You Really Believe Ali and Roberto Are in Love?
Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez are really selling the “we’re so in love” idea. Are you buying it?
The Bachelorette just ended on Monday, and yet there are already tons of photos of Ali Fedotowsky and her number one pick, Roberto Martinez, holding hands and acting all couple-y. They’re telling tabloids how happy they are and how a wedding is in the works. You believe it’s real?
Shame on you.
If you do, you’re one of the gullible people who are the reason we still have fake reality shows like The Bachelorette. Do you not remember what happened with Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi? Their breakup happened like clockwork, and ABC got a whole primetime special out of it (not to mention countless magazine covers and “he said, she said” exclusives).
To believe that Ali and Roberto won’t end in a similar fashion is just naïve. You can tell just by reading the Ali ‘s recent comments… This week, she told Us Weekly about the show’s process:
“Some people were really supportive for my quest for love in the beginning and then when they heard the rumors that I was single, so many people turned on me all of a sudden. I thought ‘Oh my goodness, imagine if I didn’t pick anybody, imagine if [Roberto] wasn’t there. I think that’s what happens to a lot of people. The one really isn’t there and maybe they pick just to pick. Because of that pressure… if he wasn’t there I don’t know what I would do. I think I’m supposed to be with him. I’m just… we’re going to make it.”
You have to chuckle when reading this, because Ali is such a terrible liar. Doesn’t she sound so convincing when explaining why she picked Roberto? “I think I’m supposed to be with him… the pressure…pick just to pick…”
She might have well just said, “I was told I couldn’t end the show without choosing someone, so Roberto will do for now until we have our scheduled breakup in a couple of months. It’s written in my contract.”
And yet, in the same conversation she’s talking marriage and kids and her dad just loving Roberto.
Sorry sweetheart, but we’re not falling for this one. Take all the mushy gushy photos you want of you two hugging and kissing. We’ve already put an “It’s a shame to hear about your breakup” card in the mail with your name on it – it should get to you just around the time show execs say it’s time to end this charade.
