Kenya Moore Issues Statement on Porsha Williams Fight, Urges People to #stoptheviolence

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Hours after The Real Housewives of Atlanta fight heard 'round the world, Kenya Moore issued a statement and made one thing crystal clear:

She does not condone violence. No way, no how.

Sure, she might have antagonized Porsha Williams by insulting her intelligence and marriage, even bringing props to goad her co-star even more aggressively.

But there's just no excuse for violence, people.

After weeks of speculation surrounding their reported brawl on set, viewers finally saw Porsha Williams beat down Kenya Moore Sunday on Bravo.

As you can see if you re-watch The Real Housewives of Atlanta online, Porsha may have thrown down, but Kenya was hardly an innocent bystander.

Moore sure makes it seem that way though, first with her eye-rolling 911 call and now with a statement she's released in the aftermath of the episode.

Williams faces battery charges following an investigation, though Moore is reportedly willing to drop the charges if she receives a sincere public apology.

Good luck with that. There's clearly no love lost between the two reality stars, who went at each other all season long, sparring (verbally) on the hit series.

Even Kenya's statement subtly digs at Porsha, touting Moore's own intelligence and casting herself above the fray - not that she couldn't take Williams.

She's been trained by Israeli special forces in self-defense, Kenya claims, and can take anyone down in three moves. She just chose not to here.

Mmm hmm. So whose side are you on in this epic celebrity feud?

Read her statement in its entirety after the jump and decide:

During the taping of the Reunion 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. 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 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 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 send, especially to young people - no matter how angry someone makes you feel by what they say to or about you, violence is never an option. #stoptheviolence

You buying it? Especially considering it's Kenya?

when Kenya joined the group . She wanted to have a cordial relationship with the others , but they didn't want that . People seemed to have forgotten all the foul names Porsha called Kenya but Kenya didn't fight her .So why should resort to violence . I hope she goes to prison . MAY BE SHE WOULD learn some manners and lesson

If teach our children to keep our hands to themselves, and avoid resulting to violence, why should it be different for adults. I like Portia, but she did a foolish thing, real friends are a good influence and she should know that none of these women here real friends. I can't say this show haven't entertained me, but truthfully when these shows go to the extreme, like treating any other woman worst than the dirt in the ground, it hurts my spirit. Everyone knows what to expect from Kenya by now, She creates a suitable world fitting for herself, no different from those we see as crazy. Ne Ne have a tough one to learn, that fame will plague your soul to the grave, and the only thing will me remembered is " Tv's Bully with the Big Mouth"! They all compete for ratings only to stay another season!

I am moved to write in defence of Kenya Moore who everyone hates with a passion out of jealousy.
Yes! Miss Kenya dont filter her words, agreed, that is evident that her heart is pure, she says it as it is but also respecting other. Nene hates her because she cant dominate her so she humiliate her at any given opportunity, phedra hates her because she knows her hubby is drawn to her and she is scared (you know those women who is afraid to deal with her man instead hates the woman he is drawn to) Kenya has her own peculiar ways of dealing with things which is very innocent, contrary to general belief but it's alway seen wrongly. Kenya is a very inteligent, eloquent, educated, strong and classy woman who defends and works hard for all she is and owns. Coming into reality as a single lady with a dispitful B.F didn't introduce miss USA very well.
Porsha came into reality life as a married woman, painting a perfect almost enviable lifestyle which she quickly showed off in a provoking way to so called MISS USA who struggles with a sensless BF, the divorce not only expose her fake and unstable life it also made the world look at her delusional real self, this international disgrace was too much so she claimed the ex is gay but ppl didnt buy that, Cynthia's hubby went out of his way to find out the truth and as always someone must pay for that exposed info and Kenya is an easy target walked right into a ticking bomb.
Kordell Stewart's ex-wife was taking prescribed pills to deal with depression following their divorce and painkillers for her recent boob job… she is publicly reduced to nothing still in stupor but kenya was the target to pour out all her frustration on.
She would have more than enough ppl to fight on love and hip hop. That is her final set up. Watch and see the real porsha will manifest. Pressure and problems do not make you, they only show you your realself, kenya was publicly been humiliated by porsha during the children's charity thing she organise, she told kenya to leave and go back to the street corner she belong, that was the real porsha, but karma is exposing a non sensitive human.
Even Kenya's statement subtly digs at Porsha, touting Moore's own intelligence and casting herself above the fray - not that she couldn't take Williams. She's been trained by Israeli special forces in self-defense, Kenya claims, and can take anyone down in three moves. She just chose not to here.
I apologise to KENYA women are really hatefull when they live well and another struggles, thank God for Karma.
I DO NOT CONDON VIOLENCE. Be strong Miss Kenya, God will bring a man that will love you and you shall smile with your children.

You are right on Ladyblessed! Phaedra &Nene are Sooo jealous that they met with Porsha and set this whole cat fight up.They are trying to look like they have class instead of Big Loud Mouths! They used dum dum Princess ghetto Porsha , laughing at her foul comments with Phaedra drawling her fake creepy "Ugh Huh" throwing her vindictive little remarks cheerleading dum dum Porsha to do their dirty work.Nene even put her full hand on Porshas mouth to shut her up saying "remember what we talked about?" They ganged up on Kenya as they always do hence the bullhorn.Everyone knows how NeNe & Porsha have big rude mouths never allowing Kenya to respond to their Ghetto bullshit. Everyone I talk to think the vlting is paid participants because no one likes Porsha or Nene Queen Ghetto Kenya is way prettier and much smarter than all of the haters.

Kenya should leave. No one on the show really cares for her. If Porsha leaves,I'm one viewer gone. Bullying without retaliation she should have beat her down

Kenya should be removed from the show; she has no class no integrity and she is a confounded liar

Porsha should leave the show. I am with Kenya Moore. Porsha has always had a smart attitude. She is jealous of Kenya Moore.

Really, Kenya? You don't want your nieces, future children nor other children see you rolling on the floor fighting yet it's okay for them to see you engaging in a manner that not only got your ass kicked but was also grounds FOR an ass-kickin'. You're right, there is no excuse for violence but there was a damn good reason for it and as far as someone being held accountable for their actions, you need to woman the fuck up and own up to the fact that you were just as wrong as Porsha for starting the fight in the first place. Just as the police are deciding Porsha's fate, Bravo should be deciding YOUR fate. First your friend gets HIS ass kicked, now YOU?!!!!!
