Longtime Real Housewives of Atlanta fans would all agree that Porsha Williams’s dating life has come with plenty of twists and turns. Over the years, we’ve seen the 40-year-old navigate her first marriage to former NFL player Kordell Stewart, and watched her get engaged to businessman Dennis McKinley, with whom she shares daughter Pilar Jhena. However, things have quickly changed in her relationship status.
Throughout the course of the RHOA Season 13 reunion, it was alleged by Marlo Hampton that the star had secretly been dating someone. And while Porsha attempted to keep her private life behind closed doors, she decided to announce that she is, in fact, in a new relationship. So, who is Porsha Williams dating? Here’s the full scoop.
Porsha Williams is currently engaged to Simon Guobadia.
In case you’ve been out of the loop, Porsha delivered the shocking news about her relationship with Simon Guobadia in May 2021. Since Simon is the ex-husband of former RHOA star Falynn Pina Guobadia, the world was not pleased with this information. And as a result, Porsha made it a point to explain the relationship in a lengthy Instagram post.
“For all of you that need facts, I get the optics but Simon filed for divorce from a previous marriage in January,” Porsha wrote on Instagram. “I had nothing to do with their divorce filing. That’s between the two of them.”
She continued, “Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled. Our relationship is a positive, loving step forward in everybody’s lives.”
Porsha and Simon have since decided to take their relationship to the next level by getting engaged a mere week after Falynn announced that she and Simon were getting a divorce. Messy!
However, Porsha and Simon have been rolling full steam ahead with their relationship. Their love story is playing out on Bravo’s Porsha Family Matters.
Porsha and Dennis were an item from 2018 to mid-2019.
Before Simon Guobadia came into the picture, Porsha was in a relationship with Dennis. The pair initially started dating in 2018, and in September of that year, Porsha revealed that they were expecting their first child.
“The thought of me getting that blessing after praying for it for so long and getting that blessing with someone who is just as excited as me — it’s Dennis’ first child, just like me — and it’s something we’ve both always wanted … It’s like a dream come true," Porsha told People at the time.
Porsha and Dennis welcomed their daughter, Pilar Jhena McKinley, in March 2019. Unfortunately, the bliss was short-lived. The couple broke up in June 2019, after Porsha learned Dennis had cheated on her while she was pregnant. They tried to work things out and got re-engaged in December 2019, but it looks like things didn't pan out the second time around, either.
However, Porsha and Dennis now have an amazing co-parenting relationship. On Christmas 2020, the pair joined forces to make the holiday magical for their daughter.
Dennis posted a photo of the family together and captioned it, "Grateful to have the best Mother [and] Daughter combo the world has ever seen. Family. Legacy." "We love you !! Merry Christmas," Porsha wrote in the comments.
Porsha was once married to NFL player Kordell Stewart.
Day One RHOA fans are likely familiar with Kordell! The former NFL player appeared on the franchise when Porsha first joined in Season 5. While both Porsha and Kordell seemed committed to their marriage, things crashed and burned rather quickly.
According to Nicki Swift, Kordell and Porsha divorced due to the former baller’s belief that she was choosing fame over being an actual housewife. Plus, Kordell also felt that Porsha contributed to the gay rumors that circulated about him. After nearly three years of marriage, Kordell filed for divorce in 2013.
However, the failures of Porsha’s previous relationship appear to be the least of her worries. The reality star is now focused on her upcoming marriage to Simon and her entrepreneurial efforts.
