(Note: My original report of a 3-carat center stone $90,000 ring was a bit off. Turns out the diamond carat-count totals 3 carats for all diamonds and the cost is about $50,000. Still – a gorgeous ring that will likely go back to the producers once the honeymoon’s over.)
Oh, Brad. You may have picked the perfect Neil Lane diamond engagment ring – but it looks like your leading lady, Emily Maynard, might not stick around for a walk down the aisle. Before we get to all that, the good news:
The ring was apparently the most expensive in the show’s history – a $50,000 show-stopper accented with 263 round brilliant-cut diamonds around a “romantic” central cushion-cut diamond for a grand total of 3 carats.
Here are some blurry screen shots too for your gawking pleasure from Small Screen Scoop:
But will the rock stay on Emily’s ring finger? After watching their crazy uncomfortable appearance on the After The Rose show amid confessions of a ‘rough couple of months’ – I give it another news cycle.
According to PopEater, it’s already over.
“Emily is so insecure, she just isn’t cut out for all the fame and attention her relationship is under,” a show insider told PopEater’s Rob Shuter. “The six weeks of shooting the show in paradise was easy, away from prying eyes and photographers, but since they both returned to their normal lives things have been a disaster.”
What do you think of the ring? Their chances? The fact that we continue to root for true love despite knowing we’re being manipulated by folks hoping for their shot at the D-list? Sigh.
