Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky may have been crying tears of joy on last night’s finale, but she’s had a rough time since the taping has ended.
As with every season, the couple at the end of the show has to sign confidentiality agreements that they won’t give up any information about who won. So she had to keep her engagement to Roberto Martinez a secret for a couple months.
She recalled one time she and Roberto tried to go away to Palm Springs. She told Access Hollywood, “We had a weekend in Palm Springs together and I actually got followed by the paparazzi, two hours out there from LA. I went to the police station and asked them to help me and they wouldn’t help me. They’re like, ‘It’s the paparazzi, there’s nothing we can do. It’s a free country.’”
Ali continued about another experience, saying, “I was going to visit him and I was being followed by like, eight cars and I pulled over to the side of the road and I started crying and I called him.”
“It’s so hard not to be there for those moments,” Roberto added.
But now the hard part is over, and the two love birds are already thinking about their upcoming nuptials—and they are completely opposed to their wedding being televised.
“We’ve talked about that,” Ali confirmed. “At first we were like, ‘No!’ And then we thought about [it]. A wedding’s expensive and if ABC would sort of take care of us we could take that money and invest it in our children and our home and things that are going to affect our every day life… Why invest that in one day when we can invest that in our lives.”
Roberto added, “I agree with her. If we can [save that] money or put it into or house or something else, I think that’s a smart call,” he said. “Plus, I’ve got a big family [and that gets] expensive.”
Of course they’re going to want it televised because it’s paid for! Do you think Ali and Roberto will even make it that far? Or are they just another Jake and Vienna in the making.
