Bachelorette’s Emily Maynard Talks New Love And Reality TV Regrets

Bachelorette” star Emily Maynard

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.


Speaking to Life & Style at a Shoes and Jewelry party recently, Emily opened up about her love life and reality TV regrets.

Emily's "new" man is actually an "old" man. "I've known him for a long time," she shared. "I met him far before I did the [Bachelorette].  I have been seeing him since January. It's going really, really well." 

When asked if she thinks they'll get married, Emily said, "Maybe one day, but I don't want to jinx anything!" 

Emily went on to say that her reality TV days are behind her. "No, no. My days are over," she declared. "I gave it my best shot." 

When asked if she regrets appearing on the Bachelor and the Bachelorette, Emily answered, "I regret how it turned out, for sure. It makes me sad, but it all worked out in the end. I couldn't be happier. It was all a blessing." 

Huh. After a ten month break from Emily, she seems kind of likable now. In case you're interested,  Emily designs a jewelry line for Towne & Reese and writes a blog with a heavy focus on beauty and fashion.
