“If Molly wanted to be the Bachelorette, I would definitely support her,” Fedotowsky-Manno, who headlined The Bachelorette‘s season 6 in 2010, tells PEOPLE exclusively in this week’s issue.

According to the reality star, she often gets asked about her experience with the dating show.
“People always ask me if I regret doing The Bachelorette,” she says. “And the answer is absolutely not. It was one of the most incredible experiences of my life and it brought me to where I am today.”
That said, Fedotowksy-Manno, 32, admits she worries about the inevitable romantic ups and downs that lie in Molly’s future.
“Thinking about her love life gets me the most emotional,” she says. “I know it sounds crazy!”
“One day my one of my good friends said to me, ‘She’s so precious, no one will ever break her heart,’ ” she recalls. “And when she said that I just lost it — because one day, a guy’s going to break her heart and there’s nothing I’m going to be able to do to help her. But you know, you have kids, and you can’t protect them from [everything].”

So, will she ever let her daughter watch her own experiences on the hit ABC franchise?
“Oh my God, yeah. Of course I’ll let her watch it,” says Fedotowsky-Manno of her experience on The Bachelorette. “I don’t think she’s going to want to watch my season! She’ll be like, ‘Mom, I don’t want to watch you make out with like all these guys.’ ”
“I don’t know if I’d let her watch me on The Bachelor, though, because I was a little catty at times on that,” she adds. “Maybe I’d let her watch it and say, ‘Don’t do what Mommy did. This is to teach you what’s wrong, and this is what you should do instead!’ ”
