The Petite Sweetheart ‘Bachelorette’ Emily Maynard is Engaged

Petite celebrity gossip run amuck! With only seven contestants remaining for the latest ‘Bachelorette’, 5’2″ 102lb 26 year old Emily Maynard  of season 8, the rumor mill says that she is actually happily engaged! Free to subscribe to Bella Petite!

Emily currently lives in Morgantown, North Carolina., where she is an event coordinator at the Levine Children’s Hospital in Charlotte.  The 11-story, 234-bed kid-friendly facility — the largest children’s hospital between Atlanta and Washington, D.C. — includes the Ricky Hendrick Centers for Intensive Care, a pediatric intensive-care facility named for Ricky after his father Rick Hendrick and mother Linda Hendrick donated $3 million to the hospital.


We hope the happy ending for Emily is completely true, because she deserves a fairy tale ending to her tragic love story.  Years before the ‘Bachelor’ or ‘Bachelorette’ Emily was engaged to professional Nascar racer Ricky Hendrick, who was tragically lost in a plane crash on October 24, 2004.  Six months earlier they were engaged and their wedding plans were in the works. Within days of his plane crash, Emily found out that she was pregnant with their now-6-year-old daughter Ricki.


On season 15 of the ‘Bachelor’ with Brad Womack Emily stole our hearts  and was an instant fan favorite.  She was above the fray and never participated in the bitchy, scheming antics of the other contestants vying for marital bliss with Womack.

In the finale Womack proposed to Emily with a $90,ooo ring, the most expensive in show history, but unfortunately within months the romance had fizzled.

Brad told People magazine he was to blame for the split. “The demise of our relationship was completely my fault.” Emily, for her part, says Brad “will always be a part of her life, but that the impending move to Brad’s hometown, uplifting Ricki from her childhood home in the process, proves to weighty an endeavor.”

Kalon McMahon


The ‘Bachelorette’ season 8 is off and running!  On this week’s episode Emily in a fury dismissed slimy model-type Kalon McMahon for referring to her daughter Ricki as “baggage,” and  in a London bar she confronted him with all the bachelors present and told him to “get the F**k out!” sending him packing back to the states.

There are seven bachelors remaining and, based on the footage shown, we have predicted who the final three bachelors will be and they are: Arie Luyendyk, Sean Lowe and baby-faced Jef Holm.

It seems that Sean is a great fit, but Arie may have the upper hand as a a racecar driver (like Emily’s deceased fiancee).  Will she choose that familiar path or move in a different direction this time around?

According to Life & Style, Maynard is already engaged with an impressive sized ring and talks of wanting a baby. The magazine reported that Maynard “loves” her new 4-carat ring and looks forward to having children. The magazine also proffered up details on the way the last bachelor standing proposed.  “The proposal, filmed for the final episode, which airs on July 16, took place in the courtyard of the Kura Hulanda resort on the Caribbean island,” Life & Style reported. “The final bachelor was led through a grand sky-blue gate to where Emily stood … the proposal took place in the middle of the night, which gave it a more intimate feel.”

Whatever the outcome, we hope for the best!  Tell us who you think will win Emily’s heart, in comments below.                                Written by: Ann Lauren  Free to subscribe to Bella Petite!
