Ex-Bachelor top pick to be new Bachelorette?

Giving a whole new meaning to keeping it in the family, the ex-fiancée of the latest 'Bachelor' is now said to be in talks to become the next 'Bachelorette.'

Brad Womack, the star of US reality ratings winner 'The Bachelor,' proposed to blonde Southern belle and single mum Emily Maynard in South Africa back in March this year.

However, the once loved-up couple have now called the whole thing off, and Emily, 25, is said to be discussing becoming the next Bachelorette – in which she would choose from 25 men competing for her affections – and her hand in marriage.

According to US magazine, Emily is in 'serious talks' with ABC TV bosses. “She hasn't officially signed on yet, but it looks like a done deal,” a source told the magazine.

However, there are some critics of the rumoured plans, with some fans feeling that she is moving on too soon. “She just wants to be famous,” said a source.

Emily is also said to be keen to move on from Brad. A friend told US magazine, “He has issues, and you could tell from the start that it was never going to work with Emily. She gave it everything she had.”

So far, Emily has kept quiet about the rumours, but has said in the past that being the new Bachelorette would be the 'last thing on my mind.' Watch this space.
