Nicki Minaj's Opinion on 'RHOA' Reunion Fight Is... Questionable
By now everyone's seen the Real Hair Pull of Atlanta from RHOA's first reunion installment. The incident between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore immediately sparked a debate over who was to blame for the outburst. Even the ladies of The View threw in their two cents (they blame Moore). Recently, Nicki Minaj became the latest celeb to speak her piece on the debacle, and although she clearly states that Williams was provoked, her stance on Williams' decision to get physical with Moore sounds kind of questionable.
She told Entertainment Tonight, "I wouldn't have been able to handle it. Somebody would have had to get knocked upside the head!"
Moore undeniably takes her role as queen of provocation very seriously, and as tempting as it would be to silence her with a smack, I still can't get on board with condoning the physical attack. Minaj's additional, yet contradictory, assessment sounds more sensible: "If Porsha knew better, then she wouldn't let people rile her up as quickly."
Even though Williams immediately expressed regret after the attack in the form of a tear-filled, full-fledged temper tantrum, it stands to reason that she received a slight level of satisfaction out of the altercation, which may explain why her mugshot looks like a toothpaste ad.
Throughout her time on the show, Moore gained popularity not from her charm, or the fact that she was a 90s beauty queen. Viewers weren't enthralled with her ability to twirl, but her constant antagonistic behavior towards other cast mates. She started out on the wrong foot with Cynthia Bailey and her relationships with both Phaedra Parks and NeNe Leakes rapidly deteriorated.
Parks may have dissed Moore's dead dog, but she didn't resort to violence. And even though Leakes is the hugest instigator ever and has allegedly engaged in her share of physical exchanges with other cast members, she managed to move past Moore's antics without fighting.
Andy Cohen officially banned props at the reunions moving forward, but if Williams returns for another season, that doesn't mean she won't be subjected to another form of hostile behavior intentionally aimed at aggravating her. After all, that is the premise of the show. Maybe she will spend her off season strengthening her way with words instead of her grip.
