What a disgusting piece of trash. You get the networks that hire loose canons for reality tv and then tell them to hit someone or throw up on someone or pull a tablecloth and upset the table to bring in tv ratings.Then the tv reality star is too stupid and follows the directors orders and wallops her boyfriend and gets charged.When is this mundane reality tv violence going to run its course,what a joke.What next throw a pitbull in someones face and then tape it to see what happens.

What a pshcho BIT###!!! I oppose domestic violance of ALL type. In our society, it is often the women who is portrayed as the victims. I feel sorry for her baby. SOCIAL SERVICES, INTERVENE! Send her a## to anger management. I comment the gentelman for not retaliating. Run as fast as you get from this pscho and take your baby with you!

Throw her in jail.

Also, while you're at it, let's charge MTV with contributing to the delinquency of minors.
