Former Bachelorette lovebirds Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez recently split up after an 18-month engagement, but may be back together just like that.
They allegedly hooked up at Ashley Hebert’s wedding.
Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum married in Pasadena, Calif. on December 1, with fellow reality stars Ali and Roberto in attendance, among many others.
One witness says the attractive two were “inseparable.”
Indeed, Roberto moved tables just to sit next to Ali.
“They started talking again a month ago,” a pal says.

The first photos of Adam Lanza have been released, along with more information on the 20-year-old responsible for the Connecticut school shooting massacre yesterday.
The Newtown, Conn., native was a child of the suburbs and of divorce who still lived with his mother, Nancy, in the quiet town about an hour from N.Y. City.
Friday, he began his day by shooting Nancy in the face.
As if that weren’t disturbing and tragic enough, he then drove her car to nearby Sandy Hook Elementary School, armed with two handguns and a semi-automatic rifle.
There, before turning his gun on himself,More >

Ana Gloria Garcia Gutierrez, 53, mounted the endangered marine mammal September 30.
She turned herself in to the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office in Florida shortly after authorities released pictures of her atop the creature, according to reports.

Bangor, Maine TV news anchors Cindy Michaels and Tony Consiglio resigned live on air last night, stunning the audience and their managers alike.
The pair matter-of-factly announced at the end of their newscast on WVII that it would be their last. They offered no details – on the air, anyway:Anchors Resign On The Air
The duo later told the Bangor Daily News that they were frustrated with management.
“I wanted to know I was doing the best job I could and was being honest and ethical as a journalist, and I thought there were times when I wasn’t able to do that,” saidMore >
Aly Raisman has ceded much of the attention to teammate Gabby Douglas at the London Olympics, but undoubtedly emerged as a star in her own right.
The 18-year-old from Massachusetts hoped to secure not one, but two individual medals in the final day of gymnastics. Was she able to achieve that?
Find out below …
She did! Raisman nailed her floor exercise routine to win the gold medal, scoring a 15.6 and easily topping silver medalist Catalina Ponor of Romania (15.2).
Russia’s Aliya Mustafina took the bronze (14.9). Jordyn Wieber was seventh.
“It was the best routine I’ve ever done,” RaismanMore >
Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney appeared to pull off a narrow win in Ohio on Super Tuesday but lost several other states to challenger Rick Santorum.
The day of 10 primaries and caucuses produced no knockout punch, rather another split verdict that overshadowed Romney’s claim of collecting the most delegates.
Romney remains ahead in the delegate count, and thus the race for the nomination, but any hopes of asserting himself as the inevitable nominee fell short again.
Far from bringing more clarity to the GOP presidential race as some in the party had hoped, Tuesday’sMore >
A hard fought measure to legalize same-sex marriage will officially be signed into law in Maryland today. The signing is set for 5 p.m. in the State House.
A marriage bill came within a whisker of passage in 2011, but was shelved in the House of Delegates at the last minute when leaders fell a few votes shy.
Securing those “few votes” this year took up much of the first 45 days of Maryland’s General Assembly’s legislative session, but it eventually got done.
Gov. Martin O’Malley will sign the bill into law today.
Though both the House and the Senate chambers are dominated by Democrats,More >
Mitt Romney has a sizable lead in most New Hampshire polls heading into the first primary of the Republican nomination race, but did he take on water today?
With the election set for Tuesday, Romney is expected to win, with Ron Paul in second in every survey to date. Thus, the rest of the field is playing catch-up.
Newt Gingrich, in particular, took Mitt to task today twice over:
- Romney’s insistence that he is not a career politician
- His connection to Super PACs running attack ads
After Rick Santorum asked Romney why he didn’t run forMore >
Mitt Romney appeared on the Late Show With David Letterman last night and read a Top 10 list of things he’d like to say to America. Some of them were pretty funny.
Making fun of his game-show-host good looks, his hair, his demeanor and his own name, the M-I-Double-Tizzle held his own, and got in a shot at rival Newt Gingrich.
Watch the former Governor of Massachusetts and White House hopeful present the “Top 10 Things Mitt Romney Would Like to Say to the American People” below …

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney formally entered the race for the Republican presidential nomination on Thursday, announcing his second White House bid with a direct shot at President Barack Obama’s economic leadership.
“Barack Obama has failed America,” Romney declared in Stratham, N.H. “It breaks my heart to see what’s happening in this country.”
“What’s [the president's] answer? He says this: ‘I’m just getting started.’ No, Mr. President, you’ve had your chance.”
Mitt’s run comes at an uncertain time for the U.S. economy, which he claims his business acumen makes him uniquelyMore >
President Barack Obama is running for reelection in 2012. That comes as no surprise, but the chief executive made the announcement official this morning.
Declaring that he remains wholly “focused on the job you elected me to do,” Obama announced his bid for another term in an email (with video) to supporters.
Hours later, several possible Republican presidential hopefuls (none has officially declared their intent to challenge him) used this news to criticize him.
Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney Tweeted @barackobama” “I look forward to hearing details on your jobs plan, as are 14mMore >
Over a year since he was arrested in North Reading, Massachusetts, Adam Jasinski has been sentenced to four years in prison.
The champion of Big Brother 9 – who actually used his reality show winnings to set up a drug ring that included co-star Matt McDonald – was busted in October 2009 for trying to sell 2,000 oxycodone pills to a government informant. Smart, he is not.
It’s a good thing Adam Jasinski has experience living with strangers in tight quarters.
In handing down the sentence to the 32-year old, U.S. District Court Judge William Young decreed:
“You were drug trafficking, and youMore >
She’s no longer The Bachelorette after an emotional finale, but if all goes according to plan in the coming months, Ali Fedotowsky will soon go by another name:
Hunky Roberto Martinez popped the question Monday night on ABC, and is apparently serious about making the Massachusetts native his wife in short order.
“In the spring, we’re thinking,” Ali said when asked about when she’d like to marry her new fiance, who she chose over the broken-hearted Chris Lambton.
While their wedding will likely be a big event – “Her mom wants like 700 people,” Martinez said – the couple alreadyMore >
Frank Neuschaefer’s shocking betrayal of Ali Fedotowsky, who he turned the tables on and dumped for his ex Nicole Caruso, rocked The Bachelorette this week.
But if you think Ali was effectively forced into her final two (Chris Lambton and Roberto Martinez) thanks to Frank and his surprise 180, you best think again.
“I can say with 100 percent certainty that Frank leaving did not affect my final decision,” Ali Fedotowsky told E! Online after being asked about Frank’s exit.
Which is not to say it didn’t wreak havoc at the time.
“There were so many things that were going through my mind,” sheMore >
Kathy Griffin and Elisabeth Hasselbeck are definitely not Facebook friends.
The comedian and the talk show host are at odds this week, following a joke Griffin made on her Bravo series, My Life on the D-List. Speaking to a pair of CNN reporters, Griffin referred to Scott Brown’s kids as “prostitutes.” Watch the segment NOW.
The Massachusetts Senator stood up for his kids, saying: “People can call me any name they want, but families are off limits… Kathy Griffin and Bravo ought to be ashamed of themselves.”
