Bachelor Couple

Yes, it appears that there's already trouble in paradise between Bachelor no more Brad Womack and his newly unveiled fiancee Emily Maynard something which is no doubt unsurprising to anyone who's picked up a tabloid.

So what's the problem this time? Are Brad and Emily the latest lovebirds to fall prey to the Bachelor curse? And are they even still together?

Let's start with the last question: yes. At least, for now.

"At long last, Emily and I can be open to the world and each other about our relationship," the duo who interestingly enough are defying the typical press-hungry reality couple route and not making themselves available to the media said in a joint statement.

"Though we are madly in love, it has been a bumpy couple of months for us and our priority right now is to focus on our relationship. We hope that you can respect our privacy as we return to normalcy and begin our off-screen lives together."

Hot damn, you mean these two crazy kids are actually more interested in their relationship than the publicity said relationship could yield them? That's just crazy enough to work!

Host Chris Harrison, who also didn't back down from sugarcoating the couple's less than smooth ride together, also seems convinced that the two-time Bachelor and the pretty single mom have what it takes to make it.

"They're already having their troubles, which doesn't bode well," he told E! News' Ryan Seacrest this morning. "In particular, this couple is a little bit bigger than them this is what I think is really troubling Emily, it's not just her, it's her daughter, and she thinks very highly of that.

"She's not just going to up and move to Austin like some single girl could. It's her and Ricki. There's a lot more to think about than just her and Brad."

Harrison went on, noting that Maynard's daughter, and the idea of whether Brad is ready to become a full-time father, was one of the issues they were dealing with.

"It's been extremely hard," Harrison said. "They actually broke up a couple of times. They both are incredibly stubborn, they're very much alike and neither one of them give. And they've had some knock-down drag out fights."

Still, while their troubles aren't entirely in the past, Harrison admitted that both are "so bound and determined to make this work" and that their connection is undeniable.

"He just had this thing for her really from the beginning," Harrison told Seacrest, adding that Womack was "really just smitten with the girl in a weird way he was nervous around her and almost awkward at times."

"They're doing as good as they ever have," he said of the couple, currently holed up together in Austin. "They are extremely happy and they are really trying to make it work."
