Bachelor in Paradise 4

“Reader Emails” & “Bachelor in Paradise” to Resume Filming

Not an hour after my post yesterday where I said you’d be hearing that production had completed their investigation, found no wrong doing, and you’d be hearing an announcement any day now – Warner Bros. came out and basically said just that. So the only thing at that point to start discussing was “Where do they go from here?” With the statement saying that filming would resume on production, we got our answer pretty quick. I didn’t know how the logistics worked, and knowing they originally only had the resort until the 26th or 28th, could they get everybody back there so quickly, how easy it was to maybe extend their time at the resort, we didn’t really know how it was all going to play out. But here we are. I can report to you that EVERYONE who was still there when production was stopped is headed back to Paradise and will be there by tomorrow, with filming on the season resuming by this weekend. So yeah, I guess it was pretty easy to get people to come back there as soon as possible since most were chomping at the bit to be on. There are still plenty of things we don’t know in regards to what’s gonna get shown and what not, but I can tell you everyone will be back in Mexico by tomorrow and filming will resume by the weekend since they don’t need to do photo shoots, cast photos, etc since that was done already. Once everyone is there, they can jump right in. You’ve already seen plenty of them on IG mention they’re headed back.

As for DeMario and Corinne, I highly doubt either one will be going back, but I haven’t heard anything either way. I can’t see in a million years Corinne being asked back. DeMario, well, wouldn’t the ultimate storyline be if DeMario is asked back and he gets engaged at the end of this thing? Talk about a redemption story. It would almost be too good to be true – hence the reason I’d still be surprised if it happened. But I’ll let you know either way if either of them return. In terms of “Where are they going to pick up filming from?” That I don’t know. Do they use the footage of the three days that were filmed before production was shut down? Do they just start all over this weekend and re-create the dates that already took place? Do they just pick up right at the first rose ceremony that they were set to shoot when the complaint came in and they stopped filming? Nobody knows yet. I’m sure we’ll have those answers shortly. I mean, if I was able to give you the spoilers for the first 3 days of filming, I don’t see why at some point down the line I won’t have all your BIP spoilers for you this season. I had them for your first three seasons of it, so I’d be pretty surprised if I don’t get this season. We’ll see though.

Corinne’s lawyers have spoken out giving their response to Warner Bros. concluding their investigation. I mean, they wouldn’t be doing their jobs if they just said, “Yep. Nothing to see here. We’re done.” So they will now start their own investigation into things, and I’m sure they’ll keep us informed publicly on any findings they come across. Maybe Warner Bros. third party investigation was completely incompetent and Corinne’s lawyers will rip it to shreds and find a whole bunch of stuff that disputes it. Or her lawyers will conduct their investigation and find nothing further to do with the matter and it’ll go away. I guess in due time we’ll see. Let’s let them do their own investigation first, tell us their findings, then go from there before we start declaring we know everything that happened. Personally I don’t think they’ll find much, but then again, these are lawyers we’re talking about here.

One sentiment being shared a lot yesterday was that “Oh, this was all a publicity stunt for the show and it worked. Now more people are going to tune in.” Really? And you know this how? You can prove this? Look, it’s a very easy take to have. And you’re entitled to have that opinion. I just think it’s wrong. I think publicity stunts are done for shows that are dying, on the verge of cancellation, and whose ratings are suffering. BIP didn’t need to create a possible fake sexual assault on their set to generate interest in their show. It’s a summer hit for them. Why inconvenience location, cast, and crew for 10 days just to draw some publicity for a show that was already popular? Doesn’t make a whole hell of a lot of sense to me. But in reading some of the response yesterday, people who are convinced it was a publicity stunt are never going to be convinced otherwise. Just use your head people, that’s all I’m asking. That’s an awful lot to go through for something that wasn’t broken.

And finally before we get to “Reader Emails,” Michelle Money posted the trailer for the new movie she’s in called “By Any Means” on her IG yesterday. She plays a detective in a thriller about a kidnapped reality start. Or was she? Here’s the trailer if you missed it:

    God, I hope Corriane doesn’t come back. She is nauseating, trashy and doesn’t deserve anymore attention. But like you said, the even trashier cash me ousside girl is getting a show… geez what a world we live in.

    I think Corinne tried to be over the top in her season of The Bachelor to achieve a level of celebrity and her intent was to expand on that in BIP. I think this was her plan exactly and she’s loving being in the limelight. She’s a total narcissist but she’s not as smart as she thinks she is. I knew as soon as she was invited to participate in the show that she would once again be topless, straddling men, drunk and slutty…and she was. Her family must be so proud! Can she please go away now?

    What Corrinne is doing, is essentially what many others try to do on the show. But she doesn’t seem to have any sense of shame. She welcomes that bad publicity. So, she’s all in. She’s getting the attention she wants. But when you think about it, how is that different than Brittney Spears tongue kissing Madonna for attention? Or Miley Cyrus nude on a wrecking ball? Or the latest exploits of Kendall Jenner…. or any of the others in her family. The message has been out there that if you slut it up, you’ll be paid attention to. Corrinne is just the first from this franchise that’s been willing to go all the way for attention. Part of me feels sad for her, but she’s getting exactly what she wants. Look we live in a world where Omarosa is in the White House. Yeah, really. That’s our world.

    I agree, there are loads of females out here who have done the same or far worse. I don’t like it or agree with it, too many of them call it being a feminist, well not in my name please. As far feeling sad for Corrine, hmm no I can’t feel that for her, at most she was misguided and perhaps didn’t expect the bad press. She has milked her notoriety since filming The Bachelor for all its worth and seemed pretty much pleased with herself, I can’t even get my head around that one. What must her family think. I do hope this is the last of her reality stint that we see.

    There’s an article in the Online Daily Mail’s US showbiz about the franchise’s contracts. The article stated it wasn’t sure if the ones seen were the type all previous contestants have signed or whether they are new ones being introduced. Regardless, I would run a mile if I was presented with something like that to sign, just atrocious, but then so many would sell their soul just to be famous etc. Sad and tragic.

    @rob22 – This is completely different than the examples you cited.
    “Brittney Spears tongue kissing Madonna for attention? Or Miley Cyrus nude on a wrecking ball? Or the latest exploits of Kendall Jenner…. or any of the others in her family. ”
    Those women you mentioned take ownership and it doesn’t effect others. Britney kissing another woman / Miley naked doesn’t impact anyone else – and shouldn’t be judged. Quite frankly, if Corinne wanted to have sex with the entire cast, that’s on her. Dragging someone down with her is in an entire different league.
