'Bachelor in Paradise' Star Ex No Longer Runs Through My Veins

1/24/2017 12:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

"Bachelor in Paradise" star Grant Kemp officially -- and finally -- removed his ex from his life ... with the stroke of a needle.

We're told Grant Kemp on Sunday hit up Black Heart Tattoo in San Fran where artist Moses Saarni inked over the old "Grace" tattoo -- a combination of his and 'BiP' ex Lace Morris' names.

You'll recall Grant and Lace got their tattoos on the show before he proposed in the season finale ... and promptly broke up 3 months later.

Grant's new tat -- a black rose -- sends a clear message: You're dead to me. Also, I made a huge mistake. Far as we know, Lace still has her ink.

We're guessing it'll be gone before sundown.

EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelor' star Corinne Olympios is getting some help in the villain department ... from the show's producers, according to Corinne's mom.

Corinne's mom, Peri, told us the show went all-out to push Corinne into the bad girl role -- and she gave up some specific examples ... including Nick Viall's now infamous run-in with the whipped cream

Peri also called out all the 'Bachelor' fans taking shots at her daughter. Apparently, they've dug up Peri's phone number ... something she's not going to let slide.

Mama Olympios doesn't play either.


'Bachelor' Contestant Corinne Whipped Cream on the Boobs Trick ... Total Fail!!!

1/16/2017 7:07 PM PST

"The Bachelor" star/villain Corinne Olympios was at it again Monday, wearing a flasher-style trench coat while trying to seduce Nick Viall with whipped cream on her cleavage ... it didn't work at all.

Nick gets all, "I-gotta-respect-the-other-girls" on her ... totally humiliating. She was so pissed she skipped the whole rose thing.

Corinne may have a "platinum vagine" ... but still, she might wanna play a little less aggressively.


'Bachelor' Contestant Corinne Parents Cool with Her Banging Tactics

1/3/2017 12:55 PM PST
EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelor' star Corinne Olympios makes no apologies for her aggressive pursuit of Nick Viall, and if Bachelor Nation wants to label her the villain ... she's cool with it and so are her parents.

We're told the family watched Monday's premiere together and Corinne's parents tell us they enjoyed it, and have no problem with contestants and fans hanging a scarlet 'V' on their little girl. They also said Corrine was happy with the label.

If you missed it ... she went in strong to get the first kiss from Nick -- and in a promo for upcoming episodes bragged about her "platinum vagine" and straight-up told Nick she's DTB.

Her folks say that's all good.

As for the "multi-million dollar business" Corinne says she runs ... we're told the family owns Miami-based Armor Garage -- a supplier of epoxy floor coatings, and yes ... she does actually work there. Mainly in sales.

No word if she sold Nick the "vagine" package.


'Bachelor In Paradise' Star Kareem's Got 'Bachelor' All Wrong ... Love Is Love Is Love, Wherever

1/3/2017 6:30 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was off the mark in his scathing critique of "The Bachelor," because love blossoms the same way on TV as it does in real life ... so says a contestant.

We got "Bachelor in  Paradise" star Jared Haibon -- who's been on 2 seasons of "BIP" and 1 season of "The Bachelorette" -- and he says the idea that people aren't their true selves on the reality shows mirrors what happens with everyone on a date  ... they put on a good but sometimes false face.

Jared's got a point ... but it seems like Kareem was getting at something a lot deeper than being phony for the cameras. Kareem rails on the shows, saying it portrays "cartoonish physical and mental restrictions" on relationships. He also comes close to calling the shows racist, saying, "If you're black ... you're usually kept around as a courtesy for a few weeks before being ejected."

Advantage, Kareem.

EXCLUSIVE

Chris Harrison got a second dose of reality when it comes to Nick Viall, and shocker -- people actually dig the next 'Bachelor.'

Chris was out in Hollywood canvassing the streets to see what fans think about Nick. You might recall he got mixed reviews -- to put it kindly -- when he was announced as the guy for season 21.

Somehow Nick's turned the tide in his favor. Chris thinks he knows what started the positive swing. He also gave us his take on Hollywood's most eligible bachelor ... present company included.

'Bachelor' Alum AshLee Frazier Engaged In a New York Minute!

11/7/2016 9:42 AM PST
EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelor' vet AshLee Frazier couldn't get it on a reality show, but she finally got a marriage proposal ... on the Brooklyn Bridge.

We're told the proposal went down Saturday right in the middle of a bunch of tourists who were checking out the bridge. The lucky guy is Aaron Williams, a Houston real estate developer AshLee's known for years. She moved back to H-town earlier this year, and they hit it off romantically.

We're told Aaron sealed the deal with an oval cut 3 ct. diamond, and dinner at hot spot Scarpetta. 

Sean Lowe, the 'Bachelor' from AshLee's season, is still married to Catherine Giudici.

Sooo ... win-win?

'Bachelor' Couple Ben & Lauren B. One-On-One ... in Paradise

11/1/2016 10:58 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

'Bachelor' couple Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell finally took in their first post-show vacay, but even downtime for them requires cameras.

Scene: Gansevoort Turks + Caicos for 10 days at a $845 a night oceanfront suite.

Action: They spent the week snorkeling, taking dips in the infinity pool and getting rubbed.

Twist: No word on when they're tying the knot. It's been 7 months since Lauren scored Ben's final rose, but her wardrobe might be a clue that wedding's not too far off.

'Unreal' Star Constance Zimmer My Show's No 'Bachelor' ... But We'll Take Chris Harrison

10/14/2016 7:04 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Fans hoping for an "UnREAL" and 'Bachelor' crossover just might get it ... according to the scripted drama's star, Constance Zimmer.

Constance plays the ruthless producer of a reality TV dating competition on "UnREAL" -- the comparisons to "The Bachelor" are pretty obvious, but she denies getting any inspiration from it.

Still, she's open to crossing the streams, and so is master of the rose ceremony, Chris Harrison.

Sounds like all that's left is to get some agents on the phone. 

'Bachelor' Nick Viall Hometown Date was a Deli-ght!!

10/9/2016 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Nick Viall's got puppy love written all over his face, arm in arm with a cutie brunette ... and TMZ has the video.

The 'Bachelor' was spotted in his hometown of Waukesha, WI where he was presumably on a hometown date ... meaning the chick on his arm reached at least one of the final stages on season 21 of "The Bachelor." 

Check out the vid ... Nick and the brunette get handsy as they make their way to Rochester Deli where they scarfed down a couple sandwiches, coleslaw and cookies.

Gotta love a girl who can eat!

'Bachelor' Nick Viall Drops Anchor For One-On-One Date

9/30/2016 12:30 AM PDT
EXCLUSIVE

Get ready to judge Nick Viall's skills as the new 'Bachelor' -- we got the first photos and videos of him on a one-on-one date, and it looks like he just might avoid becoming a 4 time loser.

We got Nick in action with a blonde named Danielle. He's shooting the 21st season of the show right now, and this date went down Monday night in an entertainment area called Balboa Fun Zone in Newport Beach, CA.

The couple made a flashy arrival by boat with their names in lights. After that low-key entrance they rode a Ferris wheel, then sat down for a candlelit dinner. To make things really romantic, production hired 3 off-duty cops -- for about $1,500 -- to keep away curious fans.

Unclear if Danielle scored a rose or if Nick simply scored ... but dude needs a slump buster. He already struck out twice on "The Bachelorette" and once on "Bachelor in Paradise."

'Bachelor' alum Samantha Steffen is used to the sand after a stint on "Bachelor in Paradise."

It didn't work out for Sam and her partner on the show, but judging from these pics she won't have a problem finding another suitor.
