Sam Armytage reaches out to Karl Stefanovic amid Sunrise feud

After departing Seven's Sunrise earlier this year, Samantha Armytage has been enjoying her time living in the Southern Highlands with her husband Richard Lavender.

Despite leaving the show in March, however, she has found herself involved in a 'feud' with her former colleagues at Sunrise including her successor Natalie Barr.

Now, it seems as though the former Sunrise host is reaching out to the Today Show's Karl Stefanovic and his family.

Karl's wife Jasmine Stefanovic shared a series of photos of herself and daughter Harper in the Southern Highlands with friends before NSW's lockdown.


Sam commented on the snaps, "You guys should have dropped in..."

Jasmine responded, "Next time for sure we would love that! We had to come back for the lockdown."

It comes after Sam hit out at Nat following an interview with The Kyle and Jackie O Show, where she was asked about her relationship with Nat, who said the pair weren't that close off-camera.

Sam dodged the question at first by saying: "Yeah, well, look, I mean it's better to be talked about than not, isn't it in life?"

She then took a little swipe at Nat, adding: "I thought everyone might forget about me when I was having my little sabbatical, but it seems they're not, you know?"

She then took to Twitter to add to what she said on-air, writing: "Look... I’m out. Nat’s wanted the job, forever.. & she’s finally got it. She just needs to get on & enjoy it - & forget about me..(even though I’m unforgettable.) #peaceout."

Nat was reportedly surprised to hear Sam making such "snarky" comments about her given they'd worked together on Sunrise for years, according to New Idea.

"No one was more shocked and saddened over Sam's comments than Nat," a source claimed. "She is gutted and has no idea why the snarkiness continues, even though Sam has been gone [from Sunrise] for months."

They added the Sunrise team is attempting to "make light" of the situation.

"It has got to the stage where the Sunrise gang have a bit of a laugh wondering what little surprise bombshell Sam is going to drop next.

"But truthfully, Nat just wants it to end and be put to bed."
