Bachelor

Aaaahhh… The Bachelor, less successful at matchmaking than Patti Stanger! The paragon for failed engagements has apparently done it again!

Life & Style is reporting that Ben Flajnik has already broken up with the woman he promised to walk down the aisle with courtesy of Neil Lane and ABC. Ben swore he was on the show for the right reasons despite his insistence on keeping Courtney Robertson after she basically got naked on the first date and was a complete twat-asaurus to the other women in the house. He reassured America and twenty-five desperate women that he believed in love and knew his wife was amongst them.

And despite a rocky start, Ben definitely found love and proposed to one lucky lady atop a mountain in the Swiss Alps. When Ben got down on one knee for his second time on reality TV, this time the woman whispered “yes!” and engaged they were! But not for long because it seems nearly as soon as the plane touched down on US soil the problems began!

Multiple sources are confirming that a scant three months after a fairytale engagement things are already falling apart for the couple! Well, if Ben chose who we all suspect he did it’s no wonder they’re having problems! Ahem…famewhore!

“They have totally cooled off,” a source who knows the winning woman reveals. “They often go five to six days without talking. He doesn’t call her, he doesn’t text. She keeps saying, ‘What kind of a fiancé is this?’ In her mind, he’s pretty much dumped her.” Perhaps it’s watching the episodes every week and seeing what really went on behind his back has something to do with Ben losing interest in said fiance.

And that is exactly what seems to be the problem! According to an insider who knows Ben well, the Sonoma, CA winemaker was sincere when he proposed, but watching the show week after week and seeing less flattering sides to the women has opened his eyes. “Ben started to feel like he got played,” the insider explains, and he is ready to move on! According to another source, Ben is even considering moving to NYC to live with friends. THAT I don’t believe – Ben loves his vineyard!

Ben has become so distant from the woman he asked to be his wife, she thinks he’s cheating! “[The winner] thinks Ben’s cheating on her,” a source confides. “She knows he’s been running around New York with other girls and not calling her. She thinks he’s a coward. She just wishes he’d end it already — otherwise maybe she’ll do it herself.”

I say they both got what they were looking for out of the deal. Fame, attention, and more opportunity!

In other Bachelor news, next week the final four women bring Ben home to meet their families. See exclusive behind the scenes photos from next week’s episode below! The remaining women are Courtney, Kacie B, Lindzi, and Nicki!

On last night’s episode of The Bachelor, sucker Ben Flajnik continued to prove he is Courtney-tized!

Despite very strong warnings from his bachelorettes about 28-year-old model Courtney Robertson, Ben refused to let her go, keeping her for next week’s hometown dates.

In his weekly blog for PEOPLE, Ben, age 28, opens up about his “strong” feelings for Courtney, while also explaining why he decided to ignore the strong warnings from the other contestants about her.

First Ben defends, yes defends, Court-court: “I know it’s been hard for Courtney, and to be honest, I’m not sure this was the best environment for her. But, just as I tell the women to take our relationships individually, I try to do the same. My feelings for Courtney are strong and I don’t want to let external forces get in the way.”

Ben goes on to explain why he decided to pull Courtney away during the rose ceremony. Ben writes, “As the rose ceremony approached, I had a lot going through my head. All the women told me about their reservations regarding Courtney, and I really had to think about what I was missing, or if this was all just part of the nature of the women living together. It’s amazing to see how deeply the women felt about their dislike for Courtney, and it’s equally amazing not to see any of that coming through in her actions with me.”

Ben also pretends he actually considered sending Courtney packing! “It was a lot to consider, but my conversation with Courtney at the rose ceremony reaffirmed that I have to take these relationships individually and focus on the way she is when she’s with me,” writes Ben. “I see what some of the women were talking about, but I still feel great about Courtney because when I’m with her, I feel really connected to her.”

But fret not, as Ben assures us the other contestants are still in the running as well! He writes, “In the end, my feelings for Kacie, Nicki, Lindzi and Courtney were the strongest. More than anything, I was completely thrilled that they wanted to take me home to meet their families. Family is everything to me, and it’s a very important part of this journey.”

It looks like the The Bachelor‘s Courtney Robertson‘s exes are all as fame-hungry as this season’s current bad girl. Yet another of her ex-boyfriends has sold his story to a tabloid, with the good intentions of warning Ben Flajnik about Courtney‘s evil, nefarious ways.

The latest in this line of dumped dudes is Dylan Hall, who has come forward to discuss hot topics like Courtney’s alleged old sugar daddy! According to Dylan, Courtney had a “rich old man” who was paying for her to fly up to San Francisco from Los Angeles once a week. Even worse, Dylan claims Courtney continued to see this sugar daddy right until she left to film the Bachelor.

Unlike her other quick relationships, Courtney‘s relationship with Dylan was downright long-term. They reportedly dated for two years, and lived together for one. Another source reports that Courtney left Dylan when she realized he was not as wealthy as she thought. The fact that it took her two entire years to dig up the truth of his finances puts her in as a low-level gold-digger, and not a real pro, which is a bit disappointing.

REPORT – COURTNEY ROBERTSON HAS A SEX TAPE!

Stating the obvious, Dylan warns Ben not to fall for Courtney’s tricks, saying “The show isn’t real.” A photo of Courtney and Dylan is below!

And just in case you’re wondering, Courtney’s alleged sugar daddy is not Clark Cavan, reportedly the most recent of Courtney’s exes who she dumped to film the show, and who is rumored to have made a sex tape with her.

In other news, Ben continues to be dissed in the press. Last week, Courtney’s mom spoke out and said he wasn’t “hot enough” for her little darling, and this week, in a much more public blow, Barbara Walters spoke about him and the show on The View, saying “It’s a stupid show. All these gorgeous women are going after this guy who—well, I’m gonna say it—is less than gorgeous.” Ouch!

She went on, “All these women are mad about him. What am I missing?”  Well, Babs, give anyone enough money and camera exposure and they’ll chase just about anyone. To which, Whoopi Goldberg added, “You’re missing the fact that these women are just as creepy as the guy is!”.

Creepy or not, the ladies (and dude) of The Bachelor are always ripe for parody, which is why it’s so delightful to see them get the Autotune treatment in the video below. In particular, Courtney’s “I got the Roo-se” and her constant references to modeling are genius. I dare you to listen to this and not get the tune stuck in your head all day long!

It’s time for your biweekly dose of Courtney Robertson news! The Bachelor contestant, who is vying for Ben Flajnik’s love, just can’t seem to get her mean little head out of the news, with tales of her non-committal relationships to powerful men.

So, it was no real shock that there is a rumor of a Courtney sex tape with her last sucker boyfriend, photographer Cavan Clark.

Apparently, skinny dipping on a network television show was just the tip of the iceberg! In a new report by UsWeekly magazine, a source who has seen the tape says, “It’s pretty dirty.” And lucky us, there are CliffNotes in the form of pictures, “There are photos, too. But it isn’t Cavan’s style to release them,” says the source.

Like others before him, Cavan was ready to settle down with Courtney and he had even bought a ring in hopes of proposing to her, but she dumped him for reality television. Her excuse, she needed some me-time! The source says, “She told him she needed three months alone.” Coincidentally, three months is around the time it takes to film a season of The Bachelor, if one makes it to the end.

But how does a habitual user get their claws into men? Apparently, she has a routine: “She knows exactly what to say to guys. Her best line is before having sex with a man. She’ll ask him, ‘Are your ready for your date with destiny?’”

That sounds more than a little creepy and we’re hoping Ben didn’t fall for this, but it’s looking more and more like he did, although according to her sex-tape dishing source, she is “worried about her ex exposing secrets about her” so she’s probably feeling some heat right now. However, back in Ben-land, he is still falling in love with her.

In his last blog for People.com, he explains what it is that he sees in Courtney. Basically, he likes that she likes him:

“It’s not easy balancing relationships while trying to make everyone feel special. That’s why I was drawn to Courtney during the daytime portion of the group date – she made it a point to spend time with me. I always knew how she felt and she made sure to let me know that she was thinking of me.”

The UsWeekly article also reveals that in addition to dating actor Jesse Metcalfe, and Reese Witherspoon’s husband Jim Toth, Courtney also dated actor Adrian Grenier.

You know that old saying – once a famewhore, always a famewhore! Well, Jake Pavelka continues to hold on to his last few seconds of fame by any means necessary!

According to UsWeekly, the former pilot Bachelor star has signed on for a gig working for Chippendales!

Yes, Jake, 34, will start his new job at the Rio in Las Vegas on Feb. 23. But before you get overly excited, the reports state Jake will not be wearing the traditional Chippendales uniform, as he will only be the celebrity MC.

JAKE’S EX VIENNA GIRARDI SAYS KASEY KAHL ABUSED HER

However, while Jake’s not required to take off his clothes, sources tell UsWeekly he probably will!   “At this time, he’s not officially stripping, but you never know what can happen. It’s a live show and the audience always plays a big factor,” reveals Jake the source.

Since his stint on The Bachelor back in 2010, Jake has yet to return to being a pilot instead appearing on more reality shows including the Bachelor Pad and more recently, the VH1 disaster Famous Food.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON JAKE’S LATEST GIG? IS IT TIME FOR HIM TO GET A REAL J.O.B?

Everyone’s favorite Bachelor Pad villainess Vienna Girardi is speaking out about her relationship with ex-boyfriend and Bachelor Pad pad partner, Kasey Kahl! And Vienna is now accusing the Kasey “Guard And Protect Your Heart” Kahl of abuse!

Speaking to Reality Weekly, Vienna describes the fear she felt in her past relationship, which she describes as “hell” and explains why she had to leave Kasey! “I went through hell with him, with his drinking and his anger,” she reveals. “I had enough, I couldn’t take it anymore.”

Vienna’s fear was so acute it led her to break up with Kasey in November, move out of their Beverly Hills apartment, and literally flee to Florida. “I had to get away from it,” she explains.

Vienna’s first experience with Made-For-TV love was scarcely better. After winning The Bachelor and becoming engaged to Jake Pavelka, Vienna had a similar experience; claiming Jake’s temper and his controlling behavior forced her to end the engagement and move out.

While dating Kasey, Vienna says she was subjected to constant emotional abuse and although he never hit her with closed fists, he got physical in other ways. “He kicked me off the couch one night with his foot,” she recalls. “I have voice recordings of Kasey when he has called me drunk and mad, yelling he is going to f–k a girl – while we were dating,” Vienna insists.

Vienna claims Kasey often promised to change; to stop drinking, but he never did. “He got drunk every day,” she alleges. “Kasey claims to never remember anything he does when he’s drunk. And that is a big problem because he never thinks he has done anything wrong.”

Kasey was recently arrested in his hometown of Fresno, CA after getting into a bar brawl. He allegedly punched a woman in the face, giving her a bloody nose. Kasey was arrested with several friends; no charges were filed and the police let him go. Vienna alleges the woman Kasey supposedly hit is suing him because of the assault.

The couple attempted to work through their issues on the new Vh1 show, Relationship Rehab, where Kasey admitted he had a problem with drinking – but nothing got resolved. Vienna remained afraid of his temper: “I was so scared,” she admits and the couple broke up.

Vienna describes their break up as difficult and said Kasey took it hard. “Kasey wasn’t ready to break up,” Vienna explains, adding that she wanted to go in a different direction in her life, which further angered him. “I wanted to buy a house, move to Florida, and open a clothing store. Kasey got really mad about that.”

Ultimately, Vienna decided she had to leave, but remained silent until now, because she was afraid to tell anyone. And it has nothing at all to do with promoting her newest reality show?

“I was so afraid to tell people about how he treated me because I was scared no one would ever believe me after what happened with Jake,” Vienna admits. “So I just picked up and left LA. I came home to Florida and started my life again.”

Vienna is hopeful that Kasey will realize the error of his ways and stop drinking once and for all. “Maybe he will learn,” Vienna says. “Sadly, he is a good guy when he’s not drinking.” Kasey has yet to comment on these allegations, but I’m sure he will in the next day or two!

Just a side note – I sincerely hope claiming domestic abuse is not going to be the new way wannabe celebrities seek attention from the media. Why don’t they stick to making sex tapes like the good old days. Domestic violence is an incredibly serious issue and should not be taken lightly. I hope all these women speaking out about alleged abuse are being truthful AND attempting to use their platform to help victims with fewer resources.

If The Bachelor villainess Courtney Robertson‘s goal is solely to get famous and not to fall in love with Bachelor Ben Flajnik, she is kinda succeeding. Courtney, the formerly unknown, continues to garner regular headlines in the tabs.

Last week, it was the story of how she dumped her boyfriend to go on the show, and this week, we’ve got her mom Sherry Robertson giving interviews to several gossip rags, proving that the lust for fame runs in the family.

She had some harsh words to say about Ben in one interview, pointing out that just doesn’t fit her aesthetic standards: “She’s too good for Ben. Ben’s not hot enough. I would not pick him out of a crowd for my daughter. Physically, he’s not as handsome as the guys Courtney dates. [Courtney has] dated some really good-looking men.”

And who are those other handsome men Courtney has graced with her charming personality? There’s actor Jesse Metcalf, and in an interview for Life & Style, a source alleges she he dated Jim Toth, actress Reese Witherspoon‘s current husband. In fact, the “friend” says she dated him right before he started dating Reese, which means she should be just as famous as Reese, right? They say, “Courtney dated Jim right before he started going out with Reese. They went on several dates.”

That sounds like a totally serious relationship. It turns out Jim wanted to settle down and Courtney wasn’t down with that, “Jim made it very clear he was done dating around and was ready for marriage and a family — he was 38 and ready to settle down. Courtney felt the opposite, and they stopped seeing each other. Jim started dating Reese — and knew he’d found the one.”

It looks like Courtney isn’t looking for a relationship, as she is a ticket to fame. Jim Toth, after all, is a very big agent in Hollywood, and had she played her cards right, she could have made some serious connections. But, she may have been too transparent in her true motivations. In the Life & Style piece, Sherry agrees that her daughter is not looking to be wifed up: “I’ve never felt she was really looking for a permanent relationship and marriage. She’s been out with a few very successful, good-looking men!”

In the meantime, on the show, Ben continues to look for his next girlfriend / fiancee of 15 minutes, eternal love. He blogged about his now infamous skinny-dipping scene with Courtney, saying he’d be dumb to turn her down:

“I won’t spend a ton of time on the skinny-dipping, because I feel like I’ve talked about it so much in the press! What I will say is that I try to focus on all these relationships singularly. It’s odd to date more than one woman and in order to do so, you have to try to treat each one individually. If I were in Puerto Rico with a beautiful woman I was dating and she wanted to skinny dip, I would be a fool to decline. I treated this situation the same way.”

“I will admit that at the time I wasn’t thinking of the other women and how it would make them feel, and I’m sorry for that, but I can’t blame Courtney for going out of her way to spend more time with me – that’s why we are all here.”

TELL US: DO YOU THINK BEN IS GOOD-LOOKING ENOUGH FOR COURTNEY? DO YOU THINK SHE IS JUST OUT TO GET FAMOUS? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF HER PAST RELATIONSHIPS?

The Bachelor has already established their villain in Courtney Robertson, a brunette who appears to have not received the memo that no one says “winning” anymore. In a new report by Life & Style magazine, it’s revealed that she’s not exactly the lonely date-less girl she has painted herself out to be in her conversations with Ben Flajnik.

In fact, she had a serious boyfriend whom she dumped to appear on the show! The report’s source reveals “She was dating photographer Cavan Clark for months. Then one day she just stopped calling. And they were so serious. Even talking marriage. He was about to propose.”

The source claims that the callous Courtney even filmed her Bachelor spots in a dress her boyfriend got her as well as a bicycle, which Cavan discovered by watching TV and catching his former beloved.

Ben is also getting a glimpse into Courtney’s true nature by watching the episodes along with the rest of us and on his People.com blog, says he didn’t know what she was doing when she wasn’t trapping him in her web:

“One thing I was completely oblivious to was Courtney causing such a stir with the other women. I thought that she was just making the most of her moments with me.

It’s really hard to not let your mind get caught up in “Do I really know that this person is being sincere?” so I tried to give everyone the benefit of the doubt. I tried not to go into this experience with the fear that I was getting played, but I will say that if I let myself go there, it’s a common fear in any relationship. Am I seeing the real side to this person?”

In his blog, Ben appears frustrated he is not getting the complete story and has to rely on himself:

“It’s really hard to navigate this process, especially when I don’t see what is going on between the ladies when I’m not in the room. But even though there was drama amongst the women, I decided to rely on my own intuitions and make up my mind for myself.”

Whether or not Ben knows about Courtney‘s true personality and serious boyfriend, it’s clear he’s smitten with her charms, on full display in the following clip where the two go skinny dipping. It’s so romantic with the two of them, the camera crew, producers, and the knowledge everyone you’ve ever known will soon be watching you naked with blocks on your private parts. It’s every girl’s dream.

Check out the below preview clip, where Courtney says she’s “winning” and explains her rationale for asking him to swim nude (and make out) with her: “It’s not every day that you’re in Puerto Rico with a guy that you like. You only live once. I’m hoping he finds me irresistible.”

A new episode of The Bachelor airs tonight on ABC at 8/7c.
