Last season on the Real Housewives of Atlanta, Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams got into a heated altercation. Porsha was sent home after attacking Kenya and then was demoted for the current season of the Real Housewives. In an excerpt from Andy’s book, ‘The Andy Cohen Diaries,’ Andy opens up about the altercation and his thoughts behind it.
“I don’t even know how to describe the reunion today. Messy, how’s that? Kenya brought a scepter and a bullhorn (I used to love props because I’d viewed them as comedy) and she was waving both in Porsha’s face, and Porsha just snapped. She stood up and got in Kenya’s face. I stood to break them up and as soon as I did they somehow wound up on the floor with Porsha pulline Kenya’s hair. It was ugly. I was upset-everybody was. My gut reaction was that we had to send Porsha home, and that she was not emotionally ready to handle going back into the verbal firing line with these women. Meanwhile she was worried she’d ended her whole “career” in the course of ten seconds. It was a bad look for the show and the women. Kenya filed a police report against Porsha, and the other women felt that Kenya had it coming because of the props. It was just a weird, bad day. And I found out that NeNe was apparently pissed at me because I didn’t seat her next to me when Paula Patton was on the show with her a few months ago. That’s why she kept turning down requests to come back on. Seating is very important. This is the kind of advice I can offer the world. “
Following the reunion, Andy had a one-on-one with NeNe Leakes which he spoke about as well.
“The NeNe one-on-one that aired Sunday night got 3.5 million viewers. We beat MTV Movie Awards and NBC and ABC. And all I can think of is that NeNe’s gonna want to raise her fee. Oy.
