Porsha Williams sent The Real Housewives of Atlanta fans into a frenzy when she confirmed her newfound romance with Simon Guobadia, the ex-husband of her former friend Falynn Guobadia. In the days leading up to the announcement, Porsha fueled engagement rumors after a photo of her wearing a giant diamond ring surfaced on social media. Her ex-fiancé Dennis McKinley hinted at the big news that was on the horizon.
The scandal surrounding Porsha Williams’ new relationship stems from Simon’s brief appearance on RHOA season 13. Porsha was the one who introduced the housewives to Falynn, who was titled “Porsha’s friend” at the time. But somewhere between filming the scene and wrapping the three-part reunion, Porsha found time to spark up a flame with Simon amid his divorce from Falynn. When confirming their relationship in a lengthy Instagram caption, Porsha declared that she and Falynn “are not friends.” The fans have been blasting Porsha for the blatant betrayal, while Porsha prepares for her upcoming three-part special on her life.

It was Mother’s Day when the Dish Nation star first fueled the engagement rumors. “Happy Mother’s Day to me and all the other mothers out there! What a wonderful day!” she wrote in an Instagram post (included below). Porsha was showing how she celebrated the holiday with her ex-fiancé and a small group of friends that included Simon. But when looking at the body language in the photos, Porsha’s left hand rested on Simon’s shoulder while Dennis stood next to the couple smiling like a good friend. “Congrats P! Cheers to your next chapter! Happy Mother’s Day,” Dennis wrote in the comments, as captured by Page Six. His words sent fans guessing on what he was congratulating his ex about.
After wondering if she was pregnant with another child, it became clear that the reality star was wearing a giant-sized diamond ring on her finger. That was the same hand Porsha Williams placed on Simon’s shoulder. “Girl what’s tea?,” one user wrote. “What is going on cuz I don’t like internet just filling in blanks oh, they messy when they do so.” Another fan asked if the ring had anything to do with her storyline for next season. The next day, Porsha returned to social media to post up a selfie alongside Simon and confirm that they are happily in love. “Our relationship began a month ago—yes we are crazy in love,” she said before providing a timeline and claiming she had nothing to do with Simon’s divorce from Falynn.
For her part, Falynn released a statement thanking people for their support as she deals with this public betrayal. Real Housewives of Atlanta fans are anticipating Porsha’s upcoming three-part special that will share details of her life. They’re hoping she will provide context on how she managed to fall head-over-heels for Simon in just one month.
