"her TVNZ contract.. bans her from speaking publicly"I wished it banned her while speaking on-screen. I've never trusted her 'objectivity' since Undie-gate. She was overwrought when SFO announced that although Tuku was dodgy & sleazy, he wasn't criminal. All the TVNZ yapping-heads were crushed. All that time, money, effort & hype about a scandal that wasn't all that in the end.
Fast forward a few years and the upshot is that now, her smaller income means things might start getting louder domestically.
Hints for her kids. When mum starts shouting, remember:
- it's not usually serious until she starts swearing
- it's not that serious until she grabs something to whack you with
- depending on age, you're probably fitter, faster, nimbler, and can out run her
- lucky it's not the old man
- if you manage to record it, some sleazy media outlet'll probably pay you for it. Good luck!
