The self-proclaimed ‘hoarder’ and glamorous TV star promised 1970s and 80s pieces in New York City, including evening gowns and fifteen pairs of shoes.
Veteran TV presenter with a penchant for shiny pieces, Kerri-Anne Kennerley, has announced she will be auctioning off her possessions as she upgrades from her seven-bedroom mansion to a three-bedroom unit.
the old Workshop 10 The panelist, who was dropped from the program in 2020, recently sold her sprawling property in Sydney’s Woollahra more than two decades old for $22million, snapping up a flat in Double Bay.
To lighten the load, Kennerley allegedly whipped wooden furniture as well as evening dresses, 15 pairs of shoes, hats and scarves, during an online sale, according to The Daily Telegraph.
“I’m a well-known hoarder,” the 68-year-old joked about her wardrobe.
“Basically, I’m moving out after 24 years, so a lot of the stuff I’ve accumulated, including stuff I collected in the 70s and 80s in New York, has to go.”
The online auction will be announced shortly by Lawsons Auctioneers.
Kennerley sold the house she shared with her late husband John in August last year. The tantalizing off-market sale broke records in the region with its $22 million price tag.
John died aged 78 in February 2019 from complications from a tragic fall in 2016 which left him in a wheelchair.
He was paralyzed after slipping off a balcony while taking a photo during a golf tournament in Coffs Harbour, NSW, in March 2016.
After being airlifted to hospital with fractures to the C2 and C3 vertebrae, he was put into an induced coma, spent six weeks in intensive care and underwent multiple operations. Doctors diagnosed him as an incomplete quadriplegic.
In the years that followed, he struggled with several health issues and eventually died “peacefully” in his sleep with his wife by his side.
Sharing a photo from their wedding day on Instagram, Kerri-Anne wrote in the caption that it was with “a heavy heart and awful sadness” that she confirmed her husband’s death.
“John passed away peacefully with his son Simon and I by his side,” she wrote.
“John, you were the love of my life.”
The two married in 1984.
