Porsha Williams Talks Dinner With NeNe Leakes; Plus, Tonight’s RHOA Virtual Viewing Party

Before we head into another dramatic episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Porsha Williams shares her two cents on her issues with NeNe Leakes. Porsha says she’s trying her hardest to maintain her composure and reveals her desire to keep the door open to a future friendship with NeNe.

On her dinner disaster with NeNe Leakes, she says she wasn’t shocked that things escalated so quickly between them. “NeNe was mad at me at Cynthia’s party, and I was bothered by that Watch What Happens Live clip. I knew we had to still talk things through, so of course, seeing that she had brought Marlo for back up, it was a sure sign she was going to try to show out! The whole time that I was listening to her and defending myself, I just kept thinking that all she had to do was tell the truth. ‘Yes, I said it, and I hate that it made you feel that way.’ That’s literally all she had to say.”

Porsha shares in her blog that a lot of the anger had obviously been festering in NeNe during the time they weren’t speaking. “We hadn’t spoken for two years, so at the time, I didn’t realize that she had somehow built up this aggression towards me. I have to take some ownership for not speaking to NeNe for those two years, but it honestly wasn’t for any specific reason. I tried to reach her a few times, but I should have tried harder. I got busy with the show, work, and dating, and she was busy doing her thing and growing her career, so I didn’t think we were in the place we were in. Either way, looking back on it, I wish I would have tried harder to catch up with her and check in on her, and I wish that she would have done the same for me. As far as her bringing up Kandi…child, that’s another conversation entirely that has nothing to do with NeNe.”


Porsha claims that she’s trying like hell to be zen. A nearly impossible task on this show, surely. “Another thing going through my mind as we were arguing was meditation and breathing. I’ve been trying (and I think it’s working) to become a much calmer person during an argument, and I’m focusing on continuously learning and evolving. I need to focus on what’s important in my life and stop being distracted by words. I’m glad I remained calm and stayed seated in my chair — being calm will always keep me out of trouble! As for NeNe, who knows? The door is not closed…I do want to keep the door open. I guess I’m saying that I hope she can understand what hurt me as well so we can move on — as friends or not. Either way, I’m going to continue to be Porsha, live life, and count my blessings each and every day.”

Tonight is an all new episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta. Meet us here at 8/7 C to snark our way through the drama.
