The Real Housewives of Atlanta is arguably the most violent of the Real Housewives series. From the epic Porsha versus Kenya reunion fight to tonight’s brawl between Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams, physical violence is unfortunately common on the show. Detailed below are six of RHOA‘s nastiest fights:
1. Kim Zolciak and NeNe Leakes’ choking incident
Zolciak and Leakes traded insults on a regular basis when they were on RHOA, to the point that’s it hard to believe that they are once again friends. One of their most violent tiffs was not caught on camera, but instead, discussed extensively on the show. Zolciak claimed that Leakes tried to “choke her out” and Sheree Whitfield later referred to the incident as a not a catfight, but a dogfight.
2. Kim Zolciak’s RHOA exit
Given the violent nature of Zolciak’s RHOA departure, it’s amazing that she managed to score a spin-off. As she ended her tenure with the show, Zolciak stormed away from her fellow Housewives and lashed out at a Bravo producer.
3. Mama Joyce’s shoe fight
Mama Joyce is crazy enough to be a Housewife right alongside her daughter. Joyce and Carmon Cambrice have never been the best of friends, but things got especially heated between the two at Kandi Burruss’ wedding dress fitting.
4. Pillow talk party fight
This was no average pillow fight! Several regulars and guests were featured in the memorable pillow talk party debacle, including Burruss, Peter Thomas, Todd Tucker, and Malorie Bailey. Burruss is usually at least somewhat levelheaded, but during this incident, she had to be physically restrained by Leakes.
5. Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore’s reunion fight
Easily the most memorable of the RHOA fights, this incident featured Williams going after Moore, although Moore arguably provoked the fight. Fans of the show still disagree as to whether Williams or Moore was to blame for the beatdown.
6. Cynthia Bailey and Porsha Williams’ Season 8 fight
The ladies of RHOA often jokingly use cuss words, but tonight, Bailey decided that this is no longer acceptable when the swear words are aimed at her. Although only the beginnings of this brawl have played out thus far on RHOA, it promises to be very violent. Twitter users already have plenty to say about the skirmish:
Rumors about a nasty scuffle between Bailey and Williams have been swirling for months, and finally, viewers will see Bailey lose control. She is believed to have kicked Williams in the stomach. Could this be Williams’ just desserts for attacking Moore? Perhaps, but Bailey should have kept her cool.
The new fight is certainly not the show’s first, nor will it be its last. Numerous fans are bothered by the RHOA cast’s penchant for violence, which is not likely to disappear in the near future.
