Porsha Williams is speaking out about her demotion on season 7 of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Today when the new recycled cast photo came out, Bravo had Photoshopped Porsha out of the photo and put in newcomer Claudia Jordan. While Porsha’s role was up in the air, she was shocked to see she was only being referred to as a “friend” of the Housewives this time around!
Porsha shared a statement tonight via her rep, “This is not an easy time for me right now, but I want let everyone to know that I loved being a “Housewife” on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I am thankful for Bravo for the opportunity but it’s not goodbye, you will see me on the show throughout the season sharing and bonding with the other women and I promise to stay connected with my fans as I start an exciting new time in my life.”

Porsha continued, explaining her shock to find out she had been downgraded. “After a long season of filming, and giving my all, I was blindsided by the announcement from the network that I was demoted from “Housewife Status”, but would remain on the show in a “Friend” capacity. Unfortunately, I can only be PORSHA, and portraying anything else, would not be genuine nor honest. This moment is bittersweet, but God has been so amazing to me, and I think this is a perfect time for me to spread my wings, and finally focus on all of my upcoming projects. In addition to having my recurring role on RHOA, I will be able to focus my attention on my career as an Entertainment Correspondent on DISH NATION on the Fox Network, recording my album, building my businesses, and taking baby step towards nurturing my relationship with my new love!!! This is the beginning of a new chapter in my life, and I will be giving my fans & supporters another chance to watch my growth as I take on the world in my own special way very soon!! I am so Thankful for all that #TEAMPORSHA does to keep me INSPIRED every day! Stay Tuned…”
TMZ claims that Porsha was demoted because she was difficult to deal with this season and instead of reconciling with Kenya Moore, they got into it again and they decided to whittle down her screen time.
