Moments after Brad Womack proposed to Emily Maynard on last night's "Bachelor" finale, millions of fans were shocked to learn that the couple have already gone through a breakup.
But while Brad told viewers he was ready for marriage, sources say the couple has since broken up for good.
"Emily is so insecure, she just isn't cut out for all the fame and attention her relationship is under," a show insider tells PopEater. "The six weeks of shooting the show in paradise was easy, away from prying eyes and photographers, but since they both returned to their normal lives things have been a disaster."
During the finale, Emily, mom to 5-year-old daughter Ricki, accepted Brad's proposal, beating out fellow contestant Chantal O'Brien for Womack's heart. The actual proposal was a tender, romantic moment of television.
"You're so much more to me than a leap of faith," he said. "You're the one. You're my once in a lifetime. I'm asking you to give me your forever."
Later, Emily admitted having trouble watching Brad get intimate with different ladies every Monday night. She also admitted that Brad's temper in real life also took her by surprise. Despite their problems, however, Brad has been trying valiantly to make the relationship work.
"Emily is not able to forgive Brad for what she considers cheating week-after-week with other girls," an in-the-know producer tells PopEater. "It's always hard sending the couple back into reality after they have been living in paradise, but no one in the history of the show has had as hard a time adjusting as Emily."
Like many fans, my source "would love to say they are going to make it, but they don't. After we taped the "After the Rose," it was clear to everyone that this one was not going to work."
Too bad, we were rooting for you.
