Radio host Jackie ‘O’ Henderson was moved to tears on The Kyle and Jackie O Show after an on-air joke that failed spectacularly.
The 46-year-old had made headlines Monday after shelling the so-called “scumbags” in her neighborhood that had dumped their trash in her bins.
But an apologetic Jackie said on Wednesday she made a mistake after looking in her trash cans and realizing that the trash was actually a pile of her own unwanted newspapers that she’d left on the lawn.

“A nice neighbor has thought, ‘I’ll clean up Jackie’s mess and put it in her bin,'” she added.
Jackie, who lives in an $11 million mansion in Woollahra, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, was then left mortified after her co-host Kyle Sandilands told her he was on the phone with a woman who claimed to be Jackie’s “angry neighbor.” to be.
In reality, it was a KIIS FM employee posing as her neighbor as part of the show’s long-running “Only Lying” prank segment.
Jackie collapsed and cried after being tricked into thinking all her neighbors hated her
“I’m one of the neighbors at the end of the cul-de-sac and I just wanted to call and thank Jackie for the blast on the radio. I’m really bummed that you’re blaming us,’ the woman raged.
The shocked mother of one insisted she never specifically blamed her neighbors for the trash can incident.
‘Oh, that’s not me! New! It was not me!’ Jackie stammered and added, “I didn’t even blame you… I never said ‘you’. I said “someone”!’

But the woman wasn’t satisfied with Jackie’s explanation.
‘I think it was insinuated, that’ [it was neighbours]. And we live on a pretty nice street,” she snapped, to which Jackie replied, “Yeah, 100 percent! I love all my neighbors.’
Tension mounted as the woman continued to lash out at Jackie while refusing to accept her repeated apologies.

“There are some crazy people on the street, Jackie,” she warned.

“Jackie is crying… I thought this would be hilarious, and it backfires. I’m sorry, Jackie!’ he said.
“I thought the whole street hated me!” Jackie cried. “I want my neighbors to like me, not hate me!”
The botched prank came two days after Jackie ranted about “scumbags” throwing their trash into her bins, saying the act was “the lowest of the low.”

She whined, “Some asshole dumped all their trash in my bins. What ap***k. That’s the lowest of the low, you bastard.’
“Battle in the Eastern Suburbs!” Kyle laughed, prompting Jackie, who lives with her 10-year-old daughter Kitty, to explain why she was so annoyed.
‘We only get small bins, so every space counts. Small bins,’ she said.
