In the know? They’ve criticised Channel Nine for their portrayal on this year’s season of Celebrity Apprentice, and now it’s been sensationally claimed that The Veronicas’ Lisa and Jessica Origliasso knew exactly what they were signing up for

‘They were totally aware that their bickering would be featured on the show,’ a network insider said of the 36-year-olds.

The source added: ‘They declared that was on-brand for them.’

Daily Mail Australia has reached out to both Channel Nine and a representative for The Veronicas for comment.

Earlier this month, the sisters uploaded a lengthy ‘open letter’ on Instagram Stories, accusing the show’s producers of using ‘manipulative tactics’ and unfair editing.

‘Dear Celebrity Apprentice. This open letter is not for the public, the public is going to form an opinion based off what you put in front of them. This is for the crew and production involved in the show that knows the truth,’ the letter began. 

‘You signed us up for your show under the guise of charity and heart. Our genuine intentions and passion reduced to an edit,’ it continued.  

The musicians also accused the editors of portraying them as being pushy, and even using their mother’s illness ‘for sympathy’.

‘It was you who constantly asked us to reiterate our charity and why we were there… and you turn around and weaponise our words and our mummy’s name – turning them into a knife used to stab us in the heart. Shame on you,’ they raged. 

Lisa and Jessica’s mother, Colleen, has Lewy body dementia and a rare neurological condition called progressive supranuclear palsy. 

The twins, who act as carers for their mother, joined Celebrity Apprentice to raise money for The Brain Foundation, as well as to raise awareness of neurological illness.

‘What you have done to us is gut wrenching, soul destroying and the lowest thing you could ever do to us as women, daughters and carers,’ the letter continued.

‘You have used us at the most fragile time in our lives. This was never a game to us, this is our reality we were fighting for.’

In a previous post on Twitter earlier this month, they accused the show of depicting them as ‘entitled brats’.
