“I think if you’re vulnerable too, people go, I don’t think it’s good for you.”

Mel said the rule for the other women was ‘she’s fine, she can have a boyfriend, she can handle having a boyfriend, she’s strong enough, but not you’.

“You’re going to ask yourself if you’re already vulnerable,” Mel added.
