7 mins read


The Veronicas’ Lisa and Jessica Origliasso have addressed two of their famous feuds during their Godzilla V Human tour.

The pint-sized pop stars took to the stage in Brisbane on Saturday night and dedicated their 2007 song Revenge Is Sweeter (Than You Ever Were) to Celebrity Apprentice Australia.

They also used the occasion to take a dig at their former nemesis, Qantas.

The Untouched hitmakers, 36, who have recently griped about their treatment on the Channel 9 reality TV series, again raised the issue while on stage.

Lisa told the crowd, ‘I would probably try and dedicate it to Qantas Airlines and talk some s**t on that but guess what? We have a new enemy.’

‘So this one goes out to Celebrity Apprentice,’ she concluded, to cheers from the audience, according to the Herald Sun.

In 2019, the pop duo were escorted off a Sydney to Brisbane flight after Qantas claimed they ‘were disruptive and refused to follow crew instructions.’ 

The identical twin sisters countered that they were unable to adjust their bags in an overhead locker and asked for help from Qantas staff.

However they claim they were told cabin crew weren’t allowed to touch customers’ bags and so were assisted by a fellow passenger instead.

At the time, Jess and Lisa tweeted that ‘the police were called because we asked for the Crew’s names, and instead of giving them to us, they told us they were calling “security”. We had no idea what was going on.’ 

They were subsequently reinstated on a later flight.

Meanwhile, the sisters have repeatedly criticised Channel Nine over their ‘unfair’ portrayal on Celebrity Apprentice.

But it appears viewers may not have seen half of their bickering and arguments on set, with an insider claiming one explosive row was left on the cutting room floor.

‘Lisa and Jess were not exactly the easiest contestants and left the network struggling to show them in a favourable light,’ the source told New Idea.

For their part, the 36-year-old pop twins accuse Nine of ‘manipulating’ them into joining the show under the guise of ‘charity’, before stitching them up with a ‘bad edit’ to generate drama. 

However, an alleged on-set source said their portrayal was actually quite fair and that their biggest spats were ‘omitted in order to salvage their image’.

‘We mainly censored The Veronicas’ worst blow-ups and, believe me, there were more than just a few catty quips between them – certain things never made it to air,’ the insider claimed.

The source went on to allege that Nine threatened to dump the sisters’ 60 Minutes interview unless they agreed to take down their social media attacks on the show.

Meanwhile, fellow Celebrity Apprentice star and radio host Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli told Who magazine he knew Lisa and Jessica’s clash with fashion designer Camilla Franks was going to make it on to the show – much to the twins’ disappointment.

‘I knew they’d put The Veronicas in there cracking the poos about the electrician, and that was a hard juggle when it happened,’ he said, referring to scenes that aired last week.

‘These moments are heated and they’re passionate – we’re representing charities so it makes sense that things are going to come with emotion,’ he added.

After their altercation with the ‘Kaftan Queen’, Camilla told her teammates: ‘I’m really annoyed that they questioned my integrity.’

Jessica and Lisa spoke out on Twitter immediately after the episode went to air, lashing out at the show for depicting them as ‘entitled brats’.

They wrote: ‘The fact you edited out all the facts, so we become entitled brats – expecting favours and using our mum’s condition for benefit is truly the lowest you could have gone. I hope you pay your editors well for the souls they sell.

‘The fact they have edited this to seem like emotional manipulation and blackmailing people for sympathy is awful. Being gaslit on an edit over something so close to our hearts is beyond comprehension.

‘We are grateful there was money made for all the charities involved.’

Daily Mail Australia has contacted The Veronicas for comment
