"She wouldn't have gone to court if she was broke."
Intrigued by Rebekah's motives to cash in on her devastating Wagatha defeat, Kate asked: "If she doesn't need the money, then there will be people who will say after such a brutal bruising going through all of this, why put yourself above the parapet to even be seen trying to cash in on it?

"I don't think she's going to go and lick her wounds. She's come out and said she's disappointed with what the judge said and she doesn't' think she's been treated very fairly by the media or anything.
"If she wants to come out and have her say then why not? Let her come out and have her say. Everyone wants to hear it."
Mum-of-five Rebekah has been inundated with big money offers — going as high as £250,000 — from TV companies for interviews, while pitches for documentaries and book deals have also been received.
It's after Rebekah insisted the judge "got it wrong" after the damning verdict was handed down.
In a statement said: "I am extremely sad and disappointed at the decision that the judge has reached.
"It is not the result that I had expected, nor believe was just. I brought this action to vindicate my reputation and am devastated by the judge's finding.
"The judge accepted that publication of Coleen's post was not in the 'public interest' and she also rejected her claim that I was the 'Secret Wag'.
"But as for the rest of her judgement, she got it wrong and this is something I cannot accept."
