Australian politician Jacqui Lambie found herself in hot water Tuesday after revealing a little too much about her love life – or lack of – to a morning radio show.

Lambie, a freshman senator in the Australian parliament from Tasmania, told the hosts on Hobart's Heart 107.3 that she had not been in a romantic relationship in 11 years because she was "physically and psychologically damaged for so long," when things turned personal, according to Australia Broadcast Company News.

When hosts Kim Napier and Dave Noonan offered to play "Bachelorette" style matchmakers for the 41-year-old politician, she quickly blurted out her requirements.

"They must have heaps of cash and they've got to have a package between their legs, let's be honest," Lambie said in recording clip from the show. "And I don't need them to speak."

The conversation turned more blue when a 22-year-old Jamie called into the show as a prospect for the Lambie, saying he had inherited a "small fortune" and so he was set financially. After asking the caller if he had any diseases, Lambie followed up, per the recording, with "Are you well-hung?"

"Hung like a donkey," Jamie answered. The politician followed by saying "Oh is that right. I've got a 24-year-old son who reckons he is too. (He) says that as well."

Lambie went on to issue an apology after the interview, ABC News stated, saying she was trying to be funny during her time on air and was merely joking throughout.

"I apologize to any radio listeners who may be offended by my comments on Kim and Dave's Show," Lambie said in a statement, per ABC News. "Of course my political enemies will make a big deal out of my comments, but the reality is I was talking with Kim and Dave on Heart FM, not Sarah Ferguson on the ABC."

Matthew Knott, of the Sydney Morning Herald, wrote that the politician and mother of two also complained that her more serious comments during the interview were ignored by the media, such as saving Australians $3,000 a year in the last session of parliament.

"It's probably of little comfort now, but Lambie can rest assured: she's not the first person, and won't be the last, to walk away from a blind date with feelings of regret," Knott wrote.
