AMERICA'S NEXT "BACHELORETTE?" Atlanta Assistant District Attorney Andi Dorfman quit "The Bachelor" last week after having become fed up with Juan Pablo Galavis, whom she called "inappropriate." But now she seems poised to star as the next "Bachelorette": E! News said the show's producers have flown her out to discuss the possibility, and while ABC has not responded to the casting claim, TMZ.com on Friday posted a letter from her boss, Fulton County District Attorney Paul Howard Jr., granting her an unpaid leave of absence from Feb. 20 to May 31. While calling the request "highly unusual," Howard did wish her "the best of luck while you participate in this program." ABC is scheduled to announce the next "Bachelorette" star after the "Bachelor" finale next Monday. Galavis eliminated Renee Oteri, leaving Nikki Ferrell and Clare Crawley as the two finalists.
