The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion was deemed the most dramatic moment in Real Housewives history as Porsha Williams dragged Kenya Moore across the floor by her hair after a heated argument.

During the reunion, Moore taunted Williams’ failed marriage with Kordell Stewart, saying she was a mere coverup for his homosexuality.  Soon, Williams stood up and threatened Moore before she also stood up.  Soon after, Williams grabbed Moore’s hair, dragged her to the floor and immediately regretted her actions.

While cameras cut away, Moore appeared fine as she stood up unharmed and declared threats to her fight partner.

“I’m not going to sit here and get hit, by someone on TV,” Moore declared, “She goes or I go. She’s crazy.”

Now, a week after Williams turned herself into police for battery, Moore broke her silence on the incident.

“During the taping of the Reunion Episode for the Real Housewives of Atlanta, I was violently attacked by Porsha Williams,” she stated in the statement.  “I called 911 to report the incident. The 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.”

She continues to note that she is not a violent person and anyone who blacks out during an angry moment needs to be held responsible for their actions.

Opening up about her past, she talks about being abused as a teenager, which prompted her to seek self defense classes developed for the Israeli military. Even though she did not respond physically, she admits she could have taken anyone down in three quick moves but her title as Miss USA prevented her from doing so.

“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,” she finishes in the statement.

Williams was released on a $2,000 bail after turning herself into Atlanta police on Wednesday, April 16.
