MasterChef Australia: Chris Badenoch’s Woman Speaks Out
The third party in the Chris Badenoch MasterChef Australia saga has now spoken out.
One of his long term girlfriend’s Gemma Pritchard from Melbourne has spoken to New Idea about her time with the beer merchant.
The article in the Herald Sun said:
But Pritchard, 35, has told New Idea that she had been dating Badenoch for the past four years, only ending the relationship when it was revealed he had started a romance with fellow MasterChef contestant Julia Jenkins, 23.
She said Badenoch told her Irani was just an old flame-turned-housemate, and that he was not seeing her.
Irani and Badenoch broke up recently, but still share their Fitzroy apartment.
Pritchard has told the magazine she has also dumped the beer merchant after his love rat ways were exposed.
“I feel totally humiliated,” Pritchard, 35, has told New Idea. “It’s been a nightmare.
“I didn’t ask for any of this. I wasn’t the one signing up for a reality TV show.
“We’ve been together four years. I’ve met all his friends, he’s met mine. It’s no secret.
“We were very on-and-off and kept our own places, but our relationship was intimate. Chris assured me it was exclusive.”
She said she confronted Badenoch when rumours surfaced about a romance between himself and Jenkins.
“He denied it,” Pritchard said. “He said: `For God’s sake! Julia’s 23 with no breasts! You think I would be interested?”’
Pritchard said she was hurt that Badenoch had not acknowledged their relationship, but that she was moving on from the heartbreaker.
“Now he’s gone I can wear my heels again, and I’m still a better cook than him!” she said.
She has definitely given him the big fuck you. I wonder if there are anymore chapters going to emerge about Chris’s complex personal life?
