"Bachelorette" Emily Maynard might look like a sweet Southern Belle, but she has some serious fight in her when it comes to defending her daughter, Ricki.
Maynard proves she's not afraid to use her claws during "The Bachelorette: Men Tell All," a special episode airing Monday July 16, when former contestant Kalon McMahon attempts to apologize for comments made about Maynard's daughter.
"Emily, obviously I would like to apologize for the way things transpired," Mahon says in a preview of the "Men Tell All" episode obtained by Us Weekly. "I'm trying to use it as a growing experience in my future relationships and I really wish the best for you."
But Maynard doesn't accept McMahon's apology and criticizes the Texas native, who dubbed her daughter "baggage" on the June 11 episode of the ABC series.
The 26-year-old single mother has had issues with McMahon since he landed at the "Bachelorette" house in a helicopter.
Maynard has previously voiced her distaste for McMahon: When she found out he will appear in "Bachelor Pad 3," she tweeted her dismay.
"The fact Kalon will ever be on any tv again makes me want to stab my eyeballs out with dull pencils. Too much?" Maynard tweeted on June 14.
Although McMahon might be in the hot seat during "The Bachelorette: Men Tell All," Maynard does have some kinder words for other cast-offs.
"A dejected Sean seeks closure, disclosing that he has 'never had a broken heart' until now with Emily. Not only did he truly fall in love, but still has strong feelings for her." ABC revealed in a press release teasing the episode, obtained via TV Press Feed. "She [Emily] wants to make sure Sean knows that their parting was very tough on her as well, and that their relationship was totally real to her."
Check out "The Bachelorette: Men Tell All" episode, airing Monday, July 16, at 8 p.m. EST on ABC.
