If you've been a longtime listener to either Jay-Jay Feeney or Polly Gillespie, you may have heard the stories of feuds and fighting between the two breakfast radio hosts.
Jay-Jay, who previously was on The Edge Breakfast show, and Polly Gillespie who was previously on ZM Breakfast, were said to have been bitter rivals who "hated" and "fought" with each other.
But you might be surprised to hear that wasn't the case.
Talking on sister station Today FM, Jay-Jay joined Polly Gillespie's Night show on International Women's Day this week to discuss the truth that, in reality, they admired and respected each other, and got along in person.
"It was always presented as Jay-Jay doesn't like Polly, Polly doesn't like Jay-Jay," Polly recounts.
"It's just silly rumours," Jay-Jay shares with Polly. "I really admired you. When I was doing my media studies course in New Plymouth, we had a trip to Wellington and you were on air with Grant... I was so buzzed out about meeting you."
"And it's weird to say that, but you've been quite an inspiration to me wanting to do [radio], because you're a strong woman and radio's been a male-dominated industry," Jay-Jay added.
Back then even, it's still mostly men. It was weird for a woman to be in control.
"And that's what I loved about you."
Polly points out that, while it was common to hear "bitchiness" created between the two women, the same was not said about their ex-husbands and former breakfast co-hosts.
"When you think about it, people didn't go 'Oh, Dominic Harvey doesn't like Grant Kereama, and Grant Kereama doesn't like Dominic Harvey.' There was never any of that."
"It's always women who get attacked or put in that basket of them being bitchy. It's far from the truth, we're not all like that," Jay-Jay responds.
"Women are very, very strong, and we're extremely capable. And we are the brains behind so much of the stuff men do in this world, but they're not giving us the credit! We have a long way to go before getting the credit."
