It was a tearful return to "The Bachelor" mansion for Emily Maynard when host Chris Harrison sat down with the heartbroken hopeless romantic.
No thorough explanation was given as to why Emily's engagement to Brad Womack was called off. She did mention that "red flags would come up" and she didn't have "reassurance" he'd want to be with her till death do them part. "When I get married, I want it to be forever," she expressed.
Unlike the ugly split between Jake Pavelka and Vienna Girardi, this breakup has not turned into a war of words. The one-time blissfully in love couple are still in communication with one another via phone calls and text messages. "I'll always be in love with Brad," Emily proclaimed through tears. "No one will ever hear me say a bad word about him, nor will I ever tolerate anyone else saying anything bad about him."
Now that Emily has gone on the record, she hopes the paparazzi hounding will simmer down so she can "focus on being a mom and not having to worry if someone is in the bushes taking pictures."
Chris gave the disclaimer that although Brad did not partake in the interview, he gave his "blessing" for Emily to discuss their status. To see if Ashley Hebert finds everlasting love on "The Bachelorette," tune in for the hometown date episode next Monday on ABC.
