‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ star Porsha Williams turned herself in for arrest in Atlanta in the aftermath of a physical altercation with costar Kenya Moore. Her glamorous mugshot photo, which you can see here, has gone viral.
The arrest of the 31-year-old RHOA star has made international headlines. While many may have wondered about it, now we have the Porsha Williams booking photo (above) and to say it does not look like a typical mugshot is an understatement. The photo could easily be mistaken for a head shot in a modeling or acting portfolio.
It certainly speaks of the advantage of turning oneself in voluntarily when an arrest warrant is issued. You can arrive completely styled — hair and makeup perfectly in place — and literally be ready for your closeup which immediately enters the public domain and, if you are a celebrity, goes viral on the Internet where it will be looked over and assessed by untold millions.
As for the circumstances of the arrest — perhaps overshadowed now with the buzz over the mug shot — it came about because she got into a physical fight with Kenya Moore, one of her RHOA co-stars. It took place, according to E!News during the taping of the reunion episode on the reality TV program which airs on Bravo channel, along with the other shows the comprise the “Real Housewives” franchise.
The E!News — which, it should be noted is owned by Universal which also owns Bravo — goes on to note that she turned herself in at Fulton County Jail for arrested and she was charged with one count of misdemeanor battery and released after posting $2,000 bail.
It was TMZ which originally reported on the altercation between the two reality TV stars, noting that Kenya Moore filed a police report. The site also claims that Porsha Williams wants the D.A. to file felony aggravated assault charges against Moore for the incident. They also posted a “sneak peek” video — footage from the set during the incident in question — which you can see below.
The episode in which this fight occurred is set to be broadcast within days. While conflicts are expected if not encouraged on reality TV shows, arrests are still rare. This is a developing story so check back for updates on the arrest of Porsha Williams.
