Tonight is The Women Tell All,” the typical Bachelor reunion that’s sometimes dramatic, sometimes a waste of time. This season’s two-hour version could be explosive or one-sided, depending upon how it’s edited, and depending upon how much you believe Rozlyn or Chris Harrison.
Yes, Rozlyn Papa the cast member accused of having an affair who accuses the show of lying and faking the affair, will return, and she’ll talk to Chris Harrison, just as he always wanted. But will ABC and the producers actually include footage of Rozlyn accusing (married) Chris Harrison of hitting on a married producer’s wife? Because that’s what she said she did.
“He did not do well with actual confrontation. It wasn’t scripted, he does well with scripted. But he said something like ‘We’re all just really wounded by this because a member of our family, one of our dear friends was fired,’ and I said ‘It’s funny you should say that because I talk to this producer and the fact that you guys are friends is news to him. He didn’t get a really friendly vibe when you were hitting on his wife last year in New Zealand!” Rozlyn told Radar.
She said she was kept away from the other women, which is atypical, and brought on only for a short time to be confronted, apparently by them but definitely by Chris Harrison. And she added, “As soon as Chris Harrison started getting angry they whisked me off the stage.”
Chris Harrison told TV Guide that they brought Rozlyn back because “I got some heat and so did the show for being vague and so I went into the show [and] told everyone we’re going to get the truth out.” But he’s sticking to his narrative: “You will hear from the women explosive new details that you have never heard before, because none of them have ever spoken about it until now. There will be 100 percent no question in anyone’s mind, other than Rozlyn’s, of course. She’s the only one confused about it in that relationship. The funny part, not even the guy involved in the relationship is confused. And when I tell you explosive new details, I mean details. Nothing vague about any of this. Time, place, everything — you will hear it all.”
That may be the key: hear it all. We’ve yet to see any actual evidence, and for a reality show, that’s pretty unbelievable. If it happens, cameras usually catch it, and if they have footage, they usually show it.
