Ben Flajnik has been a busy guy recently: Making wine, selling his time for $2,500 on Internet coupon sites, and even stirring up rumors that he and the recently separated Kris Jenner are an item! We don’t know how he does it, but we’re pretty sure a strict regimen of practice group dates and yodeling on a Swiss mountain are involved. Because, obviously. Anyway, he has a new lady friend and she’s in his industry — but not the reality TV one.
Back at the end of September, Kris Jenner swung by Ben’s Envolve Winery to chill with the floppy-haired Season 16 Bachelor. But she wasn’t alone — family pal Jonathan Cheban was right there with them, because wine. Naturally, it wasn’t long before InTouch reported that Ben and Kris are, like, totally an item.
A source told the gossip mag, “She has a crush [on Ben]” and that the Kardashian matriarch and total dreamboat have “been spending a lot of time together.” So, what’s the truth? Laughter, all the laughter. From Ben, that is.
Before you get all jealous and start mailing dead roses to Kris, it’s not true. "I did Kris' talk show a few months back, brought my wines on the show. Of course I offered her a visit to the winery whenever she had a chance," Ben explained to Us Weekly. "That's how we met. Recently, she ended up contacting me about a month ago or so and asked me if they could film an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians at the winery. I of course obliged."
But don’t think that he’s just waiting around for you to use your $2,500 voucher for three hours of lovemaking (aka staring deeply in your eyes). "I've been dating this girl. She's local, she's in the wine business," he says, without telling her name. "We've been dating, she's super great and super smart. It's been a few months at this point."
Um, hey Lothario, good for you. But why are you selling promises your heart can’t keep? Rude.
