Porsha Williams Apologizes For Reunion AttackBy: Ellisha Rader Mannering - May 1, 2014
Porsha Williams is apologizing for her recent fight on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. During the reunion, Williams and Kendra Moore were having an argument, when Williams took the fight to a physical level.
The attack was not easy to watch and it’s apparent that Williams wasn’t thinking clearly, but simply reacting in anger. Moore was waving a scepter and blow horn in Williams’ face and taunting her. Williams responded by grabbing Moore by the hair and pulling her across the set floor.
Williams has received a lot of criticism for attacking Moore and has finally decided to apologize for her behavior.
“I suffered severe bullying since I was a child, to the extent of contemplating suicide and was also physically and mentally abused in my marriage.”
“Throughout the season on ‘Real Housewives’ I was manipulated and bullied and at the reunion taping when emotions were heightened,” she said. “I was pushed too far with objects waved in my face and my personal space was continuously violated, and I reacted in a way which I am not proud of.”
Williams told several of her costars that she was embarrassed of her behavior and was afraid of how the world and her fans would feel about her after seeing the fight on the reunion show.
Fans reacted to the fight with mixed emotions. Many felt that Williams was provoked but most felt like the attack was uncalled for.
“Violence is not the answer and I want to apologize to my fans, the viewers and the other ladies for my behavior,” Williams said. “For the thousands of supporters that have stuck by me I thank you immensely and encourage you to donate to shelters for abused woman and support charities that stop bullying. As I mentioned on the show I am embarrassed of my reaction and the way that I handled the provocation and I am dedicated to helping others learn appropriate ways to cope with bullies and abusers and from this experience I hope to continue on a path of personal and spiritual growth.”
Do you think Williams’ apology was genuine and what did you think of her attack on Moore.
