Bravo star tells “The View’s” Sherri Shepherd that confrontation got physical because Moore provoked her with “super heavy” scepter and bullhorn
“Real Housewives” star Porsha Williams regrets attacking Kenya Moore during a recent reunion special, but she told “The View” Tuesday she was bullied and felt threatened by her use of so-called props on the reunion show.
Williams was shown pulling Moore’s hair during a violent reunion special that aired earlier this month.
“What made you go to the physical side of a brawl as opposed to verbally?” Sherri Shepherd asked Williams. “What happened?”
“All of the pressure that we normally go through on a reunion it was there!” Williams said. “She was provoking me then — and then this season, she had these weapons! What she called props! That’s the difference.”
Guest host John Leguizamo asked the “Real Housewives” star if she was considering suing back.
“The scepter she had was super heavy!” Williams noted.
“Did you feel she was provoked?” Shepherd asked co-star Nene Leakes, who was sitting in the audience with her “Dancing With the Stars” partner Tony Dovolani.
“I do feel she was provoked,” said Leakes, who’d join the panel earlier to discuss her elimination from “DWTS” Monday night.
“That’s not fun with the scepter and bullhorn?” Shepherd asked.
“It’s not fun!” Williams exclaimed. “I watched last Sunday’s episode with everybody else and it really did hurt me to see her say that she thought it was for fun or it was a joke.”
Shepherd said Williams knew what she signed up for when she went on the reunion.
“I tell you what, Sherri, I didn’t know I was signing up for a job to end up with a mugshot or to be bullied to that level,” she said. “This woman has bullied me and has shown hatred since day one and now she has weapons in her hand!”
