Married At First Sight fans were left in complete shock during Wednesday night’s dramatic dinner party when Olivia Frazer admitted to sharing a nude photo of Domenica Calarco from her private OnlyFans account amongst the cast, creating a major divide over who was at fault.
Now, Domenica has spoken out about the incident and revealed whether or not she plans on exploring her legal options against the 27-year-old teaching student.
“Yes, I have gotten legal advice and I'm taking that advice and I’ll pursue that as necessary,” she tells Yahoo Lifestyle exclusively. “That's all I can say.”
A petition was launched following the explosive episode calling on the eSafety Commissioner to take action against Olivia for sharing Domenica’s NSFW image without her consent.
The change.org campaign claims that Olivia is guilty of ‘image based abuse’, which the eSafety Commissioner defines as “when an intimate image or video is shared without the consent of the person pictured”.
Speaking about the petition, which has over 40,000 signatures at the time of writing, Domenica says that the amount of support she’s received from the Australian public is “overwhelming”.
“I feel like a lot of people are seeing this for what it is and I'm really grateful for that,” she reflects. “I’ve seen the petition and it's just gone gangbusters.
“It’s incredible and it definitely gives me faith in humanity, to be honest, because the last few weeks of the experiment were really tough. After this, the dynamic of that group was really hard and it was hard to be around people that didn't see the situation for what it was.”
Domenica went on to admit that although it was “tough” watching the dinner party on TV, she also found it to be extremely “validating”.
“I was very proud of the way that I handled myself and I think there were a lot of people sitting at that table that just kind of backtracked and dug themselves deeper in a hole of lies,” she details.
“It was astounding to me that no one was understanding that it wasn't about the photo, it was about the fact that they shared it. And I literally just wanted to shake them and be like, ‘I couldn't care less about the photo! I don't care! It’s about the fact that you shared the image, you idiots!’.
“It boils my blood to this moment. Watching it last night I was still astounded, I truly do not understand that.”
‘She is scum’
While she hasn’t received an apology from the groom that first broke the news at the dinner party, Cody - “He’s disgusting” - or the bride who seemingly attacked her the most at the table, Tamara - “She’s a complete fool” - Domenica has since made amends with fellow participants Brent, Al and Selina.
“They’re apologetic for being involved and they’re apologetic for the way that they handled the situation, but I’m yet to hear from anyone else,” she reveals.
“I know Olivia said in interviews today that she's apologised multiple times to me. Well, guess what? I don't believe any of your apologies. Don’t even waste your air.
“Literally, I want nothing to do with her. I could not give a s**t if she apologised to me, I do not need that from her. She is scum. I do not need her around me, I do not need her energy and I do not have time for her at all.”
Just when viewers thought the on-screen drama may have reached its peak as the season enters its final few weeks, Domenica asserts that there is plenty more to come.
“Hold on, because it ain’t slowing down from here, let me just say that,” she teases. “It’s highly entertaining, I’ll admit that. Like yeah, it’s tough for me to watch, but wow.”
Married At First Sight airs at 7pm on Sunday and 7:30pm on Monday to Wednesday on Channel Nine and 9Now.
