What has been rumored for months is finally confirmed: The Bachelorette Emily Maynard and Jef Holm end engagement after a whirlwind romance. The couple met while Emily was The Bachelorette 2012 on ABC and she chose Jef on the finale in July. It has been a bumpy road for both of them and it ends with The Bachelorette 2012 couple saying they are friends.

The Bachelorette 2012 couple have fought rumors since the finale in July and had a huge fight after a sexting scandal between Emily and Oakland Raiders quarterback Matt Leinart sent Jef over the edge. They had cheating scandals and they always denied it, but I am doubting that is the case, especially with the news of the breakup! What do you think?

Despite the end of their engagement, Emily and Jef are both claiming that they will remain friends. Emily Maynard told People Magazine: “I am sorry to tell you that Jef and I have, indeed, parted ways. 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.”

To not lose out on his chance in the limelight, Jef Holm said: “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 and I are great friends and I hope we can continue to be friends forever. Everyone wants a salacious story to break, but the truth is we are just two people who fell in love and tried our hardest to make it work. I will always love her.” Sappy truth or lies?

Why does ABC continue to do shows like The Bachelor and The Bachelorette when none of them ever seem to make it work once the show ends? Do they need people to fill spots on The Bachelor Pad?
