She was assisting mentalist Anthony Laye yesterday morning in a demo at the time, and as far as being a magicians helper, she definitely didnt nail it, which in this case was probably a good thing. The popular Studio 10 host proved you dont learn handywoman skills at journalism school when she nearly accidentally shot herself with a nail gun during a mind-reading stunt this morning.
