Emily Maynard: 'The Bachelorette' bachelor Kalon McMahon has never apologized to me


By Elizabeth Kwiatkowski, 06/12/2012 

Emily Maynard says she has been waiting around for something that may never come from The Bachelorette bachelor Kalon McMahon, whom she eliminated during Monday night's broadcast for referring to her daughter Ricki as "baggage."

"I still to this day haven't received an apology of any sort, and that to me is the most telling of all. Looking back, I should've sent him home the second he told me not to interrupt him, but I guess it's a good lesson learned. Ladies, always follow your gut!" Maynard wrote on her People blog. 

"I'm disappointed in Kalon for letting his hurt ego cause him to say such hurtful things that no mother should ever hear. I'm confident that if I had shown him more attention, he never would've said those things, but I'm glad I didn't because it let me see his true colors. For so long Kalon had been so condescending to me and everyone else in the house, but I know what it's like to be misunderstood and I didn't want to be one of those people that wrote him off before really making an effort to get to know him."

Although Maynard believes she has seen the real McMahon, she's not suggesting he can't change or better himself as a person. 

"I've always believed that you should pray for those that hurt you, and as hard as it is sometimes I hope that Kalon has learned from this whole experience, realized how hurtful his words can be, and hopefully will be kinder in the future no matter how badly his ego has been bruised," The Bachelorette star explained.

While McMahon clearly ruined the week's group date for Maynard, bachelor Jef Holm came to the rescue during his one-on-one date with the single mom the following day.

"As you all can tell, I clearly had a huge crush on Jef from the beginning. It's crazy because in one sense he makes me feel comfortable enough to be myself, but in another way I would get so nervous and awkward around him... Jef was exactly what I needed to regain the confidence I had in this whole experience and in myself. I swear, my whole world could be crashing down and he could read the back of a shampoo bottle and I would immediately feel like everything was going to be okay," Maynard said.

"I knew from that date and our perfect kiss on the bridge that my instincts weren't wrong about him at all. He truly is one of the kindest human beings I've ever been around and just the fact that he could make me laugh on a day that I had a hard time just smiling means the absolute world to me."

Holm wasn't the only guy Maynard justifiably put on a pedestal from the very first day, as she was immediately taken with Sean Lowe -- who has yet to disappoint The Bachelorette star so far this season. 

"I had such high expectations for our date and to be honest, had built him up so high in my head that I was worried I had set him up to fail because no one could ever be that perfect. However, it wasn't long into our date that I realized Sean was even better than I ever could've imagined," Maynard explained.

"Like I told him on our date, guys that are as good-looking as he is usually bore me to tears, but Sean is the total opposite! He's sweet, funny, and humble -- and his passion for his family and faith are even more attractive to me than his appearance. And trust me, that's saying a lot!"
