Emily Maynard says she was surprised by Bentley Williams's cruel behavior
on The Bachelorette
this week – but doesn't believe he'd be any different if she were on the show
instead of Ashley Hebert.
"He clearly had an agenda for being on the show, and it wasn't to fall in love," Maynard, the winner of The Bachelor
this past season, says in a new video
Williams broke Hebert's heart
on Monday's episode, claiming, among other things, that he wished Maynard had been the Bachelorette this season. "It's hard for me to believe that someone could be that hurtful and just mean spirited," Maynard says.
But she believes what goes around comes around, and says: "I were Bentley, I would certainly be sleeping with one eye open."
Hopefully we've seen and heard the last of Bentley, Maynard adds. "I'm really hoping we can stop focusing on all the negative, and focus on all the great guys that she does have there," she says.
