Holly Sweeney is better known as the woman Rory McIlroy dumped in favor of Caroline Wozniacki. While Rory and Caroline are having a grand old time taking pictures and making bets with each other, Sweeney was coming off as a bitter ex.

We told you about the “golf pros and tennis hoes” themed dinner she was hosting last year for a TV show, and the series, titled “Celebrity Come Dine With Me Ireland,” is finally airing.

The episode debuted Monday night and the Irish Independent says Sweeney was criticized by one of her diners for being stuck on McIlroy.

“For a woman who is trying to move on from a previous relationship and rebuild her life and establish her own personality, she should stop harping on about golf to be perfectly honest,” says Michael O’Doherty, one of the show’s characters.

Sweeney also responded over Twitter to a critic who accused her of continuing to cash in on her relationship with McIlroy:

@JamesToothpaste not a penny, kid. It’s the papers that are still interested, not me.

— Holly Sweeney (@HFCSween) April 8, 2012

Given that Sweeney quit school to work on her entertainment career, we’d say she’s capitalizing of her status. Sweeney also received criticism on the show for only being a celebrity because of her past association with McIlroy. The two were together for a long time and Sweeney even admitted she was planning to watch her ex compete at the Masters.
