Breakup alert! Ali Fedotwosky and Roberto Martinez of The Bachelorette fame have called it quits.
Get the details after the jump!
Today we’re talking about Ali Fedotowsky and fiance Roberto Martinez who you know from season six of The Bachelorette. After being engaged since last year, they’re going their separate ways. Their reps have confirmed the split.
Their rep addressed the public with this statement:
Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez have ended their relationship. As they go through this difficult time, we ask that you respect the couple’s privacy.
If you’ve ever had a bad breakup, you can’t help but feel bad for them. I guess once the magic of their TV relationship wears off, the relationship is normal just like any other. Are we really that surprised that another reality TV couple have split up? How often do these types of romances actually work out anyway? I mean think about it: You put a bunch of attractive men vying for the love of one woman. They wine her and dine her and create a larger than life experience. Then, the cameras start rolling and things become real. It’s a setup for failure. But heck, it makes great TV!
Ali Fedotowsky explained to People last month, “We didn’t meet in the most traditional way. We had a very short courtship and we only knew each other nine weeks before we got engaged. We are still figuring out our lives as individuals.”
Oh well, sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. Best of luck to them both.
