A Russian reality TV star and former Playboy model says that she was detained at Los Angeles International Airport on suspicions of being a Kremlin spy.
Victoria Bonya, a 37-year-old model and TV host who lives in Monaco and rose to fame after participating in the Russian reality TV show Dom-2 in 2006, wrote about her “endless day” in a February 23 Instagram post.
After she passed border patrol on her way to Los Angeles, customs officers allegedly pulled her aside and led her into a separate room for questioning.
“Instead of asking some real questions, the officer decided to talk about our president,” she wrote in a February 23 Instagram post. “Finding out everything about my position, he started talking about the KGB. […] I started laughing, as I really thought it was a joke, until they asked me the same thing for a third time!’’
