Former reality TV star Ali Fedotowsky chose insurance agent Roberto Martinez in the finale of ABC’s Bachelorette Season 6. She enthusiastically accepted Roberto’s Bora-Bora, Tahiti proposal in 2010 after a whirlwind nine week courtship.
This week, on Monday, she surprised some of us, but not all of us, with her engagement break-up announcement. Ali and Roberto had been living together in his San Diego hometown. They’ve been an engaged couple for 18 months.
Before the split announcement, rumors were spreading that they hadn’t been happy together for some time, but in her typical Pollyanna style, Ali essentially denied the rumors. Just this past summer she blamed their wedding postponement on her knee injury. Then in October, Ali told People Magazine that, “In my mind, Roberto is my husband. At this point we’re not planning a wedding. Does that mean we’re fighting? No. Does that mean we’re miserable? Absolutely not! We’re happy where we are.” Up till Monday we’d thought she’d still been looking forward to planning a spectacular wedding. And then we got the news. It was over.
Now we hear that Ali is really is very unhappy. Apparently she’s having trouble accepting the loss of this relationship. Perhaps she’s realized she hasn’t known thirty-eight year old Roberto near long enough for a lifetime commitment. Better a break-up now than a divorce later.
Ali has a show in the works with the Style Network, while Martinez is back in the insurance business.
He’s a hunk and she’s gorgeous. I’m thinking they won’t be lonely long. What do you think is in the cards for one of our favorite Bachelorette’s?
