It was arguably the biggest scandal to come out on this year’s season of Married At First Sight when Domenica Calarco’s OnlyFans account was ‘exposed’ by another bride and a naked photo was circulated amongst the cast without her consent.
Now she’s changing the narrative.
The 29-year-old bride has officially relaunched her now-infamous account on the subscription-based platform, but not for the reasons people might think.
“After being shamed for OnlyFans on the show and everything I went through, this is my chance to take back power and make light of the experience,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle.
Dom explains that her account will be “PG” and provide an insight into her life “without the confinements of Instagram which is highly monitored”.
“OnlyFans does get a bad rap here in Australia,” she adds. “People automatically think of it as being an adults-only platform, which it isn't at all.
“I'm working very closely with OnlyFans to create an entertaining, engaging space for all those who follow me but want a more one-on-one communication.
“There will be behind-the-scenes content too so it’s for the gals as well! Makeup content, vlogs, live chats etc.”
‘Just giving the people what they want’
Dom is currently charging $14.99 for a monthly subscription, with one-on-one communication available for an additional fee.
To announce the official relaunch of the account on Thursday, Dom posted a photo of herself on Instagram posing in lingerie next to a mirror with a lipstick message reading: “Send nudes”
“So much hype around THE photo, just giving the people what they want,” she captioned the snap.
The make-up artist has also recreated the X-rated image that originally circulated amongst the MAFS cast and posted it directly on her OnlyFans account.
Dom’s huge success
Following her time on MAFS, Dom has already appeared as a guest on The Hundred, collaborated with major fashion retailer Showpo, and launched a podcast with fellow MAFS star Ella Ding.
Speaking with Yahoo Lifestyle around the launch of their podcast Sit With Us earlier this month, Dom and Ella said that they’re excited to have their own platform where they can be “uncensored and unfiltered”.
“First and foremost, our goal is engaging with our audience and the incredible people that have followed our journey on MAFS, but also not just following us because we were on this TV show, but following us because they resonated with the people that we really are,” Dom explained.
“Also providing advice,” Ella added. “We feel like both of us individually have lived very eventful lives, which we will share a lot on our podcast so that we can bring people up to speed on who we are and why we are who we are.
“We really have experienced it all, whether it has been marriage, divorce, single for 10 years, dating, f**kboys, disappointment, just all that sort of stuff. It's something that so many of us can relate to and there's just so much more that we want to share.”
The most recent Sit With Us episode is titled Putting OnlyFans to Bed (Part 2) and allows Dom to finally share her side of the ‘nude photo scandal’.
