Evelyn Cusack on Jean Byrne
Evelyn Cusack rejected allegations that her remarks on “frivolously dressed” TV presenters were aimed at her colleague Jean Byrne. Last month, VIP reported on the weather forecaster’s references to television personalities who chose to dress in a certain way. The outspoken host of Met Eireann said it was “difficult to take a lady seriously when you hear her leather skirt squeaking and her earrings hanging.”
After the interview with Women’s Way was posted, critics were fast to believe that her remarks were about Jean Byrne, who is renowned for her “out there” fashion decisions, which included leather clothes. Mother-of-one Evelyn was fast to consume her words and rejected the allegations as a “hullabaloo,” stating there were no concealed digs or insults whatsoever. Speaking to the RTE Guide, the meteorologist insisted that she “was not getting to anyone.”
“The thing is that when I joined the RTE weather service in 1988, there was a dress code and that dress code, which is still my ethos, is that I wasn’t going to stand out while I was reading the weather. I didn’t get anybody, “she clarified. Despite her lengthy and successful thirty-year career as a weatherwoman, Jean also disclosed that if she could “do it all over again,” she would choose a distinct job. “You know, if I had the opportunity to do it all over again, I wouldn’t be a singer or a dancer or a meteorologist, I would be a geologist,” she said.
