The Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky is opening up to Ok magazine about her all new weight loss. The photo on the left is the before shot taken on June 22nd, and the photo on the right is Ali today.
The 25-year-old reality star tells the mag her weight went up and down during the taping of the show. “I was always hungry!” Ali tellsOK! of packing on 10 pounds while filming. “I didn’t think much of it, but everyone noticed.
So how did Ali lose the 10 pounds fast? “I am not the person who will be at the gym all the time,” she confesses to OK!. “Usually, I do the treadmill for about 30 minutes, or I will try to do something else.”
Eat healthy 6 days a week, 1 day is cheat day: “I am good during the week, and one day I pig out,” Ali says. “I love pizza from Domino’s or Pizza Hut and a Diet Coke.”
Cook your own food. “I love egg white omelets because I can actually cook the egg whites myself!,” says Ali.
Buy your own food. “I go to the grocery store,” says Ali, “and I will buy the ready-made chicken breasts from the deli counter. I buy four or five at a time, and I’ll have them with a salad.”
Have healthy snacks. “I eat chicken breast as a high-protein snack with some honey mustard or barbecue sauce,” Ali says. “I also love air-popped popcorn.”
Do 30 minute cardio kicks. “I do the treadmill for about 30 minutes,” Ali says. “I [also] love kick-boxing. You can think of your ex-boyfriends while your doing it, like, ‘I HATE YOU!’”
Try a good pair of shoes. “I just got the Sketched Shape-ups sneakers and they really work,” Ali says. “I went for a walk wearing them, and it was really a good workout because I was using so many more muscles in my legs than I usually do.”
The Bachelorette finale episode airs July 26th on ABC.
Frank Neuschaefer broke Ali’s heart last night when he told her he was still in love with his ex-girlfriend Nicole Caruso. ” I did not see this coming,” said Ali, as the two of them cried. She later declared, “I just feel like he’s just the biggest jerk I’ve ever known!”
Even more surprising, the Bachelorette show, which seems to Ali had to say in her PEOPLE blog today about Frank’s actions –
“Now onto the biggest shock of the season for me — Frank leaving. I don’t even know where to begin when trying to explain how I felt when this all went down. I guess I will start by saying that I did not expect it at all. Back in Iceland, I asked Frank about his ex girlfriends. I told him that I could sense that he was not over his ex, so I asked if he still had feeling for the ex that went to Paris with him. He told me that he did not have feelings for her anymore and we moved passed it. My instincts were dead on. I just didn’t have the right ex. I really wish that Frank had been more honest with me. This wasn’t the only time I gave him a chance to be honest. In Turkey, after Justin left, I went up to the guys’ suite, looked each of them in the eye and told them that if any of them had someone back home this was their chance to say something. I flat out asked everyone. Frank said nothing. If Frank has found love, then I really want to be happy for him. However, I have a hard time excusing what he did to me when I gave him so many chances to be honest.
When I first saw Frank I thought maybe he was feeling unsure about the other guys again and that I had to reassure him again. Then I thought maybe something tragic happened and I was super worried for him. I quickly realized that Frank was leaving. I was heartbroken.
After Frank left, I felt defeated. Don’t get me wrong, I was very well aware that I had two unbelievable men left, but I couldn’t help but think that my journey as the Bachelorette wasn’t going to work out. This was not because I thought Frank was the guy for me, but because this was the second guy to leave the show for a girl back home. I remember thinking, “First Justin, now Frank. Who’s next? Can this really work for me?” In addition to that, I didn’t want the last two guys to think they were there by default. I think this was especially emotional for me because it has happened to me before in the past. A guy that I once really cared about left me for an ex
In the end, Frank and I are both better off after what happened. I really cared for him and I always will.”
And when it comes to Frank and Nicole, they are still together. The latest issue of InTouch magazine published the above picture of them kissing. The photo was taken on July 5th and the mag reveals they are both very much in love. The mag also states Frank wanted to inform Ali of his feelings for Nicole earlier, but the producers ignored him, perhaps wanting him to make it farther in the show for a more dramatic exit.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE BACHALORETTE AND FRANK’S ACTIONS?
While the entire world focused solely on the Jake and Vienna reunion showdown that took place on Monday night’s episode of the Bachelorette, a certain eliminated contestant got lost in the shuffle.
Ty Brown, a 31-year-old medical sales rep from Nashville, TN, found himself the latest bachelor to be eliminated by Ali Fedotowsky, right before the hometown visits on the show.
In a new interview with EtOnline, Ty discusses his elimination, who he predicts will win Ali’s heart in the end, and if he’s open to being the next Bachelor.
Excerpts from his interview below –
When Ali let you go, you didn’t seem to be that emotional. Were you more shocked than sad? Or did it sink in later?
Ty Brown: Nobody wants to get let go, especially at that stage in the show. I suppose you are right. I was shocked. At the same time, if I was going to be going home before being the last person there, it was almost relieving because I didn’t have to get my family involved. At the same time, I was disappointed that I went home. She made the decision she made. I had a great time doing it and it was fun. I didn’t get as emotional as people do, but it was overwhelming at the time.
You have always had a music career. How receptive are people now that you have been on “The Bachelorette”?
Ty Brown: It is funny how country music fans accept you. I have been playing around for a long time, but it definitely hasn’t hurt anything. When I got back and we finished the song that I wrote on the show, it was amazing to see how many people jumped on board and were like, “This is a great song. This is a great opportunity. You’ve got a great story with this.” They have been very welcoming. The opportunities I have had because of the show are wonderful. I have met and written with some of the best artists and writers in Nashville.
Do you think your conversation with Ali about your first marriage, and the fact that your family was very traditional, and your ideas of what a wife should be going into that first marriage, raised red flags for her?
Ty Brown: I think you are absolutely right. I think it did raise a lot of questions for her. And I wanted to do address that with her and I did the very next week because I did grow up in a traditional lifestyle. My mom was a school teacher, but she waited until the kids were in school to work. My dad, of course, always worked — sometimes two jobs. My mom cooked dinner every night. I did tell her that I grew up in that traditional lifestyle. Does that mean that is what I am looking for? No. I wanted to get that across to her. It thrills me to see somebody who is so ambitious, who knows what she wants and is not scared to speak up and go get it. Someone who has goals set for themselves. That is very attractive to me. I like that. I was trying to get that across to her and maybe I didn’t do such a great job. I think that may be one of the things she was concerned with.
Which of the four remaining guys do you see with Ali?
Ty Brown: There are things about every one of those guys that I like. If I had to pick one, I think Chris L., in my opinion, is one of the better fits for Ali. He is a good guy. It took them a while to hit it off and really get into good conversations. I didn’t know that, but after watching the show, they had good chemistry and a good time together. They had a lot in common. I think his family life was a little different than most everybody else’s.
Do you think she will actually pick someone?
Ty Brown: I have no idea. I hope she does. I hope she picks someone and they are very happy, but who knows?
If they asked you to be the next “Bachelor,” would you?
Ty Brown: If they ask me to be the next “Bachelor,” I would definitely consider it. I am ready to move on with my life and I don’t have anybody. It would be exciting. After being on the show already, I know it is very difficult.
A rep for Ali Fedotowsky is shutting down rumors she posed topless in webcam pictures some odd years ago.
The story, which was first reported last week, alleged that some topless photos of the Bachelorette star were being shopped around. The photos were said to have been taken back in 2007 when Ali stripped down for an ex-boyfriend. And while some tabloids ran the story this week, Ali’s reps have officially denied it’s Ali in the photos.
Ali has also broken her silence when it comes to the nasty breakup feud raging on between Jake and Vienna. “It’s sad [the split] happened,” Ali tells People.com. “I hope the media stuff dies down and they can focus on moving forward.”
So could this mean a reunion for Ali and Jake? “That’s not going to happen,” says Ali. “I hate to put a damper on everyone’s hopes out there, but no.”
Moving on to the Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi break-up soap opera. Tonight is the highly promoted exploited joint interview of the former engaged couple, during which they will both be sitting down together to discuss what went wrong in their made for TV relationship.
In a preview clip, Vienna, 24, fumes at Jake, who has called her out on her infidelity: “You are the biggest fake liar I’ve ever met in my entire life.”
Jake, 32, however fires back at Vienna, “Who’s the guy you had on Saturday night at the apartment?” The full interview will air tonight on ABC during the new episode of the Bachelorette.
A preview clip of the messiness is below –
TELL US: WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE BACHELORETTE AND THE JAKE & VIENNA INTERVIEW?
The Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowskyis finally breaking her silence on contestant Justin Rego‘s two-timing ways. On Monday night’s episode, Ali had the following to say when confronting Justin: “I came here to find a husband, and you’re f****** with that?!”
But that was then and this is now. Ali seems to be over the whole Justin issue based on her new PEOPLE blog today. Here’s what she had to say about Rated R:
“First off, when Jessica called me, the first thing I said to her was “Are you okay?” I felt so bad for her. I had only known Justin for a matter of weeks; he had betrayed her for years. No woman should ever let a man treat her with disrespect the way Justin did. The reason I didn’t look super upset during the phone call is because I was not going to let him hurt me. I wouldn’t give Justin the satisfaction of thinking he could affect me. I wanted to be strong — for me, for Jessica, and for all the women and girls watching who have been betrayed by a man before.
When I told Justin that he would regret this, I didn’t mean his lack of relationship with me. I meant that he would want a chance to explain himself — not only to me but also to all of you watching. As you all saw, he didn’t do such a great job explaining himself. I guess that is what happens when you’re caught in a lie. That’s all I really have to say about that.”
In other Justin news, Justin, who is pictured above partying with Jersey Shore’sSnooki courtesy of ZackTaylor.ca, is also speaking out on his actions on the show.
In a new interview with ET Canada, Justin attempts to squash the truth rumors that he only went on the show for fame.“In the next year or so I’m actually looking to be a police officer,” he tells ET Canada. “I’m slowly studying it … that’s something I truly am passionate about and I definitely want to get into.”
Justin continues, “No more reality TV,” adding that he “definitely” does not want to be the next Bachelor. “This has been such a rough experience, like it’s kind of scared me away from doing anything. It’s not fun having you’re name dragged through the mud.”
And despite being photographed 3 weeks ago kissing the same ex-girlfriend who called Ali, Justin is now claiming he wants nothing to do with her. “Unfortunately now due to the fact of all this happening and seeing her true nature and true intent I really don’t want to continue any type of relationship with her,” said Justin.
As you can see in the previews from what is to come in the remainder of the season, Frank Neuschafer tells Ali a secret which appears to leave her heartbroken. If you want to know what Frank tells Ali, you can read about that here.
Could Ali Fedotowsky be the next celebritard to be involved in a sex scandal? A new report claims an ex-boyfriend of the Bachelorette star is shopping around nude photos of her.
A source tells ZackTaylor.ca Ali stripped down on webcam for an old “fling” in San Francisco a few years ago. “The unknown guy has been trying to shop around photos of Ali ever since she first appeared on The Bachelor, but only now are the tabloids interested in his extremely high photo rates,” reports the site. Guess only time will tell if these photos do exist.
In other Bachelorette news, nutty contestant Kasey Kahlis speaking out on his recent elimination and the now infamous tattoo. Kasey makes it clear he has zero regrets about his new tatt,”The tattoo’s awesome and would never change it. It is an amazing thing I got for myself. I got it to show who I am no matter where I’m at or who I’m with.”
And does Kasey regret his “singing” on the show? “I’m obviously not a singer. You didn’t see the whole thing. We were playing a writing game. She’d do a line and I’d do a line and then she was like, “You should make up a song.” So I went with it and had fun. Good or bad, everyone loves karaoke, right?”
Moving right along to tonight’s new episode. The two three-timing Justin Regowill be outed to Ali tonight when his girlfriend, Jessica Spillas, decides to place a special phone call to Ali.
Jessica informs Ali of Justin’s cheating ways and even tells her Justin only came on the show to further his wrestling career.
“He assured me that when he got back, we’d start our plans to get married. And I believed him,” says Jessica, adding that Rego told her he was just going on the ABC show solely to further his wrestling career. “He said going on the show would benefit the both of us. He wanted to get into the top three because he’d be well known.”
The question now is why did Jessica turn on Justin? Well it seems while Justin was busy filming the show, Jessica found out Justin had been cheating on her with another blonde named Kimberly Kerekes. This was the straw that broke the camel’s back, causing Jessica to phone Ali.
But it’s not over folks. According to Life&Style magazine, Jessica and Justin are now back together. Yes you read that right. The two were photographed kissing on June 4th in Justin’s Canadian hometown.
Ali Fedotowskygraces this week’s cover of InTouch magazine with the headline, ‘Bachelorette Lies & Betrayal.’ Please note that this story contains some spoilers about the show, so please do not read any further if you do not want to know any spoilers.
The magazine touches on the men that will end up betraying Ali this season on The Bachelorette, case in point Justin Rego, who had not one, but two girlfriends while on the show. The not so big shocker comes when the mag claims the show’s producers might have knowingly set up Ali with unsuitable guys, simply to create drama for the show.
Ali’s mom, Beth Johnson, tells the mag that when it comes to falling in love, Ali has never had a specific physical type. “It doesn’t matter” to Ali what her dates look like. In fact, “Ali has dated guys who are unattractive in other people’s eyes. It is who they are inside that matters!”
Frank kissing girlfriend Nicole Caruso
And it seems the show’s producers decided to take advantage of Ali’s “open — and somewhat needy — nature” by steering her into the arms of more than one unsuitable guy. While it’s been widely reported that wrestler Justin will be sent home for two timing Ali, In Touch also reveals that nice guy manager Frank Neuschafer also has a major secret of his own.
“Frank was the early favorite because he had the first date of the season with Ali, but by the end of the show, women are going to hate him,” Bachelorette insider “Reality” Steve Carbone tells In Touch. According to Steve, Frank has a girlfriend back in Chicago whom he’s “still in love with.” And even though the producers were aware of this, they never warned Ali, 25, thus leaving her heartbroken and humiliated when she found out.
“Ali was left in the dark,” says Steve, who reveals that she went so far as to take Frank to Tahiti as one of her final three — only to have him tell her, in the midst of a super-romantic date, that his heart belongs to Nicole back home. “There was no rose ceremony — he just left,” Steve shares, adding that it was devastating for Ali.
There are however conflicting reports about Frank and this GF. While a previous report claims Frank and Nicole Caruso, 23, were broken up before he went on the show, Star magazine claims Frank was still with Nicole before leaving to do the show. The mag claims he only went on the Bachelorette to try to further his career.
“Frank wants a screenwriting career, and he assured her that he was only going on The Bachelorette for the show business exposure,” a friend of Nicole tells Star. “This whole business about Frank wistfully longing for a former girlfriend seems like a sham. He and Nicole were rock-solid when he left for the show, and I believe they still are. He never had any interest in Ali.”
Just weeks after his run on Dancing With The Stars, former Bachelorstar Jake Pavelka has landed yet another new gig!
UsWeekly reports that Jake, 32, will play a single guy on Drop Dead Diva, a Lifetime series. Jake will reportedly guest star as Toby Davlin, a suitor on a dating show-within-a-show called Finding the One. He will begin taping his scenes on June 18. His episode is titled “Good Grief,” and is set to air Aug. 22.
Jake and his fiance Vienna Girardi (pictured above on June 10) also continue to defy all odds. The couple is still together and happily engaged.
Bachelorette – The fourth episode of this season’s Bachelorette aired last night with Ali Fedotowsky getting down to her final 8. Unfortunately, likable weatherman Jonathan Novack didn’t make the cut. “I feel like you didn’t get a chance to know me,” whispered Jonathan to Ali just before leaving. Jonathan’s elimination wasn’t a big shocker as he just didn’t seem to have a romantic connection with Ali. Also eliminated last night was Jesse Beck. Ali continues her search for love next Monday as she and the final 8 will travel to Iceland.
In a first ever on ABC’s True Beauty, a contestant was eliminated for violating the show’s rules. That unlucky contestant was Regina Villano of Tabernacle, New Jersey. The 22-year-old, who wasn’t in the bottom two, ended up getting the boot for using a cell phone on the show, which is against the show’s rules.
Regina likely saved the show’s villain Liz Parada, 32, from going home. Liz’s behavior, which includes being a sloppy aggressive drunk, continues to turn her fellow housemates against her. There are now seven remaining contestants and the group will have to pose nude on next week’s episode.
TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON THE BACHELORETTE AND TRUE BEAUTY? SHOULD LIZ HAVE BEEN SENT HOME?
