Reality TV star arrested for attacking ex with laptop

"Project Runway" finalist Kenley Collins is arrested for allegedly assaulting her ex-boyfriend. She first threw a cat. When that didn't work, she allegedly threw his laptop at him.

Welcome to "Reality TV meets Tech In A Nasty Head-On Collision Week."

After the hard-shoe conspiracy shuffle danced by Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak this week, I now bring you Kenley Collins, a finalist in season 5 of "Project Runway."

Kenley was arrested early Tuesday morning after allegedly assaulting her ex-fiance with, among other things, a laptop.

You will all collectively breathe again when I tell you that the laptop was not, apparently, her first weapon of choice. No, that was the cat.

She allegedly threw poor Tiddles (yes, name made up by me) in her ex's face. He covered himself with a blanket. So what would pierce the blanket's hardy defenses? Yes, the trusty laptop.

This is not Kenley's cat. But can you imagine throwing either of these little cuties? CC Amb Haims

This, allegedly, was tossed shortly after she had closed the bedroom door on his head. It was followed by apples and water.

Ms. Collins, who was not one of the most popular contestants on the show, was arraigned for "assault, menacing, harassment and criminal possession of a weapon." Was the weapon the cat? Or the laptop?

Please believe me, I have tried to find out what brand of laptop it was and whether it has received appropriate care since the incident. I have failed.

May I ask if any of you has ever been assaulted by a laptop-tossing lover?
