Bachelor

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.

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.

Shawntel Newton

Being an actual contestant on The Bachelor is simply not humiliating enough for some folks. Others have to extend their .5 seconds of fame and come back to the show, via their spin-offs, or if you’re Shawntel Newton, you can return in a surprise visit.

In an interview with People, Shawntel explains what the hell she was doing there as well as her very special connection via sexting (er, I mean, “Twitter fling”) to current bachelor Ben Flajnik. Plus, how she dealt with the abuse backlash she received from the other contestants!

On why she decided to meet Ben on the show, instead of meeting him for a drink like a normal person:

“I didn’t want to go back on national television, but I wanted to at least meet Ben in person. This was the only chance I had. [He could] be engaged in a couple of months. It was worth trying. It wasn’t like I was in love with this guy, but I thought there could be something … I didn’t think anyone was in love yet so I didn’t think I was stepping on too many toes.”

On some of the not-so-nice reactions she received from the actual contestants:

I knew I was walking into a lion’s den. I expected going in to have the girls a little confused and upset with me. … Insecurities came out and nothing could have prepared me [for] the reaction [I got]. Hearing girls saying I’m uglier in person and have big thighs and calling me dumpster trash and a b—- – was intense. I was hurt. Jaclyn told me she wanted to punch [me] in the face. Courtney was the most harsh. When I got sent home, she laughed and said, “Sayonara.” Defending myself for two hours was exhausting. A girl can only take so much. I snuck off to the bathroom and I cried.

On her very intimate Twitter relationship with Ben:

I made it very clear on Twitter I had a crush on him and wanted to get to know him [during] Ashley’s season. He sent me a private message and we exchanged numbers. We [said] we should meet in person but he couldn’t be seen in public. It never happened.

On how she thought her surprise visit would do:

I was very confident walking in, because I knew he felt something for me, too. I really thought he would keep me and at least take me on a date to see if there was something. I would have liked that a whole lot better than talking to him for two minutes, getting picked on and then being sent home.

On who’s wearing the pants on the Bachelor set:

I think the biggest influence [on his decision] was Courtney. She basically gave him an ultimatum – “If you keep Shawntel, I’m out” – and he’s making it clear he’s head over heels for her. I think he ends up choosing her.

In other news, Bravo’s own Andy Cohen also made a shocking revelation when he told the HollywoodLife he was once approached to be The Bachelor!

“I got a call once years ago before anybody knew who I was,” Andy revealed. “My picture was in W magazine, and the producers of The Bachelor called. They were calling to see if I would ever be interested in going through the casting process.”

Andy err of course turned ABC down for obvious reasons. “I said, ‘You are barking up the wrong tree,’” he stated. “‘Unless The Bachelor is going in a different direction …”

The Bachelor 16 Cast Photo

The short long wait is over as the new season of The Bachelor returns tonight on ABC!

On the 16th season of the ABC hit show, Ben Flajnik, who was rejected by Bachelorette Ashley Hebert last year after getting down on one knee to propose, returns to find love amongst 25 desperate eager bachelorettes!

When asked if he found love on the show, Ben plays coy stating “I obviously can’t tell you that. But I’m happy with my decision in doing the show. Another good experience. Another cathartic, therapeutic adventure for me.” Hint – He did and is now engaged!

So what is Ben looking for in a potential mate? “It’s important for me to be with someone who’s well-rounded, cultured and flexible,” says Ben, 29. “Not someone who is so used to routine. Because my life is very sporadic. Being in the wine industry, no two days are the same. So those were important qualities that I looked for.”

Ben is also asked if he’s concerned that, you know, pretty much 99% of the show’s relationships end up not working out. “Relationships end whether you’re on a TV show or not. Some haven’t worked out and some have. There are some celebrated relationships on this show,” claims Ben. Good answer!

Ben also assures us that when “all of this is said and done, I just want to go back to my life in Northern California, where most people really don’t know who I am. And I’d prefer it that way.”

As for what we can expect on tonight’s premiere, sensitive New York blogger Jenna has an emotional breakdown over Ben while another contestant Monica — who is reportedly bisexual — shows more interest in a fellow contestant than in Ben! And Brittney tries to snag a first impression rose by bringing her Grandma on to meet Ben.

The Bachelor premieres tonight at 8/7c on ABC.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON THE NEW SEASON OF THE BACHELOR & TONIGHT’S PREMIERE?


With The Bachelor premiering next month, Ben Flajnik is spilling some details about his upcoming season and claiming that actress Jennifer Love Hewitt wanted to take him off the market before ABC had the chance!

Us Weekly confirms that Ben went on one date with the 32-year-old actress before signing on to become The Bachelor. A witness spotted the pair on an awkward seeming “first date” at Lion’s Pub in San Francisco this August. “It seemed like a first date, but he wasn’t overly affectionate,” the witness reported, adding that Jennifer seemed very interested in Ben! “As the bar started to close she grabbed his hand and marched outside.”

Ben confirms that Jennifer initiated everything! “She had reached out to me and wanted to come up to the winery so she did with some friends,” Ben explained.

“She’s a nice girl, but… after this is all said and done, I want to go back to Northern California to my normal life,” he disclosed. “Ending up with a Hollywood celebrity is not something I ever imagined doing.” Well, good thing he had 25 more eligible bachelorettes to choose from! Other reports have also claimed Ben thought Jennifer was a little cray-cray!

Speaking of the upcoming season, Ben reveals he is happy he participated in the show. Now that filming has completed Ben is happily settling into his life post-reality TV, but did he find love? Zap2It covered a recent press conference Ben did to advertise the new season and he’s not giving away any details!

“I’m happy with my decision in doing the show. Another good experience, another cathartic, therapeutic adventure… I can’t tell you [if I'm happy with the outcome]. I’m happy with the experience, I’m happy I decided to become the bachelor,” Ben divulged. “I have no regrets about anything that I did. I feel like my decisions were well thought out and I’ll leave it at that.”

“When that first limo pulled up, sheer panic and terror set in. It took the first few ladies for me to kind of settle in. Your heart is racing, it’s nerve-wracking on both sides,” Ben said, describing the initial meet-n-greet with the women.

After going through the process himself, Ben is empathetic to the choice his former love Ashley Hebert faced and understands being torn between two people. “You’re obviously trying to figure out a lot of things along the way and it’s a difficult situation. Easily the hardest thing I’ve had to do in my entire life,” Ben recounted. “You’re always thinking about each individual relationship, where it’s going, where it’s not going. It’s difficult.”

While we’re all wondering if Ben will be walking down the aisle, Bachelor host Chris Harrison isn’t giving anything away either only commenting that Ben is “in the right place to find love.”

ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT WANTED TO GO ON A DATE WITH BEN? DO YOU THINK BEN PROPOSED ON HIS SEASON?


Will they or won’t they… be one of the only Bachelorette couples to marry! Former Bachelorette Ashley Hebert and her fiancé JP Rosenbaum are still engaged but they have no plans to walk down the aisle just yet.

The couple spoke to US Weekly at ASPCA’s “Blessing of the Animals” in NYC this Sunday and the couple, along with their dog, Boo, confirmed they are still happy but there’s no wedding date set! “Well, I’m almost done with school. I just have a week and a half [left],” Ashley explained. “I think once that’s done I can start turning my attention elsewhere.”

The couple is still happily engaged and enjoying their time living together in NYC. “We really are best friends, [so] just being together is a lot to look forward to,” Ashley said of their relationship, adding that the couple “looks forward to building our lives together.”

JP echoed that they just “want to wait for the right time” before walking down the aisle. The right time like when ABC schedules their nuptials??

And Ashley is happy about her rejected former beau Ben Flajnik‘s turn on The Bachelor. “He’s a really good guy,” Ashley said. “We both really respect him. I hope he has better… You know, a better experience than I gave him.”

Speaking of Ben, an extended trailer for his upcoming season of The Bachelor has just been released and it promises bachelorettes at war (literally), covert activity, plenty of crying, and a very, very crazy villainess in the form of Courtney Robertson, a model from AZ who tries to seduce Ben by skinnydipping! A photo of Courtney is below.

Since I know you all are heartbroken and dying to know the reasons Ali Fedotowski and Roberto Martinez ended their engagement and broke up, according to reports ABC is considering filming a breakup special with the former lovebirds.

Life & Style talked with host Chris Harrison about the canceled engagement and asked hat he thinks went wrong. “I’m sorry for Ali and Roberto, but I’m old enough and wise enough to know that these things happen,” Chris explains, adding that neither Ali or Roberto blame the show for the disintegration of their relationship. “It’s not the show, and it’s not TV, it’s life.”

As for the supposed breakup special, Chris says he’d be more than happy to film one! “I’d sit down with Ali and Roberto, but I don’t know what good it would do,” he muses. “It’s kind of like when someone says, ‘Why did you get divorced?’ It’s never really that black-and-white, and I don’t know what either one of them could offer or say that would really satisfy anybody.”

Following her breakup Ali has confessed to not knowing what to do with her life and it appears she may have some answers! OK! Magazine is reporting her days of looking for love on TV may be far from over as they are claiming she is a contender to be the next Bachelorette! Perhaps the reports that Ali is a desperate famewhore have some validity…

“The network would love to have her back,” Ali a friend tells the mag, dropping hints that Ali is interested in pulling a Brad Womack. And we all know how well that turned out!

The friend claims that Ali’s overwhelming ratings on the show have execs interested in giving her a second chance. “Her numbers were through the roof and people were really rooting for her to fall in love.” Does this “friend” think perhaps Roberto had anything to do with those high numbers?

Ali is carefully weighing her options whilst getting over her heartbreak before committing. “She hasn’t made up her mind about anything, but she also hasn’t ruled out the idea. It’s definitely been discussed,” the friend continues. “The show would love to get her to say yes.” Riiiight. Personally I think they should ask Roberto to be the next Bachelor instead!

WOULD YOU BE INTERESTED IN AN ALI & ROBERTO BREAKUP SPECIAL? DO YOU CARE? DO YOU BELIEVE THE NETWORK IS CONSIDERING ASKING ALI TO BE THE NEXT BACHELORETTE?
