Jules Robinson takes a SAVAGE swipe at Mel Lucarelli after controversially dumping her as a bridesmaid from her wedding at the last minute
Jules Robinson has taken a savage swipe at former friend Melissa Lucarelli after dumping her as a bridesmaid for her wedding.
On the A Current Affair special televising her wedding on Tuesday, the 38-year-old addressed the public controversy.
‘In response to that question, do you know what? All that matters is my nearest and dearest are here right now,’ Jules said coldly.

She then turned her attention to co-star Heidi Latcham, who served as a bridesmaid for her on her special day.
Holding up a photo of Heidi on her phone, Jules said: ‘She’s my bridesmaid… Love that woman.’
Jules and Mel have had a very public falling out, after she was dumped as a bridesmaid before the wedding.
In a heartbreaking Instagram post on Sunday, a tearful Melissa described Jules’ decision to abruptly drop her as a bridesmaid as ‘cold’ and ‘hurtful’.
That’s not Mel! Rather than address the controversy regarding Mel, Jules instead held out her phone and a picture of Heidi
‘I’ve had so many messages and people keep asking me what the story is. So yes, it is true, Jules dumped me as a bridesmaid,’ she began.
‘As for why, I’m honestly not sure… she kept changing her reasons and none of them made sense.
‘It really all just came out of the blue and I didn’t see it coming at all. Of course you’re allowed to change your mind about who you want as a bridesmaid, but I just feel like the way it was done was really cold and rather hurtful.’

Melissa was especially upset that Jules had dumped her so close to the wedding day, with her gaining considerable support from fans.
Mel has also been backed-up by her co-stars including Jessika Power, Tamara Joy, Ning Surasiang, Elizabeth Sobinoff and Mike Gunner.
Melissa confirmed to NW Magazine late last month that Jules had axed her from her wedding, just weeks before the big day.
‘One day we were texting about family and babies, then two days later she was dumping me as a bridesmaid!’ the 38-year-old told the magazine.

‘Just because I said it on the show doesn’t mean I have to do it,’ Jules is said to have told Melissa via text message while dumping her from the bridal party.
A source close to Melissa told Daily Mail Australia recently that she felt betrayed by her former friend.
‘She feels like Jules used and betrayed her… It really hurt her feelings because she thought their friendship was real.’
‘She already got burned by Dino [Hira] on Married At First Sight, and now she’s been dumped by her best friend from the show. She can’t catch a break!’
