'Big Bro' Alum Gets Court Victory ... All By Herself

12/13/2010 10:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

"Big Brother 2" alum Krista Stegall just scored an extra year on her restraining order against ex "Survivor" contestant Kenward "Boo" Bernis -- but the best part ... she did it all without a lawyer.

According to the legal docs filed in Louisiana and obtained by TMZ -- Stegall successfully repped herself in court against Boo -- after she had accused him of beating her up in a bar last year.

Stegall even called Boo to the stand and grilled him on how he allegedly grabbed her arms and shoved her inside the women's bathroom at Bootlegger's bar in Lafayette, LA -- a bar Boo co-owns.

Bernis' lawyer tells TMZ, Boo "intends to comply with the Judge's order and have no further contact with Ms. Stegall moving forward." The protective order expires September 2011.

Good for her! Well done. It takes an epic amount of courage to do what she did. She faced him and pushed through what must have been some pretty scary moments. I honor her for that courage.

Let it go Krista. First of all, Boo didn't beat her up. He had to restrain her drunk-@ss that night. Second of all, I doubt he's sweating having to not be around her. Hell, make it five yeras. He'd love you forever. You've been done Krista. Time to let it go.

You people are out of your mind! Krista was abused by this guy and you are calling her a skank? What is wrong with you? And what is this about an album? She can hardly talk because of the surgeries she has had on her throat. You say that he didn't do it - well, the judge sure thought that he did. Why else would the judge rule against him?

Wow, that is very impressive Krista! You go girl!!!! Fight for your right not to be abused! Just because he was probably mad that you turned him down, doesn't give him the right to put his hands on you. Any guy that does, is a total POS that has no class and is VERY VERY INSECURE! The fact that you went to court without a lawyer to back you up just shows that you had nothing to hide and were confident that you had done nothing wrong. Sounds like "boo" was afraid..as he should have been. Dispicable. Next time, call the cops and press charges....sounds like he wants some jail time.

Krista and Boo are both well known in Lafayette and across Southern Louisiana. And for those of us who know them, we are aware that Krista is a media-whore, and Boo is an extreme *****-cat. Krista is a drama queen and will do anything necessary to get attention and publicity.

People like Krista make me sick, because they're the ones who cry wolf, when there really are women out there who are abused. The sad thing is how Boo ended up with a restraining order against him because he told the truth about having to remove her from the bar physically.

And the fact that she didn't have a lawyer probably just indicates she paid the judge directly instead of a lawyer. I've been to court in Southern Louisiana, and I've seen how corrupt it can be first-hand.
