NeNe Leakes Blames Bravo And Kenya Moore For Fight
Rucuss staffJanuary 28, 2014
Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes takes no responsibility for the epic fight that took place during Sunday’s show.
If you missed it, Apollo Nida and Kenya Moore’s friend Brandon had a physical fight on the show. It took place during a pajama-themed party called, Pillow Talk. The confrontation took place after Christopher Williams stood up to address Kenya for calling him out about his relationship status.
Kenya jumped up to defend herself, which led to Williams grabbing her arm. Her friend Brandon jumped up to defend her and chaos ensued.
Now NeNe wants to tell her side of the story. She blames producers and Bravo for editing footage to make her look bad. The reality star said Bravo edited out the part when Kenya charged across the room.
Read NeNe’s entire blog that she posted on Twitter below:
I created this game called “Pillow Talk” and it all started from Gregg and I basically discussing our day once we got in bed at night! Obviously this party is for adults only with adult topics and content. I was the hostess with the mostess! The guests were invited along with a dress code and everyone knew what they were walking into. My intentions were to build couple unity within the group but as you can see, things got turnt all the way up! You ask why? Everybody in the room were asked questions that were touchy because that was the bases of the game! We all answered, including me and Gregg. We really had fun with it contrary to what you thought you saw and I stress “what you thought you saw” because there are always intentions for these parties or group gatherings which is totally out of my control!
Let’s get to the good stuff: Kenya arrived three hours late to the party! I was really aggravated because we can’t really end the scene until all housewives have arrived! Keeping it real is what I do! Some might call it messy, but see it as you may!
Christopher had a question in his hand that he wanted to answer standing up for reasons unbeknownst to me! I walked past Christopher and took my seat! He then began to speak to Kenya about the false accusations Kenya had told his wife. Chris’s wife Natalie started saying “don’t back paddle now” and Kenya got up and charged out of her seat towards Natalie (but you couldn’t see that part) (I wonder why?). Chris stepped in to stop her but not in an aggressive way. Kenya then got all extra saying take your hands off on me! Her girlfriend in the red pajamas jumped up in Chris’s face and that’s when the explosion started. I don’t condone violence! I can’t control adults and it’s not my fault if adults decide to fight on their own!
In my opinion Kenya was the spark that lit the fire. Whenever she’s around, we have the worst times! I’ve been on this show from the very beginning and we have NEVER had a physical altercation on this show! I am all about a good read, throwing shade and even getting you together when need be but violence is never okay to me. I think it’s a sad display of behavior and I think it is sad to the black community to be a part of such negative activity! I am bigger, I am better and for that I apologize!
Here’s a few questions I would like to ask you: why do you think they let Kenya narrate the whole fight scene? Why do you think they took the part out when Kenya was charging across the room? All the housewives would say we were having a good time! Why do you think they showed it as if we were not? Thanks for watching!
Meanwhile, Peter talked Sister 2 Sister about the incident and apologized as well.
“All of that was so explosive. It happened so fast. Apollo [Nida] got up to help me hold Brandon back while Gregg [Leakes] and Todd [Tucker] took Christopher the other way, but Brandon was so aggressive and so hype that he accidentally hit Apollo and that’s what made Apollo flip.”
It’s really a shame. I never thought that someone would hit me, especially when I was kinda trying to defuse the situation. I just saw a lot of rage in his eyes. All I know, I got hit and I just got really carried away.
If I’m breaking up a fight and I accidentally get hit, I’m probably not going to react that way, but it wasn’t just the accidental hit. You can hear [Brandon] say, ‘Oh, you wanna fight, too?’”
No one is proud of what happened, including Apollo. Everyone is ashamed.”
Sunday’s fight was the first physical altercation on the Real Housewives of Atlanta.
