An unfortunate combination of angles meant a reflection on the back of a door could be seen in the mirror behind Meza -- and so too could her fully-buff hubby.
"So people won't have to do 'this' much longer," Meza says, clipping her fringe as she signed off "In Stockton, Melinda Meza, KCRA 3 News", completely oblivious that her husband's manscape was also fully on display in the background.
"Oh she is brave!" the KCRA anchor exclaimed when the camera cut back to her, likely referring to Meza cutting her own bangs at the end of the segment, in a hilariously appropriate segue.
Eagle-eyed viewers quickly spotted the shower scene slip-up, and the couple of 16 years became immediate internet celebrities.
Some questioned why a reporter would film while her husband was showering; others questioned why a husband would shower while his wife is filming; a few hoped that it indeed was (or wasn't) her husband; but most just shared and enjoyed a laugh.
As for Melinda herself, she has yet to address showergate... although she hasn't shared the segment on her social media as she normally does.
