Corinne Olympios Reveals She Got Engaged to Ex-Boyfriend After Nick Viall"s Season of "The Bachelor"

The Bachelor in Paradise scandal almost didn't happen -- because Corinne Olympios would have been an engaged woman! The reality star revealed that she was engaged in between competing on The Bachelor and Paradise during an appearance on The Morning Breath on Tuesday.  After she was sent home by Nick Viall, Olympios rekindled her relationship with her former longtime bodyguard. "I got home, and he showed up at my house with a ring," she said.  The pair's engagement, however, did not last long --... [[ This is a content summary only.

Bachelor In Paradise Finally Addresses The Corinne Olympios & DeMario Jackson Drama — Race "Absolutely" Played A Part

What an important conversation. On night two of the Bachelor in Paradise premiere on Tuesday, ABC showed some of the story between DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios before the controversial hookup — but more interestingly, Chris Harrison sat down with the cast for a discussion about race, sexual consent, and whether or not the show should [...] What an important conversation. On night two of the Bachelor in Paradise premiere on Tuesday, ABC showed some of the story between DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios before the controversial hookup -- but more interestingly, Chris Harrison sat down with the cast for a discussion about race, sexual consent, and whether or not the show should resume. It's not every day these conversations pop up on reality TV, but we're still curious to know if this was just a desperate attempt for Warner Bros. to prove they aren't liable. Related: Jimmy Kimmel's Baby Bachelor In Paradise Returns! ANYWAY, we'll let you be the judge. -- Harrison asked the remaining cast members if they trusted the outside firm's conclusion that there was "no evidence of misconduct by cast on the set," to which Raven Gates responded: "I was confident that nothing happened between DeMario and Corinne that was bad. I trusted everyone that worked here, so I knew everything was going to be okay." Adding: "My biggest worry was for not only production, because I felt like they were kinda blamed. My worry was for DeMario and Corrine because we knew what happened, but it was so unfair the way that people were speaking about DeMario and the blame he was getting and the horrible things said to him and Corinne both — it broke my heart because I thought no matter if everything is cleared up, people are still going to associate something bad happening with Corinne and DeMario." Alex Woytkiw chimed in: "I think there was a lot in the media regarding the producers as if they're not our friends and they're just using us to make us do things like we're going to just do whatever they say." Derek Peth added: "I think there's a weird perception that exists out there that we're not in control of ourselves when we're here. … We all know how realistic the friendships are with and among the cast. … We are here to make our own decisions and develop real relationships with everybody." Taylor Nolan (Corinne's arch-nemesis from Nick Viall's season who doesn't drink) dished: "We're responsible for ourselves and the things we say, how much we drink, who we kiss. We're all adults here. We're not here to be babysat by production." "Diggy" Moreland expressed his concern for DeMario's future: "Obviously everything came out clean, but I empathize with DeMario a lot more just because I mean obviously we had a black male, white female. But he has 20-30 years of Google searches that are going to be done in his name. I'm thinking of the long-term effects and I was really pissed about that." -- Chris then asked the contestants if they thought race "played a part" in the whole debacle, to which everyone responded with a bevy of "yes," "for sure," and "absolutely" answers. Raven explained: "I'm sensitive to it because I'm from the South and we have a stigma that we're seeing a white woman with a black man is wrong. And that night, what happened wasn't wrong. And so I was super empathetic with DeMario because it's just another issue. Not only is consent important, but it's also to get rid of the stigma that interracial couples can't be or blaming African American men for crimes they didn't commit." Jasmine Goode said of her outrage over what happened: "I was just thinking the whole time: what if this happened to my brother? He's a great guy from the guy I met here … and I never felt he was aggressive with any of us. … I just hate that he's going to have this image stuck with him for a while." -- Then there was the other important topic of conversation: slut-shaming. Raven voiced again: "I think for me and Jasmine, when we were kind of vocal about sticking up for DeMario, people automatically assumed we were slut-shaming Corinne and that was not the case at all. We felt for her. It was never calling her any names or judging her for anything she did. Because we didn't think she did anything wrong and neither did DeMario." Nick's runner-up then continued by bravely opening up about her own experience of being sexually assaulted: "A lot of people don't know this that I was in a very abusive relationship and there was a point where I was sexually assaulted and so I guess that's why I took this kind of really personally. So I hope this situation doesn't deter actual victims from coming forward and really speaking their truth and getting help and asking for help. I hope this doesn't deter anybody." -- Lastly, Harrison brought up sexual consent. The TV personality said: "One of the topics that this has raised and something we should talk about is consent … 'How do you know when someone has given consent when you are getting intimate with somebody?' and 'If somebody is passed out, unresponsive, can they give consent? If somebody is drunk, can they give consent?' ... The purpose of Paradise and what I'm hoping for all of you — and I'm sure you're all hoping — is to fall in love here. Part of falling in love is physical intimacy. That's a big part of any serious relationship. But for while you're here, please keep consent issues in mind and actually that goes for forever, but it definitely should be something we all talk talk about and something we all think about." After the sit-down, everyone agreed to resume partying on the beach -- and we even got to see Carly Waddell and Evan Bass tie the knot! In a new interview with ET, DeMario said he feels "vindicated" now that his name was cleared on BIP. He explained: "I feel like they rolled enough of the tape. You can't show too much, because that's gonna disrespect Corinne and I, and I just feel like it wouldn't be the best or the classiest thing to do. But, they showed enough" Adding: "The public, they need to see something. I think they just needed to see [that] she's lucid. I'm lucid. We're swimming around. We're having fun. We're friends. It wasn't like I'm some predator who was at the bar waiting for the girl to get extremely drunk, then I'm like, 'Oops! Let me pounce on her.' No, it was very mutual and, in fact, she was a little bit of the aggressor in it, and I love how they painted the picture and the story of us actually talking, mingling, getting to know each other ... I do wish [they explained more], Like, that very moment of us getting into the pool and everything, that's when we had kinda got, you know, a little more cozier, so to speak. Everything happened and then we were just finished." One of the things that made him most upset about this whole ordeal was the effect it had on his family: "I feel guilty, because my mom didn't sign up for this, and she's been getting harassed, people tweeting at her, on her Instagram saying, 'Your son's a rapist.' That was the part I was most sad about. I feel like I created this for my family, in a sense, by being a little reckless. And I just want to say I'm sorry to them." And: "The human race failed me, because instead of waiting to see what happened, people were already painting me as this horrible villain, and they were slut-shaming Corinne, and it wasn't the case. It was just very, like, 'Oh, Corinne was like this in a past season. So, she's like this, and DeMario is black, and the media has portrayed African Americans like this for so many years, so he's that'... Do you guys not think about the people whose lives you're ruining?" There was even a moment that left Jackson -- who confessed to losing over 20 pounds and sought a therapist after the scandal -- feeling "suicidal, but not like the suicidal that you might think": "I never thought, 'Oh, I'm gonna kill myself,' but it crossed my mind. 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." Wow. We're just so happy this whole thing is over.

Related: Corinne & DeMario Kiss & Make Up For The Cameras! However, the 26-year-old businesswoman would only give the former Bachelor a second chance if he was willing to change. "If I saw him getting back to the way he was when I first stepped out of the limo, I would seriously consider giving him a chance... I would meet up with him, have coffee, talk to him and see how he is. He just broke up with his fiancée; it can't be easy." Towards the end of their season, Olympios noticed a jarring shift in his personality, which felt like "a slap in the face." "We clearly had strong chemistry... I was falling so hard and I remember when he changed completely. I went up to him, cameras not rolling, and was like, 'I just want to give you a hug before the night ends,' which is something we normally did. He was like, 'K, well, I'm gonna go give out this rose now.' And I was like, 'Whoa.' It was a slap in the face, like, 'I'm too busy for you right now.'... I don't know why he got like that. ... I feel like [in the beginning] I saw a different side of him than what [he] shows right now."' Corinne's comments may come as a surprise since she has been seen out several times with controversial BIP costar DeMario Jackson. In fact, the two attended Maxim's annual Halloween costume party over the weekend. However, the reality TV starlet told US Weekly at the event that she and Jackson are simply "really good friends." Of course they are... [Image via FayesVision/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.

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.].....»»

On Monday, it was reported that the Mad Men alum is now dating former Bachelor Nick Viall. This relationship update comes only five months after Viall split from fiancée Vanessa Grimaldi. Well, well. Related: Arie Says Three Awkward Goodbyes On The Bachelor Apparently, the twosome have only just started dating, but Jones previously admitted (on several occasions) to having a crush on the 37-year-old. In fact, it's said Jones and Viall got together after she discussed her Bachelor superfan status with James Corden on The Late Late Show. A source spilled to Page Six: "They've been dating for about two months. She went on ‘The Late Late Show' in ­mid-November and said Nick had reached out to her and tried to get her to lip-sync battle with him. She declined, but then he asked her out to a drink and she accepted. They've been seeing each other since." Looks like Nick's MANY stints on Bachelor nation shows have paid off. LOLz! On how she felt about Viall in general, Jones previously told Corden: "You don't know if you like him or if he's a scumbag, but that's why I'm attracted to him, maybe." Well, it appears that January has figured out that she likes him! Reportedly, Nick celebrated the blonde stunner's 40th birthday with her, and some of her former Mad Men costars, at Inkwell in El Lay on Saturday. Nick isn't the first Bachelor nation alum to nab a celebrated actress girlfriend as Wells Adams is currently dating Modern Family star Sarah Hyland. What a world we live in...

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

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.].....»»

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.].....»»

On Corinne and Michael's blossoming love, an insider spilled: "They've only been together a month or so." So it's still fresh, got it. This would explain why Team Corn's fearless leader's rep denied that the pair are romantically linked. The spokesperson noted to the mag: "While they know one another, they are not dating."

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

Bachelor In Paradise plans to address their controversy head on.

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.

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.].....»»

And it appears as though Viall is also going through a hard time as he recently told Us Weekly: "In times that aren't great, you have to kind of spend time with your loved ones. I'm lucky enough to have friends outside of L.A. I'm heading back to Chicago this weekend, which I think will be good for me. I'm trying to stay positive, being around friends and family. It helps me stay positive. And you know, what helps me is just kind of believing in yourself. It's obviously easy to get insecure and feel bad about yourself. You get in your head about things when things aren't working out for you." It probably doesn't help that Nick's relationship with Vanessa was the Wisconsin native's FOURTH attempt at finding love via the Bachelor franchise. As for his current feelings for Grimaldi, the 36-year-old promised that they're "of course" still friends. He continued: "I still love her very much. I'm not afraid to say that. I like to try new things, get out of my comfort zone. I know I have a lot of work to do in that arena. And it's fun to try and I always appreciate the opportunity to try new things and that's been a lot of fun." On how he's coping with the split, Andi Dorfman's ex explained: "I'm always trying to stay busy, especially right now with things. My friends, my family and Vanessa and I are still very much each other's support system. We're trying to do that and it's a challenge at times, but we still realize that we're there for each other." Awwwww. Oh, and for all you Nick fans out there, the businessman says he still thinks love is in his future. What a good attitude.

On Wednesday evening, the Bachelor in Paradise alums were spotted leaving the TAO restaurant in Hollywood together. Well, well!! Related: Chris Soules Wants Fatal Car Accident Case Dismissed The twosome were previously at odds after their sexual encounter on the BiP set caused the show to be shut down temporarily. Warner Bros. even investigated those involved with production for "sexual misconduct." Olympios and Jackson became further estranged when Nick Viall's ex called herself a "victim," leaving many to assume that she meant the Bachelorette vet took advantage of her. The duo later worked out their issues during the Paradise reunion and seemingly forgave one another. It appears they've really moved on as Corinne was all smiles as she and DeMario left the El Lay hotspot. We're just happy that this drama has officially come to an end. [Image via ABC.].....»»
