Emily Maynard makes 'Bachelor' Brad Womack a bachelor once again

May 25, 2011 |  2:00 pm

'Bachelor' breakup: Brack Womack and Emily Maynard "The Bachelor's" Brad Womack and fiancee Emily Maynard have called it quits, with recent photos of Maynard's bare ring finger tipping off the breakup.  

Womack, 38, who had appeared on a previous season and infamously picked neither finalist in the finale, proposed to the 25-year-old single mom in November 2010. The two have (clearly) hit rough patches since. 

Maynard initiated the breakup because the long-distance relationship wasn't working and she had no plans to leave Charlotte, N.C., with her 5-year-old daughter to move to Womack's native Austin, Texas, Us Weekly reported. The report says the heartbroken bachelor repeatedly drunk-dialed her.

The onetime rose-vying Maynard was out and about in Charlotte last week, sans ring, which is said to have been returned to ABC. The network that airs "The Bachelor" had sprung for the stunner, not Womack, who owns a bar (with a handy phone, we presume). 

What do you think of Womack's and Maynard's breakup -- could you see it coming? Tell us in comments.
