Everybody and their mama has an opinion about whether or not Porsha Williams should be let go from the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” cast following her physical reunion show altercation with co-star Kenya Moore. However, if Wendy Williams were running things over at Bravo, both Kenya and Porsha would be fired…along with Phaedra and Cynthia!

“If I were the queen of Bravo, Porsha, you would be fired,” Wendy said during yesterday’s airing of her show. “I feel like Porsha needs to go and that needs to be a lesson to all the ‘Housewives’ franchises everywhere—from the O.C. to New York to New Jersey. If you just fire one for the purpose of fighting, then no one else will ever fight on the shows.”

“And I don’t know if she’s been fired yet, but while you’re doing the firing, make sure you fire Phaedra, fire Cynthia and you know what, I’ll be honest, fire Kenya.”

Clearly, if it were up to Wendy, there’d barely be any housewives left.  Good thing Andy Cohen isn’t taking cues from her. But while she didn’t offer an exact explanation regarding why she wants Cynthia and Phaedra gone, she says she’s sick of Kenya’s lies.

“I’m gonna tell you why. As much as I love Kenya and I do adore Kenya—I’m not even talking about the fight yesterday—fire Kenya on account of anything she says you can’t believe. I would like to see some evidence of some sort of African prince,” Wendy explained. “There’s no evidence of any boyfriend. I think that she’s delusional and a liar… Just go! Bye, boo.”

As for Porsha, Wendy says that as a 30-something woman, she should know how to control her anger.

“If you are a grown person, then you know how to control your temper, so you would never cave in to Kenya because Kenya is trying to get you fired off the show.”

Check out Wendy discussing the altercation below. If you were the queen of Bravo, which RHOA cast members would you fire?

 

Porsha Williams’ Attorney Says Kenya Moore Was “Primary Aggressor” In Fight, Plans To Purse Felony Charges Against Her

Porsha and Kenya II

After Part I of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion, which included Porsha dragging Kenya Moore down by her hair, I’ve found quite a divide in people’s reactions to the whole messy scene. Many think that Moore pushed Williams one too many times and deserved what she got (this sentiment was felt by RHOA cast mates as well), while others thought Porsha acted out of control, and that trying someone doesn’t necessarily equal the right to dish out a butt whooping. Porsha Williams has remained quiet about everything, but her lawyer, Joe S. Habachy, told TheWrap that he and his client plan to pursue felony charges against Moore, and that SHE was the actual aggressor in the whole fight.

“Cast member Kenya Moore sought out the warrant and, although the claim is unfounded, Ms. Williams fully cooperated with investigators and looks forward to clearing her name.

Furthermore, several cast mates and witnesses report that it was clear that Kenya Moore was undoubtedly the primary aggressor in the incident. Thus, Ms. Williams, who has never been arrested before, intends to contest the pending misdemeanor and to pursue felony charges against Kenya for aggravated assault.”

But could Williams have had some things in her system that pushed her to behave in the manner in which she did that night? According to Radar Online, an insider at the reunion show claims she was drinking wine (and a lot of it) in her dressing room before the reunion show. While I don’t necessarily know if I believe all that, it could explain why she had that very emotional moment right after the scuffle, where she was crying and screaming on the ground. It was so bad that she needed to be consoled, and carried away, by members of her beauty team.

Porsha was drunk…  there were two bottles of wine in her dressing room. She came to fight Kenya and needed some liquid courage! 

She is very unstable. She’s been taking medications and mixing it with alcohol.

Bravo knows that she is now nothing but a liability. Her attack on Kenya failed, and she lost her mind. It’s all very sad.”

But whatever is going on with Williams, I think we all need to put aside our dislike of Moore and be honest in the fact that there was no reason for that attack. Annoying props or not (and shame on Bravo producers for allowing all that), it was just a poor choice by Williams, and whatever consequences there are, she will need to deal with them, learn and move forward.

But you share your thoughts on all of this below.

Kenya Moore Considering Leaving RHOA Behind Reunion Show Brawl

While it’s currently unclear whether or not Porsha Williams will be allowed to return to “Real Housewives of Atlanta” next season, according to the New York Daily News via The Associated Press, Kenya Moore is considering departing from the franchise following the highly publicized reunion show brawl.

“We all agree that we don’t condone violence,” Kenya said in an interview earlier today. “We’ve become angry with each other, we’ve threatened each other and gone to the edge. But at the end of the day, we know there’s a line. If there are no consequences, then where does it end?”

Though several cast members have expressed that they believed Kenya provoked Porsha just before the fight, Kenya says that Porsha was actually the one in position to do the provoking.

“I think Porsha was in a position to provoke me,” she added.

The former pageant queen went on to respond to Porsha’s claims that she “blacked out” due to Kenya’s taunting, insisting that Porsha should have been more well prepared to deal with whatever drama the reunion show presented.

“If anyone is capable of blacking out and not taking responsibility for their actions, they should not be in this type of environment,” she said. “They do not need a stage such as this.”

The ladies still have not spoken to one another since the incident, but from the looks of it, Kenya is expecting some sort of apology.

“She is a granddaughter of a civil rights leader,” Kenya said. “She does not have the tools to navigate this process. It’s just very unfortunate and sad. If I was in her position, the first thing I would do is apologize.”

Do you think Kenya would really leave the show?

Kenya Moore Releases Statement On RHOA Reunion Fight: My Intellect Is My Most Powerful Weapon — Not My Fists

Kenya Moore Releases Statement On RHOA Reunion Fight

Source: Instagram

Last night the world — or at least 3-4 million viewers or so — caught the disturbing RHOA reunion fight that went down between Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore. Prior to the viewing, we knew that Kenya had called the police on Porsha after the altercation and that last Thursday Porsha turned herself in to the authorities on charges of battery, but neither woman had spoken outright on the situation until now. This morning, Kenya decided to release a statement on the matter through her publicist, which reads:

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

While Kenya may be right about women needing to use more discipline in situations like this, is anyone else over her playing the victim when she continually provokes people to the point of violence? She may not have put her hands on anyone during the reunion taping, but I don’t think anyone would say she’s innocent. What do you think?

 

Mug Shot: Porsha Williams Turns Herself In To Fulton County Sheriff

Shortly after we told you that a warrant had been issued for the arrest of Porsha Williams yesterday, the newly divorced reality star turned herself in to the Fulton County Sheriffs Department.  According to TMZ, Williams was charged with simple battery, which is a misdemeanor. She was released shortly after surrendering to police on $2,000 bond, but not before she snapped one of the most glammed up looking mug shots we’ve ever seen.

In case you haven’t been keeping up with ratchet headlines over the past few weeks, the battery charge stems from an altercation that occurred between Williams and “Real Housewives of Atlanta” rival Kenya Moore at the reality series’ reunion show taping.

“Kenya brought sex toys to the reunion taping to taunt Porsha about Kordell’s sexuality and she couldn’t take it anymore,” an eyewitness recalled.

“Porsha beat the sh*t out of her! She is a little thing and she jumped on her and pulled her down to the ground by her hair, and Kenya doesn’t have a weave, it is all her own hair.”

“Porsha was sick of her saying that she was Kordell’s beard and those toys were the last straw. Porsha is a skinny thing but she was whopping her butt!”

As we’ve previously reported, Williams may not be the only one smiling for a mug shot camera. Word on the street is that she is pulling to have charges pressed against Moore as well.

Warrant Issued For Porsha Williams’ Arrest Behind “Real Housewives of Atlanta” Reunion Showdown

For weeks we’ve been discussing the fight that went down between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore at Bravo’s recent “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion show taping. Since news of the fight broke, several cast members and executives from the network have come forward to offer their two cents on the altercation. But now it appears that things are being taken a step further.

As you may recall, following the altercation, Moore called 911 and told the dispatcher that she’d been attacked by Williams. It was unclear what happened once authorities arrived to the scene. Well, until now that is. According to TMZ, Williams has been charged with assault because of the altercation and a warrant has been issued for her arrest.

Williams is apparently already aware of that warrant, however, and her attorney, Joe Habachy, says that she will turn herself in tomorrow. It also appears that this legal war won’t be a one-sided thing. It’s being reported that Williams’ defense team is requesting that the D.A. file felony aggravated assault charges against Moore.

We will continue to keep you posted as this story develops.

‘I Think It’s Gross:’ Andy Cohen Disgusted By RHOA Reunion Show Brawl

At this point, it’s been confirmed that a fight did in fact occur between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams at the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion show taping. What’s interesting though, are the reactions to the fight by the folks who witnessed it first-hand. As you may recall, Nene Leakes recently expressed that while she does not condone violence, Porsha was provoked.

“They welcome a good argument, that’s always good television,” the “Dancing With The Stars” contender explained. “But to touch each other is really crossing the line. But they did get in a physical altercation. I feel like one was provoked, the other one, knocked her out. Like, ‘provoke me, BOP!’”

Bravo VP of Development and Talent and reunion show host, Andy Cohen, recently commented on the fight as well.

“There was an altercation that took place between Kenya [Moore] and Porsha [Williams],” Andy said during an episode of AskAndy. “They stood up…I think I stood up pretty quickly. It was such a flash, and it started to escalate,” he continued. “I was trying to prevent it, and a couple other people jumped in too. To me, it came out of nowhere.”

Though talk of the fight appears to have fostered greater anticipation for the upcoming reunion show, Andy seems totally turned off by the whole thing.

“The other women felt Kenya provoked her a bit…I was so shocked and surprised and really upset,” he said. “I don’t want that to happen. I think it’s gross. And I think it’s just totally inappropriate. It’s wrong. It’s not entertaining. It’s just bad.”

“One Was Provoked”: NeNe Speaks On RHOA Reunion Fight Between Kenya And Porsha

RHOA fight

While chatting with VH1 Big Morning Buzz Live host Nick Lachey, and sitting next to her Dancing With The Stars partner Tony Dovolani, NeNe Leakes chatted about a little bit of everything with the men, including the scuffle between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams at the RHOA reunion taping. When asked what really happened, she said that a fight did happen, and stated that while some ‘reading’ and trash talk is okay, the ladies should never have ended up putting their hands on one another.

“Well, there was a physical confrontation that happened at the reunion. Listen, I don’t condone violence. I do condone a little reading and we can get in each other’s face and talk a little trash, but you need to keep your hands to yourself. But they actually touched each other. It actually got physical.”

When asked if the fight happened because the women were inebriated, NeNe laughed it off and said there actually wasn’t alcohol at the show. Instead, she says that one woman was provoked by another, and then things got ugly:

“No, we don’t have any drinks at our reunion show. They welcome a good argument, that’s always good television. But to touch each other is really crossing the line. But they did get in a physical altercation. I feel like one was provoked, the other one, knocked her out. Like, ‘provoke me, BOP!’”

NeNe also commented on Kenya Moore’s participation on Celebrity Apprentice upcoming season 14, saying that Donald will love her because she is a drama queen:

“I like Donald! He and I got along really really well…I think Kenya will bring a lot of drama and he loves a little drama. So I think she’ll bring a lot of drama to the show, so they’ll keep her around for the drama aspect. They have a lot of drama queens, honey.”

The other drama queens brought up for this new season of Celebrity Apprentice include RHOBH star Brandi Glanville (who Kenya Moore has issues with), Kate Gosselin, and Vivica A. Fox.

During Sunday night’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” there was a heartbreaking scene where Kenya Moore shared that her dog Velvet passed away after being viciously attacked by a neighbor’s dog. News of Velvet’s death was both terrifying and shocking and actually left some folks wondering whether or not the former pageant queen faked the dog’s death solely for the purpose of television ratings.

Kenya’s assistant, Bradon DeShazer, recently spoke out about the rumors and he insists that they’re absolutely “vile” and “irresponsible.”

“Anybody who has pets knows the kind of love you develop for them. To report that something like that would be staged … it’s disgusting,” Brandon told TMZ.

Brandon adds that Kenya is devastated over the “evil” reports. Say what you want about Kenya, but she definitely loved that dog.

Check out some never-before-seen footage of Kenya and Velvet during happier times.

#ulookdumb: Tamar Braxton Sends Lengthy Message To Side Chicks On Instagram

"Tamar Braxton pf"

WENN

I’m not 100 percent sure if there is anything going on in her relationship or if Tamar Braxton just wanted to call folks out for being messy (as she tried to do when she put Kenya Moore on blast not too long ago for her behavior with Apollo Nida, calling her “ratchet”), but she had a message to send on social media for side chicks, and women who let their friends get too comfortable with their man. On her Instagram, she had this to say in two posts that she put up last week and at the end of March:

Tamar Braxton side chicks

Instagram

Saw this & I had to Rp for the women who think this is cute… Just in case u r the BOMB or u #won cause u cheating with someone’s man…..U #LOST cause u must NOT be all that for a man NOT to claim you and respect&Love you to show you off to the world! However… U can always tell when a woman ain’t married! Only full time side chicks thinks like this!! How’s that working for you? #wakeup #ulookdumb#hesmashingbuthesgoinghome #dontbeaOLDhoe#ifhelikeitthenhewillputaringonit#hecanttakeuoutinpublic #somebodycouldgethurt#youwill #sitallthewaydown

She also posted this message below for women who are trying to keep their men. Basically, stop bringing all your friends around your man, because not everyone has good intentions:

#randombuttrue #theonesayingLordLordLord& BetHeMAINonetakingofftheydrawsDrawsDraws#dontbenofool #aftermidnight#ifyomamadontlikeherdontyou #stoptellingyobusiness#sitdown #enjoyYOman #shewill #buyloveandwartour #goodnight

Once again, I’m not sure where all of this is coming from, but she’s definitely making some sense. Could be based on rumors that her friends are dealing with cheating men (like her friend Tiny). Or maybe she’s going through something herself with Vince, but let’s hope not. Or maybe, just maybe, Tamar just likes to call out messy folks just because. Anywho, what do you think of the messages she had to share?
