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.
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.
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.”
Watch Andy discuss the fight below.
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.
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:
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?
Another day, another drama! The week just wouldn’t be right without juicy gossip to discuss and we’re getting into it all in this episode of Did Y’all See? We’re sure you’re on pins and needles to find out what really went down during the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion just as much as we are, but this week we at least got another piece of the puzzle. TMZ released a video of Kenya calling 911 to report that she’d been hit in the head by Porsha Williams so, at the very least, we know a fight did go down. Now was it enough to warrant the police? Well, that remains to be seen.
What also remains to be seen is whether Mariah is going to continue to tolerate her juvenile husband acting a fool every chance he gets. From what he said about how she checked him, we’re going to assume that’s a no. Something we don’t have a clear answer on, though, is the case of Johran McCormick, the teen boy slain by the father of his girlfriend who claimed she didn’t know him. Should the girl be charged for his death? Is the father at fault? We’re discussing all that and more in the video above.
“The Truth Will Be Revealed Soon Enough”: Kenya Moore Speaks On Fight, Thanks #TeamTwirl For Support
We’ve heard from Porsha Williams as she ducked and dodged questions about her attack on Kenya Moore, and we’ve even heard from NeNe (while in a state of what seemed to be intoxication), who called her dumb, and called for her to be fired from RHOA for starting so much drama. Now, we’re hearing from Kenya Moore in full. While she posted a tweet the day after the fight to let people know how upset she was (“#teamtwirl one thing u will NEVER see me do is fight. Your brain and tongue are your most powerful weapons”), she went a little more in depth on the RHOA blog. She said that there have been fake photos running around (including pics of her scalp after having hair pulled out…) and lies being told on her, but that the truth about everything will be seen very soon:
As many of you may know there have been many rumors circulating with respect to the recent filming of the RHOA reunion last week. Although there have been untrue and inaccurate photos, stories and accounts circulating, the truth will be revealed soon enough. I want to thank the concerned fans that have sent their well wishes and love. I thank you all for your concern and support. I am in New York working hard on another exciting project with some amazing people who all rallied together and supported me amidst the rumors
Friendships are reciprocal. There will be moments when you disagree or cross a line and say or do something offensive or hurtful to someone you truly care about. With that said, it’s never appropriate to disrespect your friend’s husband by calling him a “bitch” or any derivative thereof. Cynthia would never call Gregg a bitch nor tell him he is acting like one-even if she believes that to be true. It’s clear that NeNe does not respect Cynthia’s feelings, her husband, or the boundaries in their five-year-old friendship.
Guess she’s got some friends on the Celebrity Apprentice set after all! But what do you think about what she had to say? Share your thoughts below.
Things have been pretty crazy since it was revealed on last season’s reunion special that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Kenya Moore and a very married Apollo Nida were exchanging inappropriate text messages behind his wife’s back. However, Phaedra feels that with the current season coming to a close, folks should probably give the whole textgate scandal a rest—especially considering that she says it happened nearly two years ago!
“It obviously is a television show, so it’s for entertainment and you don’t always get to see the full gamut of what truly goes on,” the “Secrets of the Southern Belle” author explained during an appearance on “Good Day Atlanta”. “Textgate happened in 2012. It’s 2014 and they are still trying to run that storyline.”
The mother of two, who seems to generally manage to stay calm, cool and collected, also hinted that Bravo producers continue to revisit the scandal because fellow RHoA star Kenya Moore doesn’t have much else going on in her life.
“Some of us on the show don’t have a lot going on outside of the show. Fortunately, I have several jobs, many careers and many degrees. So unlike some of the other ladies, my life is very full. So I don’t have to talk about something from two years ago constantly and obsess with foolery because I actually have things that I have going on.”
The reality star also discussed her etiquette book “Secrets of the Southern Belle” and what inspired her to write it.
“I think being a lady is definitely a lost art. But of course, being on my show, we see very bad behavior. With social media, all of the Twitter trolls and just people being mean, it seems more fashionable for ladies to be mean more so than nice. So I just thought it was refreshing to talk about being a lady and going back to some of the core values we used to really admire.”

By now we’ve heard from almost every Atlanta housewife about the Kenya/Porsha altercation. And now it’s NeNe’s turn. The RHOA star and “Dancing With The Stars” contestant was seen leaving Mr. Chow’s with Greg and she was clearly on one. So this was the perfect time for TMZ to ask her about the altercation during the reunion taping.
Here’s what NeNe had to say:
“Kenya’s stupid. She needs to fix her fake booty. They need to kick Kenya off with her dumb self. She (Porsha) shouldn’t get kicked off. What they need to do is kick Kenya’s fake booty off. Huuuhhh.”
“My husband doesn’t want me to school these girls… Hey Girls.”
Then switching gears, one paparazzi asked NeNe if she was going to take home the DWTS trophy. She said, honestly:
“I don’t know. You know what I do know, is I’m going to stick on for as long as I possibly can.”
And then they alley-ooped her the perfect opportunity to throw some shade at Wendy Williams. One man asked if she believed she’d last longer than Wendy did in the competition.
“Of course! Wendy has two left feet. I have a left and a right. That’s a problem when you have two left feet — you can’t dance on dance floors!”
Ha! NeNe is a hot mess but she stays coming with the punchlines. Check out the interview in the video below.
