So, what really happened in the airport????
According to reports, it looks like both parties are probably to blame for the infamous throw down that raged between the families of Hairspray‘s Nikki Blonsky and America’s Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden in a Turks and Caicos airport last Wednesday.
The limited seating at the airport’s departure lounge was the thing that supposedly “sparked it all off.”
The Blonskys allegedly had snapped up several seats in the tiny airport lounge just for their luggage.
WTF? Luggage is meant to be thrown around and on the ground.
The Hairspray family was reportedly asked by a member of the Golden family to place some of their luggage on the ground so someone in their party carrying a child could sit.
This is where it all goes nuts and things get a little cloudy.
The Goldens say that the Blonskys were peeved that their luggage had to be placed on the floor and started spouting racial hatred, referring to blacks as animals and throwing around the N-word.
But, another source claims the racial slurs only began to fly when a member of the Next Top Model group proclaimed, “I don’t want to sit next to any white bitch.”
Nikki Hairspray and Bianca the model exchanged words but not blows, though Nikki allegedly tried to rip Golden’s earring off.
Bianca’s mom, Elaine, then supposedly jumped into the mix to “defuse the situation” and to get her daughter “away from those people”.
Nikki’s dad, Carl, got into it too. He supposedly began punching Bianca’s mom in the head!
Whatever happened to the old saying that you DON’T HIT A WOMAN????
Elaine Golden is currently in an intensive care unit with a broken nose and cracked skull.
Meanwhile, Blonsky’s father is being held in a jail cell on the Turks and Caicos. The family is reportedly unable to post $75,000 bail.
Poppa Blonsky faces a potential eight-year prison term and is being held at least until Friday on a charge of “grievous bodily harm.”
Though they didn’t exchange blows, Nikki and Bianca were each charged with “actual bodily harm,” which carries a possible sentence of two years.
Hope the airport will look into more seating in their departure lounge.
We also find it ironic that the Hairspray star was involved in a race related brawl. Sheesh…Hairspray was all about racial harmony!
