The Bachelor’s Vanessa Sunshine has a message ‘awful people’ Romy, Cat and Alisha: any apologies they might now want to offer for their controversial behaviour are not welcome and won’t be accepted.
Speaking exclusively to WHO’s TV podcast, Binge List, Vanessa didn’t hold back when it came to discussing her nightmare run in the Bachelor mansion, which was plagued by what she and many viewers perceived as bullying.
‘I am someone who, f*** me over and you are dead to me, I’m done,’ she sternly told Binge List - in what is perhaps her most brutally frank interview yet.
‘I haven’t heard any apology. To be fair I wouldn’t accept an apology now because they’re just back peddling to save face because they’ve copped it from the public.’
As for the way she has been perceived, Vanessa says she had great reason to look ‘so s****y’ for much of her time on the show.
‘What you were seeing [on the show], it is real, that’s really how they were, if not worse,’ says Vanessa – who dismisses claims the trio were misrepresented or edited badly. ‘They were nasty to myself and especially Tenille as well.
‘It’s just disgusting, it really was horrible.’
Vanessa says she isn’t surprised that so many people have remarked on her icy demeanor while on the show.
‘People are commenting, "Oh Vanessa looks shitty all the time". Well, derrr – I was around people I didn’t like who were being nasty to me all the time.
‘So yeah, I was a bit sour. I’m thinking, "Get away from me!" They really were just awful people.’
While Vanessa thinks some women in the house were just acting out to simply raise their profiles, she suggests her haters may have had even more base motives.
‘I don’t know what it is, but it’s not the first time it’s happened to me,’ she told Binge List.
‘There’s something about me that just brings out something in other women. I don’t know if it’s their own insecurity.’
While family and friends have taken to social media to defend Romy, Cat and Alisha, Vanessa isn’t having any of it.
‘I guarantee 100 per cent that the people who are defending them have not been on the receiving end of their behaviour,’ she says.
