The Bachelor star Ben Flajnik and his fiance Courtney Robertson appeared at Svedka’s Second Annual Night Of A Billion Reality Stars bash on Thursday. Also in attendance were Ali Fedotowsky, Jon Gosselin, Kyle Richards, Gretchen Rossi and Teresa Giudice — but Ben and Courtney were center stage.
The model and the winemaker say that they are trying their best to live normal lives. Ben revealed, “It’s getting close. Now that the show’s over and the star’s fading…it’s wonderful for us.”
Courtney said, “We’re getting there.”
Do they really want their stars to fade? I think not!
When speaking of their recent vacation, Courtney said, “Oh my goodness. I’m still so relaxed. It was really great.” Ben added, “I’m back to work, all stressed out.”
Ben went on to talk about getting to know Courtney, saying, “The thing that people don’t know is that when the show was airing we spent a lot of time together, and we were off almost every weekend. We got to know each other really well.”
Courtney said, “He’s met some of my friends in San Francisco and I’ve been with his.”
With regard to any plans for a wedding, Courtney said, “No date set. We’re engaged, dating, taking it slow. We love each other very much. It took the pressure off.”
Ben added, “We kind of looked back at some of the other Bachelor relationships that didn’t work out and the reason for that is you have so much pressure to move in together and set a date and all this kind of stuff…Let’s figure out who we are together before we do any of that and take the pressure off.”
