Australian DJs Mel Greig and Michael Christian, whose prank call to Kate Middleton's nurse is being blamed for her suicide last week, spoke about the tragedy for the first time this weekend. "It was meant to be a silly little prank that so many people have done before. This wasn't meant to happen," said Greig. "There's not a minute that goes by that we don't think about her family and what they must be going through, and the thought that we might have played a part in that is gut-wrenching."
