Emily Maynard, Brad Womack break up; Brad blames himself
The Bachelor 15 couple Brad Womack and Emily Maynard have officially confirmed their unsurprising break-up; their relationship seemed close to ending during the finale and has been the subject of media speculation for months.
Emily confirmed that to People magazine after filming her interview with Chris Harrison about the break-up for a special that will air at the end of the July 11 episode of The Bachelorette (the show is repeating this week’s episode on Monday, July 4).
Brad didn’t join the TV interview, but told People in a brief statement that “the demise of our relationship was completely my fault.” Emily said, “We’re no longer engaged” but “just because we love each other doesn’t mean we’re right for each other.”
In April, tabloid reports suggested that ABC was prohibiting Emily from discussing the end of their relationship, and now that the network is capitalizing on it, that makes some sense.
