The Bachelor: Courtney Robertson’s Ex Defends Her

February 21, 2012 04:00 PM by Lisa Princ

We recently learned that Courtney Robertson’s friends blamed the editing on ABC‘s The Bachelor for how evil Courtney is portrayed each week, and now a former flame is standing up for the model as well. Coming to Courtney’s defense, is not just any ex-boyfriend, but none other than Cavan Clark, the guy she supposedly dumped to be on the show! More after the jump.

Courtney Robertson sure has been portrayed as probably the most deviant bachelorette in the history of The Bachelor, but so many folks seem to be coming to her defense these days. Is that a sign that Ben Flajnik ends up choosing her? Earlier today we learned that Courtney’s childhood friends felt the show’s editing was responsible for her portrayal, and now, her ex-boyfriend Cavan Clark is speaking up. Courtney Robertson and Cavan Clark made headlines when it was reported that Courtney dumped him for the show, and despite the rumors, Cavan Clark spoke with Life & Style Magazine, denying that those rumors had any truth.

Cavan Clark told the magazine of Courtney Robertson: “Unlike what you see on the show, she’s actually a nice girl, and I still keep in touch with Courtney and her family. We dated, and after it ended she went on The Bachelor. Life happens – people fall in love and people break up.” As for her behavior on the show, Cavan says: “She’s obviously doing everything she can to win, seeing that it is a reality dating competition.” While it sounds as though Cavan Clark has no hard feelings, we still can’t help but wonder why, all of a sudden, is everyone popping up to defend Courtney Robertson?

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!

    I grew up feeling like no one would love me because I wasn’t beautiful. I owe this fear partially to movies and shows like the Bachelor. The movies always portrayed the less attractive girls as the slapstick comedian who was cast for the laughs. She was the funny sidekick to the beautiful heroine who finds love in the end, while her very plain Jane friend is overlooked. I could never imagine the plain Jane making love. After all, she didn’t have a perfect body. There are only a handful of films like The Truth about Cats and Dogs where this isn’t true, although even Jeanine Garaffalo’s (sp?) character in that movie was pretty. But just recently I read a very funny and heartwarming novel that helped me to see that true love can come to the plain Janes (and Joe)s of the world. It is called What the Heart Sees by Janice Zick. I found it at the Desert Breeze Publishing.com site. Oops, no spaces. What a breath of fresh air it was. I love, love, loved it. I laughed and cried throughout the book.

    Even if Courtney’s friends see her “playing with kittens, puppies and cherbic babies” or “helping little old ladies across the street”, how do they explain the Courtney on tv who is lying, sneaky, manipulative and vindictive?

    What I see on tv is a Courtney of “two faces”. She shows one side when she is with friends – or – the somebody she is trying to manipulate for whatever purpose, and another more malicious side with those she is in competition or just “for the hell of it”.

    Her friends need to get real. They need to realize we “are seeing what we are seeing”. Courtney may go to church on Sunday, but on Monday she can do a good job of conniving.

    guys…it’s a reality show. She was really insecure, under a lot of pressure, and obviously really wanted to win. She’s a model, who’s used to competition and having to fight tooth and nail to get what she wants. It’s just want the industry is like. add nerves, living confined with the other girls, editing (like the evil background music), her awkwardness, her creepy voice, and some missteps on her part, and voila: instant villain.
