You know it’s over when the break up status shows up on Twitter. Emily Maynard and Jef Holm broke up just days ago and aren’t wasting any time making sure the whole social media world knows about it.
Both Jef and Emily removed each other from their profile pics. It’s the kiss of death in modern dating! Jef’s now staring off into nothing, solo and appropriately pensive while Emily replaced Jeff with her daughter, Ricki.
So it’s over but has anyone figured out what went wrong (besides the obvious conclusion that they were never together to begin with)? I think it probably has a lot to do with the fact that The Bachelorette Emily Maynard’s reportedly been hitting it with Oakland Raiders QB Matt Leinart on the sly. And seriously who could say no to a professional football player – especially Emily who loves jocks? Her previous fiance, Ricky Hendrick, was a race car driver. Holm never had a chance!
Or was it the polygamy? Ya, that would have been the deal breaker for me. It turned out Jef might have had some skeletons and some wives in his closet. The tabloids recently reported that Jef’s grandfather had 11 wives and Jef’s dad had about 64 full and half siblings combined. Maybe Emily wasn’t ready for long dresses and braids?
Whatever the reason, the Emily Maynard and Jeff Holm break up does not bode well for reality couples or the Bachelor/Bachelorette’s record. Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson also just called it quits and I actually believed they were a real couple. If they can’t make it then who can? Luckily we still have Trista and Ryan Sutter to always fall back on. Trista rarely famewhores herself out unless she’s getting plastic surgery or something and I don’t think I’ve seen Ryan since their televised wedding. Could (gasp!) staying away from the media help a couple go the distance?
