Those who weren’t familiar with Nadia Bartel sure are now!

Earlier this month, the WAG, who was married to Geelong Cats star Jimmy Bartel for five years, was plastered across headlines after she was caught breaking Victorian lockdown regulations to party with friends.

Making matters worse, a video showing the mother of two snorting white powder, believed to be cocaine, was leaked on social media and went viral.

The three-second video was posted by friend and business partner Ellie Pearson, who reportedly meant to send the damning clip to her sister, Bonnie Pearson, but accidentally shared it to both Facebook and Instagram.

Nadia, who appeared on Channel 7’s The Real Full Monty in 2019, quickly released a statement to apologise for the mishap.

 “Hi Everyone, I have let you all down by my actions,” she wrote in a statement posted to Instagram.

“I take full responsibility and I am committed to taking all necessary steps to ensure I make better choices in future.

“To my family and friends, my business partners and the public health workers trying to keep us all safe, I am embarrassed and remorseful.

“I am truly and deeply sorry. I hope I can earn your forgiveness and, in time, your trust. Nadia.”

Following the drama, several of her lucrative ambassadorships were dissolved following widespread public outrage.

However, a top TV casting director exclusively tells New Idea that all is not lost for Nadia!

“Drug scandals don’t always cancel careers,” assures the agent.

“It’s quite the opposite.”

The source reveals Nadia, 36, will likely be eyed off for a gig on The Real Housewives of Melbourne or SAS Australia in the coming months.

“As twisted as it sounds, she now has a scandal, which means she has a redemption story – it’s reality TV gold,” says the source, who believes agents will be moving fast to secure the stylish star.

Nadia has managed to amass more than 5000 additional followers since the incident broke.
