Murdoch THANKS Wife for Slapping Pie Attacker

Filed under: Rupert Murdoch, Wendi Deng

Rupert Murdoch‘s wife — the lady who smacked the HOLY CRAP out of the man who tried to hit her hubby with a pie — says her efforts didn’t go unappreciated … because Rupert has since THANKED her for the slap heard ’round the world. 

Wendi Deng was hanging out in her hotel in NYC yesterday — when photogs asked, “What did Rupert think [about the attack]?”

With a great big smile on her face, Wendi replied, “He thanked me for it.”

You’re damn right he did … nobody messes with The Deng.
