Broadway Heir Accused of Pulling Hair
Theater people are just like us, prone to childish foibles and the occasional bad decision. For instance, take Eric Nederlander, of those Nederlanders, you know, the Broadway ones, and former husband of Jessica Seinfeld, nee Sklar. He was arrested at the apartment of his girlfriend, Nancy Okun, who has a "limited order of protection against him" -- making one wonder why he was at her apartment, and, in fact, why she is still his girlfriend -- after he allegedly pulled her hair while she was sleeping and accused her of cheating on him after looking at her cell phone.
Dear Mr. Nederlander, these things are better discussed while both parties are awake, and without any unnecessary and painful tugging at a loved-one's follicles! (Further, never snoop in the cell phone of someone you are dating. Take it from us: It can only go badly.)
For Nederlander's part, his lawyers deny the allegations and say "there are serious issues undermining the complainant's credibility." Meanwhile, he does happen to have something of a reported history of orders of protection, including one issued to his second wife during their split.
After the alleged hair-pulling incident, Okun has a full order of protection against him, and Nederlander is out on a $5,000 bond, posted by "bail bondsman to the stars Ira Judelson."
How the mighty have fallen.
