Bachelorette Emily Maynard: Ricki Didn’t Meet Any of The Guys
Emily Maynard has already said she felt guilty for introducing her daughter Ricki to Brad Womack during her hometown date on The Bachelor. She planned to do things differently on The Bachelorette — but it was never clear if she was going to introduce Ricki to her finalists or just her Chosen One or what.
TV Guide asked Emily what Ricki thought of the guys on her season and Emily responds, “You know, she didn't meet any of them. I kept her very protected throughout all of this, so she just thinks I was going to work. But one day, I'm going to be really proud to tell her about the decisions I made.”
We posted a poll last month, asking Wetpaint readers to weigh in: “Emily should only introduce her daughter to....” — and at this point, the winning answer is still "Her Top 2" with 39 percent of the vote, followed by 21 percent for "Her Chosen One just before they get engaged," then 17 percent for "Her Chosen One right after they get engaged." Since Emily isn’t even confirming that she got engaged at all, she can’t say something like “Ricki met my fiance right after the show,” but it’s probable we’ll hear more about the Ricki situation during the After the Final Rose segment.
Emily also says she learned on The Bachelorette that she’s stronger than she gives herself credit for. “I never thought I'd be able to look at somebody and say, ‘You need to go.’" However, she admits she did second-guess herself during rose ceremonies. “A lot of times! I would go into the cocktail party with my mind made up, then something would happen and I'd change [it].”
