Following shocking Bachelor spoilers about her alleged hookup with a crew member, Rozlyn Papa has come forward to deny rumors of "inappropriate behavior."
"I did not have a sexual relationship with a producer on the show," the 28-year-old model, who is believed to be get the boot next week, told Radar Online.
Promos for The Bachelor tease (and ABC has even sort of addressed) the scandal that will lead to the dismissal of a contestant on the January 11 episode.
But Rozlyn Papa insists she did nothing wrong.
"What they mean by inappropriate relationship is not what inappropriate relationship means in the real world," she said. "I did have a relationship with someone on [The Bachelor] that didn't benefit them. We remained close but we are not dating."
"This is a TV show and made for entertainment, but it is a far cry from reality," Rozlyn continued. "I know that things on television weren't always as they seemed, but I really had no idea the extent of the show manipulation."
COME TO PAPA: You'd get a rose from us any day, Rozlyn!
A couple of days ago, ABC dropped the bomb that an unnamed female contestant had an "inappropriate relationship" with one of The Bachelor's producers.
We hear the single mom became livid with the show for not letting her talk to her son, and the "affair" was manufactured as a means of cutting her loose.
Sources say Rozlyn Papa did become close with a producer on the reality show, and that he even admitted feelings for her. But nothing actually happened.
As usual, the network will use crafty editing to make the situation appear worse than it actually was, and is issuing vague statements about the episode:
"It was an incident that we've never had to deal with before. It was tough for everyone, crew members, the women and Jake," host-pimp Chris Harrison said.
"Hopefully we can quickly move past this and it won't dominate the season. But definitely everyone will see what happens." Yes, definitely everyone will.
He did not mention Rozlyn Papa by name.
For her part, Roz says she has no regrets about her conduct, and certainly has nothing against the show's star, hunky pilot Jake Pavelka: "He is SO cute!"
UPDATE: The episode in which Rozlyn was kicked off The Bachelor has now aired (as of January 11). Who do you believe, her or the show? Vote below:
