She attacked her co-host for wearing the same colour top as her in extraordinary leaked footage, which has since gone viral.
And Channel Nine newsreader Amber Sherlock has responded to THAT epic diva meltdown, blaming the pressures of live TV for demanding colleague Julie Snook change her similar white outfit.
“Live TV can be a pretty stressful beast, at times,” Amber said in a statement on Thursday night.
“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!!”
Before going live on Wednesday, Amber realized that herself, Julie and guest Sandy Rea, were all wearing white.
Amber then raged at Julie, demanding she put on a different colour jacket.
(If you haven’t already seen the footage, we strongly suggest you view it here IMMEDIATELY):
Speaking to her producer, the Amber said: “I need Julie to put a jacket on because we’re all in white. I asked her before we came on… Julie you need to put a jacket on.”
Julie tried to explain that she had run out of time to change, but Amber furiously replied: “Come on I told you two hours ago.”
Julie eventually found a jacket that was lying around the newsroom, and all three women were all smiles on-air.
Viewers have praised Julie for her ‘classy’ response, even calling for her to be given Amber’s job.
Julie is apparently not upset with Amber, with the statement insisting the pair have since moved on from the incident.
She said: “What can I say? Amber and I just really love white!
“Amber and I are good friends and I really enjoy working with her. News is a fast moving environment and sometimes these things happen.”
It is unknown who leaked the footage, which was published by Mumbrella.
