‘The Bachelor’: Ben Flajnik, Courtney Robertson address breakup individually

Mrs. Carter: Ben and Courtney are speaking out; and this time, they are doing so on their own.

Although we did first see an official statement from both Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson at the time that their breakup was officially announced to the world last week, we are now getting the opportunity to know a little bit more concerning just what went wrong, and how the two parties are actually doing now in the wake of their breakup. We’ll begin here with what Courtney had to say in a recent post on her Twitter account, and we really have to give her some credit overall here for being rather positive versus just trying to drag her ex-fiance’s name through the mud:

“Thank you all so much for the kind words and for believing in us! We did too, and tried our best! I really appreciate all the love and support. XO”

Meanwhile, Ben was quick to add some thoughts of his own, and also decided not to pull any punches:

“A big thanks to you all for your support during this time in my life … It has been a crazy journey over the past couple years and I am blessed to have amazing friends/fam.”

In some ways, there is almost a little bit of irony here: despite some of the drama that really unfolded with Ben and Courtney during their season, they are currently in the process of having one of the classiest breakups in the history of the show. As a matter of fact, there really are some lessons that some of the other stars of the show from seasons past (we are looking at you Jake and Vienna) could learn from how they’ve handled this.

Even though Ben and Courtney could not make it work, do you like you they are handling this breakup? If you want to hear more about the first sighting of Courtney since the split became official, you can do so by reading the story that is up over at the link here.
