Porsha Williams is continuing to give fans an idea of what to expect in her upcoming book!
Recently, Porsha Williams revealed about her personal life before her memoir was released. As previously reported, the reality TV star had a series of revelations about her journey to where she is today – including battling depression and suicidal thoughts as a child. She also revealed that she had a series interact with disgraced singer R kelly, and she recently provided more information on the subject. She first admitted:
“I had my own business. I had my own house. [But I had] a mentality that has been adjusted over the years of men – that they are better than me. And I’m only valuable if they say I’m valuable. I think I’m in that weak mindset that makes me ready and ready for him to be a predator and look for me. It’s just that in my life at that time, there was another man in a similar position doing the same thing: taking advantage of me. ”
She went on to detail the consequences of her time with R kelly, which she said ended after she heard a woman being beaten up in his home:
“When I got home from that last encounter, I knew I had hit a wall. And I was completely hurt, completely confused as to why this was happening to me as a grown woman.”
Porsha then recalled sharing her story with the FBI years later, revealing how grateful she was after the experience:
“When the FBI left my house that day, I was so grateful that God had brought me to where I am now – my God. I really could have had church right in my lobby. While talking to them, I have to be that Porsha to remember every smallest detail. But after they left, I just looked around my house, I saw my daughter again later, and I just thank God that I survived and got where I am today.”
She also recounted another traumatic relationship she had in her twenties. After going to bed and having breakfast with a man known as “Southern Jon”, the couple started a nasty argument. Later when Porsha refused to share a bed with him, he attacked her. After initially resisting the sexual assault, she revealed that she continued to “lay there.” When the ordeal was over, she said she had a revelation about her choices with men:
“She is looking for love in the wrong place. She wanted something from a man who defied the red flags, anything else, and ended up in a place with another man I loved who took advantage of me. I realized there was a pattern when I saw his gaze. “
In another unfortunate story in her mid-twenties, Porsha Williams also revealed an interaction she had with the former NFL star Clinton Portis. She said she found out she was pregnant with his child when she was 24, and he allegedly responded by saying his mother would raise the child after that. Porsha gave birth. To deal with the situation, Porsha decided to have an abortion.
Regarding her revelation about abortion, Porsha Williams admit:
“Out of everything that I said in the book, it was an easy one. Shame and regret, hurt and loss – these are all feelings that so many women feel. Hopefully another woman who is going through something similar, or has been through something like it, will be able to forgive herself faster than I do. ”
At this point, it should be noted that Porsha also shared how her mother, known as “Ms. Diane “on” RHOA–Reacted to the fact that the reality star would cover these sensitive topics in the memoir. She stated:
“[My mom] say ‘I’m behind you all the way. Whatever you want to do, I fully support you. ‘”
On a lighter note, Porsha Williams then reflect on The Real Housewives of Atlanta. On what she will miss about the franchise, she said:
“I think about sisterhood – I really like it.”
She also talks to her influential former co-stars Nene Leakes had in her life:
“Turn the camera on and off, [Nene was] the voice of reason in my life – help guide me through this crazy divorce, the crazy new world of being a reality star. ”
However, Porsha also touched by her not-so-great sides RHOA stint, said her worst experience was
“Deal with anger management. What I need to do is control my emotions, stay true to my personality and understand what is important. Through going to counseling during that time, I realized ‘You know what? How do you want to leave this world, what legacy do you want to leave? ‘ That’s more important than any controversy.”
She then went on to talk about her decision to leave the show:
“I knew I wanted to retire at 40. After I had my daughter, I just knew it was my world. That’s it. I just wanted to spend as much time with her as possible. And with me in the past dealing with mental health, I knew I needed to be as mentally healthy as possible. No drama etc… Just in a happy peaceful place for my daughter. “
Even so, she still calls her time in RHOA
“A journey that I will never regret.”
She then mentions what inspired her to become more politically active with the Black Lives Matter movement during the 2020 protests, which took place during season 13:
“After I witnessed what happened to George Floyd, I was very sad, very sad. I used to be in pain. I just want to scream from the terrace. And I have to go and be with the people of Atlanta — to take to the streets and try to tell the truth to power, and figure out what we need to do. And through that search, I realized that if I had this background, what would I need to do to make the movement work? It was just something I felt I had to do, and my daughter was on my mind the whole time. “
Final, Porsha reflects on other ways she’s evolved during her time on TV:
“I’m really proud of myself that I was able to grow in a positive direction. I am not stagnant. I grew up as an entrepreneur – I grew up as a woman of character. I really found my voice, right there on television. I have found my way… I am human, I live with my heart on my sleeve. This is me, take it or leave it. And that’s just the way I’ve lived on the show, and I’ve done really well. Because now, even though I’m still imperfect, I love all of me. ”
Porsha .’s Pursuit will drop on Tuesday, November 30. Notably, this will be two days after her premiere new reality show, Porsha’s family affairs.
