Bentley Williams

Southern, blonde beauty Emily Maynard will reprise her role as the sweet-natured, single mom looking for love on next season’s The Bachelorette. The twenty-six-year old won her season of the Bachelor and became engaged to two-time loser Brad Womack. The couple who promised to be together forever broke up shortly after filming citing Brad’s temper, along with his commitment issues, and Emily’s difficulty handling what she saw on the show.

Speaking to PEOPLE, Emily discusses her decision to return to television to find a man and admits it’s a little intimidating! “It really hasn’t hit me, what I’ve signed on to do,” she reveals. “I’m scared to death.”

Emily surprised fans when she agreed to do the show, since she initially turned down ABC’s requests. Ashley Hebert was famously cast in her place, much to the dismay of some of the guys. Emily says she she “genuinely” meant it when she told producers she had no interest. “At the time I was dealing with a breakup,” which factored into her decision to decline the opportunity. “I feel like the biggest hypocrite because I said that and now I’m doing it.”

What changed her mind? “I know it can work.” That’s what they all say… “I fell in love the first time and no, we didn’t end up getting married, but in the end just falling in love, for me, is a success,” Emily shares. Well, at least she still believes in finding fame love.

One of the biggest reasons Emily finally agreed to sign onto the show, besides the obvious of wanting to get married, is that ABC agreed to film in her hometown of Charlotte, NC so she can be near her six-year-old daughter, Ricki.

“She’s not going to be involved in a lot of filming and certainly not meeting the guys,” Emily says of Ricki’s participation. “But she’s really excited to go on vacation with Mommy.” Does that mean Emily’s season will include the typical jet-setting adventures? Wow! Good for Emily that she’s not willing to leave her child for two months.

Another reason Emily agreed to participate in the show is her difficulty meeting decent men. “My schedule is very different than a normal single guy’s schedule. I can’t go out every night of the week,” she explains. “They just kind of fizz out before they ever have a chance to become anything. I have to take things slowly because I have a daughter, so that makes it really hard.”

With ABC willing to make so many sacrifices on Emily’s behalf she claims she couldn’t say no! “I would be crazy to pass it up.”

And speaking of guys that were pretty bummed about last season’s Bachelorette, the infamous Bentley Williams may be making a return to vie for the heart of the woman he wanted to woo all along! When asked if she would give Bentley a chance, Emily believes everyone deserves a second (or third) chance! “He would really have to show remorse,” she admits. “But one thing I have learned is to never say never.” How much do you want to be he’ll be back with bells on?

IS EMILY CRAY FOR WANTING TO GIVE BENTLEY A SECOND CHANCE? ARE YOU SURPRISED SHE AGREED TO DO THE SHOW?


ABC is finally making it official!

The network confirmed today that Emily Maynard will indeed star as the next Bachelorette! The confirmation comes just weeks after Bachelor insider Reality Steve first broke the news.

ABC’s press release reads: “Emily Maynard, the beautiful, sweet, young mom who captured America’s and Brad Womack’s heart on the 15th season of ‘The Bachelor’, finally thought she had her happy ending. She accepted Brad’s proposal and was looking forward to walking down the aisle. Unfortunately her relationship with Brad ended, along with her dream of moving to Austin with her daughter, Ricki, and starting a family. But Emily is ready for her luck to change and to bring her the love she so richly deserves.”

Following her break up with Brad Womack last year, the former Bachelor winner had always remained adamant that she did not want to do the show. Her change of heart reportedly came when for the first time in Bachelorette history, ABC decided to have the guys film in her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina, rather than in Los Angeles, in order to remain close to her 6-year-old daughter Ricki.

Meanwhile, the latest issue of Us Weekly magazine is now speculating that the procuders might be planning to bring back Bentley Williams, you know, the douche from Ashley Hebert’s season, to stir up some drama vie for Emily’s love. Yikes.

“Bentley is Emily’s type and she knows the show well enough to expect producers to bring him back,” says an Emily pal. “It would be good for ABC, but she’s not sure how good it would be for her!” Bentley is her type???

Production on Emily’s season is expected to begin filming in March, with her season set to air late spring on ABC.

TELL US – NOW THAT IT’S OFFICIAL, DID ABC MAKE A GOOD CHOICE? WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE BENTLEY RETURN? YOU KNOW, SOLELY FOR DRAMA PURPOSES?

Bachelorette Bentley Williams ex-wife SuzetteThe Bachelorette ABC

A week following his second departure on the Bachelorette, villain Bentley Williams is still the topic of conversation.

In the latest issue of In Touch Weekly magazine, sources as well as Bentley’s ex-wife Suzette Davis are speaking out against him as Bentley is described as being mentally unstable.

A source says Bentley is not putting on an act on the show and that he acted the same way with Suzette. “He acts like he has a split personality,” the source explains. “He’s very unstable.”

Suzette also chimed in adding that Bentley’s odd behavior was to blame for their divorce. “He was extremely inconsistent with me, sending me mixed signals,” Suzette reveals of her two-year marriage to Bentley. “It was very emotionally unhealthy, unsafe and draining.”

Suzette adds that Bentley’s decision to do the ABC show was a surprise to her as they had been working on reconciling. “We’d been divorced for about 18 months, but we’d been spending a lot of time together trying to make up,” remembers Suzette. “I thought he was insane.” Bentley however assured Suzette he was only going on the show to promote his business.

And after seeing the way Bentley treated Ashley Hebert on the show, Suzette reveals it reaffirmed she made the right choice in leaving him. “The way he was on TV just reaffirmed my earlier decision to divorce him,” says Suzette. “He does have a sweet, tender side, but he can turn cruel in a heartbeat.”

“At the end of the day, I feel bad for him,” adds the first source. “He’s so unstable, I don’t even think that Bentley knows who Bentley is.” While it was reported last month that Bentley’s place of business was receiving death threats, he seems to be doing much better these days as he now has a new girlfriend and yes, she’s a blonde.



Bachelorette Ashley

Poor Ashley Hebert…she’s looking for love on the Bachelorette but can’t seem to catch a break. We have watched the train wreck that is Bentley Williams all but derail her quest to find her Prince Charming, and then a report came out stating the man she chose aka her fiance is a womanizer.

So are the remaining suitors as perfect as they seem? On the most recent episode, Ames Brown, the Manhattan financier who seems shy yet smooth, gains flirty points with Ashley for a lame make-out session in an elevator. He is also riding on his sympathy points from two episodes ago when he got a concussion during a round of Thai boxing. I don’t know about you, but I think that had Ames not gone to the hospital, he wouldn’t have been around this week for me to blog about on Reality Tea.

As skeletons of the final guys come running out of their closets, those closest to them are quick to send their warnings to Ashley…all out of the goodness of their hearts and not because they want to see themselves quoted in a tabloid. Case in point, an ex-girlfriend of Ames’ reveals to Life and Style, that while he did graduate from an Ivy League School, he’s hardly the “portfolio manager” his Bachelorette bio proclaims.

The mystery lady says, “Ames never has real jobs. He just gets degrees and travels around.” To that I say, why is that bad? He clearly has the funds to do what he wants, so what if Ashley has to spend a couple years traveling with her over-educated, under-employed world-traveling husband? I mean, besides the fact that he can’t handle a punch and seems slightly awkward in social situations, what’s the problem?

And it doesn’t end there…from the over-educated to the over-excited, people from Ryan Park’s past are coming forward to explain that over-eager solar energy executive from California (who is not well liked among his fellow cast mates, to put it nicely) is only on the show to promote himself. A source reveals, “He broke up with his girlfriend right before he went on the show because he told her he wasn’t ready to get married and didn’t feel like marriage was in his future.” Hmmm…it makes sense to do that before going on a show where you don’t win money or vacations or excessive material things, but instead you are trying to win A SPOUSE.

We’ll all have to wait and see if these accusations have a grain of truth or if some scorned ex-girlfriends are just looking for their fifteen minutes seconds of fame. Regardless, I’ll bet that Bentley is thanking his lucky stars that he won’t be the only one with sketchy motives when the guys are put in Chris Harrison’s hot seat on The Men Tell All.

The show is on hiatus tonight. It returns next week with the all new interview with Emily Maynard.

TELL US – DO YOU BELIEVE SOME OF ASHLEY’S GUYS ARE THERE FOR THE WRONG REASONS?

On last night’s episode of the Bachelorette, Ashley Hebert finally got the closure she had been looking for from douche-bag contestant Bentley Williams.

While in Hong Kong, host Chris Harrison revealed Bentley had returned and wanted to speak with Ashley. While Ashley had been hoping Bentley would return to stay and fight for her love, she got her heart broken a second time when Bentley revealed he was there to end their “relationship.”

The good news? Ashley was surprisingly strong and finally realized Bentley was a d-bag who never cared about her to begin with. “I cannot believe I wasted so much time on Bentley,” said Ashley after her meeting with Bentley. “He’s such a player. He disrespected me to the core and I don’t understand what I did to deserve this. Bentley, if you’re watching this, f–k you, I’m done with you.”

In her latest blog for PEOPLE, Ashley explains why she wasn’t able to see through Bentley’s BS earlier on. An excerpt is below -

“In last night’s episode, I hope you were finally able to see what Bentley was consistently doing in each conversation with me. His ego and competitiveness made him want to “get the girl,” but you know, as well as I do (now), that I was certainly not what he wanted.

But he continually fed me lines like, “I didn’t think I would miss you as much as I did,” and, “Come to Salt Lake City.” It was only at this meeting that I was able to clearly see the way he would try to smooth talk his way into my heart and then attempt to crush it on his way out. Looking back, one would think that I would be fearful that my judgment was not intact. However, I am more fearful of the fact that there are men out there so convincing of untruth.”

Ashley also adds that she’s happy to close the B chapter, for good this time. “You will never have to hear the B–– word again,” promises Ashley.

Meanwhile, Ashley decided to come clean to her guys last night causing one of the men, Ryan “Mickey” McLean, to throw a tantrum and leave the show. “You lied to us,” said an angry Ryan. “I just don’t see what the hell you saw in that guy. I thought we had a lot in common, but if that’s what you’re looking for, send me home. I’m just not interested.” Safe to assume Ryan probably wasn’t interested to begin with and was just looking for an excuse to exit the show.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON ASHLEY’S MEETING WITH BENTLEY? DO YOU THINK SHE HANDLED IT WELL? WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF RYAN QUITTING THE SHOW?

Ashley Hebert

In a new article for Life & Style, the newly engaged and super-svelte Ashley Hebert reveals how she lost 10lbs and got in amazing shape in preparation for her stint wooing a harem of attractive guys on The Bachelorette. So, apparently, Ashley, who weighs like 3 lbs went on a diet so she can weigh -3lbs.

For those of you who don’t remember a time when Ashley was anything but teeny, she apparently was emotionally eating over the heartbreak of being dumped by former Bachelor, Brad Womack on national TV and gained 10lbs as a result: “I was eating everything in sight. When you’re stressed out, you kind of just throw it back,” said Ashley.

Ashley also points the finger at all the fattening, free dinners and copious amounts of booze associated with being a contestant on The Bachelor giving former contestant Chantal O’Brien’s weight gain during the show as an example so she decided to eat healthier as the Bachelorette: “I don’t drink as much, and I don’t eat as many desserts as last time,” she says. “Now it’s fruits, vegetables, salads and chicken — staying healthy.”

In addition to eating right, Ashley is also working out to prepare for her rumored stint on Dancing With The Stars: “I teach dance classes — jazz and hip-hop — so I get a good mix of exercise types.” Maybe we can expect Ashley to release an aerobics video or a weight loss book sometime in the future?

In other Ashley-related news a rumor is circulating that she apparently got a little down and dirty with self-ejected suitor, Bentley Williams before his departure! According to Hollywood Life an insider reveals: “Ashley slept with Bentley before he left the show. That was the reason that she was so devastated.” The insider, Bentley further clarifies: “They kept the fact that they had sex a secret.”

However Ashley’s friends are denying that a secret sexual encounter ever occurred! Former Bachelor contestant Ashley Spivey and past Bachelorette winner Jesse Csincsak say it is impossible for an intimate hook-up of that magnitude to happen: “ It’s not possible,” according to Jesse in an interview with Hollywood Life, “They [the producers] don’t let you alone with anyone until you get down to the final four.” Ashley S. goes onto clarify: “While Ashley was attracted to Bentley at first, I know her, and there is no way she would do something like that with someone she hardly knows.”

No comments from Ashley or ABC have been released about the claim that Ashley may have, allegedly, possibly, perhaps hooked-up with super-villain Bentley, but Ashley is focusing on the positives in her life and as a result of her new body and new fiancé, Ashley declares: “It’s a new, enlightened me. I’m happy. I’m in such a great place right now!”

And on tonight’s new episode of the Bachelorette, Bentley will return for a meeting with Ashley in Hong Kong during which he will dump her for a second time. That airs 8/7c on ABC.

So, what do you think of Ashley’s new body? Do you think Ashley “went all the way” with Bentley?

Bachelorette Bentley Williams ex-wife Suzette

It appears Bentley Williams’ decision to go on the Bachelorette and be a major douchebag while promoting his business is backfiring.

Bentley, who spent most of his time on the show insulting Ashley Hebert behind her back, has been receiving a ton of backlash which has now spread to the business he co-owns.

Alyson Adams, the manager of Airborne Trampoline Arena in Draper, Utah, tells the Hollywood Life blog that the business has lost customers due to Bentley’s actions on the show. In addition to that, they have received screaming voicemail messages and even a few death threats in the days following Bentley’s cruel dumping of Ashley on the ABC show.

“We have received hundreds of emails and phone calls with obscene profanities telling us how they hope our business fails,” Alyson reveals adding that people have also sent “death threat emails.”

Alyson goes on to add that while Bentley “has a partnership” in the business, “he’s very rarely in the actual facility.” She also feels that editing is to blame for Bentley’s villain portrayal. “I definitely think that he is being portrayed inaccurately,” she adds. Uh uh.

Meanwhile, Bentley’s ex-wife Suzette Davis is breaking her silence on her ex-husband. In a recent interview with Access Hollywood, Suzette states she is disappointed.

“I’m so boggled by the whole thing, I don’t even know what to think,” said Suzette who also reveals she “toyed around” with the idea of reconciling with Bentley following their divorce. “The whole thing is just bizarre. It kind of puts a little pit in my stomach and I’ve just kind of tried to move on as much as I can… it’s been disappointing to see the show.”

And when it comes to Ashley, Suzette takes a not so subtle shot at her says she feels sorry for her. “I feel for her, I do. If she really fell for him in the 63 minutes they had together, or whatever it was, then I feel bad,” she said.

Suzette also voices her disappointment in Bentley using their daughter as an excuse to dump Ashley but adds that “he’s a really good father, he’s really involved. They’ve got a really great relationship. He adores her.” Below, more photos of Suzette, Bentley and their daughter Cozette.

As we reported, Bentley will return to the show in an upcoming episode after Ashley begs for his return, and he will end up dumping her… again. He apparently only returned so he could get a free trip to Hong Kong.

If you thought you had seen the last of major d-bag Bentley Williams on The Bachelorette, you thought wrong.

According to reports, Bentley will be back on the show. The reason? Because Ashley Hebert wanted him back and had producers of the show call him everyday for two weeks to beg him to return. Wowzers. “Ashley wanted a second chance with Bentley, so she begged producers to get him on the phone and get him on a plane out to see her,” a Bachelorette insider tells Life & Style. “She couldn’t stop thinking about him after he left her.”

Host Chris Harrison also confirms Bentley does indeed return to the show in a later episode. It gets even worse as Bentley ended up rejecting Ashley again upon his return. A friend states he didn’t have a change of heart and only wanted a free vacation. “He’s never been to Hong Kong,” the friend notes.

And some fans of the ABC show have wondered why Chris and the producers never stepped in to warn Ashley about Bentley, when it came to his comments about her in his interviews (aka Ashley’s an ugly ducking and he’s not attracted to her). Well other than the obvious reason of it brings in ratings, host Chris claims it’s because they didn’t want to interfere with Ashley’s process.

“If you have information about a guy before he even gets out of the limo, that’s beyond a red flag. We gave her the option and said, “You don’t have to meet this guy. We can pull him.” We justify everything by giving Ashley the power. It was her job to say no,” said Chris to PEOPLE. “We don’t step in and say, “That’s the wrong decision.” We never do. She was privy to some of the information. I had many conversations with her about this and so did the producers but she defended him every step of the way. She never heeded any of the warning signs.”

Chris does make a valid point as Ashley was definitely warned beforehand that Bentley was only on the show to promote his business. Chris also goes on to add that perhaps the show would have stepped in had Bentley remained on much longer. Right. “We were only two weeks in and … I don’t know what steps we would have taken if this had gone on any longer or if we would have finally just shown her his interviews,” said Chris.
