Another week, another story about Emily Maynard's love life. Why should Brad Womack's ex bother being ABC's Bachelorette when it sounds like she's already doing the job from home? Way to telecommute, girl!

This week Us Weekly wants to put the Doug Cartwright rumors to rest by pairing Emily with Carolina Panthers "tight end" (hey now!) Jeremy Shockey.

"They were set up on a blind date," a friend of Em's told Us Weekly. "They've been out five times. Emily thinks Jeremy is nice, but she's just having fun!"

First of all, what kind of friend speaks to the media on your behalf ... unless it's with your permission? But, if so, why no names? Suspicious. However, the story says a mutual friend on the Panthers staff played matchmaker for the 31-year-old baller and the couple dined at BLT Steak in Charlotte, North Carolina's Ritz-Carlton hotel.

Sounds fun, but not exclusive. So maybe Emily can still date Doug ... and Michael Stagliano and William Holman and everyone else we try to set her up with?
