Patrick Dwyer sent Booka Nile a ‘feedback’ letter on this week’s Married At First Sight, telling her to stop being so ‘self-absorbed’ and to get to actually know her husband Brett Helling, instead of just ‘talking about how awesome she is’ all of the time.
The letter caused fireworks once it arrived, with Brett insisting he never spoke about Booka in such a way, and those ‘were Patrick’s words, not his’.
Patrick then explained he sent the letter to help his close friend out, after Brett previously chatted about his issues with Booka.
And this is now where it gets confusing.
Patrick sent the letter because he was looking out for Brett, who was one of his closest friends in the experiment, and didn’t mind calling Booka out, who he had virtually no relationship with.
Yet present day, aka five months after this week’s episodes were filmed, Patrick is now close friends with Booka and doesn’t really speak with Brett.
And it’s apparently all down to the letter.
We’re told by an insider that after this week’s episodes were filmed, Booka and Patrick had a chat where he apparently ‘admitted what he wrote in the letter is exactly how Brett painted her’.
Not just this, but we’re also told that Patrick’s wife Belinda Vickers reiterated this to Booka – and it then turned Booka’s already hanging-by-a-thread relationship with Brett pretty toxic.
But he still maintains they were not his words, so to be completely honest, we don’t know who to believe?
Other members of the cast have since sided with Booka and their friendships with Brett have fizzled out as a result, along with any ‘bromances’.
Usually we take information like this with a grain of salt as there’s always two sides to every story, but in February as the entire cast returned to Sydney to film the reunion – we witnessed the divide.
Whereas Booka partied with the likes of Patrick, Jake Edwards and Sam Carraro – Brett spent the week mostly on his own, only seeing the other participants once on-set with producers.
It’s all so… messy?
