In recent Hollywood news, the Aussie radio DJs cried over KATE MIDDLETON‘s hospital nurse’s alleged suicide after she connected their call to another nurse.
The two Australian 2Day FM radio DJs, Mel Greig and Michael Christian, who called in to the King Edward VII hospital as soon as news broke that Prince William‘s finally pregnant wife, Kate Middleton, was admitted for severe morning sickness, have broken their silence about the reported suicide of the nurse named Jacintha Saldanha, who picked up and connected their call to someone from the Duchess of Cambridge’s room.
While it was a good-natured prank that had the DJs impersonating the Queen of England, Elizabeth II, and Prince Charles, and successfully getting information about Kate‘s condition, they obviously didn’t have the last laugh.
Greig said about the “tragic turn of events” during an exclusive interview with the local “A Current Affair” show:
“There’s not a minute that goes by that we don’t think about their family and what they must be going through. And the thought that we may have played a part in that is gut-wrenching.”
Her partner, Christian, added:
“Naturally, we’re shattered. We’re people too.”
But the disc jockeys insist, the call was ‘”innocent” and it was impossibly for anyone to “have expected or foreseen what was going to happen.”
“It was just meant to be us being silly, getting hung up on.”
Greig then recalled that they heard the news of Saldanha‘s death over the phone and she admits it was ““the worst phone call I’ve ever had in my life.”
Christian tearfully says that their “sympathy is with the family and the friends of all those affected.”
“I’m more worried about the family, and that’s where the focus should be.”
They are currently suspended from being on air and their show was cancelled in order to put an end to the station’s prank calls.
