HollywoodLife.com spoke with Ashley’s sister — and she told us Ashley’s over the drama! She wants a down-to-earth dude who doesn’t have a shady past!

Ashley Hebert was heartbroken when Bachelor Brad Womack sent her home and proposed to Emily Maynard instead. But now that she’s ABC’s next Bachelorette, Ashley’s ready for a new shot at love! Her older sister Chrystie Hebert-Corns tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively what Ashley is looking for in a husband!

“She likes guys with Boston accents and tattoos,” Ashley laughs. But on a more serious level, “Ashley is looking for someone who is extremely down to earth and someone who is looking to have a good time. She’s not looking for someone who is dramatic, volatile or that has a shady past.”

Chrystie advises the men who are currently competing for Ashley:  “The best way to win her heart is to be down to earth and super fun.” And Ashley does not like a smoker!

She’s serious about finding love now that she’s almost done with dental school at the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. “She’s been in school for eight years and she just wants to start her adult life — finding someone and settling down,” explains Chrystie.

But Ashley won’t get married right after the show.” I think she’s going to finish school. That will be her number-one priority — getting out of there,” says Chrystie. “Only then will she begin to start a life together with whoever she met.”

Ashley will graduate in May but will not get her diploma until she finishes her hours working in a clinic.

And once Ashley does settle down, it likely will be a few years before she starts having kids. “She will probably want to start her career and enjoy her husband for a couple of years,” says Chrystie. But, “she will make a great mom because she is a confident, smart woman.”

So in the end, Ashley’s family thinks it’s good that Brad said goodbye to her. “It worked out great for her and we are glad he didn’t pretend with Ashley,” says Chrystie. “He followed his heart and we can’t argue with that.”

“Now Ashley’s in the driver’s seat so it’s so much better,” adds Ashley. “It’s the best-case scenario actually.”
