This morning, Larry went all 730 Report on Louise Pillage and she was forced to defend against claims that she “stole” now ex-fiancé Blake Garvey from romantic rival Sam Frost (But everyone knows it was a competition, right?).
That’s right, the downfall of ‘Blouise’ keeps on giving. (In case you’ve been living under a rock, the pair announced the end of their 18-month relationship earlier this week with a casual break-up photo shoot and emotional interview in New Idea magazine – and a follow-up press tour, obviously.)
The newly single 28-year-old appeared on The Morning Show on Friday (sans-Blake) to talk about the split. But the topic of conversation quickly turned to the initial friction point of the couple’s relationship.
“I didn’t steal anything!” said a visibly distressed Pillidge to The Morning Show’s Larry Emdur, who has just commented on the ‘controversial’ nature of how her and Blake’s relationship began.
It appears the media flurry following the wake of the couple’s breakup has not been able to stir up enough empathy to distract from the controversy of how their relationship began.
Emdur didn’t shy away from the backlash to Louise’s relationship with Garvey, saying: “There was the headline that you stole your best friend’s fiancé.”

“I say no, he chose me,” said Louise, who was quick to stand up for herself, before adding: “I didn’t steal anything, no.”
But that wasn’t the end of it; with Morning Show host Angela Cox soon probing further.
“How how hard is it for you to have people who may or may not know the actual details of what went on, sort of painting you as the “other woman,” like “man stealer”…that’s got to be pretty tough,” Cox probingly probed.
Poor Louise went on to remark that it was a “hard lesson to learn”.
