Robby Hayes on Lincoln Adim 'The Bachelorette' Asks About Arrests ... How Did They Miss This?

6/14/2018 7:27 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

JoJo Fletcher's runner-up on her season of "The Bachelorette" can't figure out how Lincoln Adim got on the show, because the screening process probes for past crimes.

We got Robby Hayes Wednesday in Venice and asked if 'Bachelorette' producers need to do better background checks on their contestants ... in light of the fact Adim's sex crime arrest 2 years ago didn't raise any flags.

As we reported ... Adim had been convicted of and sentenced for indecent assault and battery days before Becca Kufrin's season premiered in May. He'd been accused of groping and grinding on a woman during a 2016 cruise. He must now register as a sex offender.

Robby is dumbfounded on how Lincoln slipped through the cracks. He's been through the process, and told us the pointed questions every contestant has to answer ... including the ones about arrests. He says Becca deserved to know about Lincoln and producers need to tighten up the background checks.

We broke the story ... Warner Bros., the studio behind the show, says Lincoln lied through his teeth, and the company that runs background checks missed his arrest.

Scheana Marie Look What the Tide Washed Up ... 'BiP' Hottie Robby Hayes!

5/23/2018 9:21 AM PDT

"Vanderpump Rules" star Scheana Marie's bathing suit says it best -- now that she's hooking up with another hot reality TV star ... in Hawaii -- yeah, "Living My Best Life" definitely applies here.

Scheana and "Bachelor in Paradise'' star Robby Hayes were strolling through the surf Tuesday in Oahu. Rumors started to swirl they were hookin' up back in March, but they both claimed they were just good friends. We'd say VERY good friends, based on these shots.

Scheana had previously been linked to Rob Valletta after her divorce from Mike Shay.

One thing Robby and Scheana can't deny -- they look good together.

'BIP' Alum Josh Murray Will You Accept This Kiss?

3/14/2018 12:40 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Josh Murray is living proof -- you can take a bachelor out of "Bachelor in Paradise" ... but he's not going to stop looking for love.

The ex-'BIP' star -- known for being engaged to 2 former 'Bachelorettes' -- still has full confidence in his pick-up game, based on this vid of him at a bar in Milledgeville, GA late Monday night. Problem is ... it looks like he's pretty rusty.

Josh was in town hosting a hospital charity event with the Children's Miracle Network earlier in the evening. He actually posed for a photo with the woman who was also a guest at the event.

Of course, the pic was taken before Josh started shooting his shot.

Sources close to Murray tell us they hit it off at the charity, and he took her out afterward to show her a good time. At the end of the night, though, it was the friendzone for Josh.

We can see that.

Corinne Olympios Arie Luyendyk Jr. Is 'Repulsive'

3/7/2018 6:53 AM PST

You know Arie Luyendyk Jr. has earned the Worst Bachelor Ever title when one of the franchise's most hated villains is throwing major shade his way.

We got Corinne Olympios leaving Craig's Tuesday night in WeHo with Jonathan Cheban, and when we asked her thoughts on Arie, she didn't exactly have nice things to say. Corinne is notorious for her own "Bachelor in Paradise" sex scandal, which debatably might've been topped by Arie dumping winner Becca Kufrin and weeks after proposing to runner-up Lauren Burnham while cameras were rolling.

Arie tried to do damage control on a live special Tuesday night called 'After the Final Rose,' but that didn't work. It takes time, just ask Corinne.

As for Becca ... she was named on the finale as the next 'Bachelorette' so she wins.

Corinne Olympios Meet My New Hunny!

2/19/2018 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Corinne Olympios has finally found her Hunny and it's not in DeMario Jackson, despite the two spending Valentine's Day together. 

We're told the "Bachelor in Paradise" star just got a new mini-Pomeranian pup, which she's named Hunny. Corinne got the pooch 2 weeks ago after plopping down a couple of G's.

Corinne already has a chow named Mookie, but wanted Mookie to have a companion since she's working a lot and often not home. 

Hunny was flown in from Tokyo, where the mini-Pom breeder is based. The two pooches look an awful lot alike, apart from the obvious size difference ...  they're already getting along just swimmingly.

As for DeMario, he ain't in the dog house. We're told the two are still "just friends." 

Sarah Hyland and Wells Adams We're Goin' Urban!!!

11/23/2017 7:38 AM PST

Sarah Hyland and new BF Wells Adams hit up Urban Outfitters Friday and found what they were looking for.

The freshly minted couple was perusing the aisles for clothes and housewares.  The "Modern Family" star and the "Bachelor" contestant have been seen out a lot recently.

They went to the Lakers game Tuesday night and were way more into each other than the game ... or so it seemed.

Even though Sarah was loving it, we're hoping he left the hat in the store.

'Bachelor' Producers Sued by P.A. You Asked If I Ever Had Anal Sex!!! WB Denies Allegations

10/30/2017 12:23 PM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

2:30 PM PT -- Warner Bros. tells us, "We take all allegations of workplace harassment very seriously. These allegations were brought to our attention and were thoroughly investigated earlier this year. Our findings did not support the plaintiff’s characterization of the events claimed to have taken place, which is why we are disappointed by the filing of this lawsuit."

The company that produces the 'Bachelor' franchise, along with several of its producers, has a sexual harassment case on its hands -- a former employee now claims producers repeatedly asked her sexually invasive questions that she says had nothing to do with the show.

Becky Steenhoek is suing Warner Bros. Entertainment and several producers from the show claiming they asked her gratuitous questions, including:

-- How often do you masturbate?

-- Do you own sex toys/dildos?

-- Have you ever had anal sex?

-- Do you enjoy giving hand jobs?

-- Is your vagina shaved? Do you have a landing strip?

-- Has a man ever got your "taco" talking?

Steenhoek says these questions were designed to embarrass her because of her "sexual inexperience and conservative views about sex."

She claims a week after complaining about the comments she was fired.

We reached out to Warner Bros. for comment ... so far, no word back.

'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.
