Anything can happen on live TV. Whether it's a slip of the tongue or a slip of the wardrobe, whether you're a professional or an amateur, expect the unexpected -- accidents are bound to happen.
In doing a live television show, there's no delay or filter to edit out the gaffes, which can make for exciting tv experience. It can also make for some pretty embarrassing moments. Lucky is this personality who recently experienced a wardrobe malfunction while in the middle of a serious discussion on a tv program -- the show was pre-taped.
Television Personality hosted a high profile TV Special. Prior to the incident, discussion was tough and serious with prominent guests debating on major current issues of the land. TP was perhaps so absorbed in the discussion, or she may have suddenly lost weight that she didn't feel her skirt slowly loosening up the grasp on her waist. Then whammy! TP almost froze in embarrassment as her skirt fell to her feet in full view of all her shocked guests!
People in the control room were doubly shocked at the spectacle of their boss, who cringed mercifully at such an unthinkable misfortune. When the dust had settled and they regained their composure, it was then that the staff went crazy and roared in uncontrollable laughter!
To her credit, TP wore a nice pair of Spanx (a body-shaping undergarment) up to her knees. If that could soften the blow to her ego, then good for her. And she better thank her angels that the show was pre-taped. Otherwise, it could have been another 'award' for her.
Curiously, can someone please show us the unedited copy?
