by at . Comments

ABC finally confirmed the news we've been all but sure of for over a week: Emily Maynard is getting her second shot at love on The Bachelorette in 2012!

The 25-year-old single mom from North Carolina, will footsteps of Ashley Hebert ... who she bested for Brad Womack's love on The Bachelor last spring.

Maynard, who went on to split with Brad last summer, will begin filming in March, a source said, adding, "She's looking for a man ... not a little boy."

An interesting comment, since Brad is more than a decade older than Em.

The West Virginia native, who resides in Charlotte, N.C., with her 6-year-old daughter Ricki, was previously engaged to NASCAR driver and owner Ricky Hendrick.

He died in a plane crash in October 2004 while Maynard was pregnant, but before she even realized it. She went on to name their daughter after her late fiance.

"Emily’s strength, passion and southern charm - as a mother and as a woman - would make anyone happy to make her his wife," ABC says in a press release.

"She found love again with Brad and, even though it didn’t work out, she realized that the series can work. Among those 25 men, she is looking for someone who makes her laugh, doesn’t take himself too seriously and can be her best friend."

"Emily Maynard is hoping that the third time is the charm."

I can't believe that Emily is going to be the Bachelorette! She was picked and then changed her mind. I think you should choose someone that was not picked and is seriously looking for love. I am a long time fan of this show and this has really changed my mind about watching now. But, there is always two and a half men to watch on Monday nights.


CBS should let the viewer start choosing the bachelorettes
this is a bad choice


I can't get anything right on this ao I wish to say, I have been caught in a web or scam. It's your Luminess Air Brush products. I was in the hospital and they ripped me for $300.00+ through my bank account. It was misinforming in the commercial. DON'T ANYONE ELSE GET SCAMMED BY THIS COMPANY. In one month's time they slid $300
from my account. I am on disability, hse needs repairs and they slid $300 out of my bank acct. I want it back because I need it.
I'm still not released and I don't need somebody taking advantage
of anybody. It's a scam-people that answer the phone are overseas.
Is this the image you want on your header page?????? SCAM SCAM SCAM


Tired of seeing same people over again. Bring on someone new each year.
