Ugh. Women. Am I right?
Queens of Tall Poppy Syndrome, forever trying to bring each other down and just desperate to make sure the ladder is pulled from the ones coming behind them.
Perhaps it’s their periods? Throwing their rationale off centre a little?
If you haven’t heard, Lisa Wilkinson and Jesinta Franklin are locked in a very fierce, very public battle. That’s women for you! Having little “digs” at each other! Being all cute and passive-aggressive!
Here is a sample of some of the headlines that surfaced on Friday morning after Franklin was interviewed on the Today Show on Thursday. Because there’s nothing like going through the archives and day-old news to concoct your feuds.

So what actually happened?
After Franklin told the hosts she’d been working 14 hours days for a week, Wilksonson asked: “What are you doing for 14 hours, because you’re just kind of wearing clothes and walking, right?”
To which Franklin replied: “That is the perception for a lot of models that you put on an outfit and sashay down the runway. Yesterday I had about 20 media interviews back-to-back, I had hair and make-up, I had briefings and I had rehearsals.”
