Who is replacing Porsha Williams on 'RHOA'? Reality TV star reveals her next project
'Next season, I will not be returning to the Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise,' 40-year-old Porsha Williams wrote about her exit
Another housewife from 'The Real Housewives of Atlanta' is giving up on the peach. Days after Cynthia Rowley announced her exit from one of the biggest iterations of the 'RH' series, Porsha Williams has declared she is backing out from Season 13 as well. The fan-favorite reality star has been a part of the show for nine seasons over the past decade and she took to Instagram to let her fans in on the news. “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,” Porsha said.
Like her fellow housewives, Porsha too has had her share of iconic moments. Some of those memories have been close to her heart, for instance, introducing her daughter Pilar Jhena to the world in Season 11. "The birth of PJ, is probably, that’s hands down my number one TV moment ever in life," she said. In the same season, her then-boyfriend Dennis McKinley proposed to her. "The other super, super special moment had to have been when I got engaged on national television. My whole life has been on TV. And it all has been amazing. Well, most of it," she said. The two are no longer together and Porsha just proposed to her now-fiance Simon Guobadia earlier this week.
Who is replacing Porsha Williams on 'RHOA'?
"After ten life-changing, gratifying, incredible years, it is finally time to begin my next chapter. Next season, I will not be returning to the Real Housewives of Atlanta franchise. 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 want to thank Bravo, Truly Original, and Andy Cohen for this opportunity, and all the show’s producers, editors, and assistants, for working tirelessly every day to create our show.
"I have so much love and endless gratitude for my Bravo family and supporters. You’ve made the past decade a truly special one. One where I've dealt with unbelievable highs and unbelievable lows, and I can honestly say I would not have made it through some of them without the unconditional love and support I have gotten from all of you," she wrote announcing her exit.

As for the rest, you’ll just have to wait and see! Love ya!"
