Chats with Healy-rae too juicy for Lucy Scenes cut from hit TV3 show

Irish Sunday Mirror - - NEWS -

Mother of three Lucy Kennedy think Michael Healy-rae is a bet­ter show if I’m hon­est. “I think it’s a true de­pic­tion of Liv­ing With Lucy. “It’s funny and warm.” Mr Healy-rae is a mem­ber of one of Ire­land’s most suc­cess­ful po­lit­i­cal fam­i­lies. His brother Danny is also a TD and his late fa­ther Jackie was a ti­tanic fig­ure in South Kerry and held no small amount of sway in the Dail.

The 50-year-old is openly op­posed to same-sex mar­riage and the 8th Amend­ment Ref­er­en­dum.

Asked whether she pressed the Ker­ry­man on his opin­ions, Lucy said: “We talked about his thoughts on gay mar­riage. We did dis­cuss a lot of things but legally it just didn’t make the cut.

“Peo­ple have to re­mem­ber that as close to real­ity as Liv­ing With Lucy is, it is a tele­vi­sion pro­gramme so stuff has to be taken out.

“I loved him. I had bad hay fever and they have a cat so I walked around his house with shades on.” Busy Lucy is also gear­ing up to host the de­but series of TV3’S new tal­ent con­test.

She said: “Ire­land’s Got Tal­ent is right up my street. I re­ally think it’s go­ing to be huge.

“There’s been loads of ma­gi­cians, the weirder and the wack­ier the bet­ter.”
