After much speculation, it has been confirmed that “Real Housewives of Atlanta” stars Porsha Williams and Cynthia Bailey will not be returning for season 14.
Reporter Anthony Dominic revealed the news.
“I’m told Porsha is NOT returning,” he said, adding that Kandi Burruss and Kenya Moore will be continuing with the show. Drew Sidora and Marlo Hampton will also be returning.
Last month, Porsha announced that she would be exiting the “Dish Nation” radio show after eight years.
“Goodbyes are never easy, and this one is especially hard. For the past eight years, I’ve worked on one of the most fun, collaborative, exciting, and best produced shows on television. But as I continuously start new chapters in my life, it means I have to close others,” she wrote on a post shared to social media.
“Since 2013, everybody at Dish has been like family to me. There’s a lot of people I’ve met along this journey that I am incredibly thankful for. Whether it was on air or behind the scenes, they’ve endlessly supported my career and more importantly, my happiness,” she continued. “Thank you all for an unforgettable run and almost 10 years of my life I am eternally grateful for,” she concluded. “Keep dishing! Love you ♥️.”
Porsha had been dropping hints on social media that she would be stepping away from something to begin a “new chapter” in her life. Many assumed the reality television star was alluding to an exit from “Real Housewives of Atlanta.”
However, Porsha’s relationship with Bravo has not yet come to an end. The reality television star has a three-part special coming to the network.
Fans are hoping to get a behind-the-scenes look at her relationship with her fiance, Simon Guobadia. Simon was the husband of friend of the show, Falynn Pina. Porsha’s engagement announcement almost broke the internet.
