I knew it. I knew it. (And, uh, SPOILER ALERT!) When I heard that one of “The Bachelor” contestants was auffed from the show for getting cozy with a producer, I just had a feeling that it was Rozlyn Papa, the blonde model who wouldn’t let us forget that she’s a model. Now Rozlyn has come forward to say that, yes, she was the one who got booted from the show. But she swears it’s not what it sounds like. “I did not have a sexual relationship with a producer,” she told RadarOnline.com. She says she was technically booted for an “inappropriate relationship.” “What they mean by inappropriate relationship is not what inappropriate relationship means in the real world,” she says. “This is a TV show and it’s made for entertainment, but it is a far cry from reality. I know that things on television weren’t always as they seemed, but I had no idea the extent of the show manipulation.”One other slightly misleading bit of info regarding this scandal: Chris Harrison had said that the bachelorette in question was a “finalist.” But really, it appears that Rozlyn gets booted next episode. Meaning that Jake didn’t whittle the contestants down to three girls, only to find out one of them had a wandering eye. No, he was technically courting 15 women at the time—so can he really be shocked that Rozlyn wanted to court two men?
The identity of the producer in question has not yet been revealed, but we do know that he got fired for the incident. Rozlyn says they aren’t together anymore but are still friends. “I am going to hold my head high, I do not regret anything that happened,” she says.
So what do you think—is this the scandal of the century or no big deal? Personally, I’m just bummed that what appears to be the most exciting part of the season will be done after episode two. [RadarOnline.com]
