Emily and Jef from 'The Bachelorette' end engagement




Shock of all shocks, it seems another Bacheloette-betrothed couple has called it a day. Emily Maynard and Jef Holm have ended their engagement, and they announced it the old-fashioned way -- with dueling statements to People magazine. Emily's 7-year-old daughter Ricki, you're better off this way.

"I am sorry to tell you that Jef and I have, indeed, parted ways," Maynard wrote. "It was a very difficult and heartbreaking decision. ... I have nothing but respect and love for Jef and his family, but ultimately we are just at different points in our lives."

Similarly, Holm wrote, "Meeting Emily on The Bachelorette was an incredible experience, we've had quite the journey. I've never loved someone so much in my whole life, Emily is the best person and mom I have ever met. ... What we shared was completely genuine and real and it breaks my heart but we have decided to break up."

Surprise, surprise, a couple who got engaged after dating on a reality show realized it wasn't going to work. The Bachelor's Ben Flajnik and Courtney Robertson decided the same thing not too long ago. If only there were a TV show where people who meet on TV shows could go to discuss how their relationship would only work if the kept working on a TV show!
