This is really interesting to me.
Sarah Welch — a model and former contestant on “The Bachelor” — is suing several companies involved with the fashion show she worked at the Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood on October 18, 2007.
We found the lawsuit — filed in Santa Monica earlier this month. Welch claims she suffered “great injuries to her body, shock and injuries to her nervous system” after she fell through a hole in the runway which was created by the performer who went on before her.
Welch is suing for negligence and is seeking unspecified damages.
I know Sarah Welch. When I lived in LA, I spent a few months dating a guy who was in business with her boyfriend. Actually, I just checked, and I still have the girl’s phone number in my cell phone. The first night I met her, I wrote about it here, and that article about the USA4Real New Year’s Eve party was picked up and syndicated in a few different places. A couple weeks later, I got a call from Sarah. “I just wanted to thank you for that article,” she said. “I’ve gotten so much press about that fall, and I think you’re the first writer who actually took the time to figure out who I was as a person and write something nice about me. It meant the world to me, thank you.” We spoke on and off a few times after that, then I broke up with my dude and I never saw her again.
But I stand by my initial analysis. It’s kind of a silly lawsuit, but she’s a good girl, and I wish her well.
