‘No thanks. I’m finished. No plan at all, âshe laughed, when asked if she would consider returning for a stint in the next season of Big Brother VIP.
Mary’s admission comes weeks after she revealed her Married At First Sight star daughter Martha was set to appear on the show with her.
“Martha got the offer,” she told Daily Mail Australia last month.
No thanks! Speaking to Daily Mail Australia, Mary said she was ‘done’ with reality TV and was happy to be living her life as an influencer, like her daughter Martha, directing videos of food.
âIt was supposed to be me, then her coming in as an intruder, but she was offered Celebrity Apprentice, which was a better decision I guess for her,â she added.
Mary said that while Martha was thrilled to have the opportunity to appear on Big Brother, she felt that Nine’s celebrity apprentice was “more in her back alley.”
âShe wanted to do something for a good cause,â she said of her daughter’s decision, referring to the way the Celebrity Apprentice contestants play for charity.

Mary explained that although she initially had doubts about appearing on the show, she never worried about viewers’ reactions.
âI always knew there could be negative reactions as Martha’s mother, but I didn’t really care what people thought,â she said defiantly.
‘At the end people
don’t really know you. Even with Martha, they are so many layers for her. She is very considerate and very generous … You just have to know her.
