Finally, the ABC network is getting ready to confirm the worst kept secret ever, which is thatBrad Womack and Emily Maynard have indeed broken up.
Following the airing of the Bachelor finale months ago, the couple had been plagued with break up rumors. However multiple media outlets reported the two ended things for good weeks ago.
Unfortunately for Brad, 38, and Emily, 25, they hadn’t been able to confirm the break-up publicly due to their ABC contracts that reportedly prohibits them from talking about it. That is now all about to change as Bachelor insider Reality Steve just broke the news that Emily is currently in Los Angeles getting ready to film a special with ABC to discuss the break-up.
RS adds that Brad will not be a part of the interview a la Jake & Vienna, because he declined to take part in it. The interview will take place in a closed set with host Chris Harrison during which Emily will talk about her and Brad’s relationship, revealing they have been broken up for a while now, and that she was the one who ended it with him.
Emily’s interview will air on July 11th during the last 10-15 minutes of the “Bachelorette” episode. In comparison, Jake and Vienna’s interview lasted close to 45 minutes.

Emily, 25, is finally breaking her silence as Life & Style magazine is reporting the former Bachelor winner told a reporter it was Brad, 38, who did the final dumping over the phone.
Emily spoke to the reporter on June 1 and confirmed that things are definitely over between her and Brad. “There’s nothing going on between us anymore,” she sadly admitted. “It’s over. He called me and broke up with me. That’s it — he ended the relationship.”
The duo were last seen together at the beginning of May in Texas in what appeared to be a final effort to save their relationship. “The last time we were together was when we said goodbye at the airport in Austin,” Emily confessed. “That was the last time I saw him.”
It appears Emily is speaking out to quiet down the rumors that she dumped Brad, was never in love with him, and only used him to try to become the next Bachelorette. As for the reason the former couple has yet to put out an official statement regarding the split, it might have to do with their contracts with the ABC network.
