Porsha Stewart Turns Herself In On Battery WarrantBy: Amanda Crum - April 17, 2014
Porsha Stewart, one of the stars of The Real Housewives Of Atlanta, reportedly had a warrant out for her arrest on battery charges after she was involved in an altercation with another cast member, and turned herself in before being released on bond.
Stewart and Kenya Moore got into a fight during a reunion show which didn’t amount to much more than hair-pulling before it was broken up by producers and host Andy Cohen. However, some who were present felt like Moore provoked Stewart.
“It was such a flash,” Andy Cohen said. “And it started to escalate, and then I was trying to prevent it, and a couple other people jumped in, too. To me, it came out of nowhere. The other women felt like Kenya provoked [Porsha] a bit…I was so shocked and surprised. I don’t want that to happen. I think it’s gross. And I think it’s just…it’s totally inappropriate, it’s wrong, it’s not entertaining. It’s just bad.”.
It’s been rumored that Porsha has been asked to leave the show for good, although nothing has been confirmed.
“Porsha Williams will be voluntarily appearing for processing at the Fulton County jail in Atlanta, Ga., tomorrow. We anticipate that she will post a bond and be released shortly thereafter,” her rep said on Wednesday. “She is charged with one misdemeanor count of simple battery stemming from an incident that occurred during the taping of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion episode. Cast member Kenya Moore sought out the warrant and, although the claim is unfounded, Ms. Williams is fully cooperating with investigators and looks forward to clearing her name.”
The show was taped on March 27 and hasn’t aired yet, but there are a few sneak peeks of the reunion episode up online.
