Former Bachelorette Ashley Hebert may not be harboring any hard feelings toward Ben Flajnik of The Bachelor, but how does she feel now that her competitor Emily Maynard will soon be the new Bachelorette after recently ending her relationship with Brad Womack? Read on to see what Ashley thinks of Emily’s endeavor to find love again on the ABC television show.
Ashley Hebert, who has been keeping busy planning her own wedding to J.P. Rosenbaum, told E! Online her happy thoughts and wise words for her former final rose competitor on The Bachelor, Emily Maynard.
“I was so excited for Emily!” Ashley said. “She really is the sweetest person I’ve ever met, and I was really sad her and Brad didn’t work out because I thought they were a good match.”
Though she has yet to wish Emily well directly—”I’m sure she’s busy with everything that’s going on!”—Ashley had nothing but well wishes for her good friend.
“I know Emily is going into this with really high hopes that she does find her one true love and I really hope that after everything she’s been through, I really hope she finds it.”
What advice does she have for Emily, who may be used to receiving roses rather than distributing them?
“My biggest advice is probably just to go into it open-minded and have a lot of fun with it because when you look back you want to have really fond memories,” she said. “I know for me, when I look back, I see a lot of the negative that happened, so just stay focused on the positive and have fun with it…and hopefully you’ll find someone!”
However, Ashley also acknowledges how tough it is for a Bachelor relationship to last, saying, “I will say, I got lucky. I got really, really lucky. It’s hard, it’s hard for it to work. There are so many other factors that are involved, but it just takes one.”
What do you think of Emily Maynard as the next Bachelorette?
