Last night Channel Nine ate its own young
. It was bloody, gruesome and totally disgusting; but what do you expect from an industry that knows no shame?
On A Current Affair
, Chk Chk Boom girl, Clare "the Bogan" Werbeloff was dissected on air by Ben McCormack. Funny, because for weeks now young Ben Fordham has been parading Clare Werbeloff around the station, much to the bemusement of older reporters who couldn't understand why Ben was taking sooo much trouble in pushing this naive girl ... makeup, hair, deportment and etiquette lessons from June Daly Watkins. WTF! There were even media reports that Clare would be given an ongoing on air role, reaching out and connecting with thousands of young bogans out there in ratings land no doubt.
Somehow it all went horribly pear-shaped for young Clare last night and she was hung out to dry. It started out with ACA
promos suggesting that the "Chk Chk Boom Girl will disappear for ever". Then it was Ben McCormack wielding the butcher's knife on air...
BEN: "Will anyone ever be able to believe anything you say?"
CLARE: "...I don't know."
BEN: "What have you learnt about telling lies?"
CLARE: "...(puzzled look) ... nothing."
Where was Fordham when she needed him?
