Paula Broadwell smacks photographer in forehead with car door
Incident occurs outside feisty biographer's home as she tries to evade press horde

David Petraeus’ ex-mistress, Paula Broadwell, left a female news photographer with a bloodied forehead Monday in a confrontation outside the biographer’s North Carolina home.

The 40-year-old West Point grad smacked the photographer with the driver’s side door of her Nissan Pathfinder SUV.

“I had my camera and in all the chaos the door slammed and I got hit in the head with the flash,” said Nell Redmond, a freelancer for the Associated press.

Redmond suffered a small cut on her forehead in the incident, witnessed by a Daily News reporter...

Two photos in this article - the AP photographer's bloody forehead and Paula Broadwell in her SUV.

3. I'd say that is an occupational hazard.

Perhaps she should not have been so close to the SUV.

4. If the photographer

was that close that she got hit from the door being opened, she was too close. I have no sympathy for the vultures in the press (none really for Broadwell either but that's an entirely different story).

The article says the photographer actually got hit in the head with her own camera.

11. Funny the use of the word 'feisty' to describe her. Literary license, I suppose.

The article describes her as grim-faced. That doesn't sound like a synonym for 'feisty' to me.

13. If Broadwell could have that affair back, I am sure she would take it back in a heartbeat.

But as things are, she has ruined her life for a long time, if not forever and damaged the lives of her husband and children.

18. her husband seemed to be in such a jovial mood --

-- joking with reporters. I am wondering if "affair" to Petraeus means the one time he tried to kiss her, and she did not fight him off,
or something like that.

Otherwise one would expect a "normal" reaction from Broadwell's husband to be somewhat different than the jovial, joking mood he was in with reporters.

Maybe it's how their marriage works.

Or, as you say, they could have had a very open relationship...

28. I think she got a book out of that affair--if she were to take anything back, it would be those

nutty, stalkerish emails to Jill Kelley.

I know "the story" is that the affair started up AFTER Petraeus got out of the military, but I don't believe that. I think when she was running around Afghanistan behind Petraeus when he was still on active duty, dressed VERY inappropriately for the region/culture in skin-tight clothing while he interacted with local tribal leadership, she and he were having their little thang.

It wasn't an eight month affair that ran its course, it was an affair over several YEARS. IMO.

Right click over the pic in your browser, select "Copy Image URL," then paste it into the body of a post here.

Er, that's in Windows...if you have a Mac, I don't know how to grab the URL. No habla Mac.

Paste info into post

this picture was titled: http://assetsDOTnydailynewsDOTcom/polopoly_fs/1.1204615.1353354359!/img/httpImage/image.jpg_gen/derivatives/landscape_635/article-broadwell-1119.jpg

with DOT where the periods would be so you can see what it looks like

In this case... no go.

So, go to imgur or photobucket or a photo sharing site and up load the image, then paste that info here:

32. Insanity. Some photog went to court for Lindsay Lohan driving over his FOOT? But hey,

consumers/tabloids with "inquiring minds want to know" will pay gigantic sums for these "money shots".

If someone was literally in my face with a camera and I had a car door at my disposal, I'd call it a two-fer...one fer the camera and one fer the forehead.
