EXCLUSIVE PICS! Forever? Ha! Ali, You’re Only Roberto’s Flavor Of The Month, Says Jilted Ex-GF

Posted Fri, August 6, 2010 6:11pm EST

Roberto Martinez’s ex-girlfriend, Gabrielle Ortiz, dishes to HollywoodLife.com about her failed relationship with the now-engaged Bachelorette star and offers advice to his fiancée Ali Fedotowsky.

When Gabrielle Ortiz first met Roberto Martinez, she was captivated by his charm. After seeing Gaby perform at Disney World, the 26-year-old Floridian insurance agent pursued Gaby, 22, relentlessly over Facebook until she agreed to go out with him.

Their relationship was moving quickly — and wonderfully — until out of the blue one day Roberto told Gaby he was moving to South Carolina. They agreed to stay in touch and to keep the relationship open-ended…but then Roberto disappeared completely.

Gaby thought something terrible had happened to her new love, and anxiously tried to find him. She searched in vain until a friend called her after the first episode of this season’s Bachelorette aired and she discovered Roberto was starring on the ABC series and was out to win Ali Fedotowsky’s heart. Gaby was left broken-hearted, embarrassed and hurt, and couldn’t believe someone who initially seemed so charming could be such a jerk.

Now, for the first time since The Bachelorette’s July finale, Gaby opens up to HollywoodLife.com about her relationship with Roberto and warns Ali about the guy who’s just “too good to be true.”

HL: When did you and Roberto meet?
GO: We met in December ’09. I was working at Disney World and he was one of the guests. He saw me performing and found me on Facebook. He said, ‘I recognized your smile.’ He totally pursued me.

HL: When did you become official?
GO: We started officially dating in January. We were talking on the phone for a while and finally got together. On our third date he said he was going to move to South Carolina. We decided not to do a long distance relationship, but we wanted to keep talking.

HL: And then he disappeared to be on The Bachelorette?
GO: He didn’t say anything about it. He never told me, but I know he was allowed to because he told some of his friends. I was out of town with my family and we kept talking over the phone and texting; I came back from vacation and he never responded. I called him and his phone
was disconnected. I checked his Facebook and it had been deleted. I was scared about what happened to him. I thought he was missing…he disappeared out of nowhere.

HL: How did you find out he was on The Bachelorette?
GO: One of his friends called me. I only watched the first episode because I was shocked. I didn’t want to see anything else. I refused to put myself through that humiliation. We were acting like we were in a relationship and now here he is marrying someone else.

HL: What was your first reaction when you saw him on the show?
GO: I was happy he was okay, and then I just started crying. I felt so little. I thought I meant something to him.

HL: When he was wooing Ali, did he do the same things he did to woo you?
GO: Yes! He’s a charmer. He did whatever he could to get me to fall for him. He kept saying, ‘I like you. I want to be with you.’ He’s the one who wanted the relationship. He would cook for me. He would stop in the middle of the street and kiss me. He treated me like a princess. I’m sure he’s the same way with Ali.

HL: Yikes. Do you think he and Ali will last…or is this just how he is with every girl?
GO: I don’t know. I really don’t know. He’s too good to be true. I hope they do because Ali deserves a good man. She doesn’t deserve to be hurt. I don’t want to say anything bad. I won’t destroy their relationship…but I would love for him to call me and apologize for what he did.

HL: Do you have any advice for Ali about Roberto?
GO: He’s very quiet. He’s very mysterious. He won’t tell you his secrets. I would tell her to keep her guard. He’ll have secrets and not tell her.

gaby, stop embarrassing yourself. you had three dates with him. he said he was moving (he was) and didn’t want to keep things going. what else did he owe you? he could’ve known in three dates that you weren’t the girl for him, and why drag things on. also, sometimes people cut communications with someone when that other person isn’t moving on and it’s the only way to make them do it- by stopping talking with them so they aren’t still holding out hope for something. you should be thanking him, not stabbing him in the back for treating you well on your three dates.

I agree with everyone else, stop embarrassing yourself, no agas el rediculo, you just want fame and ofcourse someone is going to give you that attention to put up your story because people just like to gossip.
3 dates is nothing move on, stop winning.. if he didnt want to call you he obviously wanted to get away from you. why should he give you any reasons? dumb ass

not that into you

Its simple. He didn’t see her as a girlfriend. He may have pursued her, based on some initial attraction, but she blew it on the date. Where, we don’t know but He’s just not into you honey. He moves, says no long distance relationship, we’ll keep in touch, he changes his phone number.. How many more clues does this girl need??? Move on, he owes you nothing and you’re making yourself look desparate.

Gaby sounds like a loser. 3 dates and he moves away. He had the decency to tell her he was moving on. Guess Gaby’s had a little too much to drink, and then decided to cash in.

You have GOT to be kidding me. Why are you giving this girl any attention at all? She admits they weren’t in a long distance relationship when he lived in South Carolina, she was NOT his girlfriend. So he stopped calling her, who cares? She wasn’t his girlfriend, he had zero obligation to call her.

This is hilarious and I know Ali is laughing about it.

This Gaby girl had just 3 dates with Roberto and she was his girlfriend and in a relationship with him????? She has a screw loose if that is the case. I know you can really like someone after a first date etc. but 3 dates does not a relationship or a committment make. Get real!!!

I agree. Most mature people would not call someone boyfriend/girlfriend and being in a relationship, unless exclusively dating for a few months or longer. A couple of dates was obviously long enough for Roberto to realize it was not going to go anywhere. We’ve all had those dates.

Perhaps also, Gaby was hounding him and thus he needed to change his number, etc. Girls generally have a far different story of their dating situations than the guys do. That she is actually coming forth with this story as if she were really significant in his life, shows her true character and immaturity.
