Channel 9 news presenters Amber Sherlock and Julie Snook have spoken out after footage of an incredibly awkward clothes-related argument leaked online today.
The viral clip showed Amber, Julie and psychologist Sandy Rae appearing on the same TV show all wearing white. Amber immediately demanded that Julie put on a jacket, leading to a very uncomfortable altercation over clothes. You can watch the video here.
Amber has now admitted that she "probably overreacted" about the situation.
"Live TV can be a pretty stressful beast, at times," Amber said in a statement to 9Honey. "And as anyone knows, it’s never much fun rocking up to work or to a party in the same outfit as one of your colleagues or friends. I probably overreacted with the pressure of presenting a live news bulletin."
"Thank goodness we had psychologist Sandy Rae around afterwards!!”
Julie explained that the pair are actually very good friends.
"What can I say? Amber and I just really love white!" said Julie. "Amber and I are good friends and I really enjoy working with her, News is a fast moving environment and sometimes these things happen."
The footage did not go to air, and it is not known how it leaked online. It was originally published by Mumbrella.
