Ouch. I know he's "moved on" and he's embarking on a second quest for love as The Bachelor, but was it really necessary for Sean Lowe to take one last jab at Emily Maynard?
Oh, yes he did, ladies and gentlemen. He did it in a very subtle, classy, totally Sean Lowe-esque way, of course, but any way you look at it, what he said about her on Access Hollywood Live had to sting just a little bit.
Sean simply said, "She's a beautiful girl and I think the world of Emily, but she's not for me."
Did you hear that? "She's not for me."
Yeah. That's what every girl wants to hear. Let's face it, Sean may have said, "She's not for me" -- but I don't think I'm the only one who heard something more along the lines of, "I don't want her" or "She's not good enough for me."
More from The Stir: Sean Lowe Didn't Sign Up for This Kind of Crazy
He could've just as easily said, "She and I aren't meant to be together" or left out the end part altogether and just said, "She's a beautiful girl and I think the world of her."
But no -- he had to go and ruin a perfectly sincere statement with the "She's not for me" bit.
And his subtle jab didn't stop there, because he also said, "In the moment I really felt [love for her] ... but, I don't want a girl who doesn't want me. I've moved on."
Hmm. Again with the "I deserve better" underlying theme. Geez. Has he really moved on? Call me crazy, but it sounds like he's still harboring some bitterness or something. If Sean was really over Emily, you'd think he'd leave any sort of negativity out of his comments all together.
It will be pretty interesting to see how Sean's season of The Bachelor plays out, especially considering how broken up he was when Emily sent him packing. And when it comes to the question of whether he's truly moved on from the gorgeous blond who broke his heart -- I guess we'll just have to wait and see if he winds up getting down on one knee during the final rose ceremony.
Do you think Sean is over Emily?
