Courtney won the approval of Ben’s family on The Bachelor season finale, but her catty behavior may resurface and drive the family apart.
Before Ben Flajnik proposed to Courtney Robertson in the season finale of The Bachelor, his sister, Julia, gave him a stern warning: A woman who fails to get along with the other bachelorettes should be a big “red flag.” Given Courtney’s history of catty and malicious behavior with the other ladies throughout the season, fans wondered whether Courtney would even get along with Ben’s mother and sister.
While Julia admitted that her first impression of Courtney was shocking, she insisted that she went into the day with a “clear clean slate” and discovered results she hadn’t expected at all. “I’m blown away. She’s a really amazing girl,” Julia gushed. “I actually learned a huge lesson today that you can’t judge a book by its cover. I found her to be very, very sweet. I really felt like I got to know her today and I do think she would fit really, really well into the family.”
Courtney must have turned on the charm! “I found her to be a very kind person,” echoed Ben’s mother, Barbara. “She said she really loved him and I think that he looks like he has really fallen in love with her. He just seems happy with her, and who wouldn’t want happiness for their children?”
Soon after Ben and Courtney’s engagement went public, Julia took to her twitter account to congratulate the happy-ish couple. “Soo happy to have an amazing future sister in law, love you two together!” she tweeted.
What do you think HollywoodLifers — should Ben’s family be weary of Courtney?
