Former ‘Bachelorette’ Emily Maynard Criticizes Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi’s Relationship!

Sean Lowe isn’t the only Bachelor alum convinced that Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi‘s engagement won’t last!

After the Season 17 suitor tweeted, “What’s the winner going to do with her time this summer while nick is filming BIP?,” former Bachelorette Emily Maynard dissed the couple during the After the Final Rose special.

“They look like me and you know who. Yikes!!” the blonde beauty, who got engaged to both Brad Womack and Jef Holm on the reality dating competition, wrote. Fans assumed the mother-of-three was referring to her relationship with Brad, which ended just three months after the Season 15 finale aired. Fans began to question their commitment after Emily didn’t wear her engagement ring on the reunion show.

Ashley Spivey, who also appeared on Brad’s season of The Bachelor, concurred, writing, “Oh Em I agree. let’s hope Nick finds a happiness like yours though” — referencing the 31-year-old’s current marriage to Tyler Johnson.

In an interview with People magazine in 2016, Emily admitted, “The feelings that I had for Brad were very real. But I don’t know if I was in love with him. I thought maybe when the show was over, the walls would drop and we could be silly and have fun. I tried to bring that out in him, but we were just two different people. I had feelings inside saying this isn’t right. I kept trying and we’d take a couple steps forward and then go straight back. It just wasn’t meant to be.”

As for her romance with Jef, who proposed during her season of The Bachelorette, the Southern belle said, “I didn’t say yes out of pressure… But [my daughter] Ricki ran up, and I was like, ‘Something doesn’t feel right. How did I get engaged to someone who’s never really spent time around my daughter?’”
