Is Emily Maynard really as sweet and down-to-earth as she seems on The Bachelorette? Probably, but that doesn't make for good celebrity gossip!
That's got to be the rationale for Us Weekly’s most recent issue, which touts “shocking secrets” about Maynard, the 26-year-old single mom.
They have four major claims, which we break down below:
- Nose job, breast implants, fake teeth, etc. "Sources" say she went under the knife prior to taping Brad Womack’s season of The Bachelor in 2010.
- She's a temperamental b!tch: “Maynard has admitted that her relationship with Brad post-Bachelor was marred by 'knock-down, drag-out fights.'"
- She and Ricki’s grandparents hate each other: The late Ricky Hendrick’s parents are “livid” Maynard decided to do a second round of reality TV.
- She's kind of a social-climbing snob: “Emily is a bit of a social climber” who's dated "some heavy hitters" and enjoys the finer things in life.
All in all, kind of a non-story. She’s naturally gorgeous, even if she wears too much make-up, and couples fight sometimes. Brad's no picnic either.
As for her telling Kalon McMahon to hit the bricks, if someone called your kid “baggage,” well, you aren't a b!tch for snapping back. You're human.
Ricky's parents hating her? Who knows. It's not hard to believe there's tension or they don't like her going on The Bachelorette for obvious reasons.
Really, Us, you're stretching a little bit here.
