'Bachelorette' Star Ali Fedotowsky Gets Staples in Her Head After Kayak Accident

UsMagazine.com is reporting that Fedotowsky went kayaking with fiance Roberto Martinez in La Jolla, Calif., when she was knocked overboard.
A rep of the reality star said, "Ali and Roberto had a little mishap when their kayak capsized this weekend. Ali was taken to the hospital and had 5 staples put in her head. Roberto was fantastic -- he kept her calm and took great care of her. She is doing fine, and actually off to work this morning."
Fedotowsky was well enough to post a message on Twitter after her trip to the hospital, where she revealed that not wearing a helmet caused the injury to her head.
She tweeted, "Made it out of the ER w/staples in my head & a little less hair after falling out of a kayak. Scary stuff. Wearing a helmet next time."
Fedotowsky goes on, "I think I freaked out more when the doctor cut my hair rather than when he put staples into my head. Lol. Very thankful to be ok :)."
The 26-year-old reality star also thanked everyone for their concern in a tweet the next day and said she was well enough to go back to work on Monday morning.
Fedotowsky is currently working as an on-air correspondent for Fox 5 San Diego and announced last week she would be co-hosting an upcoming weekly talk show on the Style Network.
