Porsha Williams’ Lawyer Speaks Out + Nene Blames Kenya Moore For Altercation



By now everyone has seen the physical altercation that happened between Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams on the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion.  Unfortunately Porsha snapped and viciously attacked Kenya after being repeatedly taunted and insulted. Some people think Porsha should have shown more self-control instead of yanking Kenya’s hair; while others admit that they would have handled the situation in same way if it happened to them.



Attorney Joe S. Habachy said, “Cast member Kenya Moore sought out the warrant and, although the claim is unfounded, Ms. Williams fully cooperated with investigators and looks forward to clearing her name.”


The attorney also pointed out the fact, most of the cast members felt as though Kenya was the aggressor of the altercation.

“Furthermore, several cast mates and witnesses report that it was clear that Kenya Moore was undoubtedly the primary aggressor in the incident. Thus, Ms. Williams, who has never been arrested before, intends to contest the pending misdemeanor and to pursue felony charges against Kenya for aggravated assault.”




Many of the RHOA’s cast has come to Porsha’s defense. Nene blames Kenya’s rash behavior as the main culprit. Kandi spoke out about the fight on The Bethenny Show, she said that Kenya was edging the fight on. Phaedra Parks also said that Kenya’s actions leading up to the altercation, caused Porsha to react.

Read Kenya Moore’s official statement to the media below:

During the taping of the Reunion Episode for the Real Housewives of Atlanta, I was violently attacked by Porsha Williams. The episode, which aired tonight, Sunday, April 20, 2014, was taped in front of an audience of over 50 people, which included cast, crew, guests and executives, who served as witnesses. 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, Porsha Williams was charged with battery. The authorities will decide her fate, not me.
There are many inflammatory statements made by cast members to and about each other particularly during the reunion tapings. Many have made untrue, denigrating, disparaging, and inflammatory statements against me in an attempt to provoke me, but 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.
After being repeatedly attacked by an abusive boyfriend at the age of 17, if someone puts their hands on me, I will not just let it go. With that said, I sought self-defense training developed for the Israeli military. I’ve also been trained in weapons. I can take someone down in three moves. It took discipline for me not to respond in kind. As violent responses escalate, they can quickly result in severe injury or even death.
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
