Belinda was matched with Patrick Dwyer on the latest season of MAFS and are one of the few couples from the franchise still together.
The show’s viewers often poked fun at Belinda for her odd clothing combos, but it was back in childhood that Belinda really felt the full force of the brutality of others’ opinions.
“I went to an elite private school in Melbourne – very respected in the community, very academic, and as soon as I started there in Year 7, I was picked on,” Belinda previously told WHO.
But the bullying she endured went far beyond name-calling.
“Pretty much, the whole year group had it in for me. I only stayed on that school for a year and a half but even now, I can’t believe I survived it,” she confessed.
“There was nothing I did to deserve what happened to me but I think it came down to the fact I was very skinny and scrawny. I had frizzy hair, pale skin and I was very flat-chested. I was the weakling of the year group and that made me a big target from the get-go.”
That terrible time made door-to-door salesperson Belinda the strong woman she is today, she claimed, but it wasn’t an easy journey to self-acceptance.
