Killeen answers construction call
FORMER Big Brother host Gretel Killeen got a last minute call-up to MC the National Association of Women in Construction (NAWIC) awards last Thursday after Jamila Rizvi was unable to make it.
Killeen, from Sydney, opened the seventh annual awards by saying how much she loved Perth but didn’t understand our obsession with hugging or our patience at pedestrian crossings.
“Even the woman who picked me up in the hire car hugged me,” the mother-of-two said.
“You all wait for the pedestrian lights even when there’s no traffic.”
Killeen was last in Perth at Christmas when she drove from Perth to Broome with her daughter.
