Sheena Stewart Defends Jason Mesnick

by at . Comments

Remember Sheena Stewart?

If so, you may need to get a hobby. But as the editors of this site, we're not ones to criticize. Anyway, she was rejected by Brad Womack on Season 11 of The Bachelor and is now defending embattled star Jason Mesnick.

While many are annoyed at The Bachelor star for his public spurning of Melissa Rycroft and subsequent embracing of Molly Malaney on the recent "After the Final Rose," Stewart is one of the few to defend his change of heart.

This may come as a surprise to many Bachelor fans given that Stewart already got her dose of reality TV agony from that jackass Brad Womack.

She even admitted that her heart felt like “it got ripped in half” after he eliminated her from the competition (as he later did the other girls, too).

On the other hand, Stewart has an idea of what Jason Mesnick is going through “because she knows reality TV makes people do strange things.”

"I give him the benefit of the doubt," Stewart said. "You really do get caught up in the show and in the moment. There's pressure. You're secluded from the outside world. The producers are pushing you to make a decision.  You're tugged in different directions. And viewers see only part of what's going on.”

"I think Jason made both, a genuine mistake, and a genuine decision. I give him props for ultimately doing what he believed was right for him," she added.

We hope this comforts Jason Mesnick and Molly Malaney? Even if America as a whole doesn't come around, you've got at least one fan in Sheena Stewart.

I don't understand why everyone is so for Melissa. She knew she was going to be broken up with on live TV and wore the ring out there to manipulate America anyway. That girl knows what she wants and it looks to me like she got it. Dancing in the skivvy on live TV.
