Bachelor Ben Update From After the Final Rose With Courtney Robertson

Bachelor Ben

Bachelor Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson revealed on the season finale “After the Final Rose” Monday night that they broke up for a while since the tapping back in November. Ben admitted that “her negative vibes on the show led to Courtney and I not talking for a period of time. We were essentially broken up.”

Bachelor Ben told Chris Harrison that he started to watch the show while it aired on TV and he witness the catty behavior of Courtney that he didn’t think was her. “It’s been a rough ride. The woman that I saw on TV isn’t the Courtney that I know. Those are the moments and the instances that led to Courtney and I not talking for a time while the show aired. We were essentially broken up.”

Courtney Robertson later apologized for her behavior that he saw when watching The Bachelor episodes on TV. When she walked out on the “After the Final Rose” special on Monday night she was booed from the audience. “I feel definitely responsible. It’s a really hard situation living in a house with 25 women all dating the same guy. It’s just a very unnatural situation to be in, and it brought out the worst in me.”

Photos of Bachelor Ben kissing other women came out with negative media coverage. He told Chris Harrison, “The negative tabloid coverage became so much that I just cracked. I needed a few weeks to reassess and didn’t speak to Courtney for that time.”

The couple tried to distract the media with good news by Courtney trying on wedding dresses to help divert the negative press with Ben. Bachelor Ben said those pictures of him alledgly kissing other women weren’t true. “On my father’s grave, I haven’t kissed another woman, I haven’t hooked up with another woman. I haven’t cheated on Courtney. I am not kissing those women in those photos. It’s as simple as that.”

Ben came back out on the Monday Night special of “After the Final Rose” and sat down next to Courtney and told Chris Harrison, “We’re engaged, we’re in a good place. Now that the main part of the show and the negativity is gone, it can only get better.”

Bachelor Ben added, “It hasn’t been an easy ride. 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. That was my coping mechanism, but you know that’s not how I operate in real life. We’re about to start ‘real life.'”

Bachelor Ben then placed the Neil Lane platinum diamond engagement ring back on Courtney’s finger and said, “There was never anything wrong with us. What’s wrong was everything that surrounded us.”

    It is too bad that Courtney had to portray herself so badly on the show, she is what caused everyone to “hate” her. Had she been nice in the first place they wouldn’t be going through all of this. Hopefully they can put it all behind them and enjoy their few months of happiness before they break up like all of the contestants before them!
