The Bachelorette: Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez Reflect on their Whirlwind Year

Just a year ago, Ali Fedotowsky was coming home after her shocking decision to leave in the middle of ABC’s The Bachelor, upset that she hadn’t found the love she was looking for. But now, after a second chance to find Mr. Right, The Bachelorette is going into 2011 not only engaged to fiance, Roberto Martinez, but very grateful for him being there to fulfill the void she had in her life.

“A year ago I had just gotten home from filming The Bachelor,” Fedotowsky recalled in an interview with People magazine.

“I was like, ‘I don’t have love. This sucks,’” Ali told the magazine. “I bought a really expensive pair of boots that cost as much as my rent to make me feel better.

“Last year I was filling a void with boots, and this year I have Roberto,” said The Bachelorette.

And 2010 also brought Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez (and those boots) a new place to call home. Just weeks ago the couple moved into their new apartment and wasted no time getting it ready for their first Christmas together, which also meant decorating their first Christmas tree.

“It’s decorated with silver and red balls and little fairies,” said Ali. “I love this collection from Hallmark and every year they come out with a new fairy and I put them on the tree.”

Sounds like Roberto didn’t have much say in this year’s tree, but next year…

“I want to do a major league baseball theme,” Roberto said, laughing. “No, whatever makes her happy is fine with me.”

As for their relationship, Roberto is also thankful that he’s finally found that special someone in Ali.

“Last year I was single, missing that piece in my life,” Roberto told People. “Now I have it. I’m appreciative of that.”
