    Melissa's boyfriend, Tye Strickland, popped the question over the weekend at Dallas restaurant Cretia's, a source told Access.

    Last week, Melissa made her debut on ABC's "Good Morning America." As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Melissa joined the morning program as a "special contributor" for the summer who was expected to do "maybe eight or 10 pieces."

    Before "GMA" could announce their newest addition, Melissa couldn't contain her excitement on her Twitter page.

    "Guess who just got a job with Good Morning America??? WHAT?!?" she wrote on June 17.

    Melissa made her reality TV debut in 2006 on CMT's "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team." She later joined the cast of "The Bachelor," where she was infamously scorned by Jason Mesnick on national TV for another woman.

    In 2009, she replaced Access Hollywood's Nancy O'Dell on "Dancing With the Stars" after Nancy withdrew due to a knee injury. Melissa finished third behind Gilles Marini and eventual champ Shawn Johnson.

    During her run on "Dancing," Tye was a fixture in the audience cheering her on.
