If you ask us, Porsha Williams has never been more exciting than she is right now. The newly-single gal continues to be linked to famous faces, has a budding (and viable) music career, and is finally speaking up for herself against her co-stars. But rumors that the Real Housewives of Atlanta star is on the chopping block for Season 7 persist. And now some are saying that her recent brawl with Kenya Moore at the reunion was all to secure her role.

According to Hollywood Life sources, Porsha thought instigating the hair-pulling match with Kenya — which reportedly happened after the former Miss USA’s implied that Porsha was ex Kordell Stewart’s beard — would bring good ratings and help her to keep her Housewife title.

“Porsha’s not at all violent like that, she’s just trying to keep her gig by all means necessary,” the insider tells the site. “She thinks Kenya is an easy target and went after her because she thinks she can hang with her if it came down to it.”

Hey, whatever the motivation, it seems to be working. The reunion doesn’t air until April 20, but the alleged fight has been all anyone can talk about since last week’s taping.

But Porsha’s decision to face off with Kenya will never be replicated with some of her more dominant co-stars — namely current ally and Queen Bee NeNe Leakes.

“NeNe done said crazy s—t about Porsha but she wouldn’t dare step to NeNe on her absolute best of best days,” the source explains. “She knows she would get laid out.” #Truth.

We will have to wait a couple of weeks to see what really happened between the ladies, but we’re not sure that we buy that Porsha would have to fake her aggression against Kenya. Just sayin’.
