Intriguing Details About Porsha Williams – Her Time on RHOA, Ex-Husband and Net Worth

Porsha Williams is an American television personality, singer, actress, and model. She first surfaced in the limelight in 2011 following her televised lavish wedding to NFL star Kordell Stewart, which was broadcast on WE tv’s Platinum Weddings. Porsha gained further prominence in 2012 when she became a cast on Bravo’s Real Housewives of Atlanta (RHOA).

In addition to the money she earns from the Bravo series, Porsha banks from her luxury hair products line, and as a co-host on Fox TV’s Dish Nation. All of these endeavors account for the wealth she has accumulated over the years but it is vastly believed that her RHOA gig is the biggest source of her income. How true is that?

Porscha Williams’ Rise To Fame as a Reality TV Star

Following years of modeling and appearances in music videos, Porscha Williams became immensely popular in the year 2012, when she was cast midway the 5th season of Real Housewives of Atlanta. She was cast alongside former Miss USA, Kenya Moore, whom she frequently feuds with on the show.

The 6th season of the series featured the wreck of Porsha Williams’ relationship with her husband. The series attributed her brief hospitalization during the season to stress from her then-proceeding divorce. Her feud with Moore showed no sign of abating, as the duo had an altercation during the filming of the 6th season reunion of RHOA in 2014.

Their enmity heightened to the point that Moore threatened to leave the series if Williams was to stay, but she never left. Since joining the series in the 5th season, Porsha Williams has continued to be among the RHOA cast till its current 12th season.

Having earned $700,000 for the 9th season (2016-2017) of RHOA, as well as $1.3 million for the 12th season (2020) of the reality TV show, it is not out of place for one to regard the series as a major source of income for the actress.

Other Contributors to Her $5 Million Net Worth 

After appearing as a supporting actor in the 7th season of RHOA, Porsha signed on as a full cast member for the 8th season which premiered on November 8, 2015. According to authoritative sources, Porsha Williams received as much as $700,000 for the 9th season. She equally pocketed $800,000 in the 10th season of RHOA (2018) and about $1.3 million for the 12th season (2020). Though not a chicken feed, Porscha’s earnings on the show is a far cry from the amount earned by fellow castmates, Kandi Burrus and NeNe Leakes, which is estimated at over $2 million and easily makes them the show’s highest-paid cast members.

Porsha who was raised by entrepreneurial parents has launched a couple of business ventures. She owns a luxury hair product line called Naked!, which she retails online for as much as $110. She also owns an innovative fitness app where she shares the diet and fitness secrets that keep her looking fit.

In an attempt to get over her divorce and move ahead with her career, Porsha Williams dabbled into music. She released her debut single titled “Flatline” in 2014 via the iTunes Store which failed to peak on the charts. Before her musical endeavor, she launched a career as an actress, landing the role of Jada in a stage show titled A Mother’s Love. In addition to that, she played minor roles in Steppin’ Back to Love, Sharknado 5: Global Swarming, Insecure, and Star. More so, she lent her voice to Carlotta in the animated movie, CarGo.

In 2016, Williams appeared on the reality game show, The New Celebrity Apprentice, the eighth installment of The Celebrity Apprentice hosted by Arnold Schwarzenegger who replaced Donald Trump. Unfortunately, she was fired without raising a dime for her charity, “Hosea”. Beyond working as the co-host of the Fox TV nationally-syndicated television program, Dish Nation, the reality TV star has also made guest appearances in several TV shows such as The Wendy Williams Show, The Arsenio Hall Show, and Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen. Through her various endeavors, Porsha Williams has a net worth estimated at $5 million. Without a doubt, she has enjoyed a successful career; can the same be said about her love life?

Juicy Facts About The Actress’ First Marriage

Porsha Williams met her ex-husband Kordell Stewart in 2009 during her time as a model with Lucky Lounge in Atlanta, Georgia. He is a former NFL player who plied his trade as a Quarterback for some top NFL franchise including Pittsburgh Steelers, Chicago Bears, and Baltimore Ravens.

Williams tied the knot with Stewart on May 21, 2011, in an extravagant wedding that was broadcast on WE tv’s Platinum Weddings. Before their marriage, Stewart had a son named Syre with his ex-girlfriend, Tania Richardson. Few years down the line, the TV personality started to attend therapy sessions in order to save her marriage that had started to fall apart. Unfortunately, it was too late as the sessions proved futile. In March 2013, after almost two years of marriage and without children, Stewart filed for divorce from Porscha stating that their marriage was irretrievable.

The divorce proceedings were finalized in December 2013 and widely publicized, thanks to the RHOA series. It was, however, not dramatic; they signed a prenuptial agreement before their marriage. As a result, Porsha didn’t receive a dime from Stewarts’ $16 million net worth. She was also denied entitlements to his future income. The former NFL star got to keep his 2 mansions, his vehicles including a Porshe and Mercedes, alongside his businesses.

A Look At Porscha’s Love Life After The Divorce

Following her divorce, Porsha Williams reportedly dated Equatorial Guinea president, Teodoro Obiang Nguema Mbasogo in 2014. She also had romantic affairs with LeSean McCoy and NFL star, Duke Williams in 2015. Later in June 2018, the comely actress started dating an Atlanta-based businessman and former NFL fullback, Dennis McKinley. After revealing her pregnancy with him in September 2018, she got engaged two weeks later in October. The lovebirds then welcomed their daughter named Pilar Jhena on the 22nd of March 2019.

However, the couple briefly separated a few months later, in June, after the news of Stewart’s infidelity which occurred during Williams’ pregnancy broke out. They later re-engaged in August and began to work on their relationship by having therapy sessions with Williams’ therapist, Dr. Sherry.

In recent times, it has been rumored that Porscha Williams and McKinley got married in Mexico on January 1st, 2020. The couple, however, has remained tight-lipped about the speculations. They only revealed that they are planning to have another child who will be playing with Jhena.

Meet Porsha Williams’ Sister

Porsha has a younger sister named Lauren Williams who occasionally appears on the Real Housewives of Atlanta show. Lauren lives with her older sister and also works for her as an executive assistant, as well as being the co-owner and supervisor of Naked.

The Williams sisters have had their fair share of squabbles as siblings usually do. The two just recently came at odds while discussing the future of their business ventures. Lauren has since left her sister’s home and moved in with her fiance.
