Natasha Spencer, formerly married at first sight, recently accused Channel Nine’s show of “ normalizing domestic violence. ”
And now the 27-year-old is turning her attention to the toxic beauty industry, revealing that four years ago she stopped getting lip filler after a ‘botched’ procedure.
The influencer told me The Daily Telegraph Wednesday, she would like her to “stop earlier because I looked distorted.”

Natasha also acknowledged that there is “a lot more pressure” on women to fill their pout now than ever before.
She partially blamed Instagram for that pressure, claiming that “ a lot of people go to plastic surgeons with pictures of themselves with a filter on them. ”
Last year, Natasha became marketing and communications manager for Lip MD, a lip-enhancing product that is free from dermal filler.
The product uses a two-step process of an applied lip ‘serum’ combined with ‘gentle suction’ via a vacuum that plumps the lips ‘for about six hours’.

The former MAFS contestant, who appeared on the show last year, has also weighed in on the debate over Channel Nine’s duty of care towards contestants.
Following current star Bryce Ruthven’s alleged gaslight behavior towards ‘wife’ Melissa Rawson on the show, Natasha has argued that Nine did not act in her duty of care to her last year.
Natasha claims she had a total nervous breakdown during filming and claims the production didn’t properly deal with a disturbing incident on set.
Daily Mail Australia has contacted Channel Nine for comment.

Natasha has spoken out against the production for failing to implement trigger alerts before episodes or for acknowledging potentially harmful behavior being broadcast.
“Instead, they normalized domestic violence on our screens,” she said. “They’ve made people think this is normal because it appears on our televisions.”
Natasha went on to smash arguments that contestants ‘know what they are signing up for’ when applying for a dramatic reality TV show like MAFS.
Melissa Rawson was paired with Bryce Ruthven on the show and the couple still appears to be together in real life
While current contestant Melissa Rawson, who was married to Bryce Ruthven and in all likelihood is still dating him, has not accused the show of malpractice, more than 10,000 people have signed a petition on her behalf.
“Nobody reports on national television to be a victim of psychological abuse,” she said.
She argued that the experts who made the Melissa and Bryce match, as professional psychologists, should have recognized that she would be “in danger.”
“She’s clearly an anxious attachment style and has a lot of insecurities … They also screened Bryce, who is a highly regarded narcissist, and they brought them together,” she claimed.
On Tuesday night’s episode, after weeks of tension, Bryce planted an uninvited kiss on fellow contestant Beck’s cheek in an apparent attempt at humor.

Natasha has repeatedly criticized the show and the network for allegedly falling short of their duty of care to her when she suffered a nervous breakdown during filming.
Natasha is one of more than 10,000 people who signed the petition demanding an apology from the network and the program.
She encouraged her 80,900 followers to do the same and send a clear message that ‘we don’t want to see this on our screens’.
Bryce has been widely criticized since the show’s very first episode for appearing to host and manipulate his bride.
On Tuesday’s episode, after weeks of suspense, Bryce planted an unwanted kiss on fellow contestant Beck Zemek’s cheek in an apparent attempt at humor.
