Cyrell Paule, 30, and Eden Dally, 26, had a heated confrontation with a cafe owner from Shoal Bay, NSW, following a violent brawl that occurred on Sunday.
The reality stars clashed with Pelican Cafe owner, Deborah Wilson, live on the Kyle and Jackie O show on Tuesday, as both sides tried to clear up what really happened when a fight broke out at the establishment.
On Sunday, a shocking video showed Cyrell being choked by a woman inside Pelican Cafe in what the Married at First Sight star claims was a ‘racially-motivated’ and unprovoked attack.

Cyrell and Eden initially claimed it was an employee of Pelican Cafe who assaulted Cyrell, however, Deborah has since confirmed that the woman is a regular customer and not a staff member.
‘It was a customer… I saw everything. My staff, which happened to be two of my daughters, were in the kitchen and we noticed [Cyrell and Eden] walking past and a customer went from my shop outside to take photos or video,’ Deborah said.
‘Cyrell was having a go at the customer for taking a photo or video as they were walking past… I don’t know what was said or happened outside.
‘They got in their car and drove past and did a U turn and came back into my shop and said ‘does this cafe have an issue with us?’ and I said ‘no’.’
Statement: Pelican Cafe owner, Deborah, posted this lengthy statement to Facebook on Monday
Investigation: Police are investigating an assault incident involving Cyrell, who was attacked at the Pelican Cafe (pictured) in Shoal Bay, NSW on Sunday
Moments later Cyrell and Eden responded to Deborah.
‘We were having lunch and then we were going back to Cyrell’s car and then this feral girl from across the street yelled ‘hey Cyrell you mutt’ and Cyrell said ‘what did you say?’ – and [the woman] said ‘you’re a mutt… perhaps I should use the word black monkey, maybe that suits her better?” Eden said.
‘We went in our car to drive off and as we’re driving past they’re standing there and pretending to throw objects at our car – so then we pulled over walked in the cafe.’

Deborah claims the incident, which is being investigated by police, has ‘ruined her business’.
‘I have to turn my phone off. I’ve been getting calls nonstop of comments of saying I’m racist and my staff are racist and they’ve ruined my business,’ Deborah said.
‘Not in any way did I hear any racist comment made inside my shop.’
Not an employee: Cyrell and Eden initially claimed it was an employee of Pelican Cafe who assaulted Cyrell, however, Deborah, has since confirmed that the woman is a regular customer and not a staff member
In a Facebook post on Monday, Deborah denied she is racist.
‘Hi everyone, I am the owner of Pelican Cafe takeaway. Myself and my staff who are my daughters witnessed an incident that occured [sic] in our shop. In no way were we involved, nor were there any racial comments made towards anyone,’ she wrote.
It comes after local police confirmed to Angle News Australia that an investigation is underway.
