Natalya from Below Deck reveals ‘open relationship’ conflict following Playboy strip

Reality star Natalya Scudder, who fans will know from Bravo’s Below Deck Mediterranean, has spoken out about her experience in a “open relationship” amid filming for season eight

Below Deck star Natalya Scudder has opened up about her experience filming the new season of Mediterranean and shared details about her “open relationship”.

The Australian star has been filming for season eight and confessed that throughout the series, she dealt with a relationship that was “very different to what she wanted”.

Scudder spoke ot Entertainment Tonight Online about her trials and tribulations while dealing with a partner who wanted to be “open” with other people.

She said: “I am dealing with something to do with, like, a guy that I am dating, and I am in this very different style of relationship that I don’t really want, but since it was the first person I have ever said ‘I love you’ to, I kind of was, like, convinced to go into this relationship, this open relationship.”

Scudder went on: “I didn’t actually want it, but since I loved him, I would rather have him than not have him. So, I face a lot of challenges and difficult phone calls, while also trying to figure out, like, what I want as well, and if I can actually do this.” Natalya explained that she was “just very confused” and “depended on Kyle throughout the season” to “help get her through”.

She confessed that the season “was a bit more difficult” than past series. Although Natalya had a boyfriend when the season ended, the Below Deck star has since split. The brunette boatie explained that they are “best friends” but she “can’t handle the style of relationship he wants”.

Scudder’s open and honest interview comes after the reality star recently shared some behind-the-scenes footage with her model pals on a Playboy pH๏τoshoot.

Natalya took to Instagram to share some snaps on her Story as she and her friends stripped off to pose on a luxury yacht. In one picture, Scudder and her friends kneeled on the front of the boat as they posed up a storm for the pH๏τographer.

The group all sported bright neon ʙικιɴιs, with Natalya front and centre in a lime green number.
