Sam Frost and social media haven’t seemed to marry since the radio host burst onto our radar after The Bachelor and The Bachelorette.
Frost made headlines last month after she noticeably de-activated her social media accounts after relentless trolling and a New Idea report that Frost and her boyfriend Sasha Mielczarek were “spending less time together” and had “unfollowed each other on Instagram”.
And now, Frost has admitted that she temporarily re-activated her accounts and had a much more innocent, but still awkward, encounter with the medium than she anticipated.
“I wanted to print some photos, but all my best photos are on my Instagram.”
So, it was easy. She logged on, grabbed the photos she wanted and logged back out.
"But then, as I went to de-activate it I noticed I got so many direct messages from people who were like, "she's back!"
"Then I realised, anyone who has been tagged in a photo ever in the five years I have had Instagram got notified. Poor Sasha, he would've got notified about a million times but that's okay because I can easily say, 'hey, I re-activated because of this.'
"But obviously I've dated people in the past four or five years.... if I've just tagged you in a picture just ignore it. I'm so embarrassed."
Frost's awkward encounter with Instagram comes just weeks after she responded to the New Idea rumours in a furious open letter posted on her public Facebook account.
“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,” she wrote.
“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.”
