Gloria Allred -- Don't Prosecute the 'Bachelor' Chick!

1/4/2011 3:02 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Gloria Allred just told TMZ ... she doesn't believe the woman who slapped "Bachelor" Brad Womack should be prosecuted for criminal battery.

Gloria says the slap is different from the Amber Portwood case. She says the Amber situation involved "multiple violent and physical fights in the presence of their baby daughter." Gloria calls Chantal O'Brien's slap "an isolated instance" with no significant injuries. 

But how 'bout this ... Mel Gibson is being investigated for a self-admitted isolated slap (though Oksana lost 2 veneers).

As for "The Bachelor," Gloria says, "Sex and violence are often used to sell and promote shows." Gloria calls the slap "a promotional vehicle."

While Gloria may be obsessed with getting attention, she is actually right about this. A slap as part of a TV show like that is nothing. But in the other case it was clearly an assault. Even Mel's case might be assault because of the cir***stances surrounding it.

If he had slapped her; everyone would be up in arms about this. I say slap her with a few hours of jail time; the stupid tramp

Reach much? There is a clear difference between knocking some ones teeth out (Mel Gibson), punching some one repeatedly in the head in front of your infant child (Teen Mom Amber), and the Bachelor slap which was clearly staged.

If it is never okay for a man to hit a woman then it is never okay for a woman to hit a man. I was raised with older brothers and my my told me if I hit them then they had a right to hit me back.

So, if this guy slapped the girl and it was advertised as much as this slap has been on ABC, Gloria wouldn't be representing her? Give me a break.

Gloria is just ridiculous. Does she even listen to what she says? Had this guy done the same thing for "promotion" and slapped the bachelorete , he would be going to court.

What a hypocrite, if it had been the other way around, and if the bachelor slapped a woman, she'd be all over it.
