Emily Maynard Is the Best Pick for the Next 'Bachelorette'

emily maynardIt's almost as if the whole thing was planned. Emily Maynard, the gorgeous blonde with a heart of gold, who recently split from Bachelor Brad Womack, is supposedly in talks with ABC to become the next Bachelorette. I knew it. I suspected it. I couldn't be happier.


A source who spoke to Life and Style magazine said, “It’s basically a done deal. She hasn’t signed the contract yet, but she’s fully on board.” They continued, "Emily is America’s sweetheart. Fans are going to be thrilled! Everyone loved her." Not sure about the "America's sweetheart" part -- isn't that Reese Witherspoon? -- but true that to the rest. 

Even though the show was technically about Brad and his quest to find love, everyone was captivated by Emily the entire time. They wanted to know what was going on with her; where she was living; how her daughter, little Ricki, was handling everything. And when she and Brad broke up, no one faulted her. In fact, they seemed to side with her. I mean, it's hard not to. She's so sweet and her story is heart-breaking. ABC hasn't commented, but let's hope this is true.

I'm going to be honest, I'm not a serious watcher of The Bachelorette. Of course, I catch episodes here and there, but it's never a priority. I'm more of a Bachelor kind of gal. I think because, typically, the women are more entertaining/funny/interesting to watch than the dudes, who are usually just cheese balls. But if Emily is the Bachelorette, hell yes, I'll watch. And I have a feeling so will a large portion of America.

Do you think Emily is a good pick for the next Bachelorette?
