Kerri-Anne Kennerley’s surprise appearance on Studio 10 after axing
Kerri-Anne Kennerley made a surprise appearance on Studio 10 on Tuesday, two months after being axed from the morning show.
The TV personality’s shock exit was part of a major cull at Ten that also saw Natarsha Belling and Joe Hildebrand say goodbye to the program.
Two months after a tearful farewell, Kennerley was back this morning - bizarrely crashing an interview with fellow Aussie entertainment legend Rhonda Burchmore.
“Can I come out and see you rehearse sometime?” Harris asked Kennerley.
“Any time. I’d better go, because I’ll probably be shot at, too,” Kennerley quipped, to laughter from the hosts.
“We miss you, we love you KAK,” said Harris, who had one more question for Kennerley as she exited the set: “Did you get my text message on Saturday?”
“Sorry, I’ve been busy,” Kennerley joked as she mock-stormed from the set.
Kennerley exited Studio 10 in September after a controversial two years with the program.
She announced the news on-air in August, she said that across her decades of TV experience she’d learned that you “don’t have to be the most intelligent, you don’t have to be the strongest but you have to be, to survive, the most adaptable.”
She thanked the Studio 10 team for inviting her onto the show and for having been “so delightful, so charming and so generous.”
Pointing to the marching band-style jacket she’d worn to address her axing, Kennerley also snuck in a jab about her predicament:
“The reason I have got this outfit on today is because if you are being run out of town, get in front of the crowd and make it look like a parade,” she said, as her co-stars laughed.
“Companies do these sort of cuts to make the business better, which in the long run saves a lot more jobs,” she continued. “I am very, very sad because I will miss you guys and miss the audience, miss the feedback but that said, it is what it is. You just have to suck it up and move on.”
