I Didn’t Come Here to Make Friends, is a real, juicy, tell all of Courtney Robertson’s life before, during, and after her time on the Bachelor. She spares no one in her rampage. She names names and specific incidents of her time in “the Bachelor bubble” as they call it. I do remember watching Ben’s season that she was on, and thinking she said some really mean things. She explains that she was trying to be funny and that it was her way of dealing with the tough situation.
She talks about how hard it was for her as well as her family to have her name dragged through the media. People openly criticized her and her actions. And she tried to own up to them but it was too little, too late.
She detailed the time after the show was done filming and how her and Ben tried to make their relationship work. Courtney talks about how it was hard for her family and friends to see why she had fallen for Ben and that they had their doubts. She also felt judged by Ben’s family and mentioned the condescending things they said to her about not going to college.
This is the first real tell all from Bachelor Nation alumni and I thought it was really interesting and honest. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who watches the Bachelor / the Bachelorette!
