It looks like fans will have one more honorary Kardashian to keep up with when the show returns next season. But it isn’t another bundle of joy the audience will have to look forward to gazing upon — it’s former Bachelor Ben Flajnik!
HollywoodLife reports that Ben will be joining the show’s cast for an episode in the upcoming season, thanks to his close relationship with Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner. “It’s a scene with Kris and Jonathan Cheban visiting him at his winery,” an insider reveals to HollywoodLife.
While Kris has jokingly hinted that the two are having a romantic relationship, posting flirty photos of the pair together with captions like “date night,” Ben maintains that the two are keeping things platonic, despite reports to the contrary.
Ben, who has mentioned a girlfriend in recent interviews (who he swears up and down isn’t Kris), may enjoy Mrs. Jenner’s company enough to let her camera crews into his life, but the rumors about their alleged affair have apparently been getting to him.
A source close to the hunky winemaker revealed to Wetpaint that the tall tales being spun about his reported dalliances have him seeing red.
“Ben is telling friends it’s 100 percent not true,” says Ben’s pal. “He’s very agitated about the whole thing. It’s at the point where he’s not even laughing about it anymore — he’s really upset.”
