When Emily Maynard was the Bachelorette, she refused to stay with any of her final three suitors in the overnight "fantasy suite" because she thought that would send the wrong message to her young daughter, Ricki. But she apparently doesn't have a problem with sexting!
According to Us Weekly (via HollywoodLife.com), fiancÃ© Jef Holm checked Emily's cell phone (hello, invasion of privacy!) on Sunday and discovered "sexual texts and photos to an unidentified man" -- and the two got into a "huge blow-out"!
"There were texts and pictures: 'Let's do this and that with each other,'" a "source" tells the mag.
Jef, Emily and Ricki were visiting his family in South Carolina at the time, and Jef and Emily ended up in a "major screaming fight" in front of everyone.
"Jef and Emily went into a bedroom and were yelling. He said, 'You've been f---ing cheating on me for months. ... Pack your s--- and get the f--- out.' ... Emily was crying and saying, 'Please don't do this in front of Ricki.' Ricki was terrified," Us Weekly's snitch says.
It must really burn that Jef used the same line on Emily -- "get the f--- out" -- that she used on Kalon McMahon after he referred to Ricki as "baggage."
At any rate, after arguing for two hours, Jef demanded that Emily leave, so at 1 a.m. she took off with a sleeping Ricki. The next day, Jef drove to Charlotte, N.C., to "talk things out" with Emily. There's no word on where things between them stand now, but HollywoodLife.com points out that the two have been tweeting about each other non-stop for the past few days, so "they must have patched things up pretty fast -- or they're just putting on a show."
It's difficult to imagine Emily texting naked pics of herself to someone since she's so concerned about being a positive role model for Ricki. But she has admitted that she and her former fiancÃ©, hottie Bachelor Brad Womack, used to get into "knock-down, drag-out fights," so getting into a two-hour screaming argument with Jef wouldn't be out of character for her. And Us Weekly did break the Kristen Stewart cheating story, so given the mag's recent track record, this report can't be totally dismissed as typical tabloid BS. But Us Weekly also has it out for Emily for some reason and has frequently reported that she's a bitchy, fame-hungry diva. Either way, it's hard to care about whether Emily cheated on Jef and whether they stay together or break up, because even though they both seem like fairly nice people, they most likely were never going to get married -- they'll probably end up being another failed Bachelor/ette relationship. But hopefully, if they do break up, producers don't bring Jef back to be the Bachelor. That would be the most boring season ever!
