ETonline, Wednesday, June 30, 2010, 2:13pm (PDT)

She vied for Jake Pavelka's affections on "The Bachelor" but was ultimately denied -- now, "Bachelorette" Ali Fedotowsky is offering her take on Jake and Vienna Girardi's breakup!

"It's sad [the split] happened," Ali tells "I hope the media stuff dies down and they can focus on moving forward."

"I want to make sure he has time to heal and go through all of the emotions before I would even consider reaching out as a friend," she adds.

But now that Jake's an eligible "bachelor" again, does Ali have any interest in trying to get involved with him romantically? "That's not going to happen," she tells the site. "I hate to put a damper on everyone's hopes out there, but no."
