My Big Fat American Gypsy Wedding Descends Into Breast-Baring Bitchfight (VIDEO)

Perhaps proof that the Americans will always do it better, the US version of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding is promising to explode onto the screen with one hell of a bang.

Featuring a topless catfight between Maid of Honour Diamond and a female wedding guest, the show promises to be as much of a hit across the pond as it has been here.

The footage, screened on TMZ, shows Diamond being pummelled by Mellie (a guest from the groom’s side) at a wedding in West Virginia.

Sources say the catfight broke out after Mellie began dissing the bride and groom’s union – at which point Diamond gets stuck in.

The first episode of My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding will air on TLC on April 29.

You can watch it in the UK on Discovery Real Time from May 9.
