Many viewers believe that Kenya Moore's use of props helped to provoke Porsha Williams
In the wake of Porsha Williams’ attack on Kenya Moore during Bravo's “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion, host Andy Cohen has declared “no more props.”
He made the decree on Twitter on Monday.
“It's official – no more props at reunions,” he wrote.
Many viewers have argued that Moore provoked Williams with not just her words but also her use of props – in this case, a scepter and a megaphone.
As a result of the attack, an arrest warrant was issued for Williams last Wednesday. She surrendered to authorities and was released on a $2,000 bond later that same day after being charged with simple battery.
Last Thursday, Williams’ attorney said that they will file aggravated assault charges against Moore.
Bravo declined to comment on the fight, which aired on Sunday and resulted in Williams being asked to leave the reunion.
The fallout from the incident will air during Part 2 of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion airing Sunday at 8 p.m.
The feedback to Cohen's “no more props” tweet were both supportive and critical. Read a selection of the responses below:

@Andy should have never let Kenya have them last year or this year. She looks like an idiot using them anyways. Don't care for her
