Georgia Love in road rage attack as driver ‘SCREAMS’ at her while parking

Georgia Love has revealed she was ‘screamed at’ by another driver in Melbourne‘s CBD this week.

The Bachelorette star, who recently left her TV career at Channel Seven for a job in public relations, took to Instagram on Wednesday to confirm she’d been involved in a road rage attack while attempting to park her car.

On a black screen, the 33-year-old wrote: ‘Just got properly screamed at by a driver because I dared to hold her up 20 seconds to reverse park.’

She ended on a positive note, noting the incident meant that Melbourne was bustling once again as the Covid-19 pandemic looks to be drawing to a close.

‘The CBD is back,’ she added, alongside a smiley-face and love-heart emoji.

The incident comes just weeks after Georgia announced her new career move in a statement to The Daily Telegraph, telling the publication that she was excited to begin her next chapter in the media industry.

The announcement came approximately five months after Seven yanked Georgia off the air and moved her to a behind-the-scenes role after she received backlash for a ‘racist’ Instagram post.

Prior to the scandal, Love worked as a news reporter and presenter for the network.

She’s now left Seven to join storytelling agency Enthral as a senior public relations and content manager.

Her new role will reportedly focus on ‘positive and uplifting stories’.

‘I’m looking forward to putting the skills, knowledge and experience learnt from 11 years working in newsrooms into something new, while still remaining within the media industry,’ Love said in a statement. 

‘Storytelling has always been what I love the most about being a journalist, so when the opportunity came up to work with an agency that puts storytelling first and has a strong journalistic DNA, it couldn’t have been a better fit.’

The former reality star added that she feels ‘extremely positive’ about her surprise career change.

She was pulled from her on-air duties at Channel Seven in September and relegated to the production desk just days after posting an offensive video on Instagram. 

The journalist had sparked backlash for sharing footage of a cat behind the window of an Asian restaurant and writing: ‘Shop attendant or lunch?!’

She deleted the video an hour later and apologised for causing ‘offence’, but at the time denied the post had any racist ‘insinuation’.

Georgia also posted a similar ‘joke’ about pets and Chinese restaurants in 2013.

Following a workplace investigation, Seven alerted staff via email that Georgia had been ‘counselled’ and reassigned to an off-camera role ‘effective immediately’.

A Seven spokesperson told Daily Mail Australia: ‘We have addressed this matter internally and disciplinary action has been taken.

‘Seven does not condone this inappropriate conduct and all of our staff have the right to work in a safe, nurturing workplace free from prejudice.’

Shortly after that, Love found herself in hot water again when she was called out by a colleague in leaked emails obtained by the Herald Sun for chastising the newsroom over grammar.

She was shamed by a senior reporter for correcting the newsroom over the incorrect use of the word ‘surgeries’ in an email titled ‘grammar note’ this week.

The Herald Sun understands the email was sent by Love following a bulletin read by reporter Melina Sarris.

In a leaked email also obtained by The Herald Sun, a senior reporter called out the former Bachelorette for her ‘unreasonable’ email, encouraging the team to ‘carry on’ with their ‘great work’.

Career: Following The Bachelorette, Love spent several years working with 10 as a weather presenter and on-air news talent

Georgia started her broadcast career as a news anchor for WIN News in Tasmania. 

She then joined Channel 10 as their official Bachelorette for season two in 2016, before staying with the network as a weather presenter and occasional on-air talent for shows like Studio 10.

In 2021, she made the move over to Channel Seven to work as a news reporter and producer. 

In addition to her journalism career, Love also dabbles as a podcast host and social media influencer.
