Even though your DVR claimed there was a two hour season finale of Real Housewives of Atlantatonight, it was really just an hour and thirty minutes long, topped off with an episode of Watch What Happens Live. Sneaky way to again claim RHOA's ratings as WWHL ratings, too? Anywhoo… Andy sits down one-on-one with Porsha Williams to chat about the reunion brawl with Kenya Moore and her abuse claims regarding Kordell Stewart and she calls Kenya out for lying about being the first black Miss USA winner.
Porsha says she's been in contact with Phaedra, Kandi and NeNe since everything went down, but she hasn't heard from Cynthia.
Andy wants to know what her cast mates had to say to her. "Phaedra was just really upset. These girls know me now at this point. I've been their friend for two years straight, so for them to see me act completely out of character and let Kenya win like that. That was the main thing, I was sorry that it had to reach that point, I was sorry that that was my reaction, but more than that I was sorry that I gave her the power to make me go and do something like that."
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.
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."
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.
Last night was the second installment in the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Andy Cohen started off by exonerating Bravo from liability by repeating like a broken record that they do not condone violence. Why? Because Porsha Stewart was sent home like a naughty schoolgirl. I wish someone would have actually sent Porsha back to school, but that's an entirely different story…
Remaining on the stage is hair-tug victim, Kenya Moore. She feels vindicated and not at all responsible for Porsha's outburst. She was just having a little fun with her props. She actually said she was just having a good time. Krayonce's definition of "fun" is just as crazy as the rest of her.
"We fight with our words, I am one of the best at it," Kenya boasted. So good you got beat? Literally. Kenya cites last season in Anguilla when she launched into a tizzy of shrieking 'Gone with the wind fabulous!' as evidence of her masterful UN diplomat-level discourse. Miss Twirl On This obviously forgot the part where NeNe Leakesliterally held her back during that altercation. Detail, smetails!
Despite their friendship contract, the relationship between NeNe Leakes and Cynthia Bailey seems beyond repair, and rumors of who will return (and who will get axed) next season are running rampant, as they always do at around the reunion episodes. I don't know about y'all, but my head is still spinning!
