That Kenya Moore has brass… balls? Doesn’t really apply here, but the Hotlanta lady is certainly bold. During her one-on-one with Andy Cohen on May 11, Kenya broke down the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion fight between herself and Porsha Williams, and she had a lot to say about how both Andy and production handled the mess.
“I don’t think you’ll even air it because it’s too honest,” Kenya begins to the Watch What Happens Live host. “First off, the way that [Porsha] fell to the ground, screaming and kicking like a 2-year-old, after she attacked me. Then, to be constantly treated like a baby, coddled, and treated like this wounded little bird — when that wounded little bird grabbed me by my hair and pulled me to the ground ... That is not a wounded person that’s been bullied. That is a person who intentionally came to do harm.”
We can see Kenya’s point here. It did seem like all of the Housewives (barring Cynthia Bailey) rushed to Porsha’s side just moments after she attacked the former Miss USA. Don’t underestimate the power of a good tear-filled breakdown.
Kenya also isn’t buying Porsha’s claims that she was bullied into the act, saying, “You were bullied? Well, were you bullied when you posted a photo of me on Instagram and said to blame my doctor a day after my dog died? … Were you bullied when you called me a tramp and everything else?”
She then points out that “Gone With the Wind Fabulous” was born from Porsha’s comments against Kenya, and Bravo cues up the playback of Porsha calling Kenya “ashy,” a “low class w—e,” and a “stupid, curb ass bitch.”
“She’s always been aggressive towards me,” Kenya insists. “But people don’t remember those, or they refuse to see those things. So when you say ‘I was bullied’ … How does a 32-year-old woman on a reality show that has a mouth the size of her mouth ever say that she was bullied?”
The pageant queen then boldly puts Andy on the spot himself, detailing the ways that both he and production skewed on Porsha’s side for the final cut:
“To show flashbacks supporting that [she was bullied], that tempered the audience’s reaction … Had you leveled the playing field, had you shown the flashbacks of her being aggressive toward me… then you wouldn’t have gotten the reaction that you did. You stacked the deck of cards against me.”
Dayum, girl! Nobody ever accuses Andy of such a thing (except for the Bravo departed Jill Zarin and we all know what happened there). But despite the heat, Andy did seem to listen to and acknowledge Kenya’s feelings, so perhaps he understands?
