Paz de la Huerta was arrested for being a drunken, violent mess


The poster girl for sobriety and class was arrested last night. Beloved wackadoodle Paz de la Huerta, currently starring in Boardwalk Empire, was arrested for… assault, I guess. She threw a glass at some chick at The Standard Hotel in NYC. Oh, Paz also punched the chick in the face. The chick was a friend of Lindsay Lohan’s, and Lindsay was a witness to the incident, if you can believe that. Anyway, it basically went down like your standard-issue drunken bar fight:

“Boardwalk Empire” star Paz de la Huerta was arrested last night after she allegedly threw a glass at former “City” star Samantha Swetra at an NYC party on Sunday … and then socked her in the face.

Sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ, it all went down at The Standard hotel — after Paz and Samantha got into it over Samantha’s male friend … we’re told Paz was hitting on him and Sam got defensive.

Eyewitnesses tell us de la Huerta put the de la hurt-a on Swetra at the Top of the Standard nightclub after the model – who was a cast member of MTV’s “The City” – made a joke about the “Boardwalk Empire” actress’ sobriety.

One insider says de la Huerta, who plays Nucky Thompson’s hot-tempered girlfriend Lucy Danziger in the HBO series, approached Swetra’s table “after 3 a.m.” where she was with a group of friends that included Lindsay Lohan (who was staying at the hotel that night).

Swetra and de la Huerta had not met before Sunday, a second source tells us, but that didn’t stop the NYC-born actress from flirting with one of Swetra’s male pals. That’s when, our first source adds, de la Huerta suddenly lost her footing and went crashing into an adjacent table.

After taking in the unexpected pratfall – which, our source adds, resulted in one of de la Huerta’s breasts “hanging out of her dress”- an amused Swetra yelled out “triple axel!”
The gibe sent de la Huerta into a rage and she threw a drink glass at Swetra’s leg and took a swing at the model’s face, the source says.

De la Huerta’s aim is apparently as good as her acting on “Boardwalk Empire.” According to our source, the actress’ fist connected squarely with Swetra’s lips and nose.

The glass, which shattered, also did some damage. “Blood was dripping down [Swetra's] leg,” the source tells us. “Lindsay was pulling shards of glass off of it.”

The source tells us de la Huerta was escorted out of the Meatpacking District club “by the arm” following the incident.

Swetra and Lohan, both looking “horrified,” soon followed, presumably to return to LiLo’s room in a separate part of the hotel.

Things have been looking darker for Swetra since her encounter with Paz de la Horror – literally.

Sources who saw the 26-year-old former Bergdorf Goodman buyer at an event at Kenneth Cole Productions on W. 50th St. say Swetra has facial bruises and a swollen lip

Samantha filed a police report this morning with her attorney Stephanie Ovadia (Seen Above).

Paz received a desk appearance ticket and is due back in court on April 18.

Hearing that Lindsay Lohan was friends with the girl who got her ass handed to her makes me think that there’s something more to this tale. But for now, I’ll take this story at face value. Paz was wasted and falling all over the place, and trying to seduce one of the dudes with Samantha and Lindsay (probably one of Lindsay’s paying customers). Worried that they would lose one of their johns to a girl who gives it away for free, Samantha said something bitchy, and Paz responded with a glass and her fist. Well, that’ll show those girls. Don’t say nasty things to a drunk girl with no inhibitions or moral center, because she will mess your junk up.

    That’s because she IS a “drunken violent mess”. And in the home page pic that I first clicked on I thought she had a fake satche before I realized that was her upper lip with some crap brown shade of lipstick on it.

  2. Delta Juliet says:

    I hope she is r-e-a-l-l-y talented because she is FUG as hell.

  3. Kayleigh says:

    Can I see a shot of her not plastered?

    and @Delta: No, not really. She plays a drunk on the show, unless you consider acting to act drunk as talent.

  4. InVain says:

    I cannot get over how ridiculous (in a good way) this woman is…

  5. lola lola3 says:


  6. gee says:

    She used to be so pretty. It’s a shame what alcoholism can do to you.

  7. KJ says:

    I absolutely love this bitch. She’s utterly insane. If you haven’t yet and are curious about her, I think it was the New Yorker that ran an article/interview with her, and happened to be written by an old boyfriend of hers. It’s magic. Absolute magic. I love that she fell into a table, had her tit fall out of her dress, and then assaulted someone. That takes some effort. Losing your balance but managing to see clearly enough to deck someone square in the face. Awesome.

  8. brin says:

    When crack worlds collide….Paz & Lilo in the same crack den.

  9. Rita says:

    I believe the literal translation of Paz De La Huerta is Peace Of The Orchard but she doesn’t hold her cider very well….Pieza De La Muy Feo Culata (Piece of the very ugly ass).

  10. Lady D says:

    Lilo is going to trial, TMZ is now reporting. Excellent news!

  11. Jackson says:

    I’m not joking, but was she born a woman? She looks like she’s had re-assignment surgery.

  12. mary jones says:

    If that chick is a friend of Lohan she probably deserved to be decked.

  13. Cat says:

    I just don’t get it. Not a single photo have I seen has made me think she could be remotely attractive.

  14. Cari says:

    …and when you get a spray tan, it is important to lift your arms. Just sayin’.

  15. silken_floss says:

    Spaz, honey some eye makeup will not kill you. Try it girl

  16. YAY says:

    I love IT and I love HER!

  17. Praise St. Angie! says:

    if that girl REALLY said “triple axel!”, that’s brilliant.

    the reason she gets work? she willing to do full frontal, at the drop of a hat.

  18. S says:

    I totally see her as some weird variation of Jennifer Garner – like, if Jennifer Garner were latin and drunk.

    Also, it’s funny that Lilo hangs out with reality show people right??

  19. eggy weggs says:

    This makes me like her. I don’t think she’s a pretty girl, she’s probably not very talented, but if she’ll deck a bitch like that, I kinda want to party with her. And be on her side.

  20. Swan Jaco says:

    You mean that isn’t a tranny? Oh….I see.

  21. the original bellaluna says:

    Her face looks like a youngish male blend of Liv & Steven Tyler. NOT a good look.

    I wish, wish, wish (on every falling star) that she’d actually punched Blohan in the face – even if it meant she missed her intended target. No one deserves a drunken beat-down more!

    And I actually kinda like that she’s not one of these scary-skinny actresses and she’s still willing to bare her (slightly droopy) kiester on TV. LOVE IT!

  22. Lukie says:

    There is a picture of her looking so pretty up at the empire state building. No makeup. Hair free. Sober…

  23. Anti-icon says:

    I think we’ve found our new female Keifer Southerland……this little lady has been photographed in numerous states of disarray and dishevelment. And yet, people love Boardwalk Empire. So lets be evan handed. If she can conduct herself like a professional at work; if HBO insures her; she deserves a good legal defense.

    I heart Lush Paz — even though I don’t know her; and have never seen her “work.”

  24. dread pirate cuervo says:

    I think she should be arrested for not properly securing her funbags. Like, ever. Also, I believe every word of this especially the part where Kaiser assumes Linsday & her Z-list friend are prostitution whores.

  25. curmudgeon says:

    Who the hell is this tranny? I have only ever seen her here. The pic of her in the black dress is the first time i’ve ever seen her look less than fourty years old. Still trashy though.

  26. lucy2 says:

    Lady Keifer! Good idea, Anti-icon.
    This story is just awesome. I agree, bella, the only thing that would have made it better was her hitting Linnocent instead.

    Anyone else picture Lindsay screaming and dropping to the floor…in an attempt to scrounge up whatever was in the glass?

  27. the original bellaluna says:

    And if they can arrest her for drink-throwing, why hasn’t that repeat offender Blohan been arrested for it? (Not defending her, just hate the double standard.)

  28. Ari says:

    I still have no idea who this chick is and she is rough! I like her skin though its really smooth looking.

  29. kg says:

    more power to her

  30. Deven says:

    This hideously unattractive woman deserves to go back where she came from and not ugly up the country around here. I have no clue who she is and could have lived successfully without ever knowing. She and several others belong on a trash heap.

  31. Johnny Depp's Girl says:

    Thats a NYC girl beating a$$ on a LA girl.

    Funny as hell.

  32. Liana says:

    pretty accurate account. Only Lohan was also doing HER share of hitting on people’s significant others earlier. AND she was telling her friend to “sue, sue sue.”

  33. Mia says:

    She’s the very definition of hot mess.

  34. Snazzy says:

    What’s up with the indent between her arm pit and breast in the 3rd pic? DOES NOT look normal…

  35. xxodettexx says:

    maybe she was aiming for lilo? [for ALL OF US]


  36. TT says:

    She’s SUBLIME! I love me a good, hot mess!

  37. Bunny says:

    Man, she is sketchy. She needs a good scrub and a makeup artist. She does have beautiful skin.

  38. Bodhi says:

    @ snazzy – She has had several surgeries for tumor (or something) that keeps growing there. I think that it might be connected to the lymph nodes, but I don’t remember for sure.

    She looked a MILLION times better before she got those horrible lip implants!

  39. Trillion says:

    Courtney Love better come out with some crazy shizz lest Paz makes us all forget she existed.

  40. Trillion says:

    PS I kinda hafta love Paz a bit b/c she was so excellent in Enter The Void, which I was fascinated by.

  41. Heavenbound says:

    I have seen pictures of this woman and she actually is pretty. The reason she looks so hideous is because she has tons of foundation, no blush, no eye makeup, no curled eyelashes and sans mascara. Top that with a thousand coats of some hideous looking matt lipstick and who knows how many pints of liquor and some recreational drugs, and Voila! This is the end result.

  42. REALIST says:

    I still have no idea who she is but from posts, but this woman is obviously a piece of work!

  43. Kim says:

    She is an alcoholic nut with no class. Remember after the Golden Globes she couldnt even walk she was so wasted. Swerta absolutely needs to press charges. This mess needs anger mgmt and alcohol rehab!

  44. sapphire says:

    Word is she and Linnocent have something else in common-a taste for narcotics.

  45. moon says:

    who is this woman, I have only seen photo’s of her here on this site. I don’t watch t.v.(don’t like to waste time on such “caca”)haven’t even looked at this site’s “caca” for very long time. Seems to me that there are no-longer “stars” just trash, so sad to see the real class acts dying out. What will we do without real talent, America is overpopulated with the likes of Lohan & Kardashian etc trash, and sites like this only cover the trash which unfortunately leads these losers into believing that they’re interesting.

  46. gemmaa says:

    Kapow! Love it. Bit of old school slap down. Go Paz……

  47. cindy says:

    There is something really weird about her face. On tmz their picture I had to read the caption to make sure it wasn’t a transvestite. What is up with her lip

  48. Confuzzle says:

    I’d love to see her hook up with Lilo. Endless laughs then! :D

  49. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    Maybe Paz and Lilo were arguing about who looks closer to 50 and lilo’s friend voted for lilo, which sent Paz into a violent rage?

    @Rita, you were close love. ;) Pedazo de culo feo.

  50. Faye says:

    Who is this and what does she do other than get drunk and do weird things?

  51. sw says:

    She is FUGLY

  52. Rita says:


    Muy bien!!! LOL

  53. Whitey Fisk says:

    KJ thanks for the tip, I’m going to google that article.

    I’ve never seen her other than the pictures here so perhaps I’m getting a skewed view, but is there a serious problem with her hairline? From the eyebrows up, she looks like George Costanza (with bangs.)

  54. MorticiansDoItDeader says:

    @Rita, you’re one of the most consistently brilliant commenters on here. Wish I could bring the funny like you!

  55. pumpkindoc says:

    Kaiser, this is my favorite article you have ever written. So witty and hilarious. Kudos!

  56. Sumodo1 says:

    There was some Star Trek creature called “The Horta,” right? I call her that, because Paz (pronounced “Path” in Castilian Spanish, apparently) looks like that turd-like critter.

  57. Jilly Bean says:

    She is golden!

  58. RHONYC says:

    she needs a punch in her f*cking ugly mouth. :-(

  59. ordinarygirl86 says:

    If only Paz was given a few more minutes before the fight was broken up…I’m almost positive she would’ve beat the bricks off of Lindsay just for being there! “Until we meet again Linnocent…!!!”

  60. maria says:

    this girl is rude, combative and would argue with a brick wall she is so dumb I had the great displeasure of working with her on a film worst two days of my life she was a miserable little brat

  61. gobo says:

    I kinda love her.

  62. Liana says:

    @maria: I worked a few days on Boardwalk Empire, but it wasn’t on days she was scheduled to be there. Heard she was kind of… unpredictable on set.

  63. bitca says:

    Just pray she doesn’t drive. At this rate, come 2012 she may be in “Paz de la… Huh?” Land, & trying to get stagger-on roles in Roberto Rodriguez cheez-whiz movies.

  64. wunderkindt says:

    Spaz cut a b!tch and punch her in the face. You have to admire tranny spunk!

  65. Crash2GO2 says:

    I agree with other posters who have said that she is actually quite pretty when she doesn’t slather on the dark lipstick. It’s refreshing to see an actress who can go barefaced. Wish she would do it more often. At the rate she is going though, her looks are gonna fade fast.

  66. Chris says:

    I can see her inner bag lady starting to surface.

  67. I do agree with all of the concepts you have offered to your post. They’re very convincing and will definitely work. Still, the posts are very quick for starters. May just you please extend them a bit from subsequent time? Thanks for the post.
