WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- We are learning more about what led to the arrest of New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger last week. The one person people want to hear from, other than Berger, is the alleged victim Heather Blaylock. Blaylock went on the Big Talker FM Saturday to tell her side of the story.

"If this was just Joe Schmoe down the street having a fight, I don't think it would have had the same result as Brian Berger the county commissioner and his girlfriend having a fight," Blaylock said.

Blaylock finally broke her silence on the Big Talker Saturday afternoon. In an interview, Blaylock gave her side of what happened between her and the commissioner.

"We just got into an argument and things got heated, and it was making me uncomfortable," she said. "He never actually touched me physically, but it got to the point where I just wanted some third person to be there."

Blaylock said she thinks Berger may have accidentally thrown out her things, but that's not what she originally thought.

"The box that was on the curb had a lot of trash all sitting on top, but then at the very bottom of the box was some of my things, like some Christmas ornaments and my son's baby blanket," Blaylock said. "There was that in there, but it was at the bottom of the box. And when I asked him, 'Were you gonna throw this away and not tell me?' He was like, 'I wasn't throwing it away'. I was like, 'Well, it was on the curb.'"

Blaylock says she has been abused in past relationships, which is why she says she thinks she overreacted to this situation.

"I've had abusive relationships before Brian, so I still kind of have this thing in my brain where I get a little scared sometimes, and I saw him walking toward me, and he looked really mad. I was like, 'I'm gonna get out of here, and we'll cool off and talk about this later,'" she said.

When she left, she told police that Berger tore off a door handle from her car. She later said she thought he just did not want her to leave.

"I don't know if he was grabbing it," she said. "I think it was maybe more he didn't want me to leave, and the door handle came off in his hand."

Blaylock says she does not think fights like this are uncommon when you love someone.

"Our fights are things a lot of couples go through," Blaylock said. "Some fights are more severe than others, but the fact is, when you're with someone you love, then you have these rough fights, and you move on. If you truly love somebody, you will work it out and move on."

Blaylock, who described Berger as a "sweet guy," says she does not trust the media to tell an accurate story. She also said she would repeat everything she said on the big talker in a court of law. Berger is scheduled to be back in court July 19.

Brian Berger

Sounds like an OJ moment. Heather if you read these comments. Please take out a restraining order and do not have any more contact with him. You intuition is correct. If you continue to LET him act this way to YOU, you "could" become another statistic. For your precious children’s sake don’t even talk with him. It will give him hope if you do and he will never leave you alone. You are a beautiful woman and have little ones that need you. I know easier said than done...but it can be done....good luck and god bless!

Wow

IS THIS GIRL FOR REAL? HOW STUPID CAN YOU BE. WHERE IS SOCIAL SERVICES TO GET THESE CHILDREN OUT OF THIS VOLITALE SITUATION? SHE SAYS SHE LOVES THIS MAN AND COUPLES FIHGT LIKE THIS AT TIMES! I CALL BS ON THAT STATEMENT. IF SHE DOESN'T RUN LIKE HELL FROM THIS MAN SHE DESREVES WHAT SHE GETS! AS FAR AS BRIAN HE NEEDS TO RESIGNS BECAUSE SURELY NO COMMISIONER BUSINESS IS GOING ON SO THEREFORE THE TAXPPAYERS MONEY IS BEING WASTED. COME ON PEOPLE WHEN ARE YOU GOING TO WISE UP AND GET THE GARBARGE OUT OF OFFICE!!!!

who.....

...let the dogs out? woofwoofwoof

WWAY Blaylock

What made you consider showing multiple photos of Blaylock during your 5pm report in suggestive-poses? That's the good ideas floating around at the station? desperate for the ratings? You couldn't have gone with one photo, instead you show these pictures in an attempt to discredit her? Maybe she gave you the photo's to use?

She posed provacatively.... and then posted~

... into the social media world. It's up for grabs.... you'd think she would have known better, after all, this is her generations outlet.
Blaylock posted her "whatever" poses for "whoever" to notice. This is not WWAY's fault that she thinks she's hot.
They may have wanted to show her as she and her agent sees her!

Publicity did wonders for LiLo, and Paris...and it did not matter one bit that it was trashy.
This isn't really trashy, but it is really peculiar!

Another words, it is right on target for the "World According to Berger", set to be released in the fall of '12. The Bio Channel should be arriving soon, or City Confidential or Ripley's Believe it or Not.

Berger, do us a favor and resign so County business can resume!

big mistake..

this girl Blaylock is making a big mistake if she's changing her story so she "won't lose her man". She's not dating Kobe Bryant or Tom Brady. This guy Berger is in the drain & swirling fast...sorry Miss Blaylock, no money here.

Okay Scott: What's with the glamour shots?

Was this some kind of deal? Get my professional portfolio shots onto the website and I'll give you an interview? Mister DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up?

I agree the trashy glamour

I agree the trashy glamour shots are a bit much!

Berger

Is this part of her resume' for work at The Crazy Horse? - Holy Cow!

Give the guy his due

she is good looking. But I think you'll see her at Thee Doll House in MB rather than Crazy Horse.

Berger

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!

B. Berger

seriously gross people..

Blaylock

Well I have known Heather for a few years and I for one know she did not talk with anyone from WWAY except to clarify that her children were not involved in Thursday's incident. She has told me herself that she does not trust this station and so any information reported is from information gained from another source. Therefore, it is hardly considered an "exclusive."
Secondly, I called Heather right after seeing this posting to tell her about what has been run on this site. Heather never gave WWAY this picture, nor did they even inform her they were running a story. Sadly, her Myspace is still set to "public" and that is where WWAY got the photos from. The sick thing is that she has around 60 photos on Myspace and only about 12 of them are of this nature and that is only because she used to model and this is from her modeling portfolio. The fact out of 60 photos WWAY chose to use this one says alot about their character and what they are hoping to come across. It is a real shame when the media has to resort to this!

You are what you present yourself as

If you put sexually suggestive poses of yourself on a social networking site you are setting yourself up to be judged in a less than flattering light.

MS Blaylock gets little sympathy in my eyes as she chooses to expose
her young children to (by her own admission)her continuing succession of lovers and uncommitted relationships.

WWAY's decision to use those photos are IMO complimentary to the story, Here are two adults, one with children, The other a county commissioner, both acting like over sexed teenagers arguing in the street in a quiet residential neighborhood with apparent disregard for their neighbors. Tawdry is the nicest description I can give it.

My Space!

When's the LAST time anyone used MySpace?

Excuses, excuses, Kelly W., advocate for H.B. in more ways than one!
Yawn!

Are you her agent?

Sounds like it.

NONE of you people are important at all, it is about time you all realize it, especially BB and his frantic reactionary girlfriend.

Either it was domestic or not. Give us all a break, grow up and for God's sake, simmer down!
