Emily Maynard Has Big Night Out — Without 'Bachelor' Brad Womack!

Emily did a girls’ night out in Charlotte. Was she planning the wedding before Brad hopped on a plane to see her this weekend?

Emily Maynard is juggling motherhood and a long-distance relationship but she’s still making time for her friends. A source tells that Emily squeezed in some much needed quality time with girlfriends on March 22 at Good Food on Montford, one of her favorite restaurants in Charlotte, N.C.

“Emily appeared to be having a great time,” our source says. “She was laughing and looked to be really catching up with her girlfriends … Brad wasn’t there.”

Our source adds that Emily was drinking a glass of white wine and eating the restaurants yummy arugula & frisée salad ($6) along with other appetizers for the table.

Brad and Emily’s relationship has been under major scrutiny since admitting they broke up multiple times on The Bachelor finale. But they’ve managed to quash the rumors. They were spotted together in Brad’s hometown of Austin, Texas, and now driving around Charlotte in Emily’s car!  He even took to his Twitter to post a pic — and he called Emily “hot.”

It looks like things are going strong now for these lovebirds despite their recent troubles — we just hope it lasts!
