Porsha Williams is breaking her silence about her brawl with her “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-star Kenya Moore that went down during the show’s reunion.
In a preview of her full interview (airing on Access Hollywood Live on April 29), the 31-year-old Bravo star opened about the fight that led to arrest for battery.
“It was so emotional and when I hit that floor and I started screaming and NeNe was covering my mouth and, you know, Phaedra was standing there. It was like sisters because, you know, this show is difficult for all of us,” she told Billy Bush and Kit Hoover of the fight that landed her on the ground in tears after pulling Kenya’s hair and dragging her to the ground.
“They come at me, I come at them, we come at each other. But at the end of the day, we can all pick up the phone and call each other and say, ‘Hey, how do you feel today? I know today’s taping was rough.’ Kenya doesn’t have that relationship with any of us,” she continued. “So when they saw me on the floor – I’m sorry I’m getting emotional because it was hard, I’m sorry – when they saw me on the floor and they knew what I had taken from her, and they knew the bullying she had put me through for two years straight.”
Porsha explained that she’s very grateful having her co-stars stand up for her during the incident.
“I’m feeling successful for once on my own. And, here I am sitting on the couch strong, and here [Kenya] is wanting to tear me down. And, so I’m on the floor and I feel like my sisters were around me. They wanted to make sure that I was OK at that moment. And for me, I will never ever forget that, ever. I don’t care where this show goes for me. I will never forget those women for being there for me,” she told Billy and Kit.
Adding, “I feel like they’re backing me… I stand for a bigger purpose. This is not just about Porsha, you know, because I don’t even feel like people have gotten to know Porsha. I think people are standing up for bullying. People are standing up for someone who doesn’t show another human respect.”
Watch Porsha’s full interview tomorrow, April 29, on Access Hollywood Live.
