Corinne Olympios says she "was not a victim of Demario"

"I never once thought that I would be here, today, speaking to you guys, in the middle of a insane scandal", Jackson said. I strongly believe he had no bad intentions at all. "It's just so heart-sinking to have to go through something like that", Corinne told Chris.

Bachelor in Paradise airs Mondays and Tuesdays (8 p.m. ET) on ABC. The producer was concerned Corinne was too intoxicated to consent.

Olympios said she is now "doing a lot better", and she wants "people to know that I don't blame DeMario".

"I definitely, um, I am weening off that medication". "It can look like you're totally present and you're totally there, and your mind is nowhere near it", Olympios said.

After receiving backlash from Bachelor Nation fans and former costars, Olympios clarified a few things - including what she meant by calling herself a "victim".

It's unfortunate that my character and family name has been assassinated this past week with false claims and malicious allegations.

However, Harrison said that numerous cast members and producers were not able to pick up on the blackout because she seemed to be acting normal.

Yes, DeMario could have backed away knowing Corinne was really drunk.

"Before I even had a chance to gather my thoughts and collect myself and talk to him or talk to anybody, he kind of just went for it and was so on the defense", she said of Jackson "running" to the media initially. We were just chilling.

It adds that the attackers " blatantly ignored American law enforcement commands to cease the violence ". Two of the defendants were arrested in June and face an initial court hearing on September 7.

Earlier in the day, Olympios, 25, went on Good Morning America to plead her case.

Then suddenly, Warner Bros. announced it found no misconduct had taken place, and production would resume. "I honestly don't feel like he did anything wrong", she explained.

"I was mentally checked out.which is beyond scary, but it is what it is I guess. I need to just be more aware of my surroundings".

She went on to add, "I don't think it's anyone's fault".

At the end of the interview, Olympios blamed "the media" for the situation, saying, "I really want people to know, I don't blame DeMario".

Both Corinne and DeMario chose not to return to the series following the investigation.

No news on why she went on a dating show if she was in a relationship.

Corinne Olympios was finally ready last night to tell her side of the Bachelor in Paradise scandal that blew up the media this summer. Corinne was afraid to make the situation any worse since DeMario seemed so worked up. I don't blame DeMario. You know who you are inside, and it's so hard that these people have become experts on you and your life and think they were there and know exactly what happened. But I didn't know you were supposed to not drink on [the medication].

"I was a little bit nervous to talk to him, because he did run to the media, and I didn't want to add fuel to the fire", she said of lying low in the beginning.
