Porsha Williams’ storyline in season 13 is vastly different than those of her previous years. Instead of shading her co-stars, Williams is on the front lines protesting throughout the country in an effort to stop the killing of unarmed Blacks by police. She’s been working alongside other activists to bring justice to Breonna Taylor’s family, the 26-year-old front line worker who was fatally shot by police in her own Kentucky home as she slept.
Williams’ co-stars, and her fans, have expressed their joy in watching Williams’ transformation. After all, it was just seven seasons ago that Williams mistakenly thought the famed Underground Railroad was a real train and not a metaphor for slaves’ journey to freedom.
One co-star who is not buying Williams’ activism is Kenya Moore. The two have battled on-and-off for years and Moore believes Williams is fronting for the cameras. During one scene on the show this season, Moore asks Kandi Burruss if anyone has seen Williams, saying, “Cause at this point it just seems like maybe they’re putting themselves in the position to be arrested.”
Williams is not happy about Moore’s insinuation that her activism is a ploy. The granddaughter of civil rights activist Hosea Williams is snapping back at Moore’s skepticism, and thanking her defenders on who spoke on her behalf, including Tamika Mallory.
“It really is sad that this had to be addressed. Thank you @tamikadmallory my leader and my sister in the struggle for all you do first and for most! However, I will say this I am on Rhoa and most of the show is for entertainment but when it comes to BLM let me be clear I will not be Reading anyone, I will not be shading anyone, I will not stoop down and give weight nor battle the topic of BLM with a fellow black women [sic] on TV,” Williams said to Moore.
Moore shot back, doubling down on her statements and reminding Williams of her past fights.
Still, fans are siding with Porsha:
Kenya is going to be truly disliked if she continues to accuse Porsha of being a fake advocate of BLM while she herself sits in her multimillion dollar home crying over a man that doesn’t want her.

The feud between kenya and Porsha is disappointing and not in a good way. Porsha trys to remain humble (which I really appreciate) and kenya is going beyond ridiculous. This is Blm, not a game or can be talked about lightly? how hard is it to mind your business kenya. #Rhoa

I don’t like this at all! They have done incredible work with BLM & for Breonna Taylor. Kenya is mad that Porsha didn’t want to film a group PSA or something? Btw Porsha was being active w the movement BEFORE strippergate. She’s been a Bravo star long enough to know how it works. https://t.co/USzUv2d27E
