Kenya Moore is finally breaking her silence after Porsha Williams’ violent outburst during the ‘RHOA’ reunion special, which aired on April 20. Kenya says in a new statement that violence is never OK and that Porsha should be held responsible for her actions.
It looks like Kenya Moore doesn’t regret her decision to press charges against her co-star Porsha Williams after their nasty physical fight during the taping of the Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion. Kenya is leaving things in the police’s hands, saying in a new statement on April 21, “The authorities will decide [Porsha’s] fate, not me.”
‘RHOA’ Kenya On Porsha’s Attack: She Should Take Responsibility For ‘Black Out’
Kenya clearly believes that Porsha needs help controlling her temper and she’s not about to let her co-star off the hook after Porsha’s rage “black out.”
“There are many inflammatory statements made by cast members to and about each other particularly during the reunion tapings,” Kenya tells People magazine in a new statement. “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.”
“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,” Kenya adds.
The whole ordeal has been particularly traumatic for Kenya because she has been a victim of abuse in the past.
“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,” she says. “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 to not respond in kind.”
We’re so glad Kenya didn’t let her fists fly — who knows how bad things could have gotten between these two!
‘RHOA’: Kenya Moore Would Drop Charges Against Porsha Williams On One Condition
Kenya had Porsha charged with misdemeanor battery after their shocking blowout, but a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Kenya would consider dropping the charges against Porsha — on one condition.
“If Porsha publicly came out and apologized to Kenya and really and genuinely said she’s sorry and meant it and said how she was wrong for putting her hands on Kenya, Kenya just might ask the charges be dropped,” the source revealed.
Kenya really just wants Porsha to own up for her “foul” behavior and promise to “never do such a thing again,” according to the source — which sounds like a reasonable request to us.
Do YOU agree with Kenya, HollywoodLifers? Should Porsha apologize and take responsibility for her violent outburst? Let us know!
