Josh's mum continues to claim that Cathy was planted on the show, posting a rant to her Facebook page last week. Replying to Josh's post in which he claimed the producers intentionally pieced together multiple scenes to make his family look nasty, his mum wrote: "Actress from hell."
Another family member then weighed in on the rant, writing: "We did well to keep our gobs shut until now! Cathy is playing a victim! The tears, definitely trying to get on Home and Away. She's playing her role well, sort of."
"She was a paid actress hunny, employed by producers," Josh's mum added.
After that online rant gained attention, Cathy was understandably hurt.
"Where's my paycheck then?" she said on Nova 100’s Chrissie, Sam & Browny when asked whether she really is an "actress from hell". "How can you say that? It's not a good look and it really just confirms that how she was in person is the same as she is online."
"If you can bully me in person and make me feel very intimidated and threatened by you when you're sitting right in front of me... She's only confirming that she's really like that by being so callous and rude online. You're not doing yourself any favours."
