kristy swansonMaybe she's just channeling Anna Nicole Smith* or something, but celebrity skater Kristy Swanson is in a bit of trouble with the mounties up in Canada. She has been arrested for allegedly attacking the ex-wife of her baby daddy, professional ice skater Lloyd Eisler. Lloyd and Kristy had a baby together back in February, which is about a year after they originally hooked up while paired up on Fox's short-lived show, Skating with Celebrities. Lloyd Eisler's wife was eight months pregnant at the time that he left her for Kristy.

People magazine is reporting that Kristy actually blames Eisler's ex-wife for the altercation, though Kristy is the one who was arrested.

*Kristy's most recent gig was a guest stint on Law & Order where she played a character who was based on Anna Nicole Smith.

**UPDATE Kristy is pressing assault charges against Eisler's ex-wife. Canadian police took photos of bruises and cuts on Kristy's body. It sounds like quite a brawl. And they're fighting over this guy.

kristy swanson; lloyd eislerKristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler are the new parents of a baby boy. The couple met on Fox's Skating with Celebrities in late 2005. At the time, Eisler's current wife was pregnant with the couple's second child. But Eisler says they had already separated before he and Kristy hooked up. It became pretty obvious about halfway through the series that something had happened between Kristy and Lloyd.

The couple's baby is named Magnus Hart Swanson Eisler. He was 7 pounds, 11 ounces. The couple plans to marry but have not announced a date.

These two totally hooked up

swanson eisler togetherThis could explain a lot. Star Magazine and the gals on The View are reporting that Skating with Celebrities pair Kristy Swanson and Lloyd Eisler are now an item. On Monday's episode, these two really sizzled. Kristy seemed a lot more comfortable with Lloyd than she had in the past episodes. She almost kissed him on the lips at the end of their routine, but he turned and she got his neck instead. I know she's an actress, but she looked totally smitten with him during that whole routine. Whatever it was, something changed for those two between the fourth and fifth competition. If it is true, it's not all happy. Lloyd's wife is eight months pregnant with their second child.
