I've nothing to fear from Blathnaid's book -- Sheana

FORMER Afternoon Show frontwoman Sheana Keane has revealed how she and her former co-host Blathnaid Ni Chofaigh still haven't spoken since March 2009, when she vanished from our television screens, citing ill health.

The RTE presenters infamously fell out over an alleged bullying row and rumours of tensions on set.

And Sheana (35) admits that she hasn't met up with Blathnaid since, although she says she has been following her latest TV venture, Celebrity Bainisteoir.

The mum of two went on to explain how she's not in the least worried about the prospect of her former colleague writing an autobiography, insisting that she will be thrilled for the flame-haired RTE star if it goes ahead.

"I haven't seen her because I haven't been in RTE at all, but I've seen a couple of episodes of Celebrity Bainisteoir and I think she's doing very well," Sheana told the Herald. speaking at a press call for Kelloggs.

Psychology

"She's always said she'd love to write a book so I'll be delighted for her if it goes ahead."

Sheana, who holds a masters degree in psychology has just begun an intensive research project across all genres of multimedia, which focuses on the power of positive thinking and communication when it comes to surviving the recession.

According to the media personality: "It's something I've wanted to do for the past five years and with the country in the state it is right now it was the ideal time to start. I'm really enjoying it."

Sheana says she has no regrets about the decision by Montrose bosses to discontinue the Afternoon Show, which she was involved with for five seasons.

"I suppose deep down we knew it was coming.

"Six years is kind of the life span of any programme like that. We were hoping it would continue for another year but these things happen," she said.

The glamorous Sheana was speaking yesterday at the launch of the Kellogg's Perfect Balance Survey, alongside her colleague on RTE's The Health Squad, Dr Mark Hamilton.
