MAFS’S Dan & Jess: faking it for fame?
The controversial contestant has fans worried about her! ULTIMATE MAFS FINALE PARTY GUIDE!U
Her last name might be basic, but Ines Basic was anything but when she arrived at a court appearance on March 26. The 29-year-old was giving off major Angelina Jolie vibes as she arrived looking glam in all black. Soooo extra!
But her “Hollywood-style” arrival at court – complete with bodyguard and limousine – quickly sparked debate on social media, with many wondering if the reality contestant is out of touch with, er, reality. “This girl has lost the plot,” blasted a MAFS fan. “Who does she think she is?”
Other comments took another turn, with some wondering if the legal assistant is struggling with her mental health. “Ines seems to have some serious issues,” alleged one. “We’re going to hear about her falling to pieces at some stage.”
The comments came after Ines was sentenced to 70 hours’ community service for drink driving, after ramming into her sister Ena’s parked car on Christmas Day last year because her sister had “ridiculed” her for appearing on reality TV. “I would never drink and drive, but the b***h pissed me off!” Ines shared.
While Magistrate Deborah Vasta told Ines during her sentencing to “get some perspective on life” and branded her an “absolute brat”, there are others who are more sympathetic to the fact that appearing on reality TV can be damaging to mental health.
“The trouble with reality TV is that it is not reality,” Clinical Psychologist Dr Janet Hall tells NW. “It is possible that a contestant may have an elevated sense of importance and believe their own ego enhancement because of their momentary fame. This might act as a drug, creating an obsessive desire for more fame.
“Some folks with sensitive nervous systems might become mentally ‘unhinged’ by this ‘fame opiate,’” Dr Hall continues. “It is possible that lasting mental health problems might be created in the future.” Yikes! Please take care of yourself, Ines...
OMG! DOES SAM BALL HAVE BAD, AHEM, TECHNIQUE?!
Hmmm, seems Sam Ball might need a lesson in cunnilingus! The MAFS groom’s former fling Ines hit out after he claimed their dalliance was “fake” and they never actually slept together. “Yeah, producers made you eat my p***y for four hours, hun,” Ines slammed. Umm, either Sam’s a super generous guy or his technique just wasn’t doing it for poor Ines! Sam has denied the X-rated claims, joking that he’s simply not cut out for the marathon sesh. “I would run out of breath or more likely get hungry, tired or bored,” he said, claiming Ines was simply “cut” because he didn’t sleep with her. Ouch!
