After splitting from The Bachelor Brad Womack, Emily Maynard promised she’d never accept the invitation to go back to reality TV as the next Bachelorette. The Southern belle even shot down the rumor tweeting, “I don’t want to be the Bachelorette.”
But the single mom obviously changed her mind. She’s already a few weeks into filming Season Eight as the lead lady! And of course, Maynard’s change of heart has become fodder for the tabloids:
“Emily is making everyone play by her rules. Producer’s are changing everything for her. They’ve even allowed Emily to pick out her own engagement ring. And ABC is also paying her $250,000 to be the Bachelorette.”
Is money and power really the driving force that caused the blonde bombshell’s sudden interest in starring on the hit show? RumorFix reached out to a source extremely close to Maynard who tells us, “None of the reports are true. None of the contestants go on the show for money – only for love.”
We at RumorFix want to believe that, but obviously several contestants have admitted they were on the show for fame. We are hoping Emily is in it for the right reasons.
