Bianca Golden: Nikki Blonsky kicked my mom in the crotch when she was down

Nikki Blonsky and her father Eric were involved in an altercation with America’s Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden and her mother Elaine at Turks and Caicos airport in early August. It sounded serious at the time as Elaine was airlifted to an ICU in Miami, and Eric Blonsky was charged with grievous bodily harm. No details of the assault were released except that Elaine was treated for temporary paralysis of her left side. The attack was obviously quite vicious, and here are some details that Bianca Golden shares on The Tyra Banks Show. Bianca says Nikki even kicked her mother in the crotch when was laying on the ground after a blow to the face from Eric Blonsky.

Golden says on the Oct. 8 episode of The Tyra Banks Show that her family was at the Turks & Caicos airport on July 29 returning from a family reunion for her dying grandfather when Nikki Blonksy became “very rude to my aunt.”

An argument erupted between Blonsky’s and Golden’s families, then Blonsky’s father Carl “punched my mom.”

“He knocked her out,” says Golden. “He hit my mom with such force she stumbled back and when she stumbled back the whole family got up and attacked my mom.”

Then, when her mother was on the ground, Nikki “takes her foot and kicks my mom in her vagina, and that’s when my mom fell out completely,” says Golden.

“When Nikki kicked my mom I went and grabbed her arm and she grabbed my earring,” says she. “Her mom sat on her to get her off of me cause her mom saw what was happening and that was that.”

Golden says her mother was airlifted to the hospital with internal bleeding, a broken nose and a fractured skull.

“Her face is still black and blue,” she says.


This is only one person’s version of events, but I still can’t believe that anyone in their right mind would attack someone so violently when they don’t even know them. I know travelling can make people cranky, but who goes on holiday looking for a fight?

I also don’t think much of going on The Tyra Banks Show to talk about it, unless the appearance was scheduled prior to the incident. When something is before the courts, on serious charges, are you actually allowed to talk about it to the media? Doesn’t it influence the jury? Nikki Blonsky’s reps refused to comment as this is a ‘pending legal issue’.

A People report right after the incident says that Nikki was charged with assault with actual bodily harm, which carries a maximum sentence of two years, and common assault, also known as threat of assault, with a 90-day maximum term. Bianca Golden was also charged with assault with actual bodily harm.

Her father Carl was charged with grevious bodily harm, which has a possible sentence of five years.

Note – an earlier image had a photo of Marissa Jaret Winokur that was incorrectly labeled by the agency as being of Blonsky. This has since been replaced and we are sorry for the confusion.

    I’ve heard that Bianca & her mother started it by calling Nikki a b!tch but that is NO EXCUSE for a MAN to hit a WOMAN!! (There is really no excuse to resort to violence at all unless it’s self-defense) And for him punch her in the FACE!!! Is that how the Blonsky family settles their differences? Disgusting!! Nikki & her family come off as savage, gutter-animals. Her father sickens me.

    You might want to change the picture you have up. That is not Nikki Blonsky.

  4. Stacy says:

    That’s Marissa Jaret Winokour or however you spell her name. It’s not Nikki.

  5. Celebitchy says:

    Thanks you guys! I will change it right now. WENN credits that photo as being of Nikki. Our apologies to Winokur.

  7. aleach says:

    regardless of what really happened, its pretty sick that Blonskys dad…
    1.punched a WOMAN anywhere (let alone in the face)
    2. that she actually had a fractured skull, internal bleeding, and a broken nose.
    i think theyre both idiots.
