Ex-RHOA star Porsha Williams is speaking out about her demotion, saying she was blindsided by the announcement. Read her statement inside about her next steps and new beau.
After two-years as a peach-holding housewife on Bravo's RHOA, Porsha Williams is setting her sights on her new gig at DISH NATION and her new relationship. But first....she released a statement about Bravo dropping her as a castmember.
After a long season of filming, and giving my all, I wasblindsided by the announcementfrom the network that I was demoted from ‘Housewife Status,’ but would remain on the show in a ‘Friend’ capacity,”
Porsha also mentioned her new relationship, saying she'll be "taking baby steps towards nurturing my relationship with my new love!!!"
Aha! We sensed that the term "baby steps" references a pic she posted on Instagram (and deleted) of Philadelphia Eagles star LeSean McCoy which she captioned "#baby steps." Congrats on your new boo!
Here's her statement she released via her day job at Dish Nation:
"This is not an easy time for me right now, but I want let everyone to know that I loved being a ‘Housewife’ on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I am thankful for Bravo for the opportunity but it’s not goodbye, you will see me on the show throughout the season sharing and bonding with the other women and I promise to stay connected with my fans as I start an exciting new time in my life.
After a long season of filming, and giving my all, I was blindsided by the announcement from the network that I was demoted from ‘Housewife Status,’ but would remain on the show in a ‘Friend’ capacity.
Unfortunately, I can only be PORSHA, and portraying anything else, would not be genuine nor honest. This moment is bittersweet, but God has been so amazing to me, and I think this is a perfect time for me to spread my wings, and finally focus on all of my upcoming projects.
In addition to having my recurring role on RHOA, I will be able to focus my attention on my career as an Entertainment Correspondent on DISH NATION on the Fox Network, recording my album, building my businesses, and taking baby steps towards nurturing my relationship with my new love!!!
This is the beginning of a new chapter in my life, and I will be giving my fans & supporters another chance to watch my growth as I take on the world in my own special way very soon!! I am so Thankful for all that #TEAMPORSHA does to keep me INSPIRED every day! Stay Tuned…
Earlier this week, Porsha also posted a photo of herself wearing an oxygen mask. But she's ok. A statement from Dish Nation said she was "...simply feeling under the weather and tried to nip it in the bud by seeing a doctor for treatment."
Hmm...it's odd that RHOA would kick Porsha to the curb now. She finally has a storyline! On Twitter, RHOA star NeNe Leakes tweeted that she'll miss Porsha.
Rick Ross and R. Kelly have teamed up for new visuals for their track “Keep Doing That (Rich Chick). And we have the behind-the-scenes pics. Plus, Kendrick Lamar popped up during Prince’s album release concert at his Paisley Park studio. Get your music fix inside…
MMG head honcho Rick Ross trekked it to Atlanta to shoot the visuals for his track “Keep Doing That (Rich Chick) featuring R&B legend R. Kelly. “Keep Doing That” is Rozay’s lead single for his upcoming album Hood Billionaire (November 24th).
R. Kelly, Young Jeezy, Jermaine Dupri, DJ Khaled and model chick Jessica White make appearances in the video, shooting from a mansion in Buckhead. Looks like Jessica will be playing (at least one of) Rozay's "rich chicks".
Along with the lavish furs and unlimited cigars, there was also plenty of bubbly on deck. The Black Bottle Girls were on hand to pour up the Belaire Rosé.
Ross and Jermaine Dupri stopped for a photo-op in all white in between takes.
Young Jeezy made sure to grab his own personal bottle of bubbly. Sure he could use a drink considering his recent legal woes. Bishop T.D. Jakes has filed a lawsuit against him (and Kendrick Lamar) after they sampled a speech made by the pastor for their "Holy Ghost" remix.
Then DJ Khaled hopped in on the group shot.
And during a Prince concert...
The Purple One kicked off two new albums, Art Official and his band 3RDEYEGIRL’s PLECTRUMELECTRUM, with a concert at his Paisley Park studio in Minneapolis yesterday. And who does he tap to surprise his fans? “I” rapper Kendrick Lamar. Kendrick hit the stage for a surprise performance on the rare track “What’s My Name” from Prince’s 1998 album, Crystal Ball.
The 20-minute Prince concert streamed live on Yahoo!, which also included a behind-the-scenes tour of the 65,000 square foot studio. Nice!

Diddy had a moment after watching his ex-girlfriend Jennifer Lopez shake her donk in her new video “Booty” featuring Iggy Azalea.
During a promo run for Revolt TV's upcoming music conference, he sat down with Access Hollywood Live and gave his honest opinion about his ex-boo’s new vid. He said,
"Oh my God, oh my God! I am so lucky to have that great woman in my history. She is one of the greatest I've ever seen. Go girl!"
He goes on to say the 45-year-old singer’s “ass”ets are a body of work and that Kim K parts have nothing on JLo.
"[Her booty] is great. It's a work of art. It's something that will go down in history. Also her talent, her drive, her determination," he added. "She will never give up. She's a great friend of mine... that thing is just incredible.”
When asked if Kim Kardashian's butt lives up to J.Lo's, Diddy responded with an emphatic "no way!"
Nas and his sexiness hit the red carpet for his Nas: Time Is Illmatic documentary NYC premiere. Peep his pics and shots of LaLa Anthony, Busta Rhymes, rapper Treach and more inside…
LAWD! Nas cleans up very nice. He was the man of the hour for his upcoming documentary Nas: Time Is Illmatic, which premiered at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC last night.
Nas’ little brother Jabari “Jungle” Jones hit the carpet to support his big bro. Jungle is actually featured in the film as he gives his take on how life was like growing up in poverty. We hear he stole the show with his animated story-telling and insights into his brother’s life.
