Christy McGinity Gibel of Little Women: LA will be feeling the effects of a nasty bar fight last weekend for months to come.

Gibel was reportedly brutally attacked by two of her castmates while filming for Season 4 of her reality show over the weekend at Borderline Bar & Grill in Thousand Oaks, California. The two castmates involved have not been named, but they did some serious damage: Gibel suffered two brain contusions.

Show producers confirmed that Gibel got checked out at an urgent care clinic immediately following the incident, but when her headache wouldn’t go away, she checked herself into Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.

TMZ caught up with Gibel's husband Todd outside of the hospital.

"As far as what happened Christy, she suffered a trauma to her head," he said. "She's in Cedars right now — this happened a few days ago. She was suffering severe headaches and unfortunately, we just found out that these headaches could last for weeks, possibly months.

"She thought this was something — bump on the head, OK, I got a knot, goes away, everything's fine — but it's not showing any signs of going away."

Details on the attack are sketchy, but alcohol does not appear to be a factor — witnesses say everyone was drinking nothing more than iced tea. Plus, Gibel has been sober for years — six, to be exact, according to a recent Instagram post.
