Here’s What Corinne Olympios *Really* Thinks of Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi’s Romance
Look out, world — we haven’t seen the last of Corinne Olympios yet! It’s been pretty quiet when it comes to news of our favorite Bachelor villain as of late (all the better for her to snuggle up to the new man in her life?), but that’s all about to change. The 24-year-old just made an appearance on Sirius XM radio to say that we’ll be seeing more of her soon, on the upcoming season of The Bachelorette.
We can’t say we’re terribly shocked — not only does Olympios seem to have a knack for drawing in big-time ratings, but Lindsay has publicly stated that she’s very pro-Corinne in the past. “I love Corinne,” she told Ellen during an appearance of the daytime host’s show.
Olympios dished the dirt to the station, saying, “I filmed an episode with her and I met some of the guys she’s dating, ”She also offered up her thoughts on the lot, saying, “[They’re cute], yes.”

She didn’t have such warm sentiments toward her fellow love interest and his bride-to-be, Nick Viall and Vanessa Grimaldi, however. As it turns out, the businesswoman happens to belong to the camp that finds the pair more awkward — or worse, fake — than endearing, and girl didn’t hold ANYTHING back.
“They’re so phony with each other,” she said. “It sucks, because they’re both really real people separately, but whenever they were together looking at them… I mean, I lived with Vanessa and dated Nick, that’s not how either one of them really are. So I’m like, ‘What are you guys doing?’”
Ouch! Looks like the former contestant, who left the show proclaiming that she would “never kiss up to a man ever again in [her] life,” isn’t quite ready to bury the hatchet with these two just yet.

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!
