Though the pair remain in love, at least according to them, they no longer feel a rush to get married right away. “We’re waiting a little bit,” she told PEOPLE magazine. “We really want to make sure we’re doing this right.”
Ali however makes it clear their decision to wait has nothing to do with a change in feelings towards each other. “Nothing has changed – we’re still just as happy as we were,” adds Ali, 26. “When we were finished [with the show], we were so excited. We were like, ‘Oh, we’re going to get married right away.’ But if you’re rushing because you’re in love, why rush? [Just] wait. You’re going to get married any way. We’re both sort of enjoying life.”
Ali and Roberto are currently living together in San Diego, CA.

In a new interview with UsWeekly magazine, the former Bachelorette star reveals she is dating again, after moving out of the apartment she shared with Ed in his hometown of Chicago for her old apartment in Vancouver.
“It was the last thing I wanted to do,” Jillian, 29, admits. “It’s terrible to leave because the other person doesn’t know what they want,” Jillian tells US, adding that she “fought very hard” to save the relationship.
And despite the fact that Ed, 31, has been spotted flirting with several women in Chicago following their split, Jillian defends him, stating that “he’s not a bad guy.” She adds, “He’s just not quite ready to grow up.”

Rumors of the existence of some topless photos have plagued Ali Fedotowskyfor the past few months.
RadarOnline is now reporting today that the photos do indeed exist, but they were reportedly taken while the Bachelorette star, pictured above with fiance Roberto Martinez, was at the tender age of 15-years-old. Who takes topless pics at age 15?
According to Radar, Ali was a wild child during her younger years, and even experimented with the drug ecstasy while doing some hard partying.
As for the photo, a source tells Radar, “There is a photo of Ali and she’s topless and someone is pouring beer over her breasts.” The source adds that you don’t see the person pouring the beer and that “Ali has her hands over her breasts, but it’s a very salacious photo.”
The source adds that the person who’s in possession of the photo is very nervous and not trying to sell it. The person is reportedly “hiding” the photo. How about just destroying the photo if Ali is indeed underage?
Something about this story seems rather odd. First, taking topless photos at 15 seems odd. Me thinks someone is making up the underage angle to keep their topless photos from getting out. The original story about the topless pics was that Ali took them on webcam a few years ago and sent them to her boyfriend, which seems a lot more believable.
TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE THIS STORY?
UPDATE - Ali has denied this story to the Hollywood Life. “Don’t worry…this is not true. I have no idea where they come up with this stuff,” said the former Bachelorette.
E! News reported weeks ago that the former Bachelorette contestant was hesitant about doing the show, citing that Chris no longer wanted to be on television.
The show host Chris Harrison is now speaking out and tells PEOPLE magazine Lambton has yet to completely rule out the offer.
“There’s an ongoing dialogue,” Harrison tells PEOPLE. “I was just with him this weekend in North Carolina and we talked about the show … it may be right for him, but it may not be.”
Harrison admits only Chris knows what is best for him. “You have to take aside the clamoring of millions of fans [who] want him to be the Bachelor just because they [want] to wish him well,” Harrison says. “But they don’t necessarily know what’s right for him or what’s right for the show.”
In other news, engaged Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky continues to talk about her dream wedding, you know, the wedding that will likely never happen when you take into account the extremely high failure rate of Bachelor couples.
But perhaps things will be different for Ali and her fiance Roberto Martinez. When it comes to her wedding dress, Ali tells UsWeekly, “I’m leaning towards Monique Lhuillier. I like her. I like the flowiness of her dresses.”
And it seems Ali is aware of the low success rate of Bachelor(ette) couples, but she states she and Roberto are very devoted to each other. The two have even recently moved in together in LA. “We don’t even think of it like ‘are we going to make it a month? Are we going to make it six months?'” she said. “When we’re talking about doing things, we’re like ‘babe, we have the rest of our lives, that can wait, we can do that later, we have out whole lives.’ We’re going to make it!”
According to E! online, the former Bachelorettefinalist has rejected ABC’s offer to have him become the next Bachelor. Chris’s reason? He reportedly wants to step away from the spotlight and return to his “normal life.”
In layman’s terms, Chris is not a famewhore, which of course only makes him more likable. However, sources tell E! that the ABC network is not ready to give up on Chris yet.
“The producers really want Chris to be the guy,” says a source. “They’re hoping they can convince him…This definitely isn’t dead yet.” An ABC insider adds that it’s “too soon” to determine who will be the next Bachelor.
Though Chris would have made a great Bachelor, must say this is a smart choice for him, as show has gotten much trashier and phony by the minute.
The 24-year-old Florida native, who had to endure a sexless relationship with Jake, stepped out with new beau John Sala on Tuesday. Usweekly reports the two lovebirds got very cozy during their night out.
Vienna posted on her twitter on Tuesday, “Yes, Im dating and he is amazing guy…Im so Happy!!.” Here’s to hoping we won’t have to read the sordid details of this relationship when it ends, not that we think it won’t last forever or anything.

DeAnna, 28, confirms to the magazine that she is indeed engaged to Stephen Stagliano, who just happens to be the twin brother of former Bachelorette contestant Michael Stagliano. “I was crying, holding his hands, and he showed me the ring. I just nodded, like, ‘Yeah!'” DeAnna tells Us.
UsWeekly is also reporting that former Bachelor contestant Holly Durst is engaged to Michael Stagliano, a contestant on the Bachelorette season of Jillian Harris. Michael proposed to Holly on June 26th.
DeAnna and Holly both met their fiances (the twins) at a party for 2009’s The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special. The two engaged couples plan on having a double wedding in the spring of 2010.
The quartet is also hoping to have their weddings featured on an impending reality show titled Four Better, for Worse.
Continuing with the Bachelor incestuous theme, RadarOnline is now reporting Jesse Csincsak is engaged to former Bachelorcontestant Ann Lueders.
In case you’re wondering, yes this is the same Jesse who used to be engaged to DeAnna Pappas after winning her Bachelorette season in 2008, and yes this is the same Jesse who briefly dated DeAnna’s future sister-in-law to be, Holly Durst in 2009. Whew!
Jesse, who might or might not be a raging famewhore, made sure to invite the RadarOnline cameras to capture every moment of his intimate engagement and also made sure to tell the site he proposed with a “stunning $22,000 custom-made 2 carat princess cut engagement ring designed by Rob Levit of North Eastern Ohio-based Levit Jewelers Inc.”
And in case you’re asking yourself, who the heck is Ann Lueders? Well you’re not alone. A quick search however shows Ann was on the Bachelor season 13 with Jason Mesnick. She was however eliminated the first night.
According to the site, Rachel sent one of Jake’s friends an email asking to be set up with the newly-single former pilot. But it seems Jake wasn’t too keen on dating the Celebrity Rehab4 cast member.
“Jake thinks she’s probably a ‘nice girl’ but isn’t looking to date anytime soon,” the source said. As for what Jake wants in a woman, he jokingly tells UsWeekly he likes “blondes, brunettes, redheads or any combination.”
Jake adds, “I’m just looking for a sweetheart. That’s the biggest thing. I’m looking for a girl that has a really big heart.” Getting into another relationship is however not on Jake’s radar at the moment. “You know what, being single sometimes isn’t a bad thing. It gives you time to worry about you and work on yourself.”
In other news, Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky and fiance Roberto Martinezare still going strong an entire week after their show ended. For those not familiar with the show, a week in Bachelor/Bachelorette couple history is equivalent to about a year month in ‘real life.’
The two have even moved into their new place in San Diego, CA. Ali twitted, “All moved into our place in San Diego- minus the furniture. So excited to decorate our home together”.
And as for their wedding, you know since they are engaged and all, the two are wanting to tie the knot by next summer and are open to doing it on national television.
“We’re definitely open to that idea,” Roberto said. “The money we can save on that, we could use to invest in our lives. You know what? It’d be kind of cool to share that moment.”
Roberto then got on one knee and proposed to an accepting Ali, which seemed like a traditional ending for the ABC hit show. The surprise of the night however came when Ali, 25, told finalist Chris Lambton, a 33-year-old contractor from Cape Cod, Mass., that she was in love with Roberto — just before the two were supposed to go on their final date, definitely a first in the show’s history.
“I’m in love with somebody else. I have to let you go here and not wait until tomorrow. This wasn’t an easy decision. It was really hard. I just didn’t want to put you through tomorrow because I know that’s going to be so hard,” said Ali to Chris.
Roberto, 26, had longed been the front runner of the show from the start, after receiving the first impression rose from Ali. Oddly enough, this is the first time in the show’s history that the person who received the first impression rose came out the winner.
“I love Roberto,” gushed Ali. “I love him. I’ve never ever in my whole life felt this good in a relationship.”
Ali and Roberto also appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Live show Monday night, during which Ali revealed she and Roberto would like to walk down the aisle “in the spring” of next year.
Now that the show is over, the question on everyone’s minds is who will be the next Bachelor? It has been rumored that Ty Brown from this Bachelorette season was being considered, but according to the show insider, Reality Steve, ABC would like Chris Lambton for the upcoming season.
Reality Steve reported yesterday that Chris, 33, has been offered the next Bachelor spot and that he will likely accept. The official announcement will come from ABC any day now.
