which one of these MySpace pages belongs to Melissa Rycroft, who got her ass dumped on “The Bachelor” finale last night — take your pick — she appears to be super sad! Or, you know, totally humiliated. “Love is a promise, love is a souvenir, once given never forgotten, never let it disappear,” reads one, but we like the update on the other one better: “Mel is completely humiliated.” Molly Malaney, who got dumped and then reupped, doesn’t appear to have a social networking presence, probably because she knows everybody hates her guts now. Melissa, on the other hand, has multiple Facebook groups dedicated to her: “Jason Mesnick is a SCUM BAG for dumping Melissa Rycroft!” and “Thank You Jason, We Will Gladly Marry Melissa Rycroft.” I think we may have found the next Bachelorette.
