With a tipsy grin I shot back, “Oh please, we’re all adults here.
In between the tears there was confusion and sadness, and yet he remained hopeful that, ultimately, his name will be cleared. I knew them for less than 72 hours and in that time frame, they went to bat for me. Once we had our little scene or whatever..were getting ready to get lined up because Chris Harrison was coming to speak to us. Then we go up to Chris and at this point we're just all drunk. You know if you're Drake in Paradise, you're going to leave early. That's why I like Corinne because she's the kind of girl where she feels like she's like her and Beyoncé are the only two people in her world…. A lot of people's lives were on the line, like a lot of money. If I was to go back it would be strictly for her, but I don't even know if I am going to go back. Everyone has been extremely supportive, which is wild because I knew a lot of the girls for three days, you know, like 72 hours.

Here is De Mario's play-by-play of what really went down in Paradise and how it felt to be at the center of the sex scandal that rocked one of the biggest reality TV franchises in the world: How are you doing? It's been a crazy roller coaster but throughout the whole entire process my mother, my father, aunts, uncles...school teachers, all my castmates... They spoke on my integrity and who I was as a man and what I did on set, and it was just really humbling. And from there everybody was kind of like, "Damn, you got Paradise started! At one point Chris is like, "De Mario, get your s--t together, pick your head up, open your eyes." "Corinne, get up."... If you're Kanye you're going to be ruthless, really not care about anybody but yourself and ultimately win. At the end of the day she knows she can get any guy on the island. And Jasmine, Corinne and Raven fell coming down the stairs and went to medical... I would love to sit down and speak to her real, like, "I'm not gonna let you ruin somebody. We are [all] sitting here a little confused..bad thing is last week. I am able to be here and talk to you and be able to clear my family name…. I haven't had anxiety this whole interview, I still don't have an appetite but it's very cool to at least be getting out my side, finally! I could be super naive to it and I could be that person who goes into Paradise and get screwed again, or I could be that person that finds love. Who are you today as opposed to who you were two weeks ago? I haven't been sleeping as much, but I am not going to be that person that is like "f--k the world." I am still going to smile.

" I said something about not kissing and telling..we all took shots. Did Corinne seem jealous of you and other girls talking? I know you were really drunk, so I don't necessarily expect you to notice this, but was she stumbling at the end of the night? I read something that said "after she got out of the pool with De Mario, she was bruised and battered but Jasmine and Raven were like, 'nope, that's false.'"Next morning, what happened? It wasn't a coincidence that she hopped in my arms and we went to the pool and then these days go by... I feel like she was given wrong information or she was a part of something that was much bigger. I love you to death, Corinne, but that's not right.

The crazy thing about all of this, Jasmine [Goode], my castmate, walked by when all this happened and they were coherent, they were talking, lucid, seemed super normal. It was nothing that hasn't been seen on Paradise before... And we're all just like, "Yesterday was nuts"..."Do you remember when this happened?

I'm very upset for selfish reasons..then I realize that 300-plus people [work on the show]—like there's some people who need this month's check. I hang up my phone and, holy s--t, my group chat was on fire. When I have children one day they are going to Google their dad's name, this is going to pop up. Yeah, my situation is terrible..I'm thankful enough to be in a situation where I can get the correct help.
