Carolina “Pampita” Ardohain is currently one of the most renowned figures in the entertainment world. Not only because he is a benchmark in modeling and in the business world, but also because he managed to build a beautiful assembled family with Roberto García Moritán. With the Buenos Aires legislator he had Ana and together they spend their days with the children that the model had with Benjamín Vicuña: Beltrán, Benicio and Bautista and try to stay as far away as possible from any type of conflict. For its part, Isabel Macedo is not in a very different situation. Belita’s mother and in the sweet expectation of her second daughter with Juan Manuel Urtubey. Although both celebrities can now be seen radiant and happy, It wasn’t long ago that they made all the headlines for “grabbing the highlights” during an exclusive party in Uruguay.
The scene of the violent encounter between two of the most famous women in entertainment was Punta del Este. More specifically, the New Year’s Eve bowling party Tequila. The year was 2011, a time when Pampita and Benjamín Vicuña were still a renowned couple within the environment, already with several children and a life project together. But despite the years that have passed, the rumors of the infidelities of the Chilean actor appeared to endanger all that they had built.
This year, All eyes were on Isabel Macedo, with whom Vicuña shared the screen in Don Juan and his beautiful lady (Telephone), novel that was on the air between 2008 and 2009. Apparently, the passion that was lived in fiction would have overflowed the plot to become a reality. The passage of two years between both events was not enough to calm the waters and the situation did not stop getting worse. Pampita was never the kind of woman who let herself be passed over and, as expected, it was a matter of time before the bomb exploded.
It only took all three parts of the love triangle to coincide in the same place, an unfortunate message and a suggestive dance for things to get ugly. Everything lined up during the expected party. The details of the night are blurry for a couple of reasons. The first is that the protagonists avoided talking about the subject, reliable witnesses were few and, more importantly, social networks were not as oiled as they are now.
Although the stories that emerged over the years varied depending on the narrator, the main story is always the same. The rumors of the extramarital relationship had subsided, but while Pampita and Benjamin enjoyed the event organized by Shakira, the actor’s cell phone rang. The notification corresponded to a text from Macedo that said: “May we have another happy Christmas Eve.” To this was added that, according to witnesses, the former Ankle boots He did not stop “fooling” the model and danced all night in a very provocative way near Vicuña, perhaps without measuring the consequences of his actions, or perhaps without imagining that something could happen.
But Macedo was wrong and, around 6, Pampita decided to take action on the matter. Those who saw her say that the model ran through the bowling alley, pushed Macedo and, while the actress was on the floor, she not only dealt her a couple of blows but also dragged her by the hair to the door of the venue. Others claim that he left marks on his face, chest and back. All confirmed that security officials had to intervene to separate them.
After the event, there was no celebrity left without giving their own version of the facts. William Coppola stated that the model had “a few extra drinks” and that, definitely, she had won by “knockout”. Analía Franchín added that, during the attack, Pampita shouted at her opponent and told him: “I received you in my house, you met my children, you played me ugly.” Yanina Screpante noted that Isabel Macedo “fooled” the model all night. Thus, the fact that it was slowly becoming a legend was enlarged with the contribution of all those present.
The most recent data on the fight that rocked the country a decade ago was provided by Sabrina Garciarena, who claimed to have foreseen the harsh outcome of the night. During 2021, the actress went through PH: Can we talk (Telefe) and remembered what happened in the bowling alley. “I was the person who wanted to avoid it but nobody listened to me because it was New Year. Not to avoid, but I realized the uncomfortable situation that was going to happen and everyone said nothing is going to happen and I was warning one, another and it happened, “he said.
In that sense, he gave more details: “Carolina and Benjamin came from a party and arrived later. Isabel was already there dancing with her friends. We were all happy, celebrating and in a moment everything was over and I saw that Caro was looking at her, because it was The voice of the people what had happened and I told Benjamín ‘take her away’”. But, the actor ignored him and the rest…is history.
Although the witnesses were quick to come out to give statements, the protagonists of the fight preferred to continue their lives as if nothing had happened. Pampita never spoke about the subject and Isabel Macedo took years to give her version of the events and, even so, he did it in the most hermetic way possible.
“What happened with Pampita was quite unpleasant. He hit me a lot. It is an issue that has already happened. I want out of this. Out of respect for his family, I don’t want to talk about it anymore.. At that time I did not return anything because I do not get along with violence, but I filed a complaint. I was leaving the bowling alley and he grabbed me from behind, “said the actress. After that, the violent episode was “buried” by celebrities, but it remained latent in the public’s memory and became part of the great national repertoire of legendary summer conflicts.
