There is an argument to be made for Corinne being the true winner of last season of The Bachelor. I mean, think about it, she gets all the fame, glory, and funny gifs without any of the having to get married to Nick Viall. She’ll likely be going to Paradise where she’ll be the hottest commodity for anyone who wants to ride her attention coattails (so like, all Bachelorette contestants), and based on what we’ve seen of the men on Rachel’s season so far, she really dodged a bullet by not becoming the Bachelorette herself.
That being said, Corinne is not done weighing in on the man she left behind, or the
fame whore woman he chose instead. Talking to SiriusXM Hits 1 this week, Corinne not-so subtly shaded the “engaged” couple, saying “I have a lot of respect for both of them, I just personally—not saying anything bad about either of them—I just personally don’t think they’re compatible.”
Honestly, we see Corinne’s game here, and we respect it. It’s just like any time you want to talk shit about your ex’s new girlfriend. Start out saying how she’s a nice person and how you are truly over your ex and wish the best for him, then finish by saying you just didn’t realize he liked girls with such a pronounced FUPA. It’s masterful.
Corinne also went on to agree with one of the radio hosts that the couple are “staying together for fame.” “I think they’re both just in it for publicity and as soon as the publicity runs out, they’re going to break up,” the host said, proving once and for all that Corinne Olympios is actually capable of inception. She obviously snuck into this radio host’s subconscious to plant the idea of Nick and Vanessa being fake, all so she can be like “Well, I didn’t bring it up…” later.
In response to the host’s accusation of fakeness, Corine said she thought he was “on point,” adding that “They’re so phony with each other,” and that “It sucks, because they’re both really real people separately, but whenever they were together, looking at them—like, I lived with Vanessa and dated Nick—that’s not how either one of them really are. And I’m like what are you doing?”
Ouch. Looks like Corinne is painting Nick and Vanessa’s whole relationship as one big publicity stunt, and like all things Corinne says, we have to agree. Corinne doesn’t seem bitter though, which makes sense given that she’s focused on her potential stint on Bachelor in Paradise, already filmed an episode with Rachel for the next Bachelorette, and has launched her own clothing line. Meanwhile, Vanessa is stuck carrying Nick’s groceries and crying her eyes out over the loss of her Sunday dinners and psycho family. But yeah, you keep telling yourself you’re the “winner,” Vanessa. Whatever gets you through the day.
