We are now getting a first look at Ali Fedotowsky as the newest Bachelorette on the block. ABC has released some press photos of the 25 year old formerBachelor contestant.
According to numerous reports, Ali started filming her season two weeks ago. The two-hour premiere of The Bachelorette will debut on ABC Monday, May 24 from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. ET.
It’s safe to say ABC is trying to project Ali as the girl next door by having her wear a pair of sneakers with her dress; allrighty then. More on the press release below -
“Ali, 25, has been a fan favorite from the moment she stepped out of the limo with her sexy raspy voice and a peacock feather to meet Jake Pavelka on the last season of The Bachelor. She became the front-runner for Jake’s heart, but instead they found themselves in a heartbreaking situation when she made a gut-wrenching decision to choose a job she loved over the man she loved. Ali made the surprising safe choice to go back to work, but regretted it immediately.
But it’s not too late for Ali now. Admitting that she made one of the biggest mistakes of her life, she has let go of everything this time her apartment, her job, her stability to really make a life-changing commitment to put her heart first.”

The Bachelor’s Jake Pavelka cheating scandal refuses to go away, as his ex-girlfriend Tanya Douglas has now given an exclusive paid interview to Life&Style magazine.
In the latest issue of Life&Style, Tanya reveals that Jake only did the Bachelor for money and that he professed his love to her after proposing to Vienna Girardion the show.
Tanya tells Life & Style that Jake only did the show for the money, saying he’s obsessed with being on TV. Tanya also claims Jake was still in love with her when he went on the show and even wanted her to be a contestant! “I don’t think he has any idea what he wants except to be on TV,” says Tanya.
Tanya,25, says she first met Jake in July 2008 and the two quickly became friends. They became romantically involved once Jake left The Bachelorette, and their romance was still going strong when Jake got a call to appear on The Bachelor. At first, Tanya claims Jake didn’t want to be on the show. “He said, ‘Everything I was looking for I’ve found in you,’” she says. However he eventually decided to do it due to financial problems he was experiencing. Jake told Tanya he would receive $500,000 to do the show.
“Maybe I can persuade the producers to let you be on the show and be one of the 25 contestants, and then it’s rigged for me the whole time, and in the end we can still be together and have the money,” is what Tanya claims Jake told her.
The cheating accusation comes to play when Jake began contacting Tanya just days after he proposed to Vienna back in November. And then in December, Jake told Tanya he was still in love with her despite having a fiance. “He said over the phone, ‘Ever since that day I saw you get on that plane in Asheville, I’ve never loved anyone more.’”
“Vienna is being lied to,” Tanya states. “The person Jake is on TV is a different person than when he was with me.”

Good news for ABC! Their decision to thrown in one or two random controversial reality stars in the mix of their new season of Dancing With The Stars is drastically paying off.
Monday night’s premiere episode was the highest rated episode ever for the DWTS series. The two hour debut averaged over 23.9 million total viewers. This is a drastic increase compared to the 17.5 million viewers that watched last season’s debut.
And for those who missed the premiere episode, ABC has decided to rebroadcast it this Saturday at 8:00/7:00c.
In other DWTS news, Kate Gosselin continues to be the center of negative media attention. First, UsWeekly posted a story stating that the Jon & Kate Plus 8 mom was a total nervous wreck backstage. Kate, who scored the night’s third lowest score looked “so nervous the entire time,” reveals an onlooker.
A dancing expert also reveals to UsWeekly that Kate will likely be the first one voted off. The NYPost is also reporting that Kate continues to be a diva on the set of the show, and that she is always late for hair and makeup.
“The staff has warned her and lectured her about being late, but Kate just gets angry and blows them off,” says the source. “No one wants to deal with her.”
UsWeekly also reports that though The Bachelor’s Vienna Girardi sat in the audience with fiance Jake Pavelka‘s parents, she paid zero attention to them. “They did not speak at all or interact — it was very noticeable to me,” says a witness.
Also sitting with Vienna was former Bachelor contestant Gia Allemand, whom Vienna chatted with all night.
First TMZ reported Rozlyn Papa of the Bachelor was allegedly the woman on a 15 second sex tape clip that hit the internet this week. We also reported the story during which we posted a screen shot of the lady from the tape, giving the opinion that she looked nothing like Rozlyn.
Well turns out Rozlyn is indeed not the woman on the tape. Rozlyn’s lawyer contacted TMZ to let them know the woman on the tape is a porn star who goes by the name of Lucy Anne and that the video posted was from a 2004 porn video. The woman actually bears a bit of a resemblance to Rozlyn in the above photo, but not so much in the tape.
Also coming to Rozlyn’s defense is the male porn star on the tape. Popular porn star Lexington Steeletells E! News he is the man in the video and that the woman on the tape is a porn star named Lucy from the Czech Republic.
“I feel for Rozlyn, because that is not her,” says Steele. “The girl in the video is from the Czech Republic, all of the girls in this release were shot on location in Prague. That girl has never traveled to the United States of America.”
Unfortunately for Rozlyn, it seems there might be a real sex tape of her out there as she has still yet to publicly deny the existence of such tapes.
The reported sex tape of the Bachelor’s Rozlyn Papa has allegedly hit the web, reports TMZ.
The short 15 second tape is suppose to be a preview of what is to come from Rozlyn’s reported multiple sex tapes. The short tape features a woman resembling Rozlyn performing a sexual act on a gentleman.
The tape popped up on the website Pornhub.com.
I have seen the tape and the women looks nothing like Rozlyn in my opinion. The only resemblance the woman on the tape has to Rozlyn is her hair color. The woman on the tape also has no implants, though the people behind the tape are claiming it’s Rozlyn pre-breast implants.
We managed to get a safe screen shot of the tape, and that is posted below. You be the judge. Unfortunately for Rozlyn, she has yet to deny having any sex tapes, and her rep’s comment that they have “no knowledge of any tape” leads one to believe there is a sex tape out there of Rozlyn, and unfortunately now anyone can release a tape claiming it’s her.
TELL US – IS THE WOMAN ON THE TAPE ROZLYN?
UPDATE: As suspected, the woman on the tape is not Rozlyn but a porn star who goes by the name of Lucy Annereports TMZ. And the video posted is from a 2004 porn video.
