Valishia Savage regrets 'The Bachelor' comments about Rozlyn Papa

The Bachelor: On the Wings of Love bachelorette Valisha Savage feels remorse and regret about her The Women Tell All comments about Rozlyn Papa's alleged inappropriate relationship with fired producer Ryan Callahan.

"I heard everyone else's stories, and I kind of felt a little bombarded by producers and people who tried to sway me to that side," Savage told Us Weekly in a Tuesday report.

"Still, to this day, I never saw anything that made me think it was a sexual relationship. Never."

During Monday night's The Women Tell All reunion special, Savage -- who had been one of Papa's roommates during The Bachelor's filming -- said she was unable to find Papa anywhere in the house when she woke up at 4AM one night.

"I got up and I looked for you in the entire house and I didn't find you, Savage said.

"Where else would I have been?" Papa asked.

"I don't know but I looked for you," Savage said.  "I always wanted to think the best but I just don't think I believe you anymore."

"You think I left?" Papa asked.

"I think you were with him," Savage replied.

However Savage told Us she has changed her mind again and is now back to believing Papa.

"On the show, I said I don't think I believe you anymore, and at that point, I didn't think I did because everybody was hounding me with all this information," she told Us.  "But then after the show aired, Rozlyn called and told me her side, which is always what I felt to begin with. I really felt that [producers and castmates] took advantage of the whole situation."

"I don't think there was a sexual relationship. I think there was an inappropriate relationship; I think the producer told her information he shouldn't have and they became friends."

In addition, Savage said she feels claims of a romance between Papa and Callahan spread "because of gossip in the house" and the fact that Papa is "flirtatious" and the other bachelorettes were "threatened by how beautifiul" she is.

"So people jumped to conclusions and that created the story and then they just let it go to this snowball effect," she told Us. "I just don't know who to believe, but my heart still feels that this has blown way overboard."

Savage said that, like Papa, Callahan had also visited her hometown for a pre-show inerview before The Bachelor was filmed last fall.

"I had the same producer she had come visit me at my house," she told Us.  "If anything, he was very forward and flirtatious."

Savage added that she has apologized to Papa and that they plan on being "friends" going forward.

"We're both single moms, so there's that bond," Savage told Us.

"To tell you the truth, even if she had slept with him, I don't even care. It wouldn't change [the fact] that I want to friends with her. That's her own personal life, and I don't judge. I want to know the facts and I want to see them in front of me, and what I saw in front of me does not relate to a sexual affair at all."
