Emily Maynard is looking for love on TV – again!
Maynard, whose rocky engagement to Womack ended last summer, was reluctant to appear on The Bachelorette because she didn’t want to be away from her young daughter Ricki. But, a source says, the show is moving production to their hometown, Charlotte, N.C., to accommodate, Maynard, 25.
And who’s hoping to be one of Maynard’s suitors?
Bentley Williams, who famously burned Ashley Hebert on her season of The Bachelorette by wooing her while admitting to cameras that he had hoped Maynard would be the one handing out roses, is interested in competing, according to show sources.
ABC had no comment on the casting news.
