Are Ben and Courtney Still Together?


Just because The Bachelor has ended its sixteenth run, doesn’t mean that the tabloid industry isn’t still running all kinds of news on its winner, Courtney Robertson. This past season’s villainess is still being accused of being a sneaky gold digger who is only into Ben Flajnik for all his millions. And his hair. We can’t forget that.

In a recent report from In Touch, someone trying to make money by spilling secrets about Courtney, reveals the oh-so-shocking news that she “has had numerous plastic surgeries, including implants, fillers, laser surgery and Botox.” Her, and every other woman currently on television. You can’t get that creepy emotionless stare without injecting poison into your forehead, ya know.

The source also alleges that Courtney’s life goals are not so wholesome, spilling that “Her life’s goal is not to settle down and have kids, it’s to be aPlayboy model.” Playboy models make good money! I’m not so sure if I buy this, only because there are easier ways to model for Playboy that don’t involve going on a cheesy reality show. And given all his partying, I’m not so sure Ben wants to settle down either.

The source is adamant that Courtney’s main goal is to pose naked for the iconic men’s magazine, claiming all she wants is money. The source says, “I think that will be her next move. She wants the money. All she’s really looking for is to be supported financially.” Now I’m confused, is she a gold-digger for Ben’s wallet or does she just want to be out on her own to pose naked as she wishes? Snitches need to be clearer.

As for Courtney, she recently gave her first solo post-show interview to Wetpaint, and she sounds downright normal in it, and not like some conniving wanna-be nude model. She reveals she and Ben just spent a weekend together (photos are below) in San Francisco and that she hopes to move there soon. For now, the couple has to deal with attention from the tabloids and paparazzi, but it doesn’t bother Courtney:

“We try not to pay attention to it. I guess positive stories don’t sell, so no one wants to run the truth. All they care about is selling magazines so they come up with these crazy, scandalous stories that are just so ridiculous. I mean, I’m carrying the Bachelor baby? At first, it made me really angry, but I’ve made peace with it.”

She insists that she wasn’t bothered by all the reports of Ben cheating and partying with other girls, and buys his “we’re just friends” excuse:

“Of course, initially it was upsetting. But at the end of the day, if I didn’t trust him, I wouldn’t be with him, period.

He has a lot of female friends and he’s a playful, flirty guy who likes to party with everyone. I get that about him and I’m completely fine with it. He’s a really warm and social person.

But he became a target. The tabloids hired people to follow him everywhere, just waiting for the chance to snap a photo of anything they could to make it look like he was doing something shady. I think you can take a photo and make it look like anything if you really want to.

Am I thrilled about the photos? No. But I believe him when he says he didn’t cheat.”

As for her relationship with the other women, most who couldn’t stand her, Courtney says “..it’s definitely not as bad as people might think. Everyone’s moving on.” But she is quick to admit that she “would have handled herself differently” if she had to do it all over again.

When it comes to the public backlash, Courtney claims things are starting to improve: “I just spent the weekend with Ben in San Francisco and people kept coming up to us and offering words of encouragement. So yeah, things seem to be getting better.”

And unlike Ben, who has been quoted saying this was the worst experience of his life, Courtney would “do it again in a heartbeat.” Of course she would! Photos of Ben and Courtney together are below!

In what has been described as somewhat of a dark season, all thanks to the black widow Courtney Robertson, the Bachelor season 16 ended last night with an engagement!

Yes Ben Flajnik, 29, did indeed propose to Courtney, 28, as expected, and much to the dismay of may fans. In fact, Courtney found herself on the receiving end of some boos when she took the stage for the After The Final Rose special.

So what’s the latest with the couple? Well, it appears they are still together for the time being, and trying to make things work. The engaged couple was brutally honest during the March 3 taping of the ATFR, during which Ben revealed that he did dump Courtney in early February over not being able to deal with the backlash.

There were times “I didn’t leave the house, I just laid there and I cried,” revealed a somber Courtney over being dumped, adding that trust is very important to her.

Ben, who vehemently swore on his father’s grave and denied cheating — despite the photos and reports that say other wise — then apologized to Courtney and vowed to be there for her through thick and thin. “It hasn’t been an easy ride,” Ben said. “I want to apologize to her, in front of everyone, for not standing by you throughout this entire journey…I messed up in that regard, as an engaged couple and as the man, I feel I should have stayed with you the entire way instead of taking steps back and taking time apart.”

The apology seemed to work as Courtney added, “I know how I feel about him, and that I love him. I’m not ready to just turn my back on him. So…I’m willing to try.”

Ben and Courtney are expected to grace tomorrow’s over of PEOPLE magazine. I must say, I actually found myself feeling bad for Courtney last night. I know she was this awful villain, but she does seem to truly love Ben, plus Ben chose her despite all the warnings from others, and should have therefore stuck by her through the hard times. I can’t imagine the two would ever be able to build complete trust again, especially in light of the cheating scandal.

Moving on to the forgotten runner up, Lindzi Cox, who managed to keep her dignity intact when she told Ben to call her in case things didn’t work with Courtney.

Appearing on Good Morning America today, Lindzi seemed to be in a much happier place, even wishing Courtney and Ben the best. “At the end of the day, yeah maybe it was tough for a little bit, but he made a decision, it was what’s best for him, and I respect that,” said Lindzi, 27. “I wish him nothing but the best.”

As for why she failed to appear on the AFTR special, Lindzi stated that Ben and Courtney simply had more important issues to hash out than her need for closure. “Ben and Courtney came out and it was a pretty emotional go they had. I think it was tough for them. I’m in a good place. I don’t really need my closure,” Cox said. “I think Ben has bigger things to worry about, so we just decided that I’d play another day.”

Meanwhile, ABC announced that a new season of the Bachelor Pad is under way. Even better, similar to the past MTV Read World/Road Rules challenges, the network will now allow fans to try out for the series!

A slot is being kept open for one fan on the series to compete for the $250,000 prize! Those with the “charm, wit and personality to find love or money” on Bachelor Pad 3 can apply by clicking here.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE BACHELOR FINALE? DO BEN & COURTNEY STAND A CHANCE? DO YOU FEEL BAD FOR COURTNEY OR BEN? WILL YOU BE TRYING OUT FOR THE BACHELOR PAD 3?

Following the reports and photos, which showed Ben Flajnik cheating on his fiancé from The Bachelor, many have wondered what is the status of their relationship.

While viewers will find out tonight, following the season finale and After The Final Rose special, UsWeekly is giving us details on what we can expect! If you’ve kept up with the cheating scandal, you know that Ben was pictured making out with multiple women last month, two of which spent the night at his apartment.

So how did Ben explain this away to his rumored fiancé Courtney Robertson? UsWeekly reports that despite his sloppy cheating, Ben still wants to give things a shot with Courtney and lied his way back into her heart during the March 3 taping of the After The Finale Rose special.

Ben reportedly swore on his father’s grave that he was just kissing “old friends.” Though insiders say he only met the women in February, and is still texting one of them. Yikes.

The mag states that Courtney has been totally miserable since filming wrapped. Ben actually broke off his engagement to her on February 7, three months after he filmed the proposal in November. This is consistent with lots of other rumors that have popped up about Ben and Courtney. Another report gives more details about Ben’s evasion, revealing “Things did get shaky between them. Ben panicked. He put Courtney on the back burner, didn’t call for a week (including on Valentine’s Day). He drowned himself in his partying.”

Ben‘s behavior towards Courtney is once again blamed on how he felt after seeing how she was acting on the show when she wasn’t with him. Her on-screen antics and interviews were so heinous, a friend says “Ben cracked. He was hearing from everyone that he got played.”

In the upcoming televised therapy special (please make this trend of televised therapy stop!), Courtney allegedly admitted that she felt Ben “abandoned” her and that she “had days where [she] stayed in bed and cried.”

Despite the poor odds for Bachelor couples, Ben and Courtney are now rumored to be giving their relationship another shot, perhaps on directive from their ABC overlords. Ben has apparently purchased a new engagement ring for Courtney and has told her “I’m going to be there for you forever!”

And there’s also been talk of the pair going on another fancy location, this time without a camera crew. “They’re going someplace very remote, where no one cares about The Bachelor,” Ben’s friend reveals, “That way they can see where the relationship really stands without cameras rolling.”
