Polly Gillespie apologises for being 'evasive' in her latest post

Polly Gillespie says she feels like she is in her own episode of "American Horror Story meets Erin Brockovich".

Polly Gillespie says she currently feels like she is in her own episode of "American Horror Story meets Erin Brockovich".

The veteran broadcaster has been off air from her The Hits radio show for over a week since posting an emotional video to her social media followers,in which she discussed the future of her show.

In the clip, Gillespie hinted she and her co-host and ex-husband Grant Kereama might walk away from their long-time radio show over new demands from the station.

In her latest post, Gillespie thanked her followers for their messages and apologised for seeming "evasive".

"So to answer the three main questions: 'I'm not sure', 'I don't know', and 'I'm pretty sure it will have a happy ending!!!'," she said.


Gillespie and Kereama have worked alongside each other since 1991 and continued their show together even after their marriage ended in 2015.

"Anyway my darling daughter thinks it's hilarious and feels like she's watching her own series of Keeping up with the Kardashians mixed with Suits.

"I feel like I'm in my own episode of American Horror Story meets Erin Brockovich". 

Gillespie went on to say that she and Kereama were still a "very tight team", spoke every day, and that one day she may be able to tell the whole "fascinating" story.

Gillespie concluded the post by saying there were far worse things happening in the world, including the Port Hills fires, suicide, and unaffordable rent prices.

"That's the important stuff. That's real life. Sending every ounce of strength out to anyone who has lost someone in tragic circumstances this week, and those worried for their jobs, families, future. Kia kaha. xxxxxxxxx."

Gillespie and Kereama have worked alongside each other since 1991 and continued their show together even after their marriage ended in 2015.

In December, NZME revealed they had cut the pair from the Auckland broadcast area to be replaced by TVNZ personalities Sam Wallace and Toni Street.

Gillespie said she felt sad and hurt by the way her employers had treated her, and that she only found out their show had been dropped in Auckland through media reports.

"Well I have no plans to go anywhere else, but I'm fairly sure I won't be re-signing with current employers," she said in an interview last week. "The lack of transparency for months makes me feel sad, hurt, surprised and disrespected."

Todd Campbell, content director with The Hits, has said the company do not discuss contracts or negotiations publicly and wouldn't be commenting on the matter.
