Corinne Olympios duped by Sacha Baron Cohen
Bachelor alum and my personal all-time fave, Corinne Olympios has been punked by none other than Sacha Baron Cohen for his Showtime series Who Is America?
It appears that Sacha is targeting anyone and everyone who has ever endorsed President Donald Trump. Corinne claims that she was told she was receiving a coveted reality star of the year award and convinced to participate in various segments that included a “child with gun thing” and an “uncomfortable interview-photoshoot”.
“He played this crazy Italian man. He was screaming in a cheesy Italian accent the whole time, I was like, what’s this dude’s problem?” she recounted to the The Daily Beast.
“So I’m answering all the questions, I’m saying all the stuff he’s telling me to say, I’m visibly getting upset, and they were just trying to keep me calm basically,” she lamented. “And finally I just got so upset and was like, What is going on here, this is really crazy, you guys are asking me really unprofessional things! And they were like don’t worry, you’re doing really great, and I was like, I know I’m doing great! You guys are the problem here!”
Olympios also claims that she was physically blocked from exiting the warehouse where they were filming:
“I’m like, are you guys kidnapping me? I don’t get it. It was like, you’re holding me here against my will, what the fuck is going on? You guys are fucking out of your minds! … I was like grabbing every cameraman, like, am I going to die? Am I ok?”
“I started crying, I was like everyone’s going to think I’m a supporter of children with guns,” she said, “and I said that I helped cure Ebola and that I went to Africa for three months, everyone knows I didn’t live in Africa for three months!” And by the way, she has no ill will towards Cohen at all. “I think he’s great,” she said. “I’m so excited to be a part of his new project.”
