On the next episode of Real Housewives of Atlanta we will meet newcomer Porsha Stewart! She is the grand daughter of civil rights activist Hosea Williams, and she is now married to former NFL player Kordell Stewart. Coming from a respected family in the movement, what would her grandfather think of her joining a show such as Real Housewives?
Porsha is aware of the rep the show has, but thinks she brings a new light to it and her grandfather would approve of her making her own decisions. She tells the Atlanta Journal-Constitution of her grandfather, “He called me his little peach. The best little peach of the world. He always talked to us about civil rights and stories about Martin Luther King Jr. And I marched with him in Forsyth County when I was younger. He would trust my judgment. I’m just like him. His motto was ‘Unbought and unbossed.’ I have all of that in me. I’m young and sweet but you can’t take me for granted.”
She plans to bring a new excitement to the show and will stay true to her family’s values. Porsha adds, “I’ve always had a respectable family and a family that supported me. I’m happy to show who I really am. I’m big on respect. If I feel disrespected, I will explain to you what you did. I speak my opinion. I’m outspoken. I am not the one talking about you behind your back. I will say it to your face. I can seem a little harsh but it comes from a good place. At the end of the day, you may love me or hate me or love to hate me.”
Porsha also added her quick take on her cast mates:
Phaedra Parks: “She’s really sweet. She’s got a classy way about her.”
NeNe Leakes: “She’s just funny.”
Cynthia Bailey: “She’s becoming more outspoken.”
Kandi Burruss: “She is also born in Atlanta. She and I are down to earth. We have this experience that’s beautiful and fabulous. We’re country girls at the end of the day.”
Kenya Moore: “I haven’t had the opportunity to get to know her for who she is.”
Kim Zolciak: “She’s really a family girl. It’s all about family for her now.”
I think I am going to like Porsha. She seems to be assertive, but not catty. Thoughts on what Porsha had to say?
