To which Kyle replied: ‘I’m sick and tired of that dumb Judge Judy show I’m doing, I’m over it.’
Kerri-Anne then hastily replied: ‘I’ll tell you… that’s another show you took off me. I wanted to be Judge Judy.’
‘I didn’t want to do [Trial By Kyle]. I didn’t go to them with the idea, [Ten] came to me… They stole your idea and tried to rework me into it.’

The trio were discussing an idea that would see Kerri-Anne and Jackie O showcasing luxury celebrity Australian homes.
The Channel 10 star then suggested it would be a better idea if Kyle produced the show and she went out and did it.
She then jokingly added: ‘I’ll keep them busy in the living room and Jackie can go snoop what’s in bathroom cupboards and closets.’

She claimed that he ‘made a beeline’ for her in the studio and was ‘very sleazy’.
‘We’re not the only ones,’ Jackie laughed. ‘There’s quite a few of us out there that don’t want to interview him.’
