Porsha Williams: It Took Motherhood (And A Few Good Men) To Help Me Bury The Hatchet With Kenya Moore
It was just a few years ago, during Real Housewives of Atlanta Season 6 in 2014, that things between Porsha Williams and Kenya Moore reached their lowest point and Porsha was literally dragging her on-screen nemesis by her hair to the ground. Five years later though, they are in the best place they’ve ever been, supporting one another at events, sharing laughs and good vibes. Things are so good between them, Porsha said she was hoping to see Kenya back on RHOA for Season 12 (Kenya has reportedly already started filming).
“I love Kenya,” she said while taking on the keynote speaker responsibility at Atlanta’s Ultimate Women’s Expo this past weekend. “Kenya and I, our relationship has grown leaps and bounds.”
While it’s a shame that so much of this kumbaya moment has happened off-screen, it’s nice to know that they are calling one another friends after previously being foes. So what changed?
According to Porsha, it was motherhood.
While being interviewed by Trina Braxton about her experiences on the show and with the women, she said welcoming children changed their perspectives for the better — Kenya’s first, then her own.
“I think that before we were able to share motherhood, I think motherhood changed her when she got pregnant,” she said. “I think her marriage changed her.”
Porsha also noted that they both may have fallen victim to pressures to find the right men and have kids, and they may have at times taken that out on one another before finding Marc Daly and Dennis McKinley (though it’s unclear where Porsha and Dennis currently stand).
“I just feel like, as single women, y’all know, society can put a lot of pressure on you and act like you’re incomplete ’cause you ain’t got a man. I may have fallen victim to doing that to people sometimes, and I may have fallen victim to people treating me that way,” she said. “So I feel like when you get someone who loves you the right way…a great man who’s a great supporter in your life can change you. I feel like a baby will change you, and it will open you up and you won’t be worried about small stuff. I feel like that has happened to me, that has happened to her. She and I have definitely bonded.”
