"She ended up in the hospital because she wasn't eating from all of the stress and I remember Mishel saying to me, 'Natasha, Stacey has no one.' So we formed a bond."
The single mum of two confirmed she received treatment yesterday, telling Daily Mail Australia: "I went back to the hospital not long ago and was put on antidepressants. I am ok now."
While Natasha says she'll never be best friends with the law graduate, hearing her side of the story has left her even more confused, admitting she doesn't know who to believe when it comes to Stacey's alleged affair with Mikey.
"I thought Mikey was telling the truth but I am not 100 per cent sure," she shockingly admitted. "Who knows, Stacey is so adamant that it didn't happen and she's even going to do her own polygraph test. Let's just say that when I walked into the reunion, I was convinced and now I just don't know."
Taking the high road and focusing on bettering herself, Natasha told WHO she's also reconciled with Mikey and wishes him nothing but the best.
"We have now made a pact to take care of each other. I want positive energy for myself. I am forgiving him for so that I can let go of the hate," the mature bride explained. "Although it was two months of my life and he was never someone I fell in love with, I don't like being betrayed. Anyway, onwards and upwards from here."
While she no longer harbours resentment towards Stacey and Mikey, Natasha confirmed she'll never be able to forgive the MAFS producers, telling WHO she was "treated like an animal" when the cameras weren't rolling.
"It was f***ing putrid. They sit us on these hard plastic chairs in this dirty tent for hours and refuse to give us any reading material unless you ask. One time, I was wearing a white dress and I left with it literally being black," Natasha told us over the phone. "It's not right. I live in a first world country and I'd like to at least sit on a comfortable chair."
Speaking about filming the final dinner party— where she exposed Mikey and Stacey's shock affair— in a warehouse with no air-conditioning or fans, the outspoken bride said she raged at the show's producers when they decided to light a fire in the room, leaving many cast members feeling dizzy and unwell.
"It was 40 degrees in an uninsulated warehouse and it was so hot that Chris [Nicholls] got pulled off-set because he had sweated through his whole shirt and needed a dry one," she revealed, adding she's still traumatised by what happened behind the scenes. "It was so f***ing hot I split the seam in my $1,000 dress because the beading and silk were literally wet from sweat."
What could be worse than filming the same scene over and over again in the sweltering heat? Not having a lot of food onboard either.
"They give you fried rice that has been sitting around for god knows how long. I am gluten-free and they never served gluten-free food so I used to have to go down and get chips from the vending machine," she revealed. "There was even one night where Vanessa [Romito] got fed nothing because they had forgotten about her food intolerances."
