Courtney I still love you. Please take me back. I long to go skinny dipping with you again. I long to treat all the other girls with disrespect. I long to make a total fool of myself in front of the whole world. Please, please give me another chance. You are and always will be THE LOVE OF MY LIFE.
you benny

I grew up feeling like no one would love me because I wasn’t beautiful. I owe this fear partially to movies and shows like the Bachelor. The movies always portrayed the less attractive girls as the slapstick comedian who was cast for the laughs. She was the funny sidekick to the beautiful heroine who finds love in the end, while her very plain Jane friend is overlooked. I could never imagine the plain Jane making love. After all, she didn’t have a perfect body. There are only a handful of films like The Truth about Cats and Dogs where this isn’t true, although even Jeanine Garaffalo’s (sp?) character in that movie was pretty. But just recently I read a very funny and heartwarming novel that helped me to see that true love can come to the plain Janes (and Joe)s of the world. It is called What the Heart Sees by Janice Zick. I found it at the Desert Breeze Publishing.com site. Oops, no spaces. What a breath of fresh air it was. I love, love, loved it.

It suprises me how much america hates courtney. I watched the show and thought she didn’t like the women and wasn’t going to fake like she did. All the women on the show were truly hoping all the others would go home and their fake friendships were all a lie. Really, now, you are going to tell me on this kind of show, where your main goal is to win the heart of one man against 20+ women theres not the idea to “win” he guys heart? Really? Really!!!? She was mean to the girls. So what. She was never going to see them again, didn’t want to to be fake and the whole idea of the show is not to “win” the girls hearts but Bens! Besides how she treated the women, the girl has some skills when it comes to alluring Ben. It was genius. Did she play a game? Please, girls!! Don’t we all! There IS a game to play when you are dating, and if you don’t think so, you are not using your woman power to its fullest. If her flaw was that she didn’t treat the girls well….for all that kind of hate out there…there deeper issues inside those haters hearts. No one has thst kind of hate unless there is an insecurity. Look deep! Stop the hate!!

angela, i’m sorry, but if you think love is a game of tricking a man into falling for you, i feel sorry for you. relationships with people are formed by putting yourself out there with honesty and seeing if they do the same in exchange. you fall in love when you realize that what you are seeing in front of you is real and honest, and dependable. a person that will protect you and appreciate you and understand you. and for whom you will do the same. a woman may bounce her boobs around to get her chance at the mic, but ultimately, for it to work, it has to be based on honesty about who you are. it doesn’t have to do with tricking someone into thinking you’re something you’re not. i think you’re a pretty corrupt individual if you think that’s how it’s supposed to work, and i feel sorry for both you and whomever ends up with you (there’s a sucker in every crowd).

Please, gbtw, you are the one who I feel sorry for. the “game” is the courting process of dating. We all put on our best face in the beginning and slowly lower our walls down and once the attraction and chemistry is there, the begin the evaulate if this person fits into our life. But in the beginning, men and women but on the charm!! The game!! The courting!! Please, if you dont get this…you need to re-evaulate how you date. courtney has this in the bag! And woman who dont get this are the haters cause they have no idea how to work their womanhood!

i have a feeling you are much more experienced at ‘dating’ than i am, and that you’ll be ‘dating’ for quite some time now… good luck.

I completely agree with Angela. The only reason why Im commenting on this is because it is really unfair how the media attacks Courtney, and I mean people should have better things to do than to gain up on someone they never even met and come out and say all their opinions on her… thats kind of dumb to be honest, and it just shows that Courtney was right and that she really IS smarter and more interesting than the people hating on her. It is ufortunate that Courtney went on the show though as she has a more intellectual deep so obviously shes gonna get frustrated in pageant town with people she can only relate to on the most basic “knock knock whos there oh we’re having fun” kind of level.

bless your heart oda, you’ve got it backwards. smart people are able to relate to people on all different levels and can have an interesting conversation with most people b/c they are smart enough to find common ground. if courtney couldn’t find a way to relate to or have a meaningful conversation with one single woman in this group, it had nothing to do with her intellectual superiority. quite the opposite. pretty girls do have to deal with jealousy, but smart pretty girls have learned how to behave in a manner to get around it and have meaningful relationships with their peers. dumb pretty girls fall on the “hater” excuse and establish a self-fulfilling prophecy.

@ gbtw – your right on with your comments.

To Angela – regarding your comment – ‘We all put on our best face in the beginning and slowly lower our walls down ‘…Courtney DIDN’T put on her best face at all – she put on the true nasty one from the beginning with the exception of Ben. But that’s because she lied and manipulated Ben the whole way through. Ben on the other hand – comes across as dumber than a box of nails…

Ben should have taken the ‘Heads UP’ warnings but instead the other Head Came Up and ruled his brain.

Hey – maybe Courtney was really wanting Charlie Sheen and the Winning was to get HIS attention. She could be his Porn Queen LOL hahaha…

Huh? Are you kidding me? Courtney… Smart… Intellectual? I hardly think so. Did you hear any intellectualism going on between her and Ben? I didn’t. Did you hear then have any deep or philosophical discussions? Not really. She was caught up in her little girl voice with him and her childish mannerisms. That was all a bit disgusting to watch. She lavished him with her gooey sweetness while she poured out her venom on the girls. Then she had the gall to tell Ben she tried hard to be nice to them all. That was all BS. It amazes me that you did not pick up on that. Were you watching? Ben had some smart women who really loved him, but it was obvious he was not after smarts. He wanted the body, not the brains. If you don’t believe me, go watch it all over again.

Women of apparently yours & Courtney’s ilk prey on people, men & women alike, in pursuit of ‘winning’ as opposed to interacting with other human beings in search of a higher, deeper emotional, spiritual & physical connection. You justify predatory, barbaric, uncivilized behavior as a means to an end. Your definition of success is light years apart from the women you criticize because you are incapable of understanding their objective because you are missing that ‘sensitivity chip’ famously referenced years ago. It’s simply a matter of ‘for those who understand, no explanation is necessary, for those who don’t, none will suffice’. If you have few, if any women friends, like Courtney I imagine you rationalize their being ‘haters’ as the cause. Women recognize vipers like Courtney in short order & react accordingly. Make of it what you will.

Ceil, that quote of yours… “for those who understand, no explanation is necessary, for those who don’t, none will suffice,” was right on the money here. I pride myself on being intellectual as well as a romantic, and I agree that what you (I) understand cannot be understood unless they are playing on your (my) level. Well said. :)

Angela, I don’t dislike Courtney because she didn’t form friendships with any of the girls. It may very well be that she did not like any of them and had absolutely no interest in befriending any of them, which is fine, hey, to each his own. What I don’t like about her is that she went out of her way to mistreat the girls, which I think is a terrible thing to do and makes her a bully in my eyes. If you don’t like someone, fine, I know that I don’t like some people that I meet. But I also know that I am not going to go out of my way to hurt them for some kind of sick, personal thrill, which is exactly what she did. She got enjoyment out of hurting people, that’s my beef with Courtney.

Yeah! IKR! Although she was mean and straight forward but she had a point and is more far sighted than most other bachelorettes. I think if you try and get close to her, she’s actually pretty nice.

You guys are mean Courtney made some mistakes but you know what every one deserves forgiveness! No saying what she did was right but the only reason she went on and appoligized is because BEN told her to! OBVIOUSLY they end up together because Ben is blind to see the Lindsay is the right choice for him! Not skinny dipping, back stabbing courtney!

So are you FOR Courtney or against her? Sure she deserves a second chance. She had dozens of them every day she was on the show. And she ignored every single one of them. And she even denied a 2nd chance to Emily who gave her a sincere and gracious apology. Her meanness was not a momentary lapse for an otherwise kind and gentle person. No. Her behavior was ongoing and deliberate. For that, I don’t think an apology is good enough. Persons in other situations, such as spousal abusers, that show this propensity for bad behavior usually need counseling and have to do a lot of soul searching before they really change. From the looks of it, she didn’t want to “show that much emotion again” at the WTA taping when she offered up her apology. (In case you missed it, she and a producer were discussing this back stage into live mic and everyone overheard them.) So is she deserving of another second chance? I am not sure she has really changed. If I could see that she had, I might be open to that. But an apology must carry true contrition and a behavior change to count, don’t you think?

She was rude and mean but she had a point. Emily is wasting her time.

Just like Jillian the trainer who was just an actress playing the part of a trainer on the Biggest Loser..all to get a ratings boost we have Courtney..the BIGGEST LOSER in the world playing the part of of a love struck woman when in reality she is simply dare i say a nothing..something so low that even the underbellies of snakes are on higher ground…a paid up front, nothing short of a very bad actress..switched channels..Reality TV should be real..not phoney…some of the cast offs deserve another chance..they could find love because the ratings machine bought it from you know who..can’t say her name…the Biggest Loser in the world.
