Social Media is buzzing after news of Porsha Williams’ engagement to Simon Guobadia, a man featured this season on Real Housewives of Atlanta as the husband to Porsha’s “friend” Falyn Guobadia.
Williams revealed her relationship with the business executive on her Instagram page Monday, with a caption that read:
“Our relationship began a month ago — yes we are crazy in love. I know it’s fast but we are living life each day to its fullest,” the post read. “I choose happiness every morning and every night. Tuning out all negative energy and only focused on positive wishes. He makes me so happy, and to me, that is what matters most.”
News of the engagement came on May 10, the day after the latest season of RHOA ended. To address the questions of RHOA viewers, Williams posted on Instagram, “Falynn and I are not friends, and Simon’s divorce has been settled.”
The Guobadias announced their decision to divorce in April, and according to People Magazine, their divorce is not yet finalized, only a settlement agreement has been reached.
Williams’ new engagement comes shortly after her split from her ex-fiance, Dennis McKinley. The couple parted ways after the birth of their daughter, Pilar Jhena McKinley in 2019 after McKinley confessed to cheating.
On Mother’s Day, Williams posted a photo of her, Guobadia, and McKinley on her Instagram account that almost broke the internet.
“Simon and Dennis are committed to being respectful and supportive of my happiness in this situation, as well as being the best co-parents they can be to baby PJ,” Williams wrote. “Two Black men stepping up and being amazing people — let’s praise them!!!”
Guobadia has an estimated net worth of $40 million. The businessman was an executive producer for “Jail Dogs” and “Son of the South.” Guobadia has also owned numerous restaurants, and is the founder and CEO of SIMCOL Petroleum and SIMCOL Groups.
Guobadia flaunted the emerald-cut diamond engagement ring he gave to Porsha on Instagram while announcing their relationship, “Did not expect to be blessed with a mate so soon. … I asked her to marry me because we checked ALL of each other’s boxes. … So when I asked… She said yes. That is ALL that mattered.”
What can we say, Ms. Porsha is doing her thang with – NO APOLOGIES!!!
