Emily Maynard and Brad Womack ended their relationship last summer after getting engaged on the season finale of The Bachelor. And now that Emily's latest engagement is on the rocks, she's turning to her former fiancÃ© for support!
According to Life & Style, Emily, who reportedly accepted a proposal on the upcoming season finale of The Bachelorette, "is having doubts about the guy she picked." So she's been secretly reaching out to her ridiculously hot ex.
"They call and text each other," a "source" tells the mag. "They weren't on good terms after their painful breakup, but Brad says they're talking now, and it's throwing him for a loop [writer's note: uh-oh]. It's weird timing, but if anyone can understand what Emily is going through, it's Brad."
And Emily apparently needs all the support she can get now that "reality has set in" and she's questioning her decision.
"Any woman in Emily's shoes would second-guess her choice. She had such strong feelings for at least four of the guys, so of course she has to wonder: Did I pick the right one?" an "insider" spills to Life & Style, with another snitch adding, "If Emily doesn't really know her new fiancÃ©, like she didn't know Brad, then I can see how she must be confused [writer's note: if you actually want to know your fiance, maybe you shouldn't go on this show!]."
That's true that Brad will definitely understand the situation Emily's in. But he's also totally screwed up. He has admitted to having years of intensive therapy to work on his commitment issues (which is a good thing), and during his second stint as The Bachelor, a woman came forward claiming they'd had an eight-year on-and-off relationship, he had proposed to her right before he left to tape the show and he was still contacting her afterward. So if he was that clingy with her, it's possible he could misunderstand Emily's intentions if they're back in touch now -- especially if she really is reconsidering her final decision and eventually ends up breaking up with this guy too (which, considering the show's abysmal success rate in producing actual marriages, is pretty much a given). But hopefully the therapy has helped Brad and he's able to be supportive of Emily now, and they can be on good terms going forward.
What do you think? Is Emily Maynard having second thoughts about her new fiancÃ©? Should she lean on her ex Brad Womack for support? Sound off in the comments!
