MAFS Lessons: How Crappy Friends Can Ruin A Relationship

Calling all sassy hairdressers and evil stepsisters!

Another day, another MAFS. Now that episode two has ended, let’s take note of the lessons learnt from Amanda and Tash, Mikey and Natasha, and all their adjacent friends.

If you need a little catching up from last night’s MAFS episode, we’ve spoke about it on this episode of It’s Been A Big Day For…

For this MAFS episode, we’re learning about how crappy friends can ruin a relationship. Let’s begin.

Rule One: Friends Should Make Sure Everything’s Perfect

Its the rule of the bridesmaids and the groomsmen to make sure that every element on a wedding day is picture-perfect. This includes making sure that hair and makeup are looking nice, shoes are comfortable and have been broken into and finally, making sure everything worn has no creases.

Evidently, Amanda’s bridal party aren’t trained in the fine art of weddings as they allowed the bride to walk out in an unironed blazer. Bad move team!

Rule Two: Crappy Friends Can Sabotage The Wedding

Intentions don’t always correlate to actions. We’re sure that Natasha’s friend/hairdresser just wanted the best for her, but it certainly didn’t look that way. As her new husband walked down the aisle, Natasha’s friend Lincoln, dressed in a blazer with no shirt, yelled: “Natasha will eat him alive.” Uncool, Lincoln.

Further, at the reception, he tried to undermine Mikey (the new husband), by saying “She needs someone to step up to the plate on her level and not be a pushover.” C’mon Lincoln! Now is not the time to throw off your friend’s new partner. 

Rule Three: Some Friends Try And Make It All About Them

I imagine weddings are stressful. There are so many people to meet, so many people to thank and so many speeches to be had. As a result, there can be times when the spotlight sits on other people. Bad friends are the kind of people that crave the spotlight at every step of the way. A case study to showcase this would be Tash’s bridesmaids, aka Cinderella’s stepsisters.

After not getting enough attention from Tash’s new, family-oriented bride, these two put Amanda on blast. After interrogating her, they tried to be the hero, going up to Tash and twisting their conversation with Amanda so that it causes drama with her new bride. Not cool at all. 

Rule Four: Good Friends Paint You In A Good Light

The best kind of friends at a wedding are the kind that are open to meeting strangers and have your back. For this example, let’s look at Mikey’s groomsmen.

Sure, these fellas like to take the piss out of Mikey by bringing up his childhood habits that lasted way too long. But, at the end of the day, they want what’s best for him, so they always finish conversations by talking him up. 

Catch you back tomorrow for another MAFS lesson! If you need to revise last night’s lesson, we’ve got you covered:

Robert Pattinson Says He Smells Like A Crayon And I Need To Know Which Colour

Another wild yarn from R-Patz.

Robert Pattinson has gained quite a reputation for spinning wild yarns during interviews, but his most recent comments on his body odour have me truly shaken.

In a recent interview with Allure the star of the upcoming The Batman film said, “Lots of people tell me I smell like a crayon.”

The interviewer – understandably bewildered by this statement – then asked, “Like you’re made of wax?”

To which R-Patz responded, “Yes! Like I’m embalmed.”

I have so many questions. What colour crayon does Pattinson smell like? What brand? Is he using lots of crayons? And most importantly, who are these multiple people who are telling him he smells like crayon!? Is that an insult, or a compliment?

It’s not the first time Robert Pattinson’s scent has come up in conversation. Back in 2009, E! News reported that an unidentified source who worked “very closely” with the actor on New Moon said “he stinks.”

“I mean, it’s awful,” the source said. “He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy.”

“He completely reeks,” an unidentified crew member added. Yikes.

It’s been over a decade since then, so we can only hope Robert Pattinson has swapped his lack of showering for an obsession with crayons. 

Speaking of celebrity scents, celebrity tattoo artist Lauren Winzer dishes on what Post Malone smells like on It’s Been A Big Day For…below:

During his interview with Allure, Pattinson was also asked about being recently named the “most handsome man” in the world according to science.

“It’s weird,” he said. “I never was really up for the good-looking-guy roles, because I’ve always been quite awkward when meeting people.”

“My Harry Potter role was a good-looking guy, and it was a shock that it was quite easy to get. And then in Twilight, [Edward is] beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. When I turned up for the auditions, I had done a job where I’d dyed my hair black, because I had an inch and a half of roots, and I had waxed my body. And then I had a few months where I’d been drinking beer all day, so I had this hairless, chubby body. I looked like a baby with a wig on.”

Hairless, chubby, waxed or smelling like a crayon – we’ll take Robert Pattinson any which way.
