Kenya Moore Releases Statement After Porsha Stewart’s Attack On The RHOA Reunion

RHOA reunion

So was Porsha Williams' assault on Kenya Moore what you pictured after all of the rumors and speculation leading up to it? Sunday night we finally got to see the insanity that was the entire first installment of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. It was krayonce for lack of a better word.

While Kenya was was owning the stage with her scepter and bullhorn, everyone, including Porsha, was giggling. Well, no one was laughing when Porsha lost her cool and went after Kenya. I doubt Porsha was laughing either when she was booked for assault.  


As Cynthia Bailey cried and NeNe Leakes sat speechless for probably the first time in her life, the fight escalated. Now Kenya is speaking out, and Us Weekly has the interview she gave to the Associated Press. Of disagreements and drama on the show, Kenya explains, "We all agree that we don't condone violence. 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."

Kenya continues, "If there are no consequences, then where does it end? I think Porsha was in a position to provoke me." Porsha was the one with the bullhorn…oh wait.

Disputing Porsha's claims that she blacked out before the brawl, Kenya responds, "If anyone is capable of blacking out and not taking responsibility for their actions, they should not be in this type of environment. They do not need a stage such as this," adding, "It's just very unfortunate and sad. If I was in her position, the first thing I would do is apologize."

In a statement obtained by Starcasm, Kenya shares, "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."

She concludes, "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…​"

While I agree with what Kenya has to say, I don't think she totally blameless…no one should ever resort to violence, but the bullhorn wasn't a nice move either.
