Ali Fedotowsky Apologizes for Midwest Diss on ‘Fashion Police’
Ali Fedotowsky, one of our most beloved Bachelorettes, joined Joan Rivers and Kelly Osbourne last Thursday on E!'s Fashion Police. Considering how crass and unapologetic Joan Rivers can be, we were surprised to hear that our sweet little Ali was channeling a little of Joan's uncouth flair.
When talking about the black dress Whitney Houston wore, Ali said, "I feel like this dress could be seen sort of at a wedding in the Midwest where no one has any fashion." Some of Ali's Facebook fans were offended by the remark and took to commenting in defense of Midwest style.
Ali then apologized in a statement on her Facebook wall: "I want to apologize for a comment I made last week on Fashion Police. I never intended to insult anyone–it came out completely wrong & I am sincerely sorry. Since I KNOW my mid-west girls have tons of style, I’m encouraging all u fashionable midwestern gals to send me pics of your most 'red-carpet' worthy look. I'll pick my fav & will work w/ that person to choose my next red carpet look! Excited to see all ur pics!"
Did Ali write the book on turning lemons into lemonade? Because her about-face is fantastic. If you're from the Midwest and you've got style, head on over to Ali's homepage and submit your best pics!
