Are Brad Womack and Emily Maynard back together? Were they ever apart?

Unclear, but despite myriad breakup reports, The Bachelor couple are determined to make their relationship work, according to reports, and they're working through the "rough patch" that they've encountered in recent weeks.

Witnesses say they reunited in Austin this weekend and were happy as ever!

According to an eyewitness, "Brad was laughing and Emily was smiling" during an intimate meal at Kona Grill and while out for drinks later.

"Emily was her putting her hands in the air and dancing in her seat. They were both smiling and chatting," an eyewitness tells Us Weekly.

When a fan approached The Bachelor star and his gorgeous fiancee for a photo, "they held hands across the table and willingly smiled."

Of course, there are serious issues to work out, such as the long distance factor and the fact that Brad Womack is a temperamental commitment-phobe.

Or so we've heard. Who knows really. Anyway ... think they'll make it?

The Bachelor winner Emily Maynard has severed her engagement to Brad Womack, according to reports. This seconds a prior story that Emily and Brad split.

A source tells OK! that Emily called Brad to call off their wedding and gave back the 3-carat Neil Lane engagement ring from The Bachelor season finale.

Going forward, she will “see what happens.” That's never a positive status.

In the end, Emily Maynard simply felt too much pressure to move to Texas with her 5-year-old daughter Ricki and to conform to Brad’s lifestyle.

“She finally gave up and refused,” a source says. “She said ‘I want my life back.’ ”

Emily and Brad - in their own words - have struggled to stay together since the show. But now various reports hint that things are deteriorating.

There's even the implication that they're pretending to stay together - or at least not confirming the open-secret split - to protect The Bachelor.

It's over, Emily Maynard told Brad Womack on the phone.

That's what Life & Style reports about an April 9 conversation between The Bachelor couple, after she just couldn't imagine marrying the guy.

"Emily told Brad that she can't picture them getting married," an insider reveals to Life & Style. "Brad's not acting like a fiancé, and she knows that he's not going to change. Emily knows in her heart of hearts that the relationship is finished."

Emily Maynard and Brad Womack Split?

Emily Maynard "was very close to moving to Austin with her daughter, Ricki, just a few weeks ago, but that's not true anymore," the insider says.

In fact, Brad put an offer on a new home without consulting Emily Maynard first: "This isn't the behavior of someone who plans to be with her."

The reason for the split stemmed from Brad's hurtful and erratic behavior, L&S says, and the fact that Emily became fearful he was cheating.

Things looked bleak on the After The Final Rose special, but Brad Womack and Emily Maynard swore they were still together and in this for the long haul.

The doubters may be proven wrong after all.

According to Life & Style, Emily Maynard has decided to make the move from North Carolina to Texas with her 5-year-old daughter, Ricki, to be with Brad!

Guess that movie date really won Ricki over ...

Emily, Brad and Pimp

"She feels like the best thing to do is to give this a real shot and put her heart into it by moving to Austin for the summer," an insider close to Emily said.

"She's going to get her own condo there. She's not moving in with him."

As for why Brad didn't move to Charlotte? It was his non-negotiable:

"Love is a compromise, but that's the only thing I was adamant about. I have some strong roots there. I don't want to relocate. I have a career in Austin."

What do you think? Will he and Emily make it?

Are The Bachelor’s Brad Womack and Emily Maynard over already?

If OK! Magazine says so, it must be true, right? Mmmyeah not so much. This fine publication has had Jen Aniston pregnant or adopting about 18 times.

You have to take with a boulder of salt their report that Emily's engagement ring, conspicuously still on last week, is now NO LONGER on. Scandal!

The magazine goes on to say that the "romantic version of Brad and Emily" is all for the cameras, and they're "pretending for the sake of The Bachelor brand."

What nonsense. That brand has less credibility than this magazine. Sure, it's a fun show and we love it too, but let's be real. One marriage. 15 seasons.

In real life, a staffer from the show, who may or may not actually exist, has revealed exclusively to OK! that Emily has broken up with Brad - for GOOD!

“There have been so many breakups and make ups - mostly over the phone or Skype,” a source said. “Finally, Emily told him she can’t do this anymore."

Well, consider us convinced ... or not at all. Don't get us wrong, it wouldn't shock us if they broke up, we're just not buying this account for one second.

Brad and Emily: Will it last?

Rumors of their breakup began swirling about 10 minutes after The Bachelor finale last Monday, but at least for now, all seems well for the happy couple.

Brad Womack's chosen bride-to-be Emily Maynard was seen at the Charlotte airport on Thursday, still wearing her huge engagement ring in this photo.

Emily Maynard also Tweeted that she had just returned from a trip to visit Brad in Austin, and by all accounts it went well, even if they're taking it slow.

The couple seemed destined for each other all season, making some of the After the Final Rose revelations all the more surprising to the show's viewers.

They already briefly broke up once since the finale was taped, he wanted to marry her this month but she declined, and she won't move to Austin - yet.

Nevertheless, she seems committed to Brad Womack and maybe, just maybe, they'll be able to work this thing out and get married when it feels right.

What do you think? Will Brad and Emily last?

Despite the difficulties they described in Monday's After the Final Rose special, The Bachelor's Brad Womack and Emily Maynard are still together.

Moreover, both of them are confident that's never gonna change.

"I'm so happily engaged. I've never been happier, I promise you that," Womack tells People, despite significant bumps in the road with his fiancee.

Chief among the couple's problems? Watching The Bachelor this winter.

As she described after the finale, Emily Maynard had serious issues watching her man woo other women on dates as the season progressed.

It wore on Brad, too. "There have been numerous times where either she or I have said, 'To hell with it. It's just too difficult,'" Womack said.

So much so that fans - and the couple themselves - wondered if it will last. So what kept them together - despite a brief split? Love, of course.

"The hardest part is behind us," Emily says. "I feel pretty confident if we can make it through [the past three months], we'll make it through."

What do you think? Will Brad and Emily last?

If nothing else, The Bachelor season finale was certainly a memorable one. As is often the case, the After the Final Rose special provided many of the fireworks.

Just minutes after Brad Womack's swoon-worthy proposal to Emily Maynard, viewers learned about his terrible temper - and that they briefly parted ways.

They're back together now, but Brad "couldn't speak for Emily" when Chris asked if they're still engaged. Never a good sign. She's also NOT moving to Texas.

Here's the awkward ATFR interview that aired post-finale:

Brad Womack's final rose is set to be doled out on The Bachelor season finale Monday. Reigning Bachelorette Ali Fedotowsky knows who she'd give it to.

"I think both girls are great... but in the last two episodes, his connection with Emily [Maynard] has been undeniable," Fedotowsky told Us Weekly.

What makes Brad and Emily such a great fit?

Secrets of The Bachelor Finale

HE'S THE ONE: Roberto was for Ali. Will Brad be for Emily?

"It's been the little things that he's done - like he had that little picnic for her at the beginning outside. He is just so smitten with her," Ali said of "Brad's" courtship.

THG NOTE: Seriously, Al, you were on the show. You can at least give props to host-pimp Chris Harrison, who we all know sets up dates for his employees.

Anyway, Ali says when Brad is with Emily Maynard, the truest sign of love is that "he wants to do anything to sort of reassure her - like telling her he loved her."

"They are both southern and polite, and I just think they'd make a really cute little couple. All along I thought it was going to be those two," she admits.

What do you think? Who should Brad choose on the Bachelor finale?
