In a statement released on June 29, Corinne Olympios announced that she will not be filing any type of lawsuit against Disney/ABC or the producers of ‘Bachelor in Paradise’. She also has announced that she will not be returning to the reality dating (aka hookup) series.
Her complete statement, according to Hollywood Life reads,
“In light of the overwhelming amount of misinformation that has been spread in the media, I want to clarify a few things. My intent over the past few weeks has been to learn and understand what happened on June 4. While I never filed complaints or accusations against anyone associated with Bachelor in Paradise, my team and I felt it was very important to be thorough in getting to the bottom of what had occurred. I felt victimized by the fact that others were judging me through conflicting and unsubstantiated reports, while I myself had no recollection of the events that transpired.
My team’s investigation into this matter has now been completed to my satisfaction. I am also happy about the changes that have been made to the production of Bachelor In Paradise. While I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to have been a participant on The Bachelor, and while I was invited to return to Bachelor In Paradise when production resumed, I respectfully made the decision not to return.
I understand the media’s interest in this story, and I greatly appreciate my fans’ concerns for my well-being, but I think it is best if I keep any further thoughts private for now.”
Now that filming has restarted, one has to ask, why would they ask her back? Better yet, why would she even think that she would? Doesn’t she have a boyfriend? She and DeMario Jackson have been a serious stain on a program that, even though extremely popular, has also been seriously criticized.
In case you don’t know the story, BiP was filming in Mexico. The cast of cast-off ‘Bachelors’ and ‘Bachelorettes’ were seen in photos drinking and having a ‘good time’. But, a scandal ensued when film was seen of cast mates Olympios and Jackson doing the nasty and nastier in the pool! The sight of their behavior caused a producer to bolt and scream lawsuit. So, they halted filming and sent the cast packing.
And if that wasn’t enough, Olympios started crying ‘I was drunk! I had no control over what happened! Accusing Jackson of taking advantage of her in a drunken state. Silly rabbit, it was all on film. You not only knew what was happening, but was a more than willing participant. And poor DeMario, ever the “gentleman” or fool, never called her out on it. In fact, he still defends her, (leaning more and more towards fool) telling E!:
“The minute you release this black man’s face and this white girl’s face, before either of us commented on it, I was already like a rapist and I was like, excuse my French, a n—er, a monkey, and she’s a whore and a slut. They were slut-shaming her because of what she did last season with Nick. People were just angry, like it was like black people didn’t like her and white people didn’t like me, and people were mad because instead of waiting for the facts to come out.”
Well, now we know neither Corinne nor DeMarios will be returning for Season 4 of ‘Girls Gone Wild’…I mean, ‘Men Behaving Badly’…oh pooh!…’Bachelor in Paradise’. So let the games begin!
