Porsha Williams is still getting a ton of backlash for physically trying to fight her ex, Dennis McKinley. While Williams is hinting to McKinley being the aggressor, not many are buying it. Fans of The Real Housewives of Atlanta are calling her out for being violent toward co-stars in the past and FOX SOUL host Claudia Jordan says she’s been a witness to it.
Porsha Williams defended her actions
Williams and her ex-fiance Dennis McKinley speaking about him cheating on Williams is apparently what triggered the fight. Williams demanded that McKinley and his mother leave the trip early.
According to fans, as Williams and McKinley argued, Williams lunged at McKinley, causing things to escalate to her punching, throwing objects, and continuing to curse at McKinley. Other family members of Williams also jumped in and tried to fight McKinley. Fans blame Williams for the ordeal.
“There is a lot that viewers didn’t get to see tonight and I wish we had more cameras to capture that, which I understand is nobody’s fault,” she wrote. “I’ve learned in the past that physical violence is never okay, especially when a man is causing physical harm to women. That is something we are too desensitized to as a society. I take accountability for reacting strongly to what I was seeing and hearing. While I was not physical with Ms. Gina, I regret arguing with an elder. We’re six months removed from this incident and I’m looking forward, not backwards.”
Claudia Jordan blasts Porsha Williams and Simon Guobadia
Jordan spoke about the incident on her FOX SOUL talk show Out Loud With Claudia Jordan. She co-starred with Williams on RHOA during Season 7 and the two did not get along. Jordan says Williams’ actions are having a negative affect on her career and brand. Considering Williams quit RHOA and her hosting gig on Dish Nation, Jordan says her future is in jeopardy riding on this spinoff series.
“You are messing up a bag. You’re gonna be another one to fumble an amazing bag. You have everything there for you. You’re quitting all your good jobs to do this show. You put all your eggs in one basket. And you like…it’s very trashy. You fight everybody. Who’s next?” Jordan asks.
She continued, adding the Guobadia is a big part of the problem. “I think they’re both so thirsty and desperate for the attention, for the constant feeding of the ego that they’ll both do anything to stay in the headlines,” she said. “Him getting a tattoo on his wide back or his shoulder, wherever it was, her marrying this guy that had three other failed marriages and so quickly…it’s obvious there are still some feelings for Dennis. You won’t give back his robe, you don’t want him to bring a date and these emotions she’s showing for him. I think she should have worked on that first before going on television and been solid with her man.”
