LOS ANGELES (LALATE EXCLUSIVE) – The RHOA Fight 2014 night starts this evening on Bravo. A RHOA Fight 2014 hits the Real Housewives of Atlanta 2014 Reunion tonight. The 911 Kenya Moore tape has already been released. Porsha Stewart has already been arrested and her mugshot has been released.
LALATE can exclusively report, however, that Bravo is expecting that tonight’s Real Housewives of Atlanta Reunion telecast could break all time ratings records. The telecast has been secretly guarded by production for weeks. Less than a few seconds of footage has been released. Does Porsha Stewart beat up Kenya, does Porsha drag Kenya by the hair, what happened to Kenya Moore’s head, and was Porsha thrown off the set? Fans will find out over the next three weeks of the 3-part telecast.
Tonight’s RHOA Fight 2014 is not what Bravo likes to air. But the network understands that the telecast will draw unprecedented footage. Reports have claimed that a stricter policy about cast member conduct was implemented after the Pillow Talk Fight. Reports have claimed that the Fight implemented a termination warning to cast members. Widespread reports claim that Porsha Stewart was fired after attacking Kenya Moore. Production has since told news that they have yet to decide if Porsha Stewart will be fired or brought back. LALATE anticipates that Stewart will return but in a reduced capacity.
Andy Cohen has been vocal about his displeasure with tonight’s fight. The RHOA franchise in particular has been able to improve its ratings year to date without violence. And hence it was unnecessary for tonight’s reunion to deliver a fight to arguably eclipse last year’s benchmark. But do not be surprised if Bravo airs some sort of update, disclaimer, extra footage or supplemental interview in conjunction with the RHOA Fight. It would be out of character for the network to just air the RHOA Fight and not comment about it, vocalize a disapproval of the conduct, in conjunction with the telecast.
There is a distinct need by the network, in the face of advertisers as well, to make sure that the message is clear against violence, and that the telecast’s fight is not being used to draw ratings. Cohen has said “I just don’t want that to happen again. I think it’s gross. It’s totally inappropriate; it’s wrong. It’s not entertaining. It’s just bad.”
Nevertheless, previews of the RHOA Reunion have only featured the fight and virtually nothing else. So the delicate balance of promoting the telecast via the fight, and then trying to denounce the conduct, is clearly at play.
Porsha Stewart was booked by the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office with a charge of simple battery on April 16, 2014. She was released that day as well on a two thousand dollar bond. And her statistics were listed as 5′ 7″ 145 lbs. Her booking number is 1408703 Stewart is now, at least, the fourth Bravo personality on air currently with mug shots out of the Fulton County Sheriff’s Office. Peter Thomas has two, Gregory and Quad Webb each have one.
Kenya Moore left the set after being hit by Porsha. In a prviate room, Kenya called 911. “She hit me in the head” Moore says in the 911 tape. The operator first asks Kenya to describe where she is located. She does not mention Bravo or RHOA. But she states that she is at “The Biltmore Hotel …. uh. um. Sixth street and something else.” She requests “Police please. [My name is] Kenya. I just been assaulted”. When asked to identify the attacker, Kenya says “Porsha Williams… I am on the third floor. She is black, wearing a gold dress. Gold.” Moore is asked if Porsha had a weapon. “She does not [have a weapon].” Then Kenya accuses Porsha of hitting her head. “She hit me in the head, fighting me, hitting me.” Moore further explains that she is unsure where Porsha is now located. Kenya says of herself that she is now on the third floor. For more about Kenya Moore’s boyfriend and the RHOA Reunion click HERE.
