Porsha Williams, star of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, is being charged with misdemeanor battery in Fulton County, Atlanta, after getting into a brawl with co-star Kenya Moore at last month’s season 6 reunion taping.
Her rep told E! News that, since yesterday, she has been booked and released and right now is “doing great.”
Take a look at her (fabulous) mugshot:
“She is charged with one misdemeanor count of simple battery stemming from an incident that occurred during the taping of The Real Housewives of Atlanta reunion episode,” her rep said. “Cast member Kenya Moore sought out the warrant and, although the claim is unfounded, Ms. Williams is fully cooperating with investigators and looks forward to clearing her name.”

News of the fight leaked last month, after inside sources said Kenya had been provoking Porsha all day. A lot of it had to do with her ex-husband Kordell Stewart’s sexuality.
“They did get into an altercation,” an insider told Us Weekly. “Porsha stood up, so then Kenya stood up. Porsha charged at Kenya and pulled her hair, but it was over in a matter of seconds. Porsha never dragged her by her hair. Andy [Cohen] and a producer jumped in and then security came.”
Co-star Kandi Burruss claims that Porsha acted out of frustration because Kenya had pushed her to her limit.
“There was a lot going on, I can’t tell you everything, but she was pushed,” Kandi said on Bethenny. “Yeah, she definitely was provoked, I would think.”
Reunion host and Bravo head honcho Andy Cohen also talked about the incident on his Bravo video blog.
“They stood up; I think I stood up pretty quickly. It was such a flash, and it started to escalate,” he said. “I was trying to prevent it, and a couple other people jumped in too. To me, it came out of nowhere.The other women felt Kenya provoked her a bit. I was so shocked and surprised. I don’t want that to happen. I think it’s gross. And I think it just totally inappropriate. It’s wrong. It’s not entertaining. It’s just bad.”
Kenya called the cops immediately following the the attack. TMZ leaked the 911 tape in which Kenya sounded extremely distraught. TMZ also reported that Porsha was immediately fired from the show after she wasn’t able to finish taping the reunion. There has been no word from Bravo on casting for next season as of yet.
