However, fans had zero sympathy for Mishel after calling Haley ‘her girl’ and giving Michael Goonan a friendly greeting after the pair admitted to an affair.
'Mishel made a big deal of her past. Cheaters, yet "hi, Michael". Weirdos,' wrote one Married At First Sight fan.
Another added: 'Mishel calling Hayley her girl, yet she said she can't stand cheaters.'
'Connie [Crayden] and Mishel defending Hayley. Imagine if its their husbands who are cheating with Hayley they might brush her teeth with [a] toilet brush,' a third added.
I'm gonna call out Mishel. She's enabling Hayley's behaviour by comforting her and she cheated on her husband. Stop with the girl code when it comes to cheating,' another said.
Despite the backlash, other fans supported Mishel’s decision to be friendly to the cheating reality TV stars.
'I love how Mishel and Steve are the mum and dad of everyone and they always take care of everyone. It's like a big f****d up family,' one fan said.
'Mishel radiates big supportive aunt energy and I love it,’ said another.
'Mishel is right. Us women need to stop putting all the blame on the other woman. Stop being so forgiving of the cheating partner.’
