Ashley Hebert has no plans to marry J.P. Rosenbaum at the moment.

But that doesn't mean there's trouble for the pair. They're just busy.

"We're so busy that even if I wanted to plan [a wedding] right now, I don't think I could," the former Bachelorette star told People in a recent interview.

Ashley Hebert, who is in her final weeks of dental school and currently applying to pediatric residencies in NYC, says, "My brain is just not there right now."

Like Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez, there is no wedding date at the moment, but unlike their predecessors, Ash and J.P. are sure there will be.

The couple isn't waiting too long, and will "start talking about [weddings] after the New Year," assured J.P., who bested Ben Flajnik last season.

For now, they're just enjoying what downtime they have and getting used to living together in New York after a whirlwind Bachelorette courtship.

"My closet space is a lot less now and the place is twice as big," joked J.P. "But it's her idiosyncrasies that I love and there's no pet peeve of hers that gets to me."

As for downtime? "We just both have really busy, crazy lives, so staying in, making dinner and watching a movie is my personal favorite," said Ash.

Ashley and J.P.: Will it last?

Former Bachelor and Bachelorette star DeAnna Pappas and Stephen Stagliano, the twin brother of Bachelor Pad winner Michael Stagliano, are married!

The couple wed Saturday in her home state of Georgia.

DeAnna Pappas, 29, walked down the aisle in a strapless Disney Bridal wedding gown with a birdcage veil and cowboy boots. "They were giddy with excitement," an observer at the unforgettable affair said. "She looked incredibly happy."

Michael Stagliano and Holly Durst, his then-fiance and also a contestant on The Bachelor, originally set the couple up. Stephen proposed in August 2010.

Durst and Michael Stagliano went on to win Bachelor Pad this summer, but he was caught off guard by her engagement to cast member Blake Julian.

Pappas, who was rejected by Brad Womack the first time he starred on The Bachelor, became The Bachelorette and got engaged to Jesse Csincsak.

That did not last long. But this one's gonna be forever!

Ali Fedotowsky and Roberto Martinez got engaged on The Bachelorette season finale in the summer of 2010, with the actual proposal taking place months earlier.

They've been together the whole time since, living in San Diego and going about their lives. But with no wedding on the horizon, is there trouble afoot?

According to Us Weekly, more than you even KNOW.

While Ali Fedotowsky has blamed the postponements on scheduling conflicts and a bad kickboxing injury, "pals" say their issues run way deeper than that.

"Their relationship has been tumultuous since day one," a mutual friend says of the pair, whose nuptials were supposed to be an ABC Bachelorette special.

Due to both of them working long hours and other stresses taking their toll on the couple, "They're either extremely happy or can't stand each other."

"They bring out the worst in each other," the source adds, noting that after one spat, "Ali was in tears ... she's miserable in the relationship and he is too."

For what it's worth, Ali seemed very happy in her interview with THG this summer, and this is the first we've heard of any strife between them. Time will tell.

Sonoma winery proprietor Ben Flajnik may not have won Ashley Hebert's heart on The Bachelorette finale August 1, but he won over millions of viewers.

Jennifer Love Hewitt among them.

"OMG! Ben F [accept] my final rose!!!" the star excitedly Tweeted after Ashley dumped Ben for JP Rosenbaum. "Gotta book a flight to Sonoma!!"

The funny thing? She wasn't kidding.

The actress/serial dater flew out to San Francisco August 6 for a sexy date with Ben Flajnik. The two hung out at San Francisco hot spot Lion's Pub.

Apparently it went well. "Ben from The Bachelorette is making out with Jennifer Love Hewitt," one eyewitness claimed. That about sums it up.

Another fan who saw the two even said they may be a couple already, exclaiming, "Oh yeah, Ben and Jennifer Love Hewitt appeared to be dating."

Ben, a prime candidate to star as The Bachelor, recently teased on Twitter that he has a lot to ponder. Wonder if JLH has something to say about it.

Who should be the next Bachelor?

Now together publicly, The Bachelorette star Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum, her final rose recipient, seemed in great spirits in NYC last weekend.

The duo went to downtown hotspot Beauty and Essex for dinner on Friday. Ashley was "so sweet and nice and took pictures" with fans, sources say.

Saturday morning, Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum had breakfast at Coffee Shop in Union Square, then spent time walking around with friends.

Also on hand? Hebert's once-disapproving sister, Chrystie Corns!

JP and Ash

Ashley's elder sibling infamously disapproved of J.P. on The Bachelorette finale, but according to a source, the two are "on very good terms now."

That's good to hear. Latert, Rosenbaum threw an engagement party of sorts so his friends could meet Hebert. About 40 people met at Casa La Femme.

After dinner and dessert, it was time for some belly dancing! "Ashley danced with the belly dancers. She's such a good sport," says the insider.

The best part about their relationship? The source says:

"That they don't have to keep this a secret anymore. They're so happy to be a couple and show everyone how in love they are with one another."

Will Ashley and J.P. last? It looks like it, so far ...

She had to three endure months of tears (William Holman), deceitful lies (Bentley Williams), surprise exits (Constantine, Lucas), betrayals (Bentley again) and even criticism from one of her own siblings (Chrystie Corns).

But through it all, Ashley Hebert met J.P. Rosenbaum. For that she is ever grateful.

"I've never looked back for a second on my decision," she says.

In fact, Ashley credits J.P., who proposed to her in Fiji, with helping her recover from her ill-fated romance with that two-timing ass clown Bentley.

She also says her relationship with the 34-year-old New York construction manager didn't truly begin until The Bachelorette finale had come and gone.

"Our relationship really started after we left the show," she says, despite the secrecy. "The show made us stronger than if we'd met on the outside."

Former Bachelorette star Ali Fedotowsky is still engaged to her final rose recipient, Roberto Martinez, and loving life as a morning show correspondent in San Diego.

Well, for the most part. A recent injury really set her back! In an exclusive interview, Fedotowsky told us how Ab Cuts is aiding her recovery from a fractured femur.

Remind us not to take up kickboxing.

She also reflected on her stint as The Bachelorette, told us what her life has been like since, and talked all about this season's happy ending for Ashley Hebert.

Here's our chat with Ali:

Okay, Chrystie Corns didn't apologize for being on TLC's Extreme Couponing. There's nothing to apologize for - do you realize how much money you can save?!

Ashley Hebert's sister, who was seriously profiled on that show in its first season, is better known for her performance on The Bachelorette season finale.

More than 9 million viewers tuned in to see Ashley Hebert get engaged to J.P. Rosenbaum, and most of them were thrilled. Chrystie Corns? Not so much.

"I made a big mistake," Corns says of hastily judging Rosenbaum and curtly telling both of them to their faces that they simply weren't a good match.

Not only did she prefer Ashley Hebert and runner-up Ben Flajnik together, she even said that Brad Womack and Ashley had better chemistry. Ouch.

She has since done a 180, however: "As I started watching the season, however, it's very clear to me that J.P. was the one. He was the best choice."

With Ashley Hebert engaged as of The Bachelorette season finale, J.P. Rosenbaum is officially spoken for. But four good catches from this season are not.

Will one of them be selected as the star of The Bachelor this winter?

Already a fan favorite, runner-up Ben Flajnik would surely be a strong choice, having won over viewers on the finale and After the Final Rose special last night.

Ames Brown would be great, too. Everyone loves Ames! Don't discount the Greek God, Constantine Tzortis, either. Ashley even suggested Ryan Park somehow.

Of course, as we saw last time when runner-up Chris Lambton turned down the gig, ABC could go in a different direction. Third time's the charm, Brad?

We kid ... mostly. Stranger things have happened. Odds are that the show goes with one of these four, however. Which, if any, would you like to see? Vote:

Who should star as The Bachelor next season?

J.P. Rosenbaum certainly gave Ashley Hebert - and TV audiences across the country - a happy ending last night when he nervously popped the question.

The 26-year-old dental student from Philadelphia accepted J.P.'s marriage proposal immediately. From a man she calls "my rock," was there ever a doubt?

"We complement each other so well," Hebert said today on Good Morning America, the couple's first, live TV appearance together as an engaged couple.

Ashley, J.P. Kiss

Ashley on JP: "He's exactly what I've been looking for."

The couple announced that Ashley Hebert and J.P. Rosenbaum will soon be living in the same city after she relocates to New York in the near future.

That said, they have no plans to rush down the aisle.

"She's going to move to New York City, finish up school," J.P. said. "We're going to find a place, she'll get a job, we'll get settled and then we're going to talk about a wedding ... Maybe fall of next year, or end of next year."

The Bachelorette season finale is in the books, but for Ashley, 26, and J.P., 34, they feel that only now can their lives can finally begin.
