Chris Soules may have moved on from ex-fiancée Whitney Bischoff by focusing on farming, but The Bachelor star revealed in an exclusive interview with OKMagazine.com that not all love is lost between the former flames.
“We had an amicable separation,” Soules told OKMagazine.com while promoting America's Pig Farmer of the Year for the National Pork Board. “We’re still friends, great friends.”
Although the former Dancing With the Stars contestant kept his lips sealed on the cause of the breakup because he felt it wasn’t “appropriate for him to talk about things that happened when she’s not here,” he did delve into how close they are despite the broken engagement.
“She just went out for a glass of wine with my sister the other night,” he explained. “We went through a really crazy thing and I’m lucky to have her in my life as a friend as a result.”
Although Soules’ relationship status is single at the moment, fans of Prince Farming won’t see him searching for love on the small screen for a third time.
“I don’t think I have much of a future in dating on television again,” he said of a possible stint on a Bachelor spinoff. “I’m grateful for the opportunity I had and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I’m okay with dating in the real world from now on.”
