Although everyone assumes The Bachelor's winner, and villain, Courtney Robertson, doesn't speak to any of the girls she bashed on the hit show, she tells us otherwise. Courtney, who's still engaged to Ben Flajnik — if you're wondering — told OK! that she's actually very close with some of the former bachelorettes.
"I do [talk to the other girls]!" Courtney told OK! at Mark Zunino's Bridal fashion show at Kleinfeld in NYC last night. "I got some friends. We all talk. It’s not as bad as they made it seem."
Courtney has always said she and Casey S. got along swimmingly on the show, adding that her relationship with Rachel Truehart is still going strong. Actually, she's planning on meeting up with Rachel while she's in the Big Apple with Ben!
"I talk to Rachel and Jacqueline all the time," Courtney explained. "A few other girls have reached out, I’ve talked to Shawn."
"I might meet up with Rachel," she added, "but Jacqueline is actually in L.A. We just missed each other!"
As for how she gets along with The Bachelorette stars Ali Fedotwosky and Ashley Hebert, Courtney says she enjoys spending time with them, since they've gone through what she and Ben are experiencing now.
"I met Ashley recently, I like her!" Courtney told OK! exclusively. "And Ali and I got along like a house on fire. She’s the nicest person and she’s so sweet."
"They’ve been through it, so I think they kind of know how the editing works and so there’s no judgment," she added. "It’s great."
As for her life with Ben, that's great as well!
"It’s like 'Ahhh,' like a sigh of relief," Courtney admitted. "Cause the show is over and the worst is behind us."
