The families of "America's Next Top Model" castoff Bianca Golden and "Hairspray" star Nikki Blonsky are still feuding days after a wild brawl in a Caribbean airport sparked a heap of racial slurs and the brutal beating of Golden's mom.
The weird encounter Wednesday has left Elaine Golden in a Florida intensive care unit with a broken nose and cracked skull, relatives of the Queens nurse said.
"She's still in a lot of pain," Bianca Golden's aunt, Annette Glinton, said from the mom's hospital room yesterday.
Elaine was only trying to defuse the situation at Providenciales Airport on the Turks and Caicos Islands when "a big man" - believed to be Blonsky's dad, Carl - began punching her in the head, said Glinton.
"She was just trying to get her daughter away from those people," Glinton said of her sister.
Meanwhile, Blonsky's father is being held in a jail cell on the Turks and Caicos. His frantic family is unable to post $75,000 bail, a relative said. Carl Blonsky faces a potential eight-year prison term and is being held at least until Friday on a charge of "grievous bodily harm."
The two families were waiting for a flight home to New York when the bizarre incident unfolded.
The Blonskys allegedly had commandeered several seats in the tiny airport departure lounge just for their luggage, and only reluctantly put some of the bags on the floor when one of Golden's male relatives, who was holding a child, asked to sit, a witness said.
Peeved that their luggage had to be placed on the floor, the Blonsky family apparently started spouting racial hatred, referring to blacks as animals and throwing around the N-word, claims witness Maria Williams, Bianca's cousin, who brought Golden and her family to the airport.
"Bianca sat and listened and tried to ignore it until it got too much for her, and then she told Nikki to shut her mouth," Williams said.
But a source claims the racial invective began when a member of Golden's group proclaimed: "I don't want to sit next to any white bitch."
Nikki Blonsky, who hasn't had a hit since her breakout in the 2007 musical, and Bianca Golden exchanged words but not blows, though Nikki allegedly tried to rip Golden's earring off, Williams said.
Nikki was wearing a neck brace during a Friday court appearance in the case.
The psuedo-celebs, both 19, were each charged with "actual bodily harm," which carries a possible sentence of two years. Both women were released.
