In today’s hilarious hair news, a Georgia reporter literally got her wig snatched on live television last week. Thankfully, it wasn’t due to any reality tv drama — instead, a ring-tailed lemur was to blame.

WALB Chief Meteorologist Yolanda Amadeo was interviewing a zoo rep when the animal jumped on her shoulders. While she seems a bit uncomfortable, she continues to push through the interview. But when the lemur jumps off her, her wig goes with it.

As she tried to properly adjust her wig, the animal handler kept right on talking — and the lemur came back for round two. (Thank goodness she had some fresh cornrows un underneath.)


Ahh, we can’t even imagine the jokes back at the station. Let this be a lesson to all of us to protect our edges and secure our wigs!
