On the last episode of the Real Housewives of Miami, Adriana De Moura and Joanna Krupa had a physical altercation at Lisa Hochstein's lavish charity party-turned-pit of reality television drama.RELATED: How 'Real Housewives of Miami' Became the Best of the Franchise
De Moura laid a slap on Krupa (watch the incident below), but which woman threw the first blow? The cast gives their take on what really happened:
Most people who are invited guests at my home understand the correct way to conduct themselves and are simply there to have a good time, not to stir the pot or make it about them.
So many failed to exercise restraint at my party in one way or another. Shame on all involved! Looking back I should have tossed them all out! They made it about them and not my event.
I thought the best way to get past this was to invite the girls into the kitchen away from the madness to have a drink together. Apparently this was not a wise decision. Adriana and Joanna seemed to have disregarded my wishes completely. Adriana decided that she would confront Karent about the Botox for brains news article and Joanna decided to come to Karent’s rescue. Although this conversation should have been had at another time, it should have been between Karent and Adriana. Things were said that clearly touched nerves and escalated this argument quickly. Joanna should not have chased Adriana as she tried to walk away. And Adriana should have used more self-control and not smacked her. There is never an excuse for physical violence. I really did not see who assaulted whom first. It is possible that Joanna grabbed Adriana from behind. Either way, it was wrong and I was unhappy with both of them. Confrontations mixed with alcohol make for very bad hangover.
Being physically attacked by Joanna was one of the most traumatic moments of my life. I had no choice but to act instinctively in self-defense, since I was under physical attack
First she insulted me, making fun of what I was wearing and said I was "wearing a turd on my head." Like that wasn't enough, she even dissed Elsa, who wasn't even there, by saying: Elsa is a f------ devil, bitch, burn in hell!" I was appalled to see how low she could go, even attacking an older lady, who wasn't even present. At her age she deserves some respect!
Later she saw the opportunity to gang up on me while I was trying to clear the air with Karent in private. I found myself being cornered by her and her fiancé, who later tried to stop her from going crazy, but she pushed herself past him and went on to curse me out, putting her finger all over my face, told my I was a "nobody," and called me a f------ whore! After all these insults and confrontation, I still manage to disengage and was trying to leave the party when she chased me down the hallway, shouting more insults and trying to stop me. I continue to walk away from her, but when I felt the PAIN of her fingernails in my flesh, my instincts kicked in and I reacted in self-defense
The whole altercation was very taxing on me emotionally, and I cried a lot when I got home. Never before in my life had I gotten physical with anyone. I had deep scratches in my arms and bruises that lasted for weeks -- that has healed, but the thought of that fight still brings me to a very painful place every time I have to speak about it.
Marysol Patton :
Then there is the fight, which was ONE of the most frightening things I have ever seen in my life; everyone was really shaken up. It was a dreadful situation for everyone (those directly involved and the onlookers). I hope I never have to witness anything like that again. But there is a light at the end of this long, dark tunnel and that is that Lisa raised money for the Susan G. Komen Foundation, a cause that is very close to my heart.
Alexia Echevarria :
I refuse to continue talking about this crazy party. You the viewer I feel have seen enough to make up your mind about this whole mess and about the characters involved. I feel the point has been made and furthermore actions speak louder than words (and there was definitely lots of action)! You be the judge of it. Who are the bullies now? Who are the mean girls? And why would Joanna even be calling Adriana the devil, perhaps she was referring to someone else.
