An argument “over a Kelly Clarkson TV show” turned violent Monday afternoon when a Florida Couple allegedly exchanged punches, according to police who busted the duo for domestic battery. According to arrest affidavits, 61-year-old Linda Donahower and 55-year-old Ronald Meyer were in their Clearwater residence late Monday afternoon when they “engaged in a verbal argument” about the Clarkson show. Clarkson, who won the first season of “American Idol” in 2002, hosts “The Kelly Clarkson Show,” a weekday talk show on NBC. The 37-year-old singer’s hour-long program debuted in September. Investigators charge that the quarrel between Donahower and Meyer turned physical when an annoyed Donahower punched Meyer “in the shoulder to get him to be quiet.” Meyer allegedly responded by jumping on Donahower and striking her in the face. Cops report that the couple have been in a “romantic relationship for approximately 14 years,” and that they were both “intoxicated causing inconsistencies in their statements.” Donahower and Meyer were both “taken into custody for a mutual battery.” (
