Courtney Robertson Tells All About "The Bachelor"
Courtney Robertson may be the least popular contestant ever to be on "The Bachelor." So what did she do? Write a tell-all book, of course! In "I Didn't Come Here to Make Friends" Robertson defends her relationship with bachelor Ben Flajnik and gives plenty of behind the scenes stories. Oh, she also talks about her romps with big name celebs. Here are the five juiciest tidbits according to "People" magazine:
• Ben is a Belieber: Robertson said she was having doubts about Ben, and it didn't help he "liked Justin Bieber's music more than a twenty-nine-year-old man should." Ouch.
• She has had a laundry list of celeb dates: Jesse Metcalfe, Reese Witherspoon's future husband Jim Toth, Gerard Butler, and Adrian Grenier. If you want some seriously x-rated details about the "Entourage" actor, you can go grab the book.
• "The Bachelor" facts: The show employs a resident psychologist and a doctor who does STD tests. The contestants that made it to the final round all had fake names to keep the finale results under wraps. Oh, and a "10-2" means a contestant "needs to go number two." Ick.
• Robertson wanted Ben to get it on with the other ladies: "While we were skinny-dipping, I told him I was crazy about him, but that if we were indeed going to get engaged, he should sow his oats," writes Flajnik's former fiancée. "I told him to take advantage of being a single man because once we were officially together, I'd be the last woman he'd ever make love to."
• She could have had a chance at the mirror ball trophy: Robertson was invited to be a contestant on "Dancing With the Stars," but Ben threatened to leave if she took it. "I had a secret meeting with the producers of 'Dancing with the Stars,'" writes Robertson, "and they wanted me as an alternate, just in case anyone got hurt … 'They offered it to you?' [Ben] asked incredulously. I noticed a tinge of jealousy … 'If you do it,' he added coldly, 'you won't have a fiancé.'"

"True Blood: The Musical"?
"True Blood's" final season premieres on June 22nd, but before fans get too upset, know their might be a musical on the way. "The Hollywood Reporter" spoke to composer Nathan Barr about the prospect of a musical version of the vamps. "This was something that I pitched to HBO and (show creator) Alan Ball," he said. Considering he's done the score for all seven seasons of "True Blood," there'd be no one better to take on this project. Barr said the musical would still focus on Sookie Stackhouse, played by Anna Paquin. "I think we're really going to try to return to the roots of the show," Barr commented. As for where the show will end up, Barr is calling Broadway just yet. "There's no guarantees," the composer said. "But I think the direction we're heading in is really exciting."
