During Wednesday night's episode of Married at First Sight: Unfiltered, Paige watched back a Season 12 clip of Chris telling her that he couldn't focus on building their connection because she allegedly wouldn't answer her phone when he called.
Jamie, however, asked Paige for her side of the story when it comes to Chris' accusation she was different on and off-camera.
"Oh my gosh," Paige vented.
"I had to fall back from some of the communication off-camera because I'm like, 'If we can't get on the same page when we're actually filming this or documenting this, then I don't feel comfortable having any more conversations off-camera."
Paige added, "I needed to protect my emotional and mental well-being."
Paige also believed Chris was trying to blame her for their marriage not working.
"He's saying that he feels rejected for me not answering a couple of phone calls, but I mean... I've been feeling rejected since Day 1!" Paige complained.

Paige, however, insisted she wasn't trying to get revenge or give Chris "a taste of his own medicine."
"Because that's not how I operate," Paige noted.
Chris brought up the phone-call conversation after Paige complained their communication had not been consistent and they needed to work on that in order to have any hope of building a friendship or potential romance down the road.
When Chris argued that he had called Paige multiple times to hang out or grab some food but she never answered and seemed to be ignoring him on last week's episode, Paige explained that she had been spending time with her mother.
Paige suggested Chris could have followed up his phone call with a text, but Chris noted he prefers talking on the phone and "it shouldn't be so hard" to communicate with somebody in a marriage.
"I feel like from a communication standpoint, you're not trying," Chris complained. "I don't think we are doing a good job at being spouses."
Paige explained she was frustrated because Chris always seemed ready to shut the door on her, and Chris admitted what he needed emotionally was not being met.
"For you to say I'm not meeting your emotional needs, where were you when I needed you emotionally?" Paige asked, referencing the difficult time when she had discovered during her honeymoon that Chris' ex-fiancee Mercedes Myrick was pregnant.
"Granted, you don't know me from a hole in the wall and you don't owe me anything because we're still strangers, but... we are legally bound to each other. I at least expect that kind of respect, to see this process through."
Paige felt disrespected and vented to the cameras about how she's a busy woman with things to do and errands to run and she shouldn't be expected to drop everything immediately once Chris calls or reaches out.
"There's no connection. I don't have a connection with you," Chris told Paige. "We are 100 percent emotionally disconnected. I am out, gone. Mentally I am gone."
Chris added, "In another time zone, I'm gone. I want to be in a serious relationship, a serious marriage... It's been a week since we had that last conversation, and we are still in the same place."
Chris said if their relationship wasn't real and authentic behind the scenes, then it wasn't going to be after the show.
"I feel like this is not it, and it's fine," Chris admitted.
Paige then burst into tears and cried about how she felt "disturbed" because she had been taking the Married at First Sight process very seriously. Paige said Chris had everything he wanted but threw it all away.
"We didn't make it. I'm sorry," Chris told Paige.
During Wednesday night's Season 12 broadcast, Paige revealed Chris had once again asked her for a divorce and she was trying to work on loving herself and picking up the pieces of her failed marriage.
