Back in March of 2011, single mother Emily Maynard was proposed to by Bachelor star Brad Womack. Since they had a pretty nasty split, she is ready to find love as the show’s eighth season Bachelorette!
She has previously said that she didn’t want to be on the ABC show, but has had a change of heart. Reportedly, she will begin filming the show in March in Charlotte, North Carolina, where she raises her daughter, Ricki.
A pal of Emily’s said, “She’s looking for a man – not a little boy.”
Was that a dig at Brad?!?
An insider revealed that instead of doing the filming of the show in a Los Angeles mansion, the guys will actually go to where she lives. The source said, “The guys will be flying to her. We’re switching things up a bit.”
When talking with Bachelor host Chris Harrison, Emily said in Jule 2011, “I wanted to be married and have more children, but I doubted he was going to still want to be with me. As a single mom, I don’t have the luxury of saying ‘we’ll figure it out when we get there.’ I need that reassurance that he’d want to be with me six weeks down the road much less six years.”
What do you think of the casting decision? Will you be watching the eighth season of The Bachelorette?
