We all have fears.

Imagine having your worst fear play out on live TV.

That is what happened to CNN reporter Abby Phillip.


While participating in a panel discussion from West Palm Beach, Florida—during a live CNN broadcast—Abby Phillip realized there was a lizard climbing up her leg.


She tried her best to keep her composure in a clip that has been making the rounds on social media.

Watch it here.




Abby can be seen moving from side to side and looking at her feet. Once the other reporters realized something was wrong, she is asked:

"Abby, what was that?"

To which she replied:

"It was a lizard climbing on me. Sorry. That happened on live television."

Her coworkers made sure she was OK to which she responded, joking:


"I don't think it's okay, but I'm fine. At least it wasn't an alligator."

Abby even tweeted about the incident.

Fans and colleagues came out to show their support and praise for the reporter and how she handled the situation.







Abby's comment about the lizard and how it may not be OK did bring some ire from viewers.





But there were a few jokes tossed in.



And don't worry about the lizard.

There's no shortage of excellent horror fiction out there. Recently I read The Terror by Dan Simmons and can't remember the last time I felt that claustrophobic and nervous. But I am also a fan of quite a few classics. Are there any other horror books that capture grief as effectively as Stephen King's Pet Sematary? What other book evokes folk horror as beautifully as Thomas Tryon's Harvest Home? Let's not forget this wonderful classic: The Haunting of Hill House. I could rave about that one (and Shirley Jackson) for days. All of these books left their mark on me and yes, I'd include them on a list (if I were to make one) of some of the scariest books I've read.

People had their own opinions to share––and books to recommend––after Redditor Tylerisdumber asked the online community,

"What's the scariest book you've ever read?"

Today's the day to get the answers you didn't know you needed.
