Emily thinks that Bentley would have played her too if she had been ‘The Bachelorette’ and not Ashley!
Like the rest of Bachelorette fans, Emily Maynard — the woman that received Bachelor Brad Womack‘s final rose and his proposal — doesn’t trust Bentley Williams after what he did to Ashley Hebert. All the while Bentley was leading Ashley on to believe that he was falling in love, but behind her back was dissing her and claiming that he wished the Bachelorette had been Emily instead. Well Emily doesn’t buy this and thinks that Bentley would do the same thing to her that he did to Ashley had Emily been The Bachelorette!
“To be honest, I’m not totally convinced that if The Bachelorette had been me or anybody else, that he wouldn’t have said, ‘Well I wanted it to be Ashley,'” Emily says in her personal video blog on Warner Bros Bachelor site. “Because he clearly had an agenda for being on the show and it wasn’t to fall in love.”
“If Bentley had really gone home because he missed his daughter, I could totally relate to that,” continues Emily. “Had I not had the feelings that I did, I would have been on the first plane out. But he made it pretty clear that was not his reasoning behind going home.”
But sweet Emily also wants to believe that Bentley has it in him to be a better person. “I also kind of want to give him the benefit of the doubt though, because it’s hard for me to believe that someone could be that hurtful and just so mean spirited,” she explains. “My mom always told me to say what I mean, mean what I say, but don’t say it mean.”
Still, Emily warns: “If I were Bentley, I would certainly be sleeping with one eye open.”
“I really did not want to do a video this week at all,” admits Emily. “It was a hard episode to watch, especially somebody who knows Ashley personally and thinks the absolute world of her. It was hard to see her be so down on herself.”
Now that Bentley is gone, Emily hopes that Ashley can realize that she has some great guys who are on the show for the right reasons. “Her date with Ben looked like a lot of fun — and her date with J.P. was great,” Emily shares. “She looked like she felt really comfortable with him.”
