Wendi Deng Murdoch, the third wife of media tycoon Rupert Murdoch, is trending after she leapt to her husband’s defense—literally—during his testimony before the British Parliament.
As the chairman of the News Corporation was answering questions about the phone-hacking scandal that is rocking his media empire, a protester burst into the hearing room and tried to “pie” him. Mrs. Murdoch, a former volleyball player, sprung into action, slapping the assailant as he lunged at his target.
No one was injured. The pie thrower was arrested and the hearing resumed about 10 minutes later once order was restored.
