Hot "Poker After Dark" Host

VICTIM OF A SMASH AND GRAB

8/7/2011 4:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Marianela Pereyra -- the host of NBC's "Poker After Dark" --felt the burn during a workout session in Hollywood this week ... when someone smashed one of the windows of her car and stole her purse. 

It all went down at the famous L.A. exercise hotspot Runyon Canyon -- where Marianela parked her car and set off on a good ol' fashioned hike. 

But when she finished her workout, Marianela noticed the right rear window of her car had been smashed and her new Michael Kors bag was missing.

The LAPD tells us they are looking into the incident, but stress that people shouldn't leave valuables in plain site when parking their car. Even hot chicks.

Sounds like her car just got broken into. Don't know how that's a smash and grab but, hey, it's TMZ amirite?

A smash and grab raid or smash and grab attack (or simply a smash and grab) is a particular form of burglary. The distinctive characteristic of a smash and grab, that distinguishes it from other forms of burglary, is its elements of speed and surprise. A smash and grab involves smashing a barrier, usually a display window in a shop or a showcase, grabbing valuables, and then making a quick getaway, without concern for setting off alarms or creating noise. A failed smash and grab raid is indistinguishable from simple vandalism, or malicious damage.

"In plain site"? Maybe she should have parked on a hill then?

Eh... dunno how this is a story. A woman gets a purse stolen out of her car while she's in the gym? Serves her right for leaving it in the car. Doesn't she know people don't have jobs? Times are tough. People are desperate. She should've kept that purse out of sight.

I think Marianela needs to be punished for leaving her purse in her car. I'm thinking a spanking.

She looks a bit like a certain golden-shower-enthusiastic pornstar / reality TV personality in that picture.
