Bachelor In Paradise WILL Show Footage Of Corinne Olympios & DeMario Jackson!

Bachelor In Paradise plans to address their controversy head on. As you surely know, the Bachelor spin-off's season four production was briefly halted after allegations of sexual misconduct hit the set. At the time, it was reported that contestant Corinne Olympios may've been too drunk to consent to a sexual encounter with BIP peer DeMario Jackson. Related: [...] Bachelor In Paradise plans to address their controversy head on. As you surely know, the Bachelor spin-off's season four production was briefly halted after allegations of sexual misconduct hit the set. At the time, it was reported that contestant Corinne Olympios may've been too drunk to consent to a sexual encounter with BIP peer DeMario Jackson. Related: DeMario Jackson Might Be Taking His Talents To DWTS! However, after Warner Bros. completed an investigation into the matter, production resumed as those involved with the scandal were cleared of any wrongdoing. Now, thanks to the first BIP trailer, we know the controversial dating competition will discuss the alleged misconduct. Oh, and it's now said footage of Olympios and Jackson will STILL make it onto the air. On how they plan to tackle this scandal, Paradise host Chris Harrison told Entertainment Weekly: "It's going to be literally dealt with the moment we come on the air. We'll start talking about it right away and start dealing with it. If you don't, it's the elephant in the room and then it will taint the entire season. So we want to show everybody and then get on with Paradise because there are some wonderful things that are going to be happening." Obviously, ABC isn't going to air the moment which sparked a formal investigation, but they will share footage from before the drama. Harrison continued: "There's been a lot written and assumed and said about what we're going to do and what we're not going to do. We had already shot for three days [before the shutdown] and a lot had actually happened — a lot of people had arrived, there had been dates, we'd gotten to the point where there was about to be our first rose ceremony — so we had a week's worth of stuff [that] we didn't want to just throw that away because that's what impacted the show and it's what led to the shutdown. We thought you needed to see that. So you're going to see a lot of it, including Corinne and DeMario on the show. When we restart, it will be me back in Mexico walking you through what happened and then we're going to watch what happened. And then we'll cut back to me and I'll kind of shed some more light on things and then we're going to go back and you're going to see more of what happened, [and] not just the controversial. You're going to see a lot of things, people falling in love, a lot of dates happening." While the controversy certainly had an impact on the set, the TV personality promises that plenty of good relationship were formed during filming. The industry vet noted: "I think people have this preconceived notion of what it was like and what was going on and really the only way to prove anything or show you anything is to all watch it and you can judge for yourself. So that will involve seeing Corinne and DeMario and it will also involve Carly and Evan's wedding." Fair enough. And for anyone in Bachelor nation who has doubts, Chris (who hasn't seen a finalized cut of the show) vowed: "To the best of my knowledge, you're going to see more than enough to show you what was happening that led up to the shutdown, within certain taste and values of what we can show on network TV." There you have it. We guess we'll just have to wait and see what ACTUALLY happens when BIP returns on August 14! [Image via Instagram/WENN.].....»»

Chris Harrison Begs Bachelor Nation To "Trust" Him As He Promises Corinne & DeMario"s BiP Reunion Will Explain Everything

Even Chris Harrison is nervous about Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson's sit down.

As we previously reported, the scandalized Bachelor in Paradise stars will come face to face following their sex scandal as they're both appearing on the ABC hit's reunion episode. In case you forgot, a drunken sexual encounter between Olympios and Jackson briefly halted the season four production of BiP when it was believed that Nicki Viall's ex may've been too drunk to consent. Related: BiP's Amanda Stanton Has Found Love Again After an investigation into the alleged sexual misconduct, Warner Bros. cleared all those involved in the headline making incident. And it seems as though Corinne and DeMario are eager to tell their side of what went down in Mexico as Harrison recently revealed that he plans to interview the two together during the special. While speaking with Entertainment Tonight at The Bachelorette: Men Tell All taping, the longtime Bachelor host dished: "We're going to sit down with [Demario]. I don't think it'll be just part of the [BiP] reunion show. I'm going to sit down with DeMario and Corinne as part of a sit-down talk with the two of them." We're sure the infamous Bachelor nation villains will have plenty of tea to spill. Not to mention, it sounds like Rachel Lindsay's ex is clapping back at anyone who is coming for his character as he apparently made "bad choices" during the Men Tell All special. Chris continued: "Honestly, after tonight I don't know how that dialogue's going to [go]. I thought I had an idea before tonight, but I also thought we'd have a better moment than we had tonight. So, I don't know. Now I'm not really sure how it's going to be. We'll see." Looks like DeMario is done being vilified. Regardless, fans of the franchise will definitely get answers to their many questions as Harrison promised that "all will be explained." Amid his defense over the controversial first BiP promo, the TV personality noted: "First and foremost, I think a lot of people -- some people on social media reached out and said we were tone deaf. And I need people to step back a little bit, wait and watch. All will be explained. Trust me. Have I left you guys hanging before in 16 years? No. All will be explained and I really do mean that. I need people to understand this was not a black-and-white, cut-and-dry issue. It's really -- there's a lot of layers to it. It was very confusing. I went through it and it was confusing. So, trust me. It needs to all play out." Fair enough. Between next week's Men Tell All special and the upcoming season of Paradise, we have a feeling Bachelor nation news will be non stop for the rest of the summer. *Sigh* [Image via ABC/Judy Eddy/WENN.].....»»

BiP"s Corinne Olympios Hits Back At DeMario Jackson"s Claim That He Was "Falsely Accused" Amid Misconduct Scandal!

There are two sides to every story.

Corinne Olympios has officially responded to DeMario Jackson's claim that he was "falsely accused" of sexual misconduct during the season four production of Bachelor In Paradise. In case you forgot, production of the Bachelor spin-off was briefly halted after a complaint indicated that Olympios may've been too drunk to consent to a sexual encounter with Jackson. Related: Amanda Plays Coy About Her Relationship With Her BiP Costar The show's filming schedule resumed after a two week break as Warner Bros. cleared those involved of any wrongdoing. Now, BiP is addressing the scandal head on as they've since teased footage of DeMario and Corinne in a pool in a recent trailer. After the promo premiered, Rachel Lindsay's castoff seemed happy to see footage of himself and Corinne as it seemingly proved he did nothing wrong. The Bachelorette villain told Entertainment Tonight: "I'm glad footage of that day is being shown. ... This is a victory for all men who have been falsely accused." However, before we start calling DeMario a martyr, Corinne wants fans to know that the clip included in the trailer was NOT from the twosome's headline making incident. Apparently, the footage of the two Bachelor nation vets is from a different interaction not relating to the scandal. As Miz Olympios never made an allegation against the 30-year-old, the Miami native hit back at his comment by saying it was "false and misleading." Her rep added to Us Weekly: "As DeMario is well aware, the footage that was in the promo was not of the encounter that caused production to be shut down. The encounter that caused production to be shut down took place much later in the day, and it was in a hot tub, not a pool. ... Corinne has never leveled any accusations at DeMario." Oof. Just so everyone knows, Warner Bros. has made it perfectly clear that the tape of the alleged encounter will not make it onto the show. Nonetheless, we're innerested to see how this whole thing plays out when BiP returns on August 14 at 8 p.m. ET. [Image via Instagram.].....»»

Related: Is This Really 'Every Man's Biggest Fear'?? In fact, Jackson wants them to air that footage on the upcoming season of BIP SO badly, that he literally went out last night in West Hollywood with a shirt that had a very, very simple message plastered across it: "Show The Tape!" Pretty clear where he stands, eh?! Unfortunately for him, though, Warner Bros. has come down hard, saying that the infamous hot tub footage in question will NOT be aired this year on the reality disaster of a show. Producers did tease the hook-up in a recent trailer for the new season, and obviously the moment will likely be much-discussed between BIP itself and any other reunion shows beyond this, but at least for the specific footage... good luck seeing it publicly.

Last night, the first episode of Bachelor in Paradise‘s new season aired, and it addressed what happened leading up to the shutdown in production over a hookup between DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios. The hookup lead to allegations of sexual assault. The hookup was never actually seen, and not much was made of the fact that Corinne and DeMario spent the first evening together. Later in the show, just before the first rose ceremony, the cast was seen chilling around the beach. All of a sudden a producer called Corinne over and she said, “What’s up?” and replied, “I don’t know.” DeMario was also approached by a producer and taken away. At this point, the cast seemed very confused and someone asked “Where is Corinne?” Then, the cast noticed that filming had stopped. “Everyone’s very confused right now,” Danielle said. “It’s kind of like a chill all over paradise. We’re all just looking at each other like, ‘What the f–k is happening?’” Taylor could be heard speculating, “Corinne and DeMario from the first night.” The episode ended in a cliffhanger and there’s another new episode tonight on ABC, which will presumably reveal more information.

I remember just talking to my mom, like, ‘My life’s over. Like, I don’t even want to live anymore.’ And she, like, lost it,” DeMario told ET. He continued that he started seeing a therapist and lost 25 pounds after everything went down.

Don’t let the people who weren’t there alter your judgment. Don’t let the people who weren’t there get the best of you,” he continued. “Corinne‘s a lot like me, she’s extremely misunderstood.

There were allegations of sexual misconduct after the two reality stars were reportedly intoxicated in a hot tub together and the incident will be addressed on the season premiere. Production was shut down while producers investigated what happened and after Warner Bros. TV deemed nothing impromper occurred, production resumed, but with DeMario and Corinne. “Just from watching it, it seemed to me that there was nothing really out of the ordinary. It seemed like summer fun that we would normally have in Paradise,” executive producer Martin Hilton said in a new interview with EW. “And so it was fairly clear to me watching it that this was not going to be a long-term issue, yet even the perceived issue is important for us to get right both for the people who have worked on the show forever and with the cast. It was important to slow down, really look at this, and only proceed if everything checked out.” Martin is pretty sure that the future of Bachelor Nation is safe. “Obviously, as producers, you always have that feeling on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette, even though we’ve been on so long, that somehow it could be canceled next season,” Hilton said. “But I feel pretty positive that we will be back next summer with another season of Bachelor in Paradise.”.....»»

Bachelorette Rachel Lindsay Drags Contestant Lee Garrett For His Racist Ways During The Men Tell All Special — Recap HERE!

Rachel Lindsay may be the best Bachelorette EVER! We say this with confidence as the Dallas-based attorney took one of her former contestants to task for being racist AF during the Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special. But, hey, we're getting ahead of ourselves. Related: A Bachelor Vet May've Just Spoiled Who Wins Rachel's Heart! As you likely [...] Rachel Lindsay may be the best Bachelorette EVER! We say this with confidence as the Dallas-based attorney took one of her former contestants to task for being racist AF during the Bachelorette: The Men Tell All special. But, hey, we're getting ahead of ourselves. Related: A Bachelor Vet May've Just Spoiled Who Wins Rachel's Heart! As you likely know, the episode before the final rose ceremony is always a reunion sit down where the lead for the current season of the ABC dating competition is able to get closure from his or her past suitors. The Tell All episode is normally super dramatic, so obviously, this time around was no different. Let's not waste anymore precious time and jump into it all... DeMario Scrambles To Explain That Girlfriend Drama It seems like a lifetime ago when DeMario Jackson was caught having ghosted his girlfriend in order to go onto the Bachelorette. We're sure the Dancing With The Stars hopeful is missing the days when this was his only drama. In case you forgot, Mr. Jackson was given the boot after a former flame came onto the show and said the executive recruiter was pretty much her boyfriend. So... what did DeMario have to say for himself?? Unapologetically, Jackson told the audience: "That's called a side chick. You can boo me. I'm just keeping it real." Hmmmm. Chris Harrison wasn't about that blasé answer as he clapped back: "I feel like now you're really distancing yourself from Lexi. I had this guy DeMario tell me he dated her and had been in a relationship." While DeMario was quick to deny this accusation, the Bachelorette host was vehement he had the confession on "tape." As for the other men in the house, they laid into Jackson for causing the drama and for making Rachel emotionally closed off during filming. Dramaaaaa! The Kenny Vs. Lee Feud Lee Garrett and Kenny King were in a feud for pretty much the entire first half of season 13. There's no denying that the Nashville native did everything in his power to get under the professional wrestler's skin, so unsurprisingly, a lot of the guys sided with Kenny in this drama. Dean Unglert even said in defense of King: "Kenny might have been the most well-liked guy in the house and it's hard to say the same about Lee. I will forever have Kenny's back in that situation. I think that Lee made a point to badger certain people." Fair point. Still, not EVERYONE was #TeamKenny, as DeMario added: "The Lee that I know was a very genuine guy." On his feud with Lee, Kenny argued that Lee's actions were out of fear that he didn't "belong." Thankfully, Lee took the criticism and apologized to Kenny. The singer/songwriter even admitted that he "should have been a better friend." The father-of-one accepted Lee's apology but noted he and his former frenemy are unlikely to "sit and kick it" anytime soon. Speaking of Kenny's daughter, Harrison then brought out the youngster and shared that ABC was sending the two of them to Disneyland to celebrate the Las Vegas resident's birthday in style. We have a feeling this was the network's way of apologizing for casting a racist on the reality show! Lee Apologizes For His Racist Ways Just when you thought we were done with the Lee drama, Chris had to bring him up on stage. As you likely know, on top of Garrett's offensive behavior on the Bachelorette, the 30-year-old also made headlines for some seemingly racist and misogynistic tweets he sent in his past. Lee was quick to apologize for being so ignorant, but Dean wasn't buying it as he called out his peer for fanning the fire online. The baby faced contestant dished: "You should have done this [and apologized] two months ago." Several of the other suitors agreed with this sentiment as a few pondered if Lee would feel sorry if he hadn't been caught. Nonetheless, Lee stood by his apology and added: "I feel like I have a lot to learn...If I hurt anybody in any way, with a bad joke, I apologize. I did things that were wrong.... I completely denounce that and I denounce that Lee. I want to learn... I am sorry for saying things when I was not educated and ignorant in those subjects." The apology seemed to win over most people, especially Kenny, as he vowed to help educate Lee. The two even hugged it out! Justice For Dean Fan favorite Dean was able to get some closure over his failed relationship with Rachel as the former flames were able to sit down and talk about what happened between the them. On how blindsided he was by Rachel's dumping of him, Unglert noted: "She's always going to have a piece of my heart, but I understand that door is closed." Poor guy. Miz Lindsay then came out and admitted to Dean that it was "very, very difficult" to say goodbye to him. Rachel's words weren't enough for Dean as he hit back with: "I'm still confused about why you told me you were falling in love with me and then I got the boot four days later." The legal expert tried to articulate her decision, but at the end of the day, the Venice resident was left unconvinced. Regardless, Dean chose to let the whole thing go -- which is a good thing since he's Bachelor In Paradise bound. Rachel Weighs In On The Lee Controversy The final showdown of the night occurred between Rachel and Lee as she called out her former beau for being racist. After scolding Kenny for handling the Lee situation poorly, Rachel came for Lee and told him directly: "I feel like I'm in such a unique position, I have the opportunity to be a spokesperson for African Americans, for women, and I just feel like you had such an amazing opportunity to be surrounded by different people and different cultures and you didn't take advantage of that. You can meet me backstage and I'd be more than happy to give you a black history lesson and a lesson on women's rights." You tell 'em, girl! Lee apologized once more, but this time to Rachel specifically, as he relayed: "Today, I learned how great the people that I was with actually are and I just, I want to apologize to you too." Rachel accepted the apology and the drama was officially put to bed. What do YOU think?? Were Lee's many apologies sincere?? SOUND OFF in the comments (below)! [Image via ABC/Twitter.].....»»

Just last week the TV personality told TMZ when asked about a possible spot on DWTS: "I would murder Despacito on that show. People don't understand, I'm like a black Latin salsa dancer, so I would love it. If I got the opportunity to dance with the stars, it would be something that I would 100 percent welcome.

It appears Corinne Olympios has finally revealed what caused her headline-making blackout during the production of Bachelor in Paradise. In case you somehow missed this drama, the season four production of BiP was briefly halted after allegations of "sexual misconduct" arose. Related: Twitter Reacts To The Emotional Bachelorette Finale At the time, it was believed that Miz Olympios was too drunk to consent to a sexual encounter with her costar, DeMario Jackson. However, filming resumed after Warner Bros. investigated the matter and ruled that those involved were innocent of any wrongdoing. Still, since many people involved with the scandal stayed tight lipped about the drama, fans were left in the dark about what exactly happened in Paradise. Well, thanks to the Bachelor In Paradise reunion taping, it seems we finally have some answers. According to TMZ, Nick Viall's ex admitted to mixing prescription drugs and alcohol on the day of the now infamous pool hookup. Oh no. Apparently, the Bachelor season 21 villain made this confession on Saturday while filming the BiP reunion special. It's said Corinne is vehement that the ingested combo of pills and booze increased her drunkenness and led to her subsequent blackout. The reality TV starlet did not specify what type of pills she took. Corinne's statement certainly shines a light onto the new policies production implemented following the scandal -- which included staffers checking bags for drugs and such. We're definitely interested to see how this entire drama plays out when BiP returns on August 14!! [Image via Instagram.].....»»
