Former “Bachelor” contestant and “Bachelorette” star, Ali Fedotowsky is in the news for a gift she received from her new boyfriend, Kevin Manno. She shared that when they were hiking, she got an unusual, but strangely romantic present from him.
“We were on a hike on Mulholland, and we saw this dog that looked like a panda, so we started calling it ‘Pand-Dog-Bear.’ So, we started making jokes about it. And for a gift he got a stuffed dog animal, and a stuffed panda animal,” Ali said. ‘He decapitated them both, actually sewed the heads onto the other bodies, and he gave me one, and he kept the other. And they are now our ‘Pand-Dog-Bears’!”
Ali thought Kevin’s gift was the “sweetest” gesture ever.
“So many women talk about the gifts that they get, and they’re like, ‘Flowers!’ ‘Chocolates!’ ” Ali added. “And I’m like, ‘No! A decapitated stuffed animal is real love!’ It was the sweetest, most romantic gift that I have ever received.”
Ali met Kevin through the producer of her show, “1st Look.” The two of them have reportedly been good friends for quite some time and they eventually became romantically involved.
Ali Fedotowsky will play a small role in the Woody Allen film, “Blue Jasmine.” She’s managed to maintain a professional career in the public eye since her stint on “The Bachelorette” in 2010.
