'Real Housewife' in

Bloody Beverly Hills Attack

12/24/2010 12:10 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lisa Vanderpump, one of the stars of "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," was involved in a real brutal confrontation at the famous Polo Lounge at the Beverly Hills Hotel early this AM. ... TMZ has learned.

Lisa tells TMZ ... she was sitting in a booth with her husband Ken and L.A. news reporter Robert Kovacik ... along with two elderly people, when a man at a nearby table began harassing them with verbal taunts.

Lisa says the man was "extremely drunk" and was shouting, "I've seen the show.  You're wearing a lot more make-up now, and your eyes are darker and smokier."  Lisa says then it got personal, as he hollered, "What are you doing sitting with old people?"

Lisa says the man then walked over to her booth and continued his rant.  That's when Robert, a long-time reporter with the L.A. NBC affiliate, stood up and said, "Please stop."  Lisa says the man then cold-cocked Robert, punching him squarely in the mouth ... and shoved Lisa's husband to the ground. 

Lisa says Robert was hurt, bleeding badly, but they had to wait because the hotel called the cops.  When Beverly Hills police arrived, Robert said he did not want to press charges.  Lisa took Robert to a family friend's home -- a doctor -- who cleaned him up. We're told the doc was none other than Beverly Hills surgeon Paul Nassif ... married to Lisa's "Real Housewives" co-star Adrienne Maloof.

We're told Robert is going back to Dr. Paul later today to get his lip stitched up.

The attacker was not arrested. It's unclear if Robert will press charges.

Lisa tells us,  "I hope Robert presses charges.  The man was outrageous."

Beverly Hills -- it's dangerous out there!

I love Lisa, she and her husband are the nicest people.

As for the idiot that think Adrienne's husband is going to lose his malpractice insurance, you are super stupid.
He is a highly successful Beverly Hills plastic surgeon and his wife is a billionaire.
You have any idea how much clout they have?
You are delusional.

I was going to post what Random Mac User just did! Totally agree. I feel it's Robert's civil duty to follow through and press charges against this violent nimrod. That's the price we pay to live in a free, 'rule-of-law' society. I sure hope he reconsiders. A punch landing just right, in the wrong spot, can kill a person. Stupid violent drunks are not funny. I would have kicked his ass without hesitation at the very beginning of his shena****ns.

Robert Kovacik just wants this to happen to someone else. Drunks need to be punished maybe it was Robert Kovacik's ex boyfriend

Wake up America and find your balls again before we're forced to learn Mandarin and won't have these forums to sound off anymore.

Camille is the trash whore. Frazier got rid of her for a reason and after watching the show now we know. She is a trouble maker and flirts with all the men. Lisa seems really nice and a very down to earth sort of person and very funny.

Rule #1
Never interrupt a drunken man in the middle of his speech.

Rule #2
The minute you do expect him to knock you out or remove your lips from your face.

Rule #3
Don't risk your life trying to be a Captain Save-A-Ho.

Amen to that ali baba and I think Lisa is funny and seems to be really a nice person. The fame whore is Camille plain and simple! No wonder Frazier got rid of her. She is the biggest flirt and seems to think so highly of herself and always starting trouble with other women.

Drunk guys are pretty easy to beat up. Why didn't they just kick his ass & call it a night? He got punched in a bar, Boo Hoo Hoo. Man up

Well that's what happens when you put yourself out there as a hilariously wacky reality tv star. Private citizens usually get to avoid this kind of nonsense.

The number of clueless, mean, seething comments on TMZ and other sites allowing discussion tells me more about the state of our country and her inhabitants than I would like to know. Words can't express my disgust for those thinking they are cute and funny, or those who think they are "real" men or those who dream up a publicity stunt. Eeeugh!!!!
