A long burning social media rivalry between two Venezuelan models boiled over into real life when a vicious fight broke out between them after they bumped into each other.
Former beauty queen Osmariel Villalobos, 28, now a morning chat show host, says she will have to take two weeks off work because of the trauma she received.
She described how she went to a class at her gym in Venezuela when her rival Diosa Canales walked into the changing room and attacked her.
For the past two years the two women have been social media enemies after Osmariel criticised Diosa for constantly posting revealing photos.

The social media war began when Osmariel Villalobos went after the choices made by Diosa Canales who would frequently flaunt her assets online
Osmarier says as Diosa came out of the bathroom she said: “Tomorrow (during a TV show) I will destroy you.
“I did not listen to her, I did not even look at her… and it only made her angry.
“She grabbed me, I pushed her and she threw herself at me with all her strength, with all her rage, with all her hatred.
“I have never seen a person with such anger in their face, in their heart.
“I feel that if there had been a knife… she would have killed me there, in the bathroom, without hesitation.”
The ex-beauty queen later shared photos on social media or her injuries and wearing her neck-brace while holding her daughter.
But Diosa offered a different version of what happened.
She said: “I know it’s difficult to think that it was not me [who was violent]”, Canales showing off her injuries], as I have been, but that was a past in my life.”
Canales maintains she was not the aggressor as does denies any wrong doing but so does Osmarier
According to Canales, her on-air nemesis “got out of control” just because she told her she would be speaking some home-truths on TV about the ex-beauty queen.
She said: “I told her I would be revealing some truths about her on the show ‘Saturday night,’ and that she knows what I’m going to say, then she got angry and comes over to me.”
But Diosa did publicly apologise to Osmariel Villalobos, even though “she attacked me”.
Diosa is no stranger to the spotlight and shot to international fame when she appeared naked in front of 30,000 viewers on a live webcam.
