Recently, news and accusations that Emily Maynard is a difficult diva are saturating the web. We aren’t endorsing these allegations as true but we found them worthy of further discussion as a potential situation.
First, the news broke that Emily supposedly demanded $750,000 to lead the show.
Second, the news that Chris Harrison has not given her his phone number to “hang” post-production and has confined her to Twitter to communicate! (This may be my favorite detail for some reason. The idea that this girl may be such a situation she can’t be given more than 140 characters to communicate!)
Third, the accusation that she grilled producers about the wealth of her suitors.
Fourth, the alleged plastic surgery prior to Brad’s season.
And finally, her astronomical wardrobe budget. Emily is always impeccably dressed on each date, but the diva has apparently blown through the reality show’s very generous $350,000 wardrobe stipend!
Remember her one-on-one with Ryan where she dressed as a trophy? Apparently she was wearing a gold Randi Rahm dress that according to the UK’s Mail Online cost $40,000! Wow that was an expensive dig at Ryan!
“We had an enormous clothing budget,” Emily’s stylist, Cary Fetman, said. “It was bigger than any previous season … and we still went over!”
But according to USWeekly Emily had a lot of meltdowns over her wardrobe.
“She literally cried,” if she was dissatisfied with her on-set hair and makeup, the insider explains.
(I wonder if she cried when producers dressed her up as a trophy for Ryan Bowers?)
The flashy high-end dresses and other outfits Maynard appeared in on TV would also frequently be a cause for concern. “Emily would throw a fit if she didn’t like her outfit,” continues the source. “She’d break out in tears when she was unhappy.”
We tend to believe this report since we know Emily is an enneagram six and enneagram sixes are prone to enormous anxiety even when it comes to outfit choices. Thus the safety and security of finding a cute outfit for a big prime time date must be overwhelming for this personality type. We have personally witnessed many a six perseverating unnecessarily over an outfit choice for far less important occasions.
