The Atlanta reality star breaks her silence on the violent reunion attack on her castmate
Porsha Williams is finally speaking out after her attack on castmate Kenya Moore on “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion.
On Part 1 of the three-part reunion special, Moore taunted Williams with the use of props — a scepter and a megaphone — in addition to the verbal assaults each woman hurled at each other.
In the end, Williams grabbed Moore’s hair and dragged her across the set. After Moore broke free, Williams fell to the floor sobbing and said she couldn’t believe she had become violent while several castmates tried to console her.
“It was so emotional,” Williams told Access Hollywood Live. “And when I hit that floor and I started screaming and NeNe [Leakes] was holding my mouth, [Phaedra Parks] standing there, it was like sisters because this show is difficult for all of us.”
Williams went on to describe how Moore was never part of that sisterhood and about the treatment she had suffered from Moore during the show.
“When they saw me on the floor and they knew what I had taken from her,” Williams said, “and they knew the bullying she had put me through for two years straight.”
As a result of the attack, Williams was sent home from the reunion. An arrest warrant would be issued for her a few weeks later. Williams surrendered to authorities and was charged with simple battery.
Williams will continue to tell her side of the story when the rest of her interview with “Access Hollywood Live” airs on Tuesday, in addition to appearing on ABC’s “the View” on Tuesday.
Last week, Moore addressed the fight, saying “no matter how angry someone makes you feel by what they say to or about you, violence is never an option.”
