That's why I wonder if they were dating before and that whole part of her being grossed out was just for show.

Either that or they each had a role to play.

Carly could donate a million dollars to feed starving children, rescue 5,000 abandoned animals and cure cancer and I'd STILL consider her a nasty, insulting wench.   If we never see either of those weirdos again, I'll be happy.

@CindyBee  is anything spoilerish for the bachelorette in the article?

No not at all.  Just that guys from her season will be on.

Amanda & Josh are still "off"...

http://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/amanda-stanton-having-a-hard-time-after-josh-murray-split-w482221

I love this...

Quote

For now, Stanton is learning to adjust to life as a single woman and has turned to dating apps. "I feel like this is the age where it gets really hard," she admitted to Us. "I remember a couple years ago, I was like, 'Online dating is so weird. I would never do that.' And now it's like, 'I need to do that to meet someone. I get it now!'"

So she doesn't "get" online dating, but she does get going on TV to compete for a man.

ET reports that Stanton, who finished fourth on Ben Higgins' season of The Bachelor, as well as the breakout star of Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor Corinne Olympios and JoJo Fletcher's runner-up Robby Hayes, will all be heading to Mexico for filming in the next few weeks. They're joining previously confirmed cast member Raven Gates, Nick's runner-up.

I swear if she whines about how much she misses her kids...

She did the opposite last season. She was skyping with them and they were telling her they missed her, and she was like, "aw, but this place is so pretty, don't you want mommy to stay longer?"

Her husband really does just need to take full custody, because those kids would be better off away from this trainwreck!

Maybe her kids don't care that much.  They're still young, not in all day schools. They go with her on a lot of her travels, so her being away for a couple of weeks is nothing new for them.  

We all had this same conversation when she was on Ben's season, then yet again when she was on BIP.  She is a mom who spends time away from her kids, period. 

Some people think that's neglectful and harmful, some think it fosters independence and self-reliance.  I'm with the latter group.  

But regardless, her girls look happy & healthy.  If they weren't, I think the media would have ferreted that out by now.

But is that because of her or their father and the other family members she keeps leaving them with? I was raised by a single parent so I don't believe in society judging women for not being with their kids 24/7. People have to work and make a living and no one should apologize for that. But YMMV, I judge a woman who keeps leaving her young kids, one of whom has a chronic condition, to go famewhore on television. There is no reason for Amanda to go on BIP other than wanting a paycheck and isn't that what all her shilling is already for?

At least I hope it's only for a paycheck and not to actually get engaged to another man since we saw how well that last one worked out. Also, from what I've seen they don't seem to be with her on a lot of her travels. I'm pretty sure they were nowhere around when she was clubbing for a week wherever she was with Lauren, then there was the music festival weekend she went to where they were also not present and the daughter with asthma had an attack that led to her father taking her to the hospital.

They also have an involved father and I assume they are with him.  He may be glad she is making good money when away.  We really know nothing about their set up.

The Corinne Show will be tough sledding, especially given that she will be permitted, even encouraged, to drink her breakfast and all subsequent meals.  Let's set the over/under of sexual partners in sandy, sweaty, mosquito-ridden Mexico at 3.

Glad to see Kristina included.  In any other year she might have been an excellent choice for Bachelorette but, in a deliciously ironic twist, BIP is producing more solid couples than the Bachelor/Bachelorette so Rachel can have her fake-energy 'winner.'

Amanda's reappearance is somewhere between pathetic and desperate on her part and on the part of the producers.  Low IQ contestants are nothing new to this franchise but she is as shallow as a saucer.  Her dating banter consists mostly of 'Do you like me?  Cos I like you.'  Repeat ad infinitum, ad nauseum.  Amanda, you have not one but two daughters who are rapidly leaving the cute stage(s) behind.  First of all, they haven't seen much of you over the past few years and young men aren't going to fancy an abrupt shift from single and carefree to doing the school run and burning up entire weekends at soccer tournaments.  Your crying jags are a major turnoff as well.  It stands to reason that this is a better income opportunity than anything at home so here she is again.

Raven was probably another inevitable choice but it remains to be seen if she will be permitted to get the trowel for her makeup through TSA screening and Mexican customs.  This might be a good time to abandon the ill-advised gallon of foundation and rely on one's own features and youth.

Alexis - boring.

Lacey - boring and annoying.  Her scenery chewing at TWTA still rankles especially given her futile, forgettable, short stint on the Bachelor.

Danielle M - fool's gold.  Willowy blonde with not a lot going on behind the eyes and between the ears.  And these blokes will want curves, not straight lines, especially with everyone wearing next to nothing.

Taylor - Bachelor version of a pit bull.  Everyone's excited to buy the puppy, thinks it's cute, disputes all the bad publicity....and then wants to get rid less than a year later.  Obviously brought in to clash with everyone and anyone and no doubt she will play the part to the hilt.  

Jasmine - speaking of clashing, her finger will be wagging in the air more than the fronds of the palm trees.  Just an angry, resentful personality.

The blokes are nondescript to a fault.  The beard stubble thing is two years out of date already.  Buy a damned razor and use it.  Given their numbers and cold oatmeal personalities it goes without saying that the male intruders will all be threatening alpha types.

But casting and producer tricks can't overcome the primitive tribal nature of Homo sapiens.  M/F relationships and peer friendships that form early will be the strongest and late arrivals will have the usual difficulty in ingratiating themselves, stealing partners, getting dates, and being accepted in general.

It's a shame JoJo is taken.  Could have done with a few weeks of her traipsing around in swimwear.  Perhaps Astrid, Whitney and/or Danielle L will arrive late to dazzle the camera lens and to try to forget their encounters with Nick.

Kristina has a bloke back home. Not interested in seeing her on my screen.

And a former contestant at that, hell a former winner to be specific. Well maybe it's casual and they're both fine with that. Of course he was apparently visiting her in Kentucky just a week or two ago. But then Corinne is there and she's fully public on social media with her boyfriend/friend with benefit/whatever he is. I think at this point these people don't even bother hiding that this is just a way to further extend their 15 minutes and up their social media following for their shilling opportunities.

I don't think it's for either, I think she loves getting her face on TV & will lead her to bigger & better things.

This. Amanda is addicted to being on TeeVee, IMHO.   And wouldn't be surprised to learn that she's angling after a show for her and the kiddos.  Hopefully Dad Nick will keep that from ever happening but you never know, he might want that too.

Amanda only gets the big bucks for shilling if she maintains/increases her large number of followers. And the best way to do that is to keep appearing on TV as often as she can.

Basically this. She needs to maintain her followers interest. That's hard when she's no longer part of a "love story". So she's back to create a new one.

TMZ and E! News is reporting that production has been halted on Bachelor in Paradise due to misconduct on the set.

Interesting. I just read about this on another board but they were saying there was some weather situation and they had to relocate.  Wonder where they got that story from.

Amy Kaufman's twitter feed has the scoop; she's a writer for the LA times and would know.    Her twitter is AmyKinLA

Basically DeMario and Corinne got drunk, made a soft core porn and now a producer is suing for having to watch.  Or something like that.  Read Amy's twitter.

This franchise, under the guise of finding "true love", actively encourages reasonably attractive people to drink in excess while sequestered alone and then is surprised when two of those people, both unashamed of their sexuality and have no problem airing anything on tv decide to get hot and heavy? The same franchise that captioned Ben and Courtney in the ocean? 

I don't understand. I especially don't understand a producer suing over it. Seems like a judge would laugh before he threw out that case. There's gotta be something missing.

I think there are some puzzle pieces missing. People get it on frequently on the shows. Why would a producer sue?

Most importantly... what will Amanda do now for a paycheque?  And will she now have to go back and actually look after her own kids???  How disappointing for her.

This. Something is not adding up here. These are the people who put mikes up and set it up for there to be no question to the audience of what was going on between Nick and Kaitlyn and this was during their family hour airing of The Bachelorette.

And going home without a Neal Lane ring on her finger.  You know she wanted that back.

 

I'm sure Amy Kaufman is working hard to put together what happened so hopefully the vagueness of the producer's lawsuit is cleared up soon.

Why would anyone be offended or surprised by this?  It's not like these producers haven't seen people on their show have sex before.  I'm surprised it was with Dimario though - Corrine...not so much

The producer mustve thought Corrine was too drunk to consent. Also interesting they cancelled after showing corrine and demario the footage. Hasnt it been said that corrine has a bf and was doing all this for publicity? If Corrine saw the footage and agreed she was too out of it, well...ABC had to shut this thing down.

Demario already showed himself to be a sleazebag.   

The 3rd party complaint by the producer just sounds ridiculous, but if it was enough to shut down filming & send cast to the airport, it's got to be extra skanky.

"third party complaint" makes me think corrine threatened to sue the producer for allowing it and the producer filed first against the network to protect herself. corrine prob waived all her rights to sue ABC for anything but individual producers prob arent protected.

I realize details are still basically non-existent, but Amy Kaufman also tweeted that it was Corinne that initiated at least the initial kiss. Not to blame the victim (if she is one), if that's true AND given what we've seen of her on The Bachelor, I think it's be a pretty shitty thing to claim that she needed to be babysat and stopped. She's an adult, she should be able to make her own decisions and held accountable for her own actions, drunk or not.

It could get messy though, because if she's the one threatening to sue an individual producer for not stopping her, how far does that extend? What about the camera guy, or the set dresser, or the gopher that bought the alcohol? Seems like suing the show would have been her best option. I'm not sure suing any one person holds too much merit.

It doesn't surprise me in the slightest that Corinne is involved in all this.  She's an adult-sized baby who can't do anything for herself and makes a drama out of everything.  Go back to 'running' Daddy's company!

DeMario is responding to tweets so maybe Corrine isn't claiming anything, because, if she was, I'd think he would be laying low.  

I do think because Corrine and DeMario are in a controlled environment ABC should shut it down if one of the contestants are sloppy drunk and out of it and not just keep filming. JMO I haven't watched a lot of BIP so I don't really know how out of control things get.

Exactly. I tolerate the actual Bachelor and Bachelorette shows just to have a rough idea of people coming onto BiP. They better not ruin it. At least BiP never pretended to be classy when it's not.

Poor Amanda, indeed.

POOR Carly and Evan too. Where would they get married now?? Lol.

I don't think it's about them not stopping her, but rather about them filming her naked doing sexual things while she was wasted. I don't think they should get away with doing that, no matter what kind of contracts she signed. That's practically like filming people have sex with a spycam. If they were drunk enough they wouldn't have even realised they were on camera. Basically unless they were sober and consented to doing porn, it should never have been filmed.
