EXCLUSIVE: Corinne Olympios & DeMario Jackson Set Date for First Reunion Since 'Bachelor in Paradise' Scandal
By Jennifer Drysdale
DeMario Jackson and Corinne Olympios' sit-down interview is coming sooner than we thought.
A source close to Bachelor in Paradise production tells ET that the reality stars will come face to face to film their interviews with host Chris Harrison on Saturday. Jackson is expected to be interviewed first, before Olympios is brought out to tell her side of the story.
According to the source, Jackson has not spoken with Olympios, and isn't "worried" about their meeting.
"DeMario isn't going to let any of this get him down anymore. Since his name was cleared, he's moved on. He knows his friends and family are behind him and that's what is important,” the source reveals. “He hasn't spoken to Corinne ahead of the taping, and he's not worried about seeing her -- he's over it."
For her part, Olympios has stayed mum on the scandal. Outside of official statements, she has not spoken about what happened and has been posting very minimally on her social media. Instead, she has been surrounding herself with girlfriends; last night she stepped out in all white for a girls' night with her friend, singer Symon, at Delilah in West Hollywood.
Another source tells ET that Saturday's event is not the Bachelor in Paradise reunion show -- this taping will only address the controversy surrounding Jackson and Olympios that halted production on season four of the series earlier this summer.
ET caught up with Harrison last month, when he revealed he was unsure about how the sit-down talks would go after Jackson's fiery debut on The Bachelorette: Men Tell All.
"I don't know how that dialogue's going to [go]," the longtime Bachelor host said, telling ET he was "surprised" by Jackson's "bad choices" during the Men Tell All taping. "I thought I had an idea before tonight, but I also thought we'd have a better moment than we had tonight. So, I don't know. Now I'm not really sure how it's going to be. We'll see."
