Porsha Williams has purchased a ginormous house in Duluth. I heard that she had made an offer in July on some property in the hinterlands of Gwinnett county and then didn’t hear anything about it again until this week when she was at the closing signing her giant mortgage. I should probably say co-signing as I believe that her mother had to co-sign the approximately one million dollar mortgage. She posted a video on Instagram showing her signing for her first house since the divorce where she giddily mocked Kordell (like he cares) and thanked her mother (presumably for co-signing). Allegedly. That is how it appeared to me.
Despite the multitudes of reasonably sized homes in the Atlanta area preferred by Kenya and Phaedra, Porsha appears to be going for the biggest house she can find. The new home for the single, childless proud owner is almost 6000 square feet and has five bedrooms and six (rather dreadful) bathrooms. Oh and did I mention Nene Leakes would be her neighbor if Nene ever moves into her house in any meaningful way. Like, you know, with furniture. Both Porsha and Nene will be living in Sugarloaf Country Club! The neighbors are just going to die over this. I can’t wait for the comments here. At least Porsha only paid just over a million for her monstrosity while Nene (over)paid $2 million for her home. Nene’s house is bigger by one bedroom, half a bath and over 3,500 square feet.
Porsha will also be able to luxuriate in front of five separate fireplaces during the cold Atlanta winters and brush up on her golf skills in warmer months in since her back yard backs up to the golf course.

I love this great room and the beautiful staircase that ends in the foyer. I love the floors and the fireplace. It’s a really pretty room. The rest of the house is heavier and very masculine. They even have a room that they refer to as the gentleman’s den that is heavy dark wood. It’s lovely but very masculine.
You can see the dark wood starting in the kitchen. I still like the kitchen. I would not want to pay to cool it in the summer time, but I’d hang out there if my BFF owned the place. I can’t imagine how much a maid charges for a house of this size, but I would not want to pay that either.
Here is the ginormous master bedroom. I’d expect a house in this price range to have hardwood floors throughout. Are they under that wall to wall carpeting? If so I would rip that out of there and buy a super expensive persian rug. Well, I wouldn’t. Because even if I won the Powerball I would never buy in this neighborhood. But if I was trying to design this room to make it look more welcoming, that would be my first step.
This is the master bathroom; Do you have to crawl across two feet of marble on your knees to get in the tub? Then slither across it wet? And that door goes to the shower. It’s marble from top to bottom with a variety of shower heads of different shapes and sizes sticking out at different heights. There is also a marble bench for steaming. I was claustrophobic just looking at the photos. I would bust my ass in this bathroom. But Porsha, as I understand, is quite limber, so she will probably love it!
This is the master closet. It’s plenty big enough and has a lot of shelving. But for some reason it makes me claustrophobic as well. I have an attic in the ghetto shack that I try to access as little as possible because I think attics are creepy. This looks like an attic to me. A hot attic with fluorescent lighting.
There are lots more photos of the other bathrooms and bedrooms that are pictured as children’s bedrooms. Perhaps Porsha’s thought process is a Field of Dreamsish type of “if I buy it, they will eome.” Because I just don’t see Porsha as someone who can live alone in this big ole house. There are way too many places for killers and zombies to hide. There are huge HOA fees, the gas and electric bills will be enormous.
I started this post around 3:00 pm and I plugged in her address and the address of Dish Nation. It’s about 30 miles from home to office for her. At that time the drive FROM her house to Atlanta going against traffic was 48 minutes. The current time is about 4:45 and going from Atlanta to her house MapQuest says will take one hour and seven Or minutes. The good news for her is I think she goes in to work fairly early and gets off in time to dash back out to the hinterlands before evening rush hour. But still, I’d rather live at Phaedra’s house. (I like her neighbors.) Or Kenya’s house. (I love all her windows and trees and that $10,000 stove. ) Or if I just had to live in a giant mausoleum, Sheree’s house if it was mold free and completely finished.
I do not understand a single woman in Atlanta moving into a 6000 square foot house in Sugarloaf. But hey! It’s her money. And allegedly her mama’s.
