Jessica Rowe defended one of her “dearest friends,” Georgie Gardner, during a discussion on Studio 10 this morning, regarding the now infamous Uber conversation between Peter and Karl Stefanovic.
The exchange took place on loud speaker as Peter Stefanovic sat in the backseat of an Uber, and has since been relayed by the driver of the vehicle to New Idea magazine.
Karl Stefanovic expressed frustration towards his new Today co-host, Gardner, who he claimed does not hold strong enough opinions. He criticised her for “sitting on the fence,” and said if she wants to maintain her spot on the program, she will have to “step up”.
It has been rumoured for some time that Georgie Gardner and Karl Stefanovic are not ‘friends’. We discuss on Mamamia Out Loud. Post continues below.
Rowe began by conceding the phone call should never have been recorded, however, “I don’t think these two [Karl and Peter Stefanovic] are victims”.
