During a discussion on Studio 10 about a same-sex kiss on Bachelor in Paradise Kerri-Anne Kennerley today labelled the show “moronic” and dared the network bosses to fire her.
“Have you ever had women kissing on your shows on Midday and Mornings?” Sarah Harris asked her today.
After a long pause, Kennerley replied “Seriously?”
“They put that stuff on because it’s titillating and it’ll rate and stupid people with half a brain like Paddy will make those remarks.
“Yes, he is reflecting what a whole bunch of blokes do, but it’s only there because people are going to go ‘ooh, aah’. It’s moronic.
“Sorry, we have got a lot of issues to discuss but trust me, this is not one. If people are excited by this, and that’s what they’re banking on in terms of the ratings, go and do it, fine. I have far more important things to think about and talk about.
“And it’s got nothing to do with the gay community. Nothing. I just think that’s titillating television that is moronic, but so is Bachelor in Paradise but that’s just me.
“I know it’s the network, sorry, so fire me now!”
