‘Blood, Sweat and Heels’ Star Geneva Thomas Pleads Guilty to Assaulting Melyssa Ford & Avoids Jail Time

Blood, Sweat and Heels Geneva Thomas

Geneva Thomas, star of “Blood, Sweat and Heels” has pled guilty to smashing co-star, Melyssa Ford in the head with a vodka bottle during a fight at a New York City nightclub. The vicious assault occurred while filming the Bravo reality show.

Geneva was quickly arrested and charged with felony assault and criminal possession of a weapon. A bloodied Ford was rushed to the hospital where she received 17 staples to close the serious wound to her head.

Last week, Geneva Thomas pled guilty to third degree assault and received 10 days of community service for the incident. Shockingly, Geneva received a light sentence considering the violent nature of the assault and the injuries Ford sustained. The judge also ordered Geneva to stay out of trouble for a year and keep her distance from Melyssa unless they’re filming together for “Blood, Sweat and Heels.”

Thomas goes back to court in July to face more criminal charges  — theft charges for refusing to pay a NYC taxi a $17.00 cab fare. Thomas discussed the aftermath of the taxi fare theft — claiming she was racially profiled by NYC cops.

    This girl is an animal. I never bought her persona on BSAH either.

  • No surprise here. I coined she was a thug from season one. This girl has the biggest chip on her shoulder. Hopefully with all the arrest and mistakes she’ll reflect on her poor behavior and change her life.

      She would have been facked if the second arrest was for assault too. It would have been considered habitual. She got issues.

      • Yep and I agree with other comment, she definitely needs anger management.

        • RonnieIsBack

          And a good makeup artist.

          • Not even good make-up can help this chick.

  • WaWaWaWHAT!

    10 days of community service THAT’S IT!!! I would sue the shit out of this ugly bitch!!! She really thinks she’s above the law!! What a POS she it!!

    • Hahaha! Right on WaWa!

    • Bad Barbie

      That’s what usually that charge gives for someone without a record. It is not even a “felony” it is an A misdemeanor.

  • Despicable!!! I wanted to give her the benefit of the doubt, but she is just as ugly inside as outside.

  • Gump’s Mom

    What a loose cannon she is. That makes twice in two weeks we’ve heard of her getting arrested. She should be kicked off the show.

  • Bad Barbie

    Hmm interesting…. assault in the third – so there was no “weapon” and only minor injuries. Big difference from those first charges of second degree assault and possession of a weapon. Didn’t I tell ya that in the footage there is no bottle thrown?

    I am surprised she wasn’t sent to anger management too.

    Melissa is also being ridiculous giving interviews that Geneva should have been sentenced to 7yrs. SMH.

    • RonnieIsBack

      Well she used something. How do you crack upon somone’s head that require 17 staples…maybe she hit her head on something else….yeah like the vodka bottle…IJS
      I believe Too Wong Foo is living foul…she is from the D and at times we fight dirty…trust.

      • HAHAHAHA! Preach, Ronnie!

      • Soncie22

        She said Melyssa threw a wine glass and she threw an ice bucket.

    • KateRecommends

      They lowered the charges because she did not have a prior criminal record. She did hit Melyssa over the head with a bottle.

  • undergroundrailroadtrain

    Damn! Why Wesley Snipes so angry and attacking people?

  • Jennymckitty

    I wonder how this guilty plea is going to effect sentencing on her second set of charges.

  • equinox2009

    17 stitches in the head and she got community service? Where is the justice. AND she was arrested for not paying a taxi, screaming racially profiled. Seems she is a bit angry to me. Hope she is in therapy. I don’t think this is her last arrest, just saying

    • Amen!

    • misstc

      Interesting to see if she ever had other charges in her past before BSH.

    • Soncie22

      But..but I heard Arza say Melyssa only got 3-stitches in the head. Where did the other 14 come from?

      • equinox2009

        Yes, I heard 3 stitches on the episode but read 17? Have a happy day!

  • RonnieIsBack

    Too Wong Foo Noxema was lucky….

    • Rochelle Barozzi

      Snicker!!! You are right!

  • Norrth

    WTH?!?!? Wasn’t she suing Ford for defamation? It’s terrible that she did something so hurtful to another person. Who does something like that? I’m glad Ford is ok, but NO WAY would I continue with Thomas after that. Melyssa needs to put her foot down and refuse to film with her. (Aren’t you glad I didn’t say “put her heel down”?)

    To think… last season Geneva and Demetria tried to pretend an inebriated Mica was a threat and dangerous. She was out of control because of her father’s death, not because she was a criminal. Cracking someone in the head with a bottle is MUCH scarier than anything Mica has ever done.

  • kEsha Ann

    I’m sorry but was anybody watching the same episode that I was? Melyssa was not as big of a victim as she was playing.

    • Soncie22

      Agreed! One thing I can say for Melyssa–aside from being a messy a**kisser is she’s determined..She made her mission in life to have Geneva uninvited from Demetria’s wedding..And what was up with both Melyssa and Arzohole double teaming Geneva; were they that intimidated?
