I'm sure no one is surprised to learn that approximately five seconds after being dumped by Ben Flajnik, his ex-fiance unleashed the crazy that millions of viewers observed on The Bachelor.
Courtney Robertson is not only reportedly writing a tell-all about her experiences on the show and with Ben, but she's been out and about complaining about him and slamming him left and right in the press. For all -2 of you who didn't think Courtney was a famewhore looking for her big ticket to stardom before this, her post-breakup behavior pretty much dispels any lingering myth.
In addition to all that nonsense, Courtney has taken a liking to hometown Phoenix-native and fellow Bachelor Nation alum, Arie Luyendyk Jr. Apparently Courtney's behavior has rubbed off on poor too cute for words Arie.
The Los Angeles based "model" is speaking out about her failed engagement to the wine making dud. She blames the fantasy-like dates and sheltered existence during filming as part of the problem. Wait, really? So you're saying that falling in love in eight weeks while jet setting, swimming with dolphins, and private concerts isn't real life? Wow. Color me floored.
No one really believes that Courtney would have fallen for Ben and his unfortunate hair and Oliver Twist-ish wardrobe in real life, right? I have to say, I almost respect her more for kind of acknowledging that fact.
Looks like a Bachelor / Bachelorette version of The Brady Bunch, doesn't it? Well, except for the big red slash through Jef Holm's picture, I guess.
About that No Jef Holm picture… it seems as if someone took the time to create a "Jef Holm's Ex" Twitter page. She (we're guessing) claims to be "one of the many ex GFs of Mr. Bachelorette Jef Holm" and has made it her mission to "warn" the young girls of America that Jef isn't worth the "heartache."
Honestly, this is why I love this job. I could not make up stuff like this.
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
No one ever likes to admit when they're wrong. It's humbling and very embarrassing…even more so when you're eating crow about the Bachelor franchise. Until I fell for quirky One F Jef Holm on the Bachelorette finale, I was a tried and true Arie Luyendyk Jr. fan. In fact, I loved that Emily Maynard chose Jef because that meant that Arie was still on the market. In addition to reality television, I am also somewhat of a racing fanatic. Weird, I know. Since Carl Edwards is married, I hung all of my hopes on Arie.
Alas, those hopes have been dashed…along with my once Pollyanna-esque views that Arie was a happy-go-lucky, love struck dude who enjoyed awkwardly intense make-out sessions. It turns out my friend (a Sean Lowe fan, go figure) tried to warn me that Arie was just another player, and it seems she was right. Why else would he be caught sucking face with fame harlot Courtney Robertson less than a week after she was able to shake former fiance Ben Flajnik? At least she upgraded in the hair department!
Chris Harrisonconfirmed the news to SheKnows on the Primetime Emmy Awards red carpet last night. When asked whom Chris would like to see as the next Bachelor… perhaps Sean, Chris answered, "Well, a little known secret, he has been chosen."
Is Sean Lowe the next Bachelor? Well, apparently, he's the only "name" still in the running.
On August 31st, Arie Luyendyk Jr.announced that he is pulling out of the race to be the next Bachelor. Arie tweeted, "The Bachelorette was an amazing experience but I will not continue with the Bachelor. Ultimately I realized my heart is tied to the race track and my career is my main priority. I'm looking forward to getting back on the track."
As you can imagine, Arie's fans went crazy. I may have shed a tear myself. Seriously… the good looks… the kisses… the sense of humor… Arie would be an entertaining Bachelor. Did someone just mumble cough <but he's a player>? Eh, their standards haven't too high in recent years anyway. Case in point – Jake PavelkaandBrad WomackPart 2. Arie responded to me his fans on Twitter, "Lots of encouraging remarks. Thank you for all the love, the future looks bright and you will see more of me soon enough. #LoveMyFans."
Arie Luyendyk Jr.‘s Daddy says Arie wants to be the next Bachelor. A unnamed source, who attended a recent IndyCar event in Ohio, overheard Arie Luyendyk Sr. talking about Arie’s hot passionate - oops, sorry, I was thinking about those kisses – desire to return to the show.
“I heard him say Arie is definitely interested in being the next Bachelor,” said the source. “He said if they ask him, he’d be thrilled.”
