Porsha Stewart Finally Apologizes For Reunion Brawl: “I Was Bullied”
Kenya Moore may still be waiting for a personal apology from her Real Housewives of Atlanta co-star, Porsha Williams, but Porsha has now issued a general apology statement to her fans, viewers, and fellow Hotlanta gals. So in a roundabout way, she has told Kenya she's sorry? During an exclusive interview with Us Weekly, Porsha opened up about what led to her violent outburst and the regret she now feels over her actions.
"I suffered severe bullying since I was a child, to the extent of contemplating suicide and was also physically and mentally abused in my marriage," Porsha explained, adding, "Throughout the season on Real Housewives I was manipulated and bullied and at the reunion taping when emotions were heightened, I was pushed too far with objects waved in my face and my personal space was continuously violated, and I reacted in a way which I am not proud of."
Despite pointing the finger at Kenya's props this time, though, Porsha takes full responsibility for her behavior and acknowledges that it is inexcusable.
"Violence is not the answer and I want to apologize to my fans, the viewers and the other ladies for my behavior. For the thousands of supporters that have stuck by me I thank you immensely and encourage you to donate to shelters for abused women and support charities that stop bullying. As I mentioned on the show, I am embarrassed of my reaction and the way that I handled the provocation and I am dedicated to helping others learn appropriate ways to cope with bullies and abusers and from this experience I hope to continue on a path of personal and spiritual growth," she concluded.
