Is Porsha Williams about to join Kim Zolciak in the box seats at NFL games?! If there’s one way to get back on Real Housewives Of Atlanta in a full-time role it’s dating (and marrying) a professional athlete – but only if he’ll actually appear on the show. We don’t want no more mystery men!
Of course, Porsha has been down that road before when she was briefly Mrs. Kordell Stewart, but that didn’t go so well. Apparently once bitten doesn’t always mean twice shy where professional athletes are concerned, but it does apply to airing your relationship drama on reality TV!

Contrary to popular belief, while RHOA was filming Porsha was not being lavished with gifts by a mysterious married African oil baron (although I wouldn’t be surprised if she said she was just to piss off a certain former Miss WHO-S-A…), instead she was rumored to be dating Philadelphia Eagles player LeSean McCoy! Porsha won’t confirm they were an item, because the NFL-er in question’s coach
saw what happened to Kroy Biermann and Bob Whitfield didn’t want him participating in reality TV while playing football – and Bravo blamed Porsha!
“What happened, I think … I was dating someone at the time, and of course, as part of the show when we sign up, it’s about showing who you date,” Porsha explained on WWHL. “He was playing football, and his coach told him that he didn’t want him to film until later in the season.”
“So unfortunately, I had filmed and shown some of my personal life, had told the producers that I would show him, but I couldn’t show him until the very, very end and by then it was a little too late,” Porsha reveals. By too late, Porsha meant, producers had already decided she didn’t give them enough of a storyline for her to receive a peach and had decided to promote Claudia Jordan instead.
Porsha also shares that she and producers differed over where to take her storyline and she wanted it to involve less of her personal life after two very emotional seasons and that frustrated the network. “They wanted a lot of the dating, and I totally get that because I’m coming from divorce,” she explains. “But I wanted them to film me performing ‘Flatline’ and my hair-line NAKED.”
Porsha admits that was tough news to take initially but she is not bitter because it was a blessing in disguise. “I found out towards the end but you know what? It actually was a little less stressful. I love being part of the Bravo family. As you see, it just gives me more time to sit in and read.” Sit and read… Oh haha – I read that wrong; silly me – Porsha doesn’t read!
Hey – maybe Porsha will be holding a peach next year as NeNe Leakes‘ replacement…
