Even Ben Flajnik had to see the light sooner or later.

The Bachelor star admits, supposedly, in a new interview what everyone said about Courtney Robertson from the moment she debuted on the ABC show.

She lies. And kind of sucks.

Courtney Robertson is speaking out about her split from Ben Flajnik, blaming the long-distance factor for the end of The Bachelor stars' relationship.

Of course, if you're engaged, don't you typically move in with your fiance?

"Our relationship has been tested pretty much the entire time we’ve been together,” she confides. “When I stayed [with Ben] for long periods of time, it helped."

"I think if we’d lived together, we wouldn’t have broken up.”

Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson haven't been heard from for awhile, which is probably a good thing, considering the negative press they got earlier this year.

Even before The Bachelor star proposed to the brunette model during the show's March finale, they were inundated with an avalanche of bad publicity.

Now that it's been five months, it appears the embattled couple is going as strong as ever, and may be finally thinking about their nuptials to boot.

Via Twitter on Friday, Courtney Robertson and Ben Flajnik shared pics of their visit to Baker Beach in San Francisco, Calif., where the couple resides.

Both of them suggested that it'd make a perfect wedding venue.

"Should we get married here? ;) a picture of Courtney and I observing a wedding," Ben posted with a pic of himself, Courtney and his dog Scotch.

Added his model fiancee: "I love this candid photo of my boys playing at Baker Beach this morning! I am in love with this place, first time here."

"I think this would be a fun place for a wedding @BenFlajnik ;)"

Almost as soon as Robertson accepted Flajnik's proposal, the couple said there was no date set and they were taking it slow for the foreseeable future.

That seems to have been a good plan for them, if they're still happy and talking about weddings. What do you think, Bachelor fans? Will it last?

Los Angeles or San Francisco.

That's the debate between The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson, who like to say they're "engaged-dating," regarding where they'll live in the future.

"It goes back and forth, back and forth," he said Saturday in Vegas, where the duo, who got engaged on the March season finale, hosted a party at PURE.

Flajnik lives in San Francisco and Napa but "loves" the Santa Monica area of Los Angeles. Courtney Robertson lives in Santa Monica and "loves" San Francisco.

Something's gotta give eventually, right?

"We most definitely talk about it," the reality star tells People. "We're trying to figure it out, see how it's going to work and when it's going to happen."

"One thing we do really well is communicate. If something's bothering me or bothering her, we try to squash the bug really quick and move on."

Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson of The Bachelor made sure everyone remembers they are still together as they hosted a party at Las Vegas' PURE nightclub.

Because nothing says "normal couple" like paid appearances in Sin City.

The couple got up close and personal poolside on Saturday as they smooched at the Wet Republic Ultra Pool party, then walked the red carpet that night ...

The pair, who have been plagued with rumors of a split since the March season finale of the reality show, seemed to revel in being the guests of honor for the night.

People were quick to write them off after the way she conducted herself all winter, but by making it a few months already, they've already exceeded expectations.

What do you think: Will Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson last?

Controversial lovebirds Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson of The Bachelor fame say they are enjoying what they've come to call "engaged dating."

The way this season went, that's as good as one could hope for, if not better.

"We're still getting to know each other and taking it slow," Flajnik told People at a fashion show in New York. "[Things] are working out really well."

Courtney Robertson agrees, but says she still has a lot to learn about Ben.

"It's nice to see him in social settings and with his family," says the model. "He is always the life of the party. He's got this great personality."

While the duo is looking forward to a summer filled with travel plans and wedding invitations, they won't be rushing down the aisle anytime soon.

"We're not even there yet," Ben Flajnik said. Added his fiance, perhaps the most reviled Bachelor contestant ever, "[We're] just enjoying each other."

Things are going swimmingly, though, save for minor hiccups. She's finding out what they don't have in common: He "hates bananas," she says.

But she has won him over with her favorite drink: "She's got me drinking those things," Ben says of the fermented tea-based beverage kombucha.

If that's their biggest problem now, they could prove a lot of us wrong.

What do you think: Will Ben and Courtney last?

It was date night for The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson last night.

The two stepped out in L.A. at Svedka's 2nd Annual Night of a Billion Reality Stars bash with fellow reality fixtures such as Jon Gosselin, Kyle Richards, Ali Fedotowsky, Teresa Giudice, Gretchen Rossi. Like a C-list Who's Who right there.

Clearly, after everything that's gone down, Ben and Courtney were the center of attention. They said that's starting to fade as they settle into normal life, however, and they really couldn't be happier for their 15 minutes to fade away.

"It's getting close," Flajnik said of returning to normalcy after the past year. "Now that the show's over and the star's fading ... [it's] wonderful for us."

"We're getting there," Courtney Robertson added.

Although the couple have an army of skeptics, they say they've learned "lots" about each other since the end of the Bachelor's filming and its aftermath.

"The thing 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," Ben explained.

"We got to know each other really well."

The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson are now a happy and engaged couple, but that doesn't mean cohabitation is in effect. At least not yet.

Us Weekly (who broke the story of Ben kissing random girls, and who Flajnik calls "shady") recently reported that he and Court were shacking up already.

We thought that was probably too soon. Turns it so did they.

A source tells E! News that Robertson "hasn't moved in, but they are spending more time together. She is gradually moving some stuff into his apartment."

"Still, they are content taking it slow at the moment."

Probably for the best. Love 'em or loathe 'em, the two have been through a lot, and need time to figure out if this is even going to work as a relationship.

"She is now back at her L.A. home and they are planning to see each other again next week," the source adds of L.A.-based model Courtney Robertson.

"They are getting along really well, but she's not willing to give up her L.A. home yet."

"It might be soon, though, but they want to just see how it goes and get used to settling into real life and spending a lot of time together first."

Fair. What do you think: Will this thing last?
