Cortney and Antonio: Smelly Cat(fish)

Recommended Posts

Hmmm... I am not sure what Cortney thinks might be charming behavior in a lady.... has she seen the movie How to lose a guy in 10 days ....more like 2 days .... We only see like 2 minutes of their interactions, and this is all probably scripted, but all that we see is Cortney continually attacking Antonio, at the very best, she is coldly nagging him with the possessiveness of a wife of 15 years and not as if they had just met and are on their first romantic dinner. The way she asked him if he does porn, then whipped out her phone to prove him a "liar" with that smug smile, and how dare he have these photos on the internet for the whole world to see, as if they hadnt just met each other lol. It looks like the show is trying to paint Antonio into an antagonist, when really he is just a regular single guy from Spain, where his flirtatious behavior may be the norm. He even told her, if she is not happy, she is free to leave. Yet she doesnt. Even when she was angry because he looked at a waitress who was bending over right near them, I had originally thought that when Cortney said "You can pick up the check from your boo" that she was going to stalk out the restaurant and call it a trip, but no, she had simply stalked off to go to the restroom. I really hope that all of this was just acting. I have a feelig that Antonio is not acting though.

Oh, I think the producers are Team Antonio. They see Corny the way most of us do: Entitled, condescending, clueless.

Gotta say I think Corny's missing a great opportunity here; have a wild fling with a man too attractive/charming for her, then go back to regular life.

I don't have all the Corny hate. She talked to this dude who couldn't be bothered with phone calls or video for a few months yet he said all the right things to her, including talk of marriage and babies and all that. She gets there and he's not at the airport because of work, she's tired but has to do a five hour stint at his work, he thought they would sleep together night one, groped her while video chatting with her parents, and had a little trouble focusing on her with the ass of the waitress in his face, among other things.  

We knew before she left the States that she wasn't the brightest flare in the emergency kit in spite of the mother of that Farkle Family stating that she's a smart girl.   

He seems to be just your average European player. His moves are cultural, he doesn't have much to apologize for and he seems completely baffled by her frustration with him.

I don't think he's as hot as he thinks he is. His looks and his nasal voice make me wince. Banderas, he ain't.  

They're coming from two different places. She thought she was going to meet her fiancé and he thought he was meeting a fast American.  He doesn't act like a fiancé and she's not acting like a fast American.  

Corn's "porn" revelation went over about as well as any of her other concerns. Two different places. I don't much like either of them, but I kind of understand her disappointment.  It looks like a recipe for disaster.

I mean...I guess. I would expect better behavior from my fiance that never made an effort to videochat with me or even find time for a telephone call.

Corny Ranch Dip has fabricated a "relationship" where for all intents and purposes exists only in her Disney princess dreams.  Neither one is wrong to want what they want, but it clearly looks to those of us watching that neither one is going to give what the other wants to the other.  They could possibly make nice friends, but the timing and chemistry are way off for any sort of relationship.

Corny, forget about Prince Antonio and enjoy all the beauty Spain has to offer as a tourist.  Get your own room, and treat yourself to a feast of tapas and good sangria and a nice coffees afterwards.  Then, after a good sleep, take some guided tours and invite Antonio if he wants to come along. If he doesn't, you have a chance to make some new friends.

Hes not her fiance. In fact, he was just a random guy who she was FB messaging with for a couple months. Maybe a 14 or 15 year old would take FB messages seriously at face value, but she is 26. Besides, his words were all just flirtatious nonsense.

I know that. Too bad Cortney doesn't.  I really am curios what she wants from a man who barely gave her the time of day online. And now here she is halfway round the world going thru his phone and demanding he pledge his undying love in front of his family.

When I was 14, the cutest guy in school helped me carry one of those big nets full of basketballs to the court outside. About a week later, he said, "hey" to me in the hallway. I ran home and dreamed about him asking me to the school dance. He didn't. Most women I know have learned a lesson or two along the way in life. Apparently not Courtney. Some random dude sweet-talks to her online and she's flying halfway around the world to visit him? And, she's been catfished before? I can't dig up any sympathy for her.

She acted like she owned him just because he sent her flirty texts for 2 months.  The previews for next epi imply they had sex.  Now she's acting even more possessive.  If any man sees that behavior before sex, he needs to leave that woman alone, unless he really wants a girlfriend and exclusivity.  Otherwise, expect the fury or at least the disappointment of a woman scorned.  Girls, if a boyfriend is what you want, don't pay the "admission fee" if you know you can't trust him to treat you right.  There are plenty of people who can fill the need of a casual fling.

Isn't Cortney supposed to be 26?  She talks like a 12 year old.  I can't stand her "up speak". All of her statements sound like questions, and uses "like" in every sentence. Grow up Cortney!

Have you ever watched the Duggar family?  Now there's a bunch of imperious, arrogant, undereducated uptalkers, each with the collective IQ of a doorknob and the emotional maturity stunted at 12.

She should get a hotel or a hostel or something. I felt so uncomfortable with her staying in his apartment while he leaves to get air and was also gone the whole night. I get where Antonio is coming from. I could not spend a whole 24-7 with my boyfriend. I would lose my mind. But we also have a house. Antonio seems too polite to tell her to get the hell out.

I noticed that, even though she wanted champagne, he actually ordered Cava, which is the Spanish equivalent but is much, much cheaper than actual French champagne.

I get the impression Corny is not that discerning about alcoholic beverages and couldn't tell Dom Perignon from Two Buck Chuck! She probably thought Cava was Spanish for champagne!

 The best part of my evening was hearing Antonio tell Courtney to stop drinking wine. I am still lauging at that. 

And yes he’s an ass. But she basically invited herself to meet him, barged into his home, told him she was staying there, and told him that she was his girlfriend — so she just as obnoxious.

 I bet $1 million Coourtney spent the whole day alone going through his entire apartment with a fine tooth comb and snooping on him - photos, his diary, notes, bills, anything she could find, etc.

After the air conditioner broke, rather than whingeing about it, a classy move on her part would be explain that Florida is miserable without A/C and she's not used to doing without it and to get herself a hotel room with 2 beds and invite him to stay there to cool off as a way to thank him for his hospitality .  Then, proceed to shower and get herself a good night's sleep, since they each could have the comfort of having their own beds, rather than two people sweltering in a cracker box.

Sweaty, drunk, moody, and mean are never good looks, even to show one.  The way she's ingratiated herself upon him and clung to him like a succubus would have made a saint swear.  She just doesn't get it.  He can't even have any peace in his own space.

Because she's delusional.  

She honestly thought this guy 'loved' her when she was texting/sexting with him long distance.  Didn't think anything of the fact that he never seemed to be able to call her or skype with her.  And despite reservations from her friends and family, she jumps on a plane, and shows up in Spain expecting to be swept off her feet.

She's just not rational.  Granted I'm in my 40's, but do 'young folks' these days really think it works this way?  That she would have a great story to tell her grandchildren..."I met pawpaw online, and then I threw caution to the wind and flew to see him and it was LOVE LOVE LOVE at first sight!  After a few heady weeks of ROMANCE in Spain he proposed!  And we lived happily ever after...". Yeah.  No.

I spent my Junior year in college in Malaga.  it was the best year of my life!  I am enjoying seeing the sights, and hearing the language, even a little bit, and the accents the Spaniards have when they speak English.

I hope Corny wasn't locked in that apartment waiting all day for him.  What a shame to miss out on such a beautiful city.  I bet he thought she'd leave while he was gone, and she thought if she left he'd come back and lock her out.  Ah, the beginnings of a great relationship!  She tries to act all coy, playing the hurt girlfriend, buzzed on white wine.

I admit I hooked up with a guy or two (or seven) and felt a little blown off when they didn't proclaim their love for me, but hey, I was 20 and didn't know better.  Grew out of that rather quickly.

I am team Antonio.  He is doing what he knows and will not change for her.  He shouldn't have to.  This is so silly.

Not exactly an unimpeachable source but I read that Corney and a buddy revealed on an Insta Live Chat that she WAS a Disney Princess and played Princess Aurora . I knew it. Also, she bragged up her finance degree and the fact she went to work in FL for a Fortune 100 company . I’m gathering she meant Disney and I am LOL at the inference that she makes it sound like she was employed in the capacity of her degree using her wizardry of finances when in reality she played Princess Aurora. Sheesh Corney. No wonder she is shacked up in her micro apartment acting like it’s Cinderella’s Castle, it’s approaching midnight at the ball Corney! Almost time to banish your prince to the short couch.

Maybe she was walking around with a dustpan and broom, WISHING she were Princess Aurora.  I took a quick look at Google Images - lots of Auroras, there - but none of them were Cortney.  I don't think Disney "cast members" are ever allowed to reveal their true identities, nor to link them to the characters they played.

Antonio and courtney have zero chemistry. And neither of them is smart enough to recognize it. Time to call it a day. 

Don't get me wrong, I'm in no way defending him, but I think Antonio realized there was "nothing" (literally/figuratively) after Day 1 with Cortney.  I disagree that he isn't smart enough to realize this.  Sure, when he wanted to get her into bed, he puts on the "charm" but afterwards he takes off using the excuse that he need to go to his mother's house (yeah right). .   Corttttney is the dumbass to spend an entire day sitting in that "hot" apartment, when she could have left to check out some of the sights.   It was obvious by watching his behavior at the "beauty" pagent that he was a guy who had no intent to get into a serious relationship anytime soon.

If Cortney really likes to travel, she might have bought into this fiasco so she could get a free trip to Spain (although I think this is doubtful - she does seem like the lights are on but nobody's home for the most part).  If she was buzzed for all of the filming that would make more sense - she should have taken a side trip to see Jesse and Darcy in Amsterdam.  I'm sure Darcy would like to meet up with her for a couple small glasses of wine where they could comiserate about their "experiences".

My hubby and I were watching together and during one of the Antonio/Courtney segments, he said "Antonio is starting to grow on me." I was like, "me too!" He's an average dude! I personally think he looks better with his glasses on. 

IMO, Antonio hoped TLC would at least give him some "exposure" and cash if he went along with this charade.  After watching "Line in the Sand" episode tonight, I also started to feel some empathy for him.  He needs to tell TLC to leave, take their cameras and Cortney and check into a hotel and give him back his space.  Damn Cortney, even though his English isn't perfect, it's obvious he wasn't into her or wanting a serious relationship and towards the end of the episode I got the impression he was counting the days until it was over.  I'm hoping that storyline will be finally wrap up next week and we won't see those two on a future episode of 90 Day Fiance.  It's painful to watch.

I am so confused about Cortney. 

1.  Why was she wearing her backpack on her chest and not on her back?  It reminded me of when I used to carry my baby in a front-carrier.

2.  Antonio acted surprised when she said that she was staying with him in his apartment and not a hotel.  Isn't this kinda an important thing to discuss BEFORE you meet?

3.  Could she have picked a more frumpy ensemble to sleep in that first night?  It looked like a mu-mu.  She completed the look with nerd glasses and her hair in a bun.

4.  Why didn't she get a hotel room when the a/c went out?  I get claustrophobic just seeing his apartment on tv.  I can't imagine being there when it's 100 degrees.

I find that surprising that she was a princess. I know a couple of girls who were Disney princesses (that's what you get for teaching at a university in FL). Not that she is fat, but Corny is big a little bit for that role. Most of the girls are thin and/or petite. With many of the characters, it's the ability to fit into the costume that counts. 

But it would crack me up if Corny's experience working at a fortune 500 company with a finance degree was in the role of a character in a theme park.

I had a lovely Spanish lover and this was his way as well. Woo me and keep me going and clueless. Flowers,dinners and lots of affection. When I got too close he would vanish for a few days and them appear as if he were the next Messiah. I later learned he did the same to his Mistress and wife. After 3 months in Spain I went home and ignore his please of undying love. What a dickhead.

One of my Disney friends read that Courtney was actually Drisella or Anastasia (Cinderella's step sisters) at 1900 Park Fare restaurant in the Grand Floridan hotel (a Disney hotel). Unless I see pictures of Courtney dressed at Aurora, I am believing what my Disney fanatic friend mentioned in passing. She isn't a fan of the show and has never even watched an episode. She only mentioned it to me because I mentioned something about the show.

Not seeing why people are annoyed with Courtney...and less so with Antonio.  She's still young and naive, but this guy is a complete jerk.  He knew about the tv show, but never turned up at the airport...then was an hour late meeting her outside the Cathedral, then expects her to go to his pageant job that same day...and doesn't understand why she's cranky and tired.  I've seen more episodes, and I'm still in her corner....she's far too good for him...I'm European also in case one anyone wants to use that argument.

Yes he treated her fairly shitty. But why did she keep serving herself up for it? She's old enough to know that we teach people how to treat us. 

I don't think Antonio was a bad dude. A bit of a cad perhaps but Cortney was insufferable.  She whined the entire time and never took the hint that he was completely over her presence.  Learn to read a room and go home!

I think he’s more than “a bit of a cad”; he’s a cad.  But, he pretty much showed Corny Ranch Dip who he is with no apologies.  I think this trip to Spain would have gone much better if Corny had decided to get her own room, do her own thing, and enjoy Spain. If Antonio wanted to hang out with her, she would welcome his company. That way, there would have been no pressure and he would have refuge from her simpering look and droning voice, and they would have had more fun in the process.

It's clear from his behaviour since Cortney arrived in Spain that Antonio isn't a serious prospect as far as marriage is concerned - does he even know that this is what the trip was all about for Cortney? I doubt it very much.  I suspect he's much older than 31 and a man who's lived his life without much responsibility - look at the tiny cupboard-size "apartment" he rents.  Pathetic.  That alone should act as a warning to Cortney that he isn't ideal husband material and I suspect he's had so many women he's lost count so straight to the STD clinic when you get home girl!
