What best describes you?

Amber Harrison, the former mistress of Channel Seven CEO Tim Worner, has started a GoFundMe campaign to get members of the public to pay her whopping legal bills amassed over the past six months.

You can check out the account and donate to Harrison here. As of noon today, $4202 dollars had been donated by 94 members of the public.

The site named “Amber Harrison Guilt-Free TV” urges anyone who feels bad watching Seven due to her legal wrangles with the broadcaster to donate as little as $1.

“If each viewer gave just $1 each, Amber could easily pay off Seven, and you could enjoy Seven’s shows, knowing your favourite network didn’t bankrupt anyone,” the site reads. “For just $1, enjoy Guilt-free TV.”

Those who have already donated appear to support Harrison’s fight against the “big end of town”. “Best of luck. I would back any woman who will take on the big ‘born to rule’ boys world,” wrote one woman who donated $100 to Harrison’s cause.

While another wag pretending to be “TCN Channel Nine” pledged $5 and added: “We challenge 10 to match this or better it!!”

Harrison recently failed in her attempt in the NSW Supreme to show that Seven West Media failed to provide a safe workplace when she was employed there up until 2014. She is prevented from speaking about her relationship with Worner by a permanent gag order placed on her by the courts.

It had been reported that Harrison’s legal bills had hit as high as $330,000; however, the GoFundMe campaign appears to suggest that $200,000 is Harrison’s target.

Harrison had fought Seven in the courts for three years, while during her recent trial her legal team did work pro bono.

The GoFundMe site says once Harrison’s $200,000 target is reached any extra monies will “will be donated to selected charities that support fairness and access to justice in the legal system and to support independent journalism”.

Last week, rogue blogger and self-proclaimed citizen journalist Shane Dowling was imprisoned for three months for contempt of court after he published names of two Seven on-air personalities that Harrison had alleged in court documents that Worner had also had affairs with. Worner has strenuously denied the allegations and was cleared by an internal investigation by the broadcaster.

Harrison has publicly apologised for naming the women, however, stopped short of retracting her comments which has infuriated Seven and its legal team.
