Overview

I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends: Confessions of a Reality Show Villain by Courtney Robertson

She was the villain The Bachelor fans loved to hate. Now Courtney Robertson takes us along on her journey to find love and reveals that "happily ever after" isn't always what it seems . . .

Courtney Robertson joined season 16 of The Bachelor looking for love. She fit the casting call: She was young, single, a working model, and a natural in front of the cameras. Although she may have been there for all the right reasons, as the season unfolded and sparks began to fly something else was clear: She was not there to make friends.

Courtney quickly became one of the biggest villains in Bachelor franchise history. She unapologetically pursued her man, steamrolled her competition, and broke the rules—including partaking in an illicit skinny-dip that sealed her proposal. Now, Courtney tells her own story—from her first loves to her first moments in the infamous Malibu mansion. She dishes on life before, during, and after The Bachelor, including the tabloid frenzy that continued after the cameras stopped rolling. Complete with tips, tricks, and advice from your favorite Bachelor alumni, I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends is packed with all of the outrageous stories and details Courtney fans and foes alike want to know.

I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends is a really great book. I was totally surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Typically I steer towards books on political figures, but this was a great escape into a totally different genre.

I honestly felt how a lot of America did, that Courtney was just crazy and evil. But after reading this book, its true you cannot judge a book by its cover. Courtney was strong enough to share her story, which I loved! She seems like an amazing person trying to find love. Definitely a great book!

I loved this book! I was actually a fan of Courtney during her season of the Bachelor and this confirmed what I thought to be true. She is funny and did fall in love with Ben. The book doesn't victimize Courtney nor does it make her a hero. It just states the truth about her and what took place on her season. Nice job Courtney!!!

This book is full of juicy details about The Bachelor and Ben's season. It also has many other details about other people Courtney has encountered. I laughed many times throughout the book and it made me love Courtney and understand her a bit more. This book was hard to put down because I was so entertained!

As a notable Bachelor fan, I, like many, did not like the infamous Courtney Robertson who stole Ben Flajnik's heart, but this story really makes me look at this from two view points. Well told and worth a read!

I wasn't sure I would like this book. I wasn't a fan of hers when she was on the bachelor but I was pleasantly surprised. She owned up to her bad behaviour and apologized for her words and actions. At this point she can't take any of it back but she did own up to it. She also had some insightful anectodates. She explained some of the things that didn't make it to TV. She talked about the ins and outs of the show and I found that very interesting. By the end of the book she had just about won me over. She still didn't always filter fairly before she said something so I'm still holding back a little. I do think under the right circumstances she would be someone I would like to get to know better. I definitely recommend this as an interesting read.

This book is a must read for all fans of the Bachelor. Courtney gives a behind the scenes look at the show and real life during it. I could not put it down after I started reading.

I liked this book even though I am not a fan of the show. What's wrong with people who attack and belittle people they see on a reality show? You are all judgemental bullies picking on the pretty girl. This book shows it really hurts. The show is to blame for taking clips and presenting people in a warped way to get viewers. It seems like more people have been hurt and dammaged than have found love on the show. Triscut, I mean Trista,what a looser for attaching another woman you didn't know. Trying to get attention? I wish Courtney the best, good for her for writing about this.

I did not like Courtney in the bachelor but after reading her side i feel different. This was such a fun and interesting read. Anyone who watches the show will love this book!

Courtney Robertson wasn't popular when she was on TV, and she knows it. But in this frank account Courtney sets the record straight. She is honest about her feelings and actions and that truth rings true in the pages of this book.

She has to be one of the most disgusting people I've seen. No conscience whatsoever. And her book is proof of that.

Loved the book, it’s hard to be so open and honest like She was in this book, but glad I got to see this story from a reliable point of view. Write more books! :)

I bought it thinking it would be a light hearted, easy read. But i couldnt put it down! I watch the bachelor and loved the inside scoop!

I was not a fan of Courtney during her season but I always know there are two sides to a story and TV can be edited. This book gives you an inside look of the truth. You won't have the same views on Courtney OR the innocent wine maker, Ben!

I'm not a huge fan of The Bachelor simply because I always thought it was fake! But after reading this book it made me realize that it's all true.  I still wouldn't watch the show but Courtney definitely gives the dirty details about it. I loved this book from beginning to end!
