We tend to be very careful when it comes to the idea of a “tell-all book,” mostly because the name really does reflect just what it is. These are no-holds-barred accounts of events that happened in a celebrity’s life that often gets people in trouble, and more often than not generate enough publicity for someone to survive on in the headlines for months at a time. We’re still not sure if Ben Flajnik’s ex-fiancee is planning to that just yet, but we do know that she is diving into the publishing world with a story that will not only discuss “The Bachelor,” but some of the other relationships, highs, and lows that she has had in her life (could her “date” with Arie Luyendyk jr. also end up in the pages of her book? We’ll have to wait and see.)
Speaking to Celebuzz in an interview on this very subject, here is what Courtney ultimately had to say:
“Mainly right now I’m writing a book about my experience. So I’m meeting with publishers to get that off the ground, so that’s been really good for me … I think it would be more about clearing the air. Through everything that happened they tried to dig up my past. Like I said, I had no voice. So [it would be] just more a out my life experience and moving to L.A. at 19 and the course of my relationships and dating and what led me to go on the show.”
Obviously, the hope would be that she would have nothing but nice things to say about Ben if this book ever was to get published … but who is to say that this would actually happen. If there is something that Courtney needs to get off her chest about this or anything else that happened in regards to “The Bachelor”, this is a good way to make it happen for her; plus, she obviously feels a sense of purpose courtesy of the fact that “The Bachelor” did not entirely paint her in the best light possible (and that is being kind).
Would you read a book about Courtney’s life, or do you stay away from what most former “Bachelor” contestants do after the show? Be sure to share some of your thoughts, and you can read some more scoop on Sean Lowe’s upcoming season here.
