Welfare fraudster and weight loss reality tv star shares her further thoughts on Canberra

Anyone with a vaguely worthwhile life would most likely have been blissfully ignorant of the existence of Ajay Rochester, a strange loud orange-skinned blonde-haired woman best known for pleading guilty to welfare fraud and reality TV weight loss perennial status.

But last night she and her friend Mardi Croke of Queanbeyan kicked off a sustained half hour kicking of Canberra on international television.

And to follow up what is beginning to look suspiciously like a well-orchestrated Ajay Rochester publicity campaign she’s now blogged what she really thinks about people us:

Here’s my comment: Canberra get a life, get over yourselves, get a sense of humor and hey, at least people are talking about you – which they weren’t last week. If you can’t see that it was a spontaneous, spur of the moment comedy banter with the man who WILL succeed David Letterman then you are even dumber and more backwater bred than I thought just one day ago. I wasn’t aware that Canberra was governed by a communist doctrine denying anyone the right to his or her own opinion.

The fact that this has become news just PROVES how quiet Canberra really is (cue the crickets), because the news here in LA is the poor economy that just can’t seem to recover, earthquakes happening around the world and if LA will be next, a shooting at USC, the tragic shooting of Trayvon Martin and the possible arrest of the man who has had nearly 2 months of freedom after committing what will surely amount to a murder charge and whether or not Obama will serve another term. Canberra who? Where? What????

Seriously, I’ve been to Canberra quite a few times and it has some excellent qualities. I remember with great fondness my friend hanging from the Freefall exhibit at Questacon, the science museum and me almost peeing my pants as she hung there refusing to let got for about ten minutes while a line of disgruntled children chanted for her to please just let go….that was a highlight. I remember loving Canberra’s greatest ever talent, David Branson, like no other man in my life, may he rest in peace. I also remember with fondness the exit sign at the freeway heading back to Sydney, my own very much loved home.

Canberra, I’m sure you could don your white sheets and run me, Guy Pearce, Craig Ferguson and Mardi out of your town the next time we are there, but really, if you REALLY want to look like the sophisticated town you CLAIM/ want to be, then see this for what it is – a brief moment in time where a tired old cliché that Canberra is boring was used to make JOKES! That’s all, along with “my wife” and “knock knock” jokes. Have a little class and laugh at yourself because no one likes to be dictated to, least of all the American people – the majority of who watched the show that went to air.

And in finishing I would like to quote from a great comment I read on the internet earlier today, ” Someone should put a fence around Canberra and let The Hunger Games begin!”

Let’s not make a Black Mountain Tower out of a toothpick!

Thank you and good night!

Having lived in London and spent a bit of time in many other major cityies I really can’t see any of them laughing this stuff off.

Heck if you’d substituted “Beijing” for “Canberra” the US embassy would have burned down by now.

What’s Your opinion?

Look this is a clear example of medical malpractice. The surgeon was meant to do a stomach stable but instead stapled one of the arteries to her brain.

It may explain her apparent memory troubles saying it was spur of the moment, while her friend tells the Canberra Times it was planned with the host. oops.

Maybe we’re over talentless C grade celebs with no comedic material bagging our town because they didn’t receive the latest ‘knock knock’ joke book this last Christmas…

And is anyone else amused that someone from Queanbeyan is dishing Canberra? Somebody send in the tanks across the river.

This seems to have really struck a nerve with you JB. You’ve pointed out that in all likeliness she’s some attention whoring welfare leech, why are you wasting any of your time on her?

Someone from Queanbeyan saying they’re from Canberra.

A bit like me going on the show saying I’m from Sydney and complaining about the bubonic plague outbreaks.

Because millions of people around the world watch the show, and it’s just unfair.

But I imagine Ferguson will get record ratings out of Canberra tonight.

“Someone should put a fence around Canberra and let The Hunger Games begin!”

Very classy, Ajay. Always nice to have someone suggest that a fence is placed around a town with its inhabitants proceeding to systematically murder eachother until one is left.

The Hunger Games? Coming from a former fat arsed lazy mcdonalds eating belugaish slapper, that is apt.

An abundance of exclamation marks and CAPS; says all that needs to be said. Flame of the Week.

Sorry to have to tell you, Ajay, that you’re actually a member of the Canberra diaspora! Make of that what you will!

Ajay, it would have been better of you to just apologise, not go one with another spiteful rant.

Mojo is self-confidence or self-esteem, not over-confidence or kicking the esteem out of others.

I recall it was not just welfare fraud – a few years ago Today Tonight busted her putting her rubbish – her poor child’s torn-up school assignment was the give-away – in her neighbour’s skip bin!
