For someone who came into this season of The Bachelorette with a relatively wholesome image (by the standards of this franchise, anyway), Emily Maynard has sure seen her share of snarky publicity in these last few weeks.
The current Us Weekly features a report on the ways she has enhanced her appearance since making the decision to appear on The Bachelor, though since the story begins with the hilariously inaccurate claim that Emily “may seem like a low maintenance single mom,” it might be buyer beware on the rest of it. Us says that the changes in Mama Maynard include dental veneers, breast implants, and a nose job, though they hedge their bets on that last one. All this was done, says Us, with an eye towards getting the attention of Brad Womack, and anyone who remembers his second Bachelor season will recall that there were as many implants in that mansion as you will see in Hugh Hefner’s.
An unnamed source says that Emily had some facial paralysis in her teen years as a result of Bell’s palsy, and became insecure as a result. But one of Brad’s friends is quoted as saying that she looks more “frozen” in the face now than she did even a year ago.
Is any of this very scandalous? The producers might have put Emily on a pedestal on The Bachelor, but they seem to be going to some lengths to make her seem more relatable this current season, what with her kissing multiple men, cursing, and referring to herself as a West Virginia hood rat. And while the veneers and boobs speak for themselves, she’s hardly alone in that regard.
Has any of this gossip changed your opinion about Emily?
