Chaos took place during the family retreat in Mexico.
Bravo executives described Porsha Williams as a fan favorite of “Real Housewives of Atlanta.” However, she’s been receiving a lot of backlash. Her engagement to Simon Guobadia is controversial. Porsha figured her spinoff show, “Porsha’s Family Matters,” would be able to give clarity to critics. Interestingly enough, most of the drama has been centered around Porsha’s breakup with Dennis McKinley. Their co-parenting relationship has taken a huge hit. And a family retreat has only made things worse.
When it comes to the altercation, Porsha told her family not to discuss it on camera the day after. A producer took issue with this. He called everyone out. And eventually, Porsha and her family discussed it. Porsha said she was triggered by the discussions of Dennis cheating. She also said she “blacked out.” As for Dennis, he feels Porsha took things too far. And he was put in a position where he had to protect Mama Gina because Porsha allegedly lunged at her.
Things got really violent as Porsha was throwing dishes and production equipment in Dennis’ direction. Dennis may have also been assaulted by Porsha’s cousin Storm and Storm’s mother Darlene. It also looked as if Lauren may have struck Dennis as well at some point.
Porsha Williams spoke out on Instagram.
Viewers have a lot to say about Porsha’s actions. They feel she had no right to be violent towards Gina and Dennis. Interestingly enough, Porsha’s recent statement on Instagram has caused even more backlash. To some, it seems as if Porsha isn’t really holding herself accountable. And she may have insinuated that it was Dennis who was violent and she was just reacting.
She wrote, “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.” Porsha continued, “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.”
Porsha said she was trying to protect Dennis when she asked her family not to talk about the altercation. “I spoke to some of my family members that were present and decided at the time it was best not to talk about what cameras didn’t get to capture because I was trying to protect Dennis, his business, and therefore our own daughter. Looking back, that was not the right idea.”
She added, “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 backward.”
Well, a lot of the comments expressed disgust with Porsha’s statement as well as her actions. They called her out in the comments. She has limited commenting on the post.
