Bachelorette contestant Arie Luyendyk Jr., who is a professional race car driver like Emily Maynardâ€™s late fiancÃ©, allegedly had a romantic relationship with one of the showâ€™s female producers, a woman called Cassie Lambert (see pic above).
Cassie and Arieâ€™s relationship was long over before he came on the show to vie for Emilyâ€™s heart. In fact, Cassie is now happily engaged to another producer of the show, but the Bachelorette still feels betrayed because Cassie was involved in the selection of her potential suitors.
According to Wetpaint, Emily only recently discovered Arie and the producerâ€™s connection because she was not allowed to have phone or Internet while shooting the show. Emily is totally pissed!
â€œEmily was shocked when she was told about Cassie and Arieâ€™s history,â€ our Bachelor insider says. â€œSheâ€™s furious right now.â€
â€œThe sex stuff is especially upsetting. Sheâ€™s not comfortable with the fact that this guy sheâ€™s started to fall for has already slept with her producer.â€
Emily has the right to feel betrayed. She was falling hard for Arie, who is considered one of the front-runners, and there was one very important piece of information that could have completely changed her opinion.
Ironically, Arie is one of Emilyâ€™s final four contestants and he recently took her to meet his family in Arizona during the hometown dates. Another hot bachelor, another disappointment for Emily. Will Emily ever find happiness? Maybe she is looking in all the wrong places!
