Remove that .01% from the equation, readers: Emily Maynard and Brad Womack are most definitely over.
"We're no longer engaged," Maynard says in the latest issue of People. The statement came just minutes after she taped an interview with Chris Harrison that will air on the July 11 episode of The Bachelorette.
With speculation growing every week over Emily and Brad's status, Maynard says she's confirming the couple's split now because she wants her life with six-year-old daughter, Ricki to "get back to normal."Womack, who will NOT appear on camera next month with Maynard and Harrison, also told People he and Emily were over, stating: "The demise of our relationship was completely my fault."
But Emily isn't interested in assigning blame: "Just because we love each other doesn't mean we're right for each other," she says.
What a boring, mature, staged break-up. Where are the Jake and Vienna-like fireworks?!?
