Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik might no longer be gracing our television screens every Monday, but they’re still all over gossip mags and the ever-buzzing interwebs. What has this Bachelor couple been up to this week? Check out the top stories below:
Take that, haters! Ben and Courtney cozy up on the red carpet, kissing and beaming at each other in front of the cameras. Also beaming: Courtney’s huge engagement ring.
Courtney says there’s "No date set,” adding, "We're engaged, dating, taking it slow. We love each other very much." Ben thinks the reason most Bachelor unions don’t end up lasting is because there’s such an emphasis on rushing down the aisle. you have so much pressure to move in together and set a date and all this kind of stuff," Ben added. "Let's figure out who we are together before we do any of that and take the pressure off."
Despite Reality Weekly’s cheeky assertion that Courtney is obviously pregnant (because she’s been “emotional”), the 28-year-old model insists she’s not having a Bachelor baby anytime soon. “It’s amazing what they'll come up with to sell a few magazines,” she laughs, definitively adding, “NO, I’m not pregnant!”
Ben and sister Julia spent last weekend in Seattle, attending the Taste Washington wine event on behalf of Envolve wines. But it wasn't all work and no play! Ben tweeted a photo of his brunch at local restaurant Sitka & Spruce — where he and Julia dined with fellow Bachelor alums Jason and Molly Mesnick.
After only four hours home in San Francisco, Ben hopped back on a plane and flew to Vegas to attend more wine events, tweeting "Wooo. @envolvewines first tradeshow. Let's sign some distributors!" Earlier, Ben tweeted a photo of his posh suite at the Luxor Hotel. Not a bad life, Mr. Flajnik!
