Porsha Williams: “I Didn’t know I Was Signing Up On A Job To End Up With A Mug Shot”
Porsha Williams stopped by ABC’s The View on Tuesday morning and opened up about the Real Housewives of Atlanta brawl that will go down in the books as one of the top housewife moments of all time.
“This season, the difference is that she had these weapons, what I call, she called props—the scepter and the blow horn—and that’s really the difference, honestly,” Porsha said about co-star, Kenya Moore, who used “props” that seemingly prompted Williams to snap.
In case you missed it, Porsha and Moore got into a physical altercation during the taping of the reunion show. Following the catfight, Kenya pressed charges and a warrant was issued for Porsha’s arrest. The reality star turned herself into law enforcement earlier this month and was charged with simple battery.
“Well, just like everybody else who gets charged with something like that, I have to go to court … It’s very unfortunate,” Williams told the hosts.
It’s no secret that reality shows are full of drama, so when The View co-host, Sherri Shepherd reminded Porsha that she knew what she signed up for, Williams responded:
“I didn’t know that I was signing up on a job to end up with a mug shot, or to be bullied to that level. This woman has bullied me and shown hatred from day one and now she has weapons in her hand,” she said. “It was a horrible moment for me and immediately I was embarrassed. I struggled from high school, elementary school, about bullying.”
RHOA veteran co-star, NeNe Leakes, who has admitted to being #TeamPorsha, was in the audience during the show and chimed in when discussing the brawl. When asked why she covered Williams’ mouth after the hair pulling, NeNe explained that it was to help her friend and co-star.
“Well, I knew Porsha was distraught, I knew that Porsha screaming saying that ‘I can’t believe I did that’ I just wanted Porsha to not say anything else.”
Part 3 of the reunion show airs Sunday night at 8 p.m on Bravo.
