‘I regret smashing the glass with every being in me. And I wish I never did it. Not because of what happened afterwards, but because that is not who I am,’ she said.
‘Yes, it was my action. It was my behaviour, but it’s not who I am to my core.
Domenica said that she was initially ‘triggered’ by a ‘petty’ comment by Carolina Santos before she was sent over the edge with Olivia’s comments.
Speaking on her Sit With Us podcast, Domenica said she regrets smashing the glass and explained that it was a way of her trying to ‘protect herself from being hurt’
‘When it came to going to that level of being so petty, that is when I think the triggering of a lot of my past traumas really started to come out,’ she said.
Domenica said she felt like she was back in high school with year seven bullies.
‘I feel it really makes me emotional even to this day, because that is the actual crux of making a person feel on the outside of a group feeling like they are socially isolated.
During the argument, Olivia (pictured) called out Domenica for the way that she was speaking to Carolina
‘I think that is what really triggered a lot in me. And then obviously, s**t hit the fan from there when Olivia said some pretty vile things about my voice and about that I scream at Jack [Millar],’ she continued.
‘I don’t try to make excuses for that behaviour,’ she said of the incident. ‘I watched that back and I just saw my face change’.
‘I just saw that hurt, years of going through therapy to try and be okay with who I am, come back,’ Calarco continued.
‘I think in that moment, me smashing the glass was like, I’m trying to deflect, and I’m trying to protect myself from being hurt.
‘I wish I’d never broken the glass. I never, you know, that’s never my intention. I never wanted to do that. It was it was really like I had reached my boiling point. And I think everyone does have their breaking point and that was mine,’ Domenica later said
