The epic fight between Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey has finally played out during the recent “First Look” segment of the most recent episode of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Though teased in previous previews of the episode, the actual fight was shown in more detail during the “First Look” sneak peek of RHOA.
Being called a “#RHOA BFF Showdown” and other terms in the Bravo videos shown below, footage displays that Cynthia and Porsha got into a huge argument when Porsha’s “b****” comment seemed to be taken the wrong way. Plenty of feelings were obviously brewing beneath the surface, and lots of alcohol was flowing on the boat. Kenya Moore was the one welcoming all of her RHOA cast mates onto the boat, and the women initially joked that it was a great trip to make up for the super-heated preview of Kenya’s hair products seen in the previous episode of RHOA.
Cynthia blew up on Porsha as both women dealt with issues with the men in their lives. Williams had recently been stood up by her younger boyfriend, Duke, for a pre-scheduled sexy FaceTime session. Bailey had been dealing with the fallout from a video of her husband, Peter, getting cozy with another woman that went viral online. Cynthia broached the topic of divorce with Peter, but the duo decided to give it the old college try.
It wasn’t only Cynthia getting into an argument with Porsha that caused disruption on the boat. Kenya also got into a tete a tete with Shamea, but the fight between Cynthia and Porsha was almost as epic as the fight between Porsha and Kenya from previous seasons. Whereas prior episodes showed Porsha pulling Kenya’s hair after Kenya waved props like a scepter in Porsha’s face, the fight between Porsha and Cynthia displayed Cynthia kicking Porsha off of her, and Porsha being held down while she ranted and raved.
After the fight, Cynthia called Peter and asked him to come home. Peter agreed to come home to be by his wife’s side during the troubling time, but the next episode will also show Cynthia admonishing Peter for saying that Cynthia kicked Porsha. On her end, Porsha’s mom showed up at her house, carrying a ton of food to help her baby get over the fight with Cynthia. The other RHOA cast mates discussed the fight, along with claims that Porsha suffered cuts on her stomach. Porsha showed her mom some injuries on her body, along with bruises that she said she suffered during the fight.

Kim Fields was pretty upset over the fish — driven to tears, even — as Fields described that such behavior wasn’t common in her circles. Kim stated that she wasn’t accustomed to such a gathering going “zero to 100 real quick,” as Drake would rhyme.
Cynthia has been known as a famous model who transitioned to reality TV star fame when Bailey joined the cast of the Real Housewives of Atlanta. Previously the best friend of Nene Leakes, Bailey struck out on her own to make a name for herself as she married Peter Bailey and went through her own struggles with fibroids and her modeling agency launch on the show.
Bailey still gets a chance to show off her modeling chops now and again, such as when Cynthia attended an event by Macy’s during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Fall 2015 in New York.
