The Bachelor: Courtney Robertson’s Best Friend Speaks Out

February 06, 2012 08:00 AM by Megan Thompson


The Bachelor’s Courtney Robertson has definitely been named this season’s bad girl.  It seems the young model has rubbed everyone the wrong way, everyone that is except Ben Flajnik.  Now Courtney Robertson’s best friend is speaking out and defending her BFF. Keep reading to find out what Courtney’s friend has to say.

Yes, it’s another story about Courtney Robertson. She is the girl all the the women love to hate on this season of The Bachelor on ABC.  Courtney has found a way to annoy the women in the house, and most women in America, with her “winning” phrase and then her ploy to skinny dip with Ben. 

One lady is speaking out and defending Courtney, her best friend.  Fellow model, Carrie Tivador, spoke exclusively with WetPaint.com to tell America how great Courtney is. ”We’re both down to earth and neither of us is interested in the fame thing. That’s  really rare in LA! We both just want to do good work and stay low-key,”  Carrie says about Courtney. 

We all know that The Bachelor is a TV show and producers do love good characters.  That is exactly what Carrie thinks has happened to Courtney this season, she is being edited as the bad girl and the whole story is not being shown.  Carrie explains, “I think the producers want a good story, so they’re editing the footage to make one. She also said and did a lot of nice things for the other girls, but that’s not being shown. And you don’t see how badly the other girls ganged up on her. They see how much Ben likes her and, to be honest, some of them were downright cruel. To me, Emily seems like the ringleader.”

If rumors are true, Ben does give Courtney Robertson the final rose.  If so, it will be very interesting to see how their relationship plays out. 

Do you think Courtney Robertson has just been given a bad rap this season?  Let us know what you think, leave us a comment below.

    Personally, I think Courtney seems like a lot of fun and has some life to her. I am another woman and to me, her playfulness and openess is refreshing.

    If you want to stay low key, why are you on national tv setting yourself up for all of this?

    Somehow I find it very hard to believe Courtney isn’t all about fame and money

    It’s not like she didn’t know what she was getting
    into when she signed up for this show

    I think that it is difficult to come to any rational conclusion about any one lady in the group because the producers of the show will edit everything in a way to portray the “story” as they want it to unfold.

    The short of it is that the batting average of the bachelors/bachelorettes are pretty bad. The producers may do better by allowing the show to unfold naturally, no editing, no posturing, let it be more of a reality show……….the ratings might just go up.

    If she is being edited badly, then the things they are leaving in still do not portray her as a nice person either.

    Most low key people I know don’t go skinny dipping on national tv.

    There can’t possibly be THAT much editing being done. Even that being said, facts are facts…she HAS been a bitch and if Ben chooses her, he’s a complete idiot. This show gets more stupid each season.

    A) You do not become a model if you aren’t seeking some level of fame.

    B) You do not go on “The Bachelor” if you aren’t seeking some level of fame.

    C) If she really hates the spotlight, she should take solace in knowing that no one will remember who she is when the show is over.

    EXCUSE ME ?????
    Courtney has made her bed, now she has to lay in it….OH WAIT !, she probably already has in the water skinny dipping….great display of character.
    She’s a witch and plays the role VERY well. We all know that there has to be a “bad girl” and a “good girl” up til the very end. If Ben does chose Courtney, he will be sorry. She’s proven she will do ANYTHING to get what she wants without thinking of the harm it may do others.
    I for one, PRAY that I can turn the TV on this next week and see her sorry face in regards to Ben not giving her a rose. We all know that that will not happen. She’ll be there until the end for the ratings….shame shame shame on “The Bachelor” programming. You are teaching young people that it’s ok to stab other’s in the back if that’s what it takes to get what you want….great job guys.

    I think the friend is probably just like Courtney. I wonder who paid her to run interference in Ben and Courtney’s behalf? NO AMOUNT OD EDITING CAN MAKE A PERSON LOOK GOOD WHEN THERE IS OVERWHELMING FOOTAGE SHOT OF HER BEING A TOTAL ………..unmentionable. Courtney deserves this flack she is getting and she, her parents, bff know it!!!!

    I think this Courtney girl is exactly how television is portraying her. She comes off as a shallow mean girl. Honey, your body can only get you so far………. at some point men are going to expect some substance.

    Courtney is awful, just full of herself, I think she just wants to win to prove to everyone how great she is because she is a model.

    Beauty is more the what the eye or camera sees. Courtney’ s friends really tell her that she has came across as the ugliest person in the world not to say a slut also.

    the producers can only edit OUT … they cannot CREATE what was never there … i see enough to dislike her choices of words and behavior … to see insincerity … i’m for kacie b … all the way … sweet, unassuming, compassionate … which courtney is NOT …

    Courtney is horrid. She is embarrassing and gives models a bad name. I hope Ben watches the show and cringes at his decision every time he sees her act like a fool that is only in it to win. The saddest part is that she has no depth and he is taken by her appearance. Her personality is awful. Nothing about her seems authentic. He has it coming to him. What a waste of an experience for him. But he will learn…..the hard way.

    This chick is the definition of Narcissistic personality disorder. Craaaazy. And kind of sounds like her friend is too, saying “we” when she is suppose to be talking about Courtney. HAHA

    Courtney, at least, is what she is, no matter what.
    You take Ali Fedotowsky. She came off MEAN, JEALOUS, VINDICTIVE AND MANIPULATIVE in Jake’s season.

    Then the producers got hold of this, manipulated her on screen time more, and produced a fake controlling what they wanted to be as an America’s Sweetheart.

    Fast forward, Ali is back to being alone. Even gorgeous Roberto could only take so much of this skank. He wanted a real wife, a real life and what he got was a lazy self indulgent famewhore who couldnt wait till it was 5 o’clock somewhere to crack her first bottle of vino open.

    Bitch never tried to be a fiance/wife. Wanted to be waited on hand and foot while Roberto worked ten to twelve hour days and she still expected him to provide dinner to her, party, drink. Screw her.

    Game up Ali. GAME OVER.

    Go away, disappear, get a real job. You are not a star. You have no discernable talent whatsoever. You are just a dumb polish girl who will not age well, will get fat and homely. No hot guy wants that shit.

    I think that Courtney is exactly as she is seen on TV. No one put words into her mouth or altered her attitude; her mean spirit. She is choosing to wear little or no clothes on a family show, and that speaks volumes about her. If ABC did not show these things, they would be negligent of not showing the true person. Of course, things are not totally black and white; no one or few are all one way with no touch of the other. Meaning, of course, Courtney has some positives; that is taken for grated. It’s the negatives that are not known if not shown.

    Carrie….you really think people are going to believe that bull? What you see is what you get. THE MODEL is a skank…Ben is an idiot…and their 15 min. of fame will be up soon, hopefully.

    Also, you calling Emily “the ringleader” is such a crock. Courtney probably wishes she had half the class and brains Emily has. You’re comparing a bright, lovely young lady to a sleazy person who is ugly inside and out.

    Carrie, my dear, Emily is a classy indicidual. Courtney thinks class is what she used to go to while in school. That’s the only class she is familiar with. Your friend is an ugly person, inside and out.

    Down to earth and low key my hyde. Let’s say for instance that everything she said was true about Courtney. A smart down to earth girl would have said no to all of this nonsense, PERIOD, and skinny dipping is certainly not low key, at least not in the real world. They can’t play the blame game with ABC. That’s just an excuse.

    Coutney is nothing but a coniving bitch! I can not stand how the hell she acts so damn childish and immature. She is stuck on herself and Ben is friggin stupid keeping her around..He was warned and I hope he gets his heart broke so he can see just what a bitch she is! I can’t stand watching the damn show she makes me want to jump in the tv an hit her in the damn mouth!

    Is Courtney related to Vienna? Same sleazy me, me me mold. I’d like to feel badly for Ben but ahhh no. He brought it on himself.Really? Nice character. Skinny dipping with a room full of hopefuls who are trusting you and believeing in the process just steps away. Ahhh well he will wake up when it’s too late. Destined to be alone again. Too bad LOVE LOVE LOVE Kacie B ! Linzie …zzzz zzz Enough said. Oh well, what goes around….just saying.

    Jeez people! How can anyone who doesn’t know someone personally use words like “hate” and “bitch”? What the heck is everyone so angry at the girl for? She’s a human being like everyone else and probably has some obvious flaws, and maybe IS a bit stuck on herself, but the other girls on this show come off WAY worse to me as all they can talk about is how much they hate Courtney. Same goes to all you haters out there: If you need to spend that much energy expressing your dislike for someone else, you must like yourself even less. Find something more positive to direct your energy at.

    I LOVE Courtney. Why? Despite her antics, weird faces and potshots at the others, the girl is 100% original. She doesn’t care if she isn’t popular with the women, and is candid enough to express whatever she feels, even when it’s abrasive. She just lets it all hang out! I find it quite refreshing, actually.
    I watched them together on the Mayan ruins date, and I have to say there’s much more between Ben & Courtney than with any other of the ladies. Yes, it seems the rest of them are ‘better’ than Courtney in the moral character department, but I would be bored to tears in their company. There’s just no ‘zing’. Courtney is the zinger and that’s clearly what Ben finds so captivating ~ well, besides the obvious: the woman is drop-dead gorgeous, sort of a Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio meets Michelle Pfeiffer. You go, Courtney!
