On March 27th, an altercation occurred between Miss USA 1993 Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams during the taping of the Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 6 reunion show. Video of the entire altercation aired on April 21, 2014 on the Bravo Network. 



Miss Moore has since filed a misdemeanor assault charge against Miss Williams.  Williams' attorney, Joe Habachy, released a statement stating that Williams looks forward to clearing her name, plans to contest the charge and will file aggravated assault charges against Moore.

Kenya Moore has also released a statement regarding the altercation:
During the taping of the Reunion Episode for the Real Housewives of Atlanta, I was violently attacked by Porsha Williams. The episode, which aired tonight, Sunday, April 20, 2014, was taped in front of an audience of over 50 people, which included cast, crew, guests and executives, who served as witnesses. I called 911 to report the incident. The Atlanta police conducted an independent investigation, which included viewing the raw footage of the incident. As a result, Porsha Williams was charged with battery. The authorities will decide her fate, not me.
There are many inflammatory statements made by cast members to and about each other particularly during the reunion tapings. Many have made untrue, denigrating, disparaging, and inflammatory statements against me in an attempt to provoke me, but I have never reacted in a violent way. My intellect and my brain are my most powerful weapons—not my fists. If people get so angry that they lose control and admittedly “black out” and resort to violence, those persons must be held responsible for their actions. Being a cast member on a reality show does not absolve people of their rights.
After being repeatedly attacked by an abusive boyfriend at the age of 17, if someone puts their hands on me, I will not just let it go. With that said, I sought self-defense training developed for the Israeli military. I’ve also been trained in weapons. I can take someone down in three moves. It took discipline for me not to respond in kind. As violent responses escalate, they can quickly result in severe injury or even death.
Being the second Black woman to be crowned Miss USA, there are little girls who look up to me. I would never want those girls, my nieces, or my future children to see me fighting anyone. That’s the lesson we should all want to send, especially to young people—that no matter how angry someone makes you feel by what they say to or about you, violence is never an option. #stoptheviolence
Today's show question is: Has reality shows gone too far when it airs the violent altercation between cast mates for ratings.

MY SISTER'S KEEPER: HOW THE CHURCH AND MSM FAILED DR. TELEKA PATRICK

This show will focus on how the church and mainstream media failed to help or hold accountable each other when it came to how they handled the Marvin Sapp vs. Teleka Patrick matter.  

Dr. Patrick was the 30 year old first year resident doctor who disappeared on December 5, 2013, after trying unsuccessfully to book a room at the Radisson Plaza Hotel in Kalamazoo, Michigan.  Later that evening, Dr. Patrick's car was found abandoned of the westbound side of I-94 in Porter, Indiana.

Since her disappearance, reports surfaced that Gospel Music Legend and Grand Rapids Pastor Marvin Sapp had taken out a personal protection order against the young doctor in September 2013.  In the court documents, Sapp alleges that Dr. Patrick moved to Michigan to pursue a relationship with him and claimed him as her husband, even though he spurned her advances.  Sapp also wrote that she joined his church, contacted his children, has been to his home and sent over 400 pages of correspondences to him which he never responded to.  Police officials investigating the Patrick case made it clear that Pastor Sapp is not a suspect, but a victim of a stalker.

Dr. Patrick's ex-husband, Ismael Calderon, claims that she suffered from an undiagnosed mental illness that made her paranoid and hear voices. To date, no one has corroborated his claims about Teleka's mental state. 

Tragically, on April 6, 2014, four months after her disappearance, Dr. Teleka Patrick's body was found floating in Lake Charles, just yards away from where her car was abandoned.

DISCLAIMER: The host does not have any direct knowledge of what actually happened to Dr. Teleka Patrick.  All opinions and views on this show are solely based on the information provided on social media and various news outlet websites.  Our goal is to provide a platform to share the impact Dr. Patrick's story has had on our lives.
