Not only did Melissa get swept from her embarrassing nationally viewed break-up to triumph as a last minute replacement on ABC's Dancing With The Stars (DWTS), she came in third place and vowed DWTS judges, fellow contestants and fans.
She also won a whole new set of fans who loved her sweetness and beauty.
During all the turmoil in Melissa's life, she turned for comfort to a long time friend and Dallas native Tye Strickland to help her get through a difficult time. In fact, Tye was in Melissa life to help her recover from the break-up with Jason which Melissa discussed with Ellen when she appeared on her show right after Jason announced his relationship with Molly.
