It's hard to know what to think regarding the Bachelor in Paradise scandal from last week.

Warner Bros. has completed their investigation and is resuming filming, but an attorney for contestant Corinne Olympios has stated they are still continuing their own investigation.

"Bachelor Nation," as the collective fanbase for all shows in the Bachelor franchise is known, was all atwitter over the news that production was shut down last week and the contestants sent home amidst a statement that there was "misconduct" on the set.

It didn't take long for the facts to come trickling out. Corinne Olympios of this past Bachelor season and DeMario Jackson of this current Bachelorette season had some sexual interaction in the pool. She claims to have no memory of it, noting she was drunk, but said others filled her in the next day. She said she has a boyfriend and would have never done anything like that willingly.

DeMario said it was mutual, yet a few crew members who did not witness the incident went to producers with the allegation of misconduct, and the show was shut down until they could do a proper investigation, with the future of the whole franchise hanging in the balance.

An investigation by Warner Bros. has found no evidence of misconduct and the studio is resuming production.

"Our internal investigation," said the studio in a statement, "conducted with the assistance of an outside law firm, has now been completed. Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident."

"We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member. Nor does the tape show, contrary to many press reports, that the safety of any cast member was ever in jeopardy," they added, also noting that they will be implementing "certain changes to the show's policies and procedures."

Olympios has hired well-known Hollywood lawyer Marty Singer, who has repped both Bill Cosby and Charlie Sheen, and he issued a statement on his client's behalf.

"It needs to be made crystal clear that production of 'Bachelor in Paradise' was shut down because of multiple complaints received from 'BIP' producers and crew members on the set," he stated. "It was not shut down due to any complaint filed by Corinne against anyone."

"It comes as no surprise that Warner Bros., as a result of its own internal Investigation, would state that no wrong doing had occurred," Singer continued. "Our own investigation will continue based on multiple new witnesses coming forward revealing what they saw and heard."
