Big announcement from The Bachelorette! Emily Maynard will be returning to America's favorite key party, this time in the title role. Maynard previously appeared as a contestant on The Bachelor where she won the hearts and minds of both the public and Bachelor/golden retriever Brad Womack. Shockingly, Womack and Maynard's relationship soured once off camera, so Maynard is back and looking for love. Maynard is the first ever Bachelorette that also happens to be a single mother. The Bachelor franchise would like you to recognize this as progress for women in popular culture, but let's also not forget the progress made for children who like to watch their parents make out with 20 strangers at a random vineyard (to be fair, Jason Mesnick's kids were the first to have the honor).
