| Filed under: Exclusives!Gay Gay GayProject RunwayReality TVLGBT


An eyewitness reports exclusively to PerezHilton.com that Project Runway season 4 contestant Rami Kashou was attacked at West Hollywood hotspot The Abbey late Thursday evening.

Rami was supposedly hit in the face with a glass bottle.

Our source says Rami was quite bloodied up and taken away by ambulance to a local hospital.


A spokesperson for The Abbey confirmed to us that an 'incident' took place and that "The Abbey's staff is fully cooperating with police as they investigate this matter."

    He wrote that he was lonely on his blog on " C asu al se ek . co m ". It is said that he was looking for someone to be his girlfriend. Is it true?

    God bless Rami Kashou!
    He's a draping god.
    And even Rami knows that BUSH SUCKS!
    Send him to IRAQ today!
    Send our fabulous troops HOME.
    Then put Cheney in jail where he belongs to rot forever.
    That is all.

    looks like Rami could beat the shit out of some attacker. he was probably sucker hit. i hope he is ok.

  8. Novel says – reply to this


    Yeah, a gay eyewitness to this barfight newstory makes it about as reliable as toilet paper in the rain.

  9. tina says – reply to this


    Yes it was a sucker hit. This is the bad side of being popular and successful. I heard the story too and the guy was a drunk jealous insecure madman.
    An angry person that projected his rage on Rami.
    I feel terrible for Rami. The jerk is in jail on $40,000 bail.

    Rami is such a nice person, this is awful.
    I had a chance to hang out with him at Barracuda in NYC and I can't believe anyone could be that nasty as to go that far.
    Hope he gets well soon.

  13. silli says – reply to this

    TMZ just reported that inside the weapon police discovered a note signed by Jim Croce that read ,if I could save time in a bottle the first that I'd like to do…and the song goes on. Investigators who are on top of this fluid story believe that this was a record company promotion that has gone bad

  17. LkAtU says – reply to this


    PERVez the big story of the day is K-Fed gets full custody of his kids. So why haven't you reported on it. Could it be that you have been gagged and banned from anything Britney on your site. Mention her and you'll be sued for all your food money.

  18. Daisy says – reply to this


    OMG, I hope he's okay. He seemed so sweet on the show.

  21. Bitch says – reply to this


    So very sad. I really hope this wasn't a hate crime, although I'm 99.9 % sure it probably was. I am amazed that things like this STILL happen. Greater punishment needs to happen.

  22. trent says – reply to this


    what is wrong with people? such anger. rami is such a classy and friendly guy. I can't believe rami had the misfortune to run into such a drunk angry thug. hitting someone in the face with a bottle??? pathetic!!

  23. Moria says – reply to this


    Honestly, The Abbey has really gone downhill the past few years. I'm sad to hear this. :(

  24. PoorR says – reply to this


    I wonder if Christian was involved????


  25. Sarah says – reply to this


    I hope he's okay!

  26. Bryan says – reply to this


    I was there when it happen. After the staff stopped the fight, the guy who cracked the beer bottle over Rami decided to make a run for it. Of course half the staff went after him. I think the guy broke Rami's nose.

    Why, is it, Perez….you have sympathy and compassion for the gay community, ONLY if it involves gay MEN? But, if it involves lesbians or bi- women, you are quick with the diatribes, insults, defamation and slander?

    Before anyone asks…no, I am not gay….I am just fascinated by psychology. And, Perez can claim himself a 'blogger', all he wants….but, as long as he 'distributes and recycles' articles and photos (without consent)…he is nothing but a parasite, feeding off of an unsuspecting host. Alas, that particular analogy won't work on those who have never had to scan their bodies for ticks, during a camping trip.

  43. oh says – reply to this


    i thought he was HIV+ as well? or am i making that up somehow
    risky business
    hope hes okay!

  44. looki says – reply to this


    omg, like no way. i am his worshiper and i am not happy bout this. what else will i look at

  45. c. says – reply to this


    i love rami. he's gay? i wasn't sure. i hope it wasn't a hate crime, and just some drunk douchebag. still, i hope he gets well soon. he's a good egg.

  46. Dave says – reply to this


    some of you are nothing but a bunch of miserable low lives with your nasty and empty comments.. trying to take advantage to spread your seeds of hate about a good guy with a special talent. For those of you leaving nasty comments and rumors at a time like this, I hope you are not placed in such a position where you get to see how evil you sound when others write such rubbish about you during a sensitive time.

  47. kenda says – reply to this


    The Abbey has now hit a new low, a trashy and unsafe place.
    I'll never go there again.

    Rami is a nice and freindly guy. I'm glad the drunk thug is in jail.
    Rami my thoughts are with you Rami!

  48. Ameli says – reply to this


    Rami! You're wonderful and I hope you're ok! So talented and super nice, and you make beautiful clothes as well.

  49. Vanja says – reply to this



    You're an idiot in so many ways, I don't know where to start… And btw, Rami is Jewish and from Israel, he's not an arab.

  50. Krist says – reply to this


    This is terrible !! There are terrible terrible people in this world ! Everyone needs to watch their backs and what they say now or else they might get punched, or even killed….or in this case hit in the head with a beer bottle. Obviously the person who hit them was a pusssssssssy for using a beer bottle. A real man would use his BODY!

    Hope he is okay !!!! Get better!!! :)

  51. Good says – reply to this


    Jew, Arab who give a fuck both of these people are causing all the problems in the world. Let them fucking kill themselves. They're all a bunch of fanatic assholes.

  52. joy says – reply to this


    Re: Vanja
    Oh come on, sugar! There's no gay Israelis. He's from Ramallah, West Bank — that's so-called Palestinian land.

  53. miche says – reply to this


    Guys this is not a racist thing. I'm very surprised with the nationality comments here. You must have not know anything about Rami or watched his personality on TV. He is a total sweetheart and an artist.
    This is about a violent assault on an innocent man…not race.
    I hope Rami get's better. I fully support him.

  54. Europ says – reply to this


    Re: Simno – Shut the fuck up you ignorant piece of trash. I wish people like you would die soon. That way the normal peace loving people wouldn't be bothered with you bitches.

    @ joy ..THERE ARE GAY ISRAELIES!! Are you trying to say that there aren't any?!! What the hell is wrong with you people..and it's not so called Palestinian land..IT IS Palestinian land. Just because Israel likes to occupy everything they put their eye on doesn't make it normal. Unless you are Israeli which would explain it all.

  55. FC says – reply to this


    Rami is not only talented, but one of the sweetest and down to earth guy I've met in LA.
    Some of my friends who have worked with him say that he's not only very professional. but also un-diva like.
    That said, the Abbey has become more of a mixed bar/club for the last few years filled with unsavory transcient hetero poser types most weekends. Its become hollywood trashy.
    I'm not surprised that Rami has been a victim of gay-bashing.

  56. a says – reply to this


    I was at The Abbey last night and it was horrible. I was sitting outside when I heard a crash of glass breaking, all of a sudden a guy starting running away and a couple of other guys chased him grabbing him by his shirt. The guy they grabbed started yelling "He started it!" I had no idea what was going on until Rami came out a minute later gushing blood, and I mean running down his face! POOR RAMI!! I dont know how he was hit but he was bleeding above his eye, from his mouth and gushing from his nose. His nose was clearly broken! Rami told the security guard he wanted the police called as he wanted to press charges - the security guard actually had the nerve to tell Rami not to bleed on him! Seriously the guy was attacked at your establishment and you are telling him not to bleed on you! TO BE CONTINUED…

  57. a says – reply to this


    Then the guy who they were holding ripped through his shirt and ran away, not kidding - we were all shocked they let him get away - NO ONE FROM THE ABBEY WENT TO HELP RAMI at first - a guy went up and asked the bartender for ice - then he asked a waitress for ice, I think he asked for ice three times before anyone brought ice for Rami. Finally they had Rami on a chair and held his head back as they applied pressure and ice to his face. They had to keep changing whatever they were holding over him as it kept getting soaked in blood. Soon the police and EMS arrived, I went out to the police and happily saw that someone had chased down the idiot who hit Rami - now I saw the guy when they first stopped him and he didnt have a scratch on him, no blood gushing from him as it was from Rami so I laughed when he was cuffed shirtless facing the police car yelling "He started it"
    I am happy to say a lot of people seem to be giving statements to the police about what happened and I hope they give that guy the maximum for his violence.
    RAMI GET BETTER!! I hope you heal well - it looked horribly painful and I admire you for how calm you were during the whole incident!

    Abbey employeeRe: a

    Abbey Staff are selfish and disgusting wannabe frustrated actors turned into bartender weekdays stunt men… they are rude and they think they are Gods.. and .. the only nice one it's the lesbian girl at the door.. thats it!

    anyway. I do believe your story.. Abbey turned into a Ghetto palace, and it always STINKS like cheap candles and L.A River.

    Re: abbey
    Not surprise about the staff situation at The Abbey as its operated by the same owner of Area, Priviledge and Hyde. You get the picture.

  72. denny says – reply to this


    I think Rami is fantasic. This is unreal. I hope they hang the street criminal that did this. I saw the attackers pic on tmz. Death penalty. Kill the shirtless ugly thug that did this. Kill him!

  78. micky says – reply to this


    Did you see the drunk criminal that did it? His pics are up on tmz. He looks like a skinhead street queen! Ugly too. I hope the evil bitch stays in jail and out of Weho.

    Best thoughts and wishes for Rami xo. Nobody deserves BS from a drunk idiot like that.

  79. tippi says – reply to this


    Aaw that is a shame. A bottle in the face?? So 80's.
    I liked him on the show. I hope Rami is OK too.

  80. will says – reply to this


    It's over with for the Abbey. It's so trashy and touristy now. So much trash comes from out of town/Weho to hang there. Some of the staff sucks and are unprofessional.
    The security guards are just wanna-be actors. This is unfortunate for someone like Rami. I bet you no more celebs go there now after this.
