Brad Womack is still alive! After so much burning curiosity, Brad has surfaced and agreed to share his thoughts on seeing Emily Maynard be “The Bachelorette” of 2012. As “Bachelor” fans know, he and Emily were engaged after they met on his season of the show last year. They broke up after a half-year engagement.
Womack just purchased a new bar in Houston called The Dogwood. He and his brothers accumulate bars and have four successful ones running in Austin. A local station caught up with Brad to see how he’s dealing with knowing Emily is on TV dating 25 men.
“I’ve just politely declined any comment until now,” Brad began. “All I’ll say, she is a hell of a woman. Hope it works out. You know, I’m happy, I hope she’s happy. So maybe we can do an interview after the finale and you can tell me what happens.”
Don’t expect Brad to watch “The Bachelorette” 2012. He claims to have no interest in watching the ex his was madly in love with go finding love with other men. Who can blame him? That might be expecting a bit much!
The Texas bar owner did say this, “Can I say I’m glad? I think I dodged a bullet with the relationship? I just hope it works out with her.”
Brad Womack doesn’t want anyone to think he’s some “cheesy” reality star coming out of “The Bachelor” franchise.
“Some people love the show, some people hate the show so I just want people to know, hey I’m not just this cheesy reality show guy that handed out roses,” he said.
He does give “The Bachelor” a lot of credit for his continuing success as a businessman because he said to the reporter if it wasn’t for him being on TV, he wouldn’t be talking to her or buying another bar in the Midtown area of Houston.
In spite of his single status, Womack hasn’t had time for dating.
“I don’t have time to date and it’s not for lack of trying,” he said. “Um, this is a true story, and it’s almost sad, you know I’ve only been on one date in a year? One date. Is that pathetic?”
It’s hard to believe Brad is single, but a man as busy as himself usually finds it challenging to fit time in for a relationship.
Is it possible Brad is secretly checking out Emily’s season of “The Bachelorette” 2012? Even if he gives it a quick glance, he wouldn’t want to admit it.
“The Bachelorette” 2012 airs at 9:30 p.m., ET/PT Monday nights on ABC.
