Andy Cohen apologizes for handling of 'RHOA' brawl

Andy Cohen Apologizes For Handling of 'RHOA' Brawl

Andy Cohen took some time out of Sunday's "Watch What Happens Live" to apologize for his handling of what went down at last week's "Real Housewives of Atlanta" reunion.


A fight broke out between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore after Kenya pulled out a scepter and bullhorn -- and used them to berate her castmates. It all led to this.

KENYA: "Yeah you wanna hit me?"
PORSHA: "I will f*** you up."
KENYA: "Get fired! Get fired!"
ANDY: "No! No! No! No! Stop!"


Andy said that it "seemed like a stupid prop to me. Clearly, being on the receiving end of the prop was not stupid or funny. And I'm sorry I didn't see it coming and I should've taken it back."

Andy said he and the other ladies thought the prop was only for comedic effect, along the lines of the fan she used last year. But obviously it wasn't funny ...

And because of the violence at this year's reunion, props will no longer be allowed at future tapings.

Cohen also made sure to note that, while it looked like Porsha Williams was asked to leave the taping, she was actually the one who made that decision -- saying she couldn't handle the added stress of the day.

I think the Housewives franchise is dying and Kenya Moore just put the last nails in the coffin with her behavior. Very disappointing to hear they put all the blame on Porsha and did not renew her contract. I think Andy Cohen is now apologizing because he has lost a lot of support and viewers after this, I say...bring back Porsha, at least SHE was a "HOUSEWIFE". Get rid of crazy, we have NENE for that. ( Nene's drama is subtle, compared to Kenya's) I'm surprised the Pageant she was affiliated has NOT stripped her of her crown and tittle for her outrageous, bullying and negative behaviors.

The pageant Kenya won was decades ago.

They cannot strip her of her crown and title now, only during her "reign" - she is old news.

i'm so sick of nene....she thinks she is a big time super star...i remember her when the show first came on, she was raggedy, messed up hair weave, now she thinks she is up there with the big hollywood stars.....she is no more than a reality buffon and will remain that....since she is so RICH she needs someone to do her bald head with the right wig..........

Kenya is a bully! It was unfortunate that Porsha fell for Kenya's taunts. Shame on Andy for allowing the props on the show, and I feel he is responsable for the fight. I love this show, but if Kenya is on it next season, I will quit watching!

I feel that African American women right now should be appalled by this incident. The executives are making millions off this and other types of shows which degrade african americans, other cultures as well. Heres an opportunity for up and coming and aspiring black entrepreneurs to demonstrate how it can come to be by working hard, loving one another, striving, and while yes having difficulties along the way they can succeed. But no, that doesnt cause the ratings to go thru the ceilings, so permitting someone to bring a wand, and a foghorn/siren, knowing full well they planned to use it, and all the profanity, this sells............this is another sorrowful day in the history of America, the once great is falling away again from grace! Perhaps instead of having a reunion of these ladies, why don't they ask them to take some time off and alone without cameras and work thru their issues.............perhaps with a counselor there, i mean if they want to continue to work in tv and this type of environment thats their choice, but we have a choice as to whether or not we want to watch it, if this had been a man who reached up and grabbed this woman by the hair or knocked her to the ground, there would be NO coming back to the show, they would perhaps still be behind bars facing jail time, is this really what they want America to remember about them? Their children to hear about them? They all need to realize that they are not perfect, never gonna be perfect, and we all things in our lives our past that we wish had never occurred.................im not generally involved in this type of discussion, but it hurt me to see all of my sisters just sitting there, cussing, crossing their eyes, trying to look like queens and acting like guard dogs..................too much....................too much............they need love, they need to realize that everything is not needed or needful for television.............i pray this incident while unfortunate, it will bring about a change within all of them...............

Being a "Housewife" from whatever place happens to be doesn't mean that even thought they have money are educated well behaved "Ladies" they are worse than low-class tramps

Yes, now that they are paid $$$$$$$$$$ to go on these stupid reality shows, they are just low-class tramps with money. Nothing has changed except now they are "celebrities" and apparently have money or access to lots of credit.
