‘The Bachelorette’: Emily Maynard, Jef Holm move past newest rumors

Mrs. Carter: Positivity is the key!

It’s strange in many ways how the tabloids have jumped all over Emily Maynard and Jef Holm more so than many other couples who have been on “The Bachelor” and “Bachelorette” franchises over the past several years; but luckily, they are finding all sort of ways in which to avoid the drama that comes with it.  What’s the latest example of what they have been dealing with? That Emily somehow paid her fiance in order to stay engaged to her for a little while, just so she would not have to deal with the public embarrassment of breaking up with the man she chose so soon after her season was over. Is there really any truth here with this story at all? It doesn’t look it, as a source close to the couple denies the notion of it to E! News:

“Everything is absolutely fine between them. They are a great couple and the wedding is definitely on,” our source tells us. “He has moved to Charlotte and is living in an apartment and they are really making a go of things. They are being sensible about their relationship, there is only so much you can learn about someone over the course of the show, so they are getting to know one another better. They are being smart about everything. He adores Emily, and is very involved in Ricki’s life. They are happy. There are no problems between them.”

So what else are they doing rather than letting the rumors get to them? Let’s just say they are getting out to enjoy life. Jef has been seen spending some time with friends this weekend after attending a film festival in San Diego with Emily last week; meanwhile, Emily posted a photo this weekend of her daughter Ricki dressed up along with this caption:

“How can the @carolinapanthers not win with this girl cheering for them next week?”

It’s possible that Ricki could be the much-needed good luck charm that the Panthers need, as the team was throttled in the last game that Emily herself attended along with Jef.

Are you glad that these two are still finding so many ways to stay busy? Be sure to share some of your thoughts below, and you can check out some more news about this current season over at the link here.
