Emily Maynard’s choices over signing on to be “The Bachelorette” 2012 has caused a strained relationship between her and Ricki’s grandparents. The 26-year-old single mom allegedly “got difficult” after her break up with Brad Womack. When she became the star of “The Bachelorette,” an insider said she became a bit of a diva and the choice she made to be on the show has upset her daughter’s grandparents, according to a source who spoke with Us Weekly.
The insider revealed about Ricki’s grandparents, “When Emily went on The Bachelor, they weren’t pleased, but they supported her. Now they’re not speaking. They don’t want their grandchild in the spotlight. They are private people.”
A big reason for the disagreement was the fact they didn’t want Ricki “uprooted,” the source claimed.
“They also wanted Ricki kept out of the spotlight, not exploited,” the insider said.
“She is painted in this Mother Teresa light,” the insider continued. “She is a nice girl, but she isn’t as good as she’s made out to be.”
