Tamala Jones Explains Why She Called Out Porsha Williams; Porsha Fires Back
Last week we told you that actress Tamala Jones called out RHoA star Porsha Williams over rumors that Porsha is engaged in a hot and heavy romance with Teodoro Nguema Obiang Mangue, son of Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo, President of Equatorial Guinea. Though Porsha quickly came forward to clear up the rumors, she must not have come forward quickly enough. In no time, Tamala released a statement calling her out.
“Miss Porsha Williams … Now you know you should shame the devil & tell the truth! U grew up in the church & lying was never [ok] … You may have a man, but the one you’re claiming belongs to me! Check your pr or your head but don’t step on my toes,” Tamala tweeted.
After receiving a hail storm of criticism for not only dating a dictator’s son, but stooping to fighting with a woman on social media over a man, Tamala addressed why she found it necessary to call the newly divorced reality star out.
“I came at Porsha to prove she lying,” Tamala told an Instagram follower who came to her defense. “They don’t need anymore heat on how the country’s money is spent, especially when someone is lying about it I wrote to you because you stood up for me & thank you for that. God bless you.”
The “Castle” actress also defended her relationship with Mangue and Equatorial Guinea.
“I don’t care about money…I care about people. Who I date is irrelevant, what I do is. Equatorial Guinea has had a bad rep 4 too long .. I spend time there donating to the 1st ladies school 4 children .. I’m also planning to build a women’s & children health center .. Nobody ever shows the positive .. This country is beautiful & the people are not starving, their public housing is better than some people’s homes in the US .. I wish people would go see things for themselves instead of reading bs!!”
Interestingly, after remaining silent regarding Tamala’s attempt to call her out, Porsha finally responded.
” @TamalaJones TMZ came up with the story take it up with them and your man. You seem cool stop embarassing yourself #notinterestedinhim.”
“@TamalaJones Please stop tweeting me. DM me so I can teach you how to release an official statement to claim your man. #childish.”
Tamala’s publicist Mo Greene then responded to Porsha.
“@Porsha4real Hello Porsha, this is @tamalajones Publicist. Your Latest comment was very unnecessary. My client has not mentioned you in any negative regard.
