“I was just going to say something happened while I was on your TV show,” Phillips said.

“Because I’m on the phone right now, I got an email with the tagline in it that said ‘you bought dirty and paid whore’.

“If I appear on anything, this is what I get.

“And if I take this to the police now, I won’t be able to confess to them because they hate me because I’m a woman.”

She added: “I was able to go to the police about another individual who is currently in prison.
