“You can’t be afraid at all of what other people think,” Fedotowsky, 32, tells Us Weekly. “Because at the end of the day its your life and your relationship.”

Fedotowsky also knows what its like to have a failed Bachelor relationship like Ben Higgins. Fedotowsky split with Roberto Martinez after 18 months of dating in 2011, while Higgins, 29, and ex-fiancée Lauren Bushnell called it quits in May. Two months later, Bushnell stepped out with her real estate investor boyfriend Devin Antin.

Higgins told Us Weekly that he’s “not not ready to date” after the split, but Fedotowsky, who shares daughter Molly, 1, with husband Kevin Manno, hopes the Denver native doesn’t find love once again in The Bachelor spotlight.

“A lot of people have thrown out Ben Higgins [as the next Bachelor] and I’ve actually said I don’t think he should,” Fedotowsky, who recently partnered with Nivea, explained. “I think it’s too soon. I think it would be hurtful to Lauren.”
