Amanda Stanton on Lauren Bushnell’s Split, Their New Business, and Josh Murray


Lauren Bushnell is a lucky gal — she’s got Bachelor Nation bestie Amanda Stanton to help her get over her recent breakup.

The Bachelor 2016 winner and Ben Higgins just announced the end of their 18-month engagement last week, but she’s got her pal to keep her busy — particularly on the business front!

In a new interview, Amanda reveals the two have plans to continue their fashion careers after their recent modeling gig together.

“We want to start an online boutique,” the 27-year-old tells in a Facebook Live.

She continues, “We’ve been talking about it for so long and I feel like we’ve just been putting it off because we’ve been so busy and just dealing with a lot, but hopefully we'll get started on it pretty soon.”

As for what kind of products the girls will have in their online shop, the sky’s the limit!

The single mom says customers will see “everything” in their currently unnamed store, including “clothes, shoes, accessories,” and more.

This couldn’t come at a better time for the newly-single Lauren, who just moved back to L.A. from Denver, where she was living with Ben.

“They’re both such great people and they both love and respect each other so much and things just didn't work out,” her BFF muses.

The SoCal native also gives a little insight into the reason for their breakup, detailing that it was “hard to get back to the real world” for the couple after the show.

She also notes the “pressure from fans” who want the relationship to work out.

“You don’t want to let them down, so I definitely think that adds kind of like a weird pressure to your relationship,” she adds.

And the pint-sized blonde would know!

She herself has gone through a somewhat ugly, very public split from ex-fiancé Josh Murray — one that Lo was a great support throughout.

“I’m definitely trying to be there for her [now],” she spills, revealing that she’s been “driving up to L.A. to just hang out because I know it can be lonely.”

Speaking of Josh, there were reports last week that the Atlanta hunk is “desperately trying to get back with” Amanda. But that’s not happening, according to her.

She states, “It's funny because sometimes these articles will come out, or I'll get asked about them, and I literally have no idea who these sources are or where they're getting their information.”

“We've seen each other a couple times [since]. I think that's just kind of bound to happen when you're both part of the Bachelor family, but no, we're not going to get back together,” she concludes.

“He's not trying to get back with me. I'm not trying to get back with him. I think we've both moved on.”

So there you have it, straight from the gal herself!

Can we finally put all that Jamanda stuff to bed now?
