On the "Housewives" reunion special, which was taped in March and aired on Bravo earlier this week, Williams and co-star Kenya Moore became embroiled in a physical confrontation. Moore said she was assaulted by Williams, who now is facing a charge of battery.
Williams is the ex-wife of former NFL standout Kordell Stewart. The couple was married from 2011-2013. Williams is also the granddaughter of the late civil rights leader Hosea Williams.
"The View" airs daily at 11 a.m. ET on ABC.
