Steve Carbone, the Bachelor blogger known as Reality Steve, issued the statement today after he was recently called out by Bachelor Nation stars Demi Burnett and Kristina Schulman for inappropriate behavior -- for which he apologized. "Going forward, I'm not gonna have any sort of personal relationship with these contestants," he said. "Because even the times I've tried to speak to them in a 'looking out for you' way, helping them maybe avoid disaster, etc, it backfires more often than not. I need to draw clearer lines that these are people I'm reporting on not people I have relationships/friendships with." Carbone went on to say that he's now aware of the "power dynamic" that exists between the reality stars and himself, as a reporter. He has realized that the dynamic "prevents any REAL social relationship from happening" and "prevents genuine behavior, meaning, I can't be sure if someone actually WANTS to talk to me or not."
