Fallen stars to host Dis­grace!

The Sunday Times - - Confidential - See STM for the in­ter­view with Dast­yari

EIGHT years af­ter call­ing South Africa’s Spring­boks “fag­gots”, for­mer Olympic swim­mer Stephanie Rice has landed a TV gig thanks to the ho­mo­pho­bic slur.

Rice, 30, pic­tured, teams up with shamed La­bor politi­cian Sam Dast­yari to host Chan­nel 10’s new Dis­grace!. Rice’s ca­reer spi­ralled af­ter the Twit­ter post, which she wiped, and apol­o­gised.

Dast­yari, too, had a spec­tac­u­lar fall from grace af­ter be­ing em­broiled in a Chi­nese busi­ness do­na­tions scan­dal that led to his Se­nate res­ig­na­tion. “Dis­grace! ex­plores ev­ery­one’s great­est fear: to be pub­licly shamed,” a pro­gram out­line reads.
