Over the past few days, everyone has been up in arms about the recent cat fight between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore. Two beautiful women. Grown women. Cast members (I refuse to call them stars) on the popular reality TV show Real Housewives of Atlanta. Well, technically it wasn't really a fight. One woman physically assaulted the other one because she (and other cast members) felt like she was being provoked.
Let me just say this... I don't condone or support violence. AT ALL. And I will never come to someone's defense who physically attacks another person if it isn't self-defense. I totally understand feeling provoked though. I get it. I've been there - many times. But I watched the reunion show and my question is this: Weren't they all being provoked???
Those beautiful women sat there in their designer gowns, flawless makeup and spewed out demeaning comments at one another all night. They called each other slut...hoe....b*tch...repeatedly. Talk about being provoked! I personally know some women who will get it poppin' it you call them ANY of those names. Sure, one of the cast members had some props with her antics, which was annoying, inappropriate, and childish. But I blame Bravo TV for allowing that. They write the checks and they make the rules. #fact
I blame both women also. You can't bully someone with verbal abuse, props and/or accusations and get physical when you (Porsha) feel provoked. It doesn't work that way. If it did, we'd all have arrest records with multiple charges of battery. You also can't add fuel to the fire (Kenya) and then act surprised when it blows all the way up!
I don't watch Real Housewives of Atlanta regularly. God bless you if you do. But from what I've seen, most of these ladies' conflict could be avoided if they would do one simple thing: Grow up.
