Bel Clarke is no stranger to Kiwi reality TV shows - but she says her second quest to find love has taken its toll
The former bachelorette says she has been ditched by her ‘closest friends’ in a bid to find love for the second time on Married At First Sight NZ, according to Woman’s Day.
“They told me I was stupid and that they didn’t agree with it.”
“They’ve left my life now. This has cost me some very good friends – well what I thought were good friends,” says the Christchurch-born blonde.
Clarke’s own family were also shocked that she was interested at putting her love life back on television for all to see.
Her father needed a few bourbons to process the news before saying “oh, it’s ok.”
Bel then jokes, “I don’t think he’s stopped drinking since!”
At the end of the day, the love-seeking lass hasn’t given up hope yet: “I love being in love. I want that feeling again.”
Married At First Sight NZ airs on Sunday and Monday nights on Three.
My face says it all! I was just as nervous to meet the other wives as I was to meet my husband! Didn't realise that they would turn out to be such incredible friends and some of the most incredible support! Love you wifeys, I cannot wait to watch all of your weddings! What an incredible journey we're about to watch!
