Porsha Williams is an American television personality and actress who has starred on the television series The Real Housewives of Atlanta since its fifth season in 2012 and Dish Nation since its second season in 2013 and finished in eighth place on The New Celebrity Apprentice in 2017. She attended Southwest Dekalb High School in Decatur, Georgia as a teenager, and later pursued a degree in business information technology at the American InterContinental University. In September 2012, it was announced by Bravo that Williams and Kenya Moore were cast for the fifth season of the reality television series The Real Housewives of Atlanta, alongside returning cast members Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes, Phaedra Parks, and Kim Zolciak. She made her first appearance of the season during the third episode on November 18, 2012, where she was shown to clash with Moore during a charity event for Feed the Homeless. The remainder of the season documented their ensuing feud and a later conflict with Bailey after she felt that Williams lacked dedication to a pageant Bailey coordinated for her modeling agency.
The sixth season of The Real Housewives of Atlanta premiered in November and documented the deterioration of Williams’s relationship with her husband. She was briefly hospitalized during the season, which the series depicted was caused by stress stemming from her then-ongoing divorce. After an episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta broadcast in December 2013, she received criticism after making comments in which she indicated her belief that the Underground Railroad was an actual railroad line. She later commented that “It was a brain lapse. I have Porsha moments that you’ve seen on the show before. For me seeing that I knew that I had to go back and brush up on my history so I’m representing my legacy well.” She also and joined the cast of Burruss’s stage musical A Mother’s Love. She released her debut single “Flatline” through the iTunes Store on March 17, 2014. Later that month, she received media attention after an altercation with Moore while filming the sixth season reunion for The Real Housewives of Atlanta. While filming the reunion special at the Biltmore Hotel on March 27, Moore implied that Williams was unfaithful during her marriage; after Williams called Moore a “slut from the ’90s” and Moore yelled that Williams was “a dumb ho” from a megaphone, Williams assaulted Moore. Moore later threatened to quit the series if Williams was to remain, commenting that “we’ve become angry with each other, we’ve threatened each other and gone to the edge. But at the end of the day, we know there’s a line.” Williams was arrested on December 29, 2014, for speeding with a suspended license, but was released the same day.
In September 2015, Bravo announced that Williams had signed on to return as a main cast member, along with new cast member and actress Kim Fields. On January 28, 2016, it was announced that she is participating as a contestant on The New Celebrity Apprentice, also known as The Apprentice 15 and The Celebrity Apprentice 8. Since the killing of George Floyd, Williams has worked as an activist and was described by The New York Times as becoming “a crusader against police violence.” On July 15, 2020, Williams was among 87 protesters who were arrested outside the home of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron. She was calling for Cameron to arrest the officers involved in the Shooting of Breonna
