Each week on ABC‘s The Bachelor, we watch as Courtney Robertson manipulates Ben Flajnik, so she can get one step closer to winning. According to friends of the model though, Courtney is not an evil villain – instead, they blame the show’s editing for Courtney’s portrayal. Read on for more…
Courtney Robertson has become one of the most hated bachelorettes in the history of The Bachelor. Now, some of Courtney’s friends have come forward to reveal that Courtney is really not an evil person. Say what? Yes, one childhood friend of Courtney Robertson, a gal named Liz recently told ABC: “It is heartbreaking to watch your friend’s reputation being slandered. Courtney is one of the most honest and loyal people you will ever meet, and there are ‘anonymous sources’ out there trying to discredit her character.”
Courtney’s friend went on to reveal that she had given the popular gossip magazine, US Weekly, a positive interview about Courtney, but the magazine chose to omit all of her positive comments about the show’s most controversial bachelorette, but they did manage to post everything negative that they could find. Liz continued by claiming that it is the editing of the show that has us all believing that Courtney Robertson is an evil villain, and while some of that may be true, we don’t believe that it is all the fault of the show’s editors.
Meanwhile, ABC spoke to another pal of Courtney Robertson’s, who reiterated everything that Liz had stated, added: “The fact that she is being persecuted for things she said is ironic when her words pale in comparison to the media’s portrayal of her. People need to take a step back and take a look at themselves before they start throwing stones. I will say, knowing her sense of humor, I found the majority of her comments hilarious. I guess a joke just doesn’t have the same effect when taken out of context.”
Both of Courtney’s friends went on to say that Courtney is one of the kindest people they know, and possibly one of the truest friends you can find. What do you think? Is Courtney really as evil as she is portrayed, or is it all in the editing? Comment and tell us what you think!
