Her rep told Us: "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 currently works as an on-air correspondent for Fox 5 San Diego; she announced last week she would cohost an upcoming weekly talk show on the Style Network.)

Fedotowsky wrote on her Twitter page Monday: "Thanks so much everyone for your concern. Big headache, but managed to hide staples w/hair part and I am back at work this morning."

She also admitted: "I think I freaked out more when when the doctor cut my hair rather than when he put staples into my head. Lol. Very thankful to be ok :)"

"[But I] made it out of the ER w/staples in my head & a little less hair after falling out of a kayak," she added. "Scary stuff. Wearing a helmet next time."
