Lauren Bushnell Lane opens up about hitting rock bottom
Lauren Bushnell was the final rose recipient on Ben Higgins’s season of The Bachelor. The two were engaged and moved in together in Colorado. They even had a reality show, Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After? However, things didn’t work out. They split and it left Lauren in a low place.
People shared that Lauren wasn’t in a good place following that split. Lauren and Ben had been engaged only a year and ended things in 2017. Lauren said, “I was really in a low place. I was kind of at that rock bottom place.”
She continued saying, “I needed to get there, though, in order to reflect and figure out who I was and what I wanted.” Lauren went on to say, “I think I needed to just be alone, refocus on myself and rebuild who I was without a camera in my face.”
Looking back she thinks that doing the reality show was a mistake. She was still processing everything that happened during the show and wasn’t in the best place to do it.
She also said their relationship ended mutually. The physical attraction was there but their emotional chemistry seemed to reach its peak.
Fame gave her anxiety
Lauren went on to say that being thrown into the spotlight was hard on her. She said, “I don’t necessarily like all eyes on me. There was a lot of criticism involved. The foundation was rocky already, and not just the relationship but my own mental health.”
After her split from Ben, she began dating Chris. He was everything she wanted and more. The two married and in June 2021 they welcomed their first child.
As for Ben, he and Jessica Clarke finally wed in November 2021 after postponing their nuptials due to Covid. Ben has been vocal about not being intimate with Jessica until they were husband and wife.
Jessica had waited until marriage and waiting with her was something Ben felt was the right thing to do. Overall it made their connection even stronger.
