We guess paradise just couldn't last.
As we've previously told you, reports circulated before the holidays that Bachelor in Paradise couple Amanda Stanton and Josh Murray had called off their engagement, despite their very intimate appearance on social media.
Well, it just goes to show you that not everything is what it seems as the mother-of-two opened up about the split while attending last night's star-studded Bachelor premiere party for Nick Viall in El Lay, which benefited SheLift and Globe-athon.

Talking to ET, the 26-year-old confirmed:
"I actually haven't talked about it yet, because it's been a little hard. I haven't really, you know, thought about what to say, but yeah, we did break up. It's sad."
The TV personality continued:
"I just think there are some things in a relationship you can work on, you know, nobody is perfect. But then there's also things that you just can't work on and things that you just know aren't going to work out in the long run … It's hard, you know, he moved across the country to live with us and I think, at the end of the day, we're just very different people and things just didn't work out. Just normal relationship things."
The blogger went on to admit the breakup had "pretty good timing," considering her young daughters had become close with the former athlete:
"We ended things right before holidays and the next day, my mom flew out [with] my dad, my sister, her boyfriend, we had the entire family there. I think it was a good transition… it was a little easier for them."
Miz Stanton also told Us Weekly of the "weird situation":
"We did break up. It's been kind of a weird situation because we broke up and we didn't release a statement, obviously, so I think people have been kind of going crazy wondering if we're together or if we're not and we're not."
The blonde beauty shared:
"It wasn't something that I was trying to hide. I just didn't know what the right time was to say something or really what to say about it. I think it's good to kind of set the record straight. Hopefully everyone can know the truth now."
We guess that's that, folks!
