Is ABC seriously thinking of making Emily Maynard The Bachelorette again?

After two failed engagements on the popular franchise, the 26-year-old single mom may just get her happy ending after all … or another reality TV heartbreak.

The third time’s the charm, as the saying goes …

“There’s been talk about bringing Emily back for another season,” said an insider of the rumors, which first surfaced in October and have yet to subside.


Maynard’s return would be reminiscent of Brad Womack … who proposed to Emily on his second stint on The Bachelor, only to break up with her soon after.

“Emily would come back like Brad got the chance to do because she has so many fans,” the source said of Maynard, who got engaged to Jef Holm in 2012.

She and Jef cited “different points” in their lives as the reason for the split. The two reportedly reconciled briefly this winter, but she dumped him again.

“Emily and Jef are not getting back together … they’re a done deal,” added the insider, suggesting that it could pave the way for her third shot at love.

How over are she and Jef? The Southern belle is expected to return her $68,000 3.5 carat Neil Lane engagement ring soon, if she hasn’t already.

Meanwhile, one of her runners-up, Sean Lowe, signed on for The Bachelor in 2013 (premiering Monday). Check out The Bachelor spoilers for scoop!
