Guests at WACA award night shocked by burlesque sponge bath

Photos have emerged of a burlesque dancer having a sponge bath in a huge martini glass at the Western Australian Cricket Association's premier awards night at Crown Perth last week.

Callers swamped Radio 6PR on Wednesday morning saying many of the 800-odd guests at the Laurie Sawle Medal last Friday were bowled over by a routine performed by a skimpy burlesque dancer at the swanky $250-a-head, black tie event.

Photos sent to Radio 6PR shows the soapy woman covered in suds in a huge martini glass - a trademark move of world-renowned burlesque artist Dita Von Teese, who is due to perform in Perth in June.

Another picture shows the dancer, from Sugar Blue Burlesque, in nothing more than a gold G-string.

One guest said award-goers were blindsided when the camera man panned in on the dance, with the vision then appearing on the event's big screen.

"Elderly men were covering their partners with their jackets," he said.

Another person who was at the awards night said many of the guests were "disgusted".

"It was really awkward," she said.

"People didn't know where to look."

Another said the lack of clothing was at odds with the notoriously rigid dress requirements associated with the WACA membership area.

Yeah it was a bit naughty Sven.

They're always a little close to the edge those two. Part of the Alternative Commentary Collective who commentated on the WC and a few of the ODI's.

Funny cunts on that, but not particularly good on their radio show.

How on earth did you find out about that anyway? It wasn't even big news here..

No idea, never heard of her.

Re: ICC World Twenty20 in India
I would have no interest in defending some idiot radio person who rings someone up and pretends to be someone else but the NZ dj's were taken off the air for lying.
Mrs Stokes rang up to discuss the sneering performance and was assured it was a private conversation.
And was lied to in an attempt to humiliate her.

I didn't know Mrs Stokes was a cricketer. She one of your indoor cricket girls?

Re: ICC World Twenty20 in India
Funny isn't it. Our DJ's take this piss out of someone and his mum calls up to complain, they get taken off the air and fly out to Las Vegas for a few days.

Australian DJ's take the piss out of someone and she kills herself a couple of days later.

I'm not sure who's counting, but that's probably a other win for NZ.

Re: ICC World Twenty20 in India
Yes, but as Jonah tells us NZ never expect to win a semi final so their performance was brilliant.

Brilliant in NZ = better than Australia

Re: ICC World Twenty20 in India
NZ graduates from the Marlon Samuels School of Charm .....

TWO New Zealand radio hosts have been reprimanded after broadcasting a conversation with the mother of cricketer Ben Stokes despite assuring her it was off air.

Hosts Matt Heath and Jeremy Wells poked fun at the World T20 Final villain on Radio Hauraki on Tuesday morning for being hit for four consecutive sixes in the final over of England’s defeat against the West Indies a week after declaring he revelled in high-pressure situations.

Deborah Stokes — who was a respected cricketer in New Zealand, where her son was born and raised before moving to England — was alerted to the comments by family members and called in to complain.

It’s understood she immediately went to air because the station believed she was calling about an unrelated segment.

But Heath twice told Mrs Stokes she was off air — and continued the conversation despite discovering she was the mother of the English all-rounder.

After learning the conversation had been broadcast, Mrs Stokes called the station back to officially complain about the audio being put to air.

As a result, Radio Hauraki has taken action. “Matt & Jeremy are famous for identifying where the line is and then ignoring it, however putting Ben’s Mum to air without her knowledge, albeit defending her son, was obviously well over that line,” NZME Group Progam Director Mike McClung said in a statement to news.com.au. “They’ve been suitably reprimanded, and are off-air tomorrow.”

The following is a transcript of the conversation.

Deborah: I wanted to speak to somebody off air please.

Matt: You wanted to speak to somebody off air?

Deborah: Yes

Matt: OK. You’re off air.

Deborah: I am?

Matt: Yeah

Deborah: OK, that’s fine. Look, I’m just ringing in regards to the program that’s on air, I think it’s Matt and Jeremy? I just wanted to basically I guess put forward my thoughts in regards to the way they have bagged the English cricketer Ben Stokes this morning.

Matt: Yes

Deborah: When they have never met him, they don’t know him and maybe if they had tempered the inappropriate remarks and name calling with some quotes of some supportive tweets he’s received from some very well-known cricketers and just your ordinary Joe Bloggs cricket supporters, maybe ...

Matt: Could you slow down a bit, I’m writing this complaint down. I’ve got to get it through to Matt and Jeremy. OK cool.
Deborah: I don’t know whether they realise he was actually born and bred in New Zealand and quite frankly has family all over the country. And for those who listen to your station, for them to sit and listen to their cousin and their grandson being bagged like that is absolutely unconscionable and I’m his mother and I’m totally brassed off.

Matt: You’re brassed off are you?

Deborah: Oh yes I am brassed off.

Matt: Well he’s a great cricket player, he’s amazing.

Deborah: I know he is, but it’s not even about the cricket. It’s about the personal attack on him. They called him arrogant and then they called him some sort of name. They don’t know him! They wouldn’t have a bloomin’ clue!

Matt: I don’t remember them calling him any other words, other than he made some pretty arrogant comments before the game.

Deborah: No he didn’t! It’s a load of rubbish!

Matt: Yes he did.

Deborah: Arrogance isn’t a part of his make up.

Matt: Look, I’m writing it down here to tell Matt and Jerry he’s a great player and that his mum loves him.

Deborah: Are you being smart here?

Matt: No.

Deborah: I just want to get the point across ...

Matt: He’s an amazing cricket player. He’s incredible. He does our country proud and geez we’d love to have him playing for New Zealand. He’s an amazing, amazing cricket player. Incredible.

Deborah: I get that, but what I’m saying is, for my family — and a lot of my family have rung me and said ‘have you heard this, Deb?’ — I’m just really disappointed. Say those things and then temper it with some positives. Have a look on Twitter, see the likes of Kevin Pietersen, Tino Best, Graham Onions — all of those people giving him their support because they know that tomorrow is another day.

Deborah: You’re a lovely woman Debs and thanks for call and we’ll make sure that gets righted on the show. You have a great day.

Worth commenting that I played grade cricket in Perth for a few English winters and got absolute shit on the pitch but lots of beers from Aus opponents off the pitch.

Great way to play the game.

With the size of population they have, and the fact they keep winning proper rugby matches (as opposed to ones that don't count) , I might be inclined to chirp occasionally if I was them.

With all due respect to Sven, I'd have the Kiwis any day rather than smacked arse face Smith, attack dog Warner, I'm not fast enough Mitch Marsh and utterly cunty Starc and Hazlewood.

Jonah was on here as Jonah Lomas with a name in tribute to Jonah Lomu the egg chaser.
When Lomu died Lomas's tribute was to disown the name and return as East Arse Bandit or something.

After working with many Kiwi's in the city, I learnt a long time ago not to bother talking about Rugby Union with them.

I like Kiwi's, but that particular sport turns them into the most arrogant people in the entire world.

Plus let's be honest, Jonah may say the odd silly thing (don't we all), but he's hardly up there with the likes of Fordy in the berk stakes.
