With the Bachelorette premiering in less than a week, everyone (that may be a stretch), including me, is wondering what to expect from mild-mannered single mom Emily Maynard. She infamously turned down being the Bachelorette (much to Bentley Williams’ chagrin) after first being approached, explaining she wanted to live out of the limelight with young daughter Ricki. However, the rose veteran and former “winner” of Brad Womack’s (second) season, has since done a one-eighty, agreeing to let twenty-five
cheesy eligible bachelors vie for her hand in marriage on the show’s eighth season.
Realitytvworld.com has the skinny on her latest print interview in the upcoming PEOPLE magazine. Emily talks of finding love, little Ricki, and those ever-present hot tub scenes the ABC franchise loves to exploit.
The newest Bachelorette tells the magazine, “I don’t want to be kissing every guy. I want to still be a lady. I’m a mom first,” adding, “I’m hoping the hot tubs have been completely phased out.”
Emily also doesn’t want date time to ever interfere with daughter time. While Ricki has been traveling with mom throughout the season, she has spent a lot of time hanging out with her grandparents and a nanny, and, according to Emily, loving every minute of it. Emily reveals, “[The show] has been so good at making sure there’s time scheduled for the two of us.”
