'Bachelor' Alums Stripper Life's Ruff But We'll Do It for Charity!!!

10/7/2017 12:00 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

DeMario Jackson and a bunch of other 'Bachelor' alums apparently love it doggy style ... when it comes to charity auctions.

Five former 'Bachelor' contestants threw on their fanciest garb Thursday night and stripped, sung and danced at the "Cocktails for Canines" fundraiser benefiting the Tri-County Humane Society in Florida. 

Vinny Ventiera hosted the shindig with his pals Josh Murray, Daniel Maguire, Ryan Beckett and DeMario ... all of whom helped raise $10k. 'Bachelorette' star Luke Pell also put on a striptease show last year.

The winning bids got dinner and a night out on the town with their man.

No word if a Fantasy Suite was included. 

Corinne & DeMario We're Not Dating!! Disney Pics are a Fairy Tale

9/26/2017 12:50 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson looked like they were living happily ever after at Disneyland, but the pics don't tell the REAL story ... not to DeMario, anyway.

Sources close to DeMario tell TMZ ... he and Corinne are NOT dating or even hooking up, despite the cozy Disney shots of the ex-"Bachelor in Paradise" stars holding hands and getting touchy-feely on rides.

We're told the photos snapped a brief moment where DeMario and Corinne just happened to touch hands for a split second, but it definitely wasn't any kind of romantic hand-holding as implied in the photos.

Our sources say even DeMario's fake chomping at her arm was just playful banter between friends. Of course, it's no small feat for them to reach friendship level ... considering she all but insinuated he had sexually assaulted her.

We're told DeMario doesn't want this getting twisted -- he's single ... straight-up.

Corinne & DeMario Hooking Up Again This Time at Disneyland!!!

9/26/2017 7:31 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson are making the leap -- from showstopping sex in a pool to hand-holding in The Happiest Place on Earth! Yeah, it's kind of a downgrade.

The ex-"Bachelor in Paradise" stars hit up Disneyland on Monday, and the PDA made it at least look like Corinne and DeMario are dating. They even kept up the playful cuddling inside It's a Small World ... which says a lot.

Corinne and DeMario -- whose now-infamous sexual exploits temporarily shut down 'BiP' -- reunited last month, but our BS detector was WAY OFF the charts. After all, she all but insinuated he'd taken advantage of her sexually.

If they're faking a relationship now ... a full day at Disneyland is a looong way to go.

Corinne Olympios Reunited And It Feels So Fake!!!

8/31/2017 6:44 AM PDT

Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson hooked up again -- literally -- and DeMario said something during the encounter that registered in a big way on our BS detector.

The "Bachelor in Paradise" stars were leaving Nightingale Wednesday night in L.A. where Corinne and DeMario were ALL OVER each other. She hugged, climbed and kissed him.

Listen closely as DeMario says, "My PR is gonna hate this in the morning."

As you know ... Corinne claimed she had no recollection of a sexual encounter she had with DeMario during 'BiP' filming, and that triggered a sexual assault investigation. Warner Bros. concluded she was lucid the entire time.

Corinne Olympios Talks 'BIP' Scandal ... I Never Blamed DeMario!

8/29/2017 7:22 PM PDT

Corinne Olympios finally spoke out about her "Bachelor in Paradise" scandal with DeMario Jackson, and wanted it known ... he did nothing wrong. 

Corinne sat down with Chris Harrison on Tuesday's 'BiP' tell-all episode and confirmed TMZ's story -- she mixed meds with booze and suffered a hard blackout when she hooked up with DeMario.

Chris also confirmed our reporting about Corinne appearing very with it during the ordeal that eventually shut down production-- so much so producers thought she was fine.

The bigger takeaway ... Corinne officially exonerated DeMario of any wrongdoing and said there's no ill will on her end. She also said she never blamed him for anything.

In hindsight ... Corinne calling herself a victim probably didn't help the situation -- something Chris didn't press her on. But, as she puts it ... it is what it is. 

'Bachelor in Paradise' Cast Turns on Corinne, Defends DeMario ... Post-Hookup

8/15/2017 6:48 PM PDT

The remaining cast of "Bachelor in Paradise" made it clear whose side they're on after the hookup between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson that shut down production ... and it ain't really hers. 

Chris Harrison had a sit-down with the rest of the cast members on part 2 of the "BiP" premiere Tuesday night, and after a lot of beating around the bush, Taylor Nolan finally spat it out ... everyone there is responsible for themselves and how much they drink. 

Most of 'em seemed to piggy-back on the sentiment, which was clearly aimed at Corinne -- who, as we reported, blacked out in a hookup with DeMario and felt she lost the ability to consent. She later went on to call herself a victim in the ordeal. 

The cast also made it clear that the backlash DeMario caught during the controversy was in part due to him being a black man ... and Corinne being a white woman. 

While some cast members did defend Corinne for the slut shaming she experienced, the bigger takeaway here from these folks is ... poor DeMario. 

DeMario Jackson Show the 'BIP' Footage I'm All for It!!!

8/12/2017 1:06 PM PDT

DeMario Jackson's nothing if not confident ... that the footage of the controversial hot tub incident between him and Corinne Olympios will clear his name.

The "Bachelor in Paradise" outcast hit up Doheny Room in Weho Friday night clearly looking to make a statement with his wardrobe -- he wants 'BIP' producers to show the tape.

Unfortunately for DeMario ... Warner Bros. says the infamous hot tub footage that shut down production of the reality show will not be aired.

A trailer for the upcoming season of 'Paradise' did tease DeMario and Corinne's hookup, though ... and we're still awaiting their reunion show. So no -- we're not done with DeMario yet.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Corinne, DeMario Pool Footage ... Shown For First Time

8/8/2017 6:38 AM PDT

Corinne Olympios looked more than willing and fully conscious when she led DeMario Jackson into a pool as they started to hookup while shooting "Bachelor in Paradise."

A scene that appears to be part of the controversial incident -- where Corinne essentially claimed sexual assault because she says she was not conscious -- was teased Monday night during the 'Bachelorette' finale. It shows Corinne leading DeMario into the pool in the daylight, with some of her fellow cast members close by ... and cameras rolling.

It seems Corinne's speaking coherently and looks very with it ... much like we reported. It's unclear, though, how much time passed between this pool scene and the alleged sexual misconduct. Her legal team says the footage that alarmed a 'BiP' producer -- which eventually shut down production -- took place in a hot tub, not the pool.

We've confirmed that's accurate, and Warner Bros. says that hot tub footage will not be aired.

We broke the story ... Corinne and DeMario will not come face-to-face in the 'BiP' reunion show. Corinne has admitted to mixing alcohol and prescription drugs, which she says led to a quick blackout.

Corinne Olympios Admits Mixing Prescription Drugs with Booze Before DeMario Hookup

8/8/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios was popping pills and mixing booze during "Bachelor in Paradise" filming before the infamous swimming pool hookup with DeMario Jackson ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to production tell TMZ ... Corinne made the admission during Saturday's taping of the 'BiP' reunion. We're told she didn't elaborate on what kind of Rx, but she's adamant -- ingesting the pills that day and mixing it with booze intensified her drunkenness, which she says led to her blacking out. 

TMZ broke the story ... production shut down following allegations of sexual misconduct in a pool. A producer felt Corinne was incapable of giving consent, but the video and interviews with various members of cast and crew led Warner Bros. honchos to conclude ... she knew what she was doing.

It's interesting ... when 'BiP' filming resumed, new policies were implemented, such as checking bags for prescription drugs, legal or otherwise. Now it makes sense.

Obvious question -- why'd she mix meds with booze? We're told Corinne pled ignorance.

'Bachelor in Paradise' Reunion Corinne and DeMario Won't Come Face-To-Face

8/6/2017 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

"Bachelor In Paradise" is hyping a one-on-one showdown between Corinne Olympios and DeMario Jackson, but it will actually be more like Michael Phelps' race against a great white shark.

Sources close to production tell us Corinne and DeMario did NOT come face-to-face when the reunion show taped Saturday. While promoting the show, host Chris Harrison has said he'll be talking with both of them together ... insinuating he'd be mediating/refereeing.

While fans would eat that up ... it ain't gonna happen. We're told DeMario came out for a solo sit-down with Harrison, but left before Corinne did her one-on-one. We're told neither were briefed on plans to be onstage at the same time.

Our DeMario sources tell us he's no longer interested in seeing Corinne face-to-face to hash out the aftermath from their pool sex encounter -- mostly because he doesn't think she would be genuine.

DeMario Jackson Negotiating with 'Dancing With the Stars'

7/31/2017 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Turns out controversial "Bachelor In Paradise" star DeMario Jackson may not be done with reality TV -- TMZ has learned producers are seriously considering him for a "Dancing With the Stars" slot.

Sources close to production tell us the show reached out to DeMario's publicist weeks ago, which explains why he was already fully campaigning to be in the ballroom when we asked about it last week.

We're told nothing's signed ... they're still negotiating, but hard to imagine a scenario where DeMario doesn't take this opportunity.

DeMario didn't return to the 'BiP' set in Mexico following the oral sex controversy with Corinne Olympios that shut down production, but he will be on the reunion episode.

Corinne Olympios Could Face DeMario on 'BiP' Reunion ... She's Showing Up!!!

Breaking News

Corinne Olympios could come face-to-face with DeMario Jackson on the "Bachelor in Paradise" reunion show, 'cause she'll be there ... according to Corinne herself.

Corinne put out a statement Wednesday, saying, "I am very happy to be appearing on the Bachelor In Paradise Special" which her rep confirmed was, in fact, the reunion show that'll take place in the near future ... seeing how filming has wrapped.

We broke the story ... DeMario -- who was at the center of the sex scandal on the show with Corinne -- will also be at the 'BiP' renuion show ... and he wants to settle things with Corinne once and for all.

Unclear if she plans to talk to DeMario directly, but we're guessing ... duh.
