Former “Bachelor” contestant Courtney Robertson is making headlines for her new book, “I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain,” and she stopped by Access Hollywood to open up about her former lovers.
Here’s some of what the reality star/model said about some of the famous names in her tell-all:
On her relationship ups and downs with “Bachelor” Ben Flajnik: “I was really falling in love with him from night one. The first time I saw him I thought he was really attractive. …Ultimately we were very different. I never felt like a priority – I was just living in his world. … While the show was airing, he got really distant. He needed to clear his head. We were still talking, but I needed his support.”
On photos that alleged Ben was cheating on her: “There were pictures with his hands on a girl’s butt. It looked like they were kissing, but you couldn’t really tell. I chose to believe him when he said, ‘We didn’t do anything.’ I thought we had gotten to a point where we were going to try to make it work. It was nine months of trying.”
On her relationship with Jesse Metcalfe: “We dated, more off than on, we had a couple good runs here and there.”
On “Entourage” star Adrian Grenier’s qualities (other than his reportedly blessed size): “He’s such a nice guy, a normal guy, very eco-friendly. A good egg.”
On Gerard Butler’s allure: “He was so charming, when he looks at you it looks like he’s talking into your soul.”
“I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain” will be available on June 24.
