Australian DJs

Ducking for Cover

The two Australian DJs at the center of the Kate Middleton hospital prank have gone RADIO SILENT since news broke that the nurse at the hospital committed suicide ... TMZ has learned. 

The DJs are under serious fire after pulling off a stunt where they pretended to be the Queen of England (fake voice and all) and duped nurse Jacintha Saldanha into connecting them to the people treating Middleton, who revealed details about Kate's condition.

Saldanha's body was discovered early this morning ... and cops believe it's an obvious suicide.

TMZ called the Australian radio station where the DJs work ... and were told by the executive producer that the DJs will NOT be taking any calls, period.


The E.P. explained ... the DJs have been "ordered" not to speak to the media. It's unclear who issued the order.

The producer added, "I advise you to stop trying to call them."

LOOK INTO THE NURSE'S BACKGROUND... SHE HAD MENTAL ISSUES PRIOR TO THE SUICIDE. EITHER FINANCIAL PROBLEMS, MEDICAL ISSUES, FAMILY DRAMA, BF/GF SH*T GOIN ON. THAT'S WHAT REALLY TRIGGERED HER MENTAL DRAMA AND SHE KILLED HERSELF. POINT BLANK. #TRUTH!!

It boggles my mind that people are blaming these DJs. The fault is of the woman who took her own life, and the attitudes of those in the UK. They all act like the Royals are Gods and Goddesses when they **** just the same way you and I do. People here in America get treated 10x worse than this lady did on a daily basis an we don't go around offing ourselves. It is an absolutely tragedy that a life was to be lost but to blame these two people for pulling one pf the most harmless pranks is sickening. The nurse patched them through, and the second nurse gave information. That is the fault of their own and no one else.

who cares...seems to me the bitch had more serious problems then a prank call...and im tired of hearing about a pregnancy to a Monarcy thats been dead for years...Royal family is a white elephant for england...they hold no power at all...just spend tax payers money.....they are a cold and useless family...the only interesting person in this family was Princess Diana and when she died (or rather murdered by the Royals), that whole pompus familys respect went down the toilet...these cold azz Royals dont care anything about anyone but themselves!

The family probably had this nurse kills the same way they killed Princess Diana. I don't trust that shady inbred family at all.

While I am not condoning the stupid actions on the part of these two dj's' I do have to express the fact that this nurse didn't decide to kill herself just because of this prank call. More than likely the nurse who took her life was mentally ill & depressed & had some wiring crossed. However what the prank call did do was set this already suicidal woman over the top. To a degree the dj's who pulled this tragic stunt should be held accountable.

"I advise you to stop trying to call them".

And who they hell are you to tell ANYBODY who they can call? You are a NOBODY. I'd keep calling just to piss you off and show you what I think of your advice.

I'd say the Hospital and Royal Family came down on her hard, plus all of the arse kissing fans made her life miserable. maybe threatened her, see what you all did you all did.

Too bad they didn't follow that advice before something bad happened. I hate radio DJs. They are all about ratings. That is why I've switched over to satellite radio so I don't have to hear all the insane nonsense that DJs say and do just for ratings. They need to be put on leave without pay for this stupid prank. Everythings all fun and games until someone gets hurt.

This whole thing makes me sick! What the hell is wrong with people??? Princess Diana was hounded and her privacy invaded from the time she was 19 and dating Prince Charles. This has got to STOP. There has to be some severe penalty for continually invading the privacy of famous people. Those 2 DJ's should hang their heads in shame and be fired. Now this poor nurse who was taken in by the prank phone call has killed herself. Probably from embarrassment for believing the prank call and feeling terrible that she gave out this very private (none of anybodys f-ing business) information. I personally think there should be mandatory 15 year jail sentencing for harrassing famous people and invasion of privacy. The photogs should be stopped from following people for a picture and for camping outside their homes. They should have significant jail sentences imposed for their stalking and harrassment. They are bottom feeders like those 2 DJ's. I wish Kate and William a wonderful life and most of all "PRIVACY". Didnt we learn from what happened to Diana? TMZ is in the same category. I am very sorry for that poor nurses family. May she rest in peace.

REALLY? so if you get fired are you going to kill yourself? and nobody even said the nurse got fired. and what type of hospital has the ROYAL family admitted and does not take extra precautions to make sure people DONT pull pranks like the djs? i think the American people just want something to bitch about. really people? What if she simply had a heart attack?
