After what was no doubt one of her toughest interviews to date, Abbie was pushed to tears hours after the interview when KIIS FM's Kyle Sandilands decided it was an apt opportunity to tell her about the first time Matt and Chelsie had sex.
"Get over him," Kyle told Abbie. "Because I asked those two this morning what the sex was like. They were on a couch in a hotel in South Africa making out and feeling each other, and then he lifted her up and took her to the bedroom, took all his clothes off and inserted himself... You need to move on as well."
After a brief moment of silence, Abbie could be heard crying on the other end of the phone.
"She didn't need to hear that," Jackie O said to which Abbie replied, "Umm... sorry."
"Good one, Kyle," Jackie said awkwardly as the radio shock jock desperately tried to defend himself by saying: "It happened months ago!"
After Abbie hung up, Kyle appeared to feel horrible about the conversation, admitting: I didn't mean to make her cry. I was trying to help her get over it… In hindsight, you're right. I don't like when girls cry."

After what an emotionally exhausting week, Abbie has also been forced to contend with an intense amount of online hate. After being consistently bullied on social media, Lisa Wilkinson rushed to her defence over the weekend, slamming online trolls who claimed the controversial reality TV star deserves the hate directed towards her because she "knew what social media was like before even going on the show".
Under a photo posted to her Instagram page with Matt and Chelsie, The Project host replied to a nasty user, saying, "Whatever you think of these shows, no-one deserves the next-level nastiness, the threats of violence, the vicious pile-on, and the mean girls mentality that has gone on around her— both on and off the show— just because she decided to run her own race."
The mum-of-three continued: "She found him— and he clearly found her— sexually attractive. That was caught on camera but judging her, and not him, for taking part in that...is an attitude that belongs to the 1950s. Abbie is, clearly, heartbroken, and not the tough cookie she tried to portray in that final episode, so let's all be mindful of that, at the very least.
Abbie recently touched on the hate, revealing she's been struggling to cope with the abhorrent comments and Instagram DM's she's been receiving from nasty viewers who took exception to her "controversial" actions on the Bachelor.
"I've been getting a lot of horrible DMs," she told the hosts. "I've got a few threats of violence, saying—'Your mother shouldn't have had you'— those sort of things just hundreds of times a day."
