Looks like there’s more to the scuffle between “Real Housewives of Atlanta” co-stars Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore.

Williams, who posed for the mug shot above, was charged with simple battery after a reported altercation between her and Moore during the taping of the show’s reunion episode.

Williams, 31, the ex-wife of former NFL quarterback Kordell Stewart, was booked and released at the Fulton County Jail in Atlanta Wednesday, her rep told E! News. She left on a $2,000 bond, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Did ‘Real Housewives’ Stars Kenya Moore and Porsha Williams Get Into a Brawl?

“She is charged with one misdemeanor count of simple battery stemming from an incident that occurred during the taping of the ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ reunion episode,” Williams’ rep told E! “Although the claim is unfounded, Ms. Williams is fully cooperating with investigators and looks forward to clearing her name.”

It’s unclear who made the formal allegation.

A rep for Moore last month denied that any brawl took place between the two stars.

“Miss Moore was not engaged in any physical altercation,” her rep told ABC News. “She adamantly condones violence and would never be involved in such behavior.”

Moore, 43, also tweeted, “one thing u will NEVER see me do is fight. Your brain and tongue are your most powerful weapons.”

How Porsha Williams Learned of Her Divorce From Kordell Stewart

Reports of a scuffle first surfaced in late March.

“A fight broke out that had to be broken up,” People magazine quoted a source.

Since then, other cast members have spoken out.

Kandi Burruss, Williams’ pal on the show, told Bethenny Frankel on her show airing today, “I can’t tell you everything, but she [Williams] was pushed. Yeah, she [Williams] definitely was provoked, I would think.”

Andy Cohen, who hosted the reunion show, which will air Sunday, also confirmed an altercation took place on the latest episode of “Ask Andy.”

“They stood up, I think I stood up pretty quickly. It was such a flash, and it started to escalate,” he said. “I was trying to prevent it, and a couple other people jumped in, too. To me, it came out of nowhere. The other women felt Kenya provoked her a bit. I was so shocked and surprised.”

He added, “I think it’s gross. And I think it just totally inappropriate. It’s wrong. It’s not entertaining. It’s just bad.”
