LATEST: HAIRSPRAY actress Nikki Blonsky has hit back at model BIANCA GOLDEN's account of the pair's Caribbean airport brawl - accusing the reality TV star of lying.
Golden, Blonsky and her father Carl Blonsky were all detained in the Turks and Caicos Islands in July (08) after a fight broke out in the holiday destination's airport lounge.
The America's Next Top Model contestant told talk show host Tyra Banks this month (Oct08) that Carl Blonsky "punched" her mum before his daughter joined in the attack. She claimed Blonsky started the confrontation by being rude to her, and accuses the family of yelling "they got rabies" at the Goldens after the fight broke out.
But Blonsky insists the Goldens were the instigators.
She tells People magazine that the model's brother George tripped up a passenger who had been trying to save seats.
She says, "He looked at me and said, 'What the f**k are you looking at you fat white b**ch?"
Blonsky claims Golden then stepped into the fight and punched her in the head.
And she is furious about the model's claims her mother was attacked, adding, "Absolute lies. I never kicked her mother. My father never hit anybody. (And) we never said anything about rabies. Its disrespectful that somebody would say that I'm racist."
Blonsky adds that her dad has been off work since the incident, and the whole family "are completely destroyed over being accused of something we didn't do. I wake up in severe nightmares, swearing, saying, 'Please stop hitting me.'"
A hearing is set for 1 December (08) in the Turks and Caicos Islands.
