Florists, prepare your roses: Bachelorettes from Season 6 through 9 met up backstage at the Katie show (that’s news anchor Katie Couric’s latest TV venture, not the spin-off of a lost Bachelorette). The daytime talk show’s June 17 episode was dedicated to all things Bachelor/ette, which meant lots of alums, quite a few diamonds, and plenty of hairspray.

The four leading ladies — current girl-next-door recruit Desiree Hartsock, Season 8’s Emily Maynard, Season 6’s Ali Fedotowsky, and Season 7’s Ashley Hebert — posed for a pic backstage.

Note the perfect arrangement of two blondes bookended by two brunettes; these ladies are just that good after so much time in front of the camera.

Sounds like couch chatter got interesting with Ali posing this question: “Collectively, how many dates do you think we’ve been on?” The better question: How much saliva have you encountered? Wait. Don’t answer that.

We hope the ladies of seasons past gave star attraction Des some advice as she continues on her ABC media blitz journey to find love. After last night’s debacle in Jersey, girlfriend needs all the help she can get to keep the S.S. Fairy Tale afloat.
