This celebrity couple, who originally met on The Bachelor, are not living happily ever after. Though Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik did celebrate their celebrity engagement, they never made it down the aisle. Things post break-up got even worse when Robertson wrote a tell-all booked called I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villian. “The only backlash I got was from Ben himself,” said Robertson, according to UsMagazine.com. “I did hear from him. He was not happy. I got a couple of emails. I actually didn’t respond to his last email but I wish him well. He has moved on and I’ve moved on.”

This former Bachelor couple did not split amicably. What are some ways to reconcile after a bitter break-up?

Rumor has it that Courtney Robertson shared a smooch with Arie Luyendyk just after ending her engagement to Ben Flajnik a week ago, according to People. Robertson ended her engagement to Bachelor star Flajnik who confirmed it on Friday, though no details have been shared regarding the split. Regardless, the Bachelor winner locked lips with Bachelorette runner-up Luyendyk. It seems that Robertson is keeping it within the same franchise. Her former fiancé seemed bewildered regarding the turn of events. Robertson and Luyendyk went out for a dinner date that ended off with a goodnight kiss at the same restaurant that Robertson went to with her former fiancé during her home visit on the television show.

Ben Flajnik, the Bachelor from the show’s 16th season, and his final rose recipient, Courtney Robertson, have ended their eleven month relationship, according to UsMagazine.com. The couple explored Baker Beach, San Francisco in August, and Flajnik even commented on Twitter that it’d be an ideal location for their wedding ceremony. The pair seemed in love this summer, despite Flajnik’s rumored indiscretions four months after their November 2011 engagement. Before this recent split, the California winemaker’s proposal to Bachelorette Ashley Herbert was turned down in favor of competitor J.P. Rosenbaum.

It’s been over a week since Bachelor, Ben Flajnik gave out the final rose and made his big proposal to Courtney Robertson.  Since then, they’ve finally been able to make their first public outing together as a couple.  Flajnik uploaded a picture to instagram of the two, captioning it “1st pic out in public.”  They were spotted having dinner with two other guests in the North Beach neighborhood of San Francisco and an onlooker told UsMagazine.com, “She was wearing her ring and they looked cozy.”  But it took a lot for the couple to get to this point, for only three months after the engagement, Flajnik dumped Robertson and was soon after accused of cheating, being spotted with three females he later referred to as just “old friends.”  Hopefully that rough patch in their relationship is over, and they are able to move forward with their engagement.

Although they got engaged in Switzerland last November, things have been questionable between The Bachelor‘s Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson.  In the show’s After the Final Rose episode, Chris Harrison asked the duo about cheating rumors which have been circulating about Flajnik.  Although Flajnik ultimately denied the rumors, according to UsMagazine.com, there’s indisputable evidence in the form of three photos catching him in the act.  The photos supposedly prove that he’s had “more than friend” relations with at least three women since being engaged to Robertson.  One insider says, “Ben did not seem to care who saw him, considering his status on a prime-time reality show about finding true love.”  Perhaps the truth will come out soon!

Matterhorn Madness! It was the ending we saw coming. Courtney Robertson got her ring. America groaned. Life went on.

And so, we’ve come to the conclusion of the 16th season of The Bachelor. While it would be difficult to attach superlatives like “best” to the rhetorical descriptive of this season, “most weird” would definitely be a fine way to describe it. This season was beyond weird. Aside from the usual batch of girls who didn’t quite make the cut, we saw a strange dynamic develop between Ben Flajnik, CourtneyRobertson and Lindzi Cox. You would imagine that, at first glance, Lindzi would be the runaway favorite. A girl like Courtney, who chafes and bothers everyone she’s in the same room with, shouldn’t have made the cut. Lindzi is a self-made, sharp, talented professional who sustains and supports herself. However, Courtney is, ahem, a skinny dipping model. Unfortunately, for America that’s what Ben seemed to be looking for in a wife. Lindzi was sent packing.  Ben worried that the feelings “wouldn’t last a lifetime.” These are the ebbs and flows of The Bachelor. Below, Jesse gives his take on Ben’s big decision and whether he flubbed it, or not.

Nicki Sterling saddled back to Texas after falling in love and spending the night in the fantasy suite with The Bachelor’s Ben Flajnik.  The former contestant told People she was blindsided when she didn’t get a rose, but believed it boiled down to him having stronger feelings for the other two women.  “Hearing him refer to me as the “dark horse” lets me know he enjoyed my company in the beginning, but didn’t have a strong connection until the end.   I probably had stronger feelings for him sooner than he had for me,” Sterling said.  While she admits that she’s still in process of getting over everything [from the show], Sterling is at a good point in her life and is in no rush to start dating again.  “It’s hard to fall for somebody that doesn’t fall back.  The idea of dating hasn’t crossed my mind since I left Switzerland,” Sterling said.  “I’m going to take a while to put myself out there 100 percent like on the show.  I’m confident it will happen.  I’m just not in any hurry.”

On last Monday’s all new episode of The Bachelor, Courtney Robertson realized that Ben Flajnik was having his doubts about her because of the way she’s been acting with the other girls.  Robertson was quick to pull Flajnik for some one-on-one time in Switzerland to explain herself.  In high hopes of gaining his full trust back, she desperately told him, “I’d say something and they’d jump on me.  I had my guard up.”  Little does Flajnik know, there’s a lot more she said to her cast members that he wouldn’t be so happy about.

On this week’s episode of The Bachelor, it was time for Ben Flajnik to narrow the girls down to two.  The scene for the infamous one-on-one fantasy suite dates was set in Switzerland where Nicki, Lindzi and Courtney had the opportunity to get some alone time with Ben.  In the middle of it all, was an unexpected twist.  Kacie B. decided to return.  She timidly knocked on Ben’s hotel room door and wanted him to give her a reason why he let her go. His reasoning being simply because they were “world’s apart.”  Personally, we didn’t think he could muster up the courage to say that her parents were too old-fashioned for his taste (e.g., they were opposed to having their daughter move in with him before she was married).  Kacie then continued the conversation by letting Ben know that Courtney was up to no good and could break his heart.  This all happened directly following Ben’s one-on-one talk with Courtney about this very issue.  Nevertheless, when it came to the final rose ceremony it wasn’t Courtney being sent home; it was Nicki.  Sometimes, a man has to do, what a man has to do.  And, then there were two!  As if we didn’t know who was “winning!”   Here’s a look at the weekly Q&A from your resident Bachelor Couple, Ann and Jesse Csincsak:

1. Overall, what did you think of tonight’s episode? What was your favorite part?

Jesse: It’s was very uneventful!  I was glad to see Kacie come back; it made it a little more interesting.

Ann: I enjoy watching the show more towards the end because you’re a little more invested in the girls and who goes home and who stays. In the beginning, I don’t care as much about who gets cut!

Courtney Robertson’s fake wedding vows on The Bachelor may have been sweet music to Ben Flajnik’s ears but it seemed to be a bit too familiar to Sex and the City aficionados.  Complete with a stand-in officiant, Robertson set up a mock wedding in a local park of her hometown of Scottsdale, Arizona during her hometown date.  While wheedling Flajnik into writing original vows, the model repeated the same vows as the Sex and the City character Carrie Bradshaw, played by Sarah Jessica Parker.  “I’m looking for love.  Real, passionate, can’t-live-without-each-other-love.  When I look at you from across the room, I know that the key to your happiness is the key to mine.  Ben, I want to love you and treat you right.  Every day and every night,” Robertson told him.  “I hope you know I’m 100% ready for marriage and so happy I found you.  I want you to know that I’m in love with you.”

Forget the mock ceremony, let’s begin with whether or not a woman should propose to a man!

This week on The Bachelor Season 16 with Ben Flajnik, we were taken to the horse country, the Bible Belt, a Texas-style dress-up party and a mock wedding.  Yes, three women and a wedding.  Lindzi got to show Ben what it was like to race horses, ride horses and grow up with horses all around her.  She said she rode before she even walked.  Nikki’s fun-loving spirit led Ben into a Texan cowboy store where they both bought hats and boots and sported being a Texan all day.  Ben said it was something that he always wanted to do.  Courtney invited Ben not only to meet her family but to meet his future wife (her) in a full-course wedding with an officiant and all.  They exchanged vows in what some Twitter followers say was a rip-off of Sex and the City.  Overall, the parents seemed down-to-earth and warm towards Ben.  However, the one family that didn’t welcome him as easily was Kacie B.  Unfortunately, their traditional values and lack of alcohol consumption (after all, Ben is a wine maker) probably got in the way of his feelings for her.  At the end of the episode, she was the one who was sent packing.

Welcome to Belize.   This week’s episode of ‘The Bachelor’ had quite a few break downs.  Lindzi gets a Blue Lagoon type date with Ben and they spend their date hunting for food caveman style.  They end the date by writing a fairy tale love note, putting it in a bottle and sending it out to sea (cheesy).  Nikki has break down #1 complaining that she needs a one-on-one with Ben.

Breakdown #2 was in full swing by Courtney after she becomes enraged at her ‘boyfriend’ for betraying her by giving Emily a date card.  Unfortunately for Emily, there was absolutely no on-air chemistry between them although viewers had to witness their disgusting display of tongue action (gross)!

Although Jennifer Fritsch was eliminated during the rose ceremony last week by The Bachelor‘s Ben Flajnik, she isn’t holding it against him.  That said, she is rooting for all the final girls but one, and that’s front-runner Courtney.  Fritsch claims to no longer be bitter towards Flajnik for his surprising elimination, but says that Courtney is not the girl for him.  She believes the skinny-dipping model is in it for her career, and she doubts that she even has feelings for Flajnik.  In her opinion, Courtney is as bad of a person as she’s portrayed to be on the show. In an interview with People, Fritsch said she would advise The Bachelor to “run for the hills” when it comes to this contestant.

Welcome to Panama.  This season of ‘The Bachelor’ has taken a turn for the… weird.  First, we have serial nudist Courtney Robertson who continues to use her body to command Ben’s attention.  While on the other end of the sexual spectrum, we have prude-gone-wild Jamie who gives full on kissing instructions to Ben.  And, somewhere caught in the middle is Blakely who during the two-on-one date with Rachel, reveals an over-the-top visual board to Ben fantasizing the non-existent romance she was having with him.  Jamie and Blakeley were sent packing.

The one-on-one date was with Kacie B., who Ben took to a  private island (surprise!).  Over the course of the date Kacie divulges that she once had an eating disorder.  Opening up to Ben gets her a rose.  On the group date, the girls are taken a tribal village in Panama. The girls all don traditional Panamanian tribal wear – over their bikinis. Courtney, however, decided that beads alone would do the job.  Ben didn’t look so upset about it.  However, Lindzi was the one receiving the rose much to Courtney’s dismay.

The drama shifted to Puerto Rico this week, where Ben and the remaining ladies visited the island of Vieques.  Nicki got the first date, but with a downpour of rain and no umbrellas, the duo was forced to do some shopping for “authentic” and dry Puerto Rican threads.  Ben gave Nicki a rose that evening.

For the group date, Ben took the ladies to the historic Roberto Clemente Stadium where they were divided into two teams and went head-to-head in a baseball game.  The winning team would enjoy a wonderful beach party with Ben.  Kacie B.’s team won and she got the group rose that night but directly following it, Courtney stole Ben at fourth base with some baseball playing of her own.
