Whilst discussing the controversy around Eddie’s labelling of Sports Minister John Eren as a ‘Soccer loving Turkish born mussie’, Jessica said: “To me, Eddie McGuire has form and I can talk very much from personal experience.”
“The way he has allegedly used language against me in the past and the way he has used language to describe (AFL footballer) Adam Goodes (is) highly, highly inappropriate and then to try and explain it away as ‘oh that was a brain snap or a brain freeze’ — no that is not on.
“If he (McGuire) is not smart enough — and I don’t think he is — to moderate his language depending on the sort of forum he is in, he has to take the flak for it.
“I’m sorry. I don’t have a lot of good to say about that man because he made my life hell.”
Back in 2005, Jessica joined Channel Nine to co-host Today with Karl Stefanovic. However less than a year into the role, Eddie wanted to sack her, and allegedly said: “What are we gonna do about Jessica? When should we bone her? I reckon it should be next week.”
The Millionaire Hot Seat host has always denied using the term.
