A Channel Ten spokesperson confirmed to the Daily Mail that the pair had a ‘respectful’ discussion and have made amends.
During a taping of Studio 10, Kerri-Anne Kennerley made an off-the-tongue comment about her colleague, Antoinette’s clothing choice, asking if she’d ‘forgotten her pants’ – referencing Antoinette’s short white playsuit.
Antoinette laughed off the comment, but their co-hosts took the remark offensively. Angela Bishop was first to defend Antoinette responding, ‘she looks unbelievable!’
Kerri-Anne didn’t stop there and adding that Antoinette was ‘going to be thirsty’… a reference to an earlier discussion about the usage of the term “thirsty” in pop culture (thirsty, according to Urban Dictionary, means ‘horny’.
A spokesperson told news.com.au: ‘Kerri-Anne called Antoinette over the weekend and apologised for her comment’ to which Antoinette accepted her apology.
‘She reiterated her comment was not intended to cause offence. They had a respectful conversation and Antoinette accepted her apology’, the spokesperson revealed.
