Another one bites the dust. Another Bachelor romance, that is. After months of rumors about the precarious state of their relationship, Brad Womack and Emily Maynard, who got engaged last March on the series finale, have called it quits.
“We’re no longer engaged,” Maynard revealed to People, after taping an interview with Bachelor host Chris Harrison that will air on July 11 during an episode of The Bachelorette.
After months of being followed by paparazzi and the target of the media spotlight, Maynard decided to ‘fess up to the status of her relationship with Womack. The protective single mother from Charlotte, N.C. is hopeful it will allow her and her 6-year-old daughter, Ricki, to “move on and get back to normal.”
While Womack chose not to participate in the on-camera interview with Maynard, he did offer his take on things. He told People that “the demise of our relationship was completely my fault.”
Maynard insisted there are still strong feelings between her and her ex-fiancé. “[But] just because we love each other doesn’t mean we’re right for each other,” she conceded.
