emily maynard bachelorette Emily Maynard to be the next 'Bachelorette'?After Emily Maynard broke up with Brad Womack when their “Bachelor” relationship fell apart, it’d be logical to think that the 25-year-old wouldn’t want to subject herself to another televised love search.

But according to Life & Style, Maynard has brushed herself off and hopped back on the horse, and is very close to signing on to be the next “Bachelorette.”

“It’s basically a done deal,” a source tells the magazine. “She hasn’t signed the contract yet, but she’s fully on board.”

Maynard, who has a 6-year-old daughter, Ricki, announced her split with Womack just four months after the “Bachelor” finale. At the time she tweeted that she didn’t want to be the next “Bachelorette,” perhaps time has healed some of her wounds.

“The Bachelor” comes back in January with Ben Flajnik as the suitor seeking a new love.

Do you think Maynard should become the next “Bachelorette,” or should the show find some fresh blood?
