We get it, Courtney Robertson — you're sorry!
Ben Flajnik's frontrunner offered a serious mea culpa on Monday's Women Tell All episode of The Bachelor, breaking down in tears apologizing for her nasty behavior toward fellow contestants including Blakeley Shea — whom she called a stripper — and Nicki Sterling, whom Robertson gave the nickname "Fatty" behind her back.
"[The Bachelor] brought out the worst in me. It wasn't ever my intention to hurt anyone — I was just trying to keep my head above water," she said after Flajnik's jilted bachelorettes raked her over the coals during the Chris Harrison-hosted special. "No one gives you a manual about how to be on The Bachelor, and I handled it poorly."
Also apologizing to Flajnik for her seen-on-TV antics, Robertson — who tried on wedding dresses February 29 in L.A. — begged her costars to understand that the woman seen on The Bachelor wasn't really her. "I came here for the same hopes and dreams you did — for Ben — and if I hurt your feelings, I'm really sorry," she said. "I hope you guys can find it in your heart to forgive me. I'm not a mean-spirited person."
