Married At First Sight Has A Big Problem Gaslighting Women


Married at First Sight has a serious issue that isn’t named Jessika or Ines.

It’s ‘gaslighting’. 

What is gaslighting you may ask? Well, the simplest way to put it is the psychological manipulation of someone to the point where they doubt their own sanity and frankly, we see it week after week on MAFS.



But we’re going to be looking at the worst case with Heidi and Mike.


See Heidi and Mike seemed like an ‘okay’ couple at the ceremony but things quickly went downhill after that at their honeymoon. Heidi opened up to Mike about her less than happy past where Mike responded by asking her to “shorten her points out” and get to a conclusion.

Throughout the show, we see increasingly, troubling behaviour from Mike in the way that he seems to treat others like when he denied he said anything negative about Jess, told Heidi what she wanted to hear and then the show flipped it.

Blink 182 times a minute.

This comes to a head at the commitment ceremony, Heidi explained how she felt to the “experts” where she was met with questions and accusations from John about how this is “in her nature” when things get serious.

And frankly, that’s not on.

Not happy, Jan.

There is a claim that the “experts” don’t see what happens outside of dinner parties and ceremonies but I don’t buy that. For them to put the blame on her is a horrible thing. There are things that are happening inside and outside of her view that are influencing her opinion (which if she feels uncomfortable, there are plenty of reasons to back it up) and she gets told that?

It’s a treatment of a person that we really can’t get behind and they really need to look into how they conduct themselves and the show as a whole because it’s disgusting.

Dab those haters away.

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.
