My NEW Video Interview with Ali & Roberto!

I am so incredibly excited to bring you this!  I had the opportunity to interview Ali and Roberto in person today! 


They had just finished doing a great job on "LIVE! with Regis and Kelly".  I and our talented videographer, Frank, went inside the dressing room and got to chat with the happy couple for a few minutes.  Without further ado here's the interview!

Hope you enjoyed watching it as much as I enjoyed talking with the two of them!  They are so in love they burst into song!  You'll also be happy to know, Ali and Roberto are both just as nice off camera as they are on camera.  I hope to bring you many more exciting things with the upcoming season of "Bachelor Pad" so stay tuned.

Hugs, Kisses & Roses,

Jennifer Matarese


Ali & Roberto talk about their new lives together

I took part in a conference call today with Ali, Roberto and Chris!  First, let me say Ali and Roberto are genuinely happy together and in love!  They are so adorable!  I really, really hope those two make it to the alter.  For those of you who were wondering, Ali's ring is 3.3 carats!  Wow.  It's also worth a whopping $50,000.  Very nice.  Roberto chose well. 

Also, Ali was wearing a gown by designer Alberto Makali, and Roberto was dressed by Hugo Boss.  You can view a slideshow of the proposal by clicking the photo below!


Now to the call.  It began with Ali and Roberto, and they were on the phone together.  Roberto said that he knew he was going to propose when Ali said that he was the only guy there.  He knew that she felt certain about him, so that added to his certainty about her.  Looks like letting Chris go early was a very good decision on her part.  Ali was asked when she knew that Roberto was the one.  She said, " I knew for sure with 100% certainty during our last date together, when we were in the rain and everything was so perfect." Aww, how sweet!

Ali & Roberto are ENGAGED!

It's official!  Ali and Roberto are engaged and together!  Thank goodness, the spoilers were wrong!  Wow, some people who will remain nameless were ill informed!


I have some exciting news.  Today, I'll be taking part in a conference call with Chris, Ali, and Roberto!  I will bring you the highlights of that later in the day, with the full transcript of the conversation to follow later.


Also, thank you to all who participated in the live chat last night!  It went great!  You can read the whole transcript right here.  It was so fun to chat with all of you about the show, and watch it with people who are genuinely interested.  It was a blast!  I hope we can do it again for "The Bachelor" and maybe even the "Bachelor Pad" finale"!


Ok, let's get to the show.  We begin with Roberto meeting Ali's parents in Bora Bora.  If you can't make a good impression there, you can't make it anywhere.  Roberto charms the pants off of Ali's mom by telling her how much he loves Ali.

Justin 'Rated R' comments on 'The Men Tell All'

Justin, A.K.A. "Rated R" commented on his facebook fan page today about last night's "The Men Tell All" episode of "The Bachelorette". 
Justin rated r 
I happy to see that he commented, seeing as about an hour of the episode was dedicated purely to him.  Here's what he had to say:
"I would like to start off by saying thank you once again to everyone that has taken the time out of their day to email, BBM or Facebook message me to show support. I will always be very grateful to you for defending me and understanding that you cannot believe everything you see on TV! Positive messages are helping me stay strong!

'The Men Tell All' recap and let's discover 'Stories Behind the Rose'

Wow! 3 whole hours of Bachelorette and Bachelor goodness to break down. I’m going to do this in 2 parts. Part 1 will be “The Men Tell All” and Part 2 will be “Stories Behind the Rose”.

PART 1 - “The Men Tell All”

First, seriously, these are the most exciting guys of the season?! I think not. There was no Craig M, no Justin, and most importantly NO FRANK. Sorry, but I think this episode was totally lame. I usually don’t really look forward to “The Men Tell All”, but I hang in there, because there are usually at least a few juicy tidbits.  I found 1 really good one.

Ali: Frank is "the biggest jerk I've ever known"

Frank.  I really want to like him, but after he broke Ali's heart, I really don't care for him that much.  I respect that he did what he had to do, and how hard it is to hurt someone to do what is in the long run best for both of you, but boy that was hard to watch.

Nicole: 'You need to come home' Frank, on 'The Bachelorette'

Tonight's the night when Frank lowers the boom on our poor Ali.  I feel so bad for her.  Keep in mind the show actually ended a few months ago, and now, she has to relive the whole thing should she choose to watch tonight.  Here's a new preview.  You can get a really good look at Frank's ex-girlfriend Nicole now.
