No stranger to the world of social media, Davina Rankin is used to getting some heavy attention…but never this rough.

Now, the 25-year-old Married At First Sight star has taken to youtube to “break her silence” on life inside the MAFS bubble.

“Copping a large amount of hate is something that I’m not used to,” she said in the piece. “And to be honest, it really shook me. That’s why I’ve been distant and silent.”

The MAFS Bride left the show last week after a scandalous text affair with Dean Wells, opting to leave her relationship with Ryan Gallagher (much to his relief).

Since then, the regular social media butterfly had kept relatively quiet.

“It has been a hard and traumatic experience,” Davina admitted, but says that the support of her friends, family and OG supporters have got her through. 

“It just goes to show the importance of having a supportive community around you,” she said. “And when I started Brunch Co [her social media business]that’s what I wanted. I wanted to create a safe and loving environment for women to connect and network.”


“I never thought in a million years that I would need that community just as much if not more than you guys needed each other.”

“I know you guys know the real me and my friends and family know the real me,” she said. 

Hmm… poor Davina…or is this a case of be careful what you wish for?
