Laura Ann Rullo was on Matty J’s 2017 season of The Bachelor Australia, and was eliminated early in the series.
But, as often happens with reality television, Laura attracted a few new Instagram followers and developed some friendships with her cast mates.
And then, last weekend, Laura had a birthday party.
Posting about her birthday celebration on Instagram on Tuesday, Laura wrote, “So this photo was taken on the evening of what was supposed to be an amazing birthday, but gosh it was anything but!”
Accompanied by a photograph of her early in the night, Laura wrote that all she wanted this year was to feel special and have an amazing party with the people she loves.
Instead, more than 50 per cent of the close friends she invited did not respond, and another 10 or so confirmed they were coming, and did not show up. According to Laura, they didn’t even send a message to let her know they couldn’t make it.
