Blood, Sweat & Heels Star Geneva Thomas Cops To Assaulting Melissa Ford
Blood, Sweat & Heels star Geneva S. Thomas has pled guilty to cracking her co-star Melyssa Ford over the head with a bottle.
Thomas, 31, admitted the attack Thursday in Manhattan Criminal Court, pleading guilty to one count of third degree assault. Judge Lisa Sokoloff sentenced Thomas to 10 days of community service, and she won’t go to jail or face probation as long as she stays out of trouble and away from Ford.
The writer had faced charges of criminal possession of a weapon and felony assault in the second degree.
Thomas was arrested six months ago after she cracked a bottle over Ford’s head on a party boat on the Hudson River. Ford had to get three staples in her head, stiches in her foot and was on crutches for a month.
“When the police came in, they immediately knew Melyssa was the victim,” a source close to Ford told BOSSIP. “They asked who started the fight, and everybody pointed to Geneva.”
The source told BOSSIP the veteran video model still suffers from vertigo from the beat down, and can’t fathom why Thomas isn’t facing jail time.
“She doesn’t understand why this person isn’t going to jail,” the source said. “She could’ve been killed.”
No one from the cast has reached out to Ford after Thomas attacked her, according to the source.
Thomas’ guilty plea may make it hard for her to pursue her $25 million defamation suit against Ford, although BOSSIP found no record of the case in the courts. The source said Ford has never spoken publicly about Thomas since Thomas’ assault.
Thomas told BOSSIP that an earlier case where she was accused of stiffing a cabbie on a $17 fare was dismissed, but court records show she’s due back in court on that case in July.
