‘It used to affect me a lot more,’ Tegan said, in reference to how the public scrutiny had affected her self-esteem.

‘I used to call (her) and be like, “I’m a mess,” but nowadays she knows that there’s no point even bringing up anything negative with me, because it just doesn’t affect me.

‘I don’t care what anybody else outside my small group think of me,’ continued the former Miss Universe Australia.
