Every once in a while, I have to give credit where credit is due when it comes to the reality TV stars I love to hate. I really (really, really) thought Emily Maynard would do everything in her power to remain in the spotlight following her stint as the Bachelorette. Much to my surprise – not so much!
It's been a full year since Emily and Jef Holm ended their engagement – can you believe it? – and nearly ten months since Emily gave Reality Tea anything to snark on. These days, Emily appears to be content spending time with her daughter, Ricki, and a new mystery man, as well as designing and blogging.
You have to love what constitutes a star these days…especially in the eyes of ABC execs when they are casting Dancing with the Stars. You can't really blame them though…whenLindsay Lohan turns down the show, it may be time to call it quits.
As always, rumors are swirling about who may foxtrotting across the ballroom. Some of the names being tossed around are more believable than others, and some would be pure television gold if the gossip proves to be true. Likewise, the speculation is often more exciting than the dancing itself. ABC's Bachelorette darling Emily Maynard's name has been thrown into the mix, as well as Here Comes Honey Boo Boo matriarch June Shannon. How amazing would that be?
Are you ready for some MAJOR dirt from one of the former Bachelorettes? I promise her name doesn't sound like Hey Nerd! Ali Fedotowsky was the franchise's sweetheart, first leaving Jake Pavelkaduring his season and then finding romance (and then heartbreak) with Roberto Martinez. Of course, we already know those deets…we want to hear about what goes on behind the scenes. Ali reveals that she did the hippity dippity on just one of her overnight dates, but she admits it could have happened with more than one guy if one of her favorites hadn't headed back to his girlfriend before her season's end. She also shares that one former Bachelor (try to guess who before clicking below!) used to take girls into the bathroom on group dates to test the merchandise! I think you'll also be shocked to hear who she thinks was the victim of a very bad edit. This is juicy stuff, y'all!
Oh yeah, and then there's Sean Lowe. I jest…it's just that Ali's chat has some great little nuggets! ABC has announced a new twist in the realm of Bachelor specials. Also, Sean dishes why he is choosing abstinence until marriage. I guess that's a little dirt from Sean.
Am I the only one who doesn't think Sean Lowe is going to find true love on this season of the Bachelor? Trick question! Who actually does find love on this show…unless it's with fame? I'm looking at you, Maynard! Of course, we don't watch for the romance or the extremely realistic dating scenarios (who hasn't had a first date that involves a hot air balloon, open mic night at a famous comedy club, followed by swimming with penguins? Amateurs.), we watch for the drama.
This season, drama is named Tierra LiCausi. She's quite the competitor, isn't she? Maybe if these dudes were thinking with their brains instead of, well you know, they wouldn't fall for these crazies, but it happens every single time. Do the names Courtney Robertson and Vienna Girardi ring a bell (although, let's look at who they were each vying for…)?
Our favorite reality TV stars can’t get enough of the spotlight during their regularly scheduled time slots, so they take to Twitter to share even more of their daily lives with us. And we love them for it! Here’s a roundup of some of our favorite photos from the Twitterverse this week! Enjoy!
What could have possibly gone wrong (again) in such a short amount of time? A source close to the Bachelorette star says that Emily feels as if Jef is more interested in fame than her, adding, "Emily put her whole heart into this relationship and is shocked at how much Jef has changed."
"Jef was supposed to come for Christmas, but Emily canceled the plans. She's done with him," the source says. "She wants nothing to do with him anymore. He's tried calling, but she hasn't answered. She was so in love with him, and he crushed her."
