We recently reported that The Bachelor’s Emily Maynard was missing something at her recent tell-all interview with Chris Harrison — Brad Womack. Chris Harrison is now revealing the reason Brad Womack didn’t show up to the interview that airs July 11, is because he isn’t ready to talk about his split with Emily Maynard.
Emily Maynard is going to dish her breakup with Brad Womack on ABC with Chris Harrison on July 11, which will finally give us the closure we’ve all been waiting for — kind of. See, it’s not complete because The Bachelor’s Brad Womack wasn’t there to give us his side of the story in person. At least now we know it’s because he’s not ready to talk about the breakup on national television.
According to Chris Harrison via his Entertainment Weekly blog, “While he gave his blessing for Emily to speak on their behalf, his emotions are still just too raw and he wasn’t ready to speak openly about it all yet,” Harrison wrote in regards to Brad Womack’s decision. Harrison added, “I respect that decision and told him I was extremely sorry we had to do this interview at all.”
We should really be lucky we’re getting anything. Sure, Emily Maynard and Brad Womack opened up to People and kept it as civil as possible, but it looks like Chris Harrison thought his interview airing during The Bachelorette on July 11 would never happen.
Chris Harrison wrote in regards to the interview he, ”Did not expect to do and did not enjoy in the least.” He added, “Both Brad and Emily are friends of mine, and we all really thought the next time we saw them would be to plan their wedding.”
Since the official announcement that Emily Maynard and Brad Womack split, so many different scenarios have been worked up in everyone’s overactive minds: Will Emily Maynard be on the next The Bachelorette? Will Brad Womack head back to The Bachelor and prove the third times a charm?
While we don’t know anything for sure, we do know we get to see Emily Maynard talk with Chris Harrison even if Brad Womack isn’t ready to open up.
What do you think of Brad Womack skipping the ABC interview because he’s not ready to dish his split with Emily Maynard? Sound off in the comments section.
