Bachelorette Emily Maynard Nixes Ideas for Spin-Off Show, Already Planning Wedding to Jef Holm
Big time Emily Maynard and Jef Holm fans, soak 'em in while you can, because these two Bachelorette stars have absolutely no plans for spin-off show.
"My thoughts on that are pretty clear. I have no interest in ever doing any spin-off show or anything like that. I don’t know how that got started, but it’s certainly not true," she told reporters. "I am looking forward to the day that I get to go back to normal and not have to worry about cameras or anything like that, and Jef and I can be, you know, two people who fell in love on a show and left that behind us."
Emily also nixes rumors about a broadcasting career, and while she won't 100% confirm or deny a televised wedding, the Charlotte native seems more interested in having a down-to-earth celebration than something splashy.
Emily says, "it's not about the wedding or the flowers... it's more abut the person I love and family."
"I’m not a huge wedding type of girl," she continues. "I’d be happy with just a backyard low-key casual wedding… everybody wears jeans, whatever. I don’t even care."
Meanwhile, Jef has begun looking for apartments in Charlotte and is planning a big August move so he can be there when Emily's daughter, Ricki, starts school on August 22.
"It’s a big transition for me, but I’m fortunate enough that I can work from anywhere and I’ll be making frequent trips back to Salt Lake too to work and see friends and family and I’ll bring Emily and Ricki with me," Jef, the entrepreneur, said.
Speaking of Ricki, does Emily plan to make some popcorn and watch the Bachelorette season with her one day? To maybe let her know how Mom and Dad met?
"[That] won’t go down until she is way older, like 30 maybe," Emily said with a laugh. "I don’t expect perfection from her so I think it would be good for her to see me make mistakes and fall and pick myself back up and keep on trying."
