Poor Brandon DeShazer. All he did was accompany his friend and employer Kenya Moore to NeNe Leakes’ Pillow Talk Party on last Sunday’s episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and somehow he left the festivities with torn silk pajamas and a cracked rib.
In case you missed it, Brandon got himself involved in a scuffle with Phaedra Parks’ husband Apollo Nida. It all started when Natalie and Christopher Williams mentioned Kenya’s comment about their “common law” marriage, which caused Kenya to get up out of her seat and approach Christopher. When Christopher put his hand on Kenya’s arm, Brandon came to her defense and then everything went crazy. Before long, Brandon was laying on a bean bag chair getting kicked and punched by Apollo.
Since the brawl, Brandon has received a ton of well wishes from fans and friends, but RHoA stars NeNe and Cynthia Bailey have blamed Kenya for the beatdown. Kenya doesn’t understand how she can be held responsible for this whole mess (and frankly we don’t think it was all her fault either), but she’s chosen to steer clear of the petty chatter and just support her pal instead.
The “Gone With the Wind Fabulous” gal took to Instagram to praise Brandon. She shared a picture of the two of them looking gorgeous on a red carpet and wrote, “#myhero @brandondeshay #onlyrealmanintheroom #truefriend #mybabybrother.” We think “hero” might be taking it a bit too far, and there was certainly a lot of testosterone in the hotel suite that night, but it’s clear that B is a true friend to Kenya — he got beat up trying to defend her!
Kenya continued to gush about Brandon in her BravoTV.com blog from this week, writing, “Brandon did exactly what he was supposed to do and that is to protect me. NO MAN SHOULD EVER PUT HIS HANDS ON A WOMAN. For that, he is my hero. He is more of a man than any of the husbands that were in that room.”
Those are powerful words coming from Ms. Moore, seeing as we all know she isn’t an easy lady to impress!
