Project Runway Finalist Charged for Assault With a Deadly Kitty

Celebuzz / March 18, 2009

You might have thought the most heinous crime in Project Runway history was when Christian Siriano murdered the word “fierce.”

Not so. The Bettie Page-esque Kenley Collins (a finalist on the Bravo show last season) was arrested in Brooklyn yesterday after allegedly throwing a cat at her sleeping ex-fiancé, reports TMZ.

Collins was the outspoken contestant with a 1950s flair that polarized fans of the show with her mocking attitude toward other contestants and shrill laughter.

She also is said to have thrown a laptop, several apples and water on her ex during yesterday’s alleged freak-out.

Collins was charged with 2nd degree assault, 3rd degree assault and criminal possession of a weapon in the 4th degree, and is currently in jail.

Legal papers claim that Collins told the victim, “You’re lucky … it could’ve been a lot worse.”

Was she originally considering throwing a dog?
