Miami's Corinne Olympios Backtracks On 'Bachelor In Paradise' Sexual Assault

"And I wish you all the best and I'm just.I'm sorry".

At the start of her sit-down with Harrison, Olympios admitted she was extremely nervous but that she was "doing a lot better". I had to go through it, too. It was really just a rough time for my family.

ABC has not provided details about the producers or what motivated them to file their complaints.

The reality TV star is speaking up about that Bachelor in Paradise scandal. Jackson gave his side of the story last week, and now it's Olympios' turn. "I was a victim of, you know, just being blown into the media and having people make these insane assumptions and judgments about what happened that day", she said. "But I didn't know you were not supposed to drink on", she said during her interview. "The combination of the two was not good".

"I definitely am weaning off that medication".

"The media wants to paint you a certain way that you know you're just not". In her recollection, she blacked out from drinking too much alcohol while on medication, thereby making her encounter with DeMario a complete blur. That, however, was the most negative thing she said about him-and she too reserved scorn for the same target that Bachelor in Paradise has made a decision to aim at. "It completely unbalances you, it's just insane".

Jackson recounted his own version of the events after filming on the show was suspended.

The military announced the casualties on August 25, saying the attacks took place overnight on police and border outposts. That's where about 100 people from three villages, Thabeit Taung, Kin Chaung and Thabawh Chaung, have taken refuge, too.


"It was hard because I know who I am", Jackson said. "I honestly don't feel like he did anything wrong, especially because everybody thought that I was just, you know, having fun and being Corinne..."

"There's no way for you guys to know that [I] was mentally checked out, like, 'Corinne's not here right now, ' which is beyond scary".

She added: "So it really just caused a awful, frightful blackout. We were just really trying to get to bottom of everything". "That's what I'm a victim of".

Olympios detailed what she was able to recall from Day One of BIP, when production was stopped due to reports of sexual misconduct. Television concluded their investigation and resumed filming. According to her, while she was not taking sides, Goode knew that the allegations against Jackson were not true. "It was like I went, like, under anesthesia and then just, like, woke up". "I'm not what you're thinking right now". "I would hope that if a producer, you know, saw anything that they were uncomfortable with, with anyone, they would do the proper investigations".

What did you think about Corinne's interview with Chris Harrison? Let's just whatever, and the next thing I know, DeMario's saying this, this, and this, and I'm like, 'Why?'. She adds about Jackson, "I never was mad at you or blaming you for anything".

Corinne said she wished the situation could have been handled differently, and she wanted DeMario to know that she respects him and is so sorry for what he had to go through. I have nothing against you.
