MAFS' Melissa hits out at Samantha after explosive girls night

Married at First Sight's Melissa Rawson has hit out at fellow bride Samantha Harvey online, after a bombshell revelation derailed the girls get together during Wednesday night's episode.

Melissa took to her Instagram account after the explosive scene aired, in which Samantha appeared to confirm Bryce did in fact have a 'secret girlfriend' waiting on the outside, slamming the other woman for 'holding on' to the information 'for weeks'.

"I'm a good person. I don't make assumptions. I don't need to yell to get my point across," Melissa wrote alongside a photo of her smiling from the episode.

"I don't hold onto information about my friend for weeks and think that telling them at a girls' night (in front of everyone!) is the right thing to do.

"You can be the jury, but I am the judge. I'll see fit to do what I want and your opinion is just that... an opinion."


Within an hour, Samantha shared Melissa's Instagram post on her own Instagram Stories, captioning it with a few face palm emojis, indicating things aren't going so well between the pair as the episode might have indicated.

The girls night saw all of the departed brides return for a get together, including Samantha who lives in Canberra where Bryce and his friends are also based.

Samantha told Melissa she heard from one of Bryce's close friends (specifically Jason, who Melissa only met the week before) that the rumours he had a girl waiting for him to leave the experiment were true.

"I don't know if you know about a girl back in Canberra that he's been talking to and messaging," Samantha said, in front of the group.

"He has been messaging her quite frequently, and trying to get time off to go to the rugby with her. He said that he has to do this show for his exposure for his career in radio.

"Basically, she's waiting for him to come off the show. This was a week and a half ago. I heard it from one of Bryce's very good mates, Jason."

Samantha went on to reveal she even knew the girl's name but viewers ween't given that little bit of information.

Melissa broke down in tears before telling producers "I am the biggest fool".

"I won't do it anymore," she added, walking away from the cameras.

While Samantha tried to comfort Melissa on the night, it seems things are now icy between the women.

Speaking to TV Week magazine previously Samantha had said she wanted to tell Melissa what she found out.

"That's when I thought, 'No, I'm not going to let what happened to me happen to Melissa – I'm going to go in and tell her exactly what I've heard, instead of her finding out after everyone else has'," she said.

However, insiders revealed that Samantha had actually wanted to tell Melissa in private before producers made her do it on camera and publicly.

"Samantha was given the full lowdown on Bryce's secret girlfriend situation beforehand and told to bring it all up on camera," the source told New Idea.

"[Samantha's] plan was to quietly take Melissa aside and talk to her, but producers wanted a big scene."
