If you’ve visited this site for any length of time, you already know that I’m a big fan of reality tv. Recently, I watched the fiery reunion for the Real Housewives of Atlanta (Part 1). In the clip above Porsha Williams, the granddaughter of civil rights leader Hosea Williams, was provoked by Kenya Moore (former Miss America). Porsha responded by dragging Kenya across the stage. The women on The View discussed this incident and in my opinion, they got it right.
Sometimes people get just what they deserve and Kenya was on the receiving end… just what she deserved. Sure, here at studiotj, every attempt is made to keep it positive and I’m positive… that Kenya got just what she deserved. Check out the clip below and let me know what you think.
