Besides for those of you who take Cori's word on this .. she said she was with Ricky and they split in mid 2003.. hello Emily is 17 at that point. she's not 12 or even 15 then..
Why is everybody so willing believe a drug addict who cant get a job in North Carolina anymore?
Can we please just let this die.. ?
Some people think that itís holding on that makes one strong; sometimes itís letting go...
"It's just a show" - let's try not to trash people - tptb do that very well all on their own they don't need our help!

Go wherever you go...... WITH ALL YOUR HEART
I'm ready for the bach'ette Ash, now. My son is going to kill me if he lands on FORT these days seeing my new avatar
I think maybe she is confused about what her strengths really are, and therefore, plays to the lowest common denominator -- pity. (And I think she constantly gets positive reinforcement for that. It works, sadly).
Still, I get the vibe she wants to be a good wife/mother, truly, I do.
I just hope that when she ages a bit she starts to see she can stand on her OWN 2 feet, rather than stand on/rely on pity from the past.
We like because... we love although...."
Hi everyone. I wanted to weigh in on the discussion because my family has lived in the Charlotte, NC area for decades. I do not personally know Emily but our circles tend to overlap at times.
I would be very cautious about any info that you read about Emily on NASCAR blogs and boards. There are a lot of crazy/obsessed NASCAR fans out there that live on those boards and have nothing better to do than to trash talk people and spread rumors. Some of Dale Jrs fans hate Emily because she went out with him - even though it was only a couple of dates and never a serious relationship. There are also vengeful ex-GFs (such as Cori Tietsort Kurek) and jealous mothers of Jrs ex-GFs who have been known to go on those boards and trash talk people out of jealousy.
It's been stated repeatedly by those that know Emily that she did not move to Nashville for some guy. She moved there for a change of pace (taking Ricki with her) and happened to date while she was there. She did not have a live-in boyfriend in Nashville. The rumors about Emily giving up custody of her daughter & not spending time with her are nothing short of ridiculous. There are more than enough photos of them that prove their close relationship.
From what I hear, Emily is as sweet in person as she is on TV. Emily has definitely not dated "billions of guys" and she was not down at the track every week trolling for dates like some pit lizard. She is a devoted mother and is very mature for her age. While she has dated and gone out to clubs on occasion, she is far from the town tramp that some are trying to make her out to be.
The woman who's picture was posted up-thread is definitely NOT Emily's mother. Emily's mother is Susan "Susie" Few Maynard. She lives in FL but rumor has it that she recently acquired a condo in Austin, TX.....
I'm not dragging Ricky through the mud. Personally, I think Emily's parents have a little more responsibility in this than Ricky did, and I wonder if their daughter had been involved with someone his age but without the wealthy family and the name, whether it would have been a different story. I'm only discussing all of this in the context of how Emily has been shown to us, both by her own well-practiced story and by Fleiss. As far as Cori, I couldn't care less what she has to say and am not basing one bit of my opinion on it.
Game show contestants are fair game on this board, and the best way to let something die is not to post in response to it and therefore keep it going.
