Corinne Olympios Has a New Man and TWO New TV Shows in the Works
Corinne Olympios hasn’t exactly had an easy go of it when it comes to finding romance. Since we first met the brazen blonde on Nick Viall’s season of The Bachelor, she’s certainly seen her fair share of heartache: She was unexpectedly sent home just ahead of making the final three in the show’s 21st season, and though it appeared that she’d found love elsewhere shortly after, her controversial, if short-lived stint on Bachelor in Paradise brought turmoil to her personal life once more when production was shut down on the show over allegations of “misconduct” involving Olympios and fellow castmate DeMario Jackson.
Now, despite the fact that boyfriend Jordan Gielchinsky offered up a statement of unwavering loyalty and support post-Paradise, the two have officially called it quits. “I have known Corinne for over 10 years and as a friend or a boyfriend, she will continue to have my unwavering loyalty and support until I decide there is a legitimate reason not to give it,” he said at the time of the incident.
While our favorite corn advocate didn’t divulge the details surrounding their breakup, she did confirm to US Weekly that the two are no longer an item. “We’re not together anymore,” she confessed.
That doesn’t mean the 24-year-old is exactly heartbroken, though. According to the outlet, she’s seeing someone now, which she says “is going really well.”

Her career seems to be on the upswing, as well: As The Hollywood Reporter reports, in addition to a new man, she’s also got two new shows in the works. “I do have a [reality] show in the works and I’m also working on a scripted show with one of my favorite producers,” she revealed.
With an on-camera interview with Chris Harrison set for Tuesday night, we’re sure to get even more details on all the recent developments in her life, as well as her thoughts and feelings about the unfortunate events that occurred in Mexico. “Everyone thought they knew what happened,” she told THR. “It’s going to be really great to finally tell my side of things, through my eyes.”

Pocket doors are so delightful in and of themselves. They appear when you need them, get tucked away when you don't, and make it easy to define rooms while keeping an open floor plan. Add to the pocket door a joyful patterned wallpaper surprise, and you will be sent right into fits of visual jubilation! Or something ;) Today we're sharing two simple and impactful pocket door makeovers that zhuzh up your space in a jiffy.
Anjelika Temple here, co-founder of Brit + Co and proud owner of several pocket doors! When I moved into my first real grown-up house a couple years ago, I knew I wanted to incorporate wallpaper so reached out to our friends at Chasing Paper to see how we might collaborate. It felt like a total lightbulb moment when I realized I could create a surprise pop of pattern on a couple sets of pocket doors.
Not only is it a whimsical way to bring color into a space, but the doors double as picture-perfect backdrops for all your SFH (selfies from home, obvs).
A few pro tips about install:
- Removable wallpaper is miraculously forgiving! You can take it on and off multiple times without it losing integrity (or mucking up your surface).
- I ordered this adhesive wallpaper installation kit with a squeegee and xacto knife and it worked super well. I also recommend a sharp pair of scissors for cutting longer lines.
- This is a two-person job! Get a friend, put on a playlist, and get ready to bond.
- Wild, organic patterns like Tally are great because it's challenging to spot any imperfections in pattern alignment; keep pattern choice in mind if you've got a lot of corners to match up. More geometric patterns and larger shapes leave less room for error (but are awesome in their own right!).
BATHROOM POCKET DOORS
In our primary bathroom, we chose the wallpaper pattern Tally, designed by Kelly Ventura, in White and Navy. In our space, the navy reads as a soft black, which is perfect for the space. It's easy to combine an ever-rotating collection of linens with the Tally pattern.
I love how the white trim becomes the perfect frame around this pocket door piece of art.
My favorite moment in this space is the fact that you actually get a third pop of pattern thanks to our serendipitously placed mirror!
And yes, this one works pretty darn well as a backdrop too ;)
LIVING ROOM DOUBLE DOORS
This set of doors is definitely a focal point of our home. It separates our living room from our primary bedroom which opens onto our backyard. The doors are pretty much always open, but when they're closed we wanted to evoke a fun, nature-inspired vibe. With that in mind, we selected the Lines and Moons pattern by Thimblepress in Green and Brown.
Earth mama vibes up in here! I love how the shapes and colors echo the ferns you see through the windows and the acorn wood details throughout the house.
Love this pattern moment, and xacto-ing out the door handle is def on the oddly satisfying DIY list.
For a pattern lover like me, I love that now I have this instant photo backdrop!
