As I watched ‘The Bachelor’ finale last night, believe it or not, I actually got teary during Brad Womack’s emotional proposal to single mom Emily Maynard. I thought he made the right choice, even though I loved Chantal also.
But then……………………… the ‘After the Rose’ special burst my happy little teary bubble. It was obvious VERY QUICKLY that the honeymoon was already over. They were awkward, aggressive (on Emily’s part) and looked like they couldn’t WAIT to get off the stage. It was uncomfortable to watch, and very clear that they had fallen out of love (if they ever were in the first place).
Brad has temper problems? Wah? Emily won’t move to Texas? Didn’t they figure this out BEFORE he picked her? And WHO WAS this Emily girl? It’s not the same Emily we saw every Monday during the season of ‘The Bachelor’! This Emily was fiesty, and sharp, and aggressive! She made it pretty obvious, in my opinion, that the Brad Womack off the screen is not the Brad Womack we saw during the season. The couple admitted to already splitting once, but they assured everyone that they were back together, and definitely planned on marrying.
Well, according to Pop Eater, that’s not going to happen.
Moments after Brad Womack proposed to Emily Maynard on last night’s ‘Bachelor’ finale, millions of fans were shocked to learn that the couple have already gone through a breakup, and while Brad told viewers he was ready for marriage, sources tell me the couple has since broken up for good.
“Emily is so insecure, she just isn’t cut out for all the fame and attention her relationship is under,” a show insider tells me. “The six weeks of shooting the show in paradise was easy, away from prying eyes and photographers, but since they both returned to their normal lives things have been a disaster.”
“Emily is not able to forgive Brad for what she considers cheating week-after-week with other girls,” an in-the-know producer tells me. “It’s always hard sending the couple back into reality after they have been living in paradise, but no one in the history of the show has had as hard a time adjusting as Emily.”
Like many fans, my source “would love to say they are going to make it, but they don’t. After we taped the ‘After the Rose,’ it was clear to everyone that this one was not going to work.”
I’m not surprised, but I am sad… it actually seemed half real this time!
