Nothing like reality TV to break up a few relationships! This year several reality stars called it quits on their longtime relationships, sometimes shocking the viewing public. And some PR stunts just didn't pan out. Unfortunately many of those meltdowns included plenty of scandal!
Courtney Robertson, winner of Bachelor season 16 and Ben Flajnik's balls heart, has scored a book deal. She apparently thinks we still care about her. Or Ben. Or her and Ben. I'm 0 for 3, you? But, if she insists, her book is titledI Didn't Come Here To Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain.
Courtney previously claimed she was shocked to find out ABC edited her to be the season's bitch, saying, "Never in a million years did I think I gave them the material to edit me as the villain."
"There are two sides to every story," Courtneysaid about her book deal. "I wanted a chance to talk about what went down from my perspective because I think there are a lot of misconceptions out there about me."
Is San Francisco on your bucket list (it's certainly on mine!)? Do you love delicious cuisine and fine wine (yes and yes!)? Are you still not over your Bachelorcrush on Ben "Flannel" Flajnik (well, um…er…)? If you answered yes to all of these questions, you need to get yourself on the waiting list for this gilt.com special. Right. Now.
At only $2500, it's a steal. The small purchase price entitles you to three (yes, THREE!) hours with Ben, as he shows you his fave neighborhood haunts and takes you to lunch and/or dinner. That's only $833.33 per hour, so it's practically free!
Are you ready for some MAJOR dirt from one of the former Bachelorettes? I promise her name doesn't sound like Hey Nerd! Ali Fedotowsky was the franchise's sweetheart, first leaving Jake Pavelkaduring his season and then finding romance (and then heartbreak) with Roberto Martinez. Of course, we already know those deets…we want to hear about what goes on behind the scenes. Ali reveals that she did the hippity dippity on just one of her overnight dates, but she admits it could have happened with more than one guy if one of her favorites hadn't headed back to his girlfriend before her season's end. She also shares that one former Bachelor (try to guess who before clicking below!) used to take girls into the bathroom on group dates to test the merchandise! I think you'll also be shocked to hear who she thinks was the victim of a very bad edit. This is juicy stuff, y'all!
Oh yeah, and then there's Sean Lowe. I jest…it's just that Ali's chat has some great little nuggets! ABC has announced a new twist in the realm of Bachelor specials. Also, Sean dishes why he is choosing abstinence until marriage. I guess that's a little dirt from Sean.
Am I the only one who doesn't think Sean Lowe is going to find true love on this season of the Bachelor? Trick question! Who actually does find love on this show…unless it's with fame? I'm looking at you, Maynard! Of course, we don't watch for the romance or the extremely realistic dating scenarios (who hasn't had a first date that involves a hot air balloon, open mic night at a famous comedy club, followed by swimming with penguins? Amateurs.), we watch for the drama.
This season, drama is named Tierra LiCausi. She's quite the competitor, isn't she? Maybe if these dudes were thinking with their brains instead of, well you know, they wouldn't fall for these crazies, but it happens every single time. Do the names Courtney Robertson and Vienna Girardi ring a bell (although, let's look at who they were each vying for…)?
Timing is everything, right? Bachelor couple Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson break up, the two are thrust back into the media spotlight, and Ben announces a new TV project… coincidence or good planning?
According to Wetpaint Entertainment, Ben and the E! network are teaming up to bring us a new reality series about Ben's Sonoma-based winery, Envolve. “It will be about the day-to-day business of the company,” Wetpaint's source said. “Both from the wine-making and the marketing angles."
The source added, "Right now, the show is in the very early stages.Contracts haven’t even been signed but things are moving along."
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.
