'Bachelorette' Ali Fedotowsky glad guys realized Frank did wrong

The Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky is happy her rejected bachelors don't agree with the way Frank Neuschaefer handled his lingering feelings for former girlfriend Nicole Caruso, which eventually caused him to dump Fedotowsky and leave the ABC reality dating show after determining he and Caruso still had feelings for each other.
"I'm glad that some of the guys realized that what Frank did was wrong and slightly selfish," Fedotowsky wrote in her People blog about the men's comments during Monday night's broadcast of her season's The Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special.
"That says a lot about my guys, because they are friends with Frank and it takes strength to call a friend out when they are wrong. In the end, I think we are all on the same page. Frank is a good guy who made some poor choices to stay on the show."
"Watching what Kirk had to say during Men Tell All was really touching," Fedotowsky wrote of DeWindt's comments, which included an admission that he had fallen in love with her and been considering proposing if she had selected him as her final suitor.
"After the guys leave during the show, I don't really have time to reflect on how they must be feeling since I have to focus on the guys I have left. Therefore, it was hard to see how hurt Kirk felt after he left the show. I have so much respect for Kirk and I really hope he find an amazing woman to share his life with."
In addition, The Bachelorette star also expressed surprise that Justin Rego -- who left the show after she learned he had secretly had two girlfriends back home and had claimed he was only going on the show to promote his wrestling career -- followed through on his prior pledge to not participate in The Men Tell All special.
"I am surprised that Justin didn't show up. Honestly, I think this was his opportunity to finally explain himself after thinking about what happened. If I were Justin, I would have come to the Men Tell All in a spandex 'Rated-R' suit and really played up the whole wrestler/villain thing," she wrote.
"At the very least, that could have entertained us, plus given him what he always wanted -- publicity. Ha ha ha! It was also interesting to hear Jessie talk about how everything came to her attention regarding the Justin thing. I never really knew how this all came about. Such a small world."
