AUSTEREO’S nationally networked ‘personality’ Kyle Sandilands was taken off air yesterday after he called a gossip columnist, who is six-months pregnant, “fat”. In an unprovoked attack, Sandilands, of the Kyle and Jackie O Show, said the “chick that I hate at Sydney Confidential“, Fiona Connolly, is “fat” and a “liar”.

 One industry insider told Tattler that Sandilands ‘was a very lucky boy to get away with what he does’ and questioned why ‘Austereo persisted with his services with School Boy outbursts such as the one aimed at Fiona.’  RELATED ITEM AUSTRALIAN
