In his second turn at being 'The Bachelor,' Brad Womack has claimed over and over that he's a new man, that he's gone through years of therapy and that he's really ready to settle down.
According to Life & Style magazine, he may have been on the verge of doing just that -- before he signed on again for 'The Bachelor' (Mondays at 8PM ET on ABC).
We got an exclusive preview of the magazine's upcoming issue, which features an interview with Bettina Bell, a contestant who made the final 3 on Womack's first 'Bachelor' season. Bell said that she gave him a second chance last year ... only to get dumped again when he started filming the current season.
"He was pursuing me like crazy, and then out of nowhere he went MIA," she told Life & Style.
