Unaware that her wireless microphone was still on during a ladies room. break, CNN anchor Kyra Phillips was heard talking over President Bush's speech Tuesday in New Orleans addressing the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.
She gabbed about her husband and the marriage of her brother during her chat with an unidentified woman in the can. She even slammed men with a vulgar term, but saved her hubby from her wrath by saying she is "very lucky in that regard. My husband is handsome and he is genuinely a loving -- you know, no ego -- you know what I'm saying? Just a really passionate, compassionate, great, great human being. And they exist. They do exist. They're hard to find. Yup. But they are out there."
"His wife is just a control freak."
At that point, another voice cut in and said, "Kyra."
"Yeah, baby?" she cooed.
"Your mic is on. Turn it off. It's been on the air."
At that point, flustered CNN anchor Daryn Kagan cut in and summarized Bush’s speech up until that point.
Phillips later apologized to viewers "for an issue we had with our mics" and "for a little bit of an interruption there during the president."
CNN issued its own official apology "to our viewers and the president for the disruption," and apologized to the White House, calling the mishap "a technical malfunction with the audio board."
I then laughed until I peed.
