Bachelor's Estella Splits from New Beau

It’s still a bumpy road to romance for those in the Bachelor-sphere. Estella Gardinier, whose romance with Bachelor Bob Guiney was short-lived, has split from her latest beau, country singer Steve Holy, whom she met in May.

“It just wasn’t the right time for us,” Gardinier, 28, tells PEOPLE in its latest issue. “We’re both really busy and live in separate places.” (She’s in Beverly Hills; he’s in Dallas.)

After her breakup with Bachelor Bob Guiney last year, Estella Gardinier made a pact with a friend to take a year off from dating – only she wasn’t able to stick to it, PEOPLE reports in its upcoming issue.

“I wanted to focus on spending time with my mom and my friends,” says the Beverly Hills mortgage broker. That was before she met country singer Steve Holy.
