“I didn’t believe it at first,” Jake tells Entertainment Tonight. “I’ve never been cheated on. I thought it was something that was being produced and thrown at me. As it was unraveling, I realized it was serious.”
As for reports that ABC is embellishing the affair to be something it’s not (ABC ran a promo claiming it was a sexual affair, Rozlyn has come out denying there was any sex involved), Jake denies this. “Everything that’s going to air Monday is exactly the way it happened. There is no embellishing and there’s no holding back.” Jake also confirms that the staff member is no longer working on the show.
Rozlyn on the other hand continues to speak out against the Bachelor show and ABC. In her latest interview with RadarOnline, The 28-year-old make-up artist from Richmond, Va. accuses ABC of lying to her and manipulating the show. She also claims ABC reneged on their promise to allow her to talk about her 7 year old son, and bring him on the show.
“ABC told me I could bring my son to the show to visit and that I could talk about him each day on the show,” Rozlyn told Radar. “But then they didn’t let me.”
“The other girls on the show all knew about my son and ABC kept telling me to hold off and not tell Jake about him yet. At that point all the other girls knew I had a son and they were spending time alone with Jake and it looked like I was hiding the information.”
RealitySteve also corroborates Rozlyn’s story. According to him, ABC’s plan was to have Rozlyn withhold information about her son, so that by the time Jake found out about it, it would seem like Rozlyn has purposely hid the information from him, thus creating a storyline/scandal for the show. Apparently Rozlyn found out about this when one of the other bachelorettes told her they were asked how they felt about Rozlyn lying to Jake by not telling him she has a son. Rozlyn freaked out on the show’s producers upon discovering this. This led to her confiding and developing a relationship with one of the producers, and ultimately getting kicked off the show.
Rozlyn explains her relationship with the said producer, “No, I did not have a sexual relationship with a producer on the show. What they mean by inappropriate relationship is not what inappropriate relationship means in the real world.”
According to Rozlyn, she and the producer continue to remain “close” friends but are not a couple.
