Farrah Abraham's Celebrity Big Brother champagne assault results in charges
Farrah Abraham's on-screen drama from her stint on the Celebrity Big Brother spinoff Big Brother's Bit on the Side is causing major repercussions across the pond.
Aisleyne Horgan-Wallace is facing assault charges after a row that caused the show to be pulled off the air 15 minutes early. Viewers were treated to hearing Horgan-Wallace call Abraham a “nasty, horrible bitch who should f*** off" back to America," and Abraham responding by calling her a “hag."
Producers pulled the plug on the live broadcast as the fight escalated, and after the fade-to-black, Horgan-Wallace and Abraham reportedly threw champagne glasses at each other. Not to be outdone, castmate Janice Dickinson allegedly threw a chair.
Actress Vicki Michelle was rushed to a local hospital after being injured while caught in the crossfire.
The incident happened just six days after Abraham was kicked off of Celebrity Big Brother.
Abraham and Dickinson both accepted a caution from the police over the incident, but Horgan-Wallace refused to do so, claiming producers had engineered the entire fight. After a five-month investigation, she will be charged with assault due to Abraham's unspecified champagne injuries, plus damage to her dress.
All told, the incident could end up costing U.K. taxpayers a pretty penny — the equivalent of almost $22,000 in court costs and travel expenses. Needless to say, not everyone is happy about that.
"I'm surprised the CPS has progressed. The court is not a place to settle petty squabbles between celebrities," Will Quince, Tory MP for Colchester told The Sun.
Added Jonathan Isaby of the TaxPayers' Alliance, "Taxpayers will be frustrated that so much time and money has been spent on a TV spat."
What's Abraham's reaction to all this? Gloating, obviously.
