Porsha Williams is what one might call intellectually incurious. She’s proven time and again that she doesn’t grasp even the simplest concepts. What she did learn during her time at Bravo was that the most important thing is to bring the drama. She and Kenya have brought a lot of the drama this season, accusing each other of all sorts of things – some may be true, some not so much. Last night it all came to a head and Porsha physically attacked Kenya, pulling her hair and dragging her to the ground. Kenya pushed her buttons, poking and prodding until the silly girl became completely unglued.
When the two were separated, Kenya walked away but Porsha just sort of flopped around on the floor, flailing about and crying over the fact that she let Kenya get to her. She said she was embarrassed – not that she was sorry, mind you, just embarrassed. That was about all she could say because by then Nene had reached her side and firmly clamped her hand over Porsha’s mouth in what must be Nene’s way of helping her to understand her Miranda rights.
Since the reunion was filmed, Porsha was arrested for assault. Kenya had called the police immediately after the attack, a warrant was issued and Porsha turned herself in to the Atlanta P.D. last week. Porsha, however, still doesn’t seem to understand exactly what she did wrong. She posed for a mug shot in full makeup and has been sending out tweets about her new recording. Did I mention that I think she’s dumb? Maybe someone should sit her down and explain what she did that day and how it isn’t the way people are supposed to behave. She assaulted Kenya. She put her hands on another person and attempted to cause bodily injury, intentionally. It’s inexcusable and it’s indefensible. She doesn’t get to hurt anyone, no matter what was said to her or what was waved in her face. She got up off of the couch and, instead of taking a right turn and walking off the set, she took a left and attacked her cast mate.
Now, this type of behavior happens all the time on Bravo’s shows. Almost every franchise has had some sort of event where someone has been assaulted. It could be argued that they encourage it, but that would also mean that the parties involved have no self-control or sense of right and wrong. I’m not going to give Porsha that excuse, though. She may not be the brightest bulb, but surely she knows that you don’t go around hitting and grabbing people. At least, I hope she does. She showed us that, since words are not her friends, she turns to physical violence. A civilized society, with rules and laws, requires more than that, and she may have to learn about how to conduct herself in the future the hard way.
Porsha was removed from the set of the reunion and told not to come back for the remainder of the filming. At least Bravo got that part right. In a preview for part 2 of the reunion, Andy, looking earnestly at the camera, tells us that Bravo doesn’t condone violence. That’s just laughable. It’s also been rumored that Porsha has been fired. Is it’s true and the firing is based on this incident, then Bravo and Andy aren’t just disingenuous, they’re liars. Half of the casts of these franchises would be on the unemployment lines if that was actually Bravo’s stance on violence. It really doesn’t matter, though, because there will always be someone ready and willing to put on the boxing gloves and roll around in the muddy wasteland of Bravo TV. They may even end up in handcuffs, too.
