Emily Maynard may never escape the rumor mill, but at least she’s not just seething from the sidelines anymore. Now The Bachelor Season 15 winner jumps in to stop the churning herself — and she seems to have a sense of humor about it. The latest scuttlebutt, courtesy of Hollywood Life, said Em was not only dating David Smith, son of billionaire Speedway Motorsports owner Bruton Smith, but that he might be “The One.”

Well, Emily pumped the breaks on that rumor via Twitter, DM-ing Wetpaint with this note:

@RickisMommy: Hey! Just fyi not true! My family has been close to DS family forever! Still looking for The One so if you know of any funny/cute guys.. :)

Well since ya mentioned it, Em...we noticed you’ve been Twitter flirting with Bachelorette Season 7 suitor, William Holman. Sure, he didn’t leave the best impression, but since his Bachelor Pad 2 turn, he’s certainly won us over. (See here for 5 awesome reasons why.) Plus, Ohio isn’t that far away from North Carolina, so why not give him a try? Rumor has it he wanted Emily to be his Bachelorette anyway. (Too soon?)
