In demand Australian TV host Johanna Griggs has slammed Woman’s Day for a ‘fantasy’ news story she claims is ‘filled with errors’.
The magazine, whose parent company recently lost a legal battle against actress Rebel Wilson, has published a story regarding the health of Griggs’ husband, Todd Huggins.
“For the record: I didn’t have a 6th sense about anything… nor did I save my husbands life,” the House Rules host writes in her Instagram post.

“The doctors and medical staff who looked after him did.
“Todd wasn’t rushed off to hospital like you’ve made up in your fantasy world.”
Oh @womansdayaus Did you not learn anything from @rebelwilson smashing you in court?? Or even from me calling you out previously for taking a lot of poetic license with your articles. I see you’ve excelled with your creative writing yet again this week…. which as usual is filled with more errors than I thought could be possible. For the record: I didn’t have a 6th sense about anything… nor did I save my husbands life. The doctors and medical staff who looked after him did. Todd wasn’t rushed off to hospital like you’ve made up in your fantasy world. In fact we booked in to see specialists and doctors and in to the hospital like thousands of other families do every year. (Hence why I pulled out of the coverage of the Melbourne Cup Carnival in 2016) Jess and Joe are 21 and 20. And the pic you have used is so old that you still have Snowy in it (who died in September last year!) In fact pretty much the only thing that is accurate in your article is that Todd did have an operation and for the record he has been doing really well since. And as much as he giggled at your cover line of being called ‘The Bravest Man in the World’ even he thinks that’s a stretch. Seriously guys – give it a rest, and stop over dramatising things for us. We are just fine thanks! #fakenews #fantasy #makebelieve #notreality
Griggs goes on to poke holes in the story, including the incorrect age of her sons and the magazine’s use of a photo that is ‘so old’ it includes one of her dogs ‘who died in September last year’.

It comes less than a month after Griggs blasted the same publication for “writing bullocks” about her relationship with the judges on renovation show House Rules.
Hey @womansdayaus I see you are at it again, writing bollocks. For the record: I don’t feel stuck between the judges. I’m not worried about my career, and I’m really not feeling any angst at all about this year’s series. It takes a lot to make me snap… and possibly the closest I’ve ever got is the frustration I feel when I read such rubbish. This is just crap that you’ve made up to try and have a dig at #Houserules which FYI has just been renewed again for another season. Oh and that pic you have used is several years old! #fictionandmakebelieve #womansday #makinguprubbishforyears
