Erin Molan has revealed that she has a self-imposed alcohol ban but has had a couple of indiscretions, including a late-night phone call to Gladys Berejiklian.
Molan interviewed the NSW Premier on the Hughesy, Ed & Erin Breakfast Show on 2Day FM on Monday and confessed to Berejiklian.
The popular NRL host said she banned drinking in January but got out of hand during a girls night out with fellow Channel Nine presenters Belinda Russell and Lizzie Pearl.
“I actually stopped drinking for January, but I had a couple of indiscretions,” she said.
“It could have been 11pm, possibly midnight or 1am, I’m not entirely sure.
“We’ve talked and we clearly need to get lives, but we talked about how well you (Berejiklian) handled the pandemic and how we all look up to you.
“Then I said to the girls, Gladys and I are basically best friends. Should I give her a call and I’ll tell her how we’re all feeling.”
Unfortunately, the NSW Premier didn’t answer for Molan.
“So the prime minister hasn’t answered, nor has she returned my calls since,” Molan said jokingly.
“I just wanted to check the status of our friendship with Gladys.”
The New South Wales Prime Minister admitted that Molan’s call must have been an accident.
“Can I be honest, I had a missed call after midnight and you know what I was thinking, Erin? I thought you’d choose me in your pocket, ”she said.
“I thought I had your text returned Erin, if I hadn’t I apologize.
“In my head, I wasn’t worried.”
Berejiklian indicates the possibility of a vaccination certificate
Berejiklian had her hands full during the COVID-19 crisis and received high praise for how she ran the state.
On Monday the Prime Minister has the option of Except those who oppose the COVID-19 vaccine government-run buildings, as well as allowing private venues to take similar action.
“Airlines have already stated that if you are not vaccinated you cannot travel overseas and I think that will be an incentive for a lot of people,” she said.
“But we will also consider allowing venues … to make their own rules if they have a business or operate a workplace that they think is COVID-safe.”
The comments came after the state did not register any new locally acquired daily cases of coronavirus infection on Monday.
However, a decline to fewer than 9,000 tests in the 24 hours to 8 p.m. on Sunday was worrying as Ms. Berejiklian had previously indicated the possibility of easing restrictions.
