Will Bachelorette Emily Maynard’s Wedding to Jef Holm Be Televised?
This is why it's a good idea to take rumors with a stroke-inducing amount of salt.
Recently, a source told Radar Online that Bachelorette Emily Maynard wanted to film her entire wedding and "do a spin-off show which would include planning of the wedding. She loves to be in front of the camera and there are multiple offers on the table for her to do other television shows."
Well, they must've been talking about some other Emily Maynard that got engaged to Jef Holm on The Bachelorette, 'cause ABC's girl is not into that idea at all.
"My thoughts on that are pretty clear. I have no interest in ever doing any spin-off show or anything like that," Emily told reporters on Tuesday (via Zap2it). "I have been looking forward to the day when I get to go back to normal and not have to worry about the cameras. And Jef and I can just be two people who fell in love on a show and leave all that behind us ... One thing I've learned is never say never, but I also think a wedding is a private thing. It's one of those things we'd just have to talk about when the time came."
Jef agreed that their wedding should be “a personal and a private matter.” Emily also added that she got to meet Jef's mom on Monday, the night of the live "After the Final Rose" special. "It was a surprise to me, I didn't even know she was going to be there. She was so sweet, amazing. I got to talk to his dad on the phone and he could not be nicer and more down-to-earth." Jef said his family loves Emily and they are looking forward to meeting little Ricki.
By the way, remember that other rumor about Ricki’s grandparents being furious with Emily or going on The Bachelorette? Emily was asked if Jef had met that side of Ricki’s family yet. "The Hendricks are just like my own family," Emily answered. "[T]hey love me just like a daughter. I've been very close with them for a lot of years. They want to meet anybody who makes me happy. This is our first day even allowed out in public and we've been in New York doing media all day. But I'm sure that meeting will happen soon."
And maybe it’s time to retire the rumor that Emily and Chris Harrison are really in love and/or she’s trying to get back together with Brad Womack. But nothing can stop us from believing her real true love is Dolly Parton!
