In a lengthy Instagram post, Clare explained why she's lifting the lid on MAFS.
Her message in full:
"So I did an interview... first time my fat head has been in front of the camera since MAFS."
"I just saw the promo as the interview goes to air on Sunday. I'm ever so pleased that I put on so much bronzer that I colour matched my face to the orange/dirt coloured wall behind me 🙄🤦🏼♀️😂. "
"I have to admit, I'm so anxious for this to screen as I know I’m going to be raked over the coals again by trolls. I didn’t say anything bad about my match Jono as he, like me was just one of their puppets. I earnestly wish him nothing but happiness. "
"My beef is with @channel9 as the situation they put us both into was very damaging, particularly for me as I went on the show right after a experiencing a major trauma, resulting in me developing PTSD which they were aware of."
" I must admit, I’m so nervous to see how the interview end up once exited. I want to get the message I out though that as these shows become more & more SUPERSIZED, the absolute lack of duty of care for the cast all in the name of ratings is horrific."
"Viewers should know that as soon as the network have made their money from you. Then network simply kicks you to the curb leaving you to scramble around in the dirt, trying desperately to piece your life back together. There have been a number of reality TV cast members who have taken their own lives overseas recently due to the fall out of these shows. I also know some Australians who have made attempts on their own lives in the aftermath of a show they were on, including myself. "
"What will it take for Australia to wake up to what we are watching & therefore supporting?? Does someone have to die first???"
" I only agreed to do this rather intimidating interview so people can get a peek behind the fake glitz into the very dark side of some ‘Reality TV’ shows and decide if they want to continue to support having these shows like this on the air."
