Channel 7 has confirmed reports from last month that there was an incident between Sunrise host Samantha Armytage and her makeup artist for the last 18 months, Eliza Campagna.
Reports say that Eliza, who was also a professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars, was unhappy with the way Sam treated her during an episode of the show earlier this year. She took the issue to HR telling them that she had been unfairly manhandled by Sam.
Eliza also claims that she was told by Sam that she wasn’t allowed on the studio floor if she was there – unless she was in the bathroom.

The Seven Network’s Director of TV Operations David Porter yesterday said that Samantha hadn’t manhandled her, but had simply put her arm out to stop Eliza walking into a live shot.
The two have reportedly patched things up without bringing higher management into it and Samantha released a statement denying there was any beef.
“This is total rubbish,” she said. “I have a really long history with Eliza. We’ve been mates for many years and she’s in a league of her own. She’s a miracle worker! You should see me without make-up.”
