Ben & Lauren: WEDDING OFF AND SHOW CANCELED!
The bloom is off the rose for Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell. The Bachelor alums have called off their wedding after finding out their panned reality series, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?, has not been renewed for a second season, a source tells In Touch. “Their relationship has been tense for a while now, but their show being canceled was really the final straw,” explains the source. “They had been fighting constantly about where to live and about money. They really were banking on the show being a huge hit and solving all their problems. When that didn’t happen, it led them to rethink a lot of things, including their marriage decision.” It doesn’t help that Ben, 28, and Lauren, 26, have nothing in common. “Lauren is emotional and has a temper, while Ben is very controlled and calm,” says the source. “They’ve been putting on this happy front for months and they’re just sick of it.” Now that it’s over, they can both breathe a sigh of relief. “The plan right now is to finish out this season of the show,” adds the source, “and then go their separate ways.”
