Marcel attacked with bottle in Las Vegas

Scary. It was on the Bravo video clip of Sam and Chef Collichio--apparently 2 female fans attacked Marcel "Mr. Whippy-Head" in a lobby in Las Vegas. He needed stitches on his face. Horrifying. Whatever impolitic things he does or says, he doesn't deserve to be attacked!

    There is also a cadre of female admirers who are in love with Marcel, posting on the Bravo blog site.

      It was in the Tao nightclub in Vegas, and they weren't admirers. It was a drunk woman who said a few choice words to Marcel, then when he ignored her and turned his back, she beaned him over the head with a wine bottle. He was taken to the hospital and she was arrested.

        What a moronic thing to do. I hope this goes on her permanent record and affects her job prospects forever. Poor Marcel!!

        That's a shame that Marcel was attacked.
        It's only a TV show! I hope the lady spends some time in the clink.
