'Real Housewives' Star

Attacked

In Massive Brawl

Huge brawl on "Real Housewives of Atlanta" ... sources tell TMZ.

"Real Housewives of Atlanta" cast member Brandon DeShazer -- Kenya Moore's assistant -- was seriously roughed up last night by Phaedra Parks' husband Apollo Nida ... all over beef stemming from some dumb workout video, a witness tells TMZ.

According to witnesses, Apollo flew into a rage and "violently attacked" Brandon at a party that was being filmed for the upcoming season ... and it was all caught on tape.

The witnesses say Apollo -- who once served 5 years in prison for racketeering -- had to be restrained by 7 male crew members before finally retreating.

We're told Apollo was pissed because Brandon and Kenya had allegedly agreed to produce a workout video starring Phaedra, but instead produced their own, cutting Phaedra out.  We're told Apollo felt slighted, and blamed Brandon for stabbing Phaedra in the back.

Apollo has a different story, telling TMZ, there was a fight on the set, he tried to break it up and got attacked by Brandon. Apollo says at that point he defended himself and everything got out of control.

Dramatic.

Calls to Bravo weren't returned.

Actually, I get a kick out of Kenya's narcissism. It adds humor to an otherwise mundane show. But she ain't a housewife. Are any of them? What would be funny is if it turns out she's not hot for Appollo, but for Miss Phaedra. Now THAT I would believe!

This was last season... They don't have anything better to fight about. Phaedra isn't cute, and Kenya is old and has bad skin. Neither video is gonna sell, so why can't we all just get along?

Brawl probably started because of the insistance on calling these TVG celebrities stars when they clearly are not.

Typical of TMZ audience. Turn it into a "race war."

Can we just address these specific idiots, instead of putting their actions on an entire race? Human beings are foolish in general. Trying to make everyone appear "different" from one another is pointness because the same things happen in every other race. Famous or not.

FTR, the greater percentage of blacks in America are NOT rappers, singers gansters or entertainers (realty TV stars are entertainers). Believe it or not, there are many blacks that do other things. They just don't make it on dumb gossip sites like TMZ because...um...why would TMZ report on them if they're not famous?

Stupid idiots on this site in general. Get a life.

If Kenya is once again in control of RHWOA this new season I'm gone. This woman is hateful and seems very unstable, she needs help not airtime.

The brawl took place in an episode that should be called Couples Therapy Bad Karma Pajama Party leads to drama and trauma when they get in each other faces to invade spaces cause they can't keep their places. They would get better results by not hurling insults and having a trained professional facilitating them who can clear the air when tempers flair and has no tolerance for mayhem.
