'Real Housewives of Atlanta' fans slam Dennis for re-proposing to Porsha in 'coercion' move after cheating on her
Fans refused to see this gesture as romantic and felt that Dennis was "coercing" and "peer-pressuring" Porsha into accepting his proposal
Dennis McKinley and Porsha Williams' tumultuous relationship has been well documented on 'Real Housewives of Atlanta'.
We saw the housewife being swept off her feet by the hotdogs mogul, and before we knew it the famous housewife was pregnant with their child and engaged to him. Just as Porsha was getting closer to her "happily-ever-after", things went south when allegations of Dennis' infidelity began doing the rounds.
As if it wasn't bad enough that Dennis cheated on Porsha when she was pregnant, he took back the engagement ring he gave her after she decided to split with him.
The first few episodes of Season 12 of 'RHOA' saw Porsha struggling with her newfound role as a single mother, while Dennis tried his best to find his way back into her life. He kept sending her flowers and notes in the hopes of being forgiven by his baby mamma.
The couple attended counseling together and that helped them get some clarity about the situation as things seemed to be getting better between them.
The latest episode saw Dennis flying all the way to Toronto to surprise Porsha with an engagement ring. This wasn't just any engagement ring — it is the same ring he took back from her after their split.
The latest episode ended with a snippet of him re-proposing to Porsha in front of everyone during a gathering.
Fans refused to see this gesture as romantic and felt that Dennis was "coercing" and "peer-pressuring" Porsha into accepting his proposal.
A fan tweeted, "Dennis, you lowdown cheating dweeb. Re-proposing to Porsha with the same tarnished ass ring in front of dozens of people and a camera crew isn't romantic. It's COERCION. #RHOA."
Another fan wrote, "Dennis popping up on Porsha's vacation with the intent to propose in public while they're still figuring things out after he cheated is TRASH. That some toxic peer pressure type shxt right here! #RHOA."
Fans expressed their displeasure with several tweets directed at the couple from the choice of the ring to Porsha falling back into his arms.
A fan wrote, "I'm still bothered that Dennis trifling ass asked for the ring back after he cheated on her... he should get her a new ring and I don't think he showed any remorse but Porsha's into him for whatever reason so good luck girl #RHOA."
Another fan expressed similar thoughts: "Dennis' low down cheating, grimy ass is really gonna re-propose to Porsha with the same exact ring he demanded back after being exposed for cheating on her while she was pregnant with his child. And she's finna say yes. On camera #RHOA."
"So Dennis just pops up with a ring that he pulls out of his pocket. No box or nothing. And he has no plan for this re-proposal. He’s giving Porsha bare minimum and she's eating it up. Also, did y’all see that dusty ripped piece of paper attached to the flowers? #RHOA," pointed out a fan.
'Real Housewives of Atlanta' Season 12 airs every Sunday at 8 pm ET/PT on Bravo.
