Corinne & DeMario's Reunion After 'Bachelor In Paradise' Shows Once & For All That They're On Good Terms — PHOTOS
DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios hadn't been seen together since the initial filming of Bachelor in Paradise Season 4, but E! News reported that Corinne and DeMario reunited on Aug. 30 when they were spotted leaving the Nightingale Plaza club in Los Angeles at the same time. Their reunion occurred after Corinne's interview about the production shutdown aired on Tuesday night's episode of Bachelor in Paradise, and it seems DeMario and Corinne want the world to know that they are cool with each other and ready to move on.
During the filming of Bachelor in Paradise, a producer raised concerns about alleged sexual misconduct between DeMario and Corinne. Production was temporarily suspended while the network investigated the incident. Warner Bros. found no evidence of misconduct and resumed filming Season 4 without DeMario and Corinne. DeMario repeatedly denied the claims, and Olympios' lawyers conducted their own investigation, which also found no evidence of misconduct. Olympios released a statement saying she was satisfied with the outcome.
In interviews, both Corinne and DeMario have indicated that they are not resentful toward one another for what occurred, and they took that idea to a new level by posing for the paparazzi Wednesday night.
In an interview with Bustle before his own sit-down with Chris Harrison aired, DeMario said that he hadn't talked to Corinne since production was shut down and that they didn't see each other while filming their interviews, but that "she loves and respects me, and I love and respect her." And during her Bachelor in Paradise interview, the host asked Corinne what she would say to DeMario since they still hadn't spoken at the time. "I would want to tell him, 'Listen, I respect you as a human. I have nothing against you. I'm so sorry you had to go through this. I know exactly what it feels like, I had to go through it too. And I wish you all the best and I just — I'm sorry,'" she said.
And if the reunion pictures are any evidence, it sure looks like Corinne not only told DeMario that, but that they could still be buddies — or at least are OK enough with one another to pose for some lighthearted pictures.
E! News reported that Corinne said, "Get a good shot, b*tches," to the paparazzi during the photo shoot. "We're friends!" she said. "We never had bad blood."
With comments like those, it's clearer than ever that there really is no ill will between DeMario and Corinne and that they want to put their Bachelor in Paradise past behind them.
