Arie Luyendyk’s Pal Thinks He Is A Perfect Match For Emily Maynard

June 14, 2012 11:00 AM by Lisa Princ

We’ve all heard all the dirt on Arie Luyendyk Jr., leaving most of us hoping that Emily Maynard ditches him on The Bachelorette, but Arie’s pal is out to clear the air. In fact, not only does she explain some of the things we have heard, but she also feels that Arie is the perfect match for Emily. Can someone gag me now please? Read on for the scoop!

From all the rumors we have heard all season long on The Bachelorette, Arie Luyendyk appears to be somewhat of a player and a snake, but his best friend recently chatted with Wetpaint in an effort to clear the air. Kristina Owen told the gossip about Arie’s relationship with producer Cassie Lambert: “People assume it was this really intense, long-term relationship – but that’s not the case. The whole thing has been blown way out of proportion. It was in 2003 so Arie was really young. She was an Indiana girl and knew a lot about racing. She drank beer and hung with the boys. But Arie told me it was never a relationship. Like I said, I’ve been one of his best friends for ages and I’ve never even heard her name until now.” Somehow, we find that hard to believe.

Meanwhile, Kristina went on to say that Cassie had absolutely nothing to do with Arie being cast on the show, but instead, it was a complete coincidence. Kristina apparently was trying to get Arie to apply, and then: “The Bachelorette producers (including Cassie) called Arie on a conference call regarding another driver they were considering for the show. They wanted Arie to be a reference. Towards the end of the call, Arie threw something out there. He said, ‘Listen, if you’re still looking for people, I’d love to do it.’ They asked him if he was serious and he said yes. They told him that they had everyone they needed, but they would keep him in mind if a spot opened up.” Okay, still not sure I am believing this story – she is probably just trying to cover up – what do you think?

Whether it’s true or not, Arie’s pal still feels that he is the perfect match for Emily, and she is also certain that he is ready to step into the stepdad role. The question is – does Emily think so? We’ll have to keep watching to find out! What do you think? Who will Emily end up with? Comment and share your thoughts with us below!

    Sorry! I am not buying it, She is a pal do you think she wont cover up for him? Yes she will. I was wondering why Arie got so much airtime compare to the other guys. was the production grooming him to be the next Bachelor? He is good looking, romantic, funny, soft spoken and a great. Kisser He is bankable and the rating would hit the roof if he is chosen to be next Bachelor. The producers wanted the TV audience to fall in love with Arie and it is working already. Or are they are pushing for a love Story? They cast him on the show because of his past connection to one of the head producer who is also the confidant and Personal producer of Emily. They wanted Emily to flip for Arie, He fits the bill and the love story will unfold before our eyes. Every Kissing scene was a closed up . He really worked hard in the romance Dept. Every time he sees her all he wanted was to make out. There was no discussion. He does it to shut Emily up from asking question he was avoiding to answer. Some people thought his were hot and passionate. I didn’t see or feel it coming out of My TV screen. I’ve been Kissed many romantic and passionate kisses that made my knees weak, and my lips turned hot but Arie Kisses gives me the chill and gross me out. it looked liked he was going to eat her face. He like to clear her tonsils. I do he doesn’t do nothing for me. I believe he was doing it for the camera. Instead of putting all his love into it. Eventually the truth will come out(for not telling his dating history with the producer) It may not eliminate him from the show but the trust issue is gone. I do not believe Emily is going to choose him in the end.
