It’s true, Bachelor fans — you just can’t escape Corinne Olympios, even on the Grammy Awards red carpet.
E!’s Giuliana Rancic used her time with 2 Chainz on the carpet Sunday (soon after his win for best rap performance) to ask him about the reality TV villain’s appearance in his 2011 music video for “Zip & a Double Cup” with Juicy J and Tha Joker.
But 2 Chainz said he didn’t remember meeting Olympios, despite their very close proximity in the video.
“What was she doing? Is she okay?” he asked as a clip of the video played. “She was feeling good. »

Kaitlyn Bristowe is spilling Bachelor secrets!
Et's Lauren Zima sat down with the former Bachelorette (and Nick Viall's ex!) in Los Angeles on Wednesday, where she opened up about her time on the show -- revealing there's more to the ABC dating series than what we see on TV.
Find out Bristowe's eight juicy Bachelor secrets below:
1. She lost her hair!
Filming Bristowe's season of The Bachelorette was a lot more stressful to her than it looked -- and even caused her to lose her hair! "I lost hair [throughout the season], like chunks!" she confessed. "I had a bald spot at the back of my head from stress."
2. She got really close to the show's producers -- but things didn't stay that way.
Though she admits "they're just doing their job," Bristowe's relationship with Bachelor producers changed after watching the season »

People can exclusively reveal a First Look at Emily and Haley Ferguson’s upcoming spin-off show, The Twins: Happily Ever After? that features their very first guest stars: Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell!
Higgins, 28, and his fiancée Bushnell, 26, will appear in both the season premiere and at least one other episode.

It’s not necessarily a bad thing – the show would be boring without them – and it’s time to give them some recognition for their work.
Love them or hate them, they are all notorious in their own way. But were they there for “the wrong reasons?”
If we forgot your favorite, or you think someone else deserves to be #1, let us know in the comments.

In 2009, Alejandro Velez had overcome a lot of obstacles to get where he was. The then senior at Uc Berkeley had survived being kidnapped by terrorists while growing up in Medellín, Colombia, had beaten cancer and was just a few months away from beginning a lucrative career on Wall Street.
Then an off-hand remark by a professor changed everything.
“During a lecture, the professor brought up the fact that you could potentially grow mushrooms on coffee waste and for some odd reason I latched onto this idea,” Velez, 29, tells People.
After class, the finance major approached his professor and asked for more information. »
Bachelor fan-favorite twins Emily and Haley Ferguson are the latest reality stars from The Bachelor franchise to land a spin-off. As we reported in December, the twins were finalizing a deal to land their own unscripted program, though nothing was official at the time. On Tuesday, Freeform finally set a premiere date for The Twins: Happily Ever After?, which will follow the pair as they "say goodbye to the comfort and luxuries of living under their mom's roof and begin the hilarious journey of figuring out life on their own while searching for independence and a new career." But before we follow Emily and Haley on their new journey, here's what you need to know about the twins.
Et caught up with the Bachelor star at ABC's Television Critics Association party on Tuesday, where he defended the show's current villain, after audiences saw the Miami native take her top off on the season's first group date.
"I think so far, her portrayal is accurate," he said. "She has a big personality, and [is] certainly not afraid to take risks, and I think you're seeing a little bit of that. But at the same time, I think we all have a lot of different personalities and there's different sides to us."
"I appreciate the fact that, over time, people have gotten to see more of me, and have been patient with me. I hope they are as patient with Corinne as they »
Love Connection is coming back to TV.
Fox is reviving the 1980s dating show, ordering an updated version from The Bachelor creator Mike Fleiss, the network announced Wednesday at Television Critics Association press day. Watch What Happens Live host Andy Cohen will lead the new show.

The former Bachelorette star, who rose to fame after getting engaged to Brad Womack on season 15 of The Bachelor, before later getting engaged to Jef Holm at the end of her season of The Bachelorette in 2012, reflected on her time collecting and doling out roses on Tuesday's Good Morning America.
While Maynard said that she is watching Nick Viall's current season The Bachelor, and considers the franchise to be "the best TV on TV," she looks back at her time on the show through a difference lens, calling the experience a "train wreck."
"I always say I should not give anyone any Bachelor and Bachelorette advice because it has kind of been a train wreck, to be quite honest. My time on »
The Bachelor's Las Vegas-dwelling "professional twins" Haley and Emily Ferguson have achieved the ultimate goal in the world of reality TV: they got a spinoff. Premiering on Freeform on March 20, The Twins: Happily Ever After is following in the footsteps of Ben Higgins and Lauren Bushnell's similarly titled spinoff. As a brief history lesson, they first appeared on Ben's season, he said goodbye to Haley fairly early on, and pursued a relationship with Emily. When that didn't work out, the twins packed their bags and went to Bachelor in Paradise. By week five, they weren't finding love and chose to leave. While the new show won't focus on their quest to find romance, it will show them living at home (with their mom) in Vegas and striving for success in the entertainment industry. As a longtime Bachelor fan, I have mixed feelings about this. The flagship show is ridiculous enough, »

All’s fair in love and reality TV, right?
While there’s no doubt that over the years many of our favorite contestants on The Bachelor and The Bachelorette would probably agree with that phrase, there are quite a few that seem to have taken it a little too literally. They plotted, schemed, lied and betrayed — and made for some pretty amazing television in the process.
