'Bachelor in Paradise' Star Corinne Olympios: "I Don't Blame DeMario"

'Bachelor in Paradise' Star Corinne Olympios:

When Corinne took the hot spot last night, she admitted to not remembering anything from the night because drugs and alcohol were involved.

When Harrison pointed out that she seemed totally normal to everyone there, Olympios once again alluded to the medication, saying it impairs judgment, among other things. "The combination of the two was not good".

"It can look like you're totally present and you're totally there", Olympios responded.

As for what she would say to DeMario now? Like Michelle Obama said, 'When they go low, you go high.' It was hard to go high.

Earlier in the day, Olympios, 25, went on Good Morning America to plead her case. "Everybody thought I was just having fun and being Corinne".

"I was a victim of, you know, just being blown into the media and having people make these insane, you know, assumptions and judgments about what happened that day".

She added: "So it really just caused a disgusting, terrible blackout".

The incident also prompted the producers to impose new policies in the show pertaining to the contestants' drinking and on-camera consent. After the fact, Warner Bros went through a serious investigation to find out what really happened between Olympios and Jackson. "I can't help but feel like maybe he thought that I thought that he did something to me".

The Miami native claims that she was blacked-out during the sequence of events that led to the show being shut down for almost two weeks, thanks to a bad combination of prescription medication and alcohol.

Blake Bortles has continued to look shaky for the Jaguars, and his future with the team may be even less certain. Marrone said Bortles impressed him with his communication on the sideline against the Panthers.

"I really just want people to know I don't blame DeMario", Corinne said.

She added to People magazine, in online excerpts posted Tuesday from an interview in the upcoming issue, "I never meant that I was a victim of DeMario". Jackson denied any wrongdoing and added the reports that said otherwise were character assassination. " 'I have nothing against you".

Last week, DeMario had his in-studio interview with Chris Harrison.

And if you can't get enough Corinne, she's apparently working on a reality show and a scripted series.

According to ABC, contestants are required to take an STD test and and complete an 800-question psyche evaluation. "We have suspended production and we are conducting a thorough investigation of these allegations". Warner Bros. later said that footage of the encounter "does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member" and it does not indicate that "the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy".

Production of the "Bachelor" spin-off was shut down in June after the producer complained.

Having concluded that no misconduct had transpired, the show resumed filming.

And in an interview with People, Olympios elaborates that she doesn't blame DeMario for anything - although she released a statement before about being a victim. When asked how she felt that she'd been a victim, Corinne explained that it was more about the media portrayal of her than anything else.

"I would love for everyone to have a better understanding of me and my side", Olympios told Harrison.
