It’s a big deal to appear on national television and say you want to marry a complete stranger. Perhaps even bigger is the ability and willingness to open up to camera, and be brutally honest about the things that have made you and broken you in the past.
On Tuesday night’s episode on Married at First Sight, that’s exactly what Simone did. Now the Sydney make-up artist has also spoken quite frankly about the pain of being cheated on in her previous relationship in an interview with OK! magazine.
Simone admitted she learned of her ex-boyfriends's betrayal by reading his text messages.
"I had this feeling, so I went through his phone, which I'd never done before," she said of her ex-boyfriend, who she had a three and a half year relationship with.
"I found all these texts between him and other women - texts that spoke about him wanting to meet them while I was at work."
On Tuesday night's show, Simone admitted that the entire experience had her completely blind-sided and devastated.
“By the age of 29, I honestly thought I’d be with the person I was going to spend the rest of my life with," she told the program.
