America's Next Top Model contestant Bianca Golden is opening up about her July airport brawl with
Nikki Blonsky that resulted in various assault charges and a hospitalization for her mother.
Golden shared on the Oct. 8 episode of The Tyra Banks Show that her family was visiting her "dying" grandfather in Turks and Caicos, Us Weekly reports. At the airport seating area, Blonsky became "very rude to my aunt," telling her "'You can leave. You can go away,'" Golden said.
An argument erupted when Golden came to her aunt's defense, and when the model's mother, Elaine, tried to break the fight, Blonsky's father, Carl, "punched my mom," Golden recalled.
"He knocked her out. He hit my mom with such force she stumbled back, and when she stumbled back, the whole family got up and attacked my mom," she said, adding that Nikki kicked Elaine in the crotch.
"That's when my mom fell... completely," Golden said. "Both the families were arguing. It was like a scene out of a movie. Airport security finally came and separated everybody."
Elaine suffered a broken nose, fractured skull and internal bleeding, and is currently in therapy.
Golden, Nikki and Carl were all arrested on assault and bodily harm charges, with the elder Blonsky facing the most serious ones. Father and daughter are due in court Dec. 1. - Joyce Eng
