CNN's "Oh $hit" moment of the week

CNN `Live From...' the ladies room - Yahoo! News
NEW YORK - Kyra Phillips, anchor of CNN's "Live From...," unwittingly upstaged President Bush's speech in New Orleans with on-the-air analysis of her husband and the marriage of her brother — all live from a CNN ladies room. Unaware that her wireless microphone was "live" during her break, Phillips could be heard overriding Bush's prepared address Tuesday as he was seen marking the first anniversary of Hurricane Katrina. The Atlanta-based Phillips, in conversation with an unidentified woman in an echoey room, dismissed most men with a vulgar term, but called herself "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." A few moments later, she observed that "brothers have to be, you know, protective. Except for mine. I've got to be protective of him." Why? "His wife is just a control freak." At that point, another voice cut in: "Kyra." "Yeah, baby?" replied Phillips on hearing her name. "Your mike is on. Turn it off. It's been on the air."
Why am I guessing that the next family reunion might be a little more "interesting" than normal?
