Cynthia Bailey blames Kenya Moore for ‘RHOA’ fight

Cynthia Bailey

Sunday night’s episode of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” was the most explosive one of the entire series as recently jailed husband of the franchise Apollo Nida brutally beat Kenya Moore’s assistant, Brandon, after a heated argument during a couple’s night hosted by NeNe Leakes. After the fight broke out, Leakes immediately blamed resident trouble maker Kenya Moore for the fisticuffs and now Cynthia Bailey has followed suit and is blaming Moore as well.

During a recent appearance on “Watch What Happens Live,” Bailey talked with host Andy Cohen about the brutal fight and explained that she felt horrible about the brawl.

“I want to apologize on behalf of the whole cast tonight. It was really hard to watch this fight tonight. I’ve been on the show for four years. Never, I don’t think ever in the history of the whole show has anyone on the show laid hands on each other,” Bailey said.

Bailey also echoed Leakes claims that producers edited the film to make it look like the entire Pillow Talk party was hostile. Bailey assured that the party was fun and that everything was peaceful before the fight.

“The whole purpose of the Pillow Talk thing was for everybody to put everything on the table because we all have a lot of issues in the group and that was just a great opportunity to do it,” Bailey explained. “It was going fine until the fight started.”

Although it was Apollo Nida and Brandon DeShazer who disturbed the peace with their fight, Bailey claims that it was Moore who stirred up the drama in the first place when she jumped out of her seat to confront Christopher Williams’ wife, Natalie.

“I felt like once—and I don’t want to blame everything on Kenya—but once she actually got up, then that made Brandon get up,” said Bailey.

Bailey also claimed that her husband, Peter Thomas didn’t do anything to instigate the fight and that he actually jumped in to keep DeShazer and Williams apart.

“It looked like Peter was actually a big part of the fight and he wasn’t,” she said. “One of the things Peter was very instrumental in doing was actually breaking up the fight. He was actually trying to keep Brandon down because Brandon was trying to get to Christopher. We thought Apollo jumped in to help and then it ended up just going crazy.”

Although Bailey discussed everyone else’s role in the fight, she also admitted that she’s the one who planted the seed of discord within the group when she told Kandi Burruss and Moore that Natalie had called Burruss’ fiancé, Todd Tucker, an opportunist. Afterwards, Burruss confronted Natalie about her comments and Moore questioned the validity of Natalie’s marriage to Williams.

“In hindsight, I guess I was being a little messy. I do regret that I ever brought it up,” Bailey said.

Clearly, this is just a messy situation all around, but with Bailey, Thomas and Leakes all claiming that scenes were edited and that Moore instigated the fight, we’re wondering if their claims are actually true. Considering how Moore has been stirring up drama between cast mates all season, we wouldn’t be surprised if that was the case. – nicholas robinson
