Kenley denies assaulting beau with cat

Reality television personality Kenley Collins insists she did not throw a cat at her former fiance in their New York flat, contrary to reports.

The Project Runway star was arrested March 17 and charged with second-degree assault after she allegedly flung the feline, a laptop and apples at her former fiance Zak Penley and slammed a door on his head during a heated fight in their Brooklyn apartment.

The New York Post said Collins appeared in a Brooklyn court Wednesday and was told the assault charge against her will be downgraded from a felony to a misdemeanor.

The story portrayed in the papers is false, the Post quoted her as saying after the hearing. The only reason why a cat was involved in this story is because when I first approached Zak, I was holding my cat and it was gently tossed onto my bed.
