The former The Real Housewives of Miami beauty travelled to the Holy Land last week (ends07Aug15) and was part of a religious ceremony in the Jordan River, where Jesus Christ himself is said to have been baptised, over the weekend (08-09Aug15).

Explaining the reasoning for her trip, the practising Catholic tells the New York Post, "I did it because, as a baby, your parents decide if you would be baptised. As an adult I wanted to confirm my beliefs and to show thanks for my life and everything I have accomplished.

"I wanted to do it as a cleansing, especially when I am in a very spiritual, special holy place like Israel. It is a celebration of my life and being thankful and accepting it as an adult and vowing to be a better person."

Krupa isn't the only star to be baptised in Israel - earlier this year (15), Kim Kardashian and her rapper husband Kanye West travelled to Jerusalem, where their two-year-old daughter North was baptised.
