A Beating Is A Beating Right?

When I read about Real Housewives Of New York City star Kelly Bensimon getting arrested for punching her boyfriend I was prepared to go off on her. I mean we all deservedly went off on Chris Brown and so I thought fair is fair. The problem is that I'm not sure I believe Kelly's boyfriend. Oh, I believe he got hit, but I'm not sure it was by Kelly, or that she did it on purpose.

Am I not believing him because he was hit by a woman, or am I not believing him because he seems like a jerk? I think more of the latter. I mean a woman can maim. Just ask Tampa Bay linebacker Geno Hayes who got stabbed in the head and neck over the weekend by his girlfriend. She not only used a pair of scissors, but also a knife. She deserves to go to jail for a very long time.

The problem with Nicholas Stefanov is that he comes across like a slimy attention whore and so you have to take everything he says with a grain of salt. Her lawyers say she dumped Nicholas and he was upset about it because he wouldn't be getting any more attention. He then made up the entire story so that he could get back at her.

Nicholas for his part says that he and Kelly were arguing about things that couples argue about and she sucker punched him when he wasn't ready for it. He did say she took off her engagement ring first which he appreciated. Ummm. If she took off the ring then how was it a sucker punch? Also, her lawyer says they were never engaged. Whatever. He waited until after it happened to call the cops because she didn't turn herself in for two days. The whole thing just seems fishy so I am going to go ahead and take her side in this one...for now.

Pookie, it's always been there, Rihanna just made it the "cool" thing to talk about these days. :(

I don't think this situation is anywhere near the same class of abuse as Chris Brown/Rihanna.
Even though I don't believe in violence, one punch in one moment of weakness is different than a full-fledged beat-down.

In both cases, the accused parties probably need lessons in anger management. I wouldn't be scared of pissing off Kelly, but I would be terrified of Chris Brown's anger.

Is she right or left handed?? If she took off her engagement ring, then she hit him with her left hand--so she must be left handed, yes?

NOT SO DEAR WATSON!! Observe the picture:


Ms. Bensimon is clearly right handed, as indicated by the picture and the correct positioning of the book.

Now pass me my shoe, I need a smoke.

I never take sides with anyone on a reality show.
