“Reader Emails,” “Dr. Reality Steve,” and Courtney’s Book

Apparently reading an excerpt from Courtney’s book last week during the live video chat was a real hit. A lot of you have asked for a reading once a week, so I’ll oblige. Tonight, in the first 10 minutes of the show, I want all of you to get in your pajamas, gather around the fireplace, and let old Uncle Reality Steve read you a bedtime story about how a young Courtney Robertson first started to touch herself. It’s quite exhilarating. Courtney’s book came out on Tuesday, and at least 5 of you have already emailed me saying you purchased it, are already done reading, and loved it. I told you. If you’re looking for “Eat, Pray, Love,” it’s not the book for you. But if you’re a die hard fan of this franchise who watches with regularity, you will enjoy reading it. Go purchase it here if you haven’t already. Definitely gonna have to read an excerpt tonight since next Thursday, I’m in CA and it’s actually Olivia’s birthday that day. Probably not appropriate reading around a 10 year old. Call me crazy. So she and Nicholas will be coming on for the last 15 minutes of the show to hang out again. Or maybe just Olivia since she’s the birthday girl. Not to mention Nicholas’ appearance last time left much to be desired with his gum smacking. We’ll see.

I knew once some of you got a hold of Courtney’s book, the first question I was gonna be asked was about what was on page 164. Courtney did kind of a “Blind Item” excerpt where she listed 3 gossip stories from the franchise she’s heard over the years, but never revealed who was the person behind each story. Here was one of the many emails I received this week, all asking the same thing:

Hi Steve,

Love your site. As with many of your viewers, it is the only reason that I am still able to watch this ridiculous show after so many years (plus a generous amount of wine)!

I read Courtney Robertson’s book, and she gives a few “Blind Items” about past Bachelor/ette escapades. I was hoping that you could at least give us a hint of which people she is referencing.

#1 – This Bachelor was so asexual, his extremely hot and bothered Fantasy Suite partner kept filling up his glass with more alcohol every time he tried to hide in the bathroom. The unlucky lady was just trying to loosen up the guy, but it didn’t work.

#2- This Bachelor was so horny he couldn’t wait to get to the Fantasy Suites to get laid. On a group date, he snuck away with a contestant for an off-camera hookup. But producers busted them just seconds after they left— and she was already on her knees giving him a BJ! When the producers tried to break them up, they didn’t stop and had to be pried apart.

#3-This Bachelorette contestant was such a slimeball he hooked up with an ex at his hotel right before Hometowns!

Thanks for your insight and spoilers! Keep up the good work and ignore all of the haters…

I’m pretty sure #1 is Jake and #3 is Jef Holm since I’ve heard similar stories over the years. Never heard that story on #2, so I don’t know about that one.

Another topic I received numerous emails on this week surrounded another social media story regarding Josh. At least 10 different people asked me this, but here’s the first one I got:

Saw this on Twitter. No clue if it is real, but it is his FB picture (cropped to fit, I think). My friend told me Tinder links with FB. Interesting if it is real.


Here’s my response to that: Josh and Andi are still engaged. Nothing has changed since May 9th. So apparently that account is either fake, or doesn’t matter since it hasn’t changed the end result. My guess is that is a fake account. Would not be hard to set up a fake Facebook account using a picture from Josh’s page. There are enough crazy people out there with nothing better to do with their time.

And finally, looks like Radar Online is late to the party, but hey, at least they credited me. Their “sources” are telling them that Chris is the next “Bachelor,” something that shouldn’t be news to any of you. Obviously nothing is official just yet and I doubt we’re not gonna get the announcement until the “Bachelor in Paradise” finale, but yeah, it’s going to be Chris. Sorry Marquel fans. Just wasn’t gonna happen with him.

    Regarding the “Blind Items” from Courtney’s book, I, without a doubt, would say Bachelor #2 would be Bob Gainey. He was that sleezy that I could totally see that being him.

    I read the book and I liked it. I think it took me about 3 hours to read.
    Dianne…totally who I thought of first for Bachelor #2.

    For the woman whose Husband wants permission to have sex with another woman while she is away, the correct answer is “You’ll have to decide that on your own. You’ve already done damage and created doubt to our marriage by asking me.”

    Just wanted to mention that in the extra scenes after the episodes, Brian didn’t say f*ck in public, he said fart in public. That’s why the boys were all giggling like little girls while they answered the question. I have to admit, I was giggling pretty hard too. Re-watch the scene if you haven’t, best extra scene they’ve had in awhile.

    How many pages is Courtney’s book?

    According to Amazon, Courtney’s book is 272 pages. Most of the customer reviews thus far say it’s very entertaining.

    I bought Courtney’s book and am about half way through it. I’m pleasantly surprised by how detailed she is about what casting was like, her experience during the Bachelor, her sex life. She is not vague. 🙂 I almost feel sorry for Jesse Metcalf etc… who are probably pretty mortified.

    I’m sure Courtney’s book is entertaining but it would be hard for me to give my money to someone who seems to clearly be desperate for attention.

    From the ridiculous way she acted on Bach to over sharing in a book, I think this woman has a personality disorder and is nothing more than a pretty face.

    Sharleen’s blog is wonderful. I wasn’t much of a fan of her deer in the headlights persona with Juan Pebbles….but I thoroughly enjoy her witty blog.

    I think I got my 12 bucks worth of entertainment from Courtneys book. I really wanted to know how the whole process works first hand. Steve calls her stories of touching herself exhilarating….I call it TMI. That didn’t need to be in the book. I know there are two sides to every story, but the way Ben acted in their relationship made me like him even less. I didn’t like him as the Bachelor, and she confirmed to me how he really is. Again, I know there are two sides to every story. I’m sure she’s no angel either.

    No offense to Steve at all, but does anyone else think it’s weird how many women write in the reader emails or in the video blog about how good-looking Steve is or how “hot he looks tonight” in the live chat? It seems like it’s more and more women writing in and mentioning that every week, and there’s always 3 or 4 people who mention his looks on the video blog. He’s not ugly, but I’d say he’s completely average (not my type AT ALL). The way women fawn over him sometimes makes me think either there are some desperate women on this site or women just looking for attention from him. Like they want “unattainable reality steve” to like them. He seems really, really uncomfortable whenever he reads a comment like that- at least on the video blog. Maybe he’s flattered when he reads the emails alone but I always find it so awkward when someone comments about his looks or why doesn’t he have a girlfriend, etc. Am I missing something or do you guys see something in him I don’t?

    Oh, come on BFW! Give the girl a break. She was a victim to very bad editing on the producer’s part. I don’t believe for one second she’s “desperate” for attention. She had the opportunity to put it all out there with her book..and she did, and power to her. Nobody else has ever done this in the history of I give her credit where credit is due. So, tell me, BFW, if you were given such a bad rap, wouldn’t you want to do something to prove it’s not all true? Given the opportunity, I know I would.

    Courtney wrote the book for money and attention. I’m sure the opportunity to put her own spin on things was a nice side benefit too. Bad edit or no bad edit, who knows? But remember, it was Ben Flatdicks season. He chose Courtney, otherwise she wouldn’t have had the opportunity to be the villain and make money on a book. I wouldn’t pity her too much. In TV Land the only bad publicity is no publicity. The media and fan “hate” only fueled her notriety. Otherwise, no attention, no book, no money. Most of the lunatics that appear on this show have early exits and are never heard from again. Courtney is fully captializing on her 15 minutes.

    I just finished the book and also feel like I got my money’s worth. It was entertaining and a very quick read. I was never a fan of Ben, but now know for a fact that he’s just a d***. I was never a fan of Courtney either, but really felt for her while reading the book. It’s so easy for all of us to sit behind our technology and say terrible things. When you read firsthand how it affects someone, it kind of makes you feel bad about being one of many judging someone I don’t know so harshly.

    anybody that has the book wanna mail it to me and let me read it and I’ll mail it back? I don’t wanna buy it. I’m cheap.

  16. Dianne

    June 27, 2014 at 8:42 AM

    oh, I dunno rob22..I say that even if Ben hadn’t chosen Courtney, she still would have been give the opportunity to put it all in writing. She was pegged the villain from day one.

    I don’t think Chris is the winner this season, but don’t dismiss that “idiot” JBF quite so quickly. You have to stop relying only of your “sources. Why was Chris S. handing out roses in Seattle weeks before the finale of Des’s season? Because there are now foilers! JBF had Chris as Des’s pick for most of the season! You were mocking the long list of clues/hints on that website during her season. You were wrong. They were right! Perhaps you should tone down your arrogance after that failure.

    strick…I only have the Kindle edition or else I’d mail it to you.

    June 27, 2014 at 10:48 AM

    Thanks karyn. I thought about asking Steve, but didn’t want to get my feelings hurt when he got mean with me and said no. I just can’t see buying it. My Kindle is broken. Any other takers wanna mail me the book?

  20. rob22

    June 27, 2014 at 11:52 AM

    Dianne, oh maybe, but her profile was raised significantly (and not in a positive way) when that idiot Ben Flatdick picked her. Remember the outrage and seeminingly weeks of tabloid and blog publicity that followed? Even people who never watched the show knew who Courtney was. I’m not sure someone like Tiarra would write a book and generate any interest. Maybe, but probably not.

    It’s been bugging me all season, but I just realized who Nick resembles…IMO. I think he strongly resembles Peter MacNichol from Ally McBeal!

    Well that didn’t take long. Rumor has it, that Andi and Josh will be competing against each other on next seasons Dancing with the Stars. Don’t they always plug a Bachette contestant each season.

    If so, then RS assumption that they are both hungry to stay in the media world would be correct.

    @karynr I see the resemblance! I loved that show.

    Ive read a rumor its The view is considering Andi after the two girls left. Its from a gossip sight though.

    Does anyone follow the other remaining guys from this season? I see their posts on IG popular page and it seems there’s a rivalry/sides of sorts going on? Like my bros and genuine people I love these guys but exclude certain people obviously in the picture. Well I see its mostly Nick, JJ and Brian who does it. Just found it weird

    To the reader who wrote that Andi’s mouth should have a Twitter account— it’s been actively yapping since the end of JuPa’s season.

    Don’t intent to actually purchase Courtney’s book but if my local library can get it, I will read it that way. She deftly is over sharing her life…sad that she needs to basically trash herself and everyone in her life.

    Since Ben is butt ugly, he should have been very grateful that someone like her wanted to be with him! Always thought he was a twit and nothing he says or does now changes my opinion.

    Notice how he so wants to distance himself from Courtney and trashes her…hey stupid, you picked her so live with your huge mistake and shut up! I hope they both slither under those rocks they emerged from all those months ago.
