Mrs. Carter: What did Josh have to say?
If you’ve been reading us for the past 24 hours or so, then you already know the news that Josh Murray and Amanda Stanton are officially no more. Amanda confirmed the news in an interview, saying that she wasn’t sure when to put out a statement but that the two were unfortunately no more after being engaged since the summer. The two met on “Bachelor in Paradise,” and for a while they seemed to be in a good place despite Josh receiving a ton of criticism during the show airing.
Now, Josh has issued a statement of his own to Us Weekly — he shares his side of the story, but there’s nothing in here necessarily that will drum up controversy. It’s fairly run-of-the-mill when it comes to statements aside from the sad news about some of the recent losses in his life:
“It’s been a tough couple of weeks for me … I’m no longer engaged, my beautiful dog, Sabel, passed away and then my uncle just passed away as well. I’m emotionally drained. As for our relationship, it just wasn’t working out and it sucks. I moved across the country for her, I fell in love with her kids, really loved her family, but we just weren’t able to grow together as a couple and it was very frustrating.
“We have similar things we want in life, but we are also very different on other important things as well … I will always love her and the little ones, they held a special place in my heart. I hope everyone can respect our relationship and just pray for our happiness in the future. I will always wish nothing but the best for her, she deserves it.”
We don’t know what happened between the two of them behind closed doors, but we also don’t really need to know. They’re moving on, so we figure that we may as well also. The only main question that remains is what the future could be holding for the two of them. We figure that “Bachelor in Paradise” would want either one of them back in the future, but they would have to agree to go through with it. For the time being, that is the biggest question mark.
