‘The Bachelorette’: The latest saga of Emily Maynard and Jef Holm

Emily MaynardMrs. Carter: To quote the great sage Ron Burgundy, this escalated quickly.

Remember how Emily Maynard and Jef Holm broke up a few months after “The Bachelorette” wrapped up taping? Well, it seemed as though everyone was ready to move on and just try to forget that any conflict between these two happened … but somehow without the watchful eye of tabloids earlier this month, the couple reportedly tried to give this another go. As multiple websites are reporting, the two reality stars were spotted out getting rather close to each other in North Carolina earlier this month, and the fact that they were holding hands was a clear suggestion that the two were actually going to give their short relationship another go over some feelings that were apparently still there for both of them.

However, there are now claims that the two are once again done, and that a quote from Jef on his Twitter is some sort of evidence:

“Honesty is an expensive gift, don’t expect it from cheap people.”

First things first, anyone who takes that quote as evidence is absolutely insnae. There’s no evidence that Jef is talking about Emily here at all, and while most indications are that they have split yet again, they may have never been fully back together to begin with. We also have a hard time buying the rumors that Emily dumped Jef again because he is fame-hungry, mostly because we have yet to see one shred of evidence over the past few months that he is desperate to stay in the spotlight (and promoting his water company does not really count). The only time he has even remotely appeared on TV was when he and his pal (and Emily’s runner-up from this past season) Arie Luyendyk Jr. attended a taping of “Dancing with the Stars” together to cheer on Arie’s IndyCar pal Helio Castroneves.

Now that all of this is seemingly over and done again, why don’t we just start looking forward to Sean Lowe’s season of “The Bachelor”? After all, there is a girl on the show who has an obsession with “50 Shades of Grey,” and you know that this is going to be a little bit crazy.
