Convicted Playmate

My Husband Slapped Me

... So I Shot Him

9/9/2011 12:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Playboy Playmate who shot her husband in the chest last year told police she only pulled the trigger AFTER he slapped her in the face ... this according to new court docs obtained by TMZ.

66-year-old Victoria Rathgeb -- who was the 1968 Playmate of the Year under the name Angela Dorian -- spoke with investigators following the shooting ... who claim she never "expressed remorse or regret for her actions."

Officers say Victoria told them she and her husband had gotten into an argument inside their Hollywood apartment ... and after he grabbed his things and started to leave, she grabbed her gun and followed him.

Victoria claimed her husband then slapped her in the face, so she shot him. The victim also spoke to police about the incident, but made no mention of slapping her. He DID say that Victoria had been constantly accusing him of cheating ... and often verbally abused him.

Investigators concluded that Victoria "has a serious and violent anger management problem, and lacks impulse control. This type of behavior cannot be minimized, tolerated or justified."

Victoria pled no contest to attempted voluntary manslaughter earlier this week and was sentenced to 9 years behind bars.

Wait, he slaps you so you shoot him? That is a little extreme. It's eye for an eye not eye for a bullet. And that's why you got arrested. Too bad he got away with hitting her though, did his father not raise him to know you keep your hands off a woman. Then again, i guess he really did not get away with it after all.

Wow this b**ch is crazy and apparently there are a lot of other crazy b**ches out there that think it is fine that she shot the guy. Just based on her behavior she deserved to get slapped. But really he should have just punched her right in the face and threw her out the window.

If some woman came at me with a gun i`d knock her teeth, he was pretty stupid to just slap her.
