Matt Nordgren, who reportedly dated Emily, tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Emily needs to find a guy who ‘likes her for her and not for being on TV.’
After Emily Maynard split from Bachelor Brad Womack, she was romantically linked to Most Eligible Dallas star Matt Nordgren. Matt tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively that Emily will find love this time around as The Bachelorette.
“I think she’ll be really good, I really do,” Matt told us at the Leadership Foundation event in NYC on Feb. 12. “Emily thought long and hard about does she want to do it again and face the public eye. She has a youngster and so that’s a tough thing right? She did it for the right reasons. I think because of that she’s going to be successful.”
Emily will fall for a guy that isn’t fame obsessed. “One that likes her for her and not for being on TV,” explains Matt. “I think that’s really hard to do when you’re in the spotlight. There’s something different about being on TV. It makes people act weird.”
“Spend some time reflecting on how how the last show went for her,” Matt advises Emily. “She needs to make sure going into it [that] whatever she didn’t like about the first season, try to limit [that] going into the second.”
Emily needs to also look for a father figure for her daughter Ricki, 6. “She needs to eliminate guys that wouldn’t be a good father candidate,” says Matt. “That child, and I know Emily, that’s the most important thing in her life and she needs to be cognizant of that as well as who’s good for her.”
“I just hope that Emily finds somebody who loves her for her,” adds Matt.
