Courtney Robertson, Bachelor Season 16 Winner, Lands Book Deal for Revealing New Memoir
Forget the rose, Courtney Robertson has landed herself a new book deal! The Bachelor Season 16 winner is gearing up to release a revealing new memoir, Us Weekly can exclusively confirm. The title will be I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain.
"Going on The Bachelor was the most amazing opportunity I've ever had but I did not have a fairy tale ending!" the 30-year-old told Us. "The girls hated me, my modeling career was destroyed and Ben and I had a tumultuous 11-month relationship that ultimately imploded. There are two sides to every story."
She added: "I wanted a chance to talk about what went down from my perspective, because I think there are a lot of misconceptions out there about me."
The reality star had quite the bumpy ride while appearing on the ABC series in 2011. During the season (filled with plenty of cat fights!) Robertson was filmed calling some of the other female contestants "fatty" and "horsey."
Either way, Robertson still received the last rose in the finale and became engaged to now-ex Ben Flajnik. The two decided to go their separate ways in October 2012.
"Writing the book has been very cathartic -- I've definitely learned a lot about myself and love!" she said. "I think fans of the show are going to love it, it's totally juicy and hilarious."
I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain will be released by HarperCollins Publishers.
