As a Woollahra neighbour, Jackie O’ Henderson breaks down in tears as she confronts her about the bin dispute.
Radio presenter Jackie ‘O’ Henderson was reduced to tears on The Kyle and Jackie O Show after an on-air prank spectacularly backfired.
The 46-year-old had made headlines on Monday after she called blasted the so-called ‘scumbags’ in her neighbourhood who had dumped their rubbish in her bins.
But an apologetic Jackie acknowledged on Wednesday she’d made a mistake after checking inside her bins and realising the rubbish was actually a pile of her own unwanted newspapers that she’d left to pile up on the lawn.
‘A lovely kind neighbour has thought, “I’ll clean up Jackie’s mess and put it in her bin,”‘ she added.
Jackie, who lives in an $11million mansion in Woollahra, in Sydney’s eastern suburbs, was then left mortified after her co-host Kyle Sandilands told her he had a woman on the line claiming to be Jackie’s ‘angry neighbour’.
In reality, it was was actually a KIIS FM staffer pretending to play the role as part of the show’s long-running ‘Only Lying’ prank segment.

‘I’m one of the neighbours in the end of the cul-de-sac and I just wanted to ring and say thanks Jackie for the blast on the radio. I’m pretty p**sed that you blamed us,’ the woman raged.
The horrified mother of one insisted she had never specifically blamed her neighbours for the bin incident.
‘Oh, I’m not! No! I wasn’t!’ Jackie stammered, adding: ‘I didn’t even blame you guys… I never said, “you guys”. I said “someone”!’

But the woman wasn’t satisfied with Jackie’s explanation.
‘I think it was insinuated, that [it was neighbours]. And we live in a pretty nice street,’ she snapped, to which Jackie replied: ‘Yeah, 100 per cent! I love all my neighbours.’
Tension grew as the woman continued to lash out at Jackie while refusing to accept her repeated apologies.

‘There’s a few p**sed-off people in the street, Jackie,’ she warned.
An overwhelmed Jackie then burst into tears, forcing the prank caller to reveal it was just a joke and she wasn’t actually one of Jackie’s neighbours.
Kyle then admitted he may have taken things too far.

‘Jackie is crying… I thought this would be hilarious, and it’s backfired. I’m sorry, Jackie!’ he said.
‘I thought the whole street hated me!’ Jackie wept. ‘I want my neighbours to like me, not hate me!’
The botched prank came two days after Jackie ranted about ‘scumbags’ dumping their rubbish in her bins, saying the mystery act was the ‘lowest of the low’.

She whinged: ‘Some a***hole has dumped all their rubbish in my bins. What a p***k. That’s the lowest of low, you scumbag.’
‘Struggle in the eastern suburbs!’ Kyle laughed, which prompted Jackie, who lives with her 10-year-old daughter Kitty, to explain why she was so irritated.
‘We only get little bins, so every space counts. Little tiny bins,’ she said.
