Corinne Olympios of 'Bachelor in Paradise' says she's a media victim

"I did drink too much", she admitted. "All of a sudden people became an expert on the situation and what was just awful to deal with".

Corinne Olympios has absolutely no memory of the incident with DeMario Jackson that shut downBachelor in Paradise production and launched a media firestorm, but she isn't blaming him for anything.

As previously reported, Warner Bros. temporarily suspended production on the popular spinoff series in June after a producer filed an allegation of sexual misconduct on set between the fashion designer and Jackson. "But I was also on a medication that severely blacks you out and impairs your judgment and messes with your balance, that I didn't know you were not supposed to not drink on, and so it really just caused a frightful, disgusting blackout". "It was unfortunate. But you know what, I'm an adult and I have to move past it".

She added: "So it really just caused a terrible, awful blackout. It was like I went under like anesthesia and then just like woke up".

Olympios, who first appeared on Season 21 of "The Bachelor" with Nick Viall, said today she "remembers nothing from the situation".

The Miami native claims that she was blacked-out during the sequence of events that led to the show being shut down for almost two weeks, thanks to a bad combination of prescription medication and alcohol.

"Anything like this, it takes a toll on you", she says.

When asked if she had anything to say to DeMario, Olympios said that there was no "bad blood" between the two.

Nearly three months later, Corinne Olympios is still dealing with the aftermath of the Bachelor in Paradise sex scandal - and learning from it. Ahead of this, however, she gave an interview with Good Morning America to offer a little more insight into the incident, which dominated the news cycle all summer.

When the remaining "Paradise" cast met as a whole on the first episode of the season, their sympathies seemed to lie with Jackson as they anxious about the long-term effects the scandal would have on him and any future career opportunities, especially given the lingering racial issues of alleged misconduct between a white woman and a black man. I don't want to be taking something know, it was very scary what happened. "I was really a victim of the media".

"I never once thought that I would be here, today, speaking to you guys, in the middle of a insane scandal", Jackson said.

She went on to say she has no hard feelings against Jackson or "BiP" producers.

Olympios will talk more about the incident with Chris Harrison on tonight's "Bachelor in Paradise" episode, which airs at 8/7c on ABC.
