Given what was going on in Porsha Williams’ personal life after season 13 of Real Housewives of Atlanta, I don’t think anyone was surprised when she announced her exit from the show. Porsha, who joined RHOA for season 5, had a good long run. But when her relationship with the still married Simon Guobadia came to light, fans weren’t pleased. At the time we were introduced to Simon, he was still very much married to “friend of” Falynn Guobadia. And while Posha defended the timeline of her relationship with Simon, she was dubbed a home wrecker.
After dropping a few hints, Porsha announced she was leaving the show in September of 2021 with an emotional post on her Instagram. She wrote, “This was a difficult decision to not only make, but also come to terms with. It’s one I have put a lot of thought into and because of that, I know it’s the right one.” I’m sure her exit difficult decision was made easier by getting her own spinoff, Porsha’s Family Matters. The show centered around Porsha and Simon’s family coming together as their relationship progressed and they planned their wedding. And included plenty of family drama.
While the relationship, coupled with the show, put a bad tastes in the mouths of many fans, Kandi Burruss isn’t opposed to Porsha coming back to RHOA. She recently told E! News, “There’s always gonna be room for Porsha.” Kandi added, “I honestly think she does think about it sometimes. She definitely said it to me that it does cross her mind. So I mean, I don’t know. She can come back at any moment.”
The two former castmates, once at odds over a huge scandal on the show, still keep in touch. Kandi revealed that the two recently hung out. She shared, “We were just not too long ago at [co-star] Shamea [Morton]’s house. We were there for her birthday and housewarming.”
There’s certainly good reason for Porsha to want to come back to RHOA. While she might also snag a wedding special with Simon, Porsha’s Family Matters didn’t really change the fans’ opinion on Porsha. If anything, it made it worse. She likely left RHOA because she knew the cast would drag her for her messy relationship. And having her own spinoff would be a better way to control the narrative. But all it did was confirm that Porsha’s status as a fan favorite was waning.
Despite all this, I’m sure Porsha still has plenty of fans that would love to see her return to RHOA. Now the real question is, does RHOA need her at this point?
