GMA: “Bachelorette” Couple Emily Maynard and Jef Holm
When Bachelorette Emily Maynard accepted Jef Holm’s proposal on the finale of ABC’s The Bachelorette, it seemed like a fairy tale ending. However, as is often the case with Bachelor and Bachelorette couples, their road appeared to become rocky after their relationship moved from the show to the glaring eyes of the real world. Now, with cheating rumors rocking the couple and magazine headlines making claims of infidelity and tears, what’s really going on with Emily and Jef? The couple appeared on GMA September 7 to separate fact from fiction.
Emily Maynard & Jef Holm: “Better Than Ever”
Jef and Emily sat down with Lara Spencer to declare that all of the rumors surrounding them are just that: rumors. Emily was shocked to hear all of the lies that had been circulating, but assured that she and Jef are “better than ever.”
Jef has just moved to Charlotte, North Carolina, where Emily lives with her seven-year-old daughter. The couple are even beginning their wedding plans; Emily said she hopes to have “good music, good food, and lots of family” to celebrate her marriage to Jef.
Sadly, Jef confirmed that many of the rumors and magazine articles are actually coming from his own brother, who has been speaking out against him. Jef admitted that he’s not sure why his brother would spread lies about him, but that he continues to have a relationship with him.
Jef Holm People Water Review
Jef is focused most of all on his company, People Water. For every bottle purchased, a bottle of clean water will be sent to someone in need in another country. It’s a great cause that Jef is passionate about, and he was able to take his fiance with him on a recent trip to Ghana. Emily said that traveling to Africa reminded her of what’s important in life.
Could Emily and Jef be an exception to the Bachelorette break-up rule? Looks like it!
