The model from Richmond, Va. has told various media outlets that the show fabricated the entire scandal. When Harrison asked Papa whether she had a physical relationship with the producer during the show, she replied, "Absolutely not." She then went on to accuse the show of preventing her from calling her son. Papa also labeled the other women's testimony as "lies," and took a personal swipe at Harrison.

Also returning for 'Women Tell All' was Ali Fedotowsky, the 25-year-old Facebook employee who left Pavelka in the lurch when she quit the show to go back to her job. While speaking to Harrison, she admitted to regretting her decision.


'Women Tell All' had a little bit of everything. Here are a few of our favorite moments.

• So ... the Return of Rozlyn. Before hitting the stage, Rozlyn was squarely in the sights of Chris Harrison, who described her controversy as the "10,000 pound elephant in the room." Three specific claims about Rozlyn's producer hook-up came forward: she kissed her producer friend on the stairs in the house, there was thigh-touching and she had told fellow bachelorettes she wanted the producer to put her to bed. The revelations were greeted with dropped jaws.

• Before her introduction, Rozlyn got a backstage video walking lead-in as though she was coming on 'Jerry Springer.'

• Rozlyn quickly lashed out at 'Bachelor' producers for not letting her call her son because no cameras were around to shoot it -- a claim the other two bachelorette moms bristled at.

• Harrison compared Rozlyn's hook-up denial to a fictional story about "unicorns" and "magicians," which drew derisive laughs from the audience.

• For her defense, Rozlyn relied on an argument that said cameras didn't catch any shots of she and the producer hooking up, and thus it must not have happened. When Harrison interrupted to refute, Rozlyn barked, "If you are going to ask me a question, you can calm down and let me answer it."

• Rozyln and her producer friend have remained close after the show -- she's even met his father.

• Chris Harrison was accused of hitting on the fired producer's wife in New Zealand. Apparently caught off-guard, Harrison looked down and said that he wouldn't "dignify with [the claim] a response." We would like to know more about that.

• What was that about the dog's life vs. the child's life? While one contestant swore on her dog's life that that she saw Rozlyn making out with the producer, Rozlyn threw her son's life out as collateral.

• Ali Fedotowsky got the loudest applause of all the ladies when introduced.

• Ali admitted that she still missed Jake. "It was tough," Ali, who picked Facebook over love, said. "One thing, I do in my real life is I don't deal with my emotions. I bury myself in work." She was too conflicted with feelings, obligations and family. "I couldn't take that risk," she said.

• A lot of tough moments to see on the heartbroken Gia Allemand's face (although she has been reported to have a boyfriend): her first kiss with Jake, the intimate moment when they cuddle up on a couch and he said, "It's OK to fall." Top 3 finisher Gia said she "froze up" before telling him that she loved him when the other women had. "I have learned a lot from it," Gia said. "I really learned how to express myself. I am going to tell him exactly how I feel."

• Booted from the show mid-date after a horrendous first kiss, Michelle was framed as a looney. With mysterious music playing in the background, a video segment of her time on the show focused on her wild eyes and confessions of wanting to fall in love quickly. Michele defended herself on 'Women Tell All,' saying the 'Bachelor' process didn't work for her.
