'I'M NOT EINSTEIN', SAYS TEARFUL BINGLE AS SHE CLAIMS RADIO INTERVIEW WAS AN 'INVASION'

Following Thursday's interview with Brisbane's B105 radio station, Lara Bingle has told a rival radio show the interview was an "invasion" that brought her to tears, as she explained her reality show was "not trying to change the world. I'm not Einstein".

Turning to the Brisbane airwaves again on Friday, Bingle spoke with Nova106.9, who took the opportunity to take a jab at the rival network, labelling them as a "try hard."

Bingle said the show had treated her with no respect. She also defended her Twitter rant which included a call for B105's Labby, Stav and Abby to be taken off the air.

"There was just no respect. I never go to my Twitter only use it to good use and that was just so necessary. I actually went off and I was in tears. I just felt so confronted by everything," Bingle told Nova's Ash, Kip and Luttsy.

"It was just one question after another. [With] this show (Being Lara Bingle) I'm not saving the world, I'm not trying to change the world, I'm just doing a reality show. I'm not Einstein. I'm not trying to achieve anything else," she said.

Bingle said she took responsibility for subjecting herself to the public's glare admitting she is "putting everything out there.

"But scenarios like asking me a question of what [ex-fiance] Michael [Clarke] thought, it was just stuff that was not necessary," she said.

Being Lara Bingle will debut on Network 10 on Tuesday and Bingle admitted she's yet to see the show herself.

In yesterday's interview Labby, Stav and Abby questioned Lara Bingle about why she should have her own reality show.

Things went downhill to the point where she was described as being "Australia's answer to a question we never asked".

At one stage Abby called her Laura and had to correct herself.

It ended with a curt goodbye from Bingle and the station inviting listeners who "don't like Lara" to call in.

In this morning's Nova interview, presenter Luttsy called the B105 team “try hard.”

“I haven’t heard [the interview] but what I’m thinking is that someone’s told them that [their] show’s not going so well. So the show’s got to be more edgy but what happens when you’re not edgy is you’re a try hard and than you try to be edgy but than you’re just really mean.”

This morning Bingle also tweeted The Courier-Mail's entertainment feed with "Thankyou for an honest article today."
