Shire star assaulted in girl fight

WELCOME to reality TV - the dramatic moment two personalities from the show The Shire were caught up in a violent fight involving knives at a Sydney cafe.

Vernesa Toroman and Sophie Kalantzis, the Botox-loving friends from the Channel 10 show, were said to have been caught in a "personal vendetta" before they became involved in a slapping, hair-pulling tussle outside a cafe in Rhodes, western Sydney yesterday.

Toroman, a former retail manager, suffered a black eye and scratches during the lunch attack involving Kalantzis and two other women outside Oliver Brown cafe in Rhodes Shopping Centre.

Some of the footage aired on A Current Affair last night showed an unknown woman threatening Kalantzis with a knife she pulled from her back pocket, before Toroman is seen arming herself with a butter knife from the cafe.

Shoppers watched on, some filming the clash with their smartphones, as the four women pulled each other's hair, threw punches and screamed obscenities.

 

Watch footage of the incident here.
