Bridgerton Spoilers: Summer House Star Paige DeSorbo Apologizes For Insensitive Comments Made About Regé-Jean Page
While on the Giggly Squad podcast, Paige said that she supported the idea of seeing the Bridgerton hottie being case as the next James Bond. This is because she said “he’s real British [and] he’s light-skinned.”
Of course, it didn’t take very long for fans and critics to slam Paige for her comments. A week after she made her comments, Paige apologized to viewers by saying that she realized that she had “described an actor’s skin tone when describing his appearance.” Paigse insists that she didn’t realize her comments were offensive at the time.
“I wanted to take time to sincerely apologize to anyone that I may have offended,” the Bravo star said on Sunday, January 17, episode of her podcast. “It was not my intention and I recognize [that] what I said was wrong. I am completely committed to learning and growing, so I just wanted to take time today and sincerely apologize for my words from last week. I’m very sorry.”
