Bravo knows the prefect dramatic recipe to ensure a rise in ratings for its hit “Real Housewives” franchise: create an event, give it a theme, add a ton of free booze, and most importantly, be certain one of the ladies is feeling a certain way about something someone else said – and let’s fight about it!
This week’s episode of “Real Housewives of Atlanta” saw the ladies come together for a “Bachelorette” boat party, where Kenya Moore exchanged words with Shamea Morton, (a pal of Porsha Williams), over some unsavory comments she made during Moore’s hair care launch party. Always the instigator that Kenya – and never one to resist stirring up drama – when Shamea didn’t back down to Kenya’s reprimand, the former pageant girl threatened to have Morton kicked off the boat.
Meanwhile, Cynthia Bailey attempted to calm Moore down, and as she did, Porsha made a catty comment about Bailey being Moore’s “best friend.” Bailey responded by telling her that they should all question some of the people they call “best friend” in their group. From there, Williams said, “Who b—h?” and all hell quickly broke loose, as Madame Noire notes.
Since the new season began a few weeks ago, viewers have had a front row seat to Cynthia’s martial woes with husband Peter Thomas, who stands accused of cheating on Bailey with a woman he’s seen caressing and being affectionate toward in a video that was released online. Peter has denied any romantic involvement with the mystery woman. Still, it’s understandable that Bailey was quite possibly under stress during taping of the episode, and Williams may have been a little too carefree in the moment.
Check out the clip below to watch the insults fly and the tension intensify until the camera cuts to black just as the ladies get physical. Seriously, and this was triggered over the word “bi*ch,” which Porsha innocently pleads is her go to term of endearment. Perhaps she should read a dictionary and expand her vocabulary, could help lead to less fights in the future….just sayin’.
This writer doesn’t believe you have the right to claim grown woman status if you cater to conversations about the proper way one should address you as ‘bi*ch.’
Really, if Porsha felt she had nothing to apologize for, she should have walked away or never stepped to Cynthia in the first place. If the producers didn’t stage the altercation, then it’s quite sad that these grown women have opted to argue with each other for a living, and the network is making most of the profit. SMH.
After the episode aired, Porsha tweeted, “I hate to be taken to that place with someone I try to support… I try ????”
