I suppose that we should never be surprised anymore when a Bachelor contestant has a change of heart. But this one does come as a bit of a shock, given that, since she broke it off with twice-Bachelor Brad Womack after season 15, single mom Emily Maynard said over and over that she'd never want to star on The Bachelorette.
Emily Maynard Will Definitely Be the Next 'Bachelorette,' Says Reality Steve
Now, according to spoiler king Reality Steve, that's exactly what she'll be doing come March, when The Bachelorette season 8 begins filming.Why Emily's change of heart? Steve speculates it probably has something to do with another early spoiler he got his hands on: In order to accommodate Emily's family life (a.k.a. lure her in), ABC has reportedly offered to move the bulk of filming to Emily's hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina.
