Australia’s favourite runner-up spoke about what she did after Richie let her down, in an interview with Pop Sugar.
“I went back to the hotel in Bali and rang my mummy! And I was on the first flight out in the morning.”
And it was a blow to them too.
“My family are devastated this morning,” the 29-year-old said.
“They’re all really heartbroken this morning, they’re all in shock, so I’m going to be doing a lot of consoling.”
Despite how heartbroken her family (and the lady herself) are feeling, the WA woman said she regrets nothing from the experience and wished Richie all the best.
“I gave Richie everything of me and he chose a beautiful girl,” she said.
“Alex is absolutely amazing and I just hope they’re going to be so, so happy together.”
When asked if she agreed with many Richie critics who say she had been led on, Nikki assured us all she was no one’s fool.
“No, I don’t feel angry towards him or misled or anything like that,” she told Pop Sugar.
“I think that he did care about me and I believe the words he said to me, otherwise, he’s a damn good actor . . . And he’s not that!”
Richie sure wasn’t acting when he let Nikki down, with the real estate agent revealing she knew when saw him it wasn’t going to work out.
