A reality show personality who bills herself as a “trendsetter, entrepreneur, and shoe consultant to the stars” is facing some legal drama following a fracas at a New York nightclub.
Rashidah Ali, who has appeared on “Real Housewives of Atlanta,” has been accused of assaulting bouncer Joseph Wright. The New York Daily News has posted a gruesome photo of the damage to Wright’s face.
His lawyer was quick with a camera-ready quote, telling the Daily News, “We think Ali should be on “The Real Housewives of Rikers Island.”
The lawyer, Paul Edelstein, said his client is suing Ali for $10 million. Here is a link to the story that details the allegations against Ali.
The Daily News said Ali did not respond to their calls seeking comment. The AJC has also contacted Ali seeking comment; we will post her response if we hear back. She hasn’t made any mention of the allegations on her Twitter account, instead posting lighthearted comments like, “Good Morning Tweeties!”
Ali appeared on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” when her boutique, B Chic Shoetique on Piedmont Road, put on a trunk show for the ladies at the Loews Hotel during an episode that aired last year. Of course, that was also the episode where NeNe Leakes and Dwight Eubanks got into a big spat, so you might not recall the shoes as much as the scrapping from that episode.
