The Shire – Vernesa Knifed At A Shopping Centre

The Shire star Vernesa was knifed today at a shopping centre reports the Daily Telegraph.

It should be placed on the record that the Mayor of Sutherland Council was not involved in the fracas, nor was it a Network TEN publicist trying to whip up some publicity for the low rating show.

According to the Daily Telegraph this non-consensual knife action occurred because of a personal vendetta.

The article states:

ONE half of The Shire’s pneumatic double act, Vernesa has reportedly been injured in a suspected knife attack at a Rhodes shopping centre today.

The beautician from Lansvale, who appears in the Channel 10 reality series about Sutherland Shire locals, was believed to have been treated at a Rhodes medical centre, with police confirming the TV starlet sustained “cuts and bruises.”.

Witnesses claim the clash, outside the Oliver Brown cafe, erupted around 12noon between a “group of girls” with shouts of “she’s got a knife.”

A witness took to Facebook claiming Vernesa had sustained “knife wounds requiring stitches” however these reports have yet to be verified.

It is understood police attended the scene and her alleged attackers are former friends involved in a “personal vendetta” against the beauty therapist.

A Ten spokeswoman declined to comment.

Vernesa’s Shire cohort Sophie, who lives and works in the Rhodes area, is believed to have been with her friend.

The duo have been targeted on social media, with reports their private mobile phone numbers were made public by “an ex-girlfriend.”

 There were no camera crew to capture the incident, but let’s hope Vernesa is OK as she is one of the highlights of the show.
UPDATE: A Current Affair  has obtained exclusive video of a knife attack and bashing of  The Shire stars Vernesa and Sophie at a Sydney shopping centre. The footage will feature in a special report tonight on A Current Affair tonight at 6:30 on Nine.

The Shire on Wednesday nights on TEN at 8pm.

That’s tough. Hope she’s okay. A ‘personal vendetta’? Those girls should be arrested for carrying a weapon.

Ari – I am sure they will be arrested. Also shopping centres have CCTV footage everywhere.

How very fortunate that “someone” took that extensive video footage that ACA could then show…

Yes, Jason! They were described as stars ffs!

Unfortunately it doesn’t matter who you are or what reality tv show you are from, there will always be people hating you. Whether they take their hate online or out on the streets, people should really get a life!

Maybe this show should be taken off air immediately so as not to attract further unwelcome attention like this?

‘non-consensual knife action occurred because of a personal vendetta.’

There is consensual knife action? o.O I clearly live under a rock

JJ I was being obscure more to do that Vernesa has been under the knife previously but obviously consented to it… her implants!
