I haven't seen the actual article in the magazine, but for anyone who has: Are there quotes from Cori or just from "sources" or "friends"? Also, if there are quotes from Cori, do we know if they are recent or possibly said years ago?
I just try to take all this stuff with a grain of salt. I'm sure there are parts in this article that are accurate and some is probably embellished. Since I know none of the people directly involved and don't have any personal stake in the situation, I will just say that's it's unfortunate when ANY contestant is dragged through the tabs and the stories that are made up/embellished to sell said mags.

I say the story is at least 98% false. Did Cori know Ricky, yes we've seen the pic of two them. Does that mean that everything else she said is true. No.
When you google, she doesn't even live in Charlotte or work at Levine. #justsaying
Besides they couldn't even bother to make sure one of the pictures of Brad that was used is really Brad.. Sorry they even got that wrong it's Chad..
I've known about all this sort of stuff from before the season started- my brother is a regular on nascar boards. If this makes anyone look bad, it's the Hendricks. Emily was a desperate and impressionable girl. The boy she loved had just died. She was pregnant. If the engagement was fabricated after-the-fact, you can't really blame her for slipping that ring on her finger. And stealing Ricky from Cori? Why women blame the other woman when their man leaves is beyond me. You blame the man, ladies
We plainly heard the teaser that Molly was worried about taking Jason home to meet her family. She had been in this, I think, 3 year relationship with this guy with whom her parents did not approve.
There were all kinds of speculation about Molly's illicit relationship....
The thing about it was absolutely zero came up about that during the HTs. I fugured that was because Molly was not the actual F1 at the FRC even though in essence she was the true F1 in the long run.
If Molly had been the F1 at the FRC, I suspect that angle would have played out, and whoever this guy and any skeletons attached might have rattled, but since she wasn't the FRC F1, they didn't pursue that teaser.
The happiest people don't necessarily have the best of everything. They just make the best of everything they have.

but there are too many holes in that story for me. Emily was definitely with Ricky for a long time (much more than 3 months) we have evidence of that, she is also wearing the ring on her finger while Ricky was alive. Now whether they were "officially" engaged or not, I don't know. And I honestly don't care, in the eyes of Emily and Ricky's parents they were. It doesn't change the fact that they loved each other very much and she suffered a terrible lose at the age of 18 and was left pregnant. Its still a sad story, isn't it?
I don't have any blinders on...Do I believe she dated NASCAR celebs, absolutely, its the world she lives in. Do I believe that she wanted to pursue a career in Entertainment at one time -- yes I could also see that since I don't think she has any formal degree from college but I don't think that makes her this evil person that everyone seems to want to turn her into. Emily never gave herself a Mother Theresa Edit, Meghan said it and it was more tongue in cheek because everyone knows Mother Teresa was a virgin and Emily had a baby at 18. It was more about how she treats people!
I know people have a problem with the fact that she came on the show and is a mom but she left Ricki in the very capable hands of her grandparents not at some daycare center. She came because she wanted to meet Brad on the Bachelor. So what. I don't see anything wrong with that.
I, like a lot of people, love and root for Emily not because of her story but for the fact that in spite of the story, she truly seems to be nice, loving and happy person. I admire the way she's handled herself in an environment that breeds and an often encourages the most unladylike action with its the endless amount a free following booze and boredom. This show generally shows the most trashy and the worst type of woman, and she's rare. When Ricki is older she would have nothing to be ashamed of over seeing her mom on Bachelor. I also think if Brad picked her, his family has to feel pretty good right now about her. She's also been very open and honest about how she felt about Ricky and that has to make his parents feel good as well, to know just how much she loved their son.
I like that she seems to genuinely care for those around her and I am not making that up just because I have on "blinders". I am taking that from what her friends here have said and the unfettered comments given by every girl that has left the show.

Everyone is going to believe what they want to whether true or not. I have my own opinion on Emily and it is not favorable. I won't be calling her names, nor will I say what I base it on. Why bring myself down to a baser level just because someone doesn't think the way I do? It's not worth it.
I would just like to say....she is not a Southernbelle. She was not born and raised in the Old South and her "drawl" keeps slipping into a WV twang.
That is all
