Big Brother alum Paulie Calafiore revealed details of his controversial relationships with Danielle Maltby and Cara Maria Sorbello in a recent interview. It turns out Paulie was dating Bachelor alum Danielle and Challenge star Cara Maria at the same time. He was also caught last week with current Bachelor contestant Demi Burnett. However, the Big Brother houseguest reveals a different side to the story.
Big Brother Alumnus Paulie Calafiore and the Love Triangle
Paulie began dating Danielle Maltby in January 2018. However, while starring on MTV’s The Challenge, he also got involved with costar Cara Maria Sorbello. After filming the show, Paulie revealed his fling with Cara to Danielle. However, Danielle still wanted to be with the Big Brother star.
Unable to disconnect himself with Danielle, Paulie stayed around. He claims Danielle’s sadness from the situation made it difficult to leave. They even attended a couple’s therapy session in Mexico. The couple’s therapist recommended no contact for 45 days according to Paulie.
No one will know Cara’s and my story until this next season airs. That’s when we both truly knew we were meant for each other and wanted exclusivity. We chose each other then. You’ll understand why I want to fight for this since it’s been ripped from me. I love her. Going dark.

Of course, that didn’t happen. In the meantime, Paulie’s relationship with Cara grew. Several pictures surfaced on Instagram late last year of the couple. They were apparently more than friends. Paulie stated he and The Challenge costar developed a unique connection. So much so, he no longer desired to be with Danielle.
In December 2018, Danielle Maltby reported Paulie kept in contact with her. However, Cara assumed he was no longer affiliated with her. The two women talked to each other and shared information from Paulie. It was obvious he was still talking to them both.
Paulie’s Confessions: “I Was Wrong!”
The Big Brother reality star admits he was wrong. During his interview with Reality Steve, Paulie Calafiore states he shouldn’t have misled Danielle. He also states he should have been more honest with Cara about his relationship with Danielle.
Paulie alleges the reason he didn’t completely sever ties with Maltby is because of her mental status. At the time, she was severely down. So he felt pressured to stay in touch. But in hindsight, he believes he should have cut her off to avoid confusion. He admit he misled Danielle into believing a relationship was still a possibility.
Fast forward to January 2019, Calafiore says he wants to pursue Cara Maria Sorbello further. He doesn’t want anyone else. He’s willing to do anything he can to prove it to her. He’s even started therapy to “work on himself” so this situation never happens again. He wants a future with Cara. They’ve had talks of starting a podcast and fitness business together in the past. The Big Brother alumnus desires all that and more.
The guy wastes no time. Lets see, what lie will this one be. Let me guess, it's his cousin! No, sister! No, just some random blonde that he's strictly platonic with! This guy is a piece of work I tell ya' https://t.co/koKDmQrS3f

The Paulie Calafiore and Demi Burnett Sighting
On Wednesday January 2nd, the Big Brother star was seen in a car with Bachelor celeb Demi Burnett. A fan spotted the pair in New York as she was waiting in line to see Hamilton. Calafiore states he is nothing more than friends with Demi Burnett. She used to tend bar in Dallas where his friend worked. According to Paul, he was giving her advice regarding being a reality TV villain.
“It was nothing more than two people having a conversation” states Paul. They were only together for about 30 minutes. All in all, Paulie believes there are always two sides to every story. While people may not believe him, he is adamant about improving his character and pursuing his new love interest Cara. That’s all that matters to him at this point.
