tribe down to four, minus Ted; Brian’s wife arrested for hitting him.
After winning immunity, Brian Heidik made it to the final four (without Ted) on last night’s Survivor Thailand. After he got home from taping the show, however, that immunity wore off, as he was assaulted by his wife, fellow soft-core porn star Charmaine Heidik (link contains naked pictures). According to The Smoking Gun, she “spent two days in prison before being released on her own recognizance, [because she] allegedly punched her husband in the nose.” She’s apparently “found Brian ‘passed out drunk’ on the living room couch, while the couple’s young son was crying on the floor”; been “ordered to stay at least 100 yards away from” Brian and will go to trial Monday; she “faces a maximum of a year in jail if she’s convicted,” the site reports. It also says Brian “planned to file for divorce.”
