Ben and Courtney are making everyone think all is forgotten and it’s time to move on. Fans of “The Bachelor” don’t whether to believe that or not. In the past two weeks both of them are working hard to convince the media and watchful eyes that they’re right back where they started. In all honesty, they’re doing a pretty good job of it. Courtney just gave an interview to Wetpaint that perfectly explains everything. She even trusts her fiance again. Almost everything that was said on “After the Final Rose” has done a 180. Ben and Courtney weren’t going to talk to the press or do any media tours, yet Courtney interviewed with Wetpaint. Is this the first of many other interviews to come? As Reality Steve wrote in his latest blog, a lot of money will be thrown their way to give interviews.
For the most part Ben and Courtney are trying to make things work. Courtney was hurt when Ben initially dumped her for a few weeks when he saw her claws come out during “The Bachelor” season. This led her to admit on “After the Final Rose” that she didn’t feel trusting of Ben. She seems to have changed her tune and said that Ben always had faith in her. She continued that she wouldn’t be with Ben if she didn’t trust him. Makes sense.
Now that the show is over maybe Ben and Courtney can actually have a fresh start without the distractions of “The Bachelor” on every week, which showed them at different stages in their lives six months ago. In fact, people are already more optimistic. Courtney told Wetpaint that she has people coming up to her offering advice and wishing her and Ben the best of luck in their relationship. It beats everyone wanting to hate her guts.
Obviously the two of them are willing to move on, but are they forgetting about everything that’s happened the last three months? Probably not. They’re forgiving each other. What happens next is anybody’s guess. Hopefully they’ll be happier than Brad and Emily were. That was heart-wrenching.
Ben and Courtney are about to go on a tropical vacation, but it’s not known where yet. Soon enough several web sites will post their destination. Lord knows they need a break after everything’s that happened.
