I've got a confession to make. I never believed Jef Holm was genuine. Maybe it was the fact that he was so incredibly over the top when he gushed about Emily Maynard -- like, we get it dude, she's great. But take it down a few notches. It just seemed too good to be true.
And when things went south with these two, everyone fixated on Emily and what she did wrong -- not even realizing that we were putting Jef on this imaginary throne that he totally didn't deserve. Well, it looks like the joke's on us (eh, mostly you guys. Like I said, I knew all along) because Jef has recently made it crystal clear what his true motives are for being with Emily.
And it all started when Emily got an invite to Ashley Hebert & JP Rosenbaum's wedding ...
According to a source, Jef was dying to go to the wedding -- and knew Emily was his only way in. But as we all know, Emily flew solo.
What we didn't know? Jef went to Emily's hotel before the wedding and tried to convince her to bring him. Well hello there, Mr. Desperate -- how are you doing today? It's not like Emily was heading off to some crazy football game, or a cool boxing match -- why on Earth would Jef be "dying" to go? Oh, maybe it was the ABC camera crew and tons of paparazzi? Very interesting.
Unless we're talking about Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson in Wedding Crashers, men don't typical beg to go to weddings. But it definitely raises an eyebrow to find out that Jef was.
Could it be that he was just after fame the entire time? I think so. And I'm sure getting to date a hot girl in the process wasn't so hard, either.
Do you think Jef Holm is genuine?
