Courtney Robertson buries her head in the sand
Was Ben Flajnik cheating after the rose ceremony on The Bachelor? His betrothed Courtney Robertson says no way, despite the photographic evidence.
Is Ben Flajnik a big fat cheater? His fiancée says no way. The Bachelor winner Courtney Robertson says she completely trusts her true love and in reality the photos showing him kissing another woman are entirely innocent.
In an interview with WetPaint.com, Robertson said her first reaction to the snapshots was like WTF, but she has since bought Flajnik's excuses.
"Of course, initially it was upsetting. But at the end of the day, if I didn't trust him, I wouldn't be with him, period," she said.
"Here's the thing: I have a lot of platonic guy friends and Ben knows that. But I was very careful after the show wrapped not to get too close to them in public or put myself in a situation where a photo could be taken and something could be misconstrued."
"Ben just didn't have his guard up the way I did," Robertson rationalized. "He has a lot of female friends and he's a playful, flirty guy who likes to party with everyone. I get that about him and I'm completely fine with it. He's a really warm and social person."
"But he became a target. The tabloids hired people to follow him everywhere, just waiting for the chance to snap a photo of anything they could to make it look like he was doing something shady. I think you can take a photo and make it look like anything if you really want to."
"Am I thrilled about the photos? No. But I believe him when he says he didn't cheat," she said.
"After everything that was shown on TV and said about me, he stuck by me. He didn't walk away. He trusted and believed in the real me. I can't tell you how much that meant. So yeah, I'm definitely giving him that trust right back."
