Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson (of ‘Bachelor’ fame) have called it quits on their engagement. In what can be an emotional and trying time, Bachelor Ben and his made-for-television fiancÃ© actually seem to be handling it pretty well.
A mere seven months after the reality television show couple were engaged on the season finale, Flajnik and Robertson are done. Both took to Twitter to thank fans for support, without firing jabs at each other. Talk about being cordial.
“A big thanks to you all for your support during this time in my life,” tweeted Ben Flajnik. Ben was seen on both ‘The Bachelor’ and ‘The Bachelorette.’ “It has been a crazy journey over the past couple years and I am blessed to have amazing friends/fam.”
Of course, not to be out done by his ex-fiance, Courtney Robertson also tweeted about the split. “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”
Holy cow! A public break-up of reality television stars that didn’t end up becoming a war of words and finger-pointing. At least they didn’t actually tie the knot, only to have a nasty divorce play out in the media. Now both Ben and Courtney can move forward in life and perhaps find real love… not the kind that you have to compete for on a reality television show.
