Keira Maguire and Davina Rankin share an unusual bond. Both were cast as ‘villains’ on Australian reality television and no, we haven’t met them, but it sure feels as if we know them. A little bit.
Now, the pair are standing in solidarity in a mission to convince us: not everything seen on reality TV is actually real.
And we’ve learned Keira, 31, called Davina to offer some support and advice following the 26-year-old’s recent fall-out with Australia’s television-consuming public.
Keira, who appeared in the 2016 season of The Bachelor and in last year’s season of I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here, is certainly experienced in dealing with fickle, highly opinionated viewers. And she is now once more on our screens as part of Channel 10’s Bachelor in Paradise.
Davina we know from her recent stint on Nine’s Married at First Sight in which she provided deliciously scandalous television by having an affair with another ‘married’ man on the show who she wasn’t initially matched with.
The two reality TV queens were acquainted before their fame, with a mutual friend introducing the pair years ago. But now, it seems, the ‘villains’ are sticking together, with Keira telling The Sydney Morning Herald she called Davina after MAFS stopped filming and when the online trolling began.
