'Survivor' Star Accused of Battering a Woman

4/28/2010 8:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0428_kenward_bernis_EXThe horrible week for CBS reality stars continues -- TMZ has learned another "Survivor" star has been cited in Louisiana after cops say he battered a woman inside a bar restroom over the weekend.

Kenward "Boo" Bernis -- who competed on "Survivor: Fiji" back in 2007 -- is accused of walking into a ladies restroom at Bootleggers Bar in Lafayette, grabbing a woman by the upper arm and "forcibly move[ing] her."

As we've previously reported, another "Survivor" contestant -- Russell Hantz -- was also arrested in Lafayette on Friday for battering a woman. Hantz also co-owns the Bootleggers Bar where Bernis' alleged incident went down. 

And over on "Big Brother" -- two dudes from Season 9 are in all sorts of trouble for allegedly operating an illegal prescription drug ring.

Attempts to reach Bernis were unsuccessful.

For everyone who is thinking negatively about Boo, I am a female and I know he was probably just doing his job and the girl was probably drunk and disorderly. Don't hate on Boo. He wouldn't hurt a female on purpose. Girls are just evil.

What I find so funny about this report and the one about Russell Hanz is that both of these guys are good friends with Krista, Season 2 of Big Brother. We all know she's nutty as a fruitcake, and she claims to be close friends with these guys. Ha Ha! It figures that they'd both be s***bags!!

I love the terminology here . . . "Survivor Star Accused of Battering a Woman" . . . "Cops say he battered a woman inside a bar restroom over the weekend" . . . Turns out he grabbed a woman's arm and moved her". A wide open description there, it could have been next to nothing physically. Here is the definition of battery from Websters Dictionary "to beat with successive blows as to bruise, ****ter or demolish"

I see nothing wrong at all with hitting a woman if she wants to be treated equal then fine, before you go oh what an ass, look at the de nutting of america the last ten years, oh butt kicking heros are female on tv, all action stars female, women kicking mens butts all over the place on tv, so when someone does it you all act surprised, women are acting like jackass's lately more than ever, they dont want equality they want to be treated better than you and treat you as less then, then bitch when they are not treated like fragile princess's. If she got mouthy do like you would any man and punch her out, and you never call it battery on a man, when its a man, so stop the crap with battery of a woman, battery is battery lets be equal right?

...grabbing an arm and moving someone is not that bad guys. Also, the woman involved in Hantz's case denies that Russell touched her.

HE IS THE ONE WHO FARTED ON THE SHOW.. and they aired it. I will always associate him w/his toots.



anyway, what a s***bag for assaulting a woman. Reality TV sure knows how to pick winners. What about Ryan Jenkins, who murdered and mutilated the body of his wife?

If you even knew Boo you would know that the girl was probably just some underage drunk girl that was trying to pull something. I've known Boo for a while. He's a wonderful guy and as a female I KNOW that he was probably doing his job and protecting his business by trying to get drunk idiots out his bar. Underage girls are to blame. Not Boo. I'm gay and I have no problem saying as a female that Boo is the best guy I know and has stood up for me many times and who ever this girl is, was just looking for attention.

Hold up a minute, how come when Russel battered a woman, people came to his defense?
"The cops hate Russel."
"She had it coming."
"Who hasn't pushed someone?"
"He may have pushed her, but she lost her balance."
"It was a misunderstanding."
"She didn't press charges."
