Playboy Playmate Stephanie Larimore made a surprise appearance on The Bachelorette this week, confronting then-boyfriend Brian Jarosinski about going on the reality show to woo Desiree Hartsock. But looking back, she wishes she wouldn't have gone on national television to address the cheating scandal. Speaking exclusively to EnStars, Larimore opens up about the dramatic episode and what she's up to now.
During the June 10 episode of The Bachelorette, Larimore comes to claim her man and has a breakdown when she gets to the mansion. She confronts Jarosinski, calling him a "lying, cheating, deceitful pig."
Today, Larimore is "doing well" and moving on after kicking Jarosinski to the curb.
"I'm staying busy with my little man, [son Donovan]," the single mom said, adding that she wishes she would have handled the situation differently, instead of airing the scandal on national TV.
"Though I have few regrets in life, I wish I had thought about the impact the show would have our lives," she said.
Thankfully, due to storms in the Washington, D.C. area, the episode didn't air in her hometown.
"Thank goodness the weather was bad here in DC and the confrontation was not aired. Funny how that happens," she quipped. "I am glad because I really didn't want to watch it and certainly didn't want my son to see it all go down."
Perhaps Larimore got the last laugh though with Jarosinski booted from the reality dating show. At the end of the episode, Hartsock sent Jarosinki home, telling him that he obviously didn't come on the show for the right reasons.
"He wasted my time," Hartsock said. "I don't know what was going through his head."
Host Chris Harrison told TV Guide that, eventually, Jarosinski admitted off-camera that Larimore was telling the truth about their relationship. "He finally admitted they slept in the same bed the day before which basically means that the morning he left he was in bed with another woman, got up, grabbed his bags and came on to The Bachelorette," he said.
For now, Larimore is hoping to keep her life out of the public eye. "[I'm] staying away from reality tv shows," she said.
The Bachelorette airs Mondays at 8p.m. on ABC. See Larimore's confrontation below:
