Emily’s Instagram explored
Emily mostly uses her Instagram to share motivational quotes and keep her followers updated about her personal life. She is 50 years old and her social media posts reveal that she is based in Canada.
Even though she is appearing on The Bachelorette to meet Katie, her Instagram still consists of pictures of Blake from Tayshia Adams’ season.
In February, she took to Instagram to defend Blake following his appearance on the Chicks in the Office podcast, to address the “overt sexual” remarks he had made about her, according to the listeners.
She said in the video, “No, I am not pissed out with that at all.” before adding, “People need to just lighten the f*** up.”
Sneak Peek of Hometown
Hometown is one of the most important segments of The Bachelorette and going by the teaser for episode 9, it seems to run high on drama.
While Blake’s sister Cody tells him to express his feelings for Katie as someone else might have already done it, Emily also speaks on behalf of her son.
However, with Blake yet to tell those three magical words to Katie, it remains to be seen what other drama is going to unfold when the bachelorette meets the families of the suitors.
‘The Bachelorette’ airs every Monday on ABC.
