"Mel is such a beautiful, bubbly girl, she's not about the drama," Jess gushed.

"She's so open and honest and genuine, and as seen as a bridesmaid, I wasn't actually that shocked."

'I stand by what I say. I feel like a lot what Jules can be calculating. I think she's learning now how to milk what's happening, 'she continued.

"Like, good on you, all the power to you if you can get things out of this opportunity then do it, but see somebody like Mel hurt and feel shut out and neglected, it's really, really s ** t."

Jules has been making headlines for all the wrong reasons this week, after leaked texts revealed how she'd dumped Melissa as a bridesmaid and report surfaced that she'd begged for freebies for her wedding.

Jessika first weighed on the Jules drama on Monday, branding the red-haired bride a 'hypocrite'.

Responding to an article about Jules' falling out with Melissa, Jessika ground: 'I actually have Mel on this.'

She continued: 'Throughout filming, Jules would say Martha (Kalifatidis) and I were only there for social media and endorsements, but since the show ended it seems that is all Jules is for also.

"It's really sad to see that Jules dropped Mel as a bridesmaid but not surprisingly, it seems everything that woman does these days is calculated and beneficial for her and her only."

Daily Mail Australia contacted Jules' manager, Benji Hart or THE.mgmt, for comment.

Drama! Jules was certainly judgmental of Jessika and the other twentysomething brides on MAFS, famously drawing a distinction between the 'women' on the show (i.e. herself, Melissa and Heidi Latcham) and the 'girls' (i.e. Jessika and Martha Kalifatidis)

During one dinner party, she said condescendingly: 'I just feel like there is a divide between everything that goes on (here). You've got girls and you've got women, that's the actual fact. That's the truth. "

A furious Martha replied: 'What does that mean? The way you act is better than how we act? '

Backtracking slightly, Jules answered: 'No, not at all, just that you've got a maturity level … I never said I act better. It's not an insult … okay, I didn't say anything. "

It comes after Jules and her fiancé, Cameron Merchant, angered a small business owner by asking for 'freebies' for their wedding day next month.

As previously reported by Daily Mail Australia, the couple recently contacted a vendor hoping to obtain complimentary services – which would have cost paying thousands of dollars – in exchange for publicity on Instagram.

In addition to a plug on social media, the reality stars promised the business would get a very letter mention in Channel Nine's coverage of their nuptials.

The business owner, who asked to remain anonymous, said their company had declined the request, adding that they would be surprised if any of their competitors agreed to Jules' terms.

Despite trying to pull off their wedding as cheaply as possible, Jules and Cameron are making more money than ever before thanks to their brand partnerships.

In the past two months alone, Jules has been announced as a Weight Watchers ambassador, joined forces with Olay to become a 'face' or the skincare line, and launched its own shapewear brand, Figur.

The couple also have teamed up with Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei, meal delivery service Hello Fresh and various fitness brands.

It certainly seems they have come a long way since their days on MAFS, when Jules was billed as a 'business owner' and Cameron a 'former pro cricketer'.

The pair's request for free services is just the latest in a string or controversies surrounding their wedding day.

This week, fellow Married At First Sight contestant Melissa Lucarelli slammed Jules for dumping her as a bridesmaid via text message.

In a scathing interview with NW magazine, Melissa accused her former co-star or selfishly using their friendship to her advantage.

"One day we were texting about family and babies, then two days later she was dumping me as a bridesmaid!" she said.

"Now Cam and Jules are making money, she doesn't need me anymore and she doesn't want me to get any publicity."

Jules and Cam were initially scheduled to marry in September, on the one-year anniversary of filming their MAFS wedding, but postponed the ceremony until November.

They are said to have recently moved the location from the Hunter Valley to Sydney's CBD after signing a lucrative deal with Channel Nine to televise the event.

According to New Idea, the last minute venue made it 'logistically easier to film' as it 'was going to be too costly for the whole crew to travel so far away.'
