9 of the most Amanda Brunker things that have ever happened

Amanda <3

AMANDA BRUNKER’s LATEST venture – a TV3 show called ‘Danger: Amanda at Work’, is textbook Amanda, and we love her for it.

It features the former beauty queen, journalist, novelist and Friend to Bono trying her hand at a number of risky roles, from fishing to pig farming.

It’s SO Amanda Brunker that it got us thinking about the other Amanda Brunker-esque carry on that keeps us coming back for more…

Being friends with Bono

And don’t you forget it!

Her Oxegen performance

When Jessie J was forced to pull out of Oxegen 2011 due to a broken foot, Amanda stepped in, performing just one song on the Vodafone Stage in Punchestown. About 17 journalists showed up. And four confused punters. SO Amanda Brunker.

The song? U2′s With Or Without You.

Bono strikes again.

Her Twitter beef with singer Azealia Banks

Brunker described herself as “not black enough” to do Banks credit. Banks lost the head.



The full exchange is here.

Also, at one time she even featured gloriously in the ‘feuds’ section of Banks’ Wikipedia page. Alas, the reference has now been removed.
