Kyle and Jackie banned from red carpet

Kyle and Jackie O have revealed why they were banned from the Golden Globes red carpet for five years.

The KIIS FM hosts explained on air this morning that several years ago they were in LA for the awards show and had accreditation to stand on the red carpet in the media section to interview stars on their way into the ceremony.

"We went up to an old lady and said, 'Excuse me, we're not sure where to go,'" Kyle said. "We were supposed to go to the media pit, but we looked that good that day that the lady goes, 'Oh, come with me.'

"She rushed us through a door and pushed us out and all of a sudden we're there next to Mary Hart of Entertainment Tonight. We were on the red carpet!"

Kyle continued: "Jackie looked at me and I said, 'Just run with it.' It was hard though because we had about 300 metres of microphone cable and a microphone each."

It didn't take long for someone to realise Kyle and Jackie O were media and did not belong on the actual red carpet.

As Jackie recalled, a female Golden Globes official approached them and yelled at them on the carpet.

"Jesus, we got berated. I've never felt so small in all my life," Jackie said.

After the telling off, Kyle and Jackie O thought they'd be sent back to the media pit where they were supposed to be initially, but the Globes official sent them somewhere else.

"She pushed us to the end where the photographers were," Jackie said. "We were in the photographers pit. No one is actually going to go up and talk to a photographer, are they, so we didn't get one damn person."

 

As a result of the mix up, Kyle said he and his radio offsider were banned from attending the Globes for the next five years.

"Oh well, who cares," Jackie said.
