The media spin has begun, to prepare fans for the big showdown between Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky and Frank Neuschaefer. Next week, we will find out who Ali picks. Will she give the final rose to hot Latino hunk Roberto Martinez or sexy down to earth Chris Lambton? On the AFTRC, Bachelorette Ali will get to face Frank one last time and ask him why he waited so long to tell her about Nicole? Will Frank announce his engagement to Nicole as well?
In a new TV Guide interview with Chris Harrison, the Bachelorette host didn’t hesitate to throw Frank under the bus. The host told TV Guide that Neushchaefer’s decision to leave Fedotowsky for his ex-girlfriend in Chicago “seemed like an escape; an easy way out.”
“He was having a tough time dealing with Ali and the situation so it seemed a little convenient that it all piled on his shoulders and then he bailed,” he told the magazine. “The way it went down doesn’t feel right, or cohesive. It left more questions than answers.” Harrison doesn’t understand why he didn’t mention his ex sooner.
In a separate interview, Deanna Pappas chimed in and said she thought Frank’s apology was sincere and heartfelt. Although she did say the following, “If he was a real man, he could have gone home early on – especially if he was having second guesses and missed his ex girlfriend,” Pappas told UsMagazine.com. “He shouldn’t have done that to Ali and make her fall more and more in love with him.”
I’m not sure if Deanna Pappas would have been so understanding, remember the note that Graham Bunn gave her? If rumors are true, Graham Bunn went back to an old girlfriend as well. Nothing like a reality television show to send you running back to your ex.
Whoever Bachelorette Ali chooses to pick, she sure seems happy in recent magazine photos. Last week, she was photographed buying sexy lingerie and lotion at Victoria Secret in LA. Also, Roberto has applied for his insurance agent license in California and is reportedly going to be based out of Irvine, California. Maybe Roberto and Ali will be shacking up together?
For Chris Lambton, if Bachelorette Ali doesn’t pick him, Mike Fleiss would be a fool not to make him the next Bachelor. Fans are crazy about him. Stay tuned for August 2nd, for the most dramatic rose ceremony ever. Astrochicks can’t wait.
