"I think we're all full at the inn at the moment," the Channel 10 journalist told TV Week. "He might have to take a number!"
This isn't the first time the former Today show host has taken a dig at Karl. In a recent interview with The Herald Sun, the mum-of-three revealed she doesn't work well alongside people with "big egos", assumedly talking about her former Nine Network co-star.
"I'm not great around big egos, that doesn't bring out the best in me," she remarked.
In recent weeks, Karl has opened up about his sensational departure from Channel Nine, revealing he was "struggling towards the end of last year".
Speaking at Channel Nine's Gold Logie recovery brunch, the former breakfast show co-host candidly revealed he was having a tough time when he was dumped from the program while on his honeymoon with his shoe-designer wife, Jasmine Yarbrough.
“It’s been about six months since I was on the telly, and I needed to have a rest. Towards the end of last year, I was cooked,” he began. “It had taken its toll, a lot of the attention — all the unwarranted attention I thought, and you can’t control any of that, I’m not going to complain too much about that, but what it meant was that in a work capacity I don’t believe for a second I was at my best. I think I was struggling towards the end of last year.”
While his sensational exit came as a shock to thousands of Australian viewers, the beloved Nine Network presenter said he knew the change was imminent, inevitable and necessary.
“So it wasn’t a great surprise to me — in fact, it was a relief in many ways — that I was taken off the Today show. Because I just wasn’t at my best and you can’t be doing that show unless you’re at the top of your game,” he said. “You’ve got to be sharp, you’ve got to be witty, you’ve got to be funny. You’ve got to see the angles, and to be honest, at the end of last year I wasn’t seeing much.”
