Pal: Brad Womack, Emily Maynard in "Rough Patch"

Where are Brad Womack and Emily Maynard -- and how are they doing?

"They're in a rough patch," a source tells Us Weekly of the couple, whose November 2010 engagement was broadcast on the March 14 finale of The Bachelor. Indeed, Womack, 38, and fiancee Maynard, 25, have not been photographed together since March 27.

"They are not broken up, and they are trying -- as they have been since November when they got engaged -- to make it work," the insider explains.

Adds another pal: "Brad just sent me a text and said that he and Emily aren't totally over. They're working on their relationship and, yeah, there are some lingering issues."

Find out just what those issues are in this week's Hot Stuff video, as explained by Senior Editor Ian Drew with special guest, country singer Luke Bryan.
