Emily Maynard Interview: Bachelor Winner Cries a Lot, Doesn't Really Explain Brad Womack Split

by at . Comments

In a strange interview Monday, The Bachelor winner Emily Maynard turned on the tears, but didn't really get into why she broke up with Brad Womack.

After Ashley axed Ryan and Lucas, Emily sat down and confirmed to Chris Harrison that she and two-time Bachelor star are no longer engaged.

The waterworks were in full effect, but the details few and far between.

If anything, Maynard had good things to say about her ex-fiance.

"He's such a gentleman," she said. "He's always going to be part of my life. I'll always be in love with Brad. No one will ever hear me say a bad word about him."

So what happened then? All Emily said was that she and daughter Ricki wanted this to work, and that they planned to move to Austin ... but didn't.

Her "wants ... maybe overshadowed the relationship," she said, adding that they were used to being single, making this "a hard adjustment."

So why go on The Bachelor then?! She said "Little red flags would come up," but didn't elaborate, then lamented the paparazzi attention.

Hard to see Emily as the next Bachelorette in any case. Short story, she's sad, but you didn't miss much. It was the opposite of this exchange last summer:


Hey, I fillnay decided to write a comment on your blog. I just wanted to say good job. I really enjoy reading your posts.


...Brad n Em should give it another go! such waste of r beautiful story.. :(


....Cosh I don't know WHAT is wrong with Emily! Cmon Lady he picked you.....what more do you want???? now help him walk the damn road...you too were meant to BE together forever.....Don't wait for your future by yourself!....MAKE it together with the ONE that you LOVE!!! P L E A S E :)


....i wish that at the end they will find their way back to each other, soo sad for them..I knew at the very beginning that she will be the one Brad would choose...but what r waste...cosh :(


you know,you know...i dont know such a drama queen.lol


I am forever indebted to you for this infomrtiaon.


daisy4given@yahoo.com Didn't you watch After The Final Rose? Emily looked like she wasn't into Brad at all! She wasn't even too keen on moving to Austin on the get go. You are giving her way too much credit. LOL


The water works were on? Uhh I saw a lot of weird fake emotion but didn't see a single tear! This girl just wants to be on camera.


I can explain the breakup in 3 simple words Brad isn't Ricky


Oh, Emily. Her sweet voice does get a little annoying after a while and she DID say "you know" a lot, but i don't feel like the interview was a waste. I don't think she was hedging the truth at all. She said that she couldn't see him truly committing to her and that's a pretty damn good reason to not marry someone! It is so commendable that she can see beyond her current emotions and make the decision to let go. I have a lot of respect for Emily as a person and as a mom.

The Bachelor Quotes

There’s still a lot of growing to do in our relationship. We will not tie the knot until I am mentally and physically prepared as well as Matt.

Shayne Lamas

It was a fairytale proposal like I’ve always dreamed about. I forgot that there [were] cameras around. In that moment, it was just Matt and I and it was the most amazing moment of my entire life.
