Overeacting? Color Of Change Slam Bravo For ‘Real Housewives Of Atlanta’ Brawl

Has violence across television reached a fever pitch this week?

With last Sunday’s explosive ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ reunion episode still on everyone’s mind, civil rights group ColorOfChange.org is speaking out against violence across Bravo shows.

Read their condemning statement inside…

In a statement to The Hollywood Reporter, ColorOfChange campaign director Arisha Hatch says the group has been in touch with NBC Universal about their concerns of violence across much of their black centered programs. The group would like to see Bravo enact anti-violence policies, similar to VH1, in which excessive physical confrontations will be banned. VH1 enacted those new policies after fighting between “Basketball Wives” castemates caused a frenzy in 2012.

Read ColorOfChange.org’s statement below:

From the “Real Housewives of Atlanta” reunion to the second season of “Married to Medicine,” the physical violence displayed during Bravo’s Sunday primetime lineup was deeply alarming. After weeks of promoting the RHOA reunion altercation, on Sunday executive producer Andy Cohen finally condemned the violent behavior of cast members — completely ignoring the staged hostile environment that provoked the altercation and the troubling pattern of violent, stereotypical portrayals of Black people across many of Bravo’s Black reality franchises.

Research shows that dehumanizing portrayals of Black people on television lead to real-world consequences for Black folks — influencing how we are treated by doctors, judges, teachers and lawmakers. No matter how entertaining, this should be the last fight between Black women that Bravo profits from.

Are you fed up with the violence on TV or do you think it’s “just” for entertainment? How do you feel about the issue?

Your thoughts?

    That wack a** hair pulling wasn’t nothing. Have these ppl not seen the ish that goes on on these other shows.

    All the ish going on in the world and they’re concerned about these hoez talking trash and pulling hair??

    I can’t function…

    • BITCHPLEASEEEEE April 23, 2014

      THE DIFFERENCE IS RHOA IS NOT KNOWN FOR THAT KIND OF VIOLENCE AND NONE OF THE GIRLS ARE ALLOWED TO DO THAT. THEY ALL ABOUT FOREST OF SHADES SO FOR ONE TO REACT TO THAT KIND OF VIOLENCE ATTACK AT WORK CALLS FOR CONCERN.

        Nene is a very rich bytch and above ya’all.

  2. RICHIE_RICH April 23, 2014

    Have they not seen Mob Wives or Bad Girl club. What Porsha did was nothing compared to those shows. Ugh They kill me with this B.s.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 23, 2014

      Porsha is disgusting. She must go!

      • RICHIE_RICH April 23, 2014

        I live for how Porsha Molly woop that A$$…. I like Kenya(only for the drama), but she is just as wrong as Porsha. #teamPorsha sorry.

      • Molly April 23, 2014

        Porshas not the one trying to sleep with other people’s husbands.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 23, 2014

        #TeamKenya

        Porsha didn’t “whoop ass”. All she did was pull her hair. Even the girls at my school in Toronto throw down harder than that. How can you people deny the fact that Kenya won! She got up with her hair well laid and walked off like a boss ass b****, while Porsha was on the floor crying and screaming like a damn fool.

        #Sorry

        + Porsha was talking a whole lot of Shitt about Kenya too. Calling her a s*** from the 90s and talking about her paying the African singer to play her boyfriend. Porsha was wrong and she was foolish to think Kenya wouldn’t react.

  3. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 23, 2014

    Kenya is queen. Porsha is a violent, dumb ass BXTCH who needs to be fired.

    • truth April 23, 2014

        None of your business h**!

    • Mother April 23, 2014

      Kenya is gutter trash, a liar, a hypocrite and a w****.

  4. Molly April 23, 2014

    Girl the hair pulling is so basic compared to what these girls on basketball wives and bad girls club be doin lmao. Even New York vs Pumpkin was more intense then that fight.

  5. Sam Loves Rihanna April 23, 2014

    Of course, ThatGrapeJuice and its BeyHive friends would think Black women fighting each other are “just” for entertainment and that self-respecting Black people who demand for better imagery of Black people created by white gay men and Jews are “over-reacting.”

    Get some damn self-respect and grow the fukk up and want better for yourselves, kids.

    • Baduizm05 April 23, 2014

      See here. It is insulting to decide that black women are not allowed to argue on television in case they “make black women” look bad. Anybody who judges an entire demographic based on the actions of a few people isn’t someone whose opinion should matter anyway.

      Was Porsha wrong to touch her? Yes. But let’s not act as though you would sit there and do nothing if someone was doing that to you. By the way, the props were actually intended for Phaedra but she switched places with Cynthia because she knew what Kenya had in store.

    • RICHIE_RICH April 23, 2014

      Not coming from a Rihanna fan. As if Bitchhhh

      Tell Rihanna that, with her ghetto a$$

  6. HistoRih April 23, 2014

    Not everything that involves black people is a black issue. Kenya and Porsha did not argue because they are black, they argued because they don’t like each other. Plain and simple. This organization didn’t have much to say about Apollo’s criminal ways did they?

  7. Navy Commander April 23, 2014

    Have they never seen bad girls club? Lmao

  8. Molly April 23, 2014

    Not surprised to see this demon Slayriah supporting the disgusting evil whorish Kenya Moore.

    • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 23, 2014

      I’m entitled to my opinion. I don’t accept the violence. #sorry. This is not how a grown ass woman handles a situation. Bye

      • Dance4Dawn April 23, 2014

        You don’t accept violence but don’t remember when Kenya pulled Nene’s ear or threatened to beat Phaedra up when she was pregnant.

      • SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 23, 2014

        The same Nene who choked Kim and and threatened to “slap the dog Shitt” out of Kenya? Bye!

  9. SLAYRIAH CAREY (TOUR DE FORCE) April 23, 2014

    Anyway, like I said before, Kenya is the queen and she is playing the game smart. Still crying @ Porsha thinking there are 265 days in a year. Not to mention the whole Underground Railroad thing and silence after Kenya asked her to spell Sceptre. Lmao. Kenya is gonna twirl her way to the bank with her Trump Cheque. 😀

  10. RICHIE_RICH April 23, 2014

    Kenya Moore is a H**!!!!!!

    The newest cast member of “The Real Housewives of Atlanta” is being outed as a gold digging viper who will do anything for money and fame.

    Now, insiders are revealing former Miss USA (and Detroit native) Kenya Moore as nothing more than a “professional w****”. Don’t believe me.. Ask Mike Tyson.

    Here’s the drop about the ‘Atlanta Housewife”:
    “Kenya Moore is very brave to appear on a popular reality show. She’s the newest addition to Bravo’s RHOA, I guess producers of the show know Kenya is a professional w****. She’s been gold digging since her days in Detroit as a high school student at Cass Tech High.
    Kenya used to date a drug dealer, his name is Mike Evans. By 16-years-old, she was a seasoned vet – I heard she learned that from her grandmother, who raised her. I was told her grandmother trained her and showed her how to be a proper sack-chaser.

    When Kenya won the Miss USA title, all of Hollywood was after her – she went the easy route and got with Mike Tyson. She was spoiled by him, well taken care of by him, he even purchased her a home. But their s** sessions where so bad, she soon stopped seeing Tyson entirely. Mike didn’t care because I heard he video taped their s** acts. When Kenya started to act certain ways with Mike, he passed her to Keith Washington.

    Kenya is all fake – her tits, ass implants and hazel contacts are all paid for by her sponsors. The only thing real about Kenya is her hair. Jacky, if you don’t believe me.. Ask Jay Z. After Jay was finished with her, he passed her over to his football player buddy Larry Johnson.”

    Were Hollywood actors calling Rudolph Moise ‘Captain Save-a-H** when he married Kenya Moore? Of course they were. Don’t believe me.. Ask Martin Lawrence

      But there are ZERO receipts about this though. Key word: ALLEGEDLY.
      #KenyaStaysUnbothered

      Not everything you read online is the Hun. You should know that considering who you Stan for. Bye!

      • Yonce April 23, 2014

        Slayriah you look pathetic for defending a bully.

  13. Xoxo April 23, 2014

    I don’t think ppl need to blame Andy
    This is what happens in the black community
    I’m a black woman, I have friends from races
    But the only women I’ve had problems with are black women
    And the ones on tv just show wut already the community is about
    And also they have to fight to stay on tv since there isn’t that
    many black shows…so they have to bring it, or be cancelled
    But the violence has been there and I’m glad it’s being exposed
    These ppl need to know its not ok
    If u disagree with with ur black friends, it will get physical

  14. Yonce April 23, 2014

    Kenya moore is a bully and her ass finally got checked.

  15. No April 23, 2014

    Blacks in the U.S. are violent. They are always trying to fight SOMEBODY. That’s how they “keep it real”. Real dumb.

  16. Belladonna1363 April 23, 2014

    Most of the black community dosent want to change so if you give 80% of black people a show & they will just make it in to another AHW’s. White CEO’s may love to see black people fight but if said black people brought something else intursting to the table like with other white shows then people would start to like that as long as they looked amazing and had a little bit of Drama. Black People need to change in order for change to happen. 80% of HWOA are black & that’s what they like to see not Game Of Thorns. ?
