Yesterday while appearing on The View, Porsha called Kenya's scepter and bullhorn "weapons". Porsha claimed the scepter was "super heavy" and could knock someone out (as could Porsha's brand new balloons apppprrrntly) and furthermore said scepter was being waved in her face. Well, of course Kenya is calling BS on that ridiculous claim.
Things haven't been going in Apollo Nida's favor as of late, that's for sure, but could a potential conviction put a kink in wife Phaedra Parks' lifestyle? It's bad enough she may lose her husband to the clink, but what if his alleged actions also put her assets in jeopardy?
We all know the Real Housewives of Atlanta star has a good (and super sassy) head on her shoulders, and as a lawyer she knows how to keep her business from co-mingling with that of her husband's. That knowledge could serve her well in the event he has to serve time. Plus, she's got that mortuary science degree working for her, right?
Kordell initially told Access Hollywood simply that Porsha's tales were false. As the story has spread, he was compelled to release a full statement to the media via his rep, slamming her for using him to try to stay relevant.
Kordell shared, "I married my wife because she was a Godly woman who had accepted her calling as a minister. The bright lights made Porsha lose her way. I no longer know the person she has become. I hope and pray she can turn her life around soon. I loved my wife, supported her and invested in her success."
We're going to get a behind-the-scenes look at Kandi's bachelorette party, Todd's bachelor party (hosted by Apollo Nida and Kirk Frost), the drama with Mama Joyce, their prenup agreement negotiations, the wedding preparation and much, much more! Todd is even shown taking advice from Apollo. Lord help that man.
The show is going to premiere on June 1st. It's shaping up to be a fun summer, y'all!
I say "final" statement because this is the last we're going to share on this. It seems the family of Gayla St. Julien isn't on the same page in regard to her quotes about the case and her position on Apollo Nida's guilt, etc, so we're posting this last statement for fairness' sake and that's that. The previous statement we shared came from Gayla's God daughter. This new statement is from "the family of Gayla". We're posting it in its entirety – grammar mistakes are not ours. And sorry about the caps, but I wasn't about to rewrite that whole statement.
After this many years, I'm surprised that the ladies of The View STILL talk over each other non-stop, despite that being the #1 complaint about the show. Today was no exception when Porsha Williams stopped by to chat about theReal Housewives of Atlanta reunion fight. They could use a little Heather Dubrow scolding about letting people finish talking!
They saved Porsha's segment until the very end and it was pretty much what we expected, just a lot of why she shouldn't have done it, but defending why she did. She is asked what was it about that moment that made her get physical with Kenya instead of being verbal like in the past? "A good example is last season I went to the reunion at that time I was going through a divorce (about to) and all the pressure we normally go through at a reunion it was there. She was provoking me then and she said I was cheating last season. And the difference this season, she had these weapons, what I call them, some say props. She said she was playing. That's really the difference, honestly."
Porsha sat down with Access Hollywood and claims that Kordell physically abused her during their marriage – more than once.
She explained, "The video ["Flatline"] does touch on domestic violence and some abuse I encountered in my marriage. It’s not exact to what I went through, because, honestly, what I went through was a little bit worse in some instances.”
Porsha stopped by Access Hollywood Live — first reported by US Weekly — for an interview that is set to air on Tuesday, April 29. For anyone who saw the fight break-out, it truly did look like Kenya was provoking Porsha until she finally broke. And break she did, grabbing Kenya by the hair, pulling her down and then hysterically crying after being pulled apart. But provoked or not, the RHOA star still felt bad, knowing it should not have come to that.
