Ali Fedotowsky has already been betrayed on The Bachelorette this season. Fortunately, Rated R (Justin Rego) and his cheating ways were exposed relatively early.
Unfortunately, she won't be so lucky with Frank Neuschaefer, one of her final three ... or the producers of the ABC reality series, who set her up for heartbreak.
That's according to In Touch Weekly, yes. But there's something to it.
By now, whether you read The Bachelorette spoilers or not, you've likely seen previews for next week and know that Frank is about to drop a bomb on our girl.
That bomb is his ex-girlfriend, Nicole Caruso, with whom he's reunited after blatantly ditching Ali despite wooing her all these weeks ... it's simply heartbreaking.
Even more so? That the producers were in on it.
Monday on The Bachelorette, Frank Neuschaefer will break Ali's heart/
According to reports, Frank didn't exactly pull a Justin and use Ali Fedotowsky for publicity. He really liked her, but genuinely loved Nicole and wanted to reconcile.
“Frank didn’t think they would fall in love,” a source tells In Touch. “He followed his heart and did what was best for him - and ultimately what’s best for Ali, too.”
He considered Ali his girlfriend, says a source, and when producers refused to let him break up with Ali properly, they set the star up for even more heartbreak.
“They betrayed her,” says the source.
How? That remains to be seen. But months after that fateful night in Tahiti, Frank and Nicole were seen on a romantic date in Chicago. Follow the jump to see:
Ali who? Frank puts the moves on Nicole Caruso.
