Courtney Robertson has some gracious parting words for her fans now that her engagement with Ben Flajnik is official kaput. "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."
Aw, that's sweet! But what world is she living in? It's like she's in a parallel universe where this whole relationship was a real thing! I almost feel like I'm watching a Twilight Zone episode. (Google it.) What fans? What love and support? And who was left still believing in the Courtney and Ben dream engagement, anyway?
Thank you all for believing in "us" -- who is this "us" of which you speak, Courtney? Maybe I just hang with a really cynical crew, but I was under the impression that there wasn't a single soul left who still thought this wedding was really going to happen. Heck, there are "fans" who thought the whole engagement itself was a total sham from the very beginning.
But I do believe Courtney when she says she and Ben really tried their best. I think they really did try to stay in the spotlight for a little bit longer -- even if it meant pretending to be in a relationship with each other. That must have been difficult! Especially if you're juggling hookups with other women, BEN.
But hey, who am I to rain on Courtney's exit parade? She's going to keep pretending up to the final, bitter end. Yup, you sure did try hard, Courtney. No one could have tried harder than you! We'll miss you and your pretend/so-real engagement to Ben.
When did you stop believing in Courtney and Ben -- or did you ever?
