Real Housewives of Atlanta star Kenya Moore opens up about the attack she suffered at the hands of co-star Porsha Williams. The two women were attending the reunion show taping when the brawl broke out. During the attack, Moore was dragged across the floor by her hair.
In a statement released by the Real Housewives of Atlanta star, Moore said, “I was violently attacked by Porsha Williams. I called 911 to report the incident. The Atlanta police conducted an independent investigation, which included viewing the raw footage of the incident.”
As a result of the attack on Moore, Porsha Williams was charged with battery and a subsequent arrest warrant was issued. In Moore’s statement, she said, “The authorities will decide her fate, not me.”
“After being repeated attacked by an abusive boyfriend at the age of 17, if someone puts their hands on me, I will not just let it go.” Moore also accused Williams of making “untrue, denigrating, disparaging and inflammatory statements” about her throughout the season of Real Housewives of Atlanta.
Moore’s statement continued, “I have never reacted in a violent way. My intellect and my brain are my most powerful weapons, not my fists. If people get so angry that they lose control and admittedly ‘black out’ and resort to violence, those persons must be held responsible for their actions. Being a cast member on a reality show does not absolve people of their rights.”

Being a cast member on a reality show does not absolve people of their rights.”
“Being the second black woman to be crowned Miss USA, there are little girls who look up to me. I would never want those girls, my nieces, or my future children to see me fighting anyone. That’s the lesson we should all want to send, especially to young people, that no matter how angry someone makes you feel by what they say to or about you, violence is never an option. #stoptheviolence.”
