Ali Fedotowsky Says She ‘Cried Her Eyes Out’ After Reading Comments on Her Blog

Setting the record straight. Ali Fedotowsky said she broke down in tears after reading comments fans left on her recent blog post, where she admitted to having people “help” get through her to-do list.

“I just, like, cried my eyes out reading some comments on my blog,” she said in her Instagram Stories video on Friday, June 21. “I’m gonna try not to cry in this because I don’t want to.”

On The Bachelorette alum’s blog Ali Luvs, Fedotowsky revealed her secret to getting her daily tasks done in a post titled “I Have Help — And Gasp, Even a Nanny!” Fedotowsky said on her Instagram Stories the post was intended to inform fans she had help, “even though it looks like I’m doing it all on social media.” She noted it was not her intention to make readers think “they should be doing” what she has done.

In the blog entry, Fedotowsky admitted that she does not “run this website, work on a tv show, be a good wife, and take care of my two young children all by myself.”

“I remember when I first brought it up I was terrified,” the 34-year-old said of hiring a nanny to care for her children with husband, Kevin Manno. “I was so sure that many of you would think I was just a terrible mother for having help. Why can’t I do it on my own? Why do I need someone to help raise my children? These are toxic things to think and worse to say.”

Fedotowsky shared that her nanny, Jessica, was partly hired because of her blog site, adding: “Some of you may know this and some of you may not but running this website is a full-time job. It’s more than a full-time job!”

Later in the post, the former E! News correspondent admitted to hiring a “part-time employee,” Madi, to help run her website. “She helps me do lots of things like come up with content ideas, sends out emails, adds some links to items I talk about in my blog, adds photos to my blog post, and most importantly edits all of my blog posts,” she shared.

Fedotowsky also confessed to hiring a photographer for her photos and flying in family to care for her children when needed, among other things.

While Fedotowsky aimed to shed light on how having help has benefitted her, not all were amused by the candid post. One commenter wrote how there was “something that just does not come off natural or sincere” about the post, and another fan said they “found myself shaking my head” after reading the blog entry. A third reader said it was “not realistic for the vast majority of moms to afford the help you say we must have,” whereas another person argued the TV personality didn’t “need a 8 paragraph blog post to justify getting help.”

Fedotowsky and Mannos, 35, wed in 2017. They share daughter Molly, 2, and son Riley, 12 months.
