Lauren Bushnell Opens Up About How She Really Feels About Ben's Love for JoJo

Most people have a hard enough time hearing their partners talk about their exes, but poor Lauren Bushnell has been forced to spend the last few months watching her fiancé fall in with somebody else. It's not necessarily an easy start to a new relationship, but Lauren has a pretty good attitude about Ben and JoJo's relationship, considering.


Of course, the watching-your-fiancé-date-other-women thing comes with the Bachelor territory, but Lauren's situation is a little unusual: Ben is the first Bachelor to tell two women he loves them. 

That puts Lauren in an awkward position: Does she forgive Ben now, or do they have to backtrack in their relationship and deal with the issues that came up when the show was filming?

Lauren told People that the past few months have been harder than filming was.

"Post filming was more of an emotional roller coaster than the actual show," she said. "I fall more in love with Ben every day and it's hard to separate what happened long ago and my current feelings. It's confusing. It does wear on me."

But she also says Ben is a good listener, and so far, they've been able to talk through the emotional regurgitation. 

As for Ben, he says he doesn't regret telling JoJo he loves her, because it was the honest thing to say at the time.

"I can't apologize for being honest or expressing what I thought was the best thing to express at the time," he told People. "Throughout this whole show airing and conversations we've had about decisions and life, it hasn't always been easy. But it's added a whole new level to our relationship."

He added that Lauren's the only woman he'll love from now on. Barf. But honestly -- we believe it. These two kiddos were meant for each other from day one.
