Mau and Edmonds slam ‘creepy’ women’s mag

Mon 6 May 2013 In: New Zealand Daily News View at Wayback

Mau and Edmonds (yes, we asked them before we took this picture!) Auckland couple Ali Mau and Karleen Edmonds have ripped into a woman’s magazine which has published pictures of them kissing and cuddling as they enjoyed a concert. Woman’s Day has a two-page spread of the pair at a concert at Auckland's Villa Maria Estate. Mau tweeted “@womansdaynz hope you're feeling really creepy right now Sido - you should be”. Sido Kitchen is the magazine’s editor. “No friends would talk to WD! They all know how we feel about that one and it's ‘facts’,” the Seven Sharp host added. Edmonds also tweeted: "I don't work for TVNZ so I can say what I like. @womansdaynz you are a bunch of fxxxwits." The piece says the couple wants Anika Moa to sing at their wedding, and she joined in the conversation too “@karleenedmonds ps I am demanding you to have me at your wedding! I'm gonna sing drunk and try it on with Ali. Woohoo!!!!” Mau was outed in the Herald on Sunday as being in a relationship with a woman in 2010, and soon asked gossip magazine to leave her alone. The Woman’s Day ran paparazzi snaps of Mau and said she was heading for a 'sleepover' with Edmonds. She told viewers of TVNZ’s Breakfast she had been stalked for a month, and followed everywhere from the supermarket to her kids’ sports games. "In my mind that's a gross intrusion of their privacy. And frankly, it's more than a little creepy," she said. Mau eventually spoke out about being bisexual at a Queen of the Whole Universe show in November 2010, after which she told GayNZ.com Daily News the speculation had caused her grief and tried to force her out into the open before she was ready. However, she said that at the QWU event, surrounded by thousands of glbt people she had finally felt safe to come out publicly.
