Married At First Sight

Lauren from MAFS goes rogue and drops some serious BOMBSHELLS about her time on the show

''Producers will go to extreme lengths to tell a story and they will edit you, manipulate you in any way that they can to tell that story.''

By Anita Lyons
During Sunday's shock commitment ceremony on Married at First Sight, fan-favourites Lauren Huntriss and Matthew Bennett decided to leave the experiment after Matt admitted that he wasn't attracted to his wife.
After admitting that she had previously been a lesbian and wanted Matt to take on a more dominating role in the bedroom, the pair's love affair ended abruptly.
But according to Loz, all was not as it seems.

In an interview with Jackie O and Beau Ryan on KIISFM on Tuesday morning, Lauren has come out swinging at the hit TV show that made her famous … and all without permission from Channel 9.
Defying their orders to stay mum, Lauren felt the need to bring justice to her reputation and give her side of the story.
"At the moment the public have only seen Matt's side of the story. I feel like I deserve to say my side," Lauren said. "I definitely looked like the bad guy in this relationship. I just want to clear all of this."
And clear all of this she did.

One of the hottest topics to come out of the Loz/Matt storyline was the fact that Lauren "used to be a lesbian". But now, the makeup artist wants to set the record straight.
"With the lesbian thing, I'm just going to clarify that," she told Jackie and Beau.
"So initially my answer was, when I was about 18 to 20 I had a bad experience with a guy and I just hated men as a result. And so I dated only women. That's what I said. That was it.
"My producer was like, 'Fantastic. Great. However, we're going to get you to re-enact that, say it again but use the word "lesbian". I was like, "I am not okay with that. I do not want to use that word. I do not label myself as a lesbian. It didn't feel right."

As for the swinging, Lauren told the co-hosts that producers used manipulation and editing to make it sound like that's what she wanted.
"So I was talking to Matt about some of my friends who are married and are into swinging...Everyone in relationships has different desires and needs...but it's not for me.
"I was never, ever proposing to Matt that we swing or have threesomes.
"All I asked from him was to be more dominant and show me more affection and that that wasn't asking for too much," Lauren said.

"I completely understand how it's been taken out of context and people have misunderstood what I've said. But you guys have to understand I was getting frustrated at this point and I was almost testing him in a way.
"In hindsight I know that's not okay and I regret obviously saying that," Lauren said.
Another issue Lauren had was her over-arching story line or lack thereof.
She felt that she was merely the bride married to a 29-year-old virgin and it was about his experience.
"We all have a role to play, this whole story with Matthew and I, was about Matthew and his virginity.
"You could see it from day one. It was all about him. His struggles, his issues, his self-development."
