From catty behavior to rumors of infidelity, it’s been a rocky road for Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson so far. In a last ditch attempt to solve their relationship problems, the couple headed south of the border for a little sunshine therapy.
When Bachelor Ben Flajnik got down on one knee and proposed to model Courtney Robertson, he knew his life would change forever. But, he had no idea of the emotional ups and downs the two would face months after that romantic day in Switzerland. Between rumors of Ben’s infidelity and Courtney’s gold-digging behavior, there’s been more drama for the newly engaged couple in real life than there was all season on The Bachelor!
In a last ditch attempt to salvage their relationship, Life & Style reports that Ben and Courtney took a tropical vacation to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on March 22, but even in paradise, the pair couldn’t escape their problems. “When they kissed, it seemed forced,” said an eyewitness, who spotted the duo walking through town. “For an engaged couple, they weren’t so lovey-dovey.”
Ben and Courtney supposedly planned the exotic vacation to re-evaluate their relationship and decide once and for all if they really do have a future together. “This was a make-or-break vacation for them,” an insider reveals. “They wanted to spend time together and see whether this whole thing can work.”
Despite their romantic setting, onlookers at the Hacienda San Angel resort claimed the couple seemed “distracted” and “not overly affectionate” during their stay. If couples massages and intimate dinners (including a serenade by a mariachi band!) weren’t enough to re-ignite the spark in Courtney and Ben’s relationship, then it looks like nothing will.
Do you think Courtney and Ben’s relationship will last much longer, HollywoodLifers? What could they do to rev-up the romance?
