Former Playmate of the Year Fears for Her Life

9/1/2009 2:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Dalene Kurtis2002 Playmate of the Year Dalene Kurtis thought taking a vacation to Hawaii with her boyfriend was a great idea ... that is, until he allegedly used her as a punching bag and then threatened to kill her.

Kurtis was granted a temporary restraining order earlier this month against an ex she claims pushed her, punched her and choked her during a recent trip to Hawaii. She claims the ex said he was "gonna kill [her]," "slit [her] throat" and that she was a "f**king whore."

She then claims four days later he choked her until she couldn't breathe, stomped on her stomach, punched her, broke her finger, and spit in her face. That's when she (finally) called the cops and had him arrested.

Kurtis was granted a TRO, which includes her two-year-old son. She's scheduled to be in court later today to try to get the order made permanent.

We've also learned Kurtis recently filed for a substitute of attorney, hiring Ron Rale (Anna Nicole's former attorney in the Howard K. Stern case) from Trope and Trope ... who had "no comment" when we called about Kurtis' case.

All the gold diggers that pose for rags usually end up dead, become prostitutes, or ,D porn actresses, and junkies. The men they attarct are trash.They can only think with their small heads. The silicone makes these women choose the abusive men, they have kids from anyone, and then the child has to watch dear old mom and her lover(s),fight, and do drugs. Is it a wonder Danny OD's at 20 from Anna Nicole. Most of the posers all have the same dead end stories.Low self esteem will do that.

And this story is important why? Who the hell is she? Put a red wig on her and she's a close match to Carrot Top. What an ugly woman, men will look at just about anything!

I will never understand how these beautiful, talented women end up with jealous losers. Men are everywhere and women must learn to pick and choose wisely so they are NOT threatened because they were born beautiul. Ladies....stop settling for less than you deserve! Don't hurry into a relationship because the guy is "cute". Sometimes, cute kills. If necessary, investigate your man. It may one day save your life! Food for thought

....perhaps all the plastic inside of these, for of a better term, ladies? is going to their heads. They all seem to pick out the biggest ace-holes {fake cuss my son uses!} to have as boyfriends. Big surpirise there.

But, one certainly could not accuse these gals of having too many smarts, they pose naked in a magazine for cripes sake, and think they are just something for doing it! Oh, gee, what an honor! I was the Playmate of the entire year!

Now THAT is ambition for ya!

I don't even know who this woman is, but it is amazing how much hate and jealousy (or both) there is on this board and in the world. If someone, male or female, assaulted me in the manner described in the article, I wouldn't be getting a TRO, I'd be plotting something far more interesting for him.
