Joanna Krupa gets punched in the face on 'Real Housewives of Miami'

Bravo / Today
Things take a violent turn on "The Real Housewives of Miami."

It's a fight that's been buzzed about since before the latest season of "The Real Housewives of Miami" kicked off. On Sunday night, viewers finally had a chance to see what all of the hubbub was about and just how far it went when things suddenly took a violent turn between former BFFs Joanna Krupa and Adriana De Moura.

In an episode titled "Bras and Brawls, Part II," Lisa Hochstein's lingerie party raged on. And while the event was meant to be all about charity, there was little charity between the women of South Florida when the soiree shifted focus to an article in which Karent Sierra dished about her fellow housewives. Adriana wasn't happy about it, and didn't hide it. Joanna reminded her that just because it's in print, that doesn't mean it's true. And somehow that -- plus a hefty dose of lingering drama from "Girls Gone Wild" honcho Joe Francis -- was all it took to launch an attack.

"When I disengaged and I left the argument, (Joanna) chased after me down the hallway," Adriana recalled. "I just feel a hand that goes and grabs me. From that moment on, I just see red and next thing I know, hell breaks loose."

Or more accurately, Adriana broke loose, as she suddenly whipped around and punched Joanna.

"You do not disrespect me like that," Joanna said to the camera after the confrontation. "Everything happened so fast, that the only thing I do remember was thinking, 'Oh my God, I see the devil. For the first time in my life, I see the devil.' And what did the devil do? Turned around and punched me."

Of course, that's not exactly how an onlooker would characterize the exchange.

"I didn't see who threw the first punch, but they were behaving like savage beasts," Lisa said. "There was nails and hair flying around and there was a broom -- I don't know how the broom got involved."
