The audience was in hysterics when Kathy met Kylie last week when she appeared with Kylie Minogue to launch the singer's new home furnishings range.

Chick lit novelist Kathy Lette didn't shy away from jokes about her fellow Aussie at the gala event to unveil Kylie At Home.

She even said the diminutive songstress was "more controlling than Liz Taylor's pantyhose" when it comes to collaborating with designers, prompting Kylie to mock-punch her compatriot. Remarking on the singer's ostrich feather mini-dress, Ms Lette added: "Just look at that dress! If I wore it people would think I'd just got laid!

"They'd say, 'I suppose a pluck would be out of the question?'"

I'm am often so tired I throw the clothing into the machine with the kids still in them!

"I asked Kylie if she was worried about all the men who could now go around town saying that they'd been to bed with Kylie. She laughed and I thought yes, in their sweet dreams.
