emily maynard abc 'Bachelorette' Emily Maynard: Ali Fedotowsky, Ashley Hebert to the rescue!On Monday night’s “Bachelor,” they showed a special sneak peek of “The Bachelorette,” which stars Brad’s ex Emily Maynard and will premiere at the end of May. In the preview, Emily says, “Life after breaking up with Brad was really hard on me … a heartbreak is a hard thing to get over. But my life has gone back to normal.”

OK, first of all – like any of us bought you and Brad. Talk about zero chemistry. Secondly, “normal” must have gotten pretty boring if you agreed to be the Bachelorette and move to Los Angeles. But little Ricki is still adorable as all get out.

But Ali Fedotowsky and Ashley Hebert are there to rescue her. Though weirdly, Ali is dressed like a very chic professional cyclist and Ashley looks like she should be starring in Disney Princesses on Ice.

Ali comments that she wishes she’d had this type of girls’ day before she was the Bachelorette. A day to worry about the “little things” that go along with “dating 25 guys.” Um, condoms and getting your shots up to date?

They go get their make-up done, which – how can there be any room on Emily’s face for any more make-up? Then they force the girls to go see “Titanic” 3-D. Gag. Ashley says the relationship in “Titanic” is the epitome of the perfect relationship. Well, sure. Hot, intense emotion and you don’t have to learn about all the crappy/annoying stuff because he dies in the frigid waters of the Atlantic. Totally perfect.

As we fade out, Emily says she won’t settle for anything less than what she had with her late fiance. No pressure, guys. Just a dead’s ghost following you around at all times.

We’ll post video as soon as we have it.
