Jillian Harris and Ed Swiderski found love this season on The Bachelorette, and they're both preparing to open their hearts once more — to a dog! "Ed and I plan on adopting a rescue as soon as we settle into a place," Harris, who is getting ready to move to Chicago to be with Swiderski, tells PEOPLE Pets.

"My parents put her under the tree at Christmastime when I was about 5," Harris recalls. "We had her for 12 years and she was truly my BFF. We did everything together!" The Vancouver native (and only child) would dress her pup in knit sweaters and take her on road trips. "It was a big joke in the family that she was the other child," Harris says of Sweets, who passed away after being hit by a car during a thunderstorm in 1993.

Reality Romances Gone WrongVia: Access Hollywood
Jason Mesnick and Melissa Rycroft – Jason became the fan favorite after being rejected by “Bachelorette” DeAnna Pappas, and was then chosen to become the next “Bachelor” where he could try to control his own love destiny. But oh, how perceptions quickly change. The single father was left with two lucky ladies during the season finale, and ultimately chose Texas native Melissa Rycroft. During a tumultuous “After The Rose” show, Jason dropped a bomb on Melissa — and the viewers — by dumping her on national television. Melissa was shocked, but the real jaw-dropper came when Jason asked for a second chance with runner-up Molly Malaney. After getting dumped, Melissa came back swinging with a successful stint on the ABC series “Dancing With the Stars.” Jason and Molly are still going strong, and Melissa recently got engaged to insurance agent Tye Strickland. This reality romance went sour, but looks like everything turned out for the best!
Deanna Pappas' ex, Jesse, is just fine.
The romance may not have lasted, but that isn’t stopping “Bachelorette” winner Jesse Csincsak from making big plans.
The one-time Amherst resident and Marion L. Steele High grad will bring a few of his fellow “Bachelor” contestants to Lorain next month for a fundraising dinner to generate money for a team of Olympic snowboarding hopefuls who trained at Csincsak’s Breckinridge, Colorado-based nonprofit J-SAK Snowboarding Inc.

Chris Harrison: I Don't Want to Know if Ed's Cheating on Jillian
HOLLYWOOD, Calif. — Chris Harrison says he's unlike the rest of the world — he doesn't want to know if Ed Swiderski cheated on his new fiancé, "Bachelorette" Jillian Harris.
"I didn't ask her because I don't want to know," the ABC reality show host told Us Weekly of his recent conversation with Harris.
Rumors about the couple's future began swirling last week when a pair of women stepped forward and claimed to Us that Swiderski was up to no good. One such allegation is that Swiderski slept with his former girlfriend, Lindsey Johnson, just eight days after he popped the question to Harris on the "Bachelorette" finale.
On the following day, Swiderski is said to have texted a second female named Bethany Steffen to "bring beer and condoms" over to his place. Full article here.
