Podcast #68 – Interview with Courtney Robertson

The person I was asked most about all season of when am I gonna have her on the podcast again it today’s guest, Courtney Robertson. Obviously Arie will never come on this podcast, but Courtney might have been the next best thing. Why? Well once you listen today, you’ll realize (like I did when interviewing her) how much Arie told her from the second he got back from filming. I mean, he told her EVERYTHING, and we discuss it all today. Not to mention we also find out a nice little nugget regarding a reconciliation with Ben Flajnik that she hadn’t spoken about publicly yet. All in all, I’d say this is one of the more meatier podcasts in a while. There’s a lot to take in and while Courtney is a friend of Arie and defends him, she certainly doesn’t let him off the hook for everything either. I think anybody who watched this season and all that went along with it will no doubt be excited to hear about some of the behind-the-scenes things Arie was saying and doing, essentially confiding in Courtney from the second he got home from filming. To say I was a bit surprised is an understatement. As always, if you want to reply to the interview please include Courtney’s Twitter handle (@bugrobertson) in your replies. I have no doubt you’re gonna enjoy this one.

    Courtney owed Sidney nothing. She was friends with Arie first. Arie should have been the one tending to his relationship with Sidney. Arie was the one keeping Courtney close and confiding in her.

    I agree. I think Courtney did this podcast to try and help Arie and make him seem more likable. I’ve been waiting social media from day one of this season and I haven’t seen very many positive comments about Arie from the get go. He makes Nick look good.

    I have to agree. If you start spending a lot of time with someone I think it’s a conversation you need to have. You need to tell the other person your expectations for the relationship before you go any further.

    I think the same thing. Courtney is beautiful and there is no way in hell Lauren is going to let that friendship continue especially since Arie and Courtney were intimate. If they do get married and thats a huge if Courtney will not be attending that wedding. She says Arie likes to take care of people but there is a big difference between taking care of someone and constantly having to reassure them.

    Do you know Courtney? That’s a lot of hatred for someone you’ve seen on TV.

    Somy – oh my – your reaction to more than one person disagreeing with you is to invent a conspiracy theory (it must be the same person with different user IDs, I couldn’t possibly be WRONG about something). LOL. Still shaking my head.
