Emily Maynard Blogs: 'Bachelorette' Ashley Hebert Too Honest With Other Guys About Bentley Williams!

Fri, July 1, 2011 10:00am EST by 9 Comments

In her personal video blog, Emily seems to feel that Ashley may have scared off the other guys by confessing her feelings for Bentley!

Bachelorette Ashley Hebert confessed to the other contestants about her feelings for Bentley Williams after she got the closure she needed from him during the June 27 episode in Hong Kong. But Ashley’s honesty backfired, causing the guys to grow upset and disappointed with her — to the point where Ryan “Mickey “McLean left. And now, Ashley’s former Bachelor cast-mate and friend Emily Maynard thinks that Ashley’s truthfulness was a bit too much!

“Unfortunately the guys at the cocktail party did not take so well to the news about Bentley,” Emily says in her personal video blog on Warner Bros Bachelor site. “I can’t say I blame them either. I definitely think Ashley’s heart was in the right place, just maybe she was a little too honest with how much she liked Bentley.”

Ashley maybe shouldn’t have relayed every detail about Bentley to the other guys. “That goes to show how open she is and she doesn’t want to keep any secrets from the guys,” explains Emily. “Just maybe she was a little bit too honest.”

But Emily is still happy that Ashley finally got to confront Bentley. “It started with Ashley finally, finally, finally getting the answers that she needed from Bentley,” she shares. “While it may not have been the answers that she wanted, I think that she finally realized that as much as he says that she’s not the one for him, that he is definitely not the one for her.”

“She’s made a mistake by not giving the other guys a fair chance,” adds Emily.

However once Ashley said goodbye to Bentley for good, her spirits clearly lifted. “It really showed going into her date with Lucas [Daniels],” notes Emily. “It really looked like she had a lot of fun and just a huge weight was lifted off of her shoulders. She made an effort to get to know him. Even though I’m not really seeing them together, I think that she had a good time. It was a great transition for her off of such an awful conversation with Bentley.”

And rumored winner J.P. Rosenbaum acted as Ashley’s knight in shining armor once again. “The date with J.P. was so sweet,” gushes Emily. “It just goes to show how much she likes him. She felt so comfortable, comfortable enough to confide in him about her conversation with Bentley. He took what could have been a really awful conversation and made it not so awful. It showed a lot of maturity on his part.”

“I’m excited to see how their relationship turns out for sure,” says Emily. “I think he’s definitely a front runner!”

BFFs — do you agree with Emily that Ashley was too honest with the other guys about Bentley.

Who is Emily to give advice to anyone? There are plenty of things she should or should not have done. Her opinions are best kept to herself as it results in negative response.

Adrienne, Emily said she wasn’t interested in becoming the next Bachelorette. With all the publicity on her split with Brad it’s not a good move. If she does become the Bachelorette and picks someone, what if that person doesn’t move to Charlotte or he asks her moves to his home state or do what Ali and Roberto did…move to a new city? Will she get cold feet? As for having more “women of God,” This is a DATING show. In the meantime best wishes to Ashley. Never mind if your were too honest. Better the guys knew than not at all.

Emily are you kidding me? You are saying this? She is doing this because she wants to avoid what Brad did to you. When JP or whoever she picks sees the show it will sting a little less. Seriously can’t believe she said this crap.

She needs to understand that Ashley needed to be honest with the other guys b/c it’s like Ashley said she felt guilty for having feelings for the guys when she still had Bentley at the back of her mind. I mean eventually the guys will end up finding out whether she tells them or not. I mean it’s on tv. The guys are honest and she’s the type that feels that the truth is what begins the trust.

I don’t understand people supporting dishonesty. I believe it was the right thing to do,telling the guys how strongly she felt for Bentley and why.However, I will admit she didn’t present it well.

I don’t know if Emily will read this but it was better that Ashley told the other guys. If they had found out right after the show, they would be royally pissed. At least most of them calmed down.

Does Emily have a job or anything else to do besides endlessly blog about Bachelorette?
