A mother can’t hear any bad things about their child, we should never poke a mother.
Actress Evelina Bledans slapped a woman from the audience member on live TV for criticising her and her son who has down syndrome.
Evelina, 49, was invited on a popular chat show in Russia, to discuss having a baby later in life, as the actress is pregnant with her third child at nearly 50 years old.
The pregnancy was achieved with vitro fertilization (IVF) and it was a dream for Evelina as she hopes for a daughter. However, the positive chat quickly turned heated when an audience member shared her opinion and said some bitter words to the actress for getting IVF at her age, but it got real nasty when she brought her son into it.
“Do you want to give birth to another sick child?
“Will you give birth to another child with Down’s syndrome? Nobody needs such a child, not society and not you.”
Evelina tries to control but looked stressed, while one of the guests tries to avoid the tension by telling Elena to leave the studio.
At this point, the actress stands up and calmly walks towards the woman before administering a slap while shouting: “You wretch, I will smack you! This is for my child, understand?
“You can say anything about me, but leave my children alone!”
As Evelina walks back to the stage, the woman tries to sort herself out with a smirk on her face.
It’s pretty shocking that there’s no security team on hand to stop Evelina, the woman’s comments were evil and totally uncalled for, sure. But just imagine this had gone down on The Jeremy Kyle Show? There’d be four burly men pulling those women apart while Graham had a meltdown in the corner at the first inkling of violence. Guess things roll differently on Live.
Ms. Bledan’s youngest son Semyon, who she shares with TV producer Alexander Semin, was born in 2012 and has Down syndrome. Ms. Bledan and Semin divorced last year and she is now expecting a girl after undergoing IVF treatment.
Her eldest son Nikolay, 24, currently lives in Israel.
