Melissa Rycroft is Rooting for Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski

It's been pretty much confirmed that Ed Swiderski slept with Lindsey Johnson - and tried to bed Bethany Steffen - just a few days after he proposed to Jillian Harris on The Bachelorette.

But Harris (either loyal or blissfully ignorant) is sticking by her man.

So is Melissa Rycroft, Jillian's Bachelor competitor and friend. When asked about her pal and her shady fiance, Rycroft told Us Weekly:

"She is doing really well. Her and Ed are happy, and I know she is going to become a U.S. citizen. She's moving to Chicago [where Swiderski lives]."

So, does this mean Melissa thinks Jillian and Ed are bound for the altar?

"I absolutely do," she said. "I know they love each other, and I know they are planning a wedding, and I know she wants to marry him. I hope it works out for them."
