Porsha Williams engaged to 'RHOA' co-star Falynn's ex Simon Guobadia, fans say she goes 'where money resides'
The latest season of 'Real Housewives of Atlanta' might have come concluded but the drama continues off-screen. Porsha Williams left everybody tongue-tied when the housewife announced her engagement to co-star Falynn Guobadia's ex-husband Simon Guobadia.
Falynn was introduced on season 13 of 'RHOA' ironically as Porsha's friend. In her green room interview Porsha raved about Falynn's fabulous jet-setting lifestyle, and seemed to be genuinely proud and happy for her friend, but little did anybody know what was happening behind the scenes. MEAWW had earlier reported possible trouble in Falynn Guobadia's marriage after she and her husband unfollowed each other on Instagram. In April the reality star confirmed on her Instagram story that her husband and she had decided to part ways after two years of marriage. Just as the dust was beginning to settle, Porsha took to her Instagram on Monday night (May 10) to announce her engagement to Simon.

The housewife posted a picture of herself with Simon, which was accompanied by a long caption explaining that Simon and she began dating just a month ago. "Our relationship began a month ago—yes we are crazy in love. I know it’s fast but we are living life each day to its fullest. I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy and to me, that is what matters most." She also clarified that she had nothing to do with Simon and Falynn's divorce, while also adding that she was no longer friends with her co-star. She wrote, "For all of you that need facts, I get the optics but Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January. I had nothing to do with their divorce filing. That’s between the two of them. Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives."
For those curious about Porsha's baby daddy Dennis McKinley's feelings towards his baby mama's news, Porsha shared that too. "Simon and Dennis are committed to being respectful and supportive of my happiness in this situation, as well as being the best co-parents they can be to baby PJ. Two black men stepping up and being amazing people-let’s praise them!!!!" she added. She concluded her post with, "It’s truly a beautiful moment in my life & we cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together. xoxo P #LoveWins."
Although Porsha didn't mention anything about the engagement she however did flaunt her massive diamond ring. Her new fiance Simon however confirmed that they were indeed engaged on his Instagram account. He too posted a series of pictures of them together while justifying his decision to marry again. He wrote, "’d like to seize this opportunity to thank every well wisher of Porsha and I, whether via phone, text or DM. You affirm my believe that finding love is possible for everyone who genuinely seeks one. Getting married again was never a question in my mind, but when. Did not expect to be blessed with a mate so soon. The interesting thing about life is that it is an individual journey. Porsha and I, with the support of our loved ones have chosen to travel together as one and spread love and positivity to our community which is in desperate need of positive and healthy images of the best versions of ourselves. "
"We travel this road not lightly considering we have being in relationships that have thought us to want and do better for ourselves. I asked her to marry me because we checked ALL of each other’s boxes, and then some. We have done the individual work to sustain a healthy relationship, and I stand next to her, proud that we found each other. What we have is what we wish every single one of you out there - happiness. So when I asked...she said yes. That is ALL that mattered. Thank you again for your love and support. Truly appreciated 🙏🏾 #lovewins," the businessman added.
After hearing the news of Porsha's engagement fans were far from pleased with the housewife and began feeling that she got engaged to Simon just for money. A fan tweeted, "It’s giving very much ‘I want your moneyy’ #Porsha #RHOA." Another fan joked, "Porsha “where the money resides” Williams #rhoa."

"Now that Porsha got an African millionaire as fiance, allegedly pregnant and no need to make her own money I fully expect her to quit the show so she can lay low& avoid backlash. She's always been a punk that can't accept responsibility and criticism for her poor decisions #RHOA," predicted a fan. Another fan pointed, "LOL Porsha fans thinks its love when really it is really lust--for Falynn's bag. Posha finds unattractive men with money and sucks them dry- then she moves on to her next victim. Dennis #1 example #rhoa."
Although most of the reactions to Porsha's news is negative, we hope that the housewife and her fiance are happy.
