Reports are circulating that Emily Maynard, 25, will return to reality TV to try and find love once again.
According to People magazine, the single mom was hesitant to sign on, but "The Bachelorette" is rumored to be relocating production to her hometown of Charlotte, North Carolina. If that were to happen, she could potentially do the show without being away from her daughter.
Maynard has already fallen in love on the ABC franchise, as she won season 15 of "The Bachelor" and was briefly engaged to Brad Womack.
Their relationship came to a standstill last summer, as she explained to host Chris Harrison on an episode of "The Bachelorette" that there were just too many "red flags."
If Maynard is indeed the new "Bachelorette," it also seems she's had a change of heart on her views about finding romance with cameras capturing every kiss, as she previously wasn't so keen on the spotlight.
"Anyone who is on 'The Bachelor' or 'The Bachelorette' should expect that attention," she said. "Once the cameras stopped rolling, you can expect to be followed at the grocery store. I could barely leave my home with the paparazzi following me...I don't want to worry about whether cameramen are in my bushes, or if my private conversations end up in a tabloid."
Maybe it's time for her to start worrying about that again. What do you think - would Maynard make a good "Bachelorette"?
