Wow, we were not expecting to hear this! Corinne Olympios visited Ellen DeGeneres way back in February, before the Bachelor in Paradise drama went down when she was just the topless, crazy girl on Nick Viall's season of The Bachelor. While the interview seemed fun and light-hearted to viewers at the time, Corinne recently admitted that that was far from the way she felt.
Corinne stopped by The Morning Breath podcast on Nov. 14 and simply named Ellen as the most famous person she had ever met. That's when host Claudia Oshry pushed for more information, asking Corinne to confirm rumors that Ellen is "not so nice" and doesn't like to be looked in the eye. Corinne was visibly uncomfortable, but eventually admitted that that was her experience, too.
"I love Ellen so much, I thought I would be like talking to Dory and I was really excited and she made me so uncomfortable unfortunately, I kept this in for so long but to be honest she just made me a little uncomfortable," said Corinne. When asked to explain what Ellen did to make her feel so awkward, she explained that "She's very aggressive, she was very cold when I saw her before the show, which I don't think I was supposed to, because everybody got very nervous when we bumped into each other and you could tell they were like 'oh, s--t.'"
Still looking nervous, Corinne quickly said "But, I still love her." Looking back at the original interview, Ellen did prod Corinne over and over again about her sexual behavior, her drinking, and the fact that she had a nanny. It all seemed like good fun, but we could see why Corinne felt attacked.
