Emily reveals why she decided to be ‘The Bachelorette.’ Plus, find out how involved Emily’s 6-year-old daughter Ricki will be in filming.
Emily Maynard‘s heart broke when her relationship with her fiance Bachelor Brad Womack came to an end. But now, Emily is getting her own chance to find love as ABC’s next Bachelorette. In a new interview, Emily confesses that’s she’s fearful of starting the journey over again. Will she find love this time around?
“It really hasn’t hit me, what I’ve signed on to do,” Emily tells People.com. “I’m scared to death.”
But while it didn’t work out with Brad, Emily hasn’t given up hope that The Bachelorette will help her find love again. “We didn’t end up getting married, but in the end just falling in love, for me, is a success,” she says.
Emily is hoping that this process will make it easier for her to meet men because, as a single mom, finding time to date is hard. “My schedule is very different than a normal single guy’s schedule — I can’t go out every night of the week,” she explains. “They just kind of fizz out before they never have a chance to become anything. I have to take things slowly because I have a daughter, so that makes it really hard.”
Production will move to Charlotte for the initial stages of filming so that Emily doesn’t have to uproot her 6-year-old daughter Ricki‘s life. But Ricki will be joining mommy during the weeks of international travel for the show.
“She’s not going to be involved in a lot of filming and certainly not meeting the guys,” Emily admits. “But she’s really excited to go on vacation with mommy.”
