“My Brain Was Just Going So Fast”: Porsha Finally Addresses Railroad Gate

January 6, 2014  |  

You know Andy Cohen. When you appear on “Watch What Happens Live,” he’s not going to take it easy on you. So it should come as no surprise that he came for Porsha when she appeared on the show recently. And you know what we’re all still wondering about… The scandal that’s come to be known as “Railroad Gate.” How did Porsha, a descendant of Hosea Williams, a renowned civil rights leader, not understand the concept of the Underground Railroad? You may remember a few episodes ago, when the women were touring a church in Savannah, Porsha was under the impression that there was an actual train on the Underground Railroad and asked how it fit down there, below the church. Poor thing. So when he got her in the hot seat, Andy was quick to inquire. Porsha was only supposed to have 20 seconds to respond. But since she needed much more time than that, she was allotted a bit more. Here’s what she had to say.

“First, I’d like to say that when I watched that I realized that was another Porsha moment. You know a little airy there. Just a brain lapse. I felt like I definitely needed to correct that even for myself. I went back and just brushed up on what I already know. One thing about it that’s a very sensitive topic for me. I do want to represent that part of my life and my legacy better than I did.” 

Yes, girl you have to do better. But that still didn’t explain what her thought process was at that exact moment. So, Andy asked her in the most simplistic terms.

Did you actually believe there was an actual railroad like the subway?

“At that moment we were all trying to figure something out and my brain was just going to fast and it was just going faster than I was speaking. And I literally couldn’t get it together at that moment.”

Sigh. I don’t know if Porsha really knew what she claimed she did. If so, that’s one hell of a brain lapse. What do you think?

You can watch the whole interrogation in the video below.
