The first source says that Jen is taking it particularly hard, as she hates having less than 100% success in any of her endeavors.

“She’s upset and really thought she and Ben would be the endgame this time,” the source says.

These two are fiercely private, so we may never know exactly where things went wrong.

But at least for now, it seems we’d better put our hopes for an easing of tensions between Boston and New York on hold!
