Every August, she baked me a chocolate birthday cake, and in December 2007, she made me another cake for my last day. in actuality, four cakes!
“A huge K-A-T-E, and I have pictures to prove it.” Carol, thank you for all of the aforementioned, for showing me that one way some of us express our love is via food, and for bringing so many of us together yesterday. It topped out my cup. Usually, it does.
It comes after radio star Tim Blackwell appeared to have confirmed rumours of a feud between him and former co-star Kate.
When asked on the Shock Jocks podcast about her departure from the drive time show, the 41-year-old made a snide remark that appeared to allude to a dispute with his former Nova FM co-host.
Tim said, “That’s a question for her, I know nothing,” in response to the issue of what caused Kate to leave.
I believe it ran its time and I believe she wanted a fresh opportunity, and [new presenter] Ricki-Lee Coulter was also present, he continued.
Tim continued to praise his new co-host, describing her as “the female version of him” and “powerful, vocal.”
She’s a little bit of a control freak, but she knows what she wants, and we adore her for that. She’s also extremely vocal, quite strong, and has her own opinions.
Earlier this year, Ricki-Lee took up Kate’s role on the programme, and the name of the show was changed to the Ricki-Lee, Tim & Joel Show.
After an extended absence and a stay in treatment for alcoholism, Kate had left the show.
Along with co-hosts Tim and Joel Creasey, Ricki-Lee expressed her happiness at taking over the segment.
