“The Bachelorette” Emily Maynard is said to be feuding with her deceased fiance’s parents, according to reports. The latest Hollywood gossip surrounding the reality star is that his parents are miffed at her for having her six-year-old daughter Ricki on the show.
“Us Weekly” reports that Ricky Hendricks’ parents are still giving Emily financial support, but they are not too keen on the idea of having their granddaughter in the spotlight.
A source revealed, “When Emily went on The Bachelor, they weren’t pleased, but they supported her. Now they’re not speaking. They don’t want their grandchild in the spotlight. They are private people.”
Instead of forgoing the show altogether, Emily had the show filmed in her home state of North Carolina. The source said, “They didn’t want Ricki uprooted. They also wanted Ricki kept out of the spotlight, not exploited.”
Emily is said to be engaged to the winner of the show, but that won’t be unveiled on the network until the season finale — which airs on July 16th. Rumor has it that Emily has become “difficult” since being the star of the show. The spy added, “She is painted in this Mother Teresa light. She is a nice girl, but she isn’t as good as she’s made out to be. She knew she was the star, so she became a bit of a diva.”
