Brandon DeShazer, Kenya Moore's assistant, was seriously roughed up by Appolo Nida, Phaedra Parks' husband (below), in an epic Real Housewives of Atlanta brawl.
We'll have to wait months before this plays out on the Bravo show, but the alleged beatdown, which was caught on tape, all stemmed from a workout video.
It's not entirely clear why, but witnesses say Appolo flew into a rage and "violently attacked" DeShazer at a party that was being filmed for the upcoming season.
Nida reportedly had to be restrained by SEVEN crew members.
Appolo Nida was pissed because Brandon DeShazer and Kenya Moore had apparently agreed to produce a workout video starring Phaedra Parks.
Instead, they went and produced their own, cutting Phaedra out.
Nida felt slighted, blamed DeShazer for stabbing Phaedra in the back, and opened huge can of whoop ass on The Real Housewives of Atlanta star's assistant.
That's according to witnesses. Nida has a different story.
The reality star tells TMZ that there was a fight on the set, which he didn't elaborate on, and that he tried to break it up and got attacked by Brandon.
Nida says he defended himself but it got out of control.
