You did great as usual Emily. Beautiful lady, beautiful smile, and just so sweet. I really agreed with you on the Ryan getting a rose (What?). I’m excitted about the rest of the season also. And look forward to your interview with Chris H. I’m sure you did great answer the questions for inquiring minds. Thank you for all you go through for your fans. And thanks for always being you! Love Ya. Keep smiling
OMG!!! This is unbelievable! Please get FAKE Emily off the vblog. Why should we listen to what she has to say after the way she has treated Brad..and also she lied to her fans. She said she was not allowed to talk to the media even though Chris H said that was not true then she goes to People Mag and sells her story for MONEY!!! This girl cares about nothing but MONEY!!! I’m glad Brad is away from her.
Great blog as usual Emily! Keep up the good work. Oh and Rosy if it bothers u that much there is a very very very simple solution to this, so easy a child could do, are u ready for this? DONT WATCH THE VLOG.
Thanks so much for the vblog today! You always do an awesome job! I can’t imagine how you are feeling right now with everything that is going on in your life but just know that u will always be a role model to all of us mama’s and we care so much about u and sweet Ricki. I do not know you personally but it doesn’t take a genius to see that you are so down to earth and have a HUGE HEART! Many blessing to you and Ricki!
Get this phoney off of here. Who cares what she thinks. She’s another fameho and can’t even handle her own love life let alone discuss Ashley’s season. She can take her fake ‘sweet’ accent and stick it. Brad’s lucky if they broke up.
Emily didn’t get paid for that interview you idiot. She can’t do any media without ABC knowing so you really think she got away with a COVER OF PEOPLE? Give me a break. ANd it sounds like Brad is the one with the issues. She really cant win.
Oh Rosy get a life she isn’t in it for money. I’m sure if your dating life was on TV you wouldnt have been saintlike either. Give the girl a break and let her have her peace. How would you feel if you got your heartbroken and a ton of people asked you everyday if you were still together? It would suck so I’m sure if there was a way for her to get it out sooner she would have. Let it go
So happy to see another blog from you and your insight. You are the “Rocky” of bachelor contestants..and we RESPECT and wholeheartedly ADMIRE you.. You know we support you. Words can not describe how we feel and know that we are forever supporting you. As much as we can fill in the blanks I am sure by now you can fill in our blanks and wishes for you. Hopefully as time goes on you and Brad will be able to find every happiness that you both deserve. sending lots of hugs to you and Ricki….H & ur brews
I have a feeling that ABC is grooming Emily for next B’Ette. Why would she have so much face time on these vlogs? Will she do it? If she does and leaves little Ricki again, I will have lost all respect for her. Wait a minute, I already lost respect for her when she was on ATFR and treated Brad like a child.
Dear Emily, I thought you were the best person thats ever been part of the Bachelor/ette shows and I’ve watched every season since the beginning. You stood out not only because of your beauty but because of how classy you are(something usually in short supply on this show), so sweet and so kind. It was obvious to me that Brad was infatuated with you from the first episode and I am still convinced that yours was the most genuine love story ever shown on TV…yes, that even includes Trista and Ryan. So please bear with some of the people who have their mean comments and opinions; they have no right to say those things but I think most people so badly wanted to hear that you and Brad were going to last and get married that it’s hard to accept a breakup of your engagement. It’s no one’s business but yours and Brads but please know that the people who fell in love with you and Brad and little Ricki far outweigh those who are so rude to give you added grief over your relationship. May God bless and protect all 3 of you and give you peace in your personal lives.
I agree with Anne. I saw the most unbelievable love story unfold between you and Brad and the proposal brought me to tears. I was so happy for both of you and thought for once we have 2 people who are perfect for each other and there will be a happy ending. But for whatever reasons, it hasnt lasted and people are disappointed but that is no excuse for saying hateful comments. You exemplify dignity and classiness and I’ve respected Brad ever since his first season when he refused to propose because he wasnt in love. And he took a “beating” for that as well. I wish each of you the very best, whether together or not. Take care.
@ Lindsay…Let me give you a little advise honey..don’t believe everything Emily says. I don’t believe for a minute that she didn’t get any money from The Bachelor, they all get paid to be on that show. Also, why in the world would ABC set up an interview with People knowing that the magazine was going to come out before the actual footage of the interview between Chris H and her. ABC would NEVER do that because it’s all about ratings…ratings…ratings! Now think about that…
Emily has lied to her fans before so you better think twice before believing anything else.
Obviously she is being groomed for next B’ette since there’s a poll @ people.com asking if we would watch if she were the next B’ette. Unfortunately, that would be a disaster. 1.) She would have trouble fulfilling all of the commitments you have (appearences, charity events…)since she refused to do any of that this go ’round & she can’t even get her vlog uploaded when she’s supposed to 2.) She seems to be inflexible about relocating (I don’t think all eligible bachelors could be limited to Charlotte, NC) and 3.) She’s a mom who should just focus on being a mom.
Emily, I don’t get it! If you love someone wouldn’t you fight for the relationship and try to make it work rather then give up and leave. You say you love Brad well then you should be with him. I’m sorry but I really think that you just want to be in the public eye. You want to be famous, if you didn’t you wouldn’t be on facebook and twitter and doing these vlogs. I think you went on the bachelor for all the wrong reasons and Brad got his second chance and really wanted to find love and got his heart broken by you. Well your the one that has to live with the guilt because you know you weren’t goin to stay with Brad, that was clear on after the final rose show. You treated Brad terribly and embarassed him. You should feel ashamed of yourself!!! I could go on and on but anyways I’m was a fan of yours but not anymore….
I had gut feelings about Emily from day one…she acted very gaurded and pretending to be shy….all the time being. The ultimate phoney….she used the show and totally led brad on..she knew the rules when she agreed to do the show but immediately after being picked started coming up for reasons she. Couldn’t make it with brad..making him look like the bad guy….I think she wants to be the next bachlorette….bring on sneaky snake.thereis an old addage that says “still ea
The people mag article goes to show how immature Emily truly is to let distance you from the man you supposedly love. You were never committed to the relationship in the first place!! Were you ready to be a parent at the age of 19? I seriously doubt it. Nobody is truly ready to be a parent until they are they learn as they go!!! Its not easy coming into a childs life at the age of 6 and you are going to have to support the person that wants to because that is the first step finding someone that loves you enought to want to!!!!!
How dare you say someone is too honest! I guess you wouldn’t know what honesty is if it hit you in your face. Go be a mommie and raise your daughter! That’s what you should do and stay out of the spot light.
Rosy…Emily did not go to People magazine on her own. It was arranged by ABC. Here is a tweet about in which Chris Harrison responded: chrisbharrison Chris Harrison
We set that up RT @JoCinJa61: @chrisbharrison Did ABC set up the interview w/ People Mag.? or did Emily go to People Mag. herself?
I think you need to get your facts straight before you start throwing out accusations.
Emily…I can’t believe you said that Ashley was being too honest. You sure let the cat out of the bag on that one. I truly don’t think you know what honesty is…FIRST you lied to Brad and the producers of the show that you would move to Austin since that was a definite thing the girls had to do if they were picked. SECOND…you lied to Brad when you told him you were in love with him. THIRD…you told your fans that you weren’t allowed to talk to the media about your relationship with Brad when that is a downright lie because Chris H said on twitter that you were under NO contract with ABC to keep quite that it was your decision alone to do that. FOURTH…you said on your facebook page that you would move to Africa if the man you loved was there…well that was a lie too because in the People Mag article you said you still loved Brad..but you didn’t want to move to Austin because you didn’t want to (your exact words) “I didn’t feel it would be a good move to take my daughter away from her life for a guy” OMG…so what you said about still loving Brad is also a lie…that makes the FIFTH so far. I could go on and on but I think I’m running out of room. Well…all in all you are nothing but a FAKE and LIAR!!
@ denette…thanks for clearing that one up for me. But, the thing is there are SO many things that Emily has said that turned out not to be true. I really don’t think she’s as genuine as she makes out to be.
Comment by Bird of Paradise — July 1, 2011 @ 10:30 pm
I have to agree with Rosy on all the lies that Emily has told. Here is a list. FIRST…she lied to Brad all thru the show by leading him on. SECOND…she lied to Brad when she told him she was in love with him when obviously she wasn’t. THIRD…she lied to Brad when she told him she would move to Austin. FOURTH…she wrote on her facebook page that she would move to Africa if that’s where the one she loved was (Well that’s a lie because in her own words from the article she said quote “I didn’t feel it would be a good move to take my daughter away from her life for a guy”) You said in the article that you still loved Brad but you won’t move to Austin to at least try with the relationship…Wow, that tells me you do NOT love Brad. So that’s the FIFTH one. SIXTH…you lied to your fans when you posted on fb that you were not allowed to talk to the media well Chris H said himself that you were not under any contract with ABC and that you chose to be silent on your own. I could go on and on but I think everyone should get the picture by now. Emily has definitely proved that she is nothing but a liar. Btw..if you see this posted twice, I didn’t think it posted the first time.
I just read Emily’s article in People magazine and I had tears in my eyes. She is such a classy young woman and knows what is appropriate to share and what isnt but never has an unkind thing to say about anyone. She is absolutely as beautiful on the inside as on the outside and it set her apart from all the other girls on the show. I saw something so special between Brad and Emily from the first evening and was thrilled they were engaged when the show ended. I’m praying that if they’re meant to be together that it will still work out but if not I wish the best for each of them. It cant be easy to have all that media speculation on you all the time. I also lost my husband at a very young age and had 2 children to raise. it is a lonely and difficult situation but after 10 years on my own i met a wonderful man and am now married again. if you read theses comments Emily, please know you’ve touched more lives then you can imagine and have been an example of dignity and grace under the circumstances. I wish you every happiness you deserve.
Such a crock of crap..her crying at the interviews that she still loves Brad. Sure, so much she couldn’t find time to visit him but one time? Ok, he still loves her, but could only manage l visit to Charlotte. Do these two think we live under a friggin rock? What an insult to average intelligence. It’s all a set up.Brad got redemption, everyone feel sorry for him now. Emily, is the poor southern bell still grieving for Ricky and now will never forget Brad. Come on, she’s going to be the next bachelorette. Poor Em, sweet Em ~ how about USER Em???
Why did Emily cling to her fake relationship for so long ? What did she have to gain from it ? She lied to her fans all along. Brad and her never were an item.
She tries to sugarcoat her story. Brad chose to hide instead of lying. He made the right choice. Ashley, stick to your honesty, it’s the right path.
Emily never intended to be with Brad, why did she get engaged ? To get exposure !
Omgosh! You people need to get real. She is such a sweet girl and a great mom. How dare you all attack her like you know her personally! Pathedic. I think it is so funny how worked up you negative nancys get about her and her life. Telling her to ‘get out of the spotlight’ I’m pretty sure if the opp. presented itself you would eat up all the spotlight your little heart could handle. Grow up. Stop watching if its so upsetting to your little minds.
For those of you complaining, did you REALLY read the People article on Emily and Brad’s breakup? Brad said so himself that he had been the one to suggest the breakups but she fought for him, until finally one day when HE suggested they break up, she gave in seeing how difficult it was to keep up the relationship. Why do you all persistently accuse her of not being committed to him and using him for fame?? Trust me, if she wanted to be on TV, I’m sure it wouldn’t be difficult; like the rest of the previous bach/ette couples, getting a TV/mag interview is not difficult. Don’t you think that she would have accepted the interviews like the previous couples? Seriously that is just the lowest thing to do to speak ill of someone you don’t know personally but only make assumptions about based on what you’ve read in TABLOID magazines. Learn some manners people!
Honesty is the best policy! You can never be too honest! I still say,Brad and Ashley would have made the best couple ever! But, beings it didn’t turn out that way i am aiming for Ben or JP!
That would be awesome if Brad showed up on the Bachelorette!! I really believe in my heart that Ashley wasn’t quite over Brad before the show started! I wish that would make an appearance but, that would be too good to be true! Wishful thinking lol! Good luck to Ashley!
How can anyone know for sure how “immature she is.” Isn’t it all relative? Billions of different people in the world with various natures & there is no real scale, (only imagined) to determine how immature she is. Everyone handles their relationships differently and how much they disclose and make public is a reflection of their uniqueness.
How can we feel justified about her and Brad’s relationship status…when we will be hearing only one side of the story?! Which will probably be a lie anyways. Either that or she’s there to trash Brad and blame the breakup on him when she never intended to move or marry him in the first place.
You are the sweetest! I hope you do not take what these mean people are saying to heart. How could you people be so cruel? I just do not understand it at all. Hang in there, Emily. You are a beautiful person inside and out.
Emily, Hit a jackpot when she got pregrant with Ricki’s baby. Thats why she does not work. She has a purse that she brought a year after Ricki’s death that she paid $1,500 hundreds for. I guess she was sad so she needed to buy a purse with her dead boyfriends money. I don’t believe they were ever engaged!!! Emily lied she told Brad she was falling in love with him on the show. But I saw on the net that she said she prayed everyday to God to help her fall in love with Brad. So I don’t think she even needs to say anything about telling the truth because I don’t think she knows what the truth is. Because she lied to Brad about falling in love with him! She try to push him away the last time she saw him and he she was not smart enought to catch it. My husband and I both did. She was being a total b—h to him!
Hello boys and girls,
Emily and Brad ARE NOT the first bachelor couple to “NOT MAKE IT.” If you all, are going to bash them for not staying together, you have a whole lot of bashing to do. So, lets get everyones name that ever got engaged through that show and let’s let em’ have it! Come on line up! If you all are not going to bash everyone that has a failed relationship through the bachelor/bachelorette show than you people are all just a bunch of loud mouth, yellow bellied HIPPOCRATES! Put yourselves in the same category as Casey Anthony. Trying to destroy an innocent, harmless person for no reason other than you think you can get away with it. You make me sick!
@ Priscilla….LOL…I think you need to go back and re-read some of these posts again. Most of the people here are all posting WHY they don’t care for Emily…it has nothing to do with Brad and Emily breaking up. They’re are a lot of people that don’t like her as a person…do you want to know why? Well..I’ll tell you. First she is definitely a hyprocrite (oh, at least I know how to spell it, unlike you. lol) She said she wanted privacy but she has twitter and facebook and posts all kinds of pics of her daughter. She has told so many lies it’s unreal, just read Wendy’s post she has a list of them. Emily has proved to everyone that she is no role model to young girls…getting pregnant as a teenager when she was NOT married, then lived with her boyfriend. Now she just lives off of his parents money (the Hendricks)
So let me tell you…we are NOT the one that’s the hyprocrite around here…it’s Emily! We just tell it like it is…unlike Emily!
You never saw any bashing on the other bachelors/bachelorettes because there was NO reason to.
Frankly Emily is so fake it’s unreal. I will not watch the Bachelorette if she is it next season. She wants all this privacy and from what I have seen she is in the public eye as much and whenever she can be. So why lie about it to all of us and act like you want all your privacy? That’s totally 2-faced. I feel very sorry for any man that you choose if your the next Bachelorette and I’m sure you will choose a wealthy bachelor. That is what you have shown us so far. I really like Brad and I’m sure he isn’t perfect by no means but he has worked so hard on changing his life and I do believe he was on the show for the right reason. Unfortunately he chose Emily who was not on the show in MY OPINION for the right reasons. She loved the limelight on the racetrack and continues to love the limelight. It’s ok if this is what she wants, but at least be honest about it instead of saying you want and value your privacy. Aha!!! Right! What really gets me is that Emily fell apart when she watched the show cause Brad had relationships with the other woman…what is she thinking?
I don’t understand the pure hatered toward this girl. She was asked by the producers of the show to do the vblogs and she is doing just that. If you don’t want to watch her then don’t. There are many other vblogs or blogs on this website chose another one.
Also in regards to the way she her life is set up right now it is between her and her family. No one has the right to criticize them for all wanting what is best for her daughter. That is what families should be about.
Unless you walk a mile in her shoes you have know idea what her life is actually like. Start looking in the mirror and work on your self before you go after someone you don’t even know.
@Eve, @Stacy,@Angela Jean and @Rosy You 4 have been very judgmental on someone you don’t even know! You are truly hateful people, I guess it makes you feel better sitting behind your computer basting Emily on her life and the way she lives it. Let me ask you guys something, do you like when people judge you on your sorry sad life? I’m sure your answer would be NO. For the comment about being lucky to have gotten pregnant, is so uncalled for, I think she would give anything to have Ricky back to be a father to Little Ricki. Why is everyone so obsessed about the money issue? She is not living off the Hendrick family, that is where your information is incorrect. She’s not 2 faced, she a strong woman who knows what she wants, and who will always put her daughter’s needs 1st, which there is nothing wrong with that. I believe that Brad made a few mistakes and well as Emily, there not perfect and have never said they were. I think living under a micro-scope will put pressure on any situation, and with your negative comments don’t help either. The relationship was ended by to adults, with NO blame, and they have continued to remain friends. Emily was never in it for the limelight, we haven’t seen her since The bachelor ended, she stayed home in CLT, being a mom, which BTW is a real full time job! Leave the girl Alone…
Are they really deleting comments here? Talk about 2-faced, ABC. Will definitely complain about this on twitter and my blogs – and yes, I use my real name there.
As far as Emily, I’m sorry, I just don’t respect her. From what I have read, she wasn’t engaged to the driver, so that’s a big lie. More than that, she’s not educated, although the family apparently has enough money so she could go to school, as well as be a mother.
Last, I never heard her say anything interesting. Just platitudes and flirting, which in her case means smiling and nodding. A season of seeing her do that with 25 guys = torture.
@ HM..I’m going to HAVE to take up for Eve, Stacy, Angela Jean, and Rosy right now and post in their behalf just in case they don’t see your post. I have been watching The Bachelor and The Bachelorette for yrs and this is the very first time I have seen comments like the ones posted about Emily…I mean NEVER. I believe that there is a very good reason why so many people feel the same way about her.
Don’t get me wrong I was a big fan at the very beginning because of her sad story but it all began to change after the real Emily came out..unlike the person we saw on the show. I am really sorry to say but this girl should have NEVER gone on this show…her intentions were just not right. I’m usually a very good judge of character and it didn’t take me long to figure the real Emily out. Also, I need to make a comment about what you said about her not living off the Hendricks. There have been alot of people here commenting that she IS living off of them…well this is MY OPINION only but I have to agree with the majority here that she would have to be…that just takes a little common sense to know that she DOES NOT work but then she lives in a big beautiful house that has to come with quite a few bills along with it.
HM..you really shouldn’t judge these people either that post their opinions about Emily. As much as it’s hard to read I have to agree with almost 100% of what they’re saying.
Emily SAYS she doesn’t want the ‘papparzzi’ jumping from behind bushes, or having what she tells a friend to end up on the ‘news’, HOWEVER she is considering going BACK ON the TV show???????????? Puh-leeeeeze give us ALL a break! Fame monger or what?
No wonder the tabloids keep spitting out such garbage when many, especially many of you making comments on this blog, obviously buy and/or read their publications and then believe every word written. American journalism at one time set trends in excellence and quality; however, with today’s market flooded with so many examples of “yellow” journalism, it has sunk to new lows. In fact, to describe some of these magazines as journalism is insulting to the news professionals who actually try to maintain high standards of ethics. Also, how in the world could you even pretend to know or understand what Emily or Brad or Ashley has experienced, felt or believed in his/her heart when all you have seen is a much edited version of a television show that is clearly designed to entertain gullible audiences into thinking that what they are seeing is the whole truth! On the other hand, this is America and each person clearly possesses the right to state his/her opinion even when that opinion is based on obvious fallacies and prejudices. However, one more caution: there is no absolute freedom of speech in this country. Each printed word carries with it the responsibility of truthfulness, accuracy, and a lack of intentional harm to another’s reputation. Do your words pass this test?
I think you are all pond scum for being so mean to Emily. If you know every intimate detail between Brad and Emily and their relationship together, THEN AND ONLY THEN is your negative opinion credible in the very least of terms. And since all of you were in fact not a part of their relationship, back the hell off and leave her alone. Relationships fail all of the time and you have absolutely no right in the world to judge her for it. And how DARE you talk about her being a poor mother. You have no right to do that either, especially when she was forced to mother on her own. She is a wonderful and genuine woman so leave her alone and quit being rude, ignorant and awful people.
