MAFS' Martha and Michael take swipe at Olivia on Instagram: 'Not calm'

·3-min read

Married At First Sight power couple Martha Kalifatidis and Michael Brunelli have called out this year’s most controversial bride Olivia Frazer on social media over her behaviour at Sunday night's commitment ceremony.

The 27-year-old teaching student shocked the experts when she openly admitted that she had no empathy after exposing Domenica Calarco's nude photo and sharing it amongst the cast.

Taking to her Instagram Stories during the episode, Martha shared a step-by-step tutorial on how to make a drink that helps her get to sleep because she’s been having some trouble lately.

The season six star went on to make a dig at Olivia at the end of the video when she sat down to watch MAFS.

“This drink is so good, the chilli is everything,” she said on the couch after taking a sip. “But Olivia is ruining the f**king effects because I’m not calm watching this.”

She also shared her direct thoughts about Olivia’s comments in the caption on the video, writing: “‘I have no empathy’… Um sorry!”


Meanwhile, Michael also took to his social media on Sunday night to share his shocked reaction to Olivia’s remark about empathy.

“Me, a former teacher, trying to figure out how someone who doesn’t have the emotional intelligence to feel empathy wants to become a teacher…” he captioned a photo of himself looking confused.

‘She is scum’

The pair’s posts come shortly after Domenica spoke candidly with Yahoo Lifestyle about her thoughts on the nude photo scandal and the behaviour of others at the explosive dinner party.

“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 said.

“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!’.”

Domenica went on to say that while Brent, Al and Selina have since reached out and apologised to her, she is yet to hear from anyone else.

“I know Olivia said in interviews [last week] 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,” she said.

“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.”

Married At First Sight airs at 7pm on Sunday and 7:30pm on Monday to Wednesday on Channel Nine and 9Now.
