Married At First Sight’s Mel Lucarelli has unleashed on former friend Jules Robinson in a raw and emotional video.

In the clip posted to her Instagram story, the 38-year-old revealed she’s still not over being dumped as bridesmaid from Jules’ wedding to Cam Merchant, which occurred over the weekend and will air on A Current Affair on Tuesday.

“It is true, Jules dumped me as bridesmaid,” a teary-eyed Mel told her followers, after previously revealing the news to NW.

“As for why, I honestly not sure. She kept changing her reasons and none of them made sense. It really all came out of the blue and I didn’t see it coming at all.”

While Mel insisted she was fine with Jules changing her mind, she said she took issue with the way it was done.

“Of course you are allowed to change your mind about who you want as your bridesmaid but the way it was done was really cold and really hurtful. Especially doing it so close to the actual wedding day and especially in this case where I was asked to be a bridesmaid in such a public way,” she said.

“I guess it just makes the public dumping of you as a bridesmaid for no reason that little bit more embarrassing, hurtful, confusing.”

Close to tears, Mel then declared, “I wish I was never asked to be a bridesmaid in the first place so I wasn’t in this position.”

Mel previously confessed to NW that it was a “shock” to be given her marching orders.

“One day we were texting about family and babies, then two days later she was dumping me as a bridesmaid,” the upset star told NW exclusively.

Along with Heidi Latcham, Mel was asked to be Jules’ bridesmaid in the Married At First Sight finale, but according to Mel, Jules later sent her a “cold” text message after retracting her offer.

In the text, Jules tells Mel, “Just cause I said it on a show doesn’t meant [sic] I have to do it.” Ouch!

“Not only was the text cold, but she used our friendship for her own publicity,” alleged Mel.

“She was posting about how amazing it was and how much she loved me, but it was clearly all an act. I feel completely blindsided by this, as our relationship and everything was real to me.”
