Oh we wanted to believe in Emily Maynard and Jef Holm's relationship. We really did. Over the years we've seen way too many romances go awry between Bachelor and Bachelorette contestants that left us wondering if Trista and Ryan Sutter are the only ones to whom a final rose really means anything. And then came this adorable couple who was headed down the aisle.
That's right, was. According to a new report, Emily and Jef have already called off their engagement. According to Reality Steve, they are: “Done. Over. No longer engaged.”

He says that while it hasn't been reported elsewhere yet, he has sources that have confirmed it.
It just happened a couple days ago. Right now, they are in the process of figuring out how they are going to present the breakup to the media, when they’re gonna release the statement, and who the statement will be released to. Could be tomorrow, could be in a few days, could be next week, could be in two weeks.
Before you cry your eyes out for what was meant to be, remember it is Reality Steve who's reporting this, so at this point it's just speculation. However, he has been known to be right on more than one occasion, and additional reports of Jef partying in California without Emily seem to make his assertions more believable. A cryptic tweet Jef sent out a few days ago adds even more skepticism. He wrote: “What comes easy wont last. What lasts won’t come easy." That doesn't sound good.
As sad as it is though, if it's true, I can't say it would be all that surprising. Like too many of these reality romances we watch bloom before our eyes, theirs too rang at least a little false. If her saying she couldn't go to the bathroom without missing him wasn't a clue that they were perhaps overacting this whole thing, I don't know what was. It's true that their relationship seemed/seems more believable than most we see come out of these shows, but sadly that's not saying an awful lot.
Do you think their engagement is really off? Do you think their romance ever was/is real?
