Emily Maynard: Is She the Next 'Bachelorette'?

Emily MaynardAlthough Emily Maynard won over Brad Womack on 'The Bachelor,' the love didn't seem to last for the couple. Now, the newly single Maynard is rumored to be in the running to star in the next season of 'The Bachelorette.'

Maynard won the last season of the ABC matchmaking show, but she and Womack just weren't meant to be. The happy couple apparently wasn't so happy -- they seemed on the rocks ever since the finale aired -- and recently announced they have broken off their engagement.

Now that Maynard's single, she's hoping to snag the coveted title of 'Bachelorette' for the series' next go-around, according to Us Weekly.

"She hasn't officially signed on yet, but it looks like a done deal," a source revealed, adding Maynard hopes to use the spotlight afforded by the show to help boost her broadcast journalism career. "She wants to be famous."

Maynard, who is mom to 6-year-old Ricki, is hoping to have some better luck in the love department this time around. She told PEOPLE last month that though she's no longer engaged to Womack, their broken relationship was not his fault.

"The demise of our relationship was completely my fault," the 38-year-old told said. "Just because we love each other doesn't mean we're right for each other."

Maynard will share even more details of the breakup when she sits down with 'Bachelor' host Chris Harrison during the July 11 episode of 'The Bachelorette.'
