After further research and after my story yesterday, it turns out "The Bachelor," Brad Womack, and his top choice and bride-to-be, Emily Maynard, won't be getting married.  The couple has split and the engagement is off!  According to the PopEater website, a source close to the couple stated that shortly after the debut of the last episode of "The Bachelor" and the filming of "After the Final Rose," the couple has officially split.  "Emily is so insecure, she just isn't cut out for all the fame and attention her relationship is under."  What do you think?  Do you believe that's the main reason because I sure as hell don't.

PopEater's source also mentioned "Emily is not able to forgive Brad for what she considers cheating week-after-week with other girls."  Hello Emily!  What do you think guys (AND girls) do when you're just "dating" someone?  Emily dear, unless you are exclusive with a person (ie: boyfriend/girlfriend, engaged, married) you are allowed to go on dates with other people and explore feelings for those people.  That's why it's called dating!  Unfortunately, not everyone has cameras following them and recording all their dates they go on and the words they say, but that's what you get when you sign-up for a reality television show.  No one forces anyone to go on these shows -- you sign-up for the show youself!

Has this girl ever seen other seasons of "The Bachelor" or "The Bachlorette?"  Brad, who says he knew it would be Emily from the get-go, had to finish out the show like all the other contestants before him.  A contract was probably his first obligations not to mention ratings.  Again, like I said in my story from yesterday, the girl is all about herself.  I don't think she ever honestly cared for Brad.  She is only 24-years old so the (im)maturity level could also be a factor here.  Despite having a daughter back home, it sounds like she has a lot of issues she should have figured out before she considered going on national television and wasting everyone's time.  I'm sure the producers figured out she has a screw loose and is unfit for television.  That's why she isn't going to be the next bachlorette!

On a side note, someone mentioned on Facebook that "Survivor" and "Big Brother" have more success in relationships on their shows than "The Bachelor."  Though I don't know the exact statistics on any of these shows I would have to say if that is the case, it is probably because "The Bachelor" puts the contestants and thee bachelor in fantasy world.  They are basically on vacation the entire time with luxuries & extravagance, not hardships.  In the real world, you have rent/mortgage payments; stress from work; and other unexpected daily occurrences you can't predict, making anyone uneasy and/or tempermental.  This isn't reality tv!  As far as I'm concerned, "The Bachelor" is fantasy tv. 

Any relationship could survive on fantasy tv.  It goes with the saying, if you can't get along with you significant other on vacation and, you are fighting the entire time, it's not going to work.  If you can't enjoy each other in paradise then when WILL you enjoy each other's company.  Why not do a show with a bachelor/bachelorette and contestants, and then see if they can get along and sustain "true feelings" for one another during stressful situations.  I guarantee true colors will be seen a lot faster and it might even make for better tv.  I mean, let's be honest, seeing all these beautiful people on beautiful islands, wearing beautiful clothes and saying beautiful things to each other, is a little far fetched.  What do you think?
