Maybe the wives of sports players have banded together and they aren't taking ***** anymore. Whether it be abuse or infidelity.

Not funny, but as always this is probably only half the story.

...or the player says "honey, you can't run up the credit cards like that because they lock out is coming and rumor is it could last the whole season."

Anyone else remember when the Colts CB Harper was stabbed in the knee like a day or two before the playoff game against the Steelers. Who knows maybe if he wasn't stabbed in the knee he takes the fumble back for a TD, and the Colts go on to win the SB instead of the Steelers.

Don't see what difference that makes. Just my opinion, but I think if you get mad enough to try to stab someone, you're really not thinking of the consequences. You're not really thinking at all, you're reacting.

Could be he's being technical too. I don't think of a box-cutter as something to stab with, more to slice. She probably sliced him.

I got the story from a major publication to begin with but I agree she obviously wasn't thinking that's how the cycle of domestic violence begins kids see it happen between their parents then they do the same when they're older...

Print GRAND BLANC TOWNSHIP, Michigan — Kenya Bell, former Miss Michigan USA and wife of basketball star Charlie Bell, released a statement today through her lawyers addressing domestic violence charges filed against her this week.



View full size(Genesee County Sheriff)Kenya Bell
Kenya Bell is accused of attacking the Golden State Warriors guard with a box cutter on Sunday in his Grand Blanc Township home, according to the Genesee County Prosecutor's Office.

She released the following statement through lawyers Jeremy Piper and Matthew Norwood:

"It is with regret that I have to issue a public statement regarding my marriage. For some time now my husband and I have been going through the process of getting a divorce. Like many couples, our relationship has deteriorated over time. Throughout this process I have always considered the interests of our children to be front and center. Unfortunately this private matter has spilled from one court to another, where I expect to be vindicated. For my family's sake I would ask that our privacy be respected. Thank-you, Kenya Bell"

Norwood said Kenya Bell is denying the incident occurred as portrayed in reports on the charges.

"She's looking forward to vindicating herself," he said. "It's sad. If anybody knows Mrs. Bell, they know that this isn't who she is...

"It's not the way it's been portrayed."

Kenya Bell was arraigned in Genesee District Court on Monday on charges of assault with a dangerous weapon and domestic violence, according to court records. She was released on $5,000 bond.

Charlie Bell, a Flint native and former Michigan State University basketball star, on Tuesday commented via Twitter: "I'm fine. I didn't get stabbed. LOL."

The Flint Southwestern Academy graduate, along with fellow "Flintstones" Mateen
Cleaves of Flint Northern and Morris Peterson of Flint Northwestern led the 2000 Spartans team that captured the school's first national basketball championship since 1979.

Kenya Bell, 35, was crowned Miss Michigan USA in 2001.

The couple was featured on the E! Network TV program Basketball Wives in 2010.

Kenya Bell said at the time that she and her husband worked hard to build “family respect and trust for each other.”

Is it just me, or in that picture I see a lot of similarity with Ronron in and little photo-shopping here and there the logo in the back is the pacers one? Am glad to say though:

No current or former Pacers players were involved in this incident :D

He was probably cheating on her... isn't that why most of these guys are attacked by females? i.e. Steve Mcnair

Steve got shot by his mistress not his wife.

Steve got shot by his mistress not his wife.

Sure, but that doesn't make his statement inaccurate. He was probably dumping her and told her he was going back to his wife. Cheating has its consequences.
