After sticking by each other’s side through the sh*tstorm that is Married at First Sight Australia 2022, it’s no surprise that Domenica Calarco and Ella Ding‘s friendship is stronger than ever post-show.
Many in the experiment approached the situation with the mentality of, ‘well, you put it out there so you have to expect that people are going to see it’. However, Ella was quick to condemn the group for the “terrible” way in which it was exposed and further slammed the women for not having Domenica’s back.
Now that filming is done and dusted, it appears that the 27-year-old beautician continues to be Domenica’s biggest supporter.
The pair were pictured sinking a few cocktails at Melbourne’s Hotel Esplanade in February.
They’ve also been the subject of a number of happy snaps from Domenica’s birthday party in early March, too.
Ella Ding Was The Only Bride Not Shown Domenica’s Photo
Conveniently, Domenica’s bestie Ella and her husband, Mitch Eynaud, were the only couple not shown the racy image.
Chatting to HIT FM’s Maz Compton and Danny Lakey on Thursday, Ella said “here was obviously a reason that everyone had seen it but [her]”.
Accordingly, the Melburnian was pissed that the other brides didn’t speak up about the photo sooner.
“After the incident at the retreat, all the women were like, ‘I wish I spoke up’. They all said that to me,” Ella revealed to the co-hosts.
“That situation at the dinner party, that was their time to shine and again no one came forward before the dinner party. No one texted her,” she recalled. “It was really just the way the group had handled it. That was probably what was most disappointing. No one really had her back again.”
Ella concluded by rubbishing the group’s behaviour as “childish”.
It was immature and it was high school crap and like I said, we all have choices. We get to choose how we handle situations. The way people handled it at the dinner party is immature.
