We love WE TV’s “Bridezilla”. But we came to love it even more when the show featured, the self-proclaimed “Black Barbie” Porsha. We couldn’t help but laugh at her antics. Trying to sabotage her fiancé’s bachelor party, calling her bridesmaids hairy beasts and cussing out her fiancé’s baby mama the day before the wedding were just a few of the scenarios caught on camera. Madame Noire sat down with this former Bridezilla to discuss her marriage, her fans and the lace-front seen around the world. Check out the recording of the interview as you read along.

How did you decide that you were going to do the show?
During the process of me planning, I started cutting people because nobody was helping me with the wedding at all. So I started cutting my sisters, I started cutting my mom. And they were like ‘we’re going to sign you up for “Bridezilla”. My oldest sister was like ‘let’s sign her up, let’s sign her up.’ I had no idea that they did it. And like six months later they called me and I was screaming and hollering because I couldn’t believe that the show had called me.
Why do you think your sister and mother thought that you were a Bridezilla?
I was screaming. I was hollering. I was throwing stuff. I was going off on people. Everything. They said I truly fit the characteristics of a Bridezilla.
Would you say you’re like that all the time or would you say the wedding really stressed you out and that was just a one-time thing?
As far as the shank (?) and the prank phone calls and stuff like that, that’s normal. I think the cursing and me physically attacking them I think that was all the wedding.
Were you nervous about how you were going to be portrayed on television?
I was not embarrassed at all. I’m heavyset. Whatever was going to show was going to show.
You’re still cool with your family and friends that were in your wedding?
Yeah. We went out this weekend. We all are still close.
Knowing what you put your bridesmaids through, would you be willing to endure that for someone else?
Yeah I would. It was funny!
