The Bachelor host Chris Harrison shot down the claims made by ousted contestant Rozlyn Papa on Fox News Tuesday, and RadarOnline.com‘s got the full scoop for you.
The drama with Harrison and Papa traces back to last month, when Harrison dismissed Papa from the show for an “inappropriate relationship” with Ryan Callahan, a producer for the ABC reality hit.
“Everyone who knows me knows it wasn’t true, and it’s kind of silly,” Rozlyn said of the rumored affair.
Harris told Fox Tuesday “this girl did hook up with one of our producers,” adding that many members of the show’s cast and crew witnessed the monkey business.
“But God bless her, she’s still denying it,” he said.
More fireworks erupted on Monday night’s Women Tell All episode, when Papa said that Harrison — a married man with kids — hit on Callahan’s wife when the show was taping in New Zealand.
“Well, what happens in the Southern Hemisphere …” Harrison joked on Fox, before denying Papa’s claims.
The finger pointing is typical behavior from Papa, Harrison said, adding she has two “defense mechanisms” to get out of sticky situations: throwing out attacks and swearing on her son’s life.
Harrison said that his wife of 16 years was in the studio for Monday’s episode, but blew off Papa’s eyebrow-raising claims.
“She knows this business,” Harrison said. “She laughed it off.”
The Bachelor season finale airs on ABC Monday at 8/7c.
