On Sunday night, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” fans watched as Porsha Williams grabbed Kenya Moore and dragged her onto the floor. The explosive reunion show may be the last time Williams is seen on the program, as fighting is strictly forbidden on the hit Bravo series.
Prior to the fight, Moore and Williams verbally attacked one another, with Moore even speaking to Williams through a portable loudspeaker. But what seemed to bring Williams to physically attack the former Miss USA was her talking about Williams’ divorce and accusing her of cheating. This season, audience viewers watched as Williams went through a divorce from former NFL player Kordell Stewart.
The youngest castmate and her former quarterback husband were married for two years. In court documents, he said the marriage was "irretrievably broken." Williams had repeatedly defended her husband on the reality TV show, though castmates including NeNe Leakes constantly accused Stewart of being too controlling and demanding.
During the reunion Sunday night, Moore accused Williams of cheating on her then-husband, which infuriated her. “Listen, you are not going to keep on talking about my character like you know what you’re talking about,” Williams said moments before standing up and grabbing Moore.
Meanwhile, last week, NeNe Leakes set the record straight about recent reports that she and the rest of the “RHOA” cast threatened to quit the show if Williams gets fired as a result of her role in the altercation.
Leakes spoke with Essence magazine about the rumors. “I don't know where that came from," she said. "I've never said that. We don't group up together to do much. You know all of us aren't goosing up together to be going to bat for Porsha. We don't collectively do anything. But I will say this: I don't think that Porsha deserves to get fired based on the fight with Kenya. I do think she was on the chopping block before she got into the fight. Fighting Kenya did not help her case.”
The second half of the reunion show airs on Sunday.
