‘The Bachelor’ stars Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell had a bit of a strained relationship from the start , when Ben told the other final contestant, JoJo Fletcher, that he loved her too! Lauren confessed in a new interview that she may have some leftover anger about that mess-up!
On the finale of what Chris Harrison called the “most dramatic season of The Bachelor ever, season 20 Bachelor Ben Higgins, 28, said “I love you” to both now-fiancée Lauren Bushnell, 26, and JoJo Fletcher, 25! Ben and Lauren, now engaged and the stars of Ben and Lauren: Happily Ever After, are apparently experiencing a little turbulence in their marriage, and it has to do with what Lauren’s calling the “JoJo Situation”!
“The most frustrating part is that it’s known as the ‘JoJo Situation,’” Lauren told Us Weekly. “She was involved, but I think no matter who was at the end, or whatever, and no matter what happened, it would’ve been really hard for me and Ben to move past.” That’s rough! Lauren divulged that it really wasn’t JoJo herself that was the problem; she was upset with Ben!
“I did carry some resentment towards [Ben], not with JoJo,” Lauren explained to the mag. “I had such a hard time trying to understand and put myself in his shoes and finally was like, ‘I will never understand. I will never be the Bachelor. Thankfully.’”
There’s really nothing Lauren needs to worry about anymore; this love triangle has definitely split! JoJo is engaged to ESPN sportscaster Jordan Rodgers, 28! Things have actually gotten so great between Lauren, Ben and JoJo that they went on a double date! That’s right, the two couples met up for lunch, and everyone survived!
