Emily Maynard has had it tough this season with her suitors. Some of her guys have had major attitude problems rattling the skeletons in their closets. And Emily certainly doesn’t catch a break tonight, as this is when the news of Arie Luyendyck Jr.’s affair with a ‘Bachelorette’ producer.
Emily has to still be coming to terms with the awful things Kalon McMahon said about her ‘baggage’ a.k.a. daughter Ricki. But tonight on ‘The Bachelorette’ there’s another bombshell in store for her.
Tonight we will see Emily and her suitors in Prague.
Host Chris Harrison explains that this is where Emily Maynard will learn that race car driver Arie Luyendyk, Jr., had dated show producer Cassie Lambert in 2003.
Calling Luyendyk and Lambert’s relationship ‘brief,’ Harrison then shows footage of Maynard calling herself an ‘idiot’ for not seeing through him.
‘If he’s OK with hiding that he even knows you – much less dated you – and we’ve been hanging out for so long, what else is he hiding?’ He’s a good actor!’ Emily ranted at Lambert.
As the producer tries to play down the seriousness of the relationship, Emily tells her
‘It wouldn’t have been weird if someone said on day one “We know each other” I wouldn’t even care, but now I feel like an idiot. I know something about Arie that he’s not telling me.’
The televised conversation is relatively calm but show insiders say Emily was ‘livid’ at the time. She took her anger out on Luyendyk.
‘She cut him right then and there. Her ego was shot.’
Except if our spoilers are true, she didn’t cut him from the show. The gossip seems to be that he made the final three. .
