In 2002, Kennerley returned to the Nine Network where she hosted Kerri-Anne (originally titled 'Mornings with Kerri-Anne') The program's dance instruction segments included Australian politicians – Peter Costello and the macarena, Cheryl Kernot and the Cha-cha-cha and Kevin Rudd and the rhumba. A memorable interviewee was the normally reticent Priscilla Presley who discussed her ex-husband Elvis and daughter Lisa Marie. After a challenging interview with John Stamos he later conceded that he had been drunk, confirming media speculation raised at the time. Kennerley also persuaded Russell Crowe to hurl himself against a wall on her show. Kennerley caused controversy in 2010 while discussing sexual assault allegations involving two Collingwood Football Club players by referring to women who socialize with footballers as "strays" and for suggesting that "responsibility cuts both ways". She hosted the show for nine years, before it was cancelled in late 2010, and replaced with Mornings, which began in early 2011.
