"I think KC and I are in the best position we have ever been in since we met," he added. It was super hard in the experiment and we weren't each other's type. It wasn't fair on her and it wasn't fair on me, but we're good."
His comments about Stacey's reaction to the news is somewhat surprising seeing as she told her social media followers when Michael and KC debuted their romance earlier this month that she was "happy" the duo had found love with one another.
"I'm happy for them. You know, if he treats her right, then good on them. They're happy, I'm happy, we're all happy. It's fine," she concluded before blowing a kiss to the camera.
Speaking about the soul-crushing moment during a recent Instagram Live, the 26-year-old said she received the unexpected phone call from her once close friend on the night she sat down to watch her TV wedding air on the big screen.
"(KC called and said) 'Hey babe, do you mind if Michael and I caught up for drinks, he's coming to Sydney?'" Stacey explained. "I was like, 'You can do whatever you'd want, but it'd hurt me. I loved the guy.'"
While the single mother of two tried to brush it off, Stacey said she felt betrayed by KC mainly because she leant on her when her alleged affair with Mikey Pembroke spelled the end of her romance with Michael.
"That hurt me the most, that she was there when I was hurting," she said, adding she often confided in KC about her tumultuous relationship with the Adelaide businessman.
