Geoffrey and Brynne Edelsten Talk About Dancing With the Stars Controversy on Today Tonight

Geoffrey Edelsten Rushes to the Defence of Wife Brynne

Geoffrey Edelsten was sitting in the audience on Sunday night when his wife Brynne made her Dancing With the Stars debut — which means he was there to hear the judges’ not-so-nice comments about her dance performance and body. Viewers were quick to express their outrage on Twitter following comments such as, “[You] looked like a bedazzled sack of potatoes rolling down the floor,” from new judge Josh Horner, and then this quip from co-host Sonia Kruger in the green room: “I think it’s great that you get on so well with your dad.”

While Brynne had already addressed the controversy by calling into Sunrise yesterday morning, she made another appearance with Geoff on Today Tonight, where her husband didn’t hold back on what he thought of Josh: “That Joshua is inarticulate, crude, rude — thank God this’ll be his only year on there.” Geoff thinks Josh — who replaced Mark Wilson — is trying to take the place of nasty judge, saying, “It seemed to me that he [Josh] wanted to really be the Todd McKenney of this new series . . . I don’t think he’s the professional that Todd is.” As for comments made about Brynne’s physical appearance, Geoff thought they were uncalled for, but acknowledged, “You are a television station, you are a program that needs ratings, so if you can be controversial, I suppose it goes with the territory.” If anything, the outpour of support for Brynne has overwhelmed the socialite and could possibly see her taking out the competition: “I know that Australia’s been so supportive of me today. That’s what got me out of bed and into the dance studio . . . all the messages, they were so kind.”
