From what I remember about Emily's telling of her life and how she met Ricky she never said that they were a couple when she was 15, only that they met when she was 15. I also seem to recall that Emily's family and Ricky's family were building vacation homes next to each other when they met. Now since they met when Emily was 15 they could have been friendly and Emily could have had a crush on Ricky. Ricky very well could have been with Cori and engaged but something happened to end that. Then Ricky and Emily started dating. There is no way in the world that Cori or her buds can be believed about the Hendrick's giving Emily the engagement ring that Cori had when we have clearly seen photos of Emily wearing her engagement ring with Ricky. Really hard to do that after Ricky has died. Cori's buds may think they are doing her a favor by starting all of this carp but in my humble opinion they are making Cori look pathetic.
