It's the talk of the internet... Channel Ten Adelaide newsreader Belinda Heggen's dig at Mark Aiston. [videolink]109996[/videolink]During the local Ten news in Adelaide Belinda made a passing comment at Mark Aiston as he wrapped up the sport which left everyone (including Aiston) shocked ... and then in tears!
We can tell you that both her comment and footage is very much real after the video set Facebook and Twitter alight with talk of the footage being fake due to Heggen's lack of expression.
It turns out the Newsreader was just as shocked as us by her comment telling Nova FM "He (Mark Aiston) just stepped wide open. He just served it up, I had to lob it back! It was only afterward when we crossed to the weather and went to a commercial break we just lost it".
While the hits on the video continues to rise we had to ask her if she got into trouble from the producers and News Director over the comment but it was just the opposite. "They lost it in my ear, everyone cracked up laughing. Mark was still in a state of shock. I must admit, once it hit me I thought oh no, am i going to get fired?" she laughs.
We can assure you that Belinda isn't going anywhere!
