Corinne Olympios explains her 'victim' comment and opens up about what really happened on 'Bachelor in Paradise'

Corinne Olympios opened up about her scandal with DeMario Jackson on “Bachelor In Paradise”

"It impairs your judgment".

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. "It completely unbalances you, it's just insane". After decided not to rejoin the cast in Paradise, she said, "I have definitely taken my time to deal with everything, heal and I just felt laying low was really the best thing for me to do".

"I did drink too much", Olympios revealed to GMA.

"The reason why I was taking DeMario's - not necessary taking DeMario's side but just wanting to speak out on what was being said about him was because those were lies, like that's not OK", Goode told Us Weekly.

I really just want people to know that I don't blame DeMario. "I just think, again, it was an unfortunate and annoying situation that had to go down and it really sucks". I'm so sorry you had to go through this. In response to rumors that he'll be joining Dancing With the Stars, Jackson said, "I would murder "Despacito" on that show". "Although I have little memory of that night, something bad obviously took place, which I understand is why production on the show has now been suspended and a producer on the show has filed a complaint against the production".

Still, when it came to the public shaming of Olympios and Jackson on social media and in the press, the damage was done. "I don't even know what to call it".

"I really don't remember much at all", Olympios said.

During the Tuesday's episode of "Bachelor in Paradise", Corinne also told Harrison that she mixed her drink with meds that caused her to experience a total blackout when she and DeMario had their sexual encounter in the swimming pool. She adds about Jackson, "I never was mad at you or blaming you for anything". For Thexton, Jackson is like a "30-year-old man child" who parties a lot, but he is not the type who would take advantage of a drunk woman. Watching the footage later, "It's like I'm watching not me, I'm watching someone else", she said. She added that she harbors no ill will toward him. "I'm like, 'Oh s-t!'"

Olympios did not specify what the medication was, but did say she was now "weaning" herself off of it after the negative effects it had on her body and mind.

Her message to Jackson now is: "I respect you as a human".

Olympios apparently has two new projects lined up, according to reports. "I was sad", Jackson said.

Corinne also said it was hard to gather her thoughts and talk to DeMario about what went down in Paradise because he was "so on the defense" and constantly talking to the media.

The incident also prompted the producers to impose new policies in the show pertaining to the contestants' drinking and on-camera consent.
