What Kenya Moore Is Saying About Last Night’s RHOA Reunion Show Brawl!
The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Kenya Moore took to Twitter during Sunday night’s episode of the hit reality show and commented on the cat fight that occurred between her and co-star, Porsha Williams.
“It’s sad to see the hate spread on Easter Sunday the day Christ died for our sins. To the people anticipating a “beating” I pity your souls.” Kenya wrote on the social media network.
Moore also released the following statement last night addressing the fight:
During the taping of the Reunion Episode for the Real Housewives of Atlanta, I was violently attacked by Porsha Williams. The episode, which aired tonight, Sunday, April 20, 2014, was taped in front of an audience of over 50 people, which included cast, crew, guests and executives, who served as witnesses. I called 911 to report the incident. The Atlanta police conducted an independent investigation, which included viewing the raw footage of the incident. As a result, Porsha Williams was charged with battery. The authorities will decide her fate, not me.
There are many inflammatory statements made by cast members to and about each other particularly during the reunion tapings. 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. My intellect and my brain are my most powerful weapons—not my fists. 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. Being a cast member on a reality show does not absolve people of their rights.
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. 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 not to respond in kind. As violent responses escalate, they can quickly result in severe injury or even death.
Being the second Black woman to be crowned Miss USA, there are little girls who look up to me. I would never want those girls, my nieces, or my future children to see me fighting anyone. That’s the lesson we should all want to send, especially to young people—that no matter how angry someone makes you feel by what they say to or about you, violence is never an option. #stoptheviolence
During last night’s airing of the Bravo show, fans finally got a chance to see the cat fight that occurred between Moore and Williams. According to Porsha, she had enough of Kenya’s shenanigans and just snapped after the former beauty queen called her a “dumb ho.”
After the mini brawl, host Andy Cohen talked in private with Porsha who said she was just overcome with emotion. “Just everything everywhere just hit me at one time. She’s bringing up stuff about Kordell, she is saying this she is saying that.”
She added, “I literally have taken so much from her for two years. I blacked out.”
That’s when Andy asked Williams to leave and not be part of the rest of the reunion show. “You understand that to get physical is not the way,” he told her. “I don’t think that you are ready for the rest of the day. I want you to go home and take care of yourself. At some point you need to apologize to her.”
As Moore stated, she did eventually press charges and a warrant was issued for Porsha’s arrest. On Wednesday, April 16, Williams turned herself into Fulton County Sheriffs and was booked on a simple battery, misdemeanor charge.
According to TMZ, Williams plans to go after Kenya and wants the D.A. to file felony aggravated assault charges against Moore.
