Producers were forced to hit the 'dump button' when trying to figure what Alex and Richie were talking about when airing the details of the 2017 split.
Kyle speculated what Alex may have been hinting to when KIIS FM listeners heard:
"This station you've been listening to has been dumped."
"This means someone has said something inappropriate and is getting in trouble. The broadcast will return in seconds."
After the program resumed, it was revealed that it wasn't Kyle or Jackie's comments, but newsreader Brooklyn Ross's comments that resulted in the show being dumped.
Brooklyn's comments were not aired due to the show's broadcast delay.
Kyle joked afterwards: "If Brooklyn keeps carrying on like he is, it will be his last day as a newsreader on Earth!"
If you missed Alex and Richie's fight, see the transcript below
Richie: Yeah absolutely. We haven’t spoken since … And you know exactly why and what happened. What I woke up to.
R: I meant I just can’t believe someone would do that to someone.
A: Me? Someone do something to you? Do you actually want to go there Rich? Because I feel like people would have a very big opinion of a woman, being left alone, to do something that involved both of us.
R: Don’t beat around the bush Alex say it. Because you’re not gonna like my response. Because we did talk about it. We talked about the whole thing.
A: Over the phone.
R: Yeah, and what you said to me blew my mind. So if you wanna go into it Alex we can. Again, I’ve had to come to peace with this. I’ve thought about this a lot. I tried so hard to make our relationship work and …
A: You tried hard to make our relationship work?
R: Yeah definitely. 100 per cent.
A: So you don’t think you left any room to grow to try that little bit harder? So you’re honestly sitting there and saying you were perfect in our relationship? Because I wasn’t.
R: No one’s perfect, Alex. Don’t try and put words in my mouth and say I’m saying what I’m not.
A: Yeah but the way you’re saying it is ‘I did this, I did that’.
R: Because I did. I did a lot, Alex. I did so much to try and keep our relationship going and …
A: Yeah because you knew you couldn’t salvage it, because you knew that after what happened, when I was left alone, to go through something massive that no woman should go through.
R: Yeah but you wanted to do it. It was your choice …
A: It was me?! I actually can’t believe that you are telling me that it was me.
R: Yeah. You wanted to go down that pathway because remember, you said to me, that you wanted to focus on your AFL career. That was part of it.
A: No I didn’t!
R: Yes you did, on the phone.
A: What career? I don’t even have an AFL career to focus on.
R: Exactly, that’s why it’s so crazy Alex. That’s why I’ve come to peace with everything else
A: I don’t even know what you’re talking about … AFL career.
R: Yeah, exactly. That’s what I told myself.
A: So you’re going to sit there and say to me that all of that was my decision and we didn’t have a conv …
R: No, no we talked about it. Alex you’re a mother. I know that, clearly. I spoke to you at length about that because you’ve gone down that pathway. You know what is involved with that. We spoke at length about it.
A: But you knew what it did to me though. You even said it yourself.
R: I supported you and your decisions and everything that you wanted to do.
A: Yeah, but where were you?
R: Alex, how are you supposed to click your fingers? I’m just supposed to appear places? You changed the goalposts so many times.
A: But that doesn’t matter. If you’re a man and you’re in that situation, you move mountains to be there for your partner.
R: Yeah but there’s achievable and there’s not achievable. Why wouldn’t you just wait until I could be there?
A: Richie, you had 48 hours.
R: I don’t think I had 48 hours.
A: Yes you did. Trust me, I remember.
Nothing explicitly was said.
“It’s OK. I’m happy that you’re in a good spot. That you’ve grown as a person. It’s all good, I’ve put that to bed,” Richie said.
Alex added, “I don’t have any ill feelings towards you. I’ve put it to rest. I’ve moved on.”
