ACTRESS Noorkhiriah (pic), 45, who was injured while shooting the drama Bosskid, is not blaming the production crew and has instead admitted it was her fault for insisting on performing her own stunt, Berita Harian reported.

She appealed to all to not blame the production following the minor accident that injured her hands.

“Fortunately, I did not break my hand. It is only a tissue tear and swelling.

“What happened was my fault, not the production, so don’t blame the production,” she posted on Instagram.

Earlier, the actress – whose full name is Noorkhiriah Ahmad Shapie – lost control of the motorcycle she was riding and rammed it into a car that was parked by the roadside.

She also insisted that it was not due to her lack of motorcycle-riding skills, having done so in her previous drama Bedah Tong Gas.

“I don’t want to dwell much on what happened as I am safe. Only suffering slight pain,” she said.

> Gossipmongers were buzzing after a photo of Indonesian singers Bunga Citra Lestari (BCL) and Ariel Noah was posted online, Kosmo! reported.

The photo, which was used as a thumbnail on the YouTube Sekarang Lagi channel, portrayed Ariel holding BCL’s stomach, seemingly to indicate she was pregnant.

The title of the video, “BCL akui soal hamil anak Ariel Noah (BCL admits she is pregnant with Ariel Noah’s child)”, only invited more speculation.

However, BCL has rubbished rumours via a video, saying her tummy was a result of late-night snacking.

“This is normal I believe it (snacking) may have contributed to the change of the shape of my stomach,” she said.

Ariel also denied the rumours.
