‘Bachelorette’ Ali Fedotowsky and beau Roberto Martinez are recovering from a kayaking accident in La Jolla on Sunday in which she was knocked overboard.

‘Ali and Roberto had a little mishap when their kayak capsized this weekend,’ her rep told Us Magazine. ‘Ali was taken to the hospital and had five staples put in her head. Roberto was fantastic — he kept her calm and took great care of her. She is doing fine and actually off to work this morning.’


‘Thanks so much everyone for your concern. Big headache, but managed to hide staples w/hair part and I am back at work this morning :)’ the 26-year-old on-air correspondent for Fox 5 San Diego tweeted.

‘I think I freaked out more when when the doctor cut my hair rather than when he put staples into my head. Lol. Very thankful to be ok :),’ Fedotowsky added. ‘[But I] made it out of the ER w/staples in my head & a little less hair after falling out of a kayak. Scary stuff. Wearing a helmet next time.’

The former bachelorette is gearing up to co-host a ‘The View’-style talk show on Style Network with actress Vivica A. Fox, former reality television maven Adrianne Curry and ‘Project Runway’ designer Nick Verreos.

The show will ‘tackle anything and everything that’s of interest to Style viewers. From exciting in-studio guests to product demos, makeover segments, field segments and a studio audience, this new daily show will be just as Style-ish as it is informative and fun,’ according to a press release.

Wishes for a speedy recovery to our favorite bachelorette, because when last we checked, staples weren’t en vogue.
