Hope you tore yourself away from that Easter ham to catch tonight’s “Reunion, Part 1” episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta, because it contained that moment we’ve anticipated for weeks: Porsha Stewart and Kenya Moore’s epic brawl. So how did it really go down? And were those rumored sex toys involved?
As to the sex toys question — if you remember, blogs were saying Kenya taunted Porsha with the props for being a “beard” to ex Kordell Stewart — that’s a negative. The actual issues began when the former Miss USA implied that Porsha getting divorced last year was “karma” for the judgment she’d directed towards Kenya in the past.
Porsha would not hear that, however, and called Kenya out on playing the victim. “You have been the villain since day one,” she insisted. “You have laughed at me and Phaedra — and any other woman on this sofa who you have been threatened by from the very beginning. Now, you’re the victim. That’s really confusing to me.”
“I will never claim to be anybody’s victim,” Kenya quipped back. The two fired insults back and forth, before Kenya took it to a new level by claiming that — get this — Porsha cheated on Kordell!
“You are not going to keep on talking about my character like you know what you’re talking about,” Porsha exclaimed, before adding, “You’re a slut from the 90s!”
That’s when Kenya grabbed her bullhorn (which replaced that earlier scepter prop) and shouted, “You are a dumb ho, shut up!” through its loudspeaker. And all hell broke loose…
The two jumped up (anyone see Cynthia Bailey’s nip slip when she backed out of the way here?!) and got in one another’s faces. Andy Cohen tried to intervene, but it was too late.
“I will f— you up!” Porsha yelled, and next thing we knew she’d grabbed Kenya by the hair (weave, wig, what have you) and dragged her to the ground! As shocking as this was, Kenya was up and fine within moments, though Porsha remained on the ground crying in embarrassment.
“You’re gone! She should be fired,” Kenya demanded, seemingly to the Bravo cameras and Andy. After a few moments, the twirling diva grabbed her pal Miss Lawrence and the two stormed off-set, with her yelling, “I’m not going to sit here and get hit by somebody on TV! I’m done! She goes or I go!”
Luckily for Porsha, who was still sobbing on the floor, she had her fellow Housewives Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes and Phaedra Parks surrounding her in support, and attempting to calm her down.
“I can’t believe I did that! I have embarrassed myself!” she cried, as Phaedra and NeNe convince her that it’s going to be alright. She eventually calmed herself with a hug from Phaedra, and said “I’m sorry.”
From there, a Bravo staffer carried her out, with her still in tears saying “I can’t believe that ratchet hoe made me go there!”
So yea, it was everything you thought it was going to be and more. Though it flew by in a flash, it’s still pretty jarring to see that sort of violence happen! We don’t know who to side with on this one…
