A Manhattan real estate broker is suing her lover's wife and her family for allegedly threatening to break her legs, disfigure her, and destroy her after they learned about the affair. She is seeking $5million in damages.
Alice Bahar, 37, met her lover, landlord Abraham Sanieoff, as an exclusive broker for one of his West Village rental properties. He pursued her, but Bahar says she initially told him 'No stay away from me. You're a married guy,' according to her attorney.
Eventually she relented and would share a love nest with him on Grove St. However, when his wife, Charlet Sanieoff, 35, found out, she reportedly went ballistic on her husband's mistress.

Alice Bahar, 37, does not deny the affair, and says she originally said no to Abraham's advances
'What you have is a family affair where a husband cheats on his wife and then instead of the wife being angry at the husband, they go on the attack trying to destroy the woman he seduced,' Bahar's lawyer Robert Hantman told the New York Post.
'They had an affair, she admits that. The claim is that after the fact the wife found out about it and the wife sent the most threatening messages you can imagine,' Hantman said.
In the court filing is a voicemail from Charlet, in which she allegedly threatened Bahar with a hired thug that will do bodily harm if she didn't return jewelry Abraham gifted her.
The audio of that conversation was obtained by the Post in which Charlet allegedly says: 'Trust me when I tell you, you have 24 hours. One day, one day left to give me back every single gift.
'Write it down you dumb b**** ... If it's not in my hands in one day, one day I will give him the order to break both of your mother-f***ing legs... He'll just make it look like an accident. He'll just make it look like you fell down a flight of stairs. You can run, you can hide, my team is watching you.
'…I got good news for you, you're not cut out for brokerage but Wh**** R Us is looking for you! You'll be their number one star. 24 hours! Mail them!'
In the February voicemail the spurned wife allegedly describes the alleged hired heavy as 'black, 6-foot-4, and… 319 pounds'.

Charlet also allegedly called on her mother and her two brothers to continue to threaten Bahar.
They warned her 'they were going to destroy her life and do something to her face so she could never look the same,' the civil suit says.
Charlet was arrested by the NYPD in March over the messages. Bahar subsequently obtained a restraining order against her in July. The charges were dropped after the wife left her alone for six months.
But now Bahar wants to sue the couple for 'extreme mental and emotional distress.'
'Nothing was actually my fault,' Bahar added to The Post.
'I had to go through a difficult time because of these people. They never left me alone,' she said.
When the Post contacted Abraham Sanieoff, he said, 'Uhh. I have no comment.'
