Bachelor in Paradise is back in business after claims of misconduct on set halted production last week. ABC and Warner Bros. released statements Tuesday confirming the show will resume filming after a thorough investigation. “Out of respect for the privacy interests of those involved, we do not intend to release the videotape of the incident,” the statement reads. “We can say, however, that the tape does not support any charge of misconduct by a cast member.
