Latest 'Bachelor' couple call off engagement

In a shocking snippet of news, Brad Womack, the star of US reality ratings winner 'The Bachelor,' has split from the woman he chose to propose to.

The popular show - in which a group of 25 ladies compete for his affections - and a wedding ring – saw Brad pop the question to blonde Southern belle and single mum Emily Maynard back in March this year.

He proposed with a Neil Lane diamond during a tear-jerker of a finale set against a stunning South African backdrop. However, the pair have now officially confirmed their split, with Emily doing a solo interview on ABC last week.

“I felt it was a fairy tale living through it, so I want everyone to know it was real,” said Emily. “But it was a fairy tale that turned into a nightmare. It was heartbreaking, I don't know how things took such a turn,” she added.

Emily is now said to be in 'serious talks' with TV bosses to become ABC's new Bachelorette and start dating 25 guys in search of her husband, according to Us Magazine.

“She hasn't officially signed on yet, but it looks like a done deal,” a source told the magazine.
