LATEST: HAIRSPRAY star Nikki Blonsky's mother has defended her brawl with a reality TV star.
Blonsky and her father were arrested at an airport in Caribbean destination Turks and Caicos Islands last week (30Jul08).
The altercation is alleged to have started in the departure lounge after Blonsky attempted to save five seats for her family - and former America's Top Model contestant Bianca Golden was left with nowhere to sit.
But Blonksy's mother insists her daughter was the victim of an unprovoked attack.
In a video posted on celebrity website TMZ.com, she claims Blonksy was "just sitting there" when she was "punched in the head".
