Pennsylvannia Senate candidate and controversial former TV host Dr. Mehmet Oz and his wife, Lisa Oz, were recently caught on a hot mic ranting about “f—ing girl reporter” Olivia Nuzzi.

New York Magazine writer Nuzzi recently released a profile of Oz that described the challenges she encountered trying to interview his team. The trepidation led Nuzzi to contact him directly, along with his wife.

Lisa Oz picked up but hung up immediately, which prompted Nuzzi to call again. The second call ended with Oz saying, “Have a nice day,” but it wasn’t disconnected. Nuzzi said that she “remained on the line, hearing every word” of the couple’s ensuing conversation.

“She’s down at the office,” Dr. Oz allegedly said. “Your father called and said there’s a reporter from The New Yorker waiting for me down there who said she had an appointment … We?! We had an appointment to meet today!”

Lisa Oz then asked whether or not Nuzzi had “made up” the appointment to which Oz responded with, “I think she made it up completely! … It’s called being a liar.”

“This f****** girl reporter. This is the girl reporter who broke into some guy’s house and stole all his photo albums,” said Lisa Oz.

The comment was referencing an accusation made by ex-Trump aide Corey Lewandowski in retaliation to Nuzzi reporting on details of his alleged “obsession” with a White House official.
