Samantha Armytage has hit out at Woman’s Day after a story, “Samantha Armytage officially meets her new boyfriend’s daughters.”
The magazine included paparazzi photos of a private lunch with unnamed sources weighing in.
The clearly unimpressed Sunrise host tweeted, “There’s a special place in hell for the people who work @WomansDayAus ?” and took to Instagram, adding Daily Mail into the mix.
She added, “Not looking for sympathy here, just setting the record straight.”
Armytage, like a number of other morning TV presenters, is frequently in the crosshairs of magazine gossip and has previously hit back at headlines before at Woman’s Day, Daily Mail and News Corp (there’s no word of New Idea published by Seven West Media’s Pacific Mags). In 2016 she was issued an apology by Daily Mail.
In 2014 she told TV Tonight, “Sometimes it puzzles me how certain things turn up as stories.
“But it’s a 24 hour media isn’t it? They’ve got to come up with stuff all the time.
“My life has become ‘turned over’ shall we say… interesting…”
“With the job I do I’m a pretty open book. There’s a lot of stuff I share. But in my private life you don’t want to share everything.”
Meanwhile a deleted tweet from Sunrise presenter Edwina Bartholomew has been making its own news today.
