Ben Flajnik may have gotten the boot from Ashley Hebert when he appeared on her season of The Bachelorette, but after the show, and any hard feelings were smoothed over and reports even surfaced that Ben would be attending Ashley’s wedding to the man she picked on the show, JP Rosenbaum. However, now that the couple has set a date, it looks like Ben has had a change of plans.
“He has a work commitment,” an insider revealed to Wetpaint. “A wine club party He couldn’t get out of it.” The insider added that Ben would have loved to be there if he could have and the ‘no’ RSVP was in no way a snub to Ashley or her fiance JP. In fact, Ben and JP are actually quite close.
“Ben and JP have actually become good friends in the past year and a half,” another insider adds. “And Ashley adores him. There are no hard feelings. Inviting Ben wasn’t even a question.” It’s a shame that Ben won’t be attending the December ceremony. It will be filmed for ABC and air later this year, so it would have been nice for fans to see that Ben and Ashley have remained close. However, there will surely be a few other Bachelor people in the audience.
