Lauren Bushnell and JoJo Fletcher have revealed the status of their friendship now after Ben & Lauren: Happily Ever After?'s premiere suggested tension has existed ever since The Bachelor wrapped filming.
Bushnell has held onto resentment after getting engaged to Ben Higgins on The Bachelor -- which aired as part of Season 20's finale in March -- because he also loved Fletcher, who later vented about having her heart broken even while starring on her own season of The Bachelorette.
"For someone who has supposedly moved on, JoJo talks a lot about Ben," Bushnell griped on last night's episode while she and Higgins were shown watching a marathon of Fletcher's journey to find love on ABC.
Becca Tilley, who also competed for Higgins' heart and became best friends with Fletcher in the process, attempted to set the record straight on Twitter.
"Pretty sure JoJo is over Ben. Pretty sure Ben is over JoJo. Pretty sure Lauren & JoJo are friends. And pretty sure producers pushed that," Tilley tweeted last night.
"@beccatilley5 & I'm pretty sure you're right Rebecca!" Fletcher replied.
Bushnell also denied a riff with Fletcher in light of the Happily Ever After? episode making her look a bit insecure and jealous.
"NO jealously just honesty. Being in love on the bachelor is hard guys," Bushnell wrote.
In response to a fan questioning whether the former flight attendant is still friends with Fletcher, Bushnell tweeted in reply, "Yes. Never let a man get in the way of a friendship. Call that man out!"
Bushnell also insisted the rest of the season will "definitely not" be all about the love triangle. It appears viewers are over it, just as Higgins, Bushnell and Fletcher seem to be.
