Good, we're glad Ashley Hebert noticed that, too.

The former Bachelorette, while admitting that she didn't find Courtney Robertson as despicable as usual on last night's episode of The Bachelor, totally called out the 28-year-old model for ripping off her so-called heartfelt vows from Sex and the City.

You know, from the series finale, when Carrie breaks it off with the Russian? Right before Big tracks her down in Paris?

"First of all, I do have to say that Courtney's ceremony was a little bit of a rip-off idea—because we did that on my season, with William," recalled Hebert, who's been engaged to her pick of the litter, J.P. Rosenbaum, since The Bachelorette ended. "And she stole her vows from Sex and the City!"

Courtney memorably told Ben, "I am looking for love. Real love. Passionate, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love."

But Sarah Jessica Parker even more memorably told Mikhail Baryshnikov, "I am someone who is looking for love. Real love. Ridiculous, inconvenient, consuming, can't-live-without-each-other love."

"There are some people I can read really well, but I can't figure her out," Hebert continued. "I'm trying to give her the benefit of the doubt! But with this ceremony that she puts on for Ben, I'm trying ot figure out if she's just trying to find a sweet way to tell him that she loves him, or if she's just trying to move on to the next round.

"Is this forced? Is this real? I'm having a really hard time figuring it out."

You and us both, kid. But Hebert, who turned down Ben's proposal in preparation to accept J.P.'s, thinks that Ben is falling for it—whatever it is—hook, line and sinker.

"You can see it in his face, 'This is it.' And he believes her," she says. "If I were the other girls and I was watching this back, I would be so upset. He pretty much got married to Courtney, pretty much had sex with her when they went skinny-dipping. You know, it's like, what a rip-off for the other girls. Especially if he doesn't end up with Courtney!"

And for those fans who are shocked that he's not going to end up with Kacie B., who was released from the Bachelor after Ben met her parents, Hebert says that she realized something last night about Ben's relationship with the 24-year-old from Tennesse.

"I think Ben sees Kacie as a friend, not a lover," she says. "I wish she had acted more like a woman," instead of a little girl, with the batons and the marching band.

And as for Kacie's question—"what the f--k happened?!"—Hebert says simply that "Courtney happened."

"After knowing Ben," she concludes, "I think he will choose Courtney."
