Paula Broadwell smacks photographer in forehead with car door

David Petraeus’ ex-mistress, Paula Broadwell, left a female news photographer with a bloodied forehead Monday in a confrontation outside the biographer’s North Carolina home.

The 40-year-old West Point grad smacked the photographer with the driver’s side door of her Nissan Pathfinder SUV.

“I had my camera and in all the chaos the door slammed and I got hit in the head with the flash,” said Nell Redmond, a freelancer for the Associated press.

Redmond suffered a small cut on her forehead in the incident, witnessed by a Daily News reporter.

The encounter occurred just before 2 p.m. as Broadwell, wearing sunglasses and a cream-colored turtleneck sweater, tried to avoid reporters and photographers by sneaking out a side door of her house in a ritzy enclave of Charlotte.

AP Reporter vs. Devious Slut

Sometimes it’s *really* hard to take sides in a conflict.

“David Petraeus’ ex-mistress, Paula Broadwell, left a female news photographer with a bloodied forehead Monday”

I can’t find a hero in this sentence?

A celebrity loving media whore strikes a celebrity chasing photographer whore.

“You stick your face where it doesn’t belong and bad things can happen”

I think they are both finding that it in their own way.

No rubber helmets or lobster bibs (like the Clintoon Interns were issued by the HR Office.)

That sounds reversed.

Given Dee Dee Myers's famous bimbo eruption expertise, shouldn't she be the one representing Petraeus?

To be honest here, if someone is blocking my car door, they are holding me against
my will and I would do the same thing. GTF out of the way of the door or get smacked with it, period.

>> I’d pick the slut every time.

Over a journalist, that would normally be a safe call (unless the devious slut WAS a journalist herself, which is sometimes the case).

But Broadwell compromised national security. She loses points for that. LOTS of points.
