Even though we all knew a split announcement was probably inevitable, it still was a tiny bit heartbreaking to hear that Bachelorette Emily Maynard and Jef Holm had broken their engagment and gone their separate ways. I mean, they were such a sweet couple and had all the makings of a reality TV romance that was built to stand the test of time (I'm only semi-kidding), but just last week, they went and joined the ranks of all the other failed Bachelor and Bachelorette couples.
But then Jef and Emily were spotted back together again in her hometown of Charlotte over the weekend, and now we're totally confused and hoping this is a sign of a potential reconciliation while at the same time knowing there's probably no chance in hell of them having a change of heart so soon after splitting up.
Seriously -- what exactly is going on with these two?
Their post-relationship meeting definitely seems kind of odd, especially since Emily's daughter, Ricki, was seen with them as well, and Jef sent out a totally cheesy yet very adorable tweet on the same day. He said, "Days like today are what life is all about."
(OMG. He's the cutest.)
Ok, so based on that tweet, it sounds like he was in a pretty positive mood -- so maybe there's a chance that he and Em missed each other too much to stay apart? (Aww!)
Or maybe they were simply getting together for Ricki's sake, in an effort to ease her out of the break up instead of cutting her off from Jef cold turkey. (That can be pretty tough for a little kid.)
And then, there are those who will probably jump to the conclusion that Jef and Emily are staying friendly for publicity's sake so that neither one of them comes off as the bad guy in the tabloids. (But let's hope neither one of them is really that shallow.)
Whatever the reason for their reunion, it definitely has fans interested and wanting to know more. (OMG. How great would it be if they had a change of heart and eloped or something crazy like that?)
Yeah, you're right. I'm probably reading way more into this reunion than what's actually there. (But how great would yet another reality TV wedding be?)
Why do you think Emily and Jef were back together this weekend?
