Naomi rolls her eyes and groans at producers off camera in several clips, then makes a brutally honest comment about an overweight man’s appearance.

‘Boy, was it an arse. Jesus, it blocked out the sun it did,’ she says.

Another clip sees the outspoken journalist saying she thinks something is ‘complete bulls**t’, before she repeats the swear word several times in other bulletins.

‘Why do I want her to put me in my place?’ another added, while a third TikTok user said she was Australia’s answer to Ron Burgundy from Anchorman.

Naomi, who was once one of Australia’s most talked-about media figures, now lives a quiet live in Melbourne away from the celebrity spotlight.

She is now the director of her own media training company, Managing Your Message, and also produces corporate videos.

Naomi said in 2018 she was open to doing more work on television and radio.

‘I have been offered things over the years but nothing I was really interested in doing,’ she told the Daily Telegraph.

‘That’s not to say that something won’t come up in the future and I’d certainly be open to it.’
