Ruby Tuesday Matthews is certainly making the most out of the bad press surrounding her so-called ‘oystergate’ scandal.
The Instagram model, 27, made headlines on Thursday for holding up a Jetstar flight by leaving the airport to eat oysters at a fancy eatery.
Rather than letting the embarrassing moment fade away, Ruby toasted to the controversy on Monday by visiting a beachside restaurant in Byron Bay with her manager Roxy Jacenko, where they ate even more oysters.

Joined by two other publicists, the mother of two documented the merry outing on Instagram, posting a video of the group tucking into seafood platters while declaring: ‘It’s an oystergate!’
At one stage, Roxy, 40, presented Ruby with a large shopping bag from Gucci – perhaps in celebration of the influencer’s recent swathe of publicity.
‘Um Christmas came early,’ Ruby wrote alongside a photo of herself gleefully unwrapping her gift.

‘Oh my god Rox, I’m one lucky b**ch, and you are the best f**king management in the world,’ Ruby cooed as she filmed the shopping bag.
Ruby was due to fly from Byron Bay to Sydney on Thursday at 5pm but a technical issue caused the flight to be delayed.
The budget airline asked travellers to stay put while waiting for an engineer, and told passengers the new departure time would likely be about 7.30pm.

But Ruby and her travel companion left the airport to grab a bite to eat at a beachside restaurant, holding up the plane an extra 30 minutes as it waited on the tarmac for the pair to return.
In videos exclusively taken by Daily Mail Australia on last Thursday’s flight, frustrated passengers could be heard heckling the single mother-of-two as she boarded half an hour after the plane was due to take off.
Footage showed passengers shouting ‘how were the oysters’ and ‘what a day to be pretty’ as she entered the aircraft.

‘Flight delayed f**k my life’: While most other travellers remained at the terminal and purchased food from the cafe at the airport, Ruby and her travel companion decided to leave the airport to grab a bite to eat instead
When the plane touched down in Sydney, Ruby wasted no time in calling out Jetstar on her Instagram page, slamming the airline for their handling of the incident.
She blamed Jetstar for what had happened and told the other passengers to ‘grow up’.
‘I had a pretty traumatic flight experience, thanks Jetstar, you never cease to amaze me,’ she began.
One passenger was seen crying as she was desperate to get to Sydney to see her dying father (Pictured: Ruby and her friend boarding the plane half an hour later)
‘I’m sorry but it really was not my fault…we were told it was going to be taking off at 7.45pm, I had not eaten since my smoothie that morning because I had been in back-to-back meetings.
‘I was like ”f*** this, I’m going to get food out of the airport, it’s two hours until our flight takes off, I’m going to go”.
‘I walked out, I did not hear the second announcement that apparently said ”do not leave the airport”.
‘I was basically bullied’: Ruby claimed she was met with ‘very personal comments’ when she got on the plane
‘I didn’t hear that, I swear to god, I wouldn’t have left the airport, I’m not a d***head, I do have respect for everyone else.’
She claimed she was met with ‘very personal comments’ when she got on the plane.
‘I was basically bullied by about seven to 10 to 14 people at different times, then they made comments about my children. No Jetstar staff stopped this at any time. I copped it hard for about 15 minutes.
Ruby then shared a video of her and a friend holding their Virgin boarding passes while getting on the plane back to Byron Bay on Sunday
‘I was scared for myself because number one, I was by myself…number two, no one else who was later than me copped any abuse, it was just me alone.
On Sunday, Ruby took to Instagram on yet again to call out the airline, claiming the staff at Sydney Airport demanded they go through her phone before boarding a flight back to Byron Bay.
‘So I just went up to the Jetstar desk to complain about what had happened [last week] and the treatment,’ she told her 210,000 followers.

‘I was just met outside by the manager and airline staff who wanted to go through my phone to make sure that I just didn’t film them inside.
‘Apparently you’re not allowed to film Jetstar staff. Which is f***king kind of crazy when everyone on that plane filmed Jetstar staff.
‘Are you f***king off your heads Jetstar?’
Say cheese! Ruby posted a photo posing with her luggage outside Sydney Airport with the caption ‘Smiling because we aren’t flying S**TSTAR @jetstaraustralia’

Ruby also hashtagged ‘oystergate’ and ‘s**tstar’.
