Corinne Olympios feels like she just can’t win when it comes to how her relationship with DeMario Jackson is perceived by the public. As fans of Bachelor in Paradise definitely know, the two starts were at the center of a highly publicized production shutdown over the summer following a misconduct issue.
After pics of her and DeMario hanging out at Disneyland hand in hand surfaced this morning, Olympios felt like she had to clarify the situation.
‘DeMario and I are close friends. We’re not dating. We were hanging out with a group at Disneyland, and I have no problem holding hands with any of my friends. We both know neither of us made the complaint that started everything, so why would we not be friends? We have been able to move forward, and he is like a brother to me,’ Corinne explained.
The reality TV star has been really busy lately as she’s working on her own fashion line in addition to developing two TV shows.
Aside from that, what would really make her life easier would be if the press gave her a break about her scandal with DeMario already.
Olympios also claimed that the pics of the two of them at Disneyland were cropped in such a way that it would look a lot more intimate than it really was.
‘We get criticized if we aren’t friends, and criticized if we are,’ she said
