Much like other Bachelor couples, Emily Maynard and Brad Womack’s relationship ended on a decidedly sour note.
So much so, that Womack earlier this year told his local ABC news station: “I think I dodged a bullet with that relationship.”
“All I’ll say is she is a helluva woman and I hope it works out,” he said about her gig as the new Bachelorette. And he added defiantly: “I have no interest in [watching the show].”
But while he clearly has no intention of reuniting with the Southern belle, could Maynard be hoping for a reconciliation even though she is currently engaged?
Well, latest reports claim that she is back in contact with the 38-year-old Womack.
Life & Style magazine has all the latest news….
Reality is setting in for Emily Maynard of The Bachelorette.
In the new issue of Life & Style, on stands now, an insider reveals exclusively that Emily – who got engaged to her final Bachelor on the Caribbean island of Curaçao in early May, is having doubts about the guy she picked and is turning to her ex, Brad Womack of The Bachelor, for support.
“They call and text each other,” the source confirms to Life & Style. “They weren’t on good terms after their painful breakup, but Brad says they’re talking now, and it’s throwing him for a loop. It’s weird timing, but if anyone can understand what Emily is going through, it’s Brad.”
Although Emily endured a tough breakup with Brad, the two have finally come to terms with their split. “She’s turning to him during this time,” an insider says. “If Emily doesn’t really know her new fiancé, like she didn’t know Brad, then I can see how she must be confused.”
“Any woman in Emily’s shoes would second-guess her choice,” a second insider adds about Emily, who is a single mom and back home in Charlotte, N.C., now with her daughter, Ricki. “She had such strong feelings for at least four of the guys, so of course she has to wonder: Did I pick the right one?”
Former Bachelorette Jillian Harris, who split with her final Bachelor, Ed Swiderski, less than a year after they got engaged, can sympathize with Emily’s situation. Though it appears Emily is spending countless hours with each Bachelor, in the end “you’re picking a fiancé after spending maybe a total of 20 hours with him,” says Jillian.
