Shaynna Blaze scolds radio hosts live on-air over Lord Sugar jab

Published

on

Shaynna Blaze shut down a popular radio trio during a tense interview on Tuesday.

Things became awkward off the jump when Shaynna called in to Adelaide’s Bec, Cosi & Lehmo for an interview and one of the hosts hadn’t bothered to even learn Celebrity Apprentice boss Lord Alan Sugar’s name.

‘You’re already fired from me, who are we talking to?’ a frustrated Shaynna said.

Cosi then purposely mispronounced Shaynna’s name as ‘Shauna’, before playing an audio clip of Lord Sugar saying that Shaynna ‘has a face like a slapped a**e’.

The Block judge, 58, quickly took the radio team to task for playing the ‘derogatory’ clip during a heated back and forth.

‘Can I just jump in there?’ she snapped. ‘By you replaying that all the time, it actually recycles that thing the whole time.’

She continued: ‘I think the thing is, it’s a comment that one, shouldn’t have been said, and you call it out, but I think replaying that again gives him more air.’

Shaynna then told the hosts to ‘stop replaying that’, which seemed to upset Cosi.

‘You could argue the same thing about shows like The Block where they take one piece of drama and replay it and replay it,’ he fired back.

Shaynna explained that it wasn’t the same thing, as Lord Sugar’s comment specifically attacked her appearance and wasn’t just manufactured reality show drama.

Fiery: ‘Can I just jump in there?’ Shaynna snapped at the trio. ‘By you replaying that all the time, it actually recycles that thing the whole time’

This isn’t the first time that the 58-year-old has hit back at Lord Sugar for his shocking comment about her looks.   

The phrase ‘face like a slapped a**e’ is British slang for when a person has a stern or unhappy expression and doesn’t necessarily suggest they are unattractive, but Shaynna took the remark as a criticism of her physical appearance.

Reacting to the insult on Nova FM’s Fitzy and Wippa on Monday, the Block judge rejected the excuse that it was just UK slang that got lost in translation.

‘Yeah I think you can give an excuse if that’s a British term, [but] if you’re coming to another country you need to read the room of the country,’ Shaynna said.

‘I’m grateful to come here today to talk about this,’ she added.

‘He’s apologised but we need to talk about this in public about what actually happened. You can’t talk about people and their physical appearance in a derogatory way to get a cheap laugh. We’ve gone past that. The world isn’t like that anymore.’

The interior design expert also criticised radio hosts Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald and Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli for allowing Lord Sugar, 74, to make the remark unchallenged on their show last week.

‘[By] not calling [him] out publicly or straight away, you’re enabling that and meaning they feel they can get away with it,’ she said.

Wippa, who is also starring on Celebrity Apprentice, then apologised to Shaynna.

Laying down the law: Reacting to the insult on Nova FM’s Fitzy and Wippa on Monday, the Block judge, 58, rejected the excuse that it was just UK slang that got lost in translation 

‘It happened on our show and I almost led him [Lord Sugar] into it because I made the comment that Shaynna looked upset in the boardroom, so I felt a responsibility too,’ he said.

Lord Sugar made the ‘slapped a**e’ comment on Fitzy and Wippa last Monday after Wippa and co-host Sarah McGilvray noted how she rarely smiled on Celebrity Apprentice.

‘Oh, bloody hell. She’s got a face like a slapped a**e, doesn’t she most of the time?’ he said. ‘[She’s] Like a rabbit in the headlights.’

Stern: ‘You can’t talk about people and their physical appearance in a derogatory way to get a cheap laugh. We’ve gone past that. The world isn’t like that anymore,’ she said. Shaynna is pictured with co-stars Josh Gibson (left) and Camilla Franks (right)

Scherri-Lee Biggs is spotted on location presenting for Channel Nine in Perth

She may have been fired from The Celebrity Apprentice on Monday night.

But on Tuesday, presenter Scherri-Lee Biggs was back to business doing what she does best.

The glamorous 30-year-old was seen on location in Perth, as she presented the weather for the network.  

Back to business! On Tuesday, Scherri-Lee Biggs was spotted on location presenting for Channel Nine in Perth – after being booted off The Celebrity Apprentice on Monday

The blonde turned heads in a bright outfit, wearing a red blazer and matching camisole top. 

She teamed the look with black jeans and boots and wore her long locks out and over her shoulders in louse, tousled curls. 

Scherri-Lee appeared in high spirits, despite being fired from Billionaire business magnate Lord Alan Sugar on The Celebrity Apprentice on Monday’s episode. 

Camera ready: The blonde turned heads in a bright outfit, wearing a red blazer and matching camisole top

The beauty pageant queen, 30, was called out by the fearsome CEO in the boardroom for not doing ‘very much’ during the Koala Furniture group challenge.

Missing the brief in enticing as many passersby to experience the furniture firsthand in a shopping mall, Scherri-Lee threw project manager Ross Noble under the bus.

The challenge saw teams setting up a display in a shopping centre, and calling on shoppers to try out the bedding and sofas and discover more about the brand.

Each shopper was asked to fill out a paper leaf with their details, and the number of leaves collected would determine the winning team alongside any bonus points. 

Celebrity advisor Janine Allis informed Lord Sugar that she counted 40 people that Scherri-Lee allowed to walk past her without any interaction.

‘I wasn’t standing there looking at the ceiling, I was definitely working in our process,’ Scherri-Lee said in her defence, telling Janine directly that she ‘certainly wasn’t standing around’.

Stating that she had ‘expertise in management’, Scherri-Lee had no qualms in throwing Ross Noble under the bus who was project manager on the task. 

‘I actually wanted to stand up as project manager on this task and Ross wanted to go round two,’ she said.

‘At this point, I’m really wishing I did take that role. I’m sorry Ross. Maybe things would have been managed differently in that aspect. The process let me down,’ the model continued.

Meanwhile on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa on Tuesday,  Scherri-Lee revealed she recently caught her date in the arms of another man at a Celebrity Apprentice after-party.

Say what?! Meanwhile on Nova’s Fitzy and Wippa on Tuesday, Scherri-Lee revealed she recently caught her date in the arms of another man at a Celebrity Apprentice after-party

Making things even more outrageous is the fact the mystery man in question was somebody ‘with a profile’ in the entertainment industry.

She said it all went down at a party held at Camilla Franks’ house while filming the show.

‘He didn’t leave me at the party, he hooked up with someone else at the party,’ she said.

While she pretended not to know who her date had left her for, radio host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli, who was also at the party, spilled the beans.  

‘The twist is it was another bloke!’ he exclaimed, leaving his co-host Ryan ‘Fitzy’ Fitzgerald howling in shock.

‘Scherri-Lee, did he leave you on the date and hook up with another guy?’ Fitzy asked.

‘He did, yes,’ she admitted sheepishly, before later adding: ‘He left pretty soon after.’ 

The beauty queen said she had no idea her date was attracted to men, but acknowledged he was a ‘nice bloke’.

‘I just remembered who it was too,’ Wippa chimed in, seemingly referring to the mystery man Scherri-Lee’s date hooked up with.

‘I do know who it was but I’m not going to say because he’s got a profile… they’re in the entertainment [industry].’

Michael Clarke flashes a knowing smile amid Kyly rumours

Published

He recently denied speculation he has rekindled his relationship with his estranged wife Kyly. 

But the 40-year-old cricketer flashed a knowing smile on Monday when he was spotted leaving the gym in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. 

Michael, who recently split with ex-girlfriend Pip Edwards, certainly looked to be in high spirits after the workout. 

You seem chipper! Cricketer Michael Clarke, 40, (pictured) flashed a knowing smile after denying rumours he’s back together with estranged ex-wife Kyly Clarke last week 

He beamed as he gave the thumbs-up while leaving the venue.

Michael flaunted his fit frame in all-black workout gear, along with a pair of white sneakers and a backpack over his shoulders.      

Something to smile about? Michael flaunted his fit frame in all-black workout gear, along with a pair of white sneakers and a backpack over his shoulders

The former Australian cricket captain, 40, shut down speculation he was back with Kyly during an interview on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Friday.

He said the exes’ seemingly romantic getaway in Palm Beach last weekend was actually just a family trip, and his sister and brother-in-law were also present.

‘Kyly and I have said it from day one, we have such a great friendship, and the fact we can do that for our daughter,’ Michael said. 

Setting the record straight: Michael downplayed rumours he’s back together with ex-wife Kyly last week, saying the pair are just friendly co-parents and not a couple. Pictured in 2018

‘I don’t think there’d be an ex-husband and wife that aren’t together that wouldn’t do that for their child.’

He continued: ‘Kyly’s such a natural parent. She’s an amazing mum. For me, I’m learning [fatherhood] as I go.’

‘I’ve got 50 per cent custody of my daughter so I love seeing her [and] Kyly and I speak almost every day because I’m asking her for advice.’ 

Not what it seems: Speaking on The Kyle and Jackie O Show on Friday, Michael said the pair’s seemingly romantic getaway in Palm Beach last weekend was just a family trip, and his sister and brother-in-law were also present. Pictured: Kyly Clarke 

Michael then claimed Daily Mail Australia ‘forgot to ask Kyly or myself’ if they were back together. This isn’t true.

We emailed Ms Clarke’s manager Corey Cooper for comment at 11:30am on Monday, an hour before publishing the photos, and didn’t receive a response.  

Kyly also denied rumours she’s back together with her ex-husband Michael, during an interview with The Morning Show on Monday. 

Family: Kyly and Michael share daughter Kelsey Lee. The couple were married for seven years before splitting in February last year

The mother-of-one clarified they haven’t reconciled, but emphasised how committed they are to co-parenting their five-year-old daughter, Kelsey Lee. 

Channel Seven host Kylie Gillies asked: ‘Do these reunion headlines just make your eyes roll, or is there something we need to know?’ 

Ex-girlfriend Pip Edwards seemingly confirmed the relationship at Fashion Week saying she ‘wishes them well’ after being asked about a reconciliation.  

Best wishes: Michael’s comments comes after his ex-girlfriend Pip Edwards seemingly confirmed the Clarkes were back together at Australian Fashion Week on Wednesday

Margot Robbie and her husband Tom Ackerley are pressing ahead with the construction of their new dream home in Los Angeles, despite being warned to ‘get out’ as the neighbourhood suffers a wave of crime and homelessness.  

The Australian actress, 30, and her British filmmaker husband, 31, splashed $6.5million on two adjacent plots of land near Abbot Kinney Boulevard in the once-elite beachside Venice neighbourhood in 2019. 

And while members of the community have recently warned the couple to abandon their building plans, construction continued as usual on Monday as bulldozers plugged away at the site.

High-vis clad workers could be seen digging holes in the dirt, while other builders continued boarding up the skeleton of a half-built home. 

According to building plans, Margot and Tom intend to build a two-storey family dwelling with an attached garage. 

It comes after insiders told Woman’s Day magazine on Monday that Margot and Tom are making a grave mistake by continuing construction.

Venice has seen a vast increase in homelessness and crime since the COVID-19 pandemic gripped Los Angeles, with hundreds of tents now lining the beach’s famous boardwalk. 

‘It’s a completely different neighbourhood from when Margot and Tom bought it – the crime rate’s gone up 177 per cent since lockdown,’ an insider told Woman’s Day magazine.  

A former taxi driver who is now homeless also told told the publication that Margot and Tom are asking for trouble by continuing their building project.

‘I know people here who will target Margot’s house for burglary because they know she’s got money,’ they warned. 

‘She’d be better off if she just abandoned it. I don’t know why anyone would want to spend millions of dollars to buy a house next to all this.’   

The couple are already trying to offload one of their LA properties, having listed their smaller home in Hancock Park for $4.5million late last month.

Margot purchased the two-story residence in 2017 for $.3.5million shortly after her marriage to British filmmaker Tom. 

Margot and Tom’s neighbour in Venice, Crocodile Dundee star Paul Hogan, 81, meanwhile recently told fans he was ‘desperate’ to leave crime-stricken Venice and return to Australia.   

Paul, who moved to the US in 2005 after growing up in Sydney’s western suburbs,  is currently holed up inside his ‘fortress-like’ $4.5million mansion with his son Chance, 23.

When asked how he was coping with Los Angeles’ recent crime wave, Hogan simply said he ‘doesn’t go anywhere’.

‘[I’m] bored in lockdown, and the minute I can get on the plane without being locked in a hotel for two weeks, I’m back,’ he said.

Terrifying situation: It comes as residents of Venice say soaring crime rates and the exploding homeless population have made life in the elite beachside community unbearable

The movie star went on to explain he ‘wouldn’t survive’ Australia’s mandatory 14-day hotel quarantine.

‘My son [Chance] would have to be with me… we’d strangle each other,’ he said.

Fights occur several times a day, while shootings and stabbings are common, say residents of Venice Beach, who are fearful of increased crime rates since the homeless encampments became permanent

Venice Neighbourhood Council member Soledad Ursua said the homeless encampments had exploded during the COVID-19 lockdowns. 

She said residents were afraid to be out after dark, and there were fights several times a day and shootings and stabbings on a weekly basis. 

‘It’s just a very dangerous time to be a Venice resident right now,’ she said.  

‘Venice’s world famous beach and boardwalk are crippled,’ a letter to city and county officials from residents says 

According to figures from the Los Angeles Police Department provided to the Venice Neighbourhood Council, the violent robberies in the neighbourhood are up 177 per cent from last year.

The same period has also seen a 162 per cent increase in cases of assault with a deadly weapon involving a homeless person.   

Meanwhile, hundreds of residents have put their signatures to a letter pleading for help from city and county officials.

‘Venice’s world famous beach and boardwalk are crippled,’ it says.

‘Local children are refusing to come to the beach because they’re frightened by what they’ve witnessed. Seniors who live on or near the boardwalk are terrified of walking in their own neighbourhoods.’
