Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler

Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler, what a wonderful example of how the other half live, eh?

To set the scene. Swanson and Eisler met when they were both on a show called "Skating with Celebrities". Eisler was married but separated, his wife four months pregnant with their second child.

It might only feature minor celebrities rather than world class Olympic athletes, however Fox's
Skating With Celebrities reality series has ended up with a skating scandal of its own, with the then-pregnant wife of Lloyd Eisler, the professional skating partner of Skating finalist Kristy Swanson, blaming an affair between the skating pair for breaking up her marriage. 

The pre-taped Fox reality show, which ironically began with show judge Dorothy Hamell criticizing the pair for not "having more of a connection" after a
Skating With Celebrities premiere episode performance that left Kristy and Lloyd in last place, was filmed last year. 

"I was shocked, upset and betrayed," Marcie Eisler, Lloyd's 31-year-old wife, told
Star magazine about her husband's relationship with the 36-year-old former Buffy The Vampire Slayer movie star. "I should have trusted my instincts."

Isn't this just the most delightful little detail?

But according to the Star, Marcie began to suspect that the her husband was having an affair with Kristy when she flew out to Los Angeles to visit him while the show was taping. Kristy reportedly made sure that Lloyd's wife knew the truth by late October, when she forwarded Marcie a "steamy e-mail" that Lloyd had sent Kristy. "It basically talked about how much he loved her," a source told Star.

Let us move the story on a few months:

Lloyd Eisler and his amazing sperm strike again. Nine months after the former Olympic figure skater's ex-wife gave birth to the former couple's second child, Eisler and his former Skating With Celebrities

According to the couple -- who had previously denied rumors that they were expecting -- Swanson is due around Valentine's Day. "We wanted to wait until I completed the first trimester to officially announce our pregnancy," Swanson told  partner and current girlfriend Kristy Swanson have announced that they are expecting their first child.
People in a statement released by Cheryl Kagan, the couple's publicist. "Lloyd and I are thrilled and wanted to share the wonderful news."

The first will be Swanson's first and Eisler's third. In addition to his 8-month-old son Seth, Eisler also has a 2-year-old son, Ethan, from his three-year marriage to Marcie O'Brien.

I guess it's one way for Eisler to win the Darwinian race. So, that last baby should have appeared in February this year. The reason for the headlines today is that Kristy Swanson was arrested over the wekend for attacking the ex-wife, Marcia O'Brien.

"Skating with Celebrities" star Kristy Swanson was arrested last night for allegedly assaulting the ex-wife of her current boyfriend and "Skating" partner Lloyd Eisler. People magazine reports that Swanson claims she was attacked by Eisler's ex Marcia O'Brien, though no charges have been filed against O'Brien.

Note, no charges have been filed against O'Brien...well, that's not quite true, they have, but by Swanson:

Kristy Swanson pressed assault charges Sunday against the ex-wife of her companion and former "Skating With Celebrities" partner, Lloyd Eisler, the actress' representative said.

Police took pictures of bruises on her back and other parts of her body to document injuries Swanson claimed she got during a scuffle with Eisler's ex-wife, Marcia O'Brien, on Friday in Canada, said Swanson spokesman Michael Sands.

Anyway, what fun eh? The story with everything. Blondes, babes, film stars, violence, infidelity and betrayal and even a catfight.

You just knew that with this many cliches fighting for room in a story that the Canadian in it was going to be an ice skater, didn't you?
