Rashidah Ali, Atlanta Housewife Shoe Guru, Claws Bouncer Across the Face
Remember the shoe trunk show at the B Chic Boutique that kicked off Season 3 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta? The one where NeNe got memorably sauced and then got up in Dwight's face about the $10,000 he was alleging Gregg owed him? Thankfully, we saw Dwight and NeNe make up in the season finale, but the brawl was quite the way to kick off the latest season of Real Housewives, and it looks like B Chic Boutique owner and shoe guru to the stars, Rashidah Ali, picked up a few pointers about how it's done in the ATL.
On Tuesday night, Ali was celebrating her birthday in New York City at Greenhouse, an uber trendy club in Soho, when the bouncer, Joseph Wright, tried to eject two of her friends for feeling up a bottle waitress. They put up a fight, so he dragged the two dudes out of the club, and when Ali realized what was happening, she rushed up to Wright and clawed him in the face, leaving an impressive gash from his hairline down to his mouth. We've seen the pictures, and, trust us, this one's going to leave a scar.
Wright was rushed to the hospital, where doctors say he suffered a severed nerve and artery, resulting in surgery and a whopping 50 stitches. He's suing for $10 million in damages, and the gruesome photos are some pretty hard evidence. Says Wright's lawyer, "We think Ali should be on The Real Housewives of Rikers Island."
