*Excess Baggage* feud: Darryn VS Ajay

Excess Baggage feud: Darryn VS Ajay

He says she’s lazy, she says he’s a bully…the war of words between these celeb fatties is getting nasty.

Controversial paparazzo Darryn Lyons makes no bones about it – he does not like equally controversial former Biggest Loser host Ajay Rochester. “We don’t get along at all,” he confirms.

Darren says Ajay is a “manipulative attention seeker” whose real personality will be revealed during the challenges on celebrity weight loss show Excess Baggage, where eight overweight celebrities, including AFL legend Robert “Dipper” DiPierdomenico, singer Christina Anu, Beaconsfield miner Brant Webb and Muriel’s Wedding star Gabby Millgate, are teamed with eight ordinary, plus-size Australians.

“I don’t think she has played the game in the spirit of the game and her partner has had to carry 99 per cent of the load,” Darryn snarls. While Ajay at first refused to name Darryn on her personal blog – merely calling him “he who shall not be mentioned” – there is little doubt she is talking about the Big Pictures boss who is at war with her. She labelled him a “so-called hilariously entertaining villain” before later claiming he is a bully.

Ajay, 42, blogged: “Maybe kids see bullies on reality TV shows become even more famous and successful and think, “Well it works for him, everybody loves him/her for it, maybe I will be even more popular by picking on someone else!”
