Kenya Moore Talks Porsha Williams Brawl

By: Kimberly Ripley - April 22, 2014

Kenya Moore opened up about the physical altercation between her and The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Porsha Williams that took place during a reunion taping that aired on Bravo Sunday evening. She shared her thoughts during an interview with PEOPLE magazine.

“There are many inflammatory statements made by cast members to and about each other particularly during the reunion tapings,” Moore said in a statement. “Many have made untrue, denigrating, disparaging, and inflammatory statements against me in an attempt to provoke me, but I have never reacted in a violent way.”

Moore was talking to Williams with a bullhorn during the show’s taping when she accused her of cheating on her ex. Porsha then pulled Kenya’s hair and the two women fell to the floor and tussled for a few seconds.

“If people get so angry that they lose control and admittedly ‘black out’ and resort to violence, those persons must be held responsible for their actions,” Moore added.

She also brought up her past–having been physically abused by a former boyfriend.

“After being repeatedly attacked by an abusive boyfriend at the age of 17, if someone puts their hands on me, I will not just let it go,” she says. “With that said, I sought self-defense training developed for the Israeli military. I’ve also been trained in weapons. I can take someone down in three moves. It took discipline for me to not respond in kind.”

Kenya Moore called 911 following the incident, which really didn’t require intervention by the authorities. Porsha Williams turned herself in to authorities on Thursday and was charged with battery.

“Although the claim is unfounded, Ms. Williams is fully cooperating with investigators and looks forward to clearing her name,” an attorney for Porsha Williams said in a statement.

“The authorities will decide her fate, not me,” Moore said.

Bravo host Andy Cohen asked Porsha to leave the set following the altercation. The second part of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion will air on April 27th sans Porsha Williams.

Who watches this stuff? Obviously a huge number of people tune in to these shows regularly or they wouldn’t stay on the air. Clearly there is very little that is “real” about these Real Housewives.

Will Kenya Moore forgive Porsha? Will Porsha ever return to The Real Housewives of Atlanta set? Will Andy Cohen set up a peacemaking session between the two ladies for airing at a later date?

If you truly care about any of the aforementioned situations, seek help immediately. There has to be a support group somewhere for people who watch this stuff.

For those headed to therapy today, do note that it is now rumored that Kenya Moore is now considering not returning for the next season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. That news is sure to set many who teeter on the edge of reality into a full-fledged tailspin.

    I’m glad Kenya is leaving. All she does is push everybody to there limits , then when she makes them fighting mad, and she can’t handle it, She calls 911 and has somebody locked up, or a back ground check. That’s is a lethal piece of poopoo. It’s no wonder she don’t have a man. Who would want a crazy hormonal instigator. Heck she’d have him fighting all her battles , and he’d be in jail. LOLThey need some nice smart woman. Porsha has bloomed into a beautiful lady, and I think Kenya is very Jealous of her.When Kenya gets jealous , she doesn’t have anything nice to say about that person, she is only happy when she’s lying about herself. .

    I’m glad Kenya is leaving. What an embarassment that she was crowned Miss USA. She wasn’t a relevant “star” prior to RHOA, just having bit pieces in movies here and there and the lead only in a couple. It was clear to me that she was attempting to create a most controversial role on RHOA and it just made her look extra evil.

    My hope is that Kenya leaves the show and takes Nene Leakes with her. They aren’t all that different and when they exit, they can take that bipolar, delusional Jackie Christie (BBWLA) with them. Poor Doug…

    Your articles asks “Will Andy Cohen set up a peacemaking session between the two ladies for airing at a later date?” Maybe the real question to ask Andy Cohen is why was Kenya was allowed to brandish a sceptre and use a bullhorn to talk over everyone and be allowed to provoke her fellow Housewives?

    I can’t stand her. I was always taught to walk away, not to fight. But I would have to at least slap her mouth! before walking. GOOD for Porsha, you can only push so much.
