When Edwina met Costello Sr
WELL, that was awkward!
There are two people Sunrise presenter Edwina Bartholomew wouldn’t want to run into these days — and she was seated next to one of them on a flight from Sydney to Melbourne for Sunrise’s coverage of the AFL grand final.
Two weeks after the heavily pregnant presenter (right) took to Twitter to post an “errant tweet” about controversial Nine news journalist Seb Costello, Sunday Confidential can reveal she sat next to his father, former federal treasurer father Peter, on the flight.
Bartholomew is understood to have slept for the majority of the flight before sucking it up and introducing herself to the former politician, who just happens to be chairman of Channel 9.
We hear it was a cordial exchange. Oh, to have been a fly on the wall.
“Of all the flights going from Sydney to Melbourne on grand final weekend, can you believe it?” one industry source said.
