Porsha Williams is gearing up to walk down the aisle… again! The reality star announced that she is newly engaged, but the tea is piping hot and spilling as fans began to deduce beforehand who her fiance is. Porsha is on her way to becoming the new Mrs. Simon Guobadia.
Speculations began to arise when on Mother’s Day, the star of Real Housewives of Atlanta posted a picture of herself standing in between Guobadia and her baby’s father, Dennis McKinley, to whom she was previously engaged. Fans quickly noticed a difference in Porsha has her left ring finger carried some weight on it.
Goubadia, who also appeared on RHOA with his now-estranged wife, Falynn Goubadia, shared recently that they were splitting. The pair had been together for two years, and according to a report from The Jasmine Brand, decided to mutually split due to alleged infidelity on Falynn’s part.
With Porsha’s post and the big rock on her finger in the picture, the speculations worsened when a comment by McKinley was seen under the post offering congratulations. “Congrats P,” he exclaimed. “Cheers to your next chapter! Happy Mother’s Day.”
After hours of being unconfirmed, fans had a field day on social media. Finally, Porsha would come forward with a declaration, and explanation, along with a selfie confirming the couple’s new status.
“Our relationship began a month ago—yes we are crazy in love,” wrote Porsha. “I know it’s fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most.”
She then expressed that she understood “the optics” but went ahead to explain that the divorce between the two has indeed been “settled.”
“Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled,” she continued. “Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives.” Porsha also shared that her ex would be a part of their lives as they continue to co-parent their daughter.
“Simon and Dennis are committed to being respectful and supportive of my happiness in this situation, as well as being the best co-parents they can be to baby PJ. Two black men stepping up and being amazing people-let’s praise them!!!!”
Concurrently, Simon confirmed the engagement on his Instagram page as well. “I asked her to marry me because we checked ALL of each other’s boxes, and then some,” he wrote.
Following the engagement announcement, it didn’t take fans long to find footage of Falynn speaking on her ‘friendship’ with Porsha Williams. Just a little over a month ago (March 21, 2021), Falynn appeared as a special guest on Kandi Burruss’ Youtube series, ‘Speak On It.’ During the interview, Kandi inquired about Falynn’s history with Porsha Williams.
“When you first came on to the show, you came on as a friend of Porsha.. so what was y’all history?,” Kandi asked.
“You know what.. It was moreso through Dennis and Simon. They knew each other. They’re in the same industry. You know.. We own a nightclub called, Republic. Dennis was in that industry and Simon was also in the restaurant industry […] At some point in time, Porsha and I got to meet and she was really sweet. She has always been very real and genuine, and we clicked,” Falynn replied.
