You’d expect a bit of drama onstage at an Elton John performance at a gala in Monte Carlo, but would you expect to see a Jersey Shore-style brawl in the audience? Apparently, a French-speaking woman in her 30’s and another in her 70’s showed attendees exactly what a beat down among rich Europeans looks like. And while one description of the fight seems similar to what you’d expect at the Shore (“When Younger Blonde turned around, 70 grabbed her hair and pulled out a gigantic blonde weave.”), it’s clear that girl fights play out very differently on the French riviera.
The unidentified ladies, for one, weren’t sporting shorty-shorts and baby T-shirts. They were wearing ball gowns and dripping in diamonds. And when the requisite drinks were thrown — it was glasses of champagne, not beer out of plastic cups. But the biggest difference between Jersey Shore and Monte Carlo cat fights is probably summed up by a witness who said, “the two ladies slapped and kicked each other while still seated until security came.” So drinks, punches and kicks were thrown — and yet the women remained seated while beating each other down so as not to disrupt Sir Elton belting out “Tiny Dancer” at the piano? It’s Lifestyles of the Bitch and Famous! [Source: New York Post; Photo: Getty Images]
