Joanna Krupa            

Polish-American Model; Known for Bravo's Hit Reality Series "The Real Housewives of Miami"

Polish-born Joanna Krupa is the personification of a true, self-made sensation who knew early on in her life that she was destined to work in the world of fashion and show business.

Born in Warsaw and raised in Chicago (with a strong will and little tolerance for the word "No"), she convinced her mother to move her and sister, Marta, to Los Angeles in order to pursue a career in modeling and acting.

Joanna is the most successful celebrity activist for PETA, has her own swimwear line with A ché swimwear, has graced over 120 covers worldwide, is a much feared poker player (hosted this years North American Poker Tour) and also has stunned the world as a talented dancer on "Dancing with the Stars."

Joanna's popularity has soared in recent years: she has been habitually voted among the "Sexiest Women in the World" and even coined "Sexiest Top Model in the World" by magazines across Australia, the U.S., South Africa, the United Kingdom, France and Germany.

In 2008, Joanna shines on the big screen in "Ripple Effect" with Oscar winners and nominees Minnie Driver, Virginia Madsen and Forest Whitaker. Joanna also appeared on hit TV shows such as "Las Vegas" and "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation."

In 2009, Joanna was cast for the ABC show "Superstars," where her on-screen verbal battles with teammate Terrell Owens were highly publicized. After her appearance, she landed covers of top tier magazines such as Maxim and Playboy. Joanna then tested out her dancing skills on "Dancing with the Stars" in which one routine with choreographer Derek Hough won an Emmy nomination.

TV Guide Channel then hired the eloquent blonde as a host for the show "411," where Joanna covered the entire season 12 of ABC's ratings giant "Dancing with the Stars." She also became a recurring guest on the Fox Business Channel, where she has been featured as a business spokesperson as well as for her work as a supermodel and activist.

The supermodel was announced as one of the new cast members on "The Real Housewives of Miami," which premiered on September 13, 2012. During her tenure on the show, she married Romain Zago, a Miami nightclub owner, after a five-year engagement.

Since 2010, Krupa has hosted and served as the head judge on the Polish version of Top Model.
