Moreover, she reveals, she was blindsided by Bravo’s decision.
Porsha has released a statement through her reps. She begins, “This is not an easy time for me right now, but I want let everyone to know that I loved being a Housewife on The Real Housewives of Atlanta, and I am thankful for Bravo for the opportunity but it’s not goodbye.”
She adds, “After a long season of filming, and giving my all, I was blindsided by the announcement from the network that I was demoted from Housewife Status, but would remain on the show in a ‘Friend’ capacity. Unfortunately, I can only be PORSHA, and portraying anything else, would not be genuine nor honest. This moment is bittersweet, but God has been so amazing to me, and I think this is a perfect time for me to spread my wings, and finally focus on all of my upcoming projects. In addition to having my recurring role on RHOA, I will be able to focus my attention on my career on DISH NATION on the Fox Network, recording my album, and building my businesses.”
Previously, it was reported by TMZ that Porsha was originally a main cast member for this season. However, she was suddenly demoted during filming for being “difficult” and refusing to open up about her personal life.
