Sam Frost has been forced – again – to put to bed rumours that she and Sasha Mielczarek have split. Only this time she’s come out with a very strong, very fierce bite.
New Idea reported the couple were “spending less time together” and had “unfollowed each other on Instagram”. The magazine also mentioned the radio host had recently attended the races “with Sash nowhere in sight”, and had hung out with Bachelorette runner-up Dave Billsborrow over the weekend.
The report was subsequently picked up and run with by other media. Because DRAMA.
The only problem is, this drama doesn’t exist in the real world. Not even a little bit. Just take Frost’s word for it.
“New Idea get a f–king life! For the one millionth time, Sash and I have not split. In fact we are stronger than ever,” the Rove and Sam co-host began a furious Facebook post.
“Spoilers; Social media isn’t the real world. The media isn’t the real world. What’s real is the time you spend with your partner, the challenges you work through and the unconditional love and support we have for one another.
“We actually prefer to keep social media out of our relationship, because that is what works for us.”
The 27-year-old stressed she and Mielczarek were “incredibly happy together”, adding they “don’t have to prove the strength of our relationship for the entertainment of strangers via the fake bullshit world of social media.”
“Next week you’ll be reporting we are getting married. Or expecting a baby. It’s absolutely pathetic!”
It’s little wonder Frost is so fed up. She has had to keep hitting back at ridiculous rumours about her relationship — like that time in June it was falsely reported she was pregnant, and just last week she begged everyone to “chill out” over the fact she and Mielczarek were having a little alone time. Um, like every other normal couple does.
There has, however, been drama of another kind — one that Frost was happy to chat about on air this morning.
She told listeners of her breakfast show Rove & Sam that she experienced many women’s nightmare during her long weekend – a pregnancy scare.
It began after she felt extremely sick and woke up one morning vomiting. She called Sash’s mum for help trying to work out why she was feeling so unwell.
That’s when it struck her.
“It’s like a lightbulb just flashed above me. And I was like ‘Oh, man’, and I started looking at my calendar,” she said.
“And I’m going, OK, yes, we did do it then, then, then, then, then, then, then. We’re not overly cautious because we like to have a good time. We get caught up in the moment.
(Side note: yeah, definitely doesn’t sound like we’ll be seeing a break-up anytime soon.)

“And then I’m going, ‘Oh, God. My boobs are a little bit sore. Is it because I’m due for my period, or something else?'”
So after consulting Dr Google, she threw some clothes on — over her pyjamas, of course — and headed out to buy a pregnancy kit.
In her state of panic, she started to imagine their life with a baby: Where would they live? Would she keep working?
But when she eventually peed on the stick, all her fears were put to rest.
“My whole life flashed in front of my eyes … And then I was like, ‘Oh, my baby’s gone.’ You didn’t have a baby, you idiot!”
Oh Sam, don’t ever change.
