The tirade started after Skye shared a picture of her renovated bathroom, where a towel rack was seen next to a toilet.
Many comments debated whether the towel rack was too close to the toilet, and wondered whether ‘poo particles’ would contaminate the towels.
‘The towels are in the toilet, because there was nowhere else to put it… I don’t know why people need to be rude and nasty. It’s not your toilet or bathroom, so take a deep breath and move on,’ Skye shared on her renovation page’s Instagram Story.

‘I get that not everyone has the same taste, but when you’re doing it in a nasty way, it’s like “am I coming to your page, and judging your home?”‘ Skye said.
‘If my poo particles are travelling THAT far, then my lord they need to be in the Guinness World Records. The only way poo is going to get on my towels is if I stood on the toilet to do a s**t!’ she raged.
Raising her voice while filming in the echoing bathroom, she said: ‘Thanks for your concerns, but I will be the only one p**sing and s**tting on my toilet. So, thank you for the concerns, but we’re good here!

‘I’m sorry, I don’t want to be a b**ch’: Skye blamed her outrage on her pregnancy hormones, but insisted she was aware not all their renovations choices would be perfect or practical
‘There are going to be some things that are impractical and not perfect [with the renovations], but we’ve done the best that we can. Considering what this bathroom looked like before, this is the most beautiful, luxurious, comfortable bathroom for me.’
Skye, who is heavily pregnant, added: ‘I’m sorry, I don’t want to be a b***h… I’m just really hormonal at the moment, that’s my excuse.’

Skye said the pair ‘fell in love’ with the home when they bought it, even though it was so run down it looked ‘haunted’.
