Ali Fedotowsky ended her engagement to Roberto Martinez from The Bachelorette in 2009. Since their split in November, she has stayed quiet about it because she didn’t want to let people down.
Back in November Ali’s rep confirmed with E! News that, “Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship. As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple’s privacy.”
Their breakup came about four months after Ali Fedotowsky, 27-years old, injured herself during kickboxing which lead to knee surgery before the wedding, which was scheduled for August.
In August Ali Fedotowsky told People magazine, “We had a date set, and that date has now passed. The decision to postpone the wedding was very difficult. I definitely shed some tears.”
Now Ali Fedotowsky is coming out and telling the truth about her breakup with Roberto Martinez, 28-years old, to E! Online. She told E! Online that she doesn’t think there ever was just one moment when they realized they shouldn’t get married.
“We were really trying to make it work, and realizing it wasn’t getting better. We were unhappy more than we were happy, and something needed to change. I didn’t want to let people down. I felt anger from my followers, fans. The pressure was to make sure we did what would make both of us happy.”
“For the first time in my life,” Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky says, “I’m happy with me and who I am and being single.”
Ali Fedotowsky just signed on to host a late night travel show for NBC called “1st Look” which will premiere April 14 following Saturday Night Live.
“I love to travel and discover new places, so being a part of a show like ‘1st Look’ is a dream! I can¹t believe I get to call this my job,” Ali Fedotowsky said.
Marni Kupfer, vice president of Lifestyle Production for NBC Owned Television Station, said in a statement, “We’re thrilled to welcome Ali into the family. We want our viewers to feel like they’ve been invited to go on an adventure with Ali each week as they discover new and exciting places together. Ali’s enthusiastic spirit and ‘1st Look’ style are sure to be a winning combo.”
