She was branded a ‘bridezilla’ after rudely correcting her husband’s table manners and describing retail workers as ‘unambitious’ during Monday’s Married At First Sight premiere.
And Tamara Djordjevic, 29, has now offered a bizarre excuse for her snobbish remarks, insisting she was just ‘hungry’ and didn’t mean what she said to husband Brent Vitiello, 33, on their wedding day.
Appearing on Tuesday’s Today show, Tamara explained: ‘I would just like to clarify so that I can still go shopping again, I have absolutely no qualms about retail.’
‘I was so hungry’: Married At First Sight’s Tamara Djordjevic, 29, (pictured) has offered a bizarre excuse for her snobbish behaviour after she rudely corrected her husband Brent Vitiello’s table manners and made disparaging remarks about retail workers during Monday night’s premiere
‘Brent said, “The way I look down on people in retail”. That is not what I was saying. I couldn’t articulate myself properly! I was so hungry, I hadn’t eaten all day,’ she claimed.
The blonde admitted that she ‘dug herself a hole’ by making the disparaging comments about retail workers, adding: ‘It was not how I was supposed to articulate what I was saying.’
Noticeably absent from the live interview was Brent, who according to Tamara was simply ‘too tired’ to show up.

‘Brent’s having a sleep-in this morning,’ Tamara awkwardly replied when co-hosts David Campbell and Ally Langdon asked why her husband wasn’t present.
Tamara, who on Monday was spotted running errands without her wedding ring, added: ‘So he wasn’t up for waking up too early this morning’.
‘It’s not that early,’ Ally replied, while David joked: ‘Oh, please don’t let us inconvenience him!’

Tamara also promised viewers that they would see a softer side to her personality as the season progresses.
‘I think you will see a lighter side of me, a more relaxed side of me. A less hungry side of me,’ she mused.
Tamara was immediately disappointed by her affable groom when they met at the altar during Monday night’s premiere.

‘He does seem like an average kind of guy. Average just isn’t for me. I’m not average. I don’t do average,’ the surgically-enhanced blonde told producers.
Just moments after exchanging vows, Tamara asked Brent where he lived and what he did for a living.
The fussy blonde was lost for words when Brent told her he worked at a popular Sydney nightclub, which she assumed meant he was a party boy.

While Brent’s line of work occasionally requires him to go to nightclubs, he is actually an events manager who previously ran a successful business in Dubai.
When he clarified this point, Tamara was visibly relieved – but the worst was yet to come for the newlyweds.
Later, when the couple sat down for dinner with two friends, a frustrated Tamara called out Brent for his lack of etiquette when he used the wrong fork.
Not acceptable! The most awkward moment came later in the ceremony when judgmental Tamara turned on Brent after finding out he worked at a nightclub – which turned out to be only half true
‘You don’t seem to know much about your cutlery,’ she snapped.
‘You might like things one way and I like them the other way, but my way has to be the right way,’ she added.
Tamara went on to insist: ‘You’ll learn very quickly that I always wear the pants in a relationship.’

She then shocked her husband by saying she could never date someone who works in retail because it’s ‘below her’.
Brent and his best man Levi Neufeld later went for a private chat to discuss how things were going.
Brent said he was horrified by Tamara’s snobbery and decided to test her by refusing to apologise or make excuses the next time she criticised him.
Farcical: Later in the evening, Tamara berated Brent for a minor mistake while cutting their wedding cake, but the tattooed hospitality worker refused to say sorry – which drove her mad

Their spat descended into a farce as Brent refused to apologise to his wife for handing her a knife the wrong way.
When producers asked him what he thought about his bride, Brent said he’d married a ‘psychopath’.
