The 30-year-old shared the "harsh" reasons behind her split from her "The Bachelor Winter Games" co-star on Wednesday's episode of her Ben and Ashley I Almost Famous podcast.
"It sounds a little harsh but it's just that lack of magic," she explained. "We get along very well, but there's just a little something missing and you can't really pinpoint what it is. That's just how I feel."
Wendt, who spoke to Iaconetti and her co-host, Ben Higgins, on the podcast, agreed the relationship was short on "spark."
"You get these connections all the time where if you take away our outside world and just put Ashley and me on an island together, we'd probably get along really well and that's what ['The Bachelor Winter Games'] was," the star said.
"Then you add in everything else -- everyday interest to when we get up in the morning -- there's just lifestyles where two people can go in different directions. It doesn't mean that they still don't love and respect each other," he added.
