Bachelor

The Bachelor finalist Emily Maynard graces the latest cover of In Touch magazine under the heading “Tricked By Emily’s Lies” as the mag goes on to trash the Bachelor contestant.

According to In Touch, Emily, 24, may not be the person she portrays herself to be. One of the sources of this story is Cori Kurek, who was briefly engaged to the dead NASCAR driver Ricky Hendrick before Emily. In fact, Cori tells In Touch she thinks that Emily and Ricky were never actually engaged.

“After Ricky died and she found out she was pregnant, Emily wanted to have lunch with me, because she didn’t know him that well,” shares Cori, who was engaged to Ricky from 2002 to 2003. Cori gave back Ricky’s ring . “I’m amazed at the details Emily excludes about her background,” says Cori of Emily’s portrayal on the show.

Cori claims that after Ricky died in 2004 and his family became aware of Emily’s pregnancy (she found out a week after his death), Ricky’s family decided to give Emily Cori’s engagement ring to spare themselves the embarrassment that she had become pregnant out of wedlock, and to make it appear that wedding plans were on the horizon at the time of Ricky’s sudden death.

“They took Ricky’s ex-fiancée’s ring and put it on Emily’s finger,” another source explains, adding that Emily was seen wearing the $100,000 sparkler in the delivery room. “I think it was a staged, fake engagement.”

While Emily has described Ricky as her childhood sweetheart, Cori insists, “Ricky and I were together for a very long time and as far as I know, there was never any Emily in his life.”

And when it comes to that whole Nascar date with Brad on the show, another source alleges it was all an act. The reason? Apparently since Ricky’s death, Emily has dated several other NASCAR drivers — and would hang out at the track every Saturday.

“Everybody knows Emily was spending almost every Saturday at the racetrack,” one insider says. “It’s not an emotional place for her. I don’t get it.” It has been reported that Emily briefly dated Nascar star Dale Earnhardt Jr back in 2006.

As for Cori’s claims that Emily did not know Ricky well, the Twirlit website disputes that as there are numerous photos of the two together at different points in time. Some of those are posted below.

And then there were two!

Brad Womack narrowed down his Bachelor contestants to his final two yesterday after eliminating Ashley Hebert — the rumored next Bachelorette according to Bachelor insider Reality Steve.  ABC will reportedly be making the official announcement within the next 2 weeks.

Ashley’s elimination was not a shocker considering how awry her one on one date went.  Brad’s dates with Chantal O’Brien and Emily Maynard however went much smoother, and in his latest blog for PEOPLE, Brad tries to explain what really happens on these overnight dates.  Excerpts are below -

“I’m told that the majority of you that are watching find this particular week the most interesting because this is the week of the fantasy overnight dates. I’ll be the first to admit, as a fan of the show before I was on it, I would always tune in and wonder what exactly happens on those overnight dates. Will the couple really stay the night together? Are they really free from cameras or is there a crew on standby, waiting to capture the next groundbreaking moment? Well I, of course, found out the answer to my questions. Yes, we (the couple) are completely alone and camera free. Yes, we stay in the same room together overnight. What happens is completely up to the couple.

I’d like to explain why overnight dates are so important and what I used those nights away from the cameras for. I wanted to take the opportunity with all three of the women to talk, off camera, so we could all feel even more comfortable. By this time, I had gotten to know the women so very well and I wanted to feel confident in the fact that, after talking with each of them all night, I knew exactly what type of woman each of them is. I wanted to be confident that I actually knew these women as well as I thought I did. The overnight dates actually gave me quite a bit of clarity – clarity that I had been looking for!”

Airing next week is the Women Tell All episode and in two weeks, Brad will make his final pick!

TELL US – WHICH OF THE FINAL TWO LADIES SHOULD BRAD PICK? CHANTAL OR EMILY?

Brad Womack left many fans puzzled on The Bachelor last week when he refused to kiss one of his final 4 contestants, Emily Maynard.

Brad eventually kissed Emily after she heavily persuaded him to. In his latest blog for PEOPLE magazine, Brad attempts to explain his side -

“One last thing … I want to explain why I didn’t kiss Emily while sitting on her couch. It’s no secret that I’m brand new to a lot of this. I’ve never dated a woman with a daughter before so I don’t know proper etiquette in that situation. All I know is this, I wanted to kiss Emily every second I was around her, but my very first concern was showing her daughter respect (as well as Emily). I realize it makes me look like a weird and awkward guy around Emily, but that’s anything but the case. Again, my first concern was her daughter.”

Michelle Money

On every season of The Bachelor, there seems to be a resident crazy pants contestant, you know, the one who seems overly attached to the bachelor, is very catty with other contestants, and is all around overly aggressive.

Well, Michelle Money, a 30 year-old Salt Lake City hairstylist, won that role this season as she found herself the villain of the show. In a new interview with PEOPLE, Michelle, who is also an actress in real life, blames editing for her bad image and reveals she actually did talk to Brad following her elimination. Excerpts from Michelle’s interview below -

Do you regret doing the show?
I have no regrets, no hard feelings. My experience was nothing but positive. I just wish those great experiences had been shown. And at the end of the day, I know what my experience was, what really happened and the friendships I made.

What about the caught-on-camera mean remarks?
I have a very sarcastic, dry sense of humor. That can come off as very intense. When you just get a small, chopped-up version of me being sarcastic, it comes across the wrong way.

And what about the aggressive behavior with Brad?
When I left, I felt really great about who I was and the choices I made. I felt Brad got a clear idea of who I am … I went on the show to find love so I took advantage of every opportunity to have time to see if he was someone I’d want in my future. Because if he wasn’t, I wanted to go home to my daughter.

Why not talk to him on the way to the limo or once you were inside?
Brad and I did have a personal, positive conversation that gave me closure and helped me feel confident in his decision. They didn’t show it. I had a lot to say in the limo as well … Me laying down was a result of being car sick from talking to the camera while driving down a bumpy road with lights in my face. I was going to throw up.

Are you worried about how you were portrayed and how it will affect your future dating prospects?
Once you meet me face to face and have a conversation, it’s very clear that I’m not a villain. I’m not worried about dating. I’ve just had a hard time finding people to date in Utah. Being a single mom, it’s hard to get out and travel and meet men. I’m hopeful. I want to get married and have more kids. I want to be in a committed, healthy relationship with somebody who is confident, can make me laugh and can be a great example to my daughter.

A new episode of the Bachelor airs tonight, in which Brad Womack travels to meet the families of his final four picks. Brad will also get to meet Emily Maynard’s daughter. The episode airs at 8/7c on ABC.

TELL US – WHAT ARE YOUR THOUGHTS ON MICHELLE’S INTERVIEW & TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Former Bachelor contestant Melissa Rycroft and her husband, insurance agent Tye Strickland, welcomed a bouncing baby girl on Wednesday afternoon.

According to PEOPLE magazine, Ava Grace Strickland was born in Dallas, weighing in at 6 lbs., 13 oz. Ava Grace is the first child for the couple, who tied the knot back in December 2009 in Mexico.

“Our lives have changed so much in the last two years and today we’ve been blessed with the best change ever, our beautiful baby girl,” Melissa, 27, said in a statement.

Melissa, who was famously dumped by Jason Mesnick following their engagement on The Bachelor, dated Tye on and off for two years, before rekindling their romance in 2009, and getting engaged just four months after her breakup with Jason. Congrats to Melissa & Tye!

Following weeks of criticism and fans asking what the heck is he thinking? The Bachelor’s Brad Womack finally eliminated contestant Michelle Money, aka the show’s resident crazy pants.

Brad however defends Michelle in his new blog for PEOPLE magazine today, stating her “craziness” was “light-hearted.” Excerpts from Brad’s blog below -

“Yes, it was time to say goodbye to Michelle. Some of you may be sighing in relief; some may think she was around too long; some may think saying goodbye was a mistake. I’m going to defend Michelle once more … For everyone out there that is criticizing her, please try to see the humor in her antics. Here’s a woman that, yes, may be opinionated, but also doesn’t take herself too seriously and makes light of many situations. My decision to say goodbye to Michelle had absolutely nothing to do with her light-hearted craziness. It was simply a matter of not having feelings that warranted trying to begin a future with her. Michelle will be sorely missed.”

There are rumors that Michelle, who is an aspiring actress in real life, was just playing up her character for the show, but we’ll let you be the judge of that.

Meanwhile, the latest issue of Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition came out today, featuring some sexy images of three of the contestants on the show. Michelle, Chantal O’Brien, and Ashley Hebert all posed with Brad on last night’s show for the magazine. Oddly enough, Michelle was the only one who kept her top on while Chantal and Ashley went topless for some shots.

Days after UsWeekly published a cover story detailing Brad Womack’s proposal to his ex-girlfriend just weeks before filming The Bachelor, it seems one of Brad’s contestants is next in the scandal hot seat.

According to a recent press release by Star Magazine, via Starcasm, contestant and rumored front runner Chantal O’Brien cheated on her first husband Jason Vena with a cop, and that infidelity is what led to her divorce.

“Star can exclusively reveal that Chantal’s marriage crumbled because she had a torrid affair with a cop! “They met at a grocery store,” says an insider. And where was her husband? “He was on vacation with her dad!” the insider reveals. She soon filed for divorce and moved in with the policeman. “Her family really disapproved, and ultimately they broke up,” adds the insider.”

The latest issue of Star magazine did not publish the story so it is safe to assume the next issue will have the story along with more details. It’s gets even more interesting as Bachelor insider Reality Steve confirmed the story is indeed true.

In fact, Reality Steve doesn’t just confirm the story but also questions Chantal’s sincerity in doing the show. “Her marriage ended because she cheated, was finalized in Dec. of 2009, then wanted her ex husband back all the way up til leaving for the show in Sept. of 2010, and now four weeks into filming she’s telling Brad she loves him? Please. This chick is strictly out to win a competition and for attention. I don’t buy any of it, and ultimately, I don’t think Brad will either. Then again, these two might be two peas in a pod and deserve each other. Who knows?”

Meanwhile, Brad took to the Lopez Tonight show late last week, during which he vehemently denied proposing to his ex-girlfriend Laurel Kagay.

“It is what it is. No, sir, I can 100 percent tell you I did not actually ask this woman to marry me….100 percent,” said Brad to George Lopez. “I’ve saved that for a very special woman. And if that [a proposal] happened…I’ve always saved that for a very special woman,” he added.

Laurel’s text messages to UsWeekly seem to prove otherwise while sources close to the situation tell E! News Laurel’s claims are “all true.”

And finally, an all new episode of the Bachelor airs tonight on ABC, in which Brad will be seen doing a sexy photo shoot for Sports Illustrated swimsuit edition with three of his remaining six contestants.

Those lucky ladies are Chantal, Ashley Herbert and Michelle Money, and SI has released two photos below from the shoot. The ladies along with Brad will actually appear in the SI 2011 swimsuit issue which goes on sale tomorrow Feb. 15.
