Bachelorette Maynard: Maynard’s New ‘Bachelorette’
Bachelorette Maynard: Maynard’s New ‘Bachelorette’, The new season of ABC’s “The Bachelorette” will premiere Monday, May 14, and Southern beauty Emily Maynard is ready to find love.
Emily Maynard first became a primetime sensation when she appeared on Season 16 of ABC’s ‘The Bachelor.” Maynard, a stunning 26-year-old from North Carolina, stole America’s heart when she discussed her sorrowful past on “The Bachelor.” Maynard revealed that her high school sweetheart, racecar driver Ricky Hendrick, died in a tragic plane crash in 2004 just days before she found out she was pregnant with their daughter. Maynard gave birth to Josephine Riddick “Ricki” Hendrick on June 29, 2005.
But the love between Maynard and Womack did not last. The couple broke up after Maynard accepted Womack’s proposal and a $50,000 Neil Lane diamond engagement ring.
“Watching it back, he had a tendency to say the same thing to a couple of girls,” Emily said last June when explaining why she would not marry Womack. “So I felt less and less special.”
“There was no huge blow-up fight. It was two adults having the maturity to step away and realize that just because we love each other doesn’t mean we’re right for each other.”
Now Emily Maynard has another shot at love with her new season of “The Bachelorette” and 25 eager male suitors vying for her affection.
“I’ve been in love twice, and I lost it twice,” Emily told Life & Style magazine. “Coming back to be ‘The Bachelorette’ is a huge risk. But to meet the person that I’m supposed to spend the rest of my life with, I think it’s totally worth it.” (International Business Times)
