Ali and her Roberto Martinez were pressured to plan the perfect TV wedding, former ‘Bachelorette’ contestant Jesse Csincsak tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively. The stress was just too much for them to handle.
In her first interview since announcing her breakup from Roberto Martinez on Nov. 21, Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky tells People magazine that she dumped Roberto because of their “explosive fights” and different personalites and goals. But former Bachelorette winner Jesse Csincsak — who was briefly engaged to DeAnna Pappas — tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that planning a TV wedding probably played a major role in the end of Ali and Roberto’s relationship.
“When your in a successful relationship, they are trying to pushing wedding stuff on you,” Jesse explains. “They pay for everything. Mike Fleiss personally gets 60 percent of the revenue from wedding. He’s trying to plan a fairtytaly wedding so he can sell it to ABC.”
Because of the network’s pushiness, the relationship becomes more of a business deal. “It gets to both of them,” reveals Jesse. “It makes them fight. It’s stressful. Your relationship becomes a business — and business and relationships don’t mix.”
The spotlight intensifies the stress on The Bachelorette. “The stress is 10 fold on a problem,” says Jesse. “A one scaled [problem between a normal couple] would be a 10 on Bachelor scale.”
If Ali and Roberto ever want to reunite, they are going to have to block out Hollywood. “If they focus on them, they can get back together,” shares Jesse. “They can make changes to better their relationship.”
“Do them. Focus on them,” he advises. “They need to go back to square one and focus on that what they loved about each other from the beginning. If they can make each other laugh and smile, that’s what it’s about at the end of the day.”
