It was no big secret on last season ofÂ ABC‘sÂ The Bachelor that Ali Fedotowsky wasn’t fond of Vienna Girardi. Since Girardi ended up with Jake Pavelka’s heart and Fedotowsky earned herself a new TV gig asÂ The Bachelorette,Â everything seems to be water under the bridge between the two ladies. Chris Harrison, host of both reality dating shows, tells Us Weekly that the feud between Girardi and Fedotowsky is a thing of the past…
Things seem to be peachy keen between formerÂ Bachelor rivals, Ali Fedotowsky and Vienna Girardi. When competing against one another for Jake Pavelka’s heart, the two women were at each other’s throats constantly, but in the months since the show filmed, things seemed to have settled down. According to Chris Harrison, host ofÂ The Bachelor andÂ The Bachelorette, there is no more drama between the two women. At Monday night’s taping ofÂ ABC‘sÂ Dancing With the Stars, when Fedotowsky saw Girardi, she gave her a hug and said hello. “That’s one of the ways Ali has grown as a person,” Harrison says about Fedotowsky burying the hatchet.
During their time onÂ The Bachelor, Fedotowsky was outspoken about her general dislike and distrust of Girardi, but Chris Harrison says AliÂ ”regretted some of that,” He adds, “I get it. Look, in the heat of the moment, on the show, you say some things, you regret some things, there are some things you look back and might not do and that was one of them. She apologized as much for that.”Â The Bachelor andÂ The Bachelorette host says that these days Fedotowsky is “so happy for Jake,” adding,Â ”She realizes now that it wasn’t meant to be, she wasn’t supposed to be with Jake.”
As for Vienna Girardi, Harrison thinks her reputation asÂ The Bachelor‘s villain was undeserved. “That’s one thing I’ve learned in 8 years, 20 seasons, who am I to judge? Who am I to tell Jake Vienna’s not right for him when he’s sitting there happy in love? Really? How presumptuous and arrogant of me would that be to tell him I’m right and he’s wrong?” Harrison says.
