We caught up with Mattie Lynn Breaux EXCLUSIVELY about what it was like to hitch ‘Floribama Shore’ for season three. Plus, she opens up about Gus and Jeremiah’s wild combat and why she didn’t take sides.
Mattie Lynn Breaux has been spending time with the Floribama Shore forged throughout the present’s third season, which implies she’s had a entrance row seat to the drama between former mates, Gus Smyrnios and Jeremiah Buoni. Things exploded between the blokes — and even bought bodily — throughout a bunch dinner on the Jan. 2 episode. Afterward, Mattie discovered herself in a little bit of a troublesome place, since she got here into the home as Gus’s good friend, however started growing an in depth relationship with Jeremiah as soon as she arrived.
“It was very difficult [to see them fight],” Mattie informed HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “I didn’t know the full back story. When we were sitting at dinner, Gus was mouthing off, and I’m like…listen, unless you want to stay it to someone’s face, don’t say it. But [the fight] went down when I went to the bathroom. So I was just torn. I know what it’s like to go through something and be by myself [like Jeremiah was], and I don’t want anyone to feel that way. So, my goal was just to be there for Jeremiah, but not throw shade at Gus.”
Mattie, who beforehand starred on CMT’s Party Down South, began hanging out with the Floribama Shore crew after she visited St. Petersburg for the Pride parade. Gus, who met Mattie on The Challenge: War of the Worlds, invited her to crash at their home throughout her keep. “I remember driving in the car and waiting for them and my palms were sweating!” she admitted. “Did they think I was just a crazy girl from another reality show!? I was overthinking it. After I met them, they were all dressed up and colorful, and we had such an amazing time.”
At first, although, Mattie was admittedly anxious that the ladies on the present can be cliquey. “You have women in the real world who can be mean girls, and you have some who are more welcoming and open to new things and changes,” she defined. “Going in, I was only supposed to stay for the weekend. But we ended up hitting it off and when they asked me to stay, I just couldn’t pass up the opportunity! I love St. Pete beach and I love all the [castmates], so why not give it a try?!”
So far, Mattie has hit it off with the whole forged, however she promised that she received’t be afraid to talk her thoughts if she looks like she must. “I’m as real as it gets,” she mentioned. “If I see anything I don’t like, I’m not just going to push it to the side like it didn’t matter. I speak my truth. I believe in myself and how I feel. I may or may not say some things [as the show goes on]. You’ll have to stay tuned!” Floribama Shore airs on Thursdays at 8:00 p.m. on MTV.
