Why Won't Natalia Kills Stop Digging That Hole?
Sacked X Factor NZ judge makes excuses, but still hasn't said sorry...
The former talent show judge - who was sacked for her vicious verbal attack on contestant Joe Irvine - has attempted to deflect blame with some vague comments about TV producers trying to manufacture drama.
She wrote to Billboard: "Obviously sometimes TV producers plan drama for ratings and it (can) totally back fire on them. But if that was another stunt then it was badly (done)."
And she went on to wish Irvine the best, without actually apologising for her scathing remarks to him.
"When you're under contract there's no room for error, so I wish I could have spoken up and addressed Joe sooner," she continued.
"It's awful he got dragged… into this but I wish him all the best on reality TV and with his music."
She also posted a similar sorrynotsorry message on Twitter.
She wrote: "At last! I am relieved that I'm finally able to break the silence... xoxo"

And she included a picture of a short letter which read: "A lot goes on behind the scenes of a reality show and what you see isn't always the whole story.
"The show brought me on to my passion, dramatic expression and perspective. I was encouraged to be outspoken and things got out of hand.
"Joe, I hope you can forgive me and I wish you all the best!"
She even had the cheek to offer the poor lad some advice as she signed off.
"Be natural, unconventional and be you! Love, Natalia Kills."
And after getting that out of the way, she proceeded to big-up her involvement with one of the tracks on Madonna's new Rebel Heart album.
Well, she's gotta earn a living.
