It’s tough for a celebrity to come away from Hard Chat looking good. Lord knows why any of them would volunteer to cop Tom Gleeson’s mercilessly mocking questions as the nation watches on.
But at last, after two long years, one of them has done it; one of them has managed to crack the stony-faced comedian.
Sophie Monk. Yes, of Bardot/Kyle and Jackie O fame.
From the very beginning, the 37-year-old’s appearance on The Weekly‘s mock chat segment Wednesday night was a masterclass in self-deprecation.
“You’re an actor, singer, model, radio presenter, brand ambassador,” Gleeson began. “When you are at the airport, under immigration, do you write ‘trying to be famous?’”
“I actually have written ‘celebrity’ once,” Monk said. “But I just put ‘entertainer’, which usually [means] they think I’m a stripper.”
