“Bachelorette” host Chris Harrison kicks off the Emily Maynard update interview by saying “some” of the couples on the show don’t work out. Uh, shouldn’t that have been “most”? We’re all adults here.
Emily starts off by saing she thought they’d be planning a wedding the next time she saw Chris Harrison. Hmm. Really? ‘Cause myself (and lots of people I know who watch this show) didn’t think you two were going to get married AT ALL.
She’s crying right from the start, which just makes me want to heave. I’m so over Emily and if this is just ABC’s way of keeping her in our minds so she can be the “Bachelorette” next summer? Ughhhh.
She confirms that she and Brad are not engaged anymore, but that he’ll “always be a huge part of [her] life.” She then invokes the friggin’ DOT DOT DOT that Bentley dropped on Ashley. Are you kidding me, Emily?
Emily also says she’ll “always be in love with Brad.” Right up until her “Bachelorette” season starts filming next March, of course.
Now it’s time to dish the dirt on why they broke up. She says there were “red flags,” but doesn’t name them, and says that her “want” to be married overshadowed the reality of the relationship. But there are no real details given. She cries some more as she says she feels like a failure and that it’s heartbreaking.
Chris asks why Brad isn’t there and Emily says, “I wish I didn’t have to sit here.” Uh, you don’t. You don’t have to. Does an ABC production assistant have a gun to Ricki’s head?
And she continues, “I want to tell people.” Hmm. Why? Oh right, next “Bachelorette.” Got it.
The pity party then turns to the paparazzi, which – yeah, they’re invasive. But cry me a river! You signed up for a reality TV show. It’s the price of fame.
Emily also says Brad changed her as a person and that they’ll keep in touch. So he’ll drop by when she’s “Bachelorette”? Help her pick out her new fella?
Moving forward, she says she just wants to focus on being a mom. Well … not signing up for “The Bachelorette” would be a good start.
So that’s how that went. What do you think, “Bachelor” fans?
