Candice Warner spoke about her 2007 scandal with Sonny Bill Williams on Channel Seven’s The Morning Show on Tuesday.
The former Ironwoman, 35, was asked by hosts Kylie Gillies and Larry Emdur what it feels like to be questioned about her past Monday night at SAS Australia.
With a philosophical approach, the mother of three replied: “I think everything that has happened is in the past for a reason, and I am doing great things now, I am married and have three beautiful daughters.”

Candice added that there was a certain sense of “relief” in discussing her past on the military-style reality show.
“I’ve never really talked about my feelings and how I’ve dealt with them or what I do to cope with certain situations,” she said.
“Everyone makes mistakes, but it’s how you recover and how you deal with them and move on, and I feel like I’m doing the best I can.”

Earlier in the day, Candice revealed on Fitzy & Wippa why she had chosen to speak on the 2007 crash show, where she and Sonny were photographed intimate in a hotel bathroom.
She said she had had enough of “ always being sled ” following the scandal, particularly in 2018, when South African fans wore masks with Sonny Bill’s face in an attempt to humiliate her and irritate her cricketer husband.
“It’s a classic case of society, isn’t it, Candice? Where the focus was always on you and not on the other person you had that meeting everyone was talking about, “said radio host Ryan” Fitzy “Fitzgerald.
‘I know you get back up, but that’s your mechanism, isn’t it? Is this how you have dealt with it all your life? ‘
Speaking: Earlier in the day, Candice revealed on Fitzy & Wippa why she chose to talk about the 2007 incident, in which she and Sonny were pictured together in a hotel restroom.
Candice replied: ‘It is, because no one has ever really approached or talked to me. I’ve always been skidded, I’ve always had people screaming or people at cricket wearing face masks. ‘
In cricket, the term “sledding” is used to describe the practice by which some players or fans try to gain an advantage for their team by verbally insulting or intimidating an opposing player.
Candice continued: “So obviously I’m going to be that kind of person, because no one has ever told me correctly – it’s one of those things that was” right, isn’t it? “- so instead we will only move it with the sled.
When asked if it was a relief to have had the conversation about SAS Australia, she added: ‘Not at the time; but now seeing him last night, yes, definitely.

Candice was questioned about her version of events in Monday night’s episode and, although reluctant to discuss it, briefly hinted at the “mistake” that happened years earlier.
He told interrogations of the show: ‘There have been incidents in South Africa where people tried to tease me, tease me, belittle me in front of my family due to an incident that happened in the past. And they think it’s funny.
Asked to delve into the adventure with Sonny, Candice replied: ‘It was just a big mistake. I don’t want to talk about that.’
She was slightly more open during a camera interview before the interrogation, saying of the meeting in the bathroom: ‘When I was 20 I made a very serious mistake. It’s something I’m not proud of but something I’ll never get back to.
“I put myself in a situation where I shouldn’t have and for that reason I brought embarrassment, shame to my family.”
