Perhaps the only thing more counterfeit than Australian Idol co-host/FM radio jock Kyle Sandilands' carotene tan is the myth of his significance. Today, his value is again over-estimated thanks to an ongoing stoush with News Corp. The Daily Telegraph's Sydney Confidential reports that Vile Kyle came over a greenish hue of livid during a taping of Enough Rope.

The way they report it, Byle morphed into a six headed sea monster that sucked all conversational volleys into his reeking whirlpool mouth and then picked his teeth with quivering host Andrew Denton. The way an observer at Enough Rope describes it is rather less vivid.
