    1. Courtney Robinson Robertson was the girl we loved to hate. I'm a big fan of the Bachelor/ette franchise as a general rule, but Courtney really brought the kind of pain to the show that hooked us viewers in. I started off this review saying she was demonized, but I think everybody's aware, especially herself, that she was fully aware of her own behaviors and how they affected people.Anyway, this is not a review on Courtney's personality flaws, but the book she wrote highlighting her life thus far [...]


    2. 6 stars. An absolute must-read for fans of Bachelor Nation. This book is funny and sad, and really gives a lot of behind-the-scenes info. I couldn't put it down, and it made me a genuine fan of Maneater Courtney. I hope she finds love. By the way, I'm not sorry or ashamed about how much I loved this book. Not at all.


    3. Well, what did I really expect from this book? Courtney comes off as shallow and self-absorbed as what viewers saw on S16 of 'The Bachelor'. First of all someone show this girl what 'poor' really means."Growing up I didn't realize how poor our family was, sometimes I'd have to cancel gymnastics because we couldn't afford the dues" - Oh cry me a river, girl please get your head together. That really rubbed me the wrong way. Aside from a misguided understanding of universal issues, Courtney procee [...]


    4. Leave your brain and good taste at the door. This is the epitome of a frothy, summery beach read -- only with more bite (and quite possibly leaving you in need of a topical cream).If you're a Bachelor/Bachelorette fan, you will want to read this. But don't admit out loud to anyone that you are, in fact, reading it. 2 words: guilty pleasure.


    5. I didn't plan on reading this book. Full disclosure here - while my sisters organize parties and DVR episodes, I'm not invited. Because I keep asking questions like, "So why do we not like her?" That said, I did watch the Final Rose episode with my sister and friend. I also saw snippets of Women Tell All. I had also caught snippets of conversations in real life so I knew that Lindzi was the favorite and Courtney was the mean girl. Regardless of those snippets, my biases going into the book were [...]


    6. As a huge bachelor fan, I could not resist reading this book even though I was sceptical and not a fan of Courtney Robertson. She has changed my view of her. If I can describe her in two words it would be FUNNY and TRUTHFUL! I also loved reading about what happens behind the scenes of the reality programme. At the end of the day, all she wanted was somebody to respect and love her for what she is. Big ups to Courtney.



    7. I'm pretty picky about what I give 5 stars to, but this book is everything I was looking for when I read the description (and what was lacking in Holly Madison's memoir). As someone who has watched The Bachelor for 10+ years and is obsessed with Lifetime's Unreal series, I wanted the details, scandal, and backstories that created this train wreck of a show, and Courtney delivered. Thank you, Courtney, for telling me about tattooed eyeliner, laxative issues on group dates, sex scandals, and pug b [...]


    8. Oh how entertaining this was.This has to be one of the most ridiculous shows in the history of television, but it's such a guilty a pleasure. I remember watching this season and hating on this chick - my mother and I were relentless, along with the rest of the viewers. When I heard she wrote this book, I was so amused if only because she seemed like the type that would reveal everything. And she did! Unlike other recent D-list celebrities that have written their memoirs and pretending they would [...]



    9. I read it in 2 days, a sure way to tell I enjoyed the book. It was an interesting and fun read and I think any fan of the Bachelor/Bachelorette would love it. Yes, even though I read RealitySteve this book revealed a lot more. Having said that, I don't know what is the reason Courtney wrote the book. Get back at Ben? Get 15 more minutes in the spotlight? Needed the cash? If it's the 3rd reason, then more power to her. However, I don't feel she has redeemed herself in this book. To me she comes a [...]


    10. I almost want to give this four stars for how engaging she is, and how I laughed out loud more times than I did during Jim Gaffigan's and Amy Poehler's books, combined. In fact, oh fuck it, four stars. Gooooooodbye credibility.


    11. I read a lot of books and have never written a review on any. I watched Ben and Courtney's season and the ladies on the show for the most part were catty and immature. I have to admit I was not a huge fan of Courtney until toward the end of the show and was really hoping it would work for her and Ben. Courtney is right though you don't go on a show like that to make friends with everyone. It seems that maybe Courtney's humor and personality were misunderstood due in most part to the other ladies [...]


    12. Not gonna lie, I'm fascinated by behind-the-scenes stuff about the Bachelor. The best part of the show for me is trying to identify manipulation and creative editing. This book got into great detail about the structure of the show behind the camera, and I ate it up. It also got into a lot of juicy tidbits about what wasn't shown on the screen, and although I kind of ate that up, too, I took it with a grain of salt. This is one woman's biased version of the story, although I certainly think that [...]


    13. I really liked the book, I didn't realize how much went into making the bachelor and how much time they really didn't spend with each other you cant possibly get to know someone and fall in love with them that fast.I feel like Courtney did get a bad rap when she was on there and Ben is an ass I don't believe he had any feelings for her at all. She shouldn't have stayed with him he mad a fool of her so shame on you Ben.


    14. I remember watching Ben's season of the Bachelor and, like most people, being convinced Courtney was a terrible awful person. Of course we all know editing plays a big role in those perceptions so I was curious to hear her side of the story. This was a very engaging read and very interesting to get the real scoop. The writing style is very conversational and peppered with jokes. If you're a fan of the Bachelor/ette franchise you'll enjoy getting your fix in book form!



    15. Women have served all these centuries as looking glasses possessing the magic and delicious power of reflecting the figure of man at twice its natural size. ~ Virginia Woolf (1882-1941) ~In this exciting, fascinating, and highly entertaining "I Didn't Come Here To Make Friends: Confessions of A Reality Show Villain" Courtney Robertson (CR) dishes truthfully about her experience of falling in love with bachelor Ben Flajnik (BF) on the 16th season of the Bachelor reality TV series, also the before [...]


    16. I read this book not expecting to like it nearly as much as I did, and dare I say even felt a bit inspired by Courtney's journey. I mean if she can overcome being the most hated contestant in Bachelor history well.Regardless if Courtney wrote this book to gain sympathy, I did sympathize with her. We've all made mistakes and there are a lot of women out there who are/have been nasty b*tches to other women (the other contestants on her season included). I do not believe she deserved to be treated [...]


    17. It's no secret I am a huge Bachelor/Bachelorette fan. I watched Ben's season and I HATED Courtney but I had weird mixing feelings at After the Final Rose. I knew something was off and I felt genuinely bad for her. While I do feel that you can't be painted as the villian without giving them some material, I do think Courtney got a bad rap. I do get the sense that her feelings were genuine toward Ben and I do feel badly about how it happened. I live for these tell-alls but I have a feeling I will [...]


    18. Going into this, I didn't expect a well written auto-biography. As predicted Courtney's journal-style tell all, was exactly what I expected. She was the so called "bad girl" chosen by Ben in The Bachelor. She starts with her childhood and no one is safe. She throws everyone under the bus, including herself. This is a total train wreck, but a must read for all of us "guilty pleasure" Bachelor fans. The inside scoop on the show is worth picking up the book. I actually found my myself Youtubing her [...]


    19. This was a super quick read. I had to really think back to who the people were in her season on The Bachelor, but once I remembered them, it was interesting to read about the dynamics in the house from Courtney's point of view. I was not a fan of Ben on this season, and what Courtney wrote just confirmed what I thought.


    20. Some bratty moments, but definitely juicy and tons of awesome behind-the-scenes juice on how things really work in Bachelor world.A fun listen.


    21. Definitely a guilty pleasure but I wanted my mind to be changed about how I perceived Courtney. Unfortunately, she is the same girl from the show. This book was nothing but her being a bully again.


    22. It was better than I thought it would be. Occasionally obnoxious, but a decent behind the scenes look at a reality dating show, which is the only reason I read it.


    23. Review also found at kristineandterri/2Ok, I admit it. You found me out. The Batchelor franchise is my guilty pleasure, any of them be it Bachelor, Bachelorette or Bachelor in Paradise. I know, I know. How can a professional business woman be drawn in to such nonsense. I say easy, if you want the easiest way to see a sociological experiment of people's behavior, this has got to be it. While I am not one to want to extend any of the participants of this shows 15 seconds of fame, I couldn't help b [...]


    24. I'm giving this 4 stars for sheer entertainment value. It's trashy as all get out, but heck if it wasn't crack. I read it in 1 day.We get some background about Courtney's childhood, start of her modeling career, celeb boyfriends, and then most of the book focuses on recapping the season of The Bachelor that she was on from her behind the scenes POV, then ends with detailing how she and Ben handled their relationship after the show.I do watch The Bachelor and The Bachelorette (And Bachelor in Par [...]


    25. Don't worry, this definitely didn't change my opinion about them at all; Courtney's still a bitch and Ben's still an asshole.I really only wanted to read this for two reasons: first, to see behind the scenes what happens at the Bachelor/Bachelorette, and second, to see what she had to say about Arie. I definitely wasn't disappointed on those accounts! I learned so much about the casting process and what really goes on during the time between the dates. Any Bachelor Nation fan should read this fo [...]


    26. I was pleasantly surprised by this read. I liked how the book traces Courtney's entire "Bachelor" journey from the interview to the end of her relationship with Ben. Courtney looked back on her life with a critical and analytical lens, making this memoir rather insightful. In regards to the writing, Courtney and Deb included lists along the way to break up the narrative and make the reader laugh. The tone was humorous and enjoyable - like watching the show.Also, I will note, the celebrity name d [...]


    27. I am an avid Bachelor/Bachelorette watcher so this was an especially entertaining book for me. If you are looking to change your opinion about Courtney, trust me, this won't do it. She is still as bitchy as ever - but for someone like me - it almost comes off as endearing. I would hang with her and totally make fun of people together because let's be honest, I can be really shallow like that.Favorite parts: Dishing on what went on behind the scenes with the other girls during the filming and gai [...]
