Break up? What break up? Following a report last week that the two were broken up, it appears the Bachelor star Brad Womack and his fiance Emily Maynard are still going strong!

In fact, Emily spent most of last week in Texas with Brad, during which the above photo was taken. Photos of the couple were posted on twitter days ago by one of Brad’s friends who wrote, “Wow! I guess you can’t trust tabloids after all.”

The friend posted four photos of the couple, and on Thursday morning, Emily, 25, was photographed arriving back at Charlotte-Douglas Airport in North Carolina alone but still wearing her engagement ring. That pic is below.

In a new interview with Usweekly, Brad, 38, gushed about Emily, making it clear he is still very happy with her. “I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my whole life,” Womack told UsWeekly on Thursday at Dizzy Rooster, his Austin bar. “I’m serious. I’m so happy.”

“I just put Emily on a plane 3 hours ago,” he added. “She’s awesome. She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me.” he raved.

When asked if he thinks the relationship will work out, Brad answered “Yes!” He added, “I swear to God, I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. Honestly, I’m the luckiest guy.” Definitely not protesting too much. More photos of Brad and Emily below.

As for Brad’s runner up Chantal O’Brien, she’s also doing great with her new love Jeff Razore, a Seattle native and marketing consultant. “I think because of my [Bachelor] experience, it’s allowed me to be where I am now and be in a relationship,” Chantal told PEOPLE. Reality Steve also reported that ABC wanted Chantal to be the next Bachelorette, but she turned it down due to her new relationship. No pressure there Jeff! A photo of Jeff is below.

Following weeks of drama both on and off the show, it all ends tonight as Brad Womack will pick and propose to one of his final two women on the Bachelor.

The two lucky ladies are Chantal O’Brien, 28, – the sassy divorcee who slapped Brad on the first night, and Emily Maynard, 24, – the single mother of one.

“When you know [you're in love], you just know. And I just knew,” Brad, 38, told UsWeekly of his final pick. “I’m grateful to have a second chance…I can promise you there is a very happy ending.” The latest issue of UsWeekly also sheds some light on the proposal details, revealing that Brad ended up proposing to his final pick a total of 4 times! Apparently, “the crew wanted different camera angles,” explained an onlooker.

Meanwhile, Bachelor insider Reality Steve posted a surprising report yesterday, revealing that there is already some trouble in paradise for Brad and his final pick. In fact, the two have reportedly broken up and gotten back together once since the show stopped filming months ago.

According to RS, Brad and his “fiance” make that shocking revelation on tonight’s After The Final Rose on ABC. RS also reveals that unlike the previous Bachelor(ette) couples who appear very lovey-dovey on the ATFR tapings, Brad and his final pick appeared very tense on stage. Wowzers.

And finally, the new Bachelorette will officially be announced tonight on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. According to reports, that job went to Ashley Hebert because Brad’s runner up turned it down. The reason? She is already in a new relationship.

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!

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.

TELL US – THOUGHTS ON CHANTAL CHEATING & BRAD’S DENIAL? PLUS ON TONIGHT’S NEW EPISODE?

Eliminated Bachelor contestant Ashley Spivey is now speaking out on who is best for Brad Womack while also defending fellow contestant Emily in a new interview.

“In watching the show now, I still feel the same way I did when I left and I think Ashley [Hebert] and Emily [Maynard] have the strongest connection with Brad,” Ashley, 26, told reporters.

As for the comments Emily Maynard, 24, has received from some of the contestants on the show plus some fans who believe she might not be ready to move on yet following the tragic death of her fiance in 2004, Ashley states she sees things differently. “I don’t think people give her enough credit,” says Ashley. “She is very strong and if everyone would quit talking about [her past] long enough, they would see that she’s ready to move on and she’s ready to start a new chapter in her life.”

Moving on to Chantal O’Brien, who is rumored to be a final four contestant on the show, as the February 7 issue of Life & Style magazine questions if Chantal is still in love with her ex.

That ex would be Jason Vena, her ex-husband and former lead singer of the band Acceptance. High school sweethearts Chantal and Jason were married from 2005 to 2009, and the mag reveals Chantal still hoped to get back together with him just weeks before she left to film The Bachelor.

According to Life & Style, Chantal and Jason divorced after 10 years together, largely because Chantal felt the romance had gone stale. However, she almost immediately started to regret the split. “She knew she’d made a mistake,” says an insider.

And even though Jason had moved on and found love with a woman named Tawny Ingwaldson (Jason and Tawny are recently engaged), Chantal desperately tried to get him to reconcile with her. “Right before she left to film the show, she told Jason she wouldn’t go on The Bachelor if he took her back,” the insider reveals. “Chantal begged and pleaded and cried. Jason was in a lot of pain over it, but at the end of the day he said no.”

Following Jason’s rejection, Chantal then made the choice to go film The Bachelor and open herself up to the possibility of finding love again. Photos of Jason Vena below including one with his fiance Tawny.

And finally, it seems controversy does indeed sell as last week’s very controversial episode of the Bachelor (the Emily Nascar date) proved to be a ratings hit for ABC. The episode brought in 9.5 million viewers for the network, making it the most watched episode of the season.

A new episode of the Bachelor airs tonight at 8/7c.

Two days following the lackluster premiere episode of The Bachelor season 15 featuring Brad Womack, it seems a new controversy is brewing.

The “controversy” involves the slap heard around the world. While Brad was meeting his 30 bachelorettes, one of the ladies, Chantal O’Brien, decided to give him what appeared to be a playful slap on behalf of all the scorned women in America. Chantal was referring Brad’s actions during his previous season of the Bachelor during which he dumped both of his final two picks.

TMZ is now raising the question of whether or not Chantal should be prosecuted for the slap. “If Amber Portwood gets prosecuted for beating on her boyfriend, what’s the difference?” asks TMZ.

Brad however tells the blog he sees no issue with Chantal’s actions. “I think what Chantal did was a light-hearted gesture which I took as such. I do not condone violence in any relationship, nor would I keep someone around who I felt truly wished to do me harm,” said Brad.

Famed attorney Gloria Allred also agrees with Brad as she tells TMZ Chantal should not be prosecuted as the slap was an isolated instance with no significant injuries.

According to a TMZ poll, 67% polled believe the slap was innocent with the other 33% thinking it was criminal. Interesting.

In other more relevant Bachelor news, Reality Steve has done it again! The blogger/thorn to the Bachelor producers has once again posted spoilers for this season. Not only does RS reveal the final four, but he also reveals Brad’s final pick.

We were conflicted on posting this as it was released a few weeks ago but at the end of the day, it’s your choice as a reader to read the spoilers if you choose. Plus it’s been posted on some major blogs with no warning by the way. So, if you want to read them, please click the continue reading button below. Warning – the comments section of this post might also include some spoilers.
