Footy Show haters are just a bump in my road

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - NEWS - AMELIA SAW FULL IN­TER­VIEW IN TO­DAY’S STEL­LAR

ERIN Molan has big­ger and bet­ter things on her mind than the haters who slammed her on so­cial me­dia over Chan­nel 9’s new-look Footy Show.

The reimag­ined Footy Show, which de­buted on Thurs­day night mi­nus its long­stand­ing host Paul “Fatty” Vautin, was slammed as a “train­wreck” and a “yawn-fest” with Molan as the host.

“I’ve dealt with other peo­ple’s opin­ions of me for over a decade now. Peo­ple seem to feel the need to judge me con­stantly. If I got up­set ev­ery time some­one said some­thing bad about me I couldn’t do this job,” said Molan.

Molan’s main pri­or­ity is mak­ing it through the next few months to de­liver a happy baby.

“As long as I’m healthy and baby is healthy I’ll han­dle any­thing else,” said Molan.

Nine has yet to find a ma­ter­nity leave re­place­ment for Molan but she isn’t plan­ning on tak­ing much time off.

And she’s ready to take any barbs in her stride.

“I’ve learnt at this stage of my life that what­ever works best for Sean (fi­ance Sean Ogilvy) and I, and this baby, and what’s best for us as a fam­ily unit is what we will do ... re­gard­less of any opin­ions,” she said.
