Brad Womack’s dad “shocked” by comments; Brad’s ex says he proposed last summer

The Bachelor star Brad Womack’s ex-girlfriend is getting herself some attention by telling a tabloid that Brad proposed to her before filming his second season of the show, and stayed in contact with her during it.

Laurel Kagay told Us Weekly, “I’m sure the girl he picked would want to know that he was proposing to another woman right before he started taping the show. I would want to know.” The magazine says he sent her e.mail messages during the show, and she said, “Even when we weren’t together, he would say how much he loved me and was going to marry me.”

Meanwhile, Brad’s dad Steve Womack, who has been blamed by Brad for his commitment issues, told Star “I was shocked when I saw how Brad talks about our relationship. We talk at least once a week and we text message all the time.”
