Ella Nolan: I lied because I wanted to confront Rozlyn Papa directly
By Reality TV World staff, 02/23/2010
Ella Nolan says there's a simple explanation for why, despite her previous comments to Reality TV World in which she claimed otherwise, Monday night's The Bachelor: The Women Tell All reunion special suddenly featured her claiming to have seen Rozlyn Papa engaging in an inappropriate relationship with fired producer Ryan Callahan.
"I wanted to say it to her personally instead of it being quoted in a tabloid that this is what Ella said. You know I wanted to say it to her personally... that's one of the reasons I didn't say anything until I could confront her," Nolan told Entertainment Tonight.
"It was crazy for me to pick up a magazine and read something that was just harsh, you know. At that time I had so much sympathy for Rozlyn and you know, I was just like, 'Poor Rozlyn.' But the more that I thought about it, she's an adult, she made the decision knowing that she's a mom and I can't respect that."
Monday night's The Bachelor: The Women Tell All reunion featured Nolan telling The Bachelor host Chris Harrison that she believed Papa had an inappropriate relationship with Callahan and recalling an incident in which she claimed Papa had posed seductively and told the other women to tell Callahan she needed to be "put to bed" one night.
"We were all fixing to go to bed and you were on the couch and we said 'Rozlyn, are you going to come to bed?' and you said 'No' and you were kind of on all fours for whatever reason," Nolan told Papa during the reunion show.
"You had your butt up in the air with these little shorts on that looked like underwear and you put your front part down -- your front top down -- and you said 'If you see [Callahan] send him in because I need to be put to bed.'"
However the account directly contradicted Nolan's previous claim that she had not seen "anything out of the ordinary" between Papa and Callahan.
"First of all, I have to say that I really think that Rozlyn is a good person," Nolan told Reality TV World during a January 23 conference call when asked whether she had believed there had been something going on between Papa and Callahan.
"I really did not see a lot with her and the producer," she continued. "I saw them being very friendly with each other. I didn't see anything out of the ordinary. So I have to say no, I wasn't one of the ones who went to the producers."
