In order to actually get someone to watch the new season of The Bachelor, ABC is promoting the program by showing Brad Womack getting slapped in the face by Chantal O'Brien. Brad says the slap was hard and real, but that he deserved it and does not want Chantal prosecuted. Umm, so if he slapped her and she said she deserved it, do you think ABC would be promoting that?? What the heck is the difference? No one ever deserves to be slapped or punched and although Brad says he does not condone any violence in a relationship, I think his comments suggest otherwise. Chantal said she did it for all scorned women everywhere. And to get attention for life after the show. Next Bachelorette anyone??
