Amber Sherlock, an Australian journalist and host of Nine News Now, shocked audiences all over the world when an off-air outburst got leaked to the public. Prior to a TV appearance with Julie Snook and Sandy Rea, the three ladies appeared on video footage and all three of them were wearing white.
“I need Julie to put a jacket on because we’re all in white. I asked her before we came on,” Amber says when the three ladies appear on screen. Amber looks annoyed as she pulls out her cell phone to call wardrobe. “I haven’t had time,” Julie says.
“Well I’ll call wardrobe and get something,” Amber responds. The off air fight is pretty awkward and uncomfortable to watch. “I made this clear two and a half hours ago,” she continues.
“Amber if it’s an issue I can get on out of here,” Julie responds. Amber remarks that it is an issue, and at this point even Sandy Rea looks uncomfortable. “Amber please, this is not the only thing I’m doing today,” Julie says in her defense. It looks like the two had talked earlier in the day and Amber had told her to put a jacket on. Julie admits that she genuinely forgot.
Julie actually maintains her composure as Amber berates her. “I asked you two and a half hours ago, it’s not the hardest request,” Amber continues. She finally asks someone in the crew to go and grab Julie a jacket. Someone grabs Julie a black jacket and she puts it on.
The next clip shows the actual segment of the show, with Amber smiling and warmly introducing the guests.
Julie responded to the leaked footage by making light of the situation: “Amber and I are good friends and I really enjoy working with her. News is a fast moving environment and sometimes these things happen.”
