Ben Flajnik

Instagram Roundup: Erika Jayne, Kristin Cavallari, Shannon Beador, Briana DeJesus, & More!

Thanks to Valentine’s Day, there were a lot of reality TV stars posting on social media this week. From the couples photos, to the proud single ladies, to the mother/daughter valentines, there were a lot of sweet photos to choose from for this week’s edition of Instagram Roundup.

Southern Charm alum Landon Clements shared a Valentine’s Day photo with former Bachelor lead Ben Flajnik at a winery. Was this a date? A friend date? A reach for attention? Or something else entirely? Porsha Williams shared a photo with giant bouquet of flowers with a caption about a secret admirer.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians star Kris Jenner, has been spotted with former Bachelor star Ben Flajnik periodically since announcing her separation from Bruce Jenner. Rumors were rampant that the 58-year-old momager extraordinaire and the 31-year-old winery owner were dating and at the very least had an ulterior motive for constantly being photographed together. Now, In Touch Weekly claims that they can put all the rumors to rest.

According to the magazine, Bachelor Ben is hanging out with the reality megastar in order to help score himself a new reality gig. A source revealed to In Touch why they might constantly be hanging out together. "He's using her," says the source. "He wants a new reality show."

Just when I thought pimp momager Kris Jenner couldn't get any worse, she posts the above picture of herself on Instagram (captioned "Date Night"–gag) sporting tween duck face and dining with Francine from the PBS cartoon Arthur. On the heels of the tabloids covers touting a not-so-secret romance between the icky reality star and former Bachelor Ben Flannel, er, I mean Flajnik

And what does poor estranged husband Bruce Jenner think of all this messiness? For his sake, I hope he realizes that life is far better out of Kris' klutches. I wonder if he ever gets the itch to spill what he knows about loyal and doting wife. We all know if the tables were turned, she'd do it in a heartbeat!



Delusionye strikes again, y'all!

I always assumed Kim Kardashian's new blonde hair was in an attempt to look like Beyonce, but nope – turns out that's not the right blonde icon. Because according to Kanye West, Kim is the new Marilyn Monroe. I really just cannot even dignify that with a comment except to burst out laughing. This is your brain on egotrip, kids! 

Speaking to Chicago's Power 105 Radio, Kanye continued to spout off in yet another insanity-laced rant. I mean it's bad enough he tried to say Kim is better than Michelle Obama (she's not), but now he's comparing his creativity to that of Disney innovator Walt Disney. “I’m more like, a Walt Disney or something.”



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 titled I 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,"  Courtney said 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 Bachelor crush 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 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!

Another season, another slew of reality series!  As we head into the summer months, we need even more mindless television to distract us from the fact that the weather is beautiful and we're all stuck inside working for a living.  I have to say, Ryan Seacrest's channel is stepping up to the plate–and stepping away from the Kardashians–to bring us a whole gamut of new entertainment.

According to an E! press release, we have lots to look forward to in the vein of new reality shows from the network.  From the boys of The Wanted to the WWE to the gray flannel clad Bachelor (you know who I'm talking about!), there is sure to be something for everyone!


Leave it to Ashley "Build-A-Bear" Hebert to buck the system when it comes to wedding etiquette.  Seriously, someone get this girl an Emily Post book stat!  No, I'm being too hard on Ashley and her fiancé J.P. Rosenbaum.  I should be applauding the Bachelorette pair for actually making it down the aisle given the curse that seems to plague all relationships born of the Bachelor franchise.  Did you know that out of twenty-four seasons there have been twenty-one engagements that failed?  I mean, yes, two of those engagements belonged to both Brad Womack and former flame Emily Maynard, but those odds aren't good!  My math is bad…I realize that Emily's engagement to Brad doesn't factor in, but I feel like it is worth mentioning.  Lots of failed relationships!

Of course, when Chris Harrison talks about the most dramatic rose ceremonies ever I never thought that he would try to orchestrate the most dramatic televised wedding ever.  I don't know whether to be disgusted or proud for what will surely be Bachelor Pad style television.  Slow clap, Mr. Harrison, slow clap.
