Ben on split with Courtney: 'I got out at the right time'
Former 'Bachelor' confused about ex-fiancée's new relationship
Former "Bachelor" Ben Flajnik has confessed he is left confused after learning of ex-fiancée Courtney Robertson's new relationship with "Bachelorette" alumnus Arie Luyendyk Jr.
Just weeks after the winemaker's split with his fiancée of about a year, Robertson was photographed cozying up with Emily Maynard's former flame in their homestate of Arizona. And now that Robertson has confirmed she is currently dating the Indy race car driver, Flajnik is questioning her actions and whether he really even knew her at all. He tells People magazine, "I'm glad there is a new guy. I see certain things in the media and I wonder, 'Did I ever really know her?' I try to avoid it all together. I look at these staged photos of the two of them and I'm like: 'Why is she doing this?'"
Despite his confusion over her actions so soon after their breakup, Flajnik assures that their split came at exactly the right time in their relationship. He adds, "The girl that I loved never wanted to be famous and I look at these set-ups and I think I got out at the right time."
Whoa Ben, she was such a devil, sometimes Ben we need to go thru hell to see her true
self, You got taken, with false love talk, we saw it coming, she just had this look on her face
that was full of lies, and pretence, I think You had sunglasses on, the whole time, but now
You, Ben, will find true LOVE, and not someone fake, do not stop looking, there are GOOD
Women out there, You just haven't been where these Women are, go grocery shopping at
night, there are Women all over the asles, looking for the ripe fruit!!!
He apparently did not go back and watch any of the episodes of the show afterwards, or it would have been made painfully obvious way before now. I only saw one episode (the only episode of this gosh-awful travesty of a t.v. show) and all I could think of was the con she was pulling on him. Why are contestants still not getting it that this is a game show and the ultimate prize is 15 minutes of fame? Seriously, who in their right mind would go on this show looking for a serious relationship - they cast all these young, fit, telegenic people who are financially well off enough to quit work for a few months....if you have that much going for you and you still can't get a date in your own town, you're damaged goods.
