You better respect her gangsta!
Today, “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star Porsha Williams turned herself into a local Atlanta police station after an arrest warrant was issued yesterday by Atlanta PD following her fight with Kenya Moore at the Bravo RHOA reunion special.
Williams, 31, the ex-wife of former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart, was booked and released at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta Wednesday, her rep told E! News. She left on a $2,000 bond, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“[Williams] is charged with one misdemeanor count of simple battery stemming from an incident that occurred during the taping of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ reunion episode,” Williams’ rep told E! News. “Although the claim is unfounded, Ms. Williams is fully cooperating with investigators and looks forward to clearing her name.”
The rep went on to say:
“Kenya had been pushing Porsha’s buttons and there was a lot of heated conversation back and forth between them,” a source told E! “Finally, Porsha stood up, which led Kenya to stand up. Porsha charged Kenya. There were a few moments of hair pulling, but it was broken up in a matter of seconds. No one dragged anyone across the floor. A producer, security and even [Andy] Cohen stepped in to quickly separate them. It was a joint effort. In the end, no one was hurt.”
PS: Ain’t that mug shot one of the fabulous mug you’ve seen in awhile, except for that Justin Bieber jail house shot!
When asked about what really happened between the ladies, Bravo’s executive producer Andy Cohen responded by saying:
“They stood up, I think I stood up pretty quickly. It was such a flash, and it started to escalate,” he said. “I was trying to prevent it, and a couple other people jumped in, too. To me, it came out of nowhere. The other women felt Kenya provoked her a bit. I was so shocked and surprised.”
He added, “I think it’s gross. And I think it just totally inappropriate. It’s wrong. It’s not entertaining. It’s just bad.”
DID YOU HEAR IT? Last month, Kenya’s rep denied that any brawl took place between the two stars. “Miss Moore was not engaged in any physical altercation,” her rep told ABC News. “She adamantly condones violence and would never be involved in such behavior.” Moore, 43, also tweeted, “one thing u will NEVER see me do is fight. Your brain and tongue are your most powerful weapons.”
Kandi Burruss also talked about the fight with Bethenny Frankel:
“It was a lot going on, I can’t tell you everything, but, you know, she [Williams] was … uh, pushed,” Burruss said. “Yeah, she definitely was provoked. I would think.”
The show’s reunion special airs this Sunday at 8 p.m., on Bravo.
