Kenya Moore Says She May Not Return to Real Housewives of Atlanta After Reunion Brawl With Porsha Williams
Kenya cares enough to walk away. Real Housewives of Atlanta firebrand Kenya Moore says in a new interview that she's considering leaving the Bravo reality show after her reunion brawl with castmate Porsha Williams was televised Sunday, April 20.
"We all agree that we don't condone violence," Moore told the Associated Press of Williams (formerly Porsha Stewart) on Monday. "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?"
The RHOA's reunion taping took place on March 27. During part one of the Bravo series' always-combative reunion special, the two arch-nemeses are seen hurling insults at each other. As the altercation escalates, Williams hovers over Moore, yanks her hair, and drags her across the floor.
Andy Cohen later recalled the melee on an episode of Ask Andy and described it as "gross." The Bravo host said, ""To me, it came out of nowhere. The other women felt like Kenya provoked [Porsha] a bit...I was so shocked and surprised. I don't want that to happen."
Williams, for her part, turned herself in to the Fulton County Sheriff last Wednesday, after a warrant was issued for her role in the attack. Primped and ready for her mugshot, Williams was booked and released on a simple battery misdemeanor charge. Before the reunion special was taped in late March, Williams stopped by Us Weekly's NYC headquarters and said, "Kenya has been jealous of me from the beginning and even now."
"I think Porsha was in a position to provoke me," Moore told the AP on Monday.
"If anyone is capable of blacking out and not taking responsibility for their actions, they should not be in this type of environment," Moore added of Williams' claim that she had "blacked out" during the brawl. "They do not need a stage such as this."
The former Miss USA said that it is ultimately up to producers of the smash series to decide on Williams' fate on the Housewives of Atlanta. "She is a granddaughter of a civil rights leader," Moore said of Porsha, whose grandfather was activist Hosea Williams. "She does not have the tools to navigate this process."
Moore added, "It's just very unfortunate and sad. If I was in her position, the first thing I would do is apologize."
