Why "Bachelorette" Emily Maynard came back: 'Dating's hard. Why not?'
By Théoden Janes
Emily Maynard’s last relationship failed in the most public, most sensational way possible.
So after calling off her engagement to Brad Womack – whom she met on his season of ABC’s “The Bachelor” in 2010 – the single mom from Charlotte responded last summer to rumors that she might star in the network’s “The Bachelorette” by politely declining.
Her breakup with Womack has lasted; her split with competitive reality dating game shows did not.
“I definitely said I’d never do it, but I was also a girl coming out of a heartbreak,” Maynard, 26, now says, “and the last thing I wanted to think about was going on dates, much less going through all of this again.”
